We stayed for a few days while our kids attended Carolina basketball camp. Staff was pleasant & the property is conveniently located near a grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants and grassy areas perfect for walking dogs. Pet bowls and a bed were provided for our puppy.

It is a hip funky place that was comfy, and they were nice to our dog. But, it's not worth the money and paying for parking seems rude and unnecessary. Find a cheaper place with a free breakfast and free parking. Also, lots of locals taxes added to the

I have been mariott Platinum Member for 10 years and lifetime platinum. This was the first a lost or SPG property I've stayed at in 6 years. My first impression coming in at 5 p.m was it was clearly not a marriott and that seems to be their point. Although I understand most of these a loft properties are very... More

Starwood's "W" Jr. property is ALOFT. "W" probably sets the standard for NEW DESIGN hotels. Aloft follows right along for considerably less the price. The hotel in Chapel Hill is minutes from the UNC campus, ten minutes from Duke, and in easy distance of the top malls and grocery stores. FRESH FOODS, a very upscale food emporium is right next...

We only stayed one night - we were in Chapel Hill to visit a friend in the hospital at UNC. I've stayed in several other SPG properties, always with good results. My first impression of the hotel was it was very modern and trendy which made me a little nervous. But my fears were unfounded. We had a very comfortable... More

We had only stayed at one other Aloft before, the one in Leawood, Kansas. The room we stayed at here was virtually identical to that one. Indeed, we thought we were back in Kansas. The only difference we could find was that the thermostat was located on a different wall--no joke. After having many hit or misses with various Hilton... More

This stay was my first experience in an Aloft. The concept is refreshing; the feel of the hotel is modern and fun - a perfect place for a stay with a teenager. Check-in was a breeze, the staff is friendly. Rooms afforded a good night's sleep with comfortable beds and shades to keep the room dark. The location is just... More

I arrived yesterday with two teens in tow. The purchase of this trip was for my 15 year old to attend camp at UNC. It's a good location. The value exceptional. The room is large enough for three with ample storage, two queen platform beds, work area, large flatscreen TV, BLISS products, and small sitting area. Very pleased. There is... More
