As we continue to build the aloft hotel inside of Second Life, we've started showing people what the actual island of aloft looks like.
If you're currently a resident of Second Life, you can teleport to a neighboring sim called Argali. There you can peer in from the Argali border. You will need to raise your draw distances to see it. Draw distance (in the preferences, graphics tab) determines how far out objects "rez" i.e. show themselves. If you set your draw distance to 256 meters you should be able to get a good look at the hotel.
You can drop onto Argali by clicking on this link.
