We came for a fun night out of the house with our kids, ages 6 and 9.
The entire hotel is new and clean, with loft-inspired modern furnishings and decor. This doesn't sound like a big deal, but it makes the hotel feel significantly different from similar-level hotels, and from our point of view improves the experience.
Service was friendly and excellent, including a hearty welcome at checkin with goodie bags for the kids and late checkout was approved with a smile when I requested.
The room was large with high ceilings, with comfortable, cozy beds, big-screen LCD TV, nice big shower, lots of natural light, and pleasant, modern decor. My wife would have liked a bathtub, but it wasn't a big deal.
Location is convenient to Boston, just off 128/95.
Pool was very nice, good medium temperature in a warm pool room. Workout room was good, with a variety of cardio machines, one multi-purpose cable resistance machine, and freeweights. Lobby/Lounge/Bar area was comfy and roomy, with lots of different places to sit, eat, lounge, etc. It was the kind of place you felt like spending time in, and we did, with pool table (free), boardgames, coffee table books, and a (gas) fireplace. As in the rooms, decor was funky and cool, but still comfortable and accessible. The little shop had basic toiletries etc, and a nice selection of simple food: coffee and fresh-baked pastries, simple sandwiches, but also cereal, juice (plain and high-end) and egg sandwiches in the AM. Like a high-end convenience store, not just junk food.
Free WiFi throughout the building worked easily with a room-number login.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and my son asked if we could try to find an Aloft wherever we go to stay in a hotel. I agreed.
