Eh, very weird hotel. We're Starwood members and I'll admit I hate the W hotel chain and Aloft is a "vision of W Hotels". However, we were travelling with our dog and the location is a perfect overnight.
First, we checked in and with our dog went to our room. Opps, they gave us a room already occupied. Creepy and annoying! That was a first.
Ok, got a new room. These rooms are super ugly, office lighting, but whatever. Very thin walls, your dog will not sleep well keeping guard. You won't sleep well, crappy beds, cement pillows. What is the weird idea of a window to the shower? So stupid, so W hotels.
I understand they have college kids living there. That explains the boys carrying cases of beer in the elevator. Again, weird.
The termastat didn't work, the a/c was noisy and spuratic. The room wasn't very clean...really, dental floss stuck to the wall near the floor..gross. Housekeeping needs a bit more attention.
The next morning discovered no coffee packets by the coffee maker. "We're all out" they said. Well great, that just was the icing on the cake.
May not be worth accruing starwood points even if travelling with our dog. Just weird. I will say though, the staff was pleasant. I bet it's an embarrasing place to work for!
