“Super cool vibe”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We live 2 blocks from this hotel, & wanted to check it out. So we celebrated our anniversary with a "stay cation" & had a great time. Clean, minimalist room with a cool shower. Super comfortable bed. Lots of windows with great views. Huge, sleek lobby with cool bar & lots of lounge seating areas. Friendly staff. Totally affordable! Highly recommend.

I travel quite a bit for business and this was my first time trying Aloft. I understand that it is newly opened here and while it's on the fringe of development int this part of town, I felt safe in the area. The rooms were sparsely decorated (I like that), super clean and had refrigerators (very good indeed). The shower was great!
The staff were very accommodating and helpful. I thought the open area food store was a great idea and the free coffee was an added bonus! The whole lobby has a tech-savvy sense with wifi and uber-cool seating areas.
My one complaint would be the volume of the music --- way too loud! I escaped to the outdoor patio for relief and to check out the exceptional view of this working town with trains and tugs and boats in the mix. The volume followed me outdoors too! It's a minor issue that can easily be addressed.
I'll be back.

Room Tip: The windows prevent a lot of noise-creep from the outdoors. A very hushed atmosphere in the hallway...

I'm a Platinum Starwood guy, so I travel a lot and stay at many properties, including the Aloft's big brother, W Hotels. Overall, I prefer the Alofts.

They are smart, clean, modern and fairly-priced. This location is no exception.

Located on the river near Lake Erie and close to to downtown in the East Flats area, they are ahead of the curve of the redevelopment of this area. It's kind of industrial, with freighters and barges steaming by but it's cool at the same time. It's easy to drive to, parking is no problem and you can walk to a dozen bars and restuarants.

The rooms are all the same- sparse but functional with great bathrooms. A nice touch is the help yourself kitchen in the lobby.

If you're tired of the too hip and overpriced W or the dated and boring Westins or Sheratons, give the Aloft a try.

Room Tip: Get a room on the river side to watch the drawbridge and boats go by.

Aloft has a youthful, upbeat and techie feel. The rooms were brand new, shining clean and although sparse (in an intention and modern decor sense) had everything that was needed for a comfortable and efficient stay. The price was very reasonable and restaurants are nearby. I highly recommend.

We stayed at the Aloft for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. There are a few kinks that staff is still trying to work out, but everyone was nice from the valet guys, front desk, to housekeeping. Rooms are small, no dressers, but very comfortable. The refrigerator is an added bonus. We were first shocked to see all the train rails outside our window, but the noise was not bothersome at all. A view of the water is always nice. Walked to downtown restaurants, casino, and Progressive Field. Will stay here again next time in Cleveland.

This hotel is almost brand new. It is very modern. It is in a weird location and was difficult to find, in fact, OnStar did not have the address so we had to use GPS on the phone. We got there and there are no signs letting you know that this is a Hotel. We almost stopped to ask directions. It is located right next to an Amtrack stop and near the river. You can hear the barges pass by. I slept soundly but my husband said it was loud outside. We had a corner room. Not much of a view. We had an accessible room so the bathroom was spacious. They allow pets, which is the reason I picked this hotel. The layout is a little confusing, with parking on the ground floor but you have to take an elevater to the check-in floor, and a different elevator to the rooms. This adds to security but not to convenience. Staff was kind and friendly. Room was very clean and bed was soft.

Hotel: The property was opened quite recently and is in the downtown Cleveland with valet parking. Aloft, is one of the SPG budget brands and is contemporary in style, not many might like the style but the color scheme, decor is really youthful. It is on the W10th street, close to lot of bars, restaurants, rock and roll hall of fame & museum. The property has a bar (W xyz), lot of people on a Friday night, many sat on the terrace over looking the river, bridge, etc. Right next to the reception, something caught my attention - " Re Fuel" - you can grab a sandwich, drinks, and you can make your own espresso, latte, cappuccino from the WMF machine (The German made - WMF espresso machine is one of the finest available in the market). Note: Opposite to the hotel, you also have railway tracks!!

Staff: The valet parking is great, staff are very friendly. The front desk welcomed the guests pretty well, recognize your elite status, thanked for being elite, offer you the standard amenities, etc.The staff at the bar are friendly as well.

Rooms: The rooms are contemporary in style, bright colors, comfy bed, stand in shower, writing desk, large tv fixed to the wall and enough space to arrange your stuff. There were two writing desks in the room, but one had a chair and not the other, little bit weird but not a big deal. We had a room over looking the river, railway tracks, not a busy line but you can hear the noise and once we felt little bit shaky.

Over all, I liked the property, it is modern, clean, staff are friendly and is in the downtown.
