Upon arriving at Aloft we used the self service check in computers which shows you the room you are assisnged but also allows you to choose another room if you would like, however at this location there isn't much of a view from anywhere, but that feature is still neat. The guy who was working the front counter was very helpful with check in (even though we were using self check in) as well as with answering questions about the establishment.
Like another person stated in the review, I was expecting something different in regards to the bar and canteen areas. I was thinking they would be in another area (maybe even floor) of the hotel, but they are all a part of the lobby when you enter the hotel. Nonetheless, the area is still very spacious, nice and of course contemporary. There is a nice outdoor courtyard, indoor pool and small business center. There's a large variety of snacks to select from in the snack bar - with a price of course. :)The hotel offers free wi-fi which is a plus. The elevators have this cool little display that moves/changes when you move your feet adding to the funkiness of the hotel. :)
The King room that we had was very spacious. The sink area is somewhat small. There is a mini-fridge under the sink. None of the rooms in any Aloft (according to the rep at the desk) has tubs. It's showers only. The arrangement of the room and the plasma TV are very nice! In the room there is a frosted glass that is actually the same frosted glass of the shower - so you can somewhat see the person who is in the shower, not 100%, but you can still see. I'm not sure if this is the case in Queen rooms (people traveling with kids, etc).
The hotel is only about 10 minutes from downtown and is within walking distance of the outlet mall and several fast food restaurants.
