I am not sure what some others' were thinking with negative reviews of the Aloft Hotel. Number one, it is in a great location....at the epicenter where everything is at in Charlotte, and where a bulk of the nightlife is. The hotel itself has very trendy rooms, beds are comfortable, the room is moderately spaced , and plenty of light... More

We stayed at Aloft Charlotte Uptown at the Epicentre for 3 nights. We were familiar with the location and knew that it would be busy over the weekend. The hotel is decorated in a nice modern style but doesn't get much light. Rooms, hallways and elevators were dark. Upon check in the desk host was very warm and told us... More

Dear Kandi6096, Please accept my apology for the noise you experienced during you stay with us. I am aware of the potential for such challenges in the vibrant EpiCentre. If you ever consider giving us another opportunity to serve you, please make a request on your reservation to have a room on the "quiet" side of the hotel. While we... More

Aloft is a cool, trendy hotel with an excellent location. My room was fairly large, with new and modern textiles, a large flatscreen TV, safe, coffee maker, fridge and AC. I had a great view of the centre of Charlotte. Aloft is a prt of the Epicentre, which is the hot spot in town, with restaurants, bars, movie theatre and... More

Dear Summer_angel04, Thank you for your comments! Our team appreciates hearing from guests that "get" the Aloft vision. We were designed to be a savvy alternative to the "cookie-cutter" hotel. We accept that the style and service may not appeal to everyone; I'm just thankful that it appealed to you! Hopefully we will have an opportunity of serving you again... More

This is a very modern, attractive and comfortable hotel. Right from the start entering the lobby you will notice its city-chic and 'hip' style. The rooms are fairly spacious with a nice sized bed, a massive flatscreen HD tv, free wifi, a big walk in shower, coffee maker with herbal teas too, and very decent toiletries from Bliss. The bed...

We stayed at this hotel this past weekend for our one year anniversary. I'll start with the positive...the location was wonderful!! The epicentre is so nice and has something for everyone. We were never bored! The room was clean and nicely laid out. We expected a smaller room, (since it is a LOFT hotel!) so the fact that it was... More

My sister and I stayed for a week-end. We were in Charlotte to surprise my niece for her birthday. She held her party at Aloft which is why we decided to stay. First of all we didn't know how to enter the hotel, turns out you go into a parking garage and go up an elevator to the 5th floor... More

Charlotte is a beautiful city and the Aloft Hotel at the EpiCentre puts you right where the action is. That can be a good or a bad thing. The EpiCentre is an adult entertainment complex which means the weekends are filled with loud drunk people vomiting in the elevators and running through the hallways. Take my advice and request a...
