I stayed at aloft Birmingham a few weeks ago for a wedding. Every person I encountered was friendly and helpful. The lobby was much more than a place to walk through to get to the elevator, it was a vibrant gathering place. Colorful, relaxing, comfortable and fun! There are games to play, great drinks and comfy couches. The rooms were... More

Newer and hipper, the best improvement for me is that there's a shower instead of a tub/shower. Room was roomy for 2 adults and 2 kids. Steakhouse was just average but the service was great. Sheraton app had messed up our reservation but the desk staff went overboard to help. Only stayed a night but I'd stay again.

I stayed here 5 days while on a business trip and loved it. Very neat to come back to a hotel with upbeat music playing in a lounge full of guests having a few drinks and socializing. Although the pool is so small I would never stay here while traveling with family. See photos posted by iGrade.

I stayed once on business, I loved the modern look of the hotel, both common areas and the room. The lobby and bar area were laid back, lots of reading material, not a stuffy or high pressure environment at all. The place was walking distance to multiple great places to eat, coffee shops, etc. Staff was friendly and attentive. As... More

my room faces a parking garage. I can hear the elevator loudly every time it moves. The cavernous lobby echoes so terribly that its like 20 people screaming outside my door. HORRIBLE. This is a weak attempt to provide something modern. I don't know who the architect was on this project, but they're a joke. The biggest waste of space... More

We stay here when visiting family. Rooms are very modern and are beginning to look tired. Easy walk to good restaurants and shops. Nice bar in the lobby and a fully stocked snack area is open 24 hours per day.

This hotel is contemporary in style and function. We stayed here for a wedding weekend at the end of June. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the hotel sports an indoor pool and a small, but very adequate gym. The neighborhood is very good, being within walking distance of many interesting shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, etc. The... More

This is a nice little corner of Homewood with some fun restaurants and bars within walking distant. The hotel is your standard ALOFT, which I like. Functional. Slightly minimalist. Kind of cool. Very friendly staff. My room had some minor issues that I did report to the staff such as a dead bolt that didn't seem to like to unlock... More

Stayed here recently for business and was very impressed. Loved the neighborhood - tons of great restaurants and bars close by. All within walking distance. The hotel was very tasteful as well - well appointed lobby, nice bar. Room was perfect - awesome bedding, great bathroom. Courteous staff too. Very nice experience.
