“Jakarta is a pulsating metropolis with a vibrant social scene,” said Mike Fulkerson, vice president, brand & marketing, Asia-Pacific, Marriott International. “The new Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim is bound to become a buzzing hub for global travelers and locals to connect over great live music from up-and-coming bands.”

Located in Central Jakarta area, the capital’s central business district, the hotel is perfectly suited for business travelers and globetrotters alike. It features 180 rooms that boast urban and locally influenced design. The works of Indonesian artists such as Nugraha Pratama and Nur Cahyono that show Jakarta’s rich culture and heritage are present in the guest rooms and public areas. When it comes down to business, Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim is equipped with a meeting space that includes eight conference rooms, with a total area of 1,507 square feet.

As for the dining scene, there are delicious cocktails with a touch of traditional ingredients available at WXYZ Bar.
