5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was here on business for one night and Aloft was close to where my meetings were. Check-in was easy and the staff very friendly. My room was spacious and clean. The free bottled water was a nice addition. Will definitely stay again when I'm in the area.

When we arrived, the computer system was down (in Silicon Valley, no less) so we couldn't check in but we were given vouchers for drinks in the lounge while the system was repaired. A nice gesture. The food and drink in the lounge were just average but the service behind the bar was good. Our rooms were large with a... More

Overall I like this hotel as the rooms are spacious and well appointed. However, I recently stayed and the rooms smelled poorly and were cold. There were also odd groups of people parked in the back of the hotel late at night. It appeared as if they were casing the parking lot. The food service was very poor as 2... More

Recently I moved to the area and needed to stay for two to three weeks before moving into a more permanent place. I found the hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful, particularly Anna L.. The hotel has good amenities and with a convenient location. My stay was pleasant and comfortable the entire time.

This is not your typical Aloft. The building was from a former hotel. Most Aloft Hotels look modern and trendy. However, the interior was a a little less typical of an Aloft hotel. And that's not such a bad thing, either. The lobby was big and airy. The rooms were big and suite-like. There was a kitchenette, but no silverware... More
