I liked the Aloft brand, I enjoy the clean minimal design...however. I felt this hotel was all of that and then some. Aloft is know for it's clean fresh hip minimalist design. I loved the lobby and gathering area. The bar was great the bartenders fun and knowledgeable, the drinks...oh yes! I especially loved the Asian pear martini. The bedding and beds were very nice, comfortable and high quality.
Now what really didn't work me. I was attending a wedding so this was the venue and a ton of my family was in the hotel. This hotel was is not for women (or kids for that matter). I travel with my two girls both teens. We are experienced travelers, we love it. So this comes from a place of experience.
The shower had only dispensers for shampoo in the bathroom. It was shampoo/conditioner in one kind of shampoo. Uhmmm no, that doesnt work with longer hair at all. The dispenser was set so high on the wall my 13 yr old could barely reach it. Seriously?
I paid for a Savvy Suite, it was NOT worth it in anyway. Just a large empty space with another tv but no couch to watch. There was two desk chairs - one of which I was using as a night stand by the bed, and one rocking chair. Blah, not worth the extra cost since the room was unusable. There was only valet so the price is what is listed plus the cost of valet - $20, I think.
There was a breakfast area by the reception desk, pay as you go. Also, since the NBA training camp was at the hotel there was a buffet available for purchase. I took a look then took a pass.
All in all, I won't stay here again. I won't mark Aloft off my list in all locations but I am going to be more careful of the brand in the future.
