Reviewed 11 May 2012

Very friendly staff and great bar area to sit. Went here when live music was being played in this area and had a great evening. Would recommend this hotel for a stay in the Chesapeake area.

The aLoft is a trendy, contemporary budget hotel. The lobby is techno, the staff is accommodating and the rooms are predictable and modern. There is no bathtub but the shower is very large. The only problem we encountered was a child getting sick in the pool. The staff quickly made arrangements for us to cross the street to another hotel to use their pool. Wonderful guest services, definitely. Would recommend this hotel to all budget conscious travelers. No, it is not the W, but it is a great value.

I was not sure what to expect. It was really neat - kind of different in look, feel, sound than other hotels I've been in. The bed was a little firm, but I slept good in it. The air/vent/heat system was very quiet and sound proofing was done well. I could see the highway from the window, but could not hear it (well, if I listened I could, but the sound was not intrusive.) The flat screen wall mounted TV was nice, and had a wake-up channel you could set as your alarm clock. It seemed to be a more pleasant way to wake up. The regular alarm clock goes off first by blinking a light, rather than a buzzer. Coffee was always available and complimentary, but breakfast was not included. There was food available for purchase, and was a-la cart and relatively inexpensive. The room was clean and spacious. Complimentary bottled water was provided in the room. It had a closet-like alcove with a curtain and some shelves, but no dresser. The staff was very friendly. I did not use the fitness room or pool, but did go look at them. They seemed nice. They have a bar which also served food. I ate there on my last night and it was good. They have a pool table near the bar. They have a couple of computers with printers for guests to use, and also a couple of Ipad type things available to use too, (firmly mounted to the tables). They had WIFI that sometimes was overwhelmed and I would get disconnected. I could reconnect after a few minutes. That was probably the only annoyance I had. Everything else was great. It was close enough to shopping and other restaurants that you could walk if you wanted to.

We stay here when we went to Virginia Beach for a 4th of July weekend getaway. The rooms were nice and clean. The staff was very helpful, they had a print out of all the 4th of July activities happening in the area.

Love, love, love, this hotel! My husband and I wanted a night away and found the perfect spot. We got greeted with a wonderful smile from Andrew the Front Desk clerk as soon as we walked in and he was so professional and made us feel so welcome to be there. Our room was very nice and the bed so comfortable and inviting. We enjoyed the evening in the lobby/bar, our bartender Lisa was also amazing. The area was so clean, we had fun playing pool and they play all kinds of great music. The atmosphere was cool, modern, and fresh feeling which gives you a sense of being in another country with a city type beat. Food was so absolutely delicious and we even enjoyed the pool which was to a perfect temperature. Overall the experience was a fabulous from the wonderful General Manager Chris all the way to the people in the back that cook the great food we ate. I recommend this hotel all the way for a one night trip or a weekend getway.

Room Tip: The King bed was so comfortable and huge!!!!!! The TV is in the perfect spot in front of the bed on...

My daughter's high school cheerleading team came to the Tidewater area for a competition and we stayed at the aloft hotel in Chesapeake. From our first contact with the Group Sales Department, Rob and Sherissa took outstanding care of our group. Their friendliness and courtesy was only exceeded by their professionalism. They were great. Once we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by Christine who took care of us throughout our stay. We had to make changes to our rooming list at the last minute and Christine, without missing a beat, made all the necessary adjustments and changes to make our check in a breeze and our stay enjoyable. She was absolutely fantastic. Throughout our weekend the entire staff was friendly and warm, attentive to our needs and I would recommend aloft hotel and the ltd hospitality group to everyone.

Accused of stealing a hair dryer only I was never confronted? I simply received a $50 charge on my credit card. When I called to see what the extra charge was I was told that there was a missing hair dryer. When I attempted to say something I was referred to a answering machine if I wanted to dispute the charge. Funny thing is....Im bald. I haven't used a hair dryer in 15 years. Maybe they should charge their indolent house maid $50 for not checking to see if it was there on the previous stay.
A simple phone call would have been appropriate/honorable.

Greetings Randy V !!! I completely understand your frustration regarding the incidental charge placed upon your credit card and I would invite you to give me a call immediately at the hotel so that I can rectify the unfortunate circumstance. I know that our housekeepers are responsible to report daily to management any amenity that may be missing from the room and this is done on a daily basis and then the recovery process begins. We don't always have the ability to contact the guest before the charge and I apologize that this was the approach taken but everybody will contact us when charges are placed upon their card. I myself have not used a hairdryer in quite some time and I believe that we are on the same page, I look forward to your call, Sincerely, Chris Tanner General Manager.
