While the idea of Aloft is a good one, and the decor is funky and fun, I cannot express how much we regretted choosing this hotel for our wedding. Where to begin? Booking rooms... I had 3 family members be told they were getting "the last room available in the block"- and each time I called I was told that we had plenty of rooms left. One of my bridesmaids was charged twice for her room. My husband went to check in for our room on the day of our wedding (around noon) and was told he couldn't for two reasons 1. He wasn't me (just my husband, come on!) and 2. He couldn't check in early and was told "I don't know who told you you could check in early but that's not how we do things here." I called THREE times to make sure we and other family could check in early and was told as long as we called ahead there would be NO problem. Prices here were outrageous as well, we wanted to rent a conference room for a gift opening but they wanted $500 for us to use it for 1 hour. Sorry, we're bringing how much business to your hotel with this wedding and you want us to pay THAT much? We ended up just using the lobby because no one is hanging out there at 11am on a Saturday! I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I thought since we were the wedding couple maybe they'd have something in our room- a "Congrats" or "Welcome Newlyweds"- something simple... and of course, that's not required, but every other wedding I've been to, the hotel has done this. Overall- we were 100% unimpressed. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff was totally contradictory to each other and often rude- not a place you'd feel "at home."
