Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

The hotel far exceeded our expectations and delivered as promised- room bright, clean, and bed very comfortable- - blinds kept out all light shining in so really appreciated that as I cannot sleep in a non dark room- will return next trip for sure

We stayed at Aloft before an early-morning flight and were pleasantly surprised! Being an "airport hotel," we were expecting no-frills -- but it's a spacious, clean, bright and airy spot just a few minutes from the airport and shuttle car return garage at SFO. Conveniently located about 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, it gave us those coveted extra minutes to sleep before heading home.

Our room was very large, modern and spacious, and the king-size bed extremely comfortable. The modern shower -- glass doors! -- was cool, as were the sliding doors and other touches. It had the feel of a European hotel and was fun, funky and different. As others have noted, the room was very quiet and dark with black-out curtains -- no sense that the airport was so close. Staff at the desk were very professional, and I had the sense that anything we needed would be delivered promptly (though we didn't need a thing!). Definitely recommend.

I stayed one night to catch an early flight at the end of vacation. It's just off the runway, five minutes from the rental car return. First time staying at this chain. Was pleasantly surprised to see a chic design, spacious room and great shower. Very clean. Pleasant staff. The room keycard has to be waved by the lock rather than inserted, which was weird and should have been explained by front staff. Only thing that bothered me was being clipped $20 for parking.

This Aloft is perfectly situated near SFO and a great place to stay on the bookends of a trip or if you want to be near San Francisco but not actually in the City itself. Modern, bright and funky but also simple decor with the creature comforts you need to get a good night of rest before an early morning flight, as well as a bar with good comfort food and social area with games and a pool table. We love their great stay-park-fly packages that are very competitive and the free shuttle that runs every 15 minutes for the quick drive to SFO. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: Compare and research prices directly with the property on the stay-park-fly packages instead of 3rd...

We decided to stay at the Aloft SFO because we had a very early flight the next morning. The Hotel was great. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped. Nice lobby with bar. What surprised us the most was even though the hotel is located mean the highway and airport, there was very little noise

we stayed one nite only but it is good for a few more days. it is a lovely de compression kinda hotel. it is very low key but full service. décor is minimal elegance. nice to be able to get your own cuppa tea or coffee in the morning and hang out in the airy lounge . no need to go thru a horrid buffet or wait for someone to serve you a coffee. beds were lovely and firm. the only concern was the air con, it would come on every 20 minutes and make humming sound. it woke me up several times during the nite but I am a very light sleeper.

Convenient basic and an apt property to stay near the airport. This one had all the basic amenities that you expect from a hotel but nothing fancy. This is a boutique hotel and very trendy indeed. Some rooms can be a bit of a walk from the elevators but thAts no big deal in my mind.

Parking can be a BIG problem and they share the parking with Westin. Well, the parking is steep at 20 bucks a night for an airport hotel and on top of that we had to Three rounds of the lot before parking on the poor head going in to ask where to park. I was told that the parking is operated and managed by a third party and tags such there is no hotel Parking. Apparently, anybody can get off the freeway and park there so it can be pretty full. Perhaps I was there over the long Memorial Day weekend and experienced that- May be.

Apart from that no complaints. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and Natasha was AMAZING. Rooms very cleaned and well maintained.
