I stayed here prior to a business meetings and was very happy with my stay. The rooms are really nice and chic. The bar & xyz marketplace both charge extremely reasonable prices on food & beer, which was nice for a change! My only minor complaint is that the curtains didn't completely cover the window, so there was a crack of light that peaked through, but I slept like a log and was never bothered by airplanes or the light much. The staff was all very nice and I will definitely stay here again. I also got a smoking deal for $125/night...

Occasionally I have to stop overnight outside of Philadelphia and have had a hard time finding a good hotel near the airport. Aloft was a great surprise. The van picked me up timely and the staff was very helpful on checking in late at night. The room was simply amazing. The bed was extremelly comfortable and the pillows were perfect. I have not slept like that in months. The bathroom was also well appointed and the towels luxurious. On checking out I realized the lobby area had a kitchen and the staff could make me a hot breakfast. All of this at a reasonable price. I almost did not want to leave.

My only complaints would be the parking lot with those dumb tickets to get in and out and then having to pay 7 bucks for it! I've never stayed at hotel in my life that charged for parking. And the lack of food choices. I thought the small snack area there was sufficient but very pricey. But over all the staff was great. So helpful getting us a taxi and just very pleasant. The bartender wasn't great but the rest of the staff made up for it. Best part? No bed bugs!!

This hotel was perfect. It was clean and modern and also had a free shuttle to and from the hotel. They did have snacks on sale but we walked across the parking lot at the sheraton.

Stayed here one night with our dog while we were visiting Philly:
- Clean, standard Aloft rooms, nothing particularly special.
- Pool small apparently standard for aloft.
- Gym clean.
- Staff friendly.
- Dog friendly, although not many places to walk the dog in the area.
- Location is literally at the airport, you can smell the tarmac pretty heavy.
- Parking is $7 for 24 hours and can be painful getting in an out because the lot serves several other hotels, but only one gate each way. Very annoying.

Overall, it works because it's on the cheaper side. Short drive into Philly. Nothing special, but dog friendly is a plus.

Guess I like the old standard hotels with cozy stye furniture and Lights.
. After a long day of traveling, you just want to relax but the TV was broken and ice was only available at the reception desk, the Aloft is not for me.

Bed is hard as a board. Tile in shower was loose. Pool freezing cold and actual size of pool is not consistent with images. Pool is a fun time if you are looking for an audience. This hotel is a good concept, however they have not invested enough and have cut corners. Ok place if you want a different experience. All staff were very friendly. Parking deal was flawless.
