This is trying hard to look like a modern boutique hotel, but it comes off in the end as kind of cheap. Don't get me wrong, it's a good value for the money, but they are using their spare style in order to spare some change.
The lobby is a marketing tool, where you're surrounded by things for sale. The food area is sort of one large dispenser of everything you can serve yourself, none of it priced too low. The bar is very prominent and also willing to take money from you. If you spend much time on this floor, you will have wiped out any savings you made from booking a relatively inexpensive room.
We didn't have time for the small-looking pool or the nicely-equipped exercise room.
The room is comfortable, in a sterile way, with a big platform bed and a very moderne bathroom. The stylish sink drained too slowly, but the big shower was a treat.
If you don't want to know where you are, this place is perfect. You could be anywhere on the planet. However, the charming town of Winchester is just a short drive away and I'd recommend that for all meals and for a nice stroll on the newly-refurbished (they were still working on it) walking mall.
In the end, the Aloft Winchester is worth a good rating, but I won't seek out another Aloft property soon.
