Entering the lobby area (which also has the 24 hour self service food bar, and an alcohol bar after 5 or so), you feel like you are walking into the future - or onto a Star Trek set. It is bright and the staff are friendly.
I had made my reservation via the central phone line requesting an upper corner room. Though my request didn't make it to this Aloft, the helpful attendant at the desk was very apologetic and she did get us an upper floor right away with no wait. No corner rooms were left.
The rooms are comfortable though the beds are pretty firm -and we like firm mattresses. The couch in our room was very straight and not so comfortable. My husband went to the lobby to read in the morning.
The elevators are cool. Music playing and the walls are hung with quilted "curtains." "Beam me up Scotty."
I thought we might be a little older than most of the guests from the way the hotel is advertised, but this was not the case. There were children swimming in the pool with their dad and grandparents in the lobby with their children and grand children.
Over all, a nice place to stay and location is good. We were in Boston for a Red Sox game and so wanted to be near Alewife station (about a 10 minute drive). We visited Lexington/Concord and the Sleep Hollow Cemetery - Emerson, Hawthorne & Thorough all buried there.
Except for the issue with the bathroom light shining brightly into the bedroom in the tips below, we very much liked this hotel. I just woke my husband up in the night and he woke me up WAY earlier than I had hoped on our quick get-away.
