place is getting a bit worn, room needed attention, wall paper peeling , shower tile dirty, was just not good at all, trouble with my reservation, seems the desk person checked me in with my first name as my last name, when some one came in the morning to pick me up, was told I never checked in , my ride to a meeting left, forcing me to rent a car to make my meeting a hour away, not good at all !

Room Tip: make sure they check you in under right name

We went to Philly for the weekend to see a concert and take in some site and the Aloft was very convenient. Only 15 minutes from the Wells Fargo arena and 20 from the historic area. Parking was only $12. The rooms were very comfortable and they had a nice bar with pool table ground floor. We would stay here again.

Overbooked and no bartender, we waited over an hour and no one ever showed up. Can hear road noise and people in hallway. Tiles in shower cracked and grout not clean. Bed is hard and pillows are tiny. Also have to walk to another hotel to eat. Price is good and staff is really nice, but doesn't make up for noisy room.

My wife and I stayed here for a quick stop on a Saturday night. We found the hotel itself to be dirty. The halls were dirty, there was damage to the decorations in the halls. Our first room was all around dirty. The walls had visible stuff on it, the tile in the shower needed a thorough cleaning. The grout had lots of mildew etc on it. We went to get a different room when we saw the shower. The front desk seemed to already know about the shower problem. The second room we were put in wasn't much better. The walls didn't have the dirt on them but the shower was still dirty. We decided to just skip using the shower (An apology might be due to the people next to us on our flight the next morning). Part of the shower problems I think is a design problem, It's a standing shower with tiny tiles everywhere. Combine that with a lazy cleaning staff and you'll get mildew in every shower.

After getting settled we went downstairs to grab a drink from the bar. We were told their computer systems were down, but that if we went across the street (Four Points) they'd give us a free drink. They did, and it was good of them to offer it. Although I'm not sure why we couldn't just get the free drink from the bar at the Aloft.

I'd look for other options nearby. To us, it'd be worth the extra money for a clean hotel room.

We love the aloft - they have very competitive parking rates (better than the airport), and it's a lot easier to get up for an early flight when you're a five minute shuttle ride away.

They have a very modern theme and the rooms are clean and in good shape. They also have a nice bar and an outside area to relax during the evening as well as a pool table. Don't really have anything negative to say, it's a nice hotel and usually very reasonably priced, great place to start a trip from PHL.
