“Great for business on a tight budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I found this hotel since I go to Miami on business often but my hotel allowance is low. the Aloft Brickell is great value since it is very comforatable and very centrally located. The staff is also extremely nice and helpful and the room is spacious and clean. The bar in the lobby does get pretty noisy but it is Miami! I certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to stay in the Brickell area.

Excellent stay at Aloft Brickell. From check-in to check-out, staff was friendly and helpful. One block from the Metro-mover, a FREE train that runs around downtown Miami about 60 feet above street level. Room was very nice and clean with a large glass shower and Bliss soap... The King-size bed was SOOOOOOO comfortable (I wanted to get the brand but forgot), we slept 'til 8:30 wich is unusual for us. Valet parking is $22 per 24 hours and you can come and go as often as you like. Valet guys are nice too and gave us directions to nearby beaches. The manager gave us coupons for a couple of drinks and suggested restaurants and things to do around the hotel. We would gladly return to the Aloft Brickell and recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay, close to downtown Miami without breaking the bank. The halls even smell good :)

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are nice.

Stayed at the aloft Miami last week. It is a retrofitted apartment building so the rooms are larger than other newly built aloft hotels I have stayed in. Also very nice that the rooms have balconies so you can enjoy the beautiful weather and sunsets in Miami. I had business downtown and also in the design district and the hotel was very convenient to both locations, as well as the Perez Art Museum. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely return.

As a platinum spg member I'm stunned by the poor communication of this hotel, the lack of upgrade, the abnormally small rooms, the lazy housekeeping, and the list goes on. Due to this stay I'm staying more with Marriott and don't expect to retain my platinum status.

Dear Andrew,

We are so sorry to hear your recent stay did not live up to expectations. We want to thank you for taking the time to share with us. Without more specifics it's difficult to address some of your comments, but we will do our best.

Upgrades are never guaranteed, but offered upon availability. If we have availability, we will always honor that platinum perk. The size of each room type is clearly listed on our website, our rooms go up to a sizable 514 sq-ft.

Again, we do apologize that your stay was not a pleasant one. Please feel free message us directly with additional details so we can find out why your stay was not fantastic.

Thank you,

Humberto Fermo

my friends and I were in miAmi for four days. rooms were clean, staff was helpful. the only thing that I did not like is that there was no complimentary breakfast. you had to pay a $10
fee. I found that to be down right stupid seeing all the money I was spending on the room and I couldn't get no cold eggs for free? anyway everything else
was cool. ask for James at the front desk. he helped us out a lot with recommendations on what to do and where
to go.

Dear Autumn R,

Thank you for your lovely review! We're so happy to hear you had a 'great stay' and found clean rooms and helpful staff. We have shared your comments with James, he was really grateful to hear that you took the time to write about your experience.

We appreciate your feedback on breakfast. We understand where you are coming from, and would like to explain why. All Alofts must adhere to a set of 'brand standards' (rules) so our guests can enjoy the same experience at each of our hotels. One of our standards is to offer guests the option to purchase breakfast rather than offering "free breakfast." We say "free breakfast" because the cost of these items is always billed to our guests via higher room rates. All Alofts have chosen Instead to offer our guests great rates, and the option to purchase breakfast if they choose.

Thanks again for taking the time to share and write. We hope to see you again soon!

Sincerely,

Humberto Fermo
General Manager, Aloft Miami Brickell

New hotel in the Miami Brickell area and was really nice, good rates with a sleek modern design and great staff. Really the staff was the best part. This will be my go to hotel in the area when I come for business.
