Great pet friendly hotel. Friendly, courteous service and clean rooms. We route our trip north to stay here. Conveniently located to many restaurants and anything you need. Hotel has a new, fresh look and rates are very competitive. GM is very nice and very accommodating. Check it out.

I stayed one night at this Aloft during early July while driving down from New York. I wanted someplace to stop overnight after having been on the road for 8 hours. It was the PERFECT choice to stay here.

I have been to many Aloft hotels over the years, and I'm pleased to say this one ranks among the best. The place was spotlessly clean, excellent modern furnishings, a really active and social crowd in the bar/lobby, and highly generous front desk assistance. (E.g. They even gave me a few extra soaps / lotions, since I love the "True Blue" by Bliss amenities.)

It's so hard to find a non-ugly or badly-designed hotel to stay in -- especially in somewhere as out-of-the-way as Winchester, VA. This Aloft is definitely worth a visit.

This was our first stay at an Aloft property, and it lived up to our expectations! We stay at a lot of Starwood properties and have been looking forward to checking out the Aloft brand. It has a funky vibe and feels a bit like a boutique hotel. The gals at check-in weren't too helpful on some questions we had but friendly nevertheless. The bartender was great and the lounge a great area to grab a drink in the evening. The location is a couple miles from the downtown Main St area, so do keep that in mind. However, we would stay here again!

This was our first stay in Aloft hotel. It was different experience in positive way. We have seen more than many hotels during past years. This was an totally un-usual kind of hotel with really smart design. From layout to funny colours, room was not a typical hotel room. Hotel was clean and silent. Staff were friendly and helpful. Fast and good self-laundry machines were also very useful. I can't wait to stay some other Aloft hotel.

This was a great place!! Spacious with simple lines, clean and very quiet. Had to go to front desk to get ice but that was no problem. Could not find many choices for eating out that were not fast food. Will seek out this hotel chain again.

Room Tip: I think any room would be fine...of course less traffic away from elevator.

Upon arrival at the hotel (a Saturday night), the parking lot was completely full due to some event and there was nowhere to park. There were a bunch of vehicles that had made their own parking spaces. My fiance went inside and spoke to a man about the situation and he said we could park down the street at the college. She questioned the individual and showed shock that as paying hotel guests we would have to park down the street at the college. Once he became aware she was upset, he offered to move his personal vehicle, but by the time he came outside I found a spot where someone was leaving. I do credit the individual for finally agreeing to give up their own spot, though it was after they could see my fiance was perturbed. As a Platinum guest who travels the world, I had never encountered such an absurd thing trying to park a vehicle. I was extremely upset that if gone unquestioned, we, as paying guests, would have had to park down the street. As it turns out, Saturday night is salsa night and open to the public. Changes need to be implemented to ensure this does not happen to any guest of the hotel whom is actually paying for a stay.

ROOM (516)

The room was fairly nice. There was a refrigerator, an in-room safe, iron and ironing board, plenty of outlets, a bed, TV, desk and chair, 2 night stands, a hair dryer, roomy shower, and the AC unit worked well.

GYM/POOL

The gym was closed for renovations. There was a small pool, but I did not enter.
