While the Aloft is not your typical full-service hotel (no restaurant/room service, minimal staff), the Aloft Austin was a great stay within this class of hotels. Check-in was smooth, room was very functional and modern with a comfy bed, staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is not downtown, but within walking distance of the nice outdoor shopping mall with great food options. The Aloft grab and go cafe also perfectly met our snacking and breakfast needs. Overall a perfect stay.
