I stay here a few times a year for work, usually for a week or two at a time. I think at this stage I've been here ten times. You can do better, but you can certainly do worse. I keep coming back because it's cheap, not horribly inconvenient, and spacious. Location: If you have a car, great. Otherwise, good... More

The only reason I am giving it 2 stars is the location (otherwise 1). It is very convenient for the Newark/Fremont area, but at the same time close to Silicon Valley. I've spent (unfortunately) quite some nights here due to the convenience, both in the W incarnation and now that it is Aloft. As if the mgmt. knew about their... More

This place is one of the nicer hotels. The sleeping area and living room sections almost seem separate and it has a wet bar. They have a mini-safe attached in the closet so you can feel more secure about leaving personal items if you go out. They give extra points if you are a "green" guest and don't require new... More

Great price, very beautiful, neat and clean hotel. It is just beside coyote hills. Wonderful location as this is beside the bay and Dumberton bridge. The staffs were helpful. Like the robot for guest service.

I've stayed at this location a couple of times already and that's why we picked Aloft Newark again to stay at for Thanksgiving week to visit family. It is close to everything. However, that week happened to be a little chilly week. Noticed that the front/lobby door (is not double door) so when it open you feel the cold air... More

I've stayed here before you might think....and you'd be right. This was one of the first W hotels when the brand launched in the early 2000's and to my knowledge, was the first W suites. Oh how time has changed and then again not really. While it's now branded as an aLoft hotel, much of the interior decorations, furniture and... More

This is my new FAVORITE Place to stay in NorCal! Good price, great location, and very friendly staff. The Manager, Joshua, went out of his way to ensure we had a great stay! Talk about Customer Service!!!

My first visit to Silicon Valley did not disappoint. Aloft Silicon Valley fit perfectly into the hip culture with swanky decor, smooth service and even a robot butler to deliver snacks. It was exactly was you would expect in Silicon Valley -- and maybe even a little more. The rooms were over-sized. The shower and amenities were first rate and... More

First impression was that this was a very clean and very hip hotel. Check in desk was a small semi circle, very unusual. The bad parts were: a little overly green..... 2 towels in bathroom.... a little noisy... heard the noise from the hallway... Those would seem to be constants On the Sunday we were checking out, the complementary coffee... More

I stayed here for 3 night on a business trip. The hotel is nice and has an alright service. The rooms are a bit dated, and the shower had lukewarm water which was annoying for me as I like hot water showers. The location of the hotel is far from everything and for that alone I will do my best... More
