We have used this hotel twice in the last two years to park and fly out of BWI. We consider this to be a solid choice in the area for this service.
The staff has been helpful, and friendly enough. There's a modern lobby, with a lounge. There is a quick service (grab and go) area, but no full service restaurant. While a downside, it is very close to several dining options near by.
We have found the room to be a highlight of this property. As the name suggests, it's much like a loft. Modern, clean, comfortable. An open design with a nice flatscreen TV mounted on the wall. We have found the rooms to be more than adequate.
The hotel is about a 5 minute drive by shuttle. The shuttle was attentive, but we found that the hotel (at least the times when we were there) shared its early morning shuttle service with the hotel next door. We waited at that hotel for several minutes as well, which made it more of a 15-20 minute drive to the airport between waiting at Aloft and the adjacent hotel. Keep this in mind to give yourself adequate time to get to the airport.
Upon our return, we called the hotel and the shuttle arrived pretty quickly each time. We just jumped into the car and left.
All in all, we recommend Aloft for a park and fly option. What my wife and I tend to do is compare parking/room rates between this hotel and Four Points BWI and we will go with whomever is cheaper (frankly). If the cost is the same, we tend to select Four Points given its closer proximity to the airport, shuttle attentiveness and on-property restaurant (see our reviews of the Four Points and its restaurant Michener's for more information). However, we would use Aloft again without hesitation.
