I think I am sort of the youngish professional that Aloft targets. I like modern decor, minimalist settings, etc. I was looking forward to staying at a modern property for a change of pace on a business trip. But this property is so hip that it feels almost grungy and a bit depressing. The decor is very dark, and the... More

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip, and this hotel was phenomenal. The staff was excellent and very professional. I loved my room, it had a very modern feel to it. I would recommend this hotel again!!!

Aloft rooms are consistent across the chain, hip loft style. Another cool Aloft offering in NC, targeting the young upwardly mobile professional. Is it still called a yuppie? Anyways, clean and modern and hip with decent service. I like staying at Aloft hotels, it's like being at a startup. I recommend.

Front desk staff need to be trained. Don't waste your time on breakfast. Breakfast sandwich was Stale bread with overcooked eggs and sausage that was cold by time cook got off phone and handed it to you. Several broken appliances in room and a very institutionalized feeling in the rooms. Felt more like dormitory than hotel room.. Going to try... More

The Aloft Chapel Hill has very clean and modern rooms. The layout is an open concept and even though the SQ footage isn't that large, you hardly notice as the furniture is very well laid out. The rooms have free bottled water/coffee/tea replenished each day, nice touch as just about everywhere else charges for these things. If your attending an... More

New upholstery in the lobby alerted us to changes since our February at Aloft. The excellent maintenance staff remains but Reception is all new and in need of training. A sick cook was the lame answer to why there was no hot breakfast one cold morning. The option suggested? Old salad and green bananas! And fellas, proffering breakfast chits is... More

If you've been to an Aloft, then this property will be just like the others. I booked two rooms for us to stay during Thanksgiving and was surprised to find pretty reasonable rates. Check-in was quick and my SPG Platinum status was noted and I was thanked several times for my business. Given multiple $7 coupons to use for breakfast... More

Very clean and modern hotel. Smaller euro style rooms, but well laid out and roomy feeling. Check in was easy and the new manager was very friendly. The lobby has modern furnishings, a bar with very reasonable drinks (draft & bottle) and a pool table. A sitting area with nooks and a gas fireplace made it all very warm and... More

This self-proclaimed hip hotel (“a vision of W hotels”) may try a little too hard with its décor (cartoons of DJs), but delivers when it comes to comfort. The rooms have a bit of Scandinavian simple elegance (ever stayed in Sweden or Norway?), with bathroom area back-to-back to bedroom area making the closet kind of book shelf arrangement. But the...

Aloft has wonderful rooms, well appointed, great indoor pool and exercise room and lovely concierge to purchase breakfast and light fare. It is the front desk staff which is lacking. No smile, friendly "hello" or "welcome" from the woman at the front desk. In fact she acted like I was bothering her even though there was no one else at... More
