I don't usually like modern hotels but Aloft was very likeable with a great atmosphere. The rooms were very convenient and comfortable. Front desk staff was great and the pool and fitness center were very clean and accommodating. The location was great with the mall and plenty of great restaurants in the area.

My husband and I first stayed at an Aloft in Plano, TX, and just generally like the experience the brand is trying to create. Casual but welcoming lobbies, enthusiastic desk staff and their general willingness to do whatever it takes to make your stay better make us return over and over again. What really impressed us the first time, though,... More

We stayed at the Aloft last night. The staff was pleasant and the decor is fun and unique. The other guests, however, were trashy and drunk half the night. The walls are paper thin...we could hear our neighbors getting intimate. There were several loud parties in rooms around ours that went on until about midnight. I wouldn't let my teen... More

This place is superficially nice. At first glance, it looks like a decent place to stay, but once you pay attention to the details, you realize it's all on the surface. The toilet didn't flush, the outlets on the TV didn't work, there was only decaf coffee available in the room, etc. It's like starwood tried to convert a prison... More

I had never stayed in an Aloft hotel but know W quite well. Aloft is like a youth hostel (cheap design and no service) but with a "W touch of design" - everything was average at best with warm water rather than hot, average air conditioning, and average comfort. No breakfast, no room service, no nothing...except a 24h gym. Staff... More

We like to refer to the Aloft Houston at the Galeraia as "Style at a Steal"... Suited best for for the traveler open to possibilities, the Aloft Houston at the Galleria is a modern, fresh, and fun destination that celebrates our guests as individuals and gives you freedom to control and customize your travel adventure to fit your personal style....

A friend and I came to Houston and needed a last minute hotel. We decided on Aloft because it looked modern and the location was perfect (by the galleria). Justin on staff was very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. The hotel has a bar inside and the room was clean and trendy. We enjoyed our stay here and will be back... More

My stay at Aloft was very nice, the staff were very accomodating and the rooms were cozy. I almost felt a little pampered. The lobby area is amped up with brights colors and music and built to let in alot of natural light. The rooms have a nice walk-in shower, 42" tv and FREE wireless internet. The only thing was...

Great little hotel on the trendy side. Staff very accomodating and friendly. Now that I have stayed at this Starwood brand, I will probably seek out other aLoft hotels in others cities that I travel to.

We have offices in Houston and Dallas with Alofts near by, so I have stayed in both more than once. They are a little quirky and retro at first, but they meet all the needs of the road warrior without over doing. The bar is a nice thing to have after a long day and the breakfast /food area in...

Stayed here for a few weeks on business. The staff are all friendly and very helpful - they were all able to call me by my name after only 2 or 3 days! The rooms are quite small with very little space to put your clothes. They have a breakfast service (apart from the little self-service shop), but its eather... More
