As "seasoned" travelers we have been all over the world and this hotel reminded us of a mid level European hotel. The room was tight with a king size bed, but every space in the room was utilized. The lobby did not have carpet but was open and included games and a pool table. What really set this hotel apart...

We stayed here on a Thursday night. Check-in was a breeze. The staff was very professional & courteous. The room was spotless & the bed comfortable. My only regret was that we weren't staying longer. When traveling through this area again next year; we will be staying here.

Perhaps my review should be better as the staff was great and the location suited me well; however, the style of the Aloft brand is likely not my style (open airy lofts that are loud as the noise carries). I also don't like the separate unit style AC units - but other than the things that likely can't be changed...

I spent a night at aloft Birmingham and wished I were staying longer. The location is perfect for the business traveler to walk to lunch or dinner. The place was immaculate and loaded with character. I happened to be there during college football season and joked with Alabama fans about their feuds with LSU, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. Then admitted...

I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst on business in Birmingham. The hotel is situated very centrally, just a few minutes' walk from the "high street" where there are plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. It does all that it sets out to do pretty well - the a/c works, the wifi is really fast and free, the...

I stayed at aloft Birmingham a few weeks ago for a wedding. Every person I encountered was friendly and helpful. The lobby was much more than a place to walk through to get to the elevator, it was a vibrant gathering place. Colorful, relaxing, comfortable and fun! There are games to play, great drinks and comfy couches. The rooms were...

Newer and hipper, the best improvement for me is that there's a shower instead of a tub/shower. Room was roomy for 2 adults and 2 kids. Steakhouse was just average but the service was great. Sheraton app had messed up our reservation but the desk staff went overboard to help. Only stayed a night but I'd stay again.

I stayed here 5 days while on a business trip and loved it. Very neat to come back to a hotel with upbeat music playing in a lounge full of guests having a few drinks and socializing. Although the pool is so small I would never stay here while traveling with family. See photos posted by iGrade.

I stayed once on business, I loved the modern look of the hotel, both common areas and the room. The lobby and bar area were laid back, lots of reading material, not a stuffy or high pressure environment at all. The place was walking distance to multiple great places to eat, coffee shops, etc. Staff was friendly and attentive. As...

my room faces a parking garage. I can hear the elevator loudly every time it moves. The cavernous lobby echoes so terribly that its like 20 people screaming outside my door. HORRIBLE. This is a weak attempt to provide something modern. I don't know who the architect was on this project, but they're a joke. The biggest waste of space...
