5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

A nice, clean place to stay in Ahmedabad. Helpful, friendly staff, and good food. The Internet service was fast. The showers are good with plenty of hot water. The staff was gear to assist with any need.

Room Tip: Room was comfortable

Rooms are big and fitted with all required gadgets, toiletry range and bath products are good, but still bath experience is bad....Should work on shower type & water pressure & also think of hand shower provision....

Food is awesome and rich in verity....salute to chef...Broccoli never tested so good...Best start of the day...

Bathroom hygiene is one thing they should improve upon, things were not clean and wash basin was not functioning properly...Hotel staff is responsive and quickly fixed the same...but all these things should be checked before giving the room...

Staff was very supportive…Restaurant experience is the best in the hotel…

I stayed at Aloft Ahmedabad for 2 nights while I was attending a family gathering in the city. The hotel is not fully complete yet and still needs quite a few finishing touches. It has all the typical elements of a regular Aloft hotel but lacks the detailing that I have seen at some of their other properties. For example, the wheelchair ramp has grooves facing downwards instead of upwards which is actually counter-productive in moving up the ramp for handicap people. Also, the elevator switches are a touch-pad type but not very sensitive hence, it needed to be tapped multiple times before it responds. 2 of the 4 elevators weren't operational, and even the 2 that were operational had separate call buttons and weren't linked.

The hotel sign is extremely insignificant from the main highway as well making it slightly hard to spot the hotel when you arrive for the first time especially if it is night.

One beautiful thing about the hotel is the artwork that they have displayed in the corridors; very contemporary!

Room Tip: Pick a room with windows facing the front of the hotel

This was my worst experience ever in a SPG Hotel. The overall impression of the hotel is a "quick and dirty" built hotel. The neon lights under the windows, looks as if you have arrived in a brothel.

In spite my privileged SPG Platinum status the check-in procedure was tedious and time taking. Same applies for the check-out, which took believe it or not more than 35 minutes. Then only 2 out of the 4 elevators were in operation causing long waiting time to get to the room. The hallway is furnied with a poor quality dark brown carpet already dirty and stained in spite the hotel only opened mid 2013. The room likewise, dirty carpet, dirty room, stained bathroom, low water pressure. poorly filled minibar, which was not refilled for the second night. Male local partying in their room drinking and smoking with open door to the hall way contributing to the already high outside noise. The management and staff are poorly trainined and unqualified. The fitness room is a disaster. Carpeted bare room with a few treadmills and equipment. There is no heart in this hotel and it is completely unworthy of beeing part of the SPG group.

I will for sure never again stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Not worth it. All rooms are of similar poor quality and location.

Neat and clean rooms. great value for money.

My booking was through travel agent, I paid the room charges in Dubai but upon check-in the hotel insisted me to pay directly. next day reception staff informed me that they received the payment and it is already sorted-out but again at the time of check-out reception asked me to settle the room charges directly. Had to explain the scenario, they internally made some communication and allowed me to check-out.

During my stay at around 1.15 mid night somebody opened my room and closed it immediately. I wakeup and look outside, some trolley was lying out but could not find any one. informed reception two times but no one reverted me back.

Situated on the highway, Aloft is strategically at a nice location. Though the property is quite new, staff seemed very well trained & efficient. Beds are really comfortable, so is the ambience of rooms. Keeping in mind business traveller needs, shoe mint was carefully provided in rooms. Free WiFi is also available in the rooms but you can connect only one device at a time. In-the room food/ mini bar is quite expensive. Better to bring some munching items along for emergencies. Windows are quite small, so one needs to get out of the room to feel the world outside. The cab service that hotel has tie-up with is expensive. Better to go for Apple Cabs.(~ 25% cheaper)

Hotel still in startup phase. Helpful reception staff but no getting away from the inefficiencies pervasive in India - took reception 5 tries to draft letter that we were staying at the hotel in order to get my local Sim card. But I am grateful they finally got there. Front desk manager Kuntal very helpfully arranged for transport when we had a last minute change and all other taxis called were apparently busy. Bhavana's service at breakfast was particularly noteworthy - always smiling and making sure we had plenty of masala tea.

Hotel in very good location to get easily to Bodakdev - a thriving commercial centre in Ahmedabad. But Starwood have missed a trick here - why put thick western carpets in a hotel in a town where the average temperature is 30C and above? Makes the rooms unnecessarily hot and full of carpet dust/smell.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family
