“Daddy scored”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Two words, "Daddy scored" sums it up from my 10 year old son who loved this place. Honestly, it's kind of a generic place that maximizes room space. But with the table games, pool table and indoor pool it is a total hit with the kids. The only thing missed was a place to eat. The refuel station is more of an outpost for microwave food. I enjoy the breakfast buffet offered by most Sheraton properties, I especially enjoy the wide range of fruit offered. That was missed at this SFO Aloft. But hearing those 2 simple words, Daddy scored, made the stay. Quick 2 minute trip to Bart.

Room Tip: If you value your sleep ask for a room not facing the runway.

Great location if you are not worried about going out as it is literally at the airport. You can hear the big planes coming and going so if you are a light sleeper you may want to think twice or have the Ambien handy. Typical ALOFT style which is very clean chic lines and mimics the older sister W. I thought it was a great studio, generous square footage, great bath products (BLISS SPA as with W but different scents), and free parking. My only other complaints is the AC unit is very loud in the room, and the bathroom light switch was annoyingly hard to find as it is the same color as the wall and on the metal door frame (so not on the wall and in the dark is hard to find). There is an IN and OUT burger less than half a mile away FYI.

Room Tip: Don't get a window facing the runways or listen to planes all night

This is my first time staying at Aloft hotel, a Vision of W hotel under Sheraton. The shuttle bus will pick you up and take you to the airport and it's very convenient. For frequent travelers, this is a great location because airport is within 10 mins (Arrive at night and only less than 5 mins). Hotel staff was very friendly when we checked in and provided great service, such as morning call, late check out option, and free drink vouches..ect... The room is very big, and has modern decoration. Ever though it's very close to the airport, you wouldn't hear take off/landing noise. I didn't have a chance to use its amenities but seems very nice. I really enjoy Aloft style of hotels because for so much less money, you can have SUPER stylist hotel like W. The only negative is the bed... not so comfortable....

My fiancee and I stayed at the Aloft SFO before our flight to Shanghai and really enjoyed the property.
It is newly renovated and has a very fresh feel. The shuttle came right on time and check-in was a breeze. The lobby is nicely decorated and the bar is a fun place.
The rooms look very new, have big showers and very comfy beds.
Overall, a great stay close to SFO!

A lovely place to stay if you want to be near SFO, shuttle to the airport provided and is very convenient. This Aloft is very new, very fresh and comes with a nice touch of modern decor. We enjoyed our stay there tremendously, especially with the runway facing rooms (though if you are light sleeper, you hear a little bit of the aircraft).

The bed is plenty comfortable, bathroom nice and clean. Bath amenities from Bliss a thumbs up! Had a very good sleep there for 1 night

Highly recommended place + value for money.

$20 parking per day (unlimited in/out)

Room Tip: Runway facing rooms gives a decent view of SFO and flight movements

The ALoft is a basic boutique hotel adjacent to SFO.
We have stayed at similar other properties and in comparison the lobby of this one did feel cold and the reception desk seemed uninviting with a lot of worn/ filthy items lying around.
The room had a nice size and was overall good. It looked clean except the big toothpaste(?) stains on the wall next to the sink.
While the modern design is attractive the view you have from your bed is not when you stare at the bland grey walls and white painted concrete ceiling.
We had requested the AC to be running as we would arrive late. While the request made it to the hotel it was not noticed. To compensate for the warm room the gentleman at the front desk offered us free breakfast for the morning.
Apparently he did not put a note down for the morning shift. So they were debating if I should get the 4$ or 6$ breakfast or any at all...
The fee for overnight parking is 20$. Although the airport is right next door you need about 10 to 15 min drive time.
