“Nice, but won't stay again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I (both of us in our 30's) booked a night at the Aloft, but we should have stayed at the Omni. Our sole purpose was to go to the Dallas Convention Center and the Aloft was about a ten minute walk (two blocks south of the hotel) vs. using the Omni's indoor sky bridge which was connected to the convention center. One of the reviews on Trip Advisor said it was across the street. Not really. Parking at the convention center is also a beating. Another reason to stay at the Omni. The Aloft was nice, but didn't have a hotel feel. No room service, a tiny bar, small hotel lobby...It was a lot like a LaQuinta or Holiday Inn. Parking was across the street from the hotel and cost $10. I think what made the Aloft a frustrating stay was that we could have stayed at the Omni for the same price. The Omni is a far superior hotel and they're really charging the same price per night??? Instead of $169, I probably would have been happy to pay maybe $99 or $120 at the most.

The style of the hotel was really neat and unique. It had a warehouse/loft feel with exposed brick and air ducts. The room was spacious and we had a great view (831). We asked for a corner king room and were happy with what we got. I'll stay at an Aloft hotel again, but maybe in another town. I'll probably always chose the Omni if staying downtown Dallas.

Really nice hotel with special atmosphere. Old industry building nicely renovated but keeping the old style. Stayed in a King room with lots of space. Nice and friendly personnel and a laid-back atmosphere. Walking distance to good restaurants on Main. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

If you like the feel of the Aloft hotels, then you will love this one too. The atmosphere was great and the staff were very helpful, prompt, and courteous. I really love the design of this Aloft. I stayed for just one night for business but this would be a great place to stay for some night life too.

My husband and I like to stay in Dallas a lot visiting our kids. We decided on the Aloft, because of location and wanted something different. We can not say enough good things about the staff. It is trendy, modern and fun!! They gave us a room with a beautiful view of the city and the bar was fun with great service. We will definitely be returning here.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room as they are a little larger

Modern midmarket hotel in Dallas downtown. There is not really anything around the hotel, but that is simply because that is the way that Dallas downtown is.
The guest rooms have got the amenities that are excpected in a hotel of this type (in-room safe, coffee making facilities, free Internet, large flat TV etc). However, I did not find the bed that comfortable (especially not the pillows) and it is surprising that an international Starwood hotel not has got European adaptors to lend to its guest. They only sell them, but were out of stock during my visit.

The staff was friendly and professional and the amenities were prefect. The rooms were large and spacious and we had a nice view of all the buildings downtown. Its close enough to experience the nightlife in Deep Elm. The hotel bar is great, but be aware of some of the locals that come in to have a drink after work - they may be a nicely dressed homeless individuals. I recommend this hotel if you are a couple looking to have a romantic time.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the buildings downtown, the lights of the buildings are beautiful.

Our son got married in Dallas and they picked the Aloft in downtown Dallas to house all of the wedding guests and wedding party for the weekend of Nov. 8 - 10. The minute you walk into the hotel you are surrounded by this amazing colorful architecture; super modern. The architecture has an unfinished concrete and industrial look to it; really cool. The hotel staff was extremely friendly; you felt as if you were talking to friends. The morning breakfast is very simple but sufficient; the tacos and coffee were great. The bar area is really cool as you can take your pick of where you want to sit from an array of comfortable couches and chairs. There is a pool table in that area; the kids had a great time with that. It was the perfect weekend, not only because of the wedding, but because of the Aloft Hotel and their staff. The hotel is in a perfect location; easy access to everything in downtown, uptown and Oak Cliff. Also, Pioneer Park is right across the street from the hotel. It has a sculpture of a herd of steers with a cowboy herding them. Also a beautiful but simple waterfall sets the background for this lovely park.

Room Tip: Request a corner room; it is more spacious.
