Prior to this weekend I had never heard of the ALoft brand by Sheraton / W. We only stumbled on it because we needed a hotel in Winchester VA that took pets. Normally I avoid hotels that take pets because they tend to be hotels that are past their prime. We were in a pinch though for dog care so we took a chance and I'm very, very glad we did.
This is an extraordinary hotel. Exceedingly well designed with European style lines and new approaches at every turn for taking care of guests. The room had a wonderfully modern bathroom with a gargantuan slider door that separates the shower and toilet from the sink area. Looking for the closet? The closet has been reinvented...words are hard to explain but the approach is brilliant for hotel use. Beds...great. Exercise room and pool looked fantastic. Mr. Clean would be proud. Exceedingly friendly staff that put up with way too much noise from dog...kids...etc.
A review though must be balanced. The couple we stayed with heard elevator music throughout the night. Also, the water pressure was a bit low (I expect this is out of environmental concerns). I should be okay with a green shower but I'd rather indulge on vacation.
All in all, a splendid experience.
Well done Starwood!
