Currently the only downside to this particular property is out of their control. There is some fairly heavy construction going on in front of the hotel that makes getting in and out of their parking lot a bit of a pain. None of the sound from the construction was heard inside the hotel, so that was not a problem.

This is a great place to stay if you are flying out JAX the next day. It is close--a straight shot to the airport. It is clean and well maintained. A little funky? Sure, but that is what Aloft is!

My new favorite hotel chain. I love the staff at both Aloft hotels I have stayed at. Much more relaxed atmosphere than normal full service hotels. Keep in mind this a very friendly, low service hotel (not valet, not bellman, no one to tip!)
They don't have a restaurant but have 24 hour food in the snake area, great sandwiches and salads. In the morning you can purchase hot ham/bacon/sausage/egg croissants
I love this place!!!

Its really hard to rate a hotel that tried to reinvent the wheel. Trendy....check. Cool bar....check. Pool and fitness center.....check. Overall comfort, well that depends.

If your idea of an uber cool day out is spending endless hour at Ikea, well this may be the place for you. The hotel is styled in a very modern decor and even smells nice when you walk in. Immediately noticeable is the booming music and club-like atmosphere. At first I thought it was cool to check in at a counter located directly adjacent to a night-club styled lounge and bar area. But then it hit me....I'm a business traveler and I'm tired. I want peace and quiet. I want a quiet drink and room service. But that's just me.

Upon entering the room I was once again taken to a Swedish furniture store. They tried to reinvent the bathroom by making the entire toilet/shower area share the same tiled floor. While this makes life easier for the housekeeping, there is nothing quite as annoying as getting out of the shower to a completely wet floor! It's cold and nasty. If someone wants to use the toilet, the entire floor is soaked....not smart! There is a reason the bathtub was invented.

Overall the place is in a great location which helps as the hotel has no restaurant....just a cold pantry area serving sandwiches and chips. The price is right and the staff friendly, but the concept of a Euro-chic hotel is just not my style after a long day on the road. Twenty-something's and singles w/dates will love it.

Be well fellow travelers!

$80 night govt rate, you can not beat this hotel near the airport, and no charge for pets!! Nice room, huge flat screen on the wall, very euro-Ish/trendy. All other pet friendly hotels near the airport will give you the Willie's. Confortable bed, and neat shower area. Staff is friendly. Safe and minifridge in room. Overall this hotel is an outstanding value, far surpasses any other pet friendly hotels in the area. Don't hesitate, book it now.

We stayed here with a party of 5 in December. The Aloft concept is great, especially if you like a funky modern vibe. This hotel is only a few years old and in a great location. Unfortunately some parts of the property are becoming very poorly maintained. We had to try SIX different rooms before finding one with dry, clean carpeting - the first five were soaking wet on the far wall of the bedroom, had mildew stains throughout, and smelled awful. Several staff members admitted that they're having problems with showers leaking around windows and into the sleeping area in many of the rooms. We finally wound up in a handicap-accessible room because those rooms have a different shower design, so they can't leak onto the carpet. I'd love to say that I would stay here again, because everyone friendly and helpful, and the property is a lot of fun. Even with the larger upper floor room, comped breakfast, and free drinks at the bar, though, we won't be going back. It just isn't worth it.

Room Tip: The upper floors are quieter; ask for a handicap accessible room to avoid leaking showers, if they h...

I found the hotel to be a gem when traveling with a dog. They are "pet friendly" and do not charge an extra fee for your dog. The room was very modern with an extremely comfy bed and clean linens. I like the idea of a duvet as opposed to a bedspread, and the Aloft offered a fluffy duvet-covered comforter. The air conditioner was a little noisy, but it didn't bother me a bit. Concerning the bathroom, I too, had a shower door with a gap causing a puddle which I soaked up with a bath mat provided. Bathroom supplies were sparce, but I always bring my own. They carried the Bliss line which is awesome; just somewhat short of adequate even for 1 person. I also found the staff somewhat removed and less than helpful. The rate was reasonable in comparison to the rates charged by other hotels for travelers. It was also superior in this category as it's a challenge to find a nice hotel that is pet friendly when traveling. One more important item is that I felt very safe traveling as a solo female. I will stay there again if I am in the Jacksonville area!

Our stay at this hotel was pleasant. Rooms are good size, nice and clean. Front desk staff is friendly. Bartendar makes an awesome martini! Located across from a huge shopping area so lots of options. Some little issues: the shower door had a gap so water leaked making a big puddle. Windows don't open and air unit has one speed, loud. The chamber maid didn't leave enough products like soap, lotion, cups. One day she didn't even clean or take out the garbage, just made the beds. Really dislike that breakfast was not inlcuded.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the back have view of the woods and pond.
