La Quinta Inn & Suites Winchester
Ranked #16 of 25 Hotels in Winchester
Reviewed September 13, 2013

This is not your basic chain hotel by any stretch of the imagination. The decor is more postmodern, or, as one reviewer said, cold and industrial. Yes. And interesting. The design of the room is efficient and attractive. Nice public facilities including indoor pool, bar, and snack area with reasonably priced snacks.

The bed was comfortable. I could have used more towels and coffee. In summary, this hotel offers good value for the price.

This was to be my wife's birthday weekend with friends and we got a Groupon for 2 nights stay for a wine tasting weekend. The hotel is modern looking, maybe a little too modern for us. The rooms are sparsely furnished, just an office chair to sit on and a king bed. The bed was comfortable for sleeping or maybe it was the wine that put us down for the night. Very modern, plenty of outlets for plugging in any number of items from cell phones to laptops. Large flat screen TV on the wall, but the picture was washout because not every channel is in HD.

The hotel also has the Wxyz lounge. Saturday night was salsa night, and it was loud even five floors up at 1AM in the morning. No Continental breakfast, but if you want a coffee or a pop tart, they sell them in the lobby in the morning. We found ourselves across the street at the Dunkin' Donuts.

One things we immediately noticed was the lobby area was not kept. Their is a pool table in a common area near the check-in desk and it was littered from the night before with candy wrappers and newspapers on the floor and furniture. The lobby television(s) were not on or inoperable or they had them turned off. The 4 or 5 televisions in the lounge were all on, but on the same channel... we found that confusing.

Exercise room, pool and hallways to the rooms were clean, however the elevators could use a wipe down.

For the value of the Groupon package we received, it was acceptable, but at full rate I would have been doing a lot of complaining during our weekend stay.

Room Tip: Check Groupon for package discounts, otherwise I would find another hotel in the area that offers a...

Dear Limo_George,
Thank you for your online review. Aloft Hotels is one of Starwood Hotel's nine lifestyle brands and well a good fit for tech savvy, self-sufficient travelers and may not fit everyone's travel style. Aloft Hotels promotes open spaces and vibrant energy ideal for travelers to meet, mix, and mingle with other guests. We only offer free coffee daily, however, we do have made-to-order breakfast options (like waffles and breakfast sandwiches) available for purchase at Re:fuel, our 24-hour pantry. Thanks again for your comments and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

We loved how well designed & thought out this hotel is. Normally, to have conveniences like this, you would have to stay in a major urban market and pay triple the price.
From the concession area to the bar to the swimming pool, elevator & rooms, this is one of the most modern hotels we've ever stayed. We absolutely loved our stay.
There was one problem, though. The wireless network is completely open, meaning there is no password required. This convenience also means there is no security protecting your e-mail account. For the first time in 15 years of daily use of my e-mail, my account was hacked & a spammer e-mailed everyone in my contact list to try to sell them weight loss supplements. Not a good thing.
If aloft would simply put security on their wireless internet, I would give them 5 stars.

If you need a hotel that accepts dogs without charging extra, aloft does. We stay here only we when we have a dog with us. We've taken advantage of their 40% off 2d day stays which makes their rate more appealing. During one of our stays, there was a sizable party going on right off the lobby. Fun maybe if you're an attendee, less fun you're dragging your luggage through to the elevator. Also dispells any quiet relaxed atmosphere if that's what you're wanting.

My husband is a huge fan of Starwood Hotels, this was our first stay in an Aloft. We made a stop along our way to NC, the hotel was beautiful. Very fun & trendy. The rooms were SO clean and comfortable. Definitely look forward to another Aloft or SPG hotel.

The hotel is clean and the staff friendly. All in all we had a good stay. The room is however a bit noisy, we were on the sixth floor and could still really hear a lot of traffic noise. The windows are not sound proofed well. Also, the door to the room is loose fitting so it moves in the frame anytime anyone else on the floor closes their door. We didn't notice that until the next morning when housekeeping started making rounds. I would recommended aloft just because its clean but it does need a few minor improvements. Also to be noted is that if you're an SPG member there are no SPG perks. No club room, no special floor, no welcome gift, just the promise of a few extra points that you have to wait months to see. Kind of a let down but oh well.

I had never stayed at an Aloft before so I decided to give it a try. Conveniently located off of 81' this was the perfect hotel for a one night stay. The room was clean, service was friendly. I would definitely stay here again on future roadtrips.
