In 2015 and in partnership with a local firm, the Aloft Raleigh was built from the ground up and sits adjacent to the iconic NC State Memorial Bell Tower, in the heart of Raleigh. Since then, the hotel has been awarded with the Sir Walter Raleigh Award for Community Appearance in recognition of outstanding new contributions to the character, environment, and appearance of the City of Raleigh.
The construction phase was not complete without adding a special ingredient to the recipe. Thomas Sayre, an American sculpter and painter who designs and builds art projects and private commissions all over the world, was the 'secret sauce', making the Aloft Raleigh a one-of-a-kind. Thomas, a Raleigh native, collaborated with TBC Hotels from the planning stages to build 'The Earth Wall', which transends two floors covering parts of the lobby, bar and exterior parts of the building. The Overtones Sculpture graces the entire facade of the property, a glistening piece of art, seen over a mile away, a nod to the elipse created by the sounds of the belltower.
