“Aloft....pet friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have now stayed twice at the Aloft in Austin. We really love this hotel. The rooms although a little small are very comfortable. The bedding is really good. The bathroom is laid out well and the shower excellent. Parking is extremely easy. Best of all they are a totally pet friendly property! They love pets as guests. Also, directly next to the hotel is a great sports bar with really good food at a fair price.

Room Tip: If you skip maid service for a night on a multi-night stay they give you a coupon. We find that dai...

The room floorplan rocked. The room only had a shower, no bath tub or hot tub for soaking. The bar had a live jazz band that was wonderful. I wish I had ordered something from the lobby cafe, it looked good.

Awesome rooms. Extremely neat. Great shopping in walking distance. Good location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The catastrophic Bastrop fires had begun and people were displaced. Aloft accomodated the families that had lost their homes during this horrible time. I commend Aloft for their helpfulness. I highly recommend the facility and look forward to staying again.

Just returned from the Aloft at the Domain. Great hotel if you enjoy shopping. Many upscale retail stores are in walking distance. Most interesting sites in Austin are south of this location. The hotel is very "hip" with nice beds. Nice for an overnight stay.

This is the second aloft hotel I've stayed at. They call this a limited service hotel and there is usually not too many employees visible. One working the front desk and one bartender. There is no club lounge and I was told all the rooms are essentially the same (no suites). The aloft hotels look like they are all the same. The hotel design borrows from the W hotels.

Pros
Check in was fast and easy. There is a good small gym and pool available but I didn't use either.
The room was clean and the bed comfortable as in most Starwood hotels.

Cons
Not much to complain about. The one thing is that the elevators were extremely slow.

This is a very nice and well thought put Hotel, very nice locations and shops and restaurants galore. Very near the State Capital. The staff is very professional and very nice. It seems like they will do anything to make sure your stay a pleasurable one. I stay 120 + nights per year and were mostly at Holiday Inns but Holiday inns are slowly going downhill and this is a great chain to take over where Holiday Inns were 20 years ago.

Love it, finally a hotel in the US with a lot of design, very chick and very well thought out. The staff is friendly in a chic way without sounding phoney. I am bery happy I doscovered it. Great location near the The Domain.
