Everything was great except for the following:
The parking deck in relation to hotel is a joke and the entrance to the parking deck is not the address of the hotel.
In a maze of big city skyscrapers and one way streets, the VERY small Aloft" sign and address of the hotel is like finding a needle in a haystack.
I am very familiar with uptown Charlotte. I can't imagine how difficult it would be for someone who is not familiar with the city.
The worst part is the hotel fire alarm is connected to the entire EpiCenter. So if the fire alarm goes off at the Epicentere or someone pulls the fire alarm as a joke anywhere in the hotel and/or the EpiCentre, it alarms everywhere.
And to add to the fury, the staff at the hotel didn't even know if there was really a fire at the hotel, somewhere else or no fire at all.
We stayed up pretty late, yet the fire alarm woke us up on three separate occasions between the hours of 2:30 a.m. and 4:30a.m.
Other than those things, my experience would have been perfect.
The problems listed above are not the fault of the hotel staff. With that being said, the staff was great.
