“Comfortable, Attractive Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Aloft is located across the parking lot from Element in Lexington. While both hotels are well-appointed and modern, Aloft has a very different atmosphere. As soon you enter the spacious lobby you are surrounded by modern functional design. The well-appointed seating areas provide a comfortable place to work or relax and they flow naturally into the bar area which is open evenings. The bar serves upscale pub food, which is adequate for a casual meal. Aloft boasts a salt water swimming pool which is very relaxing, so don't miss it. The rooms are pretty basic with a comfortable bed, bench under the television and desk with desk chair. As far as I was concerned, there was only one flaw; there wasn't any comfortable place to sit to watch TV. You either have to sit on the hard desk chair or on the bed. Neither is very comfortable for long periods, especially if you have a back problem. The bathroom was perfectly adequate, with a nice shower. The rooms are definitely not intended for extended stays, so I would suggest staying at Element if you are planning to stay more than a couple of days.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper floor away from the elevator & facing away from the parking lot.

I used cash and points (2,800 SPG points + $45) for a one night stay at this property. I arrived at the hotel at around 10 pm after a long 13-hour work day, so I was happy that check in was quick and painless. When I entered the lobby, or I should say “living room”, I definitely saw major components of the W in the decor and atmosphere, as it was very modern, trendy, hip, and inviting with its open floor plan.

I was given a king room on the first floor that was pretty basic, but clean, quiet, and comfortable, featuring a large flat-screen TV, a work desk, and a spacious bathroom. Just like the W brands, the bathroom was stocked with Bliss products, but the shampoo and bodywash were in fixed dispensers within the shower. I understand that they do that as a way to be “green”, but honestly it made me feel like I was showering at a community facitity, such as a gym, instead of at a hotel. Other than that, there really were not any issues with my stay, and I was able to get a good night’s sleep.

I used Aloft for my wedding guests and for myself -- their customer service was superb and the accommodations were clean and beautiful. We even had them keep the hotel bar open late for an after-party with our guests. Setting up a room block was easy, and they dealt with all of our last-minute requests, from canceling rooms to adding more guests. The location is ideal for anyone wanting to spend time in Concord or Lexington, and its so close to the airport. We stayed at element, while our guests stayed at Aloft, and everything was quiet and surprisingly luxurious. Highly recommended!

Just returned after four days from a family event in Concord, MA. Returned to the Aloft Hotel in Lexington conveniently located just off the I95 freeway. The location gives you easy access to Concord, Waltham, Burlington and Boston. If you're an American Revolutionary war buff, this is the place to be. Minuteman Park is just down the road and there are many other historical sites within 15-20 minutes drive time. The hotel is clean and modern and the staff very friendly and efficient. The rooms are very comfortable, the A/C works great, the pillows soft and fluffy and the amenities more than adequate. The 2 bottles of free bottled water is a nice touch. I used mine to make my morning coffee. I paid $ 133.00 per night, which I thought was very inexpensive. Although there is no restaurant on the premises, the bar, located in the lobby has some offerings or you can have a wide variety of foods delivered to the hotel. There is also a snack shop or sorts. I highly recommend Alofts for a wide variety of travelers.

Really nice weekend stay at this Aloft. The room was quiet (as requested) with modern furnishings and a comfortable setting. The location isn't very convenient for the city - it's about a 25-30 minute drive in with weekend traffic, but it was fine if you're expecting it.

Good choice if you're trading off a really nice room for a little longer of a commute into the city. Coincidentally there were a ton of great looking restaurants only 10-15 minutes away in Lexington if you're not set on eating in downtown Boston.

Stayed at Aloft for the first time last weekend. Choose the hotel based in other reviews on Trip Advisor and price. Planned to go on a whale watch in Boston and found I could save over $100 per night staying twenty minutes away in Lexington. Room was comfortable but I found the bed a bit hard. Very modern looking with free wi-fi service. Did not use any of the ammenties. Parking was free and fairly close to the hotel entrance.

My gf & I stayed there this past weekend. The staff was friendly. We showed up right before midnight and got the room on the 1st floor right by the door to the lobby. We loved everything in the place with the exception of 2 things....water pressure in the sink & the sound proofing for being near the door of the lobby...we can hear the foot traffic after the bar closes at 12am....

Room Tip: arrive earlier to get a good room & parking...avoid the rooms by the door to the lobby unless yo...
