“Ecclectic hotel at a great price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We got a great deal through Groupon for our stay while visiting WV for my hubby to participate in the Tough Mudder. The location was ideal and within minutes of everything we wanted to see. The only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars was because we requested the Kid's Camp Aloft and the air mattress didn't stay inflated. Also, on the website it stated it was supposed to come with a goodie bag but that was not with it. We were so glad to have been there on a non busy day so we were able to pick our room. We chose 602..far from elevators and up high in the rear of the building. It was very quiet. The rooms are very modern but unfortunately they didn't have a microwave. Also, the shower has a full length glass window that is open for anyone to be able to see from the bedroom. Very awkward for my kids seeing their father taking a shower. Not sure why it is like that. Pool is small but was just big enough for my 9 year old to play in. Definitely worth the $.

Room Tip: Up high on rear side of bldg if you want a quiet location.

We stayed here one night to check out Skyline Drive and downtown Winchester. Free parking, easy access off highway. Check-in was quick and easy. We had our dog so we had to sign a waiver. Was given free breakfast for two ($10 each) and one free hot drink per day - nice SPG Plat perk - $20 went a long way in the morning. Everyone encountered was friendly - though the lady cooking in the morning was bit grouchy.

Room is showing a little wear from last year. but in decent condition. Was missing lotion and soap and there was trash in the bathroom trashcan.

Location is close to downtown Winchester (>2 miles) and it had a good Thai place and coffee shop. Pool is nice but heavy handed on the chlorine!

I would stay here again as the value of 2K points per night is a steal. Great customer service.

I will definitely stay here again. Loved the healthy snacks, good bar, and modern, clean room with a really comfortable bed. They gym in the hotel is great for a mid sized hotel. Unlike previous reviewers, I did not hear anything from the lobby/ bar once I got off the elevator.

Nothing this hotel can do about this, but there are not a lot of good restaurants really close by.

Thanks from a road warrior.

I listened to what others said about the Aloft and gave it a try. They were right. The place is great. This is a $75 hotel bordering on upscale. Rooms, lobby, bar have a European motif; very functional yet aesthetically very nice. Little touches you won't find in a HIE or Hampton for twice the price; comforters, opaque walls, sinks designed as stand alone bowls, large cylindrical throw pillows, showers large enough to walk around in. Really a great facility at a great price.

Room Tip: Upper floors afford nice view of mountains

We stayed here overnight while visiting the national park. Nice clean hotel with a twist of modern design. This was the first time we ever stayed at an Aloft hotel, and based on this experience, we would stay at another one.

I stayed at the aloft Winchester in October, my first stay at an aloft. Loved the creative and comfortable design, especially the super comfortable bed with down coverlet. Lots of unique touchs, like a sanitized remote control (who doesn't appreciate that?), bathroom design with opaque glass shower wall to guest room, healthy breakfast offerings, friendly and attentive front desk service. The only problem was the A/C unit was quite noisy, which I reported to the front desk and they said they would investigate and remedy before the next guest.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the highway, which is noisy.

If you're planning on taking a beautiful ride through the Shenandoah Mountians via skyline drive from the south, this hotel is the perfect place to end that ride. Or begin, if you plan on taking that scenic ride down from the north. The hotel's eclectic feel gives off a modern, yet very comfortable vibe especially when hanging out near the pool table or listening to the live music coming from the bar. The staff is beyond friendly. There is a snack bar with light meals available if you're not interested in leaving the premises on a rainy day (check the times of when the snack bar is serving meals during the day). We didn't get to try out the very heated pool nor the well stocked exercise room but from what I could see, the other guests seem to be enjoying themselves they're as well. Either which way, this hotel is well worth a "stop and smell the mountainous air".

Room Tip: The higher floors have good views of the mountains that surround the area. And if you plan on sleep...
