“Aloft Style. Nice and Good Location”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Stayed at a couple of Aloft's this week and although the concept is pretty much the same (and it's a good concept), the Houston Aloft is in a great location and is a well tuned property. Plenty of parking with access to rooms directly from the garage which is nice. Decor is standard Aloft which is W-Hotel chic and a bit of Euro flair. I always find it enjoyable.

Service was good although had a short wait checking out. Rooms were clean and in complete functioning order including high speed wifi.

For the price point and location, don't think that you can go wrong.

The great thing about Aloft hotels is that you know what you're going to get. The bad thing about Aloft hotels is that you know what you're going to get. The room is exactly like any other Aloft room I've stayed in. Free Wired, Entrepreneur and Detail magazines, charging ports for all your devices, Bliss bath products, wxyz bar. The Aloft Houston by the Galleria is within walking distance to the galleria and surrounding shops. 2 minutes drive to the freeway, and there's many restaurants down Westheimer road. Great location. The price varies greatly for this property - at the $150-175 range it's a great value for where it's located, the comfy beds, free wi-fi, clean rooms. Any more than that, the Westins connected directly to the Galleria are a more upscale (but less trendy and less updated) option.

My partner and I were on a Road Trip from Orlando, FL to Santa Fe, New Mexico and we stopped in Houston for two night and stayed here the first night. What a great location, decoration and comfortable bed!. We stayed in a double queen (only room available). If it was because we were staying with a friend the second night I will definitely stayed here again. About the valet, don't choose it unless you really want it. Self parking is only $16 and elevators take you from your floor to the garage floors.

The Galleria area in houston has it's ups and downs. Nothing is very cheap but the Aloft is a great all around hotel without a lot of unnecessary frills !Parking is secure and covered but you do have to pay for it, so don't be surprised! Very little in this area of Houston is free and if it is you probably don't want to stay there!

I had pre-purchased two nights at this hotel for a wedding. When we got there (very late) we were ignored, then treated rudely by the girl at the front desk. She then told us that they only had a room with a king bed. It was myself, my husband and my two kids - ages 10 and 13. No way we could all 4 fit in a king bed!! We were SO tired and begged her to help us. She was like "uh, sorry". I asked if they had a roll away or a sofa bed. She said there was nothing she could do. AND we could NOT get our money back since it was pre-paid. We had to leave and pay for a room at another hotel. We will NOT be going back or using Priceline again!!

Thank you for your review and we sincerely apologize for the issues you encountered. Not being recognized and ignored is unacceptable and this will be brought to our team’s attention. We make every effort to accommodate a guests request but the third party booked the only room available and we apologize for their mistake. We do not offer roll away beds nor do we offer suites with a couch or sofa. I completely understand how frustrating it is when a reservation is booked in error. We are more than happy to ensure that you are refunded do to their mistake as that is the right thing to do for any guest. We are more than happy to ensure you are fully credited and we do apologize or the error. Thank you again for sharing your feedback on your stay.

I stayed here back-to-back within the week due to the convenience of its location. Rooms were OK if you're into the minimalist motif, but for me it was just what the wallet needed. Great price, centrally located and a bar that was great. Ask for Linda.....really great bartender and made the stay fun.

Downside, besides the traffic on day one.....A/C was loud and water pressure on day three was miserably lacking.

Room Tip: Ask for side street room and not one facing Westheimer. Heravy traffic noise well inot the night.
