“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We could not believe the price for this great location. We booked through hotels.com because we needed a hotel in the Bolingbrook, Illinois area. It was beautifully appointed in contemporary decor and colors, the room was laid out so nicely - huge fluffy comforter, lots of feather pillows, a very large flat screen TV mounted on the wall vs taking up desktop space and the shower room was encased in glass, very pretty. Everything flowed so well. Their pool area, so fun. Immediately outside their indoor pool is an outdoor sitting area complete with couches, fireplace, sun chairs, the works. There is an onsite bar and mini-cafeteria to pick up light snacks and breakfast items. They also allow for pets, which we didn't bring on this trip but we occasionally do so that was good to hear as well. We only live about 1/2 hour away but I'd book this hotel for a staycation anyday and most likely, we will!

Room Tip: This was our first stay so we have nothing to compare the rooms to at the location, but the room we...

We stayed at Aloft Bolingbrook for one night over Memorial weekend. We were attending a nearby wedding and the hotel offered transportation. The hotel has a shuttle bus that is prearranged with the bride and groom. Please be aware that the shuttle we used held a maximum of 12 people and was only making 3 trips back to the hotel at 11:00pm, 11:45pm and 12:30am. The last trip was reserved for the wedding party. If you have more than 24 guests needing rides it could be an issue. Talk to your planner at the hotel.
We liked the location of Aloft. Close to 355, shopping and restaurants. The hotel has a very contemporary vibe. The lobby area has a small check in desk to the left along with a self serve breakast station. Prices are located overhead. Fruits, cereals, breakfast sandwiches, muffins, make your own waffles. Straight ahead from the entrance is a large seating area and to the right of the seating area is a good size bar. I think the bar was open until 1:00 or 2:00am. To your immediate right is a pool table. The swimming pool is enclosed and visable from the lobby. All public areas were clean and the staff was friendly.
We had a king room. We heard no outside noise from the hall or other rooms. Loved the Bliss products. Shampoo & body wash are in a dispenser in the shower. Shower and toliet can be closed off from the sink. Plenty of counter space. There is not a lot of storage space for clothes. We were only there for one night so it wasn't an issue. In the bedroom there is a desk and a long sitting bench. 2 free bottles of water, coffee maker, blow dryer, iron, ironing board were in the room. Bedding and pillows were very comfortable. The walls in our room showed some wear. But the room was very clean and comfortable. Nothing needed attention.
We were very happy with our stay and would recommend this hotel.

Did not know what to expect because I have never heard of this hotel, but was really surprised. The rooms were very trendy and updated same goes for the bar/lounge and also had a pool table and the drinks were not outrageous like most bar lounges are, the pool was very clean and had a trendy outdoor firepit, great stay.

So this is an interesting place. First time I've stayed at an Aloft hotel. Think minimalist, modern, etc. Kind of like living in an Ikea store. Staff was friendly. Didn't really hang in the lobby which was more like a club. Room had a nice flat screen TV, phone, bed, shower - and that's about it. Don't expect anything more than that. Your bed is close to the hall so if you stay on a busy night, expect to deal with some hallway noise. Would be fine for a quick stay where all you need is a bed and shower. Don't expect an iPod/iPhone dock or anything more than the basics. As long as your expectations are right, you should be satisfied. Thought the location was great and especially enjoyed a visit to the luxury movie theatre nearby in the Promenade.

Room Tip: 3rd floor away from elevators.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to share your experience on TripAdvisor! Like you, I also thing our hotel is interesting and minimalistic. We like to think the design of the hotel is to provide guests with a clean comfortable room, but also provide them with a place to congregate in the lobby. Reviews like yours are great for our guests so they can come to the hotel with the right expectations! While we do not have a typical iPod dock/alarm clock, all of our rooms have a “jack pack”. The jack pack allows our guests to hook up their iPod/iPhone, DVD player, gaming system, HDMI compatible device directly to the television. It’s a unique amenity we provide to our guests. I’m also happy to hear you enjoyed the location. iPic Theaters is an amazing place to catch a movie, and we always have special packages on our website that include a gift card to their facility. Thanks again for your review!

My husband and I were planning a wedding from AZ and we picked aloft to be our choice of hotel! What a fantastic choice! The customer service, the lounge, the bar and atmosphere was better than I could have imagined! I had a lot of out of towners come to our wedding and aloft provided everything! Working with Meagan and coordinating shuttle services went so smoothly! I would recommend this hotel to anyone! The bar at night turned out to be such a hot spot!! To the reasonable drinks to the music choices! Everything was perfect, high standards and simply exceptional!!!

My kids and I stayed here for our spring break to visit family. It's in a great location, across from the Bolingbrook Promenade of shops and restaurants (and a grocery), and 2 minutes from the highway. The hotel is full of modern decor and big open spaces. It doesn't have the free breakfasts like some hotels are doing, but you can still get your morning waffle, egg sandwich, bagel/donut or fruit for a reasonable price. The rooms are pretty large, with an added bonus (not mentioned when booking) of an in-room fridge. The main drawback for me was that the bathroom/vanity area was on one light switch, and we usually keep the bathroom light on at night in case the kids need to find their way. Unfortunately this was too bright for me to sleep well. After the first night, we chanced it and slept in the dark. The walls did seem a little thin sometimes (like hearing someone occassionally flush), but I turned the a/c fan to ON so it ran all night, providing that noise my kids sleep well to, and drowning out any small noises I'd otherwise hear from neighborhing aloft'ers. I love that the hotel uses Bliss products such as body lotion and in-shower dispensers of body wash and shampoo/conditioner. The shower was AWESOME, very large and great water pressure. We are definitely going to stay here again when we return!

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking time to share your experience on TripAdvisor! I am very happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed the hotel over Spring Break! I am sorry to hear about the situation you came across with the bathroom light! I actually sleep with a light on myself in hotels so I understand how that can impact your sleep since all of the bathroom lights are controlled by one switch. On the other hand, I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the Bliss Spa products in the bathroom as well as the shower! We thank you again for staying with us and hope to see you next Spring Break!

Stayed here one night on our way out of the city so we could hit Ikea early the next morning. When first pulling up to the property, it sticks out like a sore thumb. The lobby is very large with a sizable pantry area and a sizable lounge with pool table and lots of seating. We were checking in on a Sunday evening, so there was not a lot going on at that time. The young lady working the front desk was very helpful in changing our reservation at the last minute.

We had 5 in our party, 2 adults & 3 kids in 2 rooms, an king with an adjoined double-king. The rooms were fairly spacious. The layout was not traditional in that the beds were up against an interior wall opposite the bathroom, instead of a wall opposite another room. The bathroom sink was partitioned toilet and shower, which is handy. The TV's were large and wall mounted flat screens with a good channel selection. The beds were large and comfortable, with clean and comfortable bedding. In fact, the entire room was very. The decor was modern and minimalistic and functional for a family outing, but could see how it could be cumbersome if it were a business trip.

The indoor pool was small and shallow which was great for kids. The exercise room next door appeared to be very well equipped, but didn't have an opportunity to use it.

All in all, it was a fun experience for a hotel.

Thank you very much for taking time to share your experience on TripAdvisor! We are very excited to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay! I am happy to see you felt the design of the rooms were functional and comfortable. Splash, our pool is a great place for the family to hang out for a bit, and as you said, it is more for “splashing” than swimming laps! Thank you again for sharing your thoughts about the hotel. Hopefully next time you are in the area, we can welcome you back as our guest!
