There are many things that fill us up with magical joy here at House of Coco, one of those things is a 24-hour adventure!
We were privileged enough to have been invited to the sold-out Gerry Cinnamon gig up in Aberdeen, which turned out to be Scotlands biggest ever indoor show, making us 2 of a 15,000 strong crowd.
And after all of the bouncing, singing, and drinking it was a mere 30 second ish walk back to the entrance of our hotel.
The Aloft Aberdeen TECA is part of the new world-class complex for entertainment, conferences and stays.
If you’re taking in a show in 2020, check to see if your favourite artist is playing P&J Live Arena and get yourself booked into the Aloft.
The hotel is very cool. It’s modern and new but with a very ‘downtown’ urban feel to the decor. So it’s comfortable but you feel the luxury in its newness.
It literally takes 10 minutes in a taxi or a really nice 20-minute walk from the airport to get there, so the vibrant informal check-in area with bar, dining area, and pool table make for a comfortable welcome.
Me and one of the girls checked into our twin room overlooking the arena entrance and quickly got on the technology hype of the Aloft hotels! The WIFI is super fast, so we found a Gerry Cinnamon playlist on Youtube, cast it to the massive TV, and danced around getting ready.
The rooms are incredible. They utilise a very ‘city loft’ style of design in that every bit of the space is uncompromisingly useful. There’s still plenty of space for two people with clothes and make up all over to do the obligatory pre-going-out fashion show, and pillows as fluffy as clouds to fall into post-going-out.
The Aloft Aberdeen TECA isn’t just a stay. If you’re off to a gig and you’ve got a choice of going to a venue near you or grabbing a flight up to Aberdeen, do it there instead. Book a package. Stay at the Aloft.
Enjoy the pre-gig live music they have in the bar, the up to date info they have on the screens all around you, and the absolutely banging supper snacks they have pumping out of the breakfast room to soak up the whiskey before bed.
