I am an Aloft follower and always will be. Like all Alofts, the building is fun inside and out. This location has history and Aloft should let people know about it. The property use to have the Floridian Hotel on it and if you look at the picture of the Floridian, it looks like the Aloft (just turned around). However, Aloft brings the updated look and FUN. The staff and rooms are welcoming and accommodating. The beds are comfortable, but the pillows are very soft. All of the halls and common areas are nice and clean, even the nice parking lot that is properly lit for security. The one con for this location is that it is VERY NOISY. It does not appear that anyone thought about the location and how much traffic goes by. The hotel is on the corner of Monroe Street and Tennessee Street and they are both busy all day and night. My wife and I were on the Monroe Street side and on the seventh floor. Even though we were as high up as we could get, we were awoken several times during the night by loud music coming from the vehicles and trucks going by. If I stay again, we will request seventh floor and with a pool view. We also had some inconsiderate people on our floor, but I could not locate what room they were in. A solution to help with these two problems was to turn the fan to on, not on auto (makes it constantly run to drowned out the noise).
There are things to do if you are not going to the FSU or FAMU games. The hotel has a nice pool, but the sun will not get to you until later in the day and even then you may not get it because of the buildings. The lobby has a pool table and bar that are fun. The capital building is less than mile south on Monroe. The Challenger Learning Center is about a mile away and is off of Bronough Street. This place is fun for kids and the IMAX is there too. There is a chain of parks that are very nice to walk and they have events going on sometimes. The Civic Center is about two miles away, but it is easy to get to and I think they will shuttle you there (ask when you make reservations). For places to eat you will have to look around. The hotel has food, but it is VERY expensive. If you walk south on Adams Street you come to the downtown area that has food, bars, and clubs. If it is a weekday, there are places on Monroe Street as well. However, the downtown area closes at about 9-10pm unless you are clubbing and hanging with the college crowd. If you need to know more, let me know. Otherwise ENJOY Tallahassee and Aloft.
