Reading the below review was like reading about my exact experience. We were in the city for a wedding and ended up here because affordable hotels were sold out in the city. We’ve stayed at Alofts in other cities and have had great experiences. Although last weekend was OK, we probably won’t be coming back to this location.
a. Clean bedroom/bathroom
b. Good amenities: coffee maker; Bliss shampoo/conditioner/body wash
c. Convenient location to subway
a. Bed frame: A design issue, or just our clumsy selves? I don’t know but my husband and I (on completely separate occasions) banged our shins on the end frame. It’s wider than the bed and sticks out so when you’re walking by (and you think where the bed ends), it’s easy to bump into it. I got a nasty cut and bruise.
b. Loud neighbors early in the morning: children were playing/screaming/running around; adults loudly speaking/walking up and down hall; doors opening and closing.
c. Light above our sink did not work.
d. Fire alarm: Though, we appreciate the safety and awareness, nowhere in the fire director’s announcement was there an apology for a late night awakening.
e. Scarce yellow cabs: We asked the front desk for a cab, and the answer for one was a black car. I was expecting a yellow cab but they pointed to the line of black cars waiting outside. A flat rate of $35 excluding tip!!!! If we weren’t in a rush to get to a wedding in the city and transporting crazy amounts of luggage, we would’ve gone down the street to hail our own.
f. No room service (sorry a sandwich café doesn’t quite cut it.)
Overall, the hotel provided what we needed - a place to stay. But I wouldn't brag about the experience.
