We decided to stay at this hotel because the room was $89 which was incredibly cheap compared to other hotels we looked at. It is also within a few miles of IKEA and the Frisco shopping center.
Our stay here was okay but there were a few small flaws with our room that made it less enjoyable: 1) small room, 2) cold bathroom floors, 3) TV remote with stuck buttons, 4) no heat, and 5) no free breakfast.
Upon opening our very tall room door, I immediately realized why it's called "Aloft" -- the rooms are set up so that you walk in the bathroom and the bed is located behind the bathroom wall. The room was quite small but it had a small fridge and coffee maker which we appreciated.
The shower...oh the shower!! It was a wonderful walk-in shower with glass door and they have Bliss products (sold at Sephora) to use for shampoo, body wash, soap, lotion, etc. I loved that they smelled good and weren't the usual cheap hotel toiletries. The only complaint I had about the bathroom was that the ceramic floors were VERY COLD to walk on.
The flat screen TV on the wall across from the bed was a great feature. The buttons on our remote didn't work very well though...some of them would get stuck when you pushed them. So we really appreciated that they had an app you could download to change channels and adjust volume from your phone.
Our room was also incredibly cold. We had the heat on for about an hour before we realized it wasn't really working. We turned it up to 80 and it was still putting out COLD air. I called the front lobby and they brought up 2 blankets but that was it. The room was cold but it wasn't unbearable.
We had a good stay here aside from a few issues. We both love modern design so we really loved the overall layout of the hotel. We also liked that you could opt-out of housekeeping and receive a $5 voucher for being eco-friendly. We used this on a chocolate milk and muffin since breakfast here is NOT free.
