My husband and I just spent two weeks in Portugal and Spain courtesy of a Space Available military flight. BWI is where we had to go to get our flight and we were coming from Texas, so we needed to stay overnight near the airport. I booked a night at Aloft-Baltimore Washington International Airport because it was reasonably priced and located very close to where we needed to be early the next morning.
My husband and I had stayed at two other Alofts in North Carolina a few years ago, so we knew to expect a "hip" motif at the BWI location. We arrived at about 9:00pm on Friday, January 10th, and were checked in by a very laid back desk clerk. Our room had everything we needed. A comfortable bed with clean, crisp, white sheets awaited us, along with a flatscreen TV and a work station with plenty of outlets so we could charge up all our phones and tablets and such.
The bathroom was basic with a shower, but the toiletries were pretty nice. We only spent a few hours in the room because after the flights we endured to get to BWI, we really wanted a drink at the bar.
The bartender made me a great margarita with Patron tequila. The drink was fine, though I did think it was priced a bit high. I switched to beer afterwards. We also ordered food which took awhile to get to us and wasn't as hot as I would have liked it. On the other hand, it did taste good and we enjoyed the bar scene with it's light studded top and funky music. I appreciated that the music wasn't discernible in the hallways.
My husband and I got a good night's rest and were very grateful for the free airport shuttle, which got us to and from the airport with no issues. If I need to stay at BWI again, I will definitely consider another night at Aloft- Baltimore Washington International Airport.
