After a late landing at RDU, I needed a quick place to crash overnight before an early drive to Charlotte the following day, and wanting to stay within the Starwood family, this Aloft fit the bill. The rooms are standard Aloft layouts, and were clean and comfortable for the seven hours I was there. SPG Keyless was a huge bonus... More

I enjoyed this hotel. Beds were veeeerrrry comfortable and the room was really quite. Furnishings were modern and rather than calling them "Spartan", I think the better term is minimalism. Sleek, space saving and background lighting were pleasant. The only real complaint (or I would have given it a 5 versus the 4) is the water pressure in the shower... More

I have stayed here several times as I have two kids at UNC-Chapel Hill. The hotel is well-located and has a really nice lobby with lots of table and chairs, a pool table, and a nice bar with reasonably priced drinks. It has a decent exercise room. The rooms, however, are not very nice. They are very spartan, with cheap... More

I stayed at this location with family back in June 2015 while going in for a very rare and stressful surgery at the UNC Chapel Hill medical campus just up the street. This hotel is one of the group that participates in a discount program when the SECU House is too full. That is a wonderful thing, but in all... More

We were there on a game weekend for a wedding in Fearrington Village near Pittsboro and were concerned about the traffic. It was no problem. The valet parking make it easy to get going in bad weather. The rooms were comfortable, the walk-in shower is separated from the sink by a door making it convenient for a couple to get... More

We stayed at the Aloft hotel for one night while visiting a friend on campus at UNC. The check-in process was very easy, with a friendly welcome from the staff. We came on a game night, so there was a lot of fan traffic in the parking lot and lobby. Overall, the hotel is very clean, easy to navigate and... More

We came while visiting UNC. They offer a shuttle which was convenient. The hotel has a modern look. My kids liked playing pool in the lobby area. Drinks at the bar for hotel guests are very reasonably priced. There is parking at a nearby garage. There are also several restaurants within walking distance. Check out Raaga.

Fast, friendly check-in. Good rooms, very good black-out curtains let you sleep later than you planned. Wouldn't recommend this hotel for long stays, since there's not much storage space for clothes... just some hangers under a shelf behind a small curtain. Room air conditioner is a bit loud, and took some getting used to so that I could sleep... maybe... More
