First of all - from the moment we walked into this place, it was clear that we were not the target group for this hotel brand, and this will be reflected in my review. This hotel is obviously marketed to 20-somethings who want something that's hip and not too expensive, so my husband and I are 10+ years away from... More

We recently stayed at the Aloft during a visit to University of Richmond. We had been told of the Short Pump/Glen Allen area and wanted to see what it was about. The Aloft is situated near tons of restaurants and shopping, some of it within walking. The staff there was very hospitable, especially Meredith, who checked us in. She was... More

Very disappointed in this hotel. It tries to be cool and fails miserably. I felt like I was staying in a college dorm hall. When I checked in, I asked if the restaurant downstairs was open. I was given a typed menu and was told I could order at the bar. I asked if it was the same food as... More

This was a second stay at Aloft and it is going to be a regular stop on our annual trip to North Carolina. The location is great, the staff is friendly and helpful and the lobby is a great place to kick back and relax. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for the night.

Stayed here using my SPG points to break up a trip down to the beach. Worked out really well for us. Very good restaurants nearby (Burger Bach was awesome!) and also had a Whole Foods that we were able to hit for some healthy snacks for our road trip. This was your typical Aloft setup. Modern, clean, and easy to... More

This place is a post modern hotel. That's cool until you realize that your room is the size of one you'd get on a cruise ship. They also have a neat bar in the lobby. It's a cool place but the rooms are a bit too small for my liking. Upside is it's within walking distance to a row of... More

This place had a real chance. Great little neighborhood with shops, restaurants, and entertainment in walking distance. The design is cool and the people are great. We even met the GM in the bar and he was delightful. All of this, however, cannot make up for (like much of new construction these days), the place looks nice but isn't quality.... More

Stopped by for a night visit while passing through Richmond and was not disappointed. Very nice property and stay. Check-in was quick and easy. Room was great and clean. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Easy to get to and close to restaurants (shoot it's over one) and shopping. Will be back the next time I'm in Richmond.

Great atmosphere, excellent customer service, convenient to dining and shopping, loved the look of the room, but the beds are the most uncomfortable we have ever attempted to sleep in. Our kid moved to the bench under the tv and said that was OK, we toughed it out on one of the beds but probably would've been more comfortable on... More
