My husband and I decided to stay at Aloft after finding a Groupon deal that made it the best price out of the hotels in the area. Our stay wasn't fabulous, but it wasn't terrible either. Checkin was fast and super easy and the woman at the front desk was nice and friendly. The room was clean and modern. The bed was a little firm for my taste, but overall comfortable. The biggest downfall for me was lack of hot water in the shower. It took forever to warm up and when it finally got hot...it wasn't really all that hot, just sorta luke warm. I did tell management about it at checkout and they said they were looking into the issue.
You should also know that this hotel is dog friendly. Being a dog owner myself, I really appreciated that feature (although we did not have our dog with us on this trip). But, if there are dogs on your floor, and they bark, you will hear it. The walls are thin. During our stay, someone left their dog in their room late at night, and that dog barked nonstop from about 11 p.m. until about 3 a.m. I couldn't sleep at all. Even the TV didn't drown out the noise of the barking dog. I know this is nothing hotel management can really control, but it is something to keep in mind if you definitely need a quiet night of sleep.
The hotel also has a snack area in the lobby that is open 24 hours...a nice feature for late night munchies. Prices were high, but nice if you need something to eat in a pinch.
I don't know if we'll ever stay at an Aloft property again, but it's just your average, run of the mill hotel...a decent price for an overnight stay.
