“Jewel in Downtown Orlando”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

The space in the rooms are unbelievable. Everything is neat, clean and updated. Very modern with classy finishes throughout the whole hotel. Only stayed for one night, wish it could have been more. Great location for a night out in the town as well. Free wifi. What a hotel!!!

We came to Orlando for the NCAA Men's basketball tournament at the Amway Center. Hotel conveniently located a short walk away from Amway Center and Church St and lots of restaurants and clubs. Rooms were clean, comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. Bed was the most comfortable I've slept in on the road and I spent 33 yrs as an airline pilot living in hotels. The front desk staff (especially Mirian Jiminez (Mgr), Maria and Julianna) were professional, friendly and accommodating. I will definitely stay here when I return to downtown Orlando.

Stayed for two nights quite by chance after flying into Orlando instead of Miami.
Friendly, helpful staff from manager to valet, great sized, well appointed rooms in arts and business district with a selection of great restaurants and pubs within a safe five minutes walking distance (including a Starbucks).
The pool was off main road at front but elevated and separate enough to enjoy privacy and a full day's uninterrupted sunbathing/bathing in this urban chic setting.
A million miles away from the tacky tourist Mecca that is resorts Orlando along International Drive. No children and no bus load of Brits abroad seeking a burger after a day's sun burning at Wet n Wild.
Good on-the-go food option as well as a relaxed modern cocktail bar with pool table and great decor/soft furnishings.
Midday check out, free wifi and complimentary still bottled water were plus points too.
If I have to criticise anything then it would be that no bath robes were supplied in room.
That being the worst I can say means I'll definitely return. The price and value for money is spot on at this new and still quite hidden gem ten miles from Florida's Walt Disney jewel.

Had an amazing stay last weekend. Great atmosphere in the bar with extremely good service. GM is definitely running a good operation and developing a great team. Would definitely stay again! The hotel is located perfectly in Orlando and close to Hwy exits. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Stayed at the Aloft while attending recent NCAA tournament at AMWAY Center. Great location for sports events and nighttime entertainment. The room was neatly furnished and immaculately clean. The bar was active on the weekends. The pool area was clean. I would stay here again if I was in Orlando for bar/sports events.

Very convenient for the Amway Center which was within walking distance with lots of choice of restaurants near to the Center. The Hotel & valet staff were very friendly & courteous. The room was surprisingly large for a standard king & was very comfortable room, We would happily stay again.

Great new hotel in downtown and great reuse of an old office building. Decor is modern and minimalist. Room was very big and beds very comfortable. We were there for a concert and location is within walking distance of the Amway Center. The new performing arts center is being built directly across the street. Bar area was great and had a good vibe of young and not so young. Highly recommend this hotel if you want to stay in the heart of downtown.
