Hmm, the Aloft was a mixed experience. I'm a pretty easy traveler when I go alone. I have few needs and am just doing my own thing. The hotel is good for that, and would be good for a few friends traveling together. I feel for the family - that would have been a problem. But to get a newer, funky hotel in Birmingham, with free internet and a comfortable bed, it's a pretty good place.
The fact that you have to go to the door to turn off the lights is ridiculous. I called down and asked about it - they said it was a "design flaw" and was being worked on. Hey Einstein - it's called a table lamp, sometimes referred to as a clip-on reading lamp.
Also the air conditioning unit was incredibly loud. I can sleep through most anything, and it woke up up consistently all night when it would cycle on.
For all this you'd think I would say stay away. But not really. It's clean, convenient, friendly, and a good price. I would go back, but maybe think about putting in my earplugs this time.More
