Aloft Phoenix-Airport
Ranked #52 of 174 Hotels in Phoenix
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 November 2009

Brand new Property by the Starwood Group, This seems to be Starwood's answer to Hyatt's "Hyatt Place" chain,and Starwood trumps!
This is a basically a EURO MOD, limited Service budget version of the high end "The W"chain, however Starwood Gold and Platinum guest should expect no upgrade, only 2 types of rooms are offered.

The hotel is extremely Euro Mod in design and furnishings (See pics), in fact my room is very similar to a room i had in Spain at the Le Meridian, Barcelona (STarwood).

Adequate desk and workspace with convenient power ports, a interface to play video and audio on the Phillips Flat screen TV in the room, large roomy king bed with nice headboard and good lighting and a great Retro Alarm Clock (In form and function)!

Bathroom and shower are small, the water pressure in the shower is abysmal, too bad as they have a fun and funky large round shower head that would be a treat with decent water pressure.

Bliss Spa products in the bathroom ( Ala The W chain) is a real surprise!. Not a big fan of the shampoo and body wash dispensers in the shower, but they appear tamper resistant.

Sadly, they skimped a bit on the bedding, the sheets and pillow cases are coarse and of a low thread count. many limited service hotels have upgrading their bedding these days so it is a bit surprising to see a Starwood new chain, the company being known to have started the upgraded bedding wars with their "Heavenly Bed", skimp in this department.

But I love this hotel, maybe it is the ultra modern rooms at a great price point, or the excellent accommodating genuinely friendly staff, The Free Wifi all over the hotel, the cool bar downstairs and funky lobby, it all works.

The Aloft does not have room service, they do offer a limited food selection at a food and beverage pantry next to the front desk, however next door is a convenience store and behind the hotel is a Ruby Tuesday restaurant.

The hotel is located at a Rail stop, 10 minuets straight to downtown and the convention center for $1.50.
Airport Shuttle runs on the half hour in the mornings and on demand other hours, 5 Minuets from PHX.

I was very pleased with Aloft, having stayed at various PHX airport properties, this is my new favorite!

The last thing I would expect myself to do is write a favorable review of a limited service property, but I really like Aloft.

First I have to say the one thing that I don't like, there are only two room types - king or double. There are no suites, no upgrades, nothing, well except that free hot beverage for Golds and Plats, but that is about it. I travel a lot, I love a good suite, but I can deal it was just one night.

This hotel brings service to the limited service property. I have some allergy issues that require my room to be cleaned in a specific manner and they did a great job on that. They even provided a cotton blanket in lieu of the comforter (because of my allergies). I rarely get that level of service at full service properties. Of course the usual stuff went well, check-in was well staffed, they have an SPG Gold/Platinum desk, but it is probably not necessary as there was only one person working. The front desk staff offered luggage assistance but I declined. The hotel had only been open for a few days so I had really expected them to be a little rough around the edges, but they were truly polished and ready for a challenge.

The room was clean and functional, with standard amenities, free wi-fi, LCD with HD service, comfortable chair and functional workspace, and a small coffee maker.

The pool is small but looked nice, however the building blocked the sun in the afternoon, so that can be good or bad based on your desires.
