Have stayed at an Aloft before an enjoyed it but will now rethink my choices. This hotel was just not that clean and too top it off one of two elevators was broken. It was over 100 degrees in the covered garage and I was traveling with 4 cases of really good wine, 2 computers and a dog. It took... More

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel back in late September 2015 and completely forgot to write a review. Based on my memory of the hotel and pictures that I took; this hotel is a bit different both interior and room wise. As this was my first stay in a Aloft property; I was surprised by the mixture of contemporary... More

We have stayed at Aloft Tucson several times due to its close proximity to the University of Arizona. This time, we stayed one night during college orientation. Our hotel room was clean and quiet with the usual Aloft amenities. The lobby was attended by friendly university students and was very casual. Our only complaint was that the lobby/lounge bar was...

This hotel was shockingly bad. As they were linked to W hotels I thought it would be nice. Could not have been more wrong. I invite you to compare the photos on the website to the ones I took of the grounds. It looked like a rooftop pool to me, as you can see, it was not. The mattress felt... More

This is an average hotel but has a great location to UA campus and you can't beat the price point. We have stayed here many times while visiting the UA campus. Unfortunately we have not always had the cleanliest rooms. Housekeeping seems to negligent the movable wall to the bathroom. I'm always tidying it up with cleaning wipes. This time... More

Easy check in and location. All the of usual hip style of the Aloft, including a comfortable bed and engaging lobby. Walkable to eating options and the freeway. Pet friendly, which is was really appreciated on this road trip with my four legged best friend!

I stayed at Aloft and was really disappointed in the room and customer service. The bathroom was filthy and remained filthy even after housekeeping came. The manager seemed pretty unconcerned about my experience. They did give me spg points but I won't be using those after my experience. I have never stayed in such a disgusting room.

1st - great location and reasonable prices, especially if you're visiting the UofA. Room and bed were both comfortable. 2nd - there's something on the roof - HVAC or something that runs most of the time. I would recommend avoiding a 7th floor room. As whatever motor was running changed pitch, the light fixture in the bathroom would rattle annoyingly.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you felt value in the location right across from the UofA. I am sorry to hear about the noise. We're on it! We will get this checked out. The 7th floor is one of our most asked for locations. More
