The only reason to choose this hotel is proximity to the office in Newark, CA area. The rooms are spacious and nice however breakfast is a big disappointment. Firstly the breakfast is not included in the room fare. Secondly it takes ages to order something which contradicts the entire concept of a business hotel. No other amenities available like shuttle... More

I called the front desk, no answer.... More

I am in the Bay Area at least once or twice a month on business and this is always my first choice for my stay. Centrally located between SFO and SJC it is a quick 30 min trip from either during non-peak times. Having been a W in its previous life there is little in resemblance to a typical Aloft... More

I had stayed at the W various times in the past, so I was eager to see how the property has been transformed into an Aloft. I've always loved quiet location, great weekend rates and proximity to SFO. For me, there weren't any dramatic changes other than the reception staff being much more welcoming than when it was a W.... More

Having stayed at many W Hotels, this was far from one! Having read many of the reviews from the rebranded "Aloft" who knows.. Ask if the carpet has been changed since the redo, because if not be prepared. You'll have that outdoors marshy smell and beware if you have allergies. My co-worker couldn't take it and went downstairs at 3am... More

The Aloft is totally new and very pleasant compared to when it was a "W". They have made the hotel much brighter inside and the staff is extremely friendly. The restaurant is also much improved. I would highly recommend if you are in the area, stay at this hotel - you'll be glad you did! I give high marks to... More

The hotel amenities were great, my issue was in the Billing Dept. It took several long distance calls to correct but not to my satisfaction. My friend who spoke with the General Manager on several occasions still ended with a bill for $2.15.

Aloft means to me, young people, stylish atmosphere, Loft-like rooms, a pool table - Aloft. Been to some of them and all "more or less" are Aloft-like. Cupertino was sold out, Millbrae to far away, so why not trying the "new" Aloft in Newark... that´s what i thought. Approaching the hotel, it looks like any other given hotel, but NOT... More
