I'm a fan of Aloft hotels. I'm not sure they are for everyone, but if you like modern, urban, minimalist decor (as some of the reviewers mentioned), then you'll like this hotel. They are not as high end or over the top modern as the W's, but Aloft properties work for me. The lobby is includes a common area (pool... More

the room is not big, and the settings are pretty simple. But decorations are modern, it's clean and quiet, nice and safe feeling environment. the only thing i'm not that satisfied with is the TV, it's very high on the wall therefore a little hard to watch sitting on the bed, or anywhere else.

First impressions are that the Aloft is quite trendy. If I had to summarize the hotel in a few words, I would say its a mix between a higher end European hostel and a globally recognized Swedish furniture store with a touch of utlity. Check in can be interesting, as the area to leave your car is very small, and... More

Wouldnt pay a ton of money to stay here but not bad for under $100. There is no comparison as far as quality to the sister company, Westin, but depends on what you want in your stay. Quick, cheap overnight? Then this place is fine not for luxury though. Eco friendly, urban, minimalist is what comes to mind. Recycling centers,... More

These rooms are very modern and the lobby is nice. The pool is tiny and the staff when I checked in were very in friendly and not helpful. The lobby is very unique and the view from the rooms is great. If you book in advance and receive the $89.99 deal it is worth it, however at $149.99 I would... More

Hipster central in Houston Galleria area for cheap. So what if you can hear the dude whistling in the room next to yours, or that you have to go down to the front desk so the overworked receptionist has to get you ice, or that fact that they don't tell you on the web-site that you have to pay for...

Free, fast wifi, free bottled water, great room, cool lobby and bar, pantry....... This place is a very welcome respite from a day on the road, and the usual nonsense hotels like this usually fleece you for. Great job aloft Houston!

This review mainly to criticize hotel's management in handling late check-in by customers. Due to my delayed flights, we as a group arrived at the hotel around 2 am and we booked and paid in advance 3 double bed queen size bedroom. Before this Houston trip, I stayed in Aloft Phoenix and my booking was in order but apparently Aloft... More

Started out on a rough note, as we couldn't find the entrance, because there isn't a proper one. Have to drive into the parking garage, which wasn't intuitive. The hotel itself is nice and I was somewhat fascinated by the room design. But we could easily hear the TV next door. As all alofts are supposed to be the same... More

Loved the modern design and clean rooms. Friendly staff all around. This location would be great with an outdoor pool, free parking, and in room coffee that wasn't as weak as tea. Comfortable sleep, great rates. We recommend and would stay again.
