We traveled to Richmond for the high school graduation of my wife's younger cousin. We found Aloft on a price-seeking website, but ended up using our AAA membership. The price for the night was great. The location of the hotel is in a very new strip of businesses, apartments/condos, and malls just outside Richmond, VA.
The hotel has its own free parking garage, as well as a pool, a small but well equipped exercise room, free wireless internet, and complimentary billiards table in the lobby. The decor strives for a hip, modern sense, and while I'm generally not a fan of this motif, Aloft makes it work.
Our room was large, with a 40" or so flat screen plasma, iPod dock, very nice bedding, and a large work desk. The room also featured a microfridge and safe at no additional cost. The bathroom was shower-only, however was also excellent.
The hotel staff was exceptionally helpful and pleasant, even at the late hour of our arrival. Every member of the staff was friendly, patient, and eager to please. The professionalism of the staff is definitely one of the highlights of our stay.
We would recommend Aloft to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced hotel that offers a wide array of amenities and an excellent all-around time in the Glen Allen, VA area. We will definitely be back.
