I really like the vibe of these more modern hotels that seem to cater to youngish' guests. We had never stayed at an Aloft but one just opened near where we live and so this struck my curiosity. In searching for a property near Boston we thought that trying out this brand would be a good idea.
Overall the place met our expectations. The hotel is very cool from the moment you enter and the rooms are furnished/designed in a modern/fun style. The beds were comfortable and everything seemed clean enough. It is not a luxury place but stylistically it does remind me of the W Hotels I have stayed in.
The only real complaint would be about the faucet in the bathroom. New hotels are certainly making more of an effort these days to be more green and that is really great. I can only guess that this effort to be more green (by saving water) is what the issue was with the sink faucet in our room. Basically the water came out in a similar fashion as it does at some airports/restaurants....in a delicate, spray/shower like way that made rinsing soap off difficult. The water saving aspects are lost when guests are forced to wait around to collect enough water for a really long time to wash the suds off their hands or to wet their face. The faucet issue is not a terrible thing everything considered but a bit annoying.
If you are in the area and want an affordable, comfortable place to stay this Aloft in Lexington fits the bill. It is a budget place but without many of the issues that budget hotels tend to have.
