This was my first stay in an Aloft, though I've stayed at many W Hotels around the country. From what I understand, Aloft is the stripped down, more cost-effective version of the W, with fewer of the amenities one expects from a stylish modern hotel, but retaining the stylish, trendy feel. I'd say that sums it up. Aloft Birmingham definitely... More

My husband and I had a night out from our 5 month old and 23 month old to try to get a restful night of sleep. Around 11:30 pm we were woken as we heard someone trying to get into our room. My husband went to the door to let the other guests know they had the wrong room. As... More

As with all Aloft's pretty minimal in terms of frills and extras, but perfect for the business traveler. Nice clean room, free internet, very quiet and a decent bar to have a drink at the end of the day. Very good value given the price point.

Small town, quaint area. I chose this location knowing it was just a sleepover and I rarely book "exit" hotels. Very clean, modern, helpful accomodating staff. Had family in tow, so the adjoining rooms were a good thing.

Arriving at this hotel, you can park behind or in front of the hotel. Check in was fast and efficient. The room is the standard Aloft room with a large king bed and work area and bathroom. Very comfortable overall and good for working in the room. Did not have room cleaned for a "green" initiative which gives extra benefits... More

I arranged a group of 6 rooms here. The rooms were very nice and this hotel is in a great section of town to walk to a few other venues. The hotel has a nice bar. They have a unique cafe area that even made sandwiches, etc. No continental breakfast which was fine by me. The staff is very friendly... More

As "seasoned" travelers we have been all over the world and this hotel reminded us of a mid level European hotel. The room was tight with a king size bed, but every space in the room was utilized. The lobby did not have carpet but was open and included games and a pool table. What really set this hotel apart... More

We stayed here on a Thursday night. Check-in was a breeze. The staff was very professional & courteous. The room was spotless & the bed comfortable. My only regret was that we weren't staying longer. When traveling through this area again next year; we will be staying here.

Perhaps my review should be better as the staff was great and the location suited me well; however, the style of the Aloft brand is likely not my style (open airy lofts that are loud as the noise carries). I also don't like the separate unit style AC units - but other than the things that likely can't be changed... More

I spent a night at aloft Birmingham and wished I were staying longer. The location is perfect for the business traveler to walk to lunch or dinner. The place was immaculate and loaded with character. I happened to be there during college football season and joked with Alabama fans about their feuds with LSU, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. Then admitted... More
