We haven’t checked out of this hotel yet, but I’m ready to share that some of the rudest hotel guests stayed here last night! Grown 30-50 year olds shouting down the hallway at 9 am – really? And not just once but all morning. There are do-not-disturb signs all down the hall, ignored by these oafs. Also ignored by housekeeping, who rattled the door at 10:30 am despite the bright orange do-not-disturb sign hanging on my door. In the furthest corner of the room, we could hear any conversation, bump or bang in the hallway quite clearly. Even those in courteous “hotel” voices. To compensate we ran the fan all night.
The room itself is spacious and has a contemporary Scandanavian feel. Unique set-up with the beds in the middle of the room against a wall separating the open bathroom from the sleeping area. The desk looks out the window. There are no DRAWERS anywhere, so if you normally unpack luggage, there is no where to put your belongings. Laid out on the settee, I suppose. An unusual flat closet concealed by a curtain in the bathroom area holds hanging clothes in a vertical fashion. Comfortable beds and pillows. These are NOT block-out shades, plenty of light in here with shades fully drawn. It’s the 2” gap between the tall windows and the shades.
Free wifi, refrigerator (no microwave), free bottled water and in-room coffee are nice touches. The lobby is urban chic. The ceilings in the halls and rooms are very high with ultra-modern artistic lighting. The front desk check-in clerk was alone, seemed overwhelmed and didn’t greet me. I’ve always wanted to stay at an Aloft, but will not stay here again. Perhaps the other properties are better? For the same money, I can get a quieter hotel, albeit not so design-oriented.
