“Great hotel but parking is a hassle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2011

The hotel is new, rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff members are very friendly. The only drawback is parking - the number of spaces allocated for hotel guests in the adjacent deck is woefully inadequate. Valet parking is offered, but this seems unneccesary for what is essentially a suburban hotel in an office park. At night it is common to find all the designated spaces taken in a otherwise empty deck. The management should either get more spaces assigned for the hotel, or have the valets park their cars elsewhere, so that the designated spaces are for guests who are self parking.

Staff was SUPER friendly, the rooms were large and beds comfy. Loved the modern decor and Bliss bath products. Great location; we stayed here to tour Duke and UNC and it couldn't have been more convenient. Also drove to Wake Forest University, only 1.5 hours away. The front desk staff was young, helpful, always smiling, and all very nice to look at!

I looked on the internet through Aloft website where they offer a military discount. I thought I would just walk in and ask for the discount. The guy at the desk would not accept this discount because it was the weekend. I had asked what if I booked through the website before I had came. He said he would still not accept it. I was so mad! How money hungry can you be? what a way to support the troops!! After how I was treated I went to the Embassy Suites near the airport/Brier Creek area. What a beautiful place. Very clean, modern rooms. Guess what.....they give a military discount!! I will be mentioning my experience with everyone!

Our apologies that you were not able to secure a discounted rate. The hotel, its staff and management in no way would discriminate against our military troops- we are proud and thankful of the work that they do. During peak sell out periods at a hotel, discounted rates of any kind are not usually available as was the case for this individual. We recommend planning ahead when often there are value rates available.

This place has a fresh, modern, urban European minimal style and fee that is very appealing. From the multi-dataport station and wall mounted flat screen monitor in the room, to the polished decocrete lobby floors, and white-washed suspended cement ceilings, this is not your traditional, posh, southern lacy atmosphere and it is so refreshing! I echo the quality, attentiveness, responsive service and genuine hospitality of each staff I encountered. They were amazing! Couldn't be happier for this change of pace for visit with business on UNC campus.

The amenities at this hotel are wonderful and clean and nice, but the staff sets the bar for service. Everyone I came across was not only service oriented and caring, but still retained their individual personalities. It's nice to find great service that outpaces the price of the venue. Great Value, I'd definitely stay there again.

We had the great good fortune to stay at Aloft in Chapel Hill, NC. We were very stressed because my husband was having heart surgery at UNC Hospital. From the moment we entered the front lobby and were greated by Brad and Corey, our bloodpressure dropped many points. The decor throughout is gorgeous and fun; the place was spotlessly clean and the rooms are decorated in a very upbeat minimal style that is so relaxing. There is complimentary valet parking for your car and complimentary shuttle service to many areas, including the hospital, from 8AM-7PM. But the absolute most outstanding gem in the place is the staff. From front desk staff Corey, Brad, Andrew and Chase, to our shuttle drivers, Josh and Sam, we were comforted and looked after during our 4 day stay in a manner we've never experienced in our many years of travelling in America and abroad. They showed their concern about my husband and me in so many small ways that it was trully uplifting. Even the housekeepers and parking valets were smiling, polite, and engaging - just utterly amazing customer care from every area of the operation.

Room Tip: As patients at UNC Hospital, we received a special room rate.

I was in Chapel Hill for a four-day summer course at UNC. Aloft was very convenient and comfortable. The folks at the front desk could not have been more friendly. They really make you feel welcome and at home. Just a fun, relaxed atmosphere. The shuttle service is terrific and makes coming and going from the campus or Franklin Street super easy. There are places to eat within walking distance plus a Fresh Market and pharmacy. Super Shuttle from the airport was great as well. Will definately stay here again.
