aloft Birmingham Soho Square
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Homewood
Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

Homewood is a bit South of downtown but this neighborhood is filled with great shops and restaurants.

Parking is free and easy at the Aloft and the staff, Garrick at the front desk and Lauren behind the bar, are super nice people. They really made us feel welcome and at home.

Great stay and we will be back!

Having stayed in several Aloft hotels, I knew what to expect, however, I did not anticipate the extremely helpful staff and management who went beyond the call of duty to help when I lost my phone. Everyone was so helpful and acted as though it was their jobs to go the extra mile. Convenient parking, excellent location, pristine building all added up to make a great visit.

Room Tip: Another hotel where the room location doesn't affect the quality of the experience.

The Aloft is in a great location for meetings all around Birmingham. You are a few minutes drive from the best restaurants in Birmingham and steps away from some other fun options. We have hosted events in their meeting rooms and lobby with much success. If you like very comfortable and modern accommodations in the middle of a cute neighborhood...this is the place for you!

We checked in on Nov. 21 to a lovely, comfortable room. Traveling alone with a small child can be tedious at best but with the hotel staff being as accommodating and friendly as they were during our stay, I can honestly say it made our entire trip much less stressful than it could have been. The rooms' decor is modern and trendy but extremely functional. Our coffee pot did not work but we had a replacement sent to our room within 10 minutes. Even though the weather was less than perfect, we were fortunate enough to be in a location within short walking distances of numerous restaurants, a grocery and even a pharmacy. Our staff, from the front desk attendants to the custodial staff were all very professional, efficient, helpful and friendly. We 'd only planned on staying one night but were so impressed, we booked an extra night. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we visit Birmingham, or any city that has an aLoft hotel.

this is an excellent hotel- in a very cute neighborhood. Its good sized, modern, the rooms are very new, the bathrooms impeccable, the bed, linens and pillows; absolute heaven. There is free parking outside; wait, really? yes!

Its got lots of little design details that make the room comfortable for both business or pleasure. There is also a great bar downstairs. My only complaint and why Im giving it 4 starts out of 5 is that the air conditioner was on the noisy side.

Otherwise I wish all hotels were as well cared for and enjoyable as the rooms at Aloft.

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.
