Checkin was on the second floor of the building. We were greeted warmly and given 2 adjoining rooms and a STACK of drink coupons due to my friend's SPG Plat status. Typical Aloft rooms which is to say, functional with a hint of modern.
Great shower with insane water pressure and huge rain shower head (always a plus). In fact, the shower put out so much steam that all we had to do was hang up a shirt from the shower door and it would be steamed free of wrinkles by the time you were finished showering.
We spent an afternoon by the pool after visiting the nearby Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Cool little bar out there where we put those drink coupons to use. Staff was exceedingly friendly at all times.
Breakfast buffet was just OK in my opinion. I guess I miss pork bacon and sausage in those situations.
Rooftop terrace was undergoing renovations when we were there so didn't get to hit that up.
As far as the location..true, it's not near the Corniche or Saadiyat Island but cabs are so cheap in AD it shouldn't really be a deal breaker.
Overall a wonderful stay with no complaints. True, it's not a 5-star resort, but for the price, it can't be beat.
