Stayed here on a Saturday night. Room was nice, beds comfy, bathroom area a bit narrow and small,but very clean. Our room didn't have a microwave, but there are amazing paces to eat everywhere in the Domain. Perfect location to shop AL day, then relax at the pool or even play a game of pool in the lobby. Atmosphere is very chill, modern look and feel, snack bar downstairs comes in handy if you have children. There is a bar adjacent to the hotel if you're in need of a drink,dont even need to drive. There is also one in the lobby. Overall great stay, and I went two weeks in a row. The second Sat I stayed was $50 less though.... Ask about military or government rates if applicable to you.

First time in Austin...first time stay at Aloft. Neat clean and simple lines in rooms....I liked that. Bed very comfortable. Room very spacious. Bathrrom roomy. Room was clean. Very pet friendly. Rates are reasonable. Within walkkng distance of shops/restaurants at The Domain. What more can you ask for?

I saw on review said this place was loud. No more so than any other motel or hotel.

I'll stay here again!

Overall this hotel is very nice, there is not extra charge for a pet which is awesome! You also get free water and coffee!!! Pool is small but nice for a quick dip in the water, martinis at the bar are good! Location is great unless you want to go out downtown. I love this hotel

I think from what we could tell from the Aloft web site, that we were visiting a more upscale, chic, many amenities hotel....so we were disappointed. The rooms, hallways and elevators felt dark and prison like...the lobby was nice, but the food offered was not and coffee left out all day..yuck. We thought the pool was going to be a nice place to relax, but found it to only being 2 ft deep small rectangle...with no ambiance at all. The location was great...in walking distance of shops and restaurants. Room was dark and compact, no movies offered and no closet...just a cubby to hang your clothes with a curtain in front of it. The oversized shower was nice, but the sliding door to toilet and shower was very heavy to shut.

I want the hotel to know I was and still am impressed with the rooms and amenities. The Domain is such a nice area and I enjoyed it!
I found out it was the weekend of UT graduation so I figured it was going to be busy anyway. The hotel has a lounge below it, I may be a light sleeper, but the noise that comes when the bar shuts down (my room was across facing the parking garage) people peeling out in their cars and screaming outside. People walking down the hall drunk and loud. I understand everyone is celebrating but it was obnoxious, and I can't say I want to stay here on a weekend again. If you're planning on going to the restaurants and bars and having a good time and not a light sleeper, this is the hotel for you! If it was for military purposes near by and you sleep light, not the hotel for you.

I still liked the hotel and room in general, and there isn't any harm in celebrating, but it's hard to sleep through the noise when the party shuts down.

Thank you for taking the time in submitting this survey to Trip Advisor. We thank you for the kind words about the location, rooms, and amenities. Thank you. On the other hand we are so sorry about the excessive noise you experienced. We are working with the owner of the third party bar below our hotel and they will be making dramatic changes in the near future. We are sorry again you had to experience this.

Though a longtime Starwood member, this was my first time staying at an aloft and I was pleasantly surprised. This aloft location must be fairly new-- the facilities seemed fresh and recent and the location is an area of new development in Austin. Here's a summary of pros and cons:

Pros
-clean and new facilities
-a door to separate the shower area (unlike the sister hotel W, which often only has a glass wall, making it difficult to share a room with someone you're not dating)
-happy and friendly staff
-free internet
-easy to get an upgrade since the location is fairly remote
-quiet and restful night's sleep

Cons
-a bit of a drive from anything you'd want to see in Austin (our average trips into the city were 15 min long and about $20)
-not much to eat or do nearby other than shop at the luxury mall
