Aloft Raleigh shares the rich history Raleigh and North Carolina State University boast to this day. The exterior of our hotel features two designs that represent both the history of NC State, and the future the university holds. They meet together behind a 55-foot tall sculpture constructed by local artist Thomas Sayre.
Sitting across the street from Aloft Raleigh is NC State's famous Bell Tower. This monument honors all of the NC State alumni killed during World War I, and construction began on it in 1921. After years of halted construction due to the Great Depression and World War II, the Bell Tower was finally completed and dedicated in 1949. Featuring 35 names of fallen men, this Bell Tower is another representation of the rich history Raleigh has to offer.
