We stayed here for just one night before we started our Costa Rica trip. The hotel is difficult to find at night, even with directions printed out. Get used to no street signs in Costa Rica. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and nice and helped us immediately figuring out our way to the next destination and printing out... More

This hotel was phenomenal at check-in with efficient staff, and easy-going, laid-back front-desk personnel. My dog was welcomed as a true family member, and the room even had a dog bed and dog dishes. The shower head was a luxury as was the HOT water. The "black-out shades" are sheer perfection. Although the hotel is NOT in downtown San Jose,... More

Aloft hotels give the experienced travel what's exactly what's needed. Great front desk staff at this hotel. Let me know I could pay my exit taxes there saving me lots of time at the airport. Great breakfast too.

Although it was a business trip, this hotel has an outstanding atmosphere. It is great to enjoy the happy hour at the Wxyz Bar or just have a good meal in the backyard or at your room. The hotel has a genuine care for the environment, very modern with great design as well as a super friendly crew.

This funky little hotel was recommended by a friend and is a definite winner. Staff are lovely, rooms are clean, secure and well equipped. Bar is great and looking forward to trying out the restaurant during my stay and if you've forgotten and last minute items, the foyer if the most well equipped I've come across in a long time.

First off....When arriving in Costa Rica always look for the Orange taxi's if you don't have a hotel shuttle. They're the legal or "official" taxi. Others are not and they pull up in private cars that look like they borrowed it from a neighbor. Be careful. This is a very boutique-ish type of hotel. It's clean. Reasonably priced for the... More

The ALoft is a good place to spend the night or a relaxing few days away from the bustle of the city. Its a modern, somewhat non-descriptly stylish place (like many Starwood W properties), with decent sized comfortable rooms with good bath amenities and reasonable beds and sound proofing. There is a reasonably acceptable included breakfast, not extravagant but fine,... More
