Just completed a great stay at the Aloft Ballantyne. The staff certainly live up to their "Highest Rated Aloft in the nation" rating. Location is great for a business traveler because of the large selection of dining options in the area. This location is much quieter than the Aloft downtown which is nice.
Heading NW on 485 can lead to some traffic in the morning. Other than that, I would return here again.
