Reviewed 13 November 2013

Rooms are nice, free internet. Basically the same as every other Aloft... The TV was big and centrally located on the wall, fitness area is good. I would definitely recommend this easy in and out hotel compared to downtown as you are only 10 minutes away.

Staff was very helpful and the area is great as there are little shops and restaurants that you can walk to. Stay here, its nice.

The Aloft is a very comfortable hotel of the newer modern style. At this hotel the personel are super friendly and service is great. Best of all is that there are a number of good restaurants and bars with in easy walking distance of this hotel. A delightful hotel in Homewood, a delightful bedroom suburb of Birmingham.

Love this section of Birmingham. Quaint shops, restaurants, beautiful area. Stay was great once in the room. I unfortunately arrived very early on a Saturday morning and was unable to check in early but lucked out spending time at nearby coffee shop called Octane with lunch at Little Donkey.

Friendly and courteous staff, clean and modern rooms and FOR ONCE ENOUGH PLUGS on the nightstands and the working table for all the gadgets a modern traveller caries around! A bit of an industrial flair that I personally like.

Excellent parking. If you arrive early enough you can park free of charge right in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: My room faced the backyard parking lot and was very quiet.

I have traveled twice to this location on business and both times their customer service was fantastic. The property is located in a suburban area of Birmingham called Homewood which has some great food within walking distance. The hotel staff were accommodating including when a quick rebooking of our reservation resulted in overbooking, they kindly put us in a nearby property. The staff member handled the situation very well informing us of the circumstance and giving us all the details we needed to find the other property.

The bartenders in the lobby bar are friendly and fun to chat up.

The room layout and amenities are unique from my hotel experience. The beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and modern with a high focus on detail and quality of materials used. The Aloft brand pulls off the "vibe" very well making the spot comfortable, memorable and enjoyable.

Room Tip: King bed rooms have entertainment hook up for HDMI input to the tv, so for iPad or laptop users with...

I have stayed at a few aloft hotels before and was always very satisfied. This time was no different. Hip decor, and clean and confortable rooms. The beds are a nice as you will find in a hotel. There is a restaurant attached next to the hotel and a full service bar in the lobby. They also have a "snack bar" where you can order breakfast and sandwiches.

This was our first stay at an Aloft property and we were quite pleased. It is definitely a sleeker design than most hotels, but it was fine for us for a weekend. The room was efficient and clean as was the lobby. Rather than a closed closet and chest of drawers, there is a hanging area with a curtain and shelves for your clothes. This worked just fine for us since we were only here for the weekend. The bathroom was very nice and the desk and FREE WiFi worked great. Garrick at the front desk was super friendly and very helpful. For breakfast, we can recommend Another Broken Egg - just a short drive down Hollywood through a beautiful old neighborhood. And after breakfast, you'll be conveniently near the zoo and the lovely FREE botanical gardens!
