Reviewed 30 July 2014

With the W style but cheaper the Aloft is one of the places you can enjoy one of the most new and popular spots in Guadalajara. Just in front you will find a really cool "cantina" and a lot of options for breakfast or dinner with you couple. the pool it`s ok about size but it has and awesome view because is a outdoor pool, ask in the front desk to turn on the heat of the water and go out at night if you are lucky like us you will have the pool justo for you and your girl

Room Tip: don`t forget to take you SPG membership number

Room was spacious for the rate we paid, shower was big and shampo and soap were of a decent quality. Floor 20 had a good view of the city specially at night. Pool was ok as well but there aren't enough chairs nor sunbeds. staff was really helpful at all times specially the girl at the front desk. Food lacks variety and quality as well, we found this point to be very disappointing it literally could be an airplane meal. A good stay overall.

I have nothing but praise for this hotel, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my 2-day stay. Even before my arrival, when Sr. Miguel Angel Bautista kindly emailed me with answers to all my queries, I could sense that my stay would be fantastic.

The staff are all young, professional and super friendly. Upon arrival, the check in was swift and I was given an upgrade to a lovely 1-bedroom suite on the 21st floor. Even though I'm an SPG platinum, Aloft hotels do not usually do upgrades, so I'm especially grateful that this property has upped the bar on this. The floor-to-ceiling windows afforded me a breathtaking, panoramic view of the city and surrounding hills, which I enjoyed to the hilt while working at the long desk. The suite was very spacious, with a large entry and a separate bedroom. The bathroom was huge and had another outstanding view from the glassed-in shower. My only quibbles are that there was not a very comfortable sitting option ( the chairs were plastic and the sofa more a chaise longue). In addition, the only TV was in the bedroom necessitating one be bed-bound to watch.

The included breakfast was limited, but good (coffee/tea, eggs, frijoles, and fruit). The gym had a good variety of equipment and the lap pool a good length.

The neighborhood was very verdant and directly across the street stood a small mall with a variety of restaurants ( Japanese, Italian, Mexican, Argentinian, Starbucks), a cinema and some shops.

I highly recommend this great-value property when in Guadalajara.

Room Tip: HIgher floors have spectacular views.

I stayed at this Aloft as an SPG member, and had a wonderful stay. I contacted the hotel in advance, as I was there for medical recovery, and Miguel Angel Bautista, the reservations chief, was extremely considerate and made sure that the hotel accommodated my requests. In fact, as someone who stays in Alofts regularly, I am pleased to say that this was the best Aloft experience I have had (and I always like Aloft). The staff was all extremely friendly and helpful. The room was exceptionally clean. The view was gorgeous (a view of the whole city), and the location was convenient. As I was confined to the room for three days straight, the fact that all these aspects were so well taken care of made a real difference to me. If you are going to Guadalajara, I highly recommend this Aloft.

Room Tip: Higher floors have amazing views.

Aloft is not a full service hotel, so think Holiday Inn Express with a modern fresh look. You basically let yourself in into this property; no one to help with luggage. The main reason I chose the property was the extremely generous “Free Nights SPG Awards”. Based on points/value equation, this property is an excellent choice.

The location is in a growing “suburban” area with tons of traffic, so take transit times into account. I normally stay in Expo area, and getting into out of hotels there are much easier. Here, if you have a car, getting in and out is a pain because there not much turning space, with difficult to access parking.

Staff is not overly friendly and for the most part do not even acknowledge you . I asked for a wake call, never got it, I guess that’s why they have alarm clocks in the room. Daniel, at checkin was the friendliest and I mostly dealt with him. I asked for late checkout extension, and he said no problem.

The hotel definitely grew on me. I initially was turned off by the feel o walking into a converted warehouse with exposed concrete walls, but innovative design. There are mostly pluses with the room, the shower had lots of water pressure. There are ample lights. The beds were comfortable. Free fast internet. Getting to the room is very easy and fast, no need to walk through a lobby.

This was our first stay in an ALOFT hotel and it certainly did not disappoint. We're Starwood fans and as SPG members, this hotel offers unbeatable value (so use your Starpoints)! Normally we stay in the Westin when visiting Guadalajara, however this trip we decided to try something new & we're so happy we did.

The hotel has a fresh design style and the modern, contemporary feel certainly appealed to us. From the "non-elevator" elevator music to the self-serve (yet still very cool & convenient) eatery & bar in the lobby, this hotel brought a refreshing change from the sleek, yet very business-like feel of the Westin, GDL. Danny & Patty, the front desk staff, were definitely (as torilove73 stated) "uber friendly", as were all of the hotel staff that we dealt with. I loved their energy and eagerness to assist with anything we needed.

The surrounding area is neat as well, and offers plenty of unique eateries adjacent to the hotel, as well as a couple of commercial centers which are within a 5 min. taxi ride. The Parque Lineal is just a couple blocks up and offers a great 1.2 mile jogging path with a number of exercise apparatuses along the way.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found that the only thing we missed were the Heavenly Beds & bathrobes (funnily enough) offered @ the Westin. Kudos again to the staff for being awesome. We'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: Ask for a golf course view. You'll fall asleep to the city lights and wake up to manicured fairw...

Hotel is brand new, but it has everything I come to expect from ALOFT hotels. The design is chic, contemporary, but with a nice Mexican influence. If you know ALOFT hotels, then you won't be dissapointed. The staff was very friendly. Always accomodating and always lending a helping hand. Upon arrival you are greeted with a warm smile and hello. The bar area (although mostly empty when I was there) has a cool vibe. My bartender was engaging and offered up the best little Mexican treats from their restaurant menu. To me, this felt like a little piece of NYC in Guadalajara. I will definitely be staying here again.
