we checked in for the weekend to watch UCLA destroy the Longhorns in austin. the hotel is located 15 minutes away from downtown in a commercial shopping district called the domain. plenty of restaurants and shopping to choose from all within walking distance. the surrounding area is quiet. the hotel is brand new with free parking, which provides intrinsic benefits in itself.
make no mistake, from a service, furnishing, and amenities standpoint, this is a minimalist hotel when compared to the westin brand (for example, which is located next door). however, they do all the little things right to make it feel like a hip and fun place to stay. the rooms are furnished in a trendy fashion and is very functional. the bathrooms feel like a locker room with lots of storage space and a fridge. not quite the luxury hotel room you can hang out in all day. but if you're looking for a decent place to sleep with an upscale, trendy feel, the aloft is perfect.
we paid $99/night...and for that rate we felt like this hotel was an unbelievable deal compared to others. if you're visiting austin i would recommend this hotel to those that don't mind being 15 minutes away from the action in downtown. the new building, price, and brand image of the aloft may be worth the extra drive.
