Poor staff attitude, housekeeping is horrible,multiple staff members on their peronsal cell phones, both maintenance & housekeeping needs to pay attention to detail, to sum it all up as a business leader I would clean house.

I checked into this hotel only to find that the toilet was plugged up. The front desk said they would send someone up to fix it. While I was waiting I found out the safe wouldn't open. I called the front desk and they informed me that no engineer was available at night. They also admitted that they couldn't fix... More

My wife and I stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. First visit to one of these properties. We would stay again. Very compact and very efficient layout of the room. Upstairs for commercial spaces. Located in a new walk/drive community with lots of places to eat, drink and shop nearby. Very nice staff.

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
