  2. Your comment in that the Aloft Sunnyvale represents the brand's first adaptive reuse project is incorrect. For example, both the Aloft Downtown Atlanta and the Aloft Downtown Dallas are both adaptive reuse projects currently in service. I also believe the Aloft brand did a corporate owned adaptive reuse conversion at SFO airport.

    • Hello SY, this article does not mention the Aloft Sunnyvale. Did you mean to write this comment on another article? Kind regards.

  3. The comment was in reference to page 5 of "In Focus: Silicon Valley Hotel Market Update". There was also another error on page 5 in referencing the "w xyz bar" as "w zyx bar".
