“Really cool place, noisy crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Really cool place. Nice building, cool lighting, attractive model type people checking you in. Rooms are modern and well maintained.

Only negative would be that it was almost too cool. Some of the guys in there were really painfully attractive and knew it. They were also pretty loud and probably drunk. But a solid hotel for the younger crowd... which I hope I'm just about clinging onto!

This hotel was simple, clean, modern and chic. It was quiet except for Friday night when there was about 30 mins of yelling outside, but that is to be expected. My husband and I are both 29 and we found this hotel to be geared towards the young traveler. It looks like what IKEA would make a hotel look like if they designed it top to bottom. Their pool area was nice, as was the bar and lounge. And although we did not eat breakfast there, they did have a nice breakfast area and snacks available for purchase all the time. Room was aesthetically pleasing and tasteful. They provide two bottles of water in your room every day, which was really nice in the mornings and for nighttime. Their own line of soaps and lotions were great. They are in large dispensers in the shower so there is as much as you need all the time. Mini fridge and cool Moonbeam alarm clock from LL bean, as well as hair dryer and complimentary magazines in the room were nice amenities. Room had a small desk with pencils and paper and there was a nice chaise lounge in the room as well. All in all, for $135, a great deal. We will be looking for more Aloft hotels when we visit other cities. Definitely for the modern, young traveler looking for a great deal, clean hotel and great atmosphere.

This was my first time staying at an Aloft, and I thought it was a great experience! I enjoyed the workout room, excellent accommodations for keeping your workout resolution!

The rooms are unique and I was a bit taken aback at first...but really liked the difference, very modern! I liked the fact the rooms were clean, comfortable and I could get a great night sleep every night. Location was great for my work travel and I felt safe parking my car and walking in at night.

The only drawback, is there is no room service. However, if you check at the front desk they will give you many options for take out to be delivered to the hotel.

You can also get a fresh breakfast bagel/English muffin or whatever, on your way out in the morning. Hit the spot for something light, but got me through the morning.

The manager was extremely kind and considerate and really knows how to treat guests!

I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially for work travel.

I like the lobby and the breakfast food.The dinner food and bar are not as good.I would have done better eating at In n Out across the street.The beds were not very comfortable nor were the pillows.The shower was great . I like the bliss things. I wish there was a jacuzzi. It was fine for this stay.

All the Aloft rooms are the same and are similar to a dorm room. I did not find the staff very professional as the other reviews suggest. Perhaps I expect more like a smile from the front desk clerk. The room rates are high for an Aloft hotel because you are paying for the airport location. The food in the lobby area is very expensive so I suggest eating at the In N'Out restaurant across the street.

Room Tip: Stay on the EAST side of the hotel The direct sun in the afternoon and evening makes the room VERY w...

Aloft is a terrific place to stay in Tempe. Easy access to ASU, Tempe and Scottsdale. Tempe Town Lake is right outside. The atmosphere is clean, clear and more toward hip.

Rooms are modern, very clean and efficient but comfortable. Colorful.

Excellent place.

Room Tip: There are no bad choices.

I traveled to Tempe for the Ironman, and the staff was eager to assist--restaurant and post-ironman tattoo parlor recommendations, car rental assistance, you name it. Jamie, the manager, was exceptional! I only had to worry about the race and had a luxurious spot to relax!

Room Tip: Close proximity to Starbucks, In/Out Burger, and ASU
