We travel a lot. I try to stay in different types of hotels wherever we go to keep things fresh. Simply put....The Aloft Doral is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. It is very new and exceptionally trendy. I normally do a good, bad, ugly type of review but there wasn't a whole lot of bad or ugly for this one.
1. Front desk staff were courteous, fast, and knowledgeable.
2. The pool is beautiful, very clean, and has a good selection of pool furniture.
3. The room(and overall hotel) was SPOTLESS
4. The beds and pillow were fantastic. Very similar to a Westin heavenly bed
5. We didn't watch a ton of TV but they had over 50 HD channels
6. Plenty of Free parking and Free WiFi
7. The bathroom/shower was beautiful
8. The fitness facility was large, clean, and had a ton of machines.
The Not So Good....
1. I realize that Aloft hotels don't generally specialize in restaurant/food service but the options in the ReFuel area were a bit limited.
2. The location is ok...Very safe but it's in a industrial type area. There were plenty of restaurants within 5 min drive though.
3. The bar doesn't open until 5pm....I would have loved a cold drink by the pool all afternoon but they weren't open.
I booked for $95 a night directly on their website and I felt like I "stole" the room. I've paid a lot more to get a lot less. I'm a huge fan now and will stay here any time I come back to the area.
