My partner and I stayed at this aloft hotel twice in the past few weeks. It is a beautifully designed hotel, and that by far is its best feature. It's difficult for tight-budget aesthetes like me to find contemporary places to stay at an affordable price, and this place qualifies.
But it seems that we payed in other ways. There is no--I repeat NO--insulation in the walls. From belching to phone conversations to opening and closing the window shade, every little activity in the adjacent rooms was audible. At one point I went to the corner to make sure there wasn't a physical passageway between rooms. I was convinced I could see into the other room, that's how clearly we could hear. This made for some difficult and poor quality sleep.
Another plus: proximity to whole foods. Walk there for a healthy dinner. Another minus: taxi fare from the airport. Outrageous price, more than the fare from Heathrow to central London, even when you account for the exchange rate!
