LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A modern hotel in Louisville is expanding from downtown to the east side of town.
Aloft Hotel is now open at 10700 Westport Road, exactly 18 miles from the Louisville International Airport, with plenty of parking lot space.

Louisville's first Aloft location operates on East Main Street. The hotel's owners hope to spread its excitement from downtown to east Louisville.

The new spot is designed with bright, bold colors, exposed ceilings and concrete floors. It's a design the owners compare to something found in New Orleans.
"We hope to get all generations, but mostly the young," owner Zedtta Wellman said. "The rooms are designed to basically get in there, come downstairs, spend some money at the bar and get out into the community, spend money and have fun."
