I'm typically a Marriott guy but the Marriott properties in the area are a big let down.

The hotel is pretty new and stylish. It feels a little like a "Diet W" because of the funky decor. If you don't get there early enough you will probably have a hard town finding the roof of the parking deck.

The beds are a little too firm for me and I wish there was a chair (other than the desk chair). There is a bench but usually that is what I sit my suitcase on.

Great location though right next to downtown Homewood. Typically competitive rates too.

We were really looking forward to this stay and had specifically picked this quaint area of Birmingham for its safety and restaurants. When we arrived, we were informed our room was one of 3 leaking and they couldn't accommodate us and reimbursed us for our room and they paid for a room in downtown (where we didn't want to be!) at Sheraton. Though we got free lodging, we had looked forward to the Aloft hotel and area. We weren't suspicious until Sheraton staff told us that Aloft sends their people over to them all the time and that they always overbook. I'm assuming since we purchased on a bargain site, our room was one selected to be bumped. Curious as to whether anyone else had this problem?? I thought it odd that on our 17 day road trip, this hotel was the only one on priceline that didn't charge us upfront...I even called prior to our trip to confirm our reservation was okay since no charges had hit like all the other hotels. They said yes, they didn't normally charge at their hotel til check-in. That should have been a red flag for us. Anyway, from the lobby, it looked like a beautiful hotel for what it's worth, just buyer beware.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our hotel on TripAdvisor. We just completed a rooms and lobby renovation and just like any renovation, you never know what you are going to find behind a wall. We do not ever want to relocate a guest, but at times it is necessary. We attempt to find the best accommodations for our guests in this situation. We do hope that the rest of your trip was enjoyable.

Traveled from out-of-town and secured multiple rooms (~8 room) for guest. Hotel located within 3 miles of wedding venue (Donnelly House). Everyone enjoyed their stay and the accommodations. Hotel has a nice open lobby where people good gather/hang out before events. Bar area adjacent to lobby/common area which allowed for central gathering area after hours also including a pool table for entertainment. I would highly recommend.

A Loft is a reasonably priced modern minimalist hotel chain and although they all have a similar appearance not all of them are well run or in the best area of town! Homewood is a nice suburban area of Birmingham and has a nice youthful vibe! This hotel had a much better staff than one we stayed at a couple of weeks before and there is a great restaurant attached by a walk way (for another review) called Michael's. The room was the same as other aLofts but the hotel location and staff made this a better experience! For minimalist accommodations aLoft is a great deal! Recommended! Enjoy!

Room Tip: Rooms appear to be the same but if you don't like pet friendly then aLoft is not your place!

This is our second stay at an Aloft. Our first was NOLA. And for the second time we were thoroughly pleased. The front desk person was nice and helpful. Check in was quick. We had a small dog and there is a nice area of grass across the street. Great area of town. Very quiet with restaurants. Room was clean and well appointed. Common areas were nice as well. This will definitely be our new go-to hotel! Plan to stay at another in jersey next week!
