Looking for a new spot that accepted pets we were delighted to find the Aloft just off 15/501. We found the staff efficient, friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and a comfortable bed was a big plus

We stayed at this property for one night. the hotel is very well kept with great customer service and in a quiet but lively area with many places to eat. Our requests for connecting rooms was honored and we had no trouble at all during our stay. Highly recommend!

The rooms are small and compact, well organized and efficient. Reminds me of European layouts. Good shower, mounted soap and shampoo, free bottles of water. Very clean. Staff is friendly. Free coffee 24 hours. They offer made to order breakfast. Parking was $10. Convenient short drive to downtown area and university. We had a pleasant stay.

Very clean and comfortable room. Really appreciated the fact that the shower had a very strong stream and shampoo/soap came out of mounted dispensers. Lots of amenities in the lobby including a bar, pool table and outdoor deck (an indoor pool was the only disappointment). Great walking paths nearby.

Excellent find at reasonable prices for Chapel Hill area. European styling - clean, neat, contemporary and very efficient design, meant to accommodate a short-term traveler's needs without fuss. If you've traveled Europe and stayed at and enjoyed lower-cost business hotels, you will be pleased. Friendly and efficient staff, very accommodating. They also treat Starwood members very well.

Probably my favorite hotel in Chapel Hill. Not as luxurious as the Carolina Inn but a great value and very convenient. The hotel is very bright, the rooms are quite spacious with nice TVs. It has a modern feel (a little cliche some times) but still nice size rooms and good amenities. I also like the snack bar area, better... More

This was the worst hotel billing experience I've ever had. I booked a 2 night prepaid rate on the hotel's website, and my card was correctly charged for it, although for some reason Aloft refers to their prepaid charge as a "deposit" on arrival. The next morning I checked my account, and saw three pre-authorizations: one for the actual room... More

We were looking for a hotel from which we could easily access University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. The Aloft hotel is pretty easy to find coming from the RDU airport. It is about 5 minutes drive to the university - but be forewarned that parking is very difficult to find on university grounds. There was a grocery store... More

My kids and I stayed here, we thought the room was spacious and we'll appointed. We heard no sounds outside our room, other than normal street noise. This was not a big problem. The Chris was extremely helpful and friendly as well as the valet staff. Parking would be a problem, but understandable because of how close University of North... More

The room was small and uncomfortable. The elevators looked like they had weird colored moving blankets lining the walls. We felt like we were in a padded cell. The floors in common areas were bare cement. The beds were not comfortable. Parking is $10 which is crazy for the area. There is no closet, just pegs to hang your cloths... More
