Aloft provides a very modern and spacious hotel. I totally disagree with the comments on this site that the location is poor. It's a minute walk from the DLR station and yes you need to understand the underground but it's really easy to get to Central London - straight through to Tower Gate or Bank. I can honestly say I have never stayed in a 'city' hotel that was so spacious. Many thanks to the Duty Manager Lionel for upgrading us. We had a super room on the eighth floor with great views and the room was really well planned. Large bathroom, separate vanity unit in area with wardrobes and then two single beds in lovely spacious bedroom totally separated from the bathroom/wardrobes with two windows overlooking Excel and the Thames. Small gripe no china just 'take out' cups but probably appeals to the general clientele of this hotel. Great system in offering incentives if you don't want housekeeping. Clean and stylish I can't comment on the food because we didn't eat at the hotel at all. But the buffet style 'take and go' with really fresh looking fruit, sandwiches etc was a great idea. One other gripe - parking is separate and extortionate for the location so if possible drop off and park elsewhere! Pool area had a great atmosphere but water was cold and we were told it was open until 11pm but were ushered out well before then as 'they were conducting maintenance' However great stay and brilliant value for money and as I regularly visit London will be listing Aloft on my favourites for future stays.
