This seems to be a newer hotel. Rooms and common areas are clean, modern, well kept. All staff encountered were pleasant and helpful. I stayed on a Saturday night and there was a little crowd both at the lobby and in the pool area. Younger crowd. No noise noticed in guest room/floor. No free shuttle from the airport so plan...

I've stayed at several Alofts in different cities. I've even stayed at the Aloft that's not too far from this one it Tempe. The hotels are very consistent in terms of service and facilities. With the latter they're almost all virtually the same in layout and decor...truly a cookie cutter chain. As always my room was comfortable and clean. The... More

I love this hotel. Simply put, everything a business traveler needs or night need is here. Need breakfast before meeting with the client... they have this. Want a drink at the end of the night after work? They have that. little amenities and nice finishes throughout. Whoever designed this brand gets what business travelers want and need. Not expensive and... More

This is a true loft room, hence the name. Not your normal American Hotel room. Very Euro and not very private if you aren't traveling alone or with companion. The pool area is horrible. Very small area with not much deck area for sunning. Anytime after 2pm the hotel blocks all of the sun. I was pretty upset the bar... More

Hotel is close to airport and mill avenue. Limited service which is fine but on a graduation weekend and a ton of business travelers I would have expect the bar to be open earlier than 5pm. Rooms are nice. Pool area is very dirty because of some flowering trees. Bad area for trees that drop flowers if I must say.... More

I really liked this hotel, i knew before my stay there that this was a "business" type hotel and that is fine. I was not there on business but the staff did not seem to mind. The pool area is pretty small but very quiet during the day (which was really nice). Nothing spectacular but i was not expecting anything... More

Having been an SPG member for over 20 years I was excited when they announced the new Aloft product. Unfortunately for a new chain this property shows really bad wear and tear. Summary: Overly perfumed rooms, Hall carpets buckling, worn down rooms with dents and scuffs on walls, showers and bathroom tile that need a good scrubbing. Super slow WiFi... More
