Aloft Hotel in Portland, Maine, is a beautiful new place to stay in one of the most picturesque towns on the East Coast.
The hotel’s modern, stylish rooms allow guests to take in the dynamic waterfront views of Portland. Guests can exercise at Aloft’s fitness center or grab food at the hotel’s casual refuel market that’s open for dinner, signature cocktails, and live acoustic performances. Aloft also offers meeting space for intimate events or conferences.
When Aloft opened in September 2021, the restrooms required pressure-assisted toilets to withstand the high usage associated with guests in nearly 160 rooms. The hotel specified ultra-high-efficiency Flushmate 504 Series systems using 1.0 gallons per flush, which have a proven track record of water savings, reliability, and reduced maintenance.
In addition to water savings and ease of maintenance, Flushmate 504 systems are commonly specified in hotels like Aloft because of their powerful flush performance. Flushmate pressure-assisted systems offer the best opportunity to achieve maximum water conservation without sacrificing performance.
Steven Fennell, director of engineering, Aloft Hotel, and NAHLE certified chief engineer, said the Flushmate 504 systems have performed consistently well at the hotel since its opening. “The Flushmate 504 systems have been reliable,” Fennell said.
