I've spend 10 nights in the new branded Aloft hotel, formerly "W Silicon Valley" .... Rooms are pretty much the same, but the nice couch and nice furniture were gone ... all the nice Bliss soap and shampoo gone as well.... Instead of the nice small bottles, you will find a dispenser in the shower .... When I was there, 3 things annoyed me:
- Lots of noise as the re-branding was still going on
- Random way of cleaning my room .... Sometime very well done, sometime not so good.
- Fitness room still not good, poor equipment.
NOW, SPECIAL AWARD TO .... the bar and reception staff! They are excellent, very kind, willing to help and accommodate you. They are friendly while still being professional ... Every evening the bar was a mandatory stop as the atmosphere was really great.
I will keep going there as the value price vs. service is still very good.
