“Stay somewhere else”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

If you are in your 20's, early 30's this might work. But not ideal for business travelers. No healthy menu choices and the rooms are so cold and definitely feel like inner city lofts. Not warm and inviting at all.

Limited breakfast choices and ton of cereal options (yuck)

The front desk folks were very nice and showed enthusiasm for their brand. But I was not impressed.

I received a note from the manager who was unapologetic and threw his staff under the bus for not informing me of my food choices. I'm sorry but this is tacky.

I would not recommend this place at all the marriott is up the street and full service

Place seems brand new and has a loft-like lobby with high ceilings, exposed ducts, and an active bar opposite the check-in. We had an excellent view from our room of the riverfront and the "Flats" - truly a classic Cleveland portrait. Although the room was a little small, the bed was one of the most comfortable we've slept in. Staff was friendly and helpful. Because it was so cold when we stayed there, we chose to drive to the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame instead of walking, which is about a mile away. Future development underway in the immediate neighborhood should make this a destination hotel for Cleveland.

Thank you for you review and kind words of our property. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to another opportunity to serve you. We love our location and I agree as the development continues that the Flats will be the destination that it once was in Cleveland. Thanks again for your comments.

New place with great atmosphere. Very modern with an industrial feel. Good rooms and a great view of the West Bank of the flats. Access to three restaurants/bars make this place a good vacation spot. I would definitely recommend this place.

This was my first time staying at an Aloft hotel, and I loved the huge windows, natural light and decor of the lobby/bar area.I agree with other reviwers that the entrance is weird and even confusing. They're currently remodeling and are re-naming some of the building floors, which makes for an annoying few minutes the first time you try to exit the lobby (reception didn't tell me this, rather another hotel guest). The rooms were small but well designed. Temperature control was a bit of an issue for me - I was either hot or cold with the heat/AC turning on constantly to keep my room at 70 F. This hotel is definitely focused on male business travelers - they only offer 2-in-1 shampoo and don't have conditioner available. Don't waste your money on the breakfast-included rate - they just give you a voucher for the a la carte breakfast they serve near Reception, and you definitely don't need $20 worth of food/drink. I think Reception could be more helpful. They didn't give me my breakfast vouchers or explain how to use them, nor did they mention the remodeling and floor number confusion. They also advised the train below the riverside rooms ran until 11pm, but it was more like 1am.

Room Tip: Don't choose riverside unless you're a deep sleeper - they say the trains stop at 11pm, but...

This hotel is weird. That's the best word I can come up with. You enter the hotel through the parking garage and go up an elevator to find the lobby. Room was tiny. One girl at the front desk wasn't very nice at all!! But I didn't catch her name. This aloft just isn't for me. I Wouldn't stay here again.

The Aloft Hotel is a uniquely upscale hotel. The room was ultra modern albeit a bit on the small side. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the location. It was advertised as being in the heart of the entertainment area but to be honest to get to the restaurant district you have to walk up a fairly steep hill and in the middle of winter that was no fun. Outside of that the hotel was clean and well run.

Thank you for your review of our property and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I agree that the winter weather has made things difficult accessing attractions near the hotel. We anxiously await the spring weather and also are looking forward to the Phase 2 development project which will bring the entertainment to our front door. Again, thank you for the comments and we look forward to another opportunity to serve you.

My wife and I stayed here for night out on the town. We had a great time. This hotel has a sleek, cool feel without feeling overbearing or pretentious. The staff was very nice, and the room was clean and comfortable. The view of The Flats and Lake Erie had an undeniably Cleveland feel. I travel often for work, and rarely find myself looking out the window as much as I did here. The entertainment and dining options were limitless with several restaurants in the building and the Warehouse District just around the corner. This hotel manages to be fun, unique, AND affordable. Well Done!
