“Nice refresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

They renovated the old four points in to an Aloft. We got there and at first was worried it was a little too cool for us. Cinco de Mayo party going on in the outdoor pool area was quite loud. We dropped off our stuff and went to dinner. To our surprise when we got back it was all gone. The people and loud music. The rooms are nice, the lighting takes a while to figure out. Strange switch placement between the bathroom 'divider'. A sliding door to provide privacy from the shower and toilet. Also the thermostat was a more complicated than it needed to be. My home thermostat doesn't have that many options. Once we got past these little quirks our 4 day stay was nice and quiet. Excellent location right on the corner of the University. Bruegger's Bagels is on the same block as well as two ice cream shops. Underground parking was also nice instead of baking the car all day. We will definitely be back when in Tucson again.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent stay. As a green initiative we have by the front door one switch that will turn off/on all the lighting in the guest room. If you leave the switch in the ON position at the front door then you can control everything by its own switch. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Tucson so that we may provide you with the same exceptional service and relaxing stay. Thanks again and take care!

This Aloft just opened last month so everything is clean and new. The staff were nice and helpful and did a great job of juggling the crowd there for the Uof A graduation. The location is great with lots of places, including a Bruegger's Bagel right behind it. Enjoyed the pool and the work out room was busy but appeared to have room for them all. There is a seating area outside in the back of the hotel which was nice to be able to sit and talk quietly. My only complaint, which might be a plus to others, was a band on Friday evening in the lobby. The music was good just too loud to be able to talk. My sister's complaint was there was only 1 hook in the bath. Would stay here again but our Tuscon days are done.

Room Tip: Get above the 2nd floor if you do not want to hear and feel the band on Friday nights.

Great hotel, great location! We came for U of A graduation weekend, and really enjoyed the contemporary look of the hotel and the room. The WXYZ bar downstairs was cool and the bartenders were very nice. I would recommend staying at this hotel to anyone.

Stayed at the new Aloft for graduation. Great location within walking distance to University. Nice clean, big rooms. Very fun and welcoming atmosphere. Excellent food and beverage offerings in the lobby...loved the capuccino machine! Great outdoor patio to enjoy breakfast and beanbag toss. Very friendly staff...would definitely make a return trip to Aloft!!

Went down to Tucson and was able to get a room at the new Aloft. I was invited down by my son for Dads weekend at UofA and was excited to check the place out. The room was very large and state of the art and the walk in shower and bathroom were extremely large and thankfully the King bed was extremely comfortable. I was also impressed with the quality fitness facility and equipment. Bar area was busy and fun with parents and college kids and I will say the hotel staff was extreemely polite and kept the place immaculate. One thing, the Elevators moved a little slow, if you can speed them up that would be great. I have stayed in Tucson many times over the last few years while the kids have been in college,The Aloft is now my hotel for Tucson.

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor or above for a great view

rooms are hip, bathrooms very nice. there is no 'how to' guide in the room; I couldn't get the bathroom lites on, called front desk: 'this is a green room, all switches must be in on position'. not a pleasant prospect if you have to use the bathroom in the night, to turn on all the lights! when looking for a plug to charge my phone (by the way, all the switches must be on position just to activate the outlets), I discoved a switch I hadn't seen before. Lo and behold, it only controlled one light. searching the rest of the room, I found all the others; it seems just the 3 main switches by the door must remain in on position at all times for any lights/outlets to work. couldn't the front desk tell me that. other than that the lobby is small, and mostly a bar. hallways are kind of cheesy, but clean. i was able to walk back and forth to graduation, about a mile each way. fortunately it was only 80 degrees.

Room Tip: from previous read tips, I chose a room up and away from lobby. it was quiet despite the band playi...

Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. As a green initiative we have one switch by the front door that will turn off/on all the lighting in the guest room. That way when leaving the room you just have to flip one switch and all the lights go out. If you leave the switch in the ON position at the front door then you can control everything by its own switch. For example, if it is in the ON position and you want turn off all the lights except one you can do so. Each light has its own control. We apologize for the confusion and have shared this with our front desk to better inform guests prior to checking in. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us and hope to see you again for all your future stays in Tucson.
