A new boutique hotel could add to the lodging options at Easton Town Center.

Aloft Hotels has proposed building a 136-unit facility for 4190 Alston St. at the northeast corner of Alston and Easton Loop East, south of Worth Avenue.

The five-story, 109,000-square-foot hotel would require a parking variance, according to documents filed with the city of Columbus. The Columbus Board of Zoning Adjustment is expected to consider the request Tuesday, Feb. 27.

Aloft is described as the “next generation of hotel, using technology and design to enhance experiences and move at the pace of our guests,” according to its website.

The hotel also will feature 5,000 square feet of restaurant space.

Another Aloft is in Westerville.
