Modern, Friendly, and Walkable

Stayed here over Easter weekend. The pictures (on this site) were truly representative of what we experienced. Very MODERN esthetics. THE ROOM: Beds were firm yet comfortable, linens clean, pillows were abundant. Two table/desk areas gave my fiancé and myself different staging areas for our things (A BIG PLUS for us). Wireless phone in the room. Large tv with pay-as-you-watch options. THE BATHROOM: NO TUB but ample shower. NOTE-water pressure was not great on third floor. Staging area separated by a door with plenty of counter space. COMMON AREAS: Indoor pool was nice. Exercise room looked accommodating, but that's not my cup o tea. Restrooms and computers also available. Grab n Go snacks were available 24/7 as well as comp. coffee. Pool table, lounge areas and bar separate from additional attached restaurant. Outdoor area where we read, talked and had a cigar without feeling watched. NEIGHBORHOOD: This is located in a small downtown style area. Very Safe Vibe. Walked to dinner and breakfast and nightlife was available. Groceries, gas, and drugstore also within a mile. OVERALL: Clean, Safe, Friendly... will repeat our visit to this chain.

Pretty good

Pretty good, not great, but nice convenient location. Nice neighborhood and great nearby restaurants. Room had some broken tiles in the bath and I was in a handicap room which when I used the shower soaked the floor in the bath. Beds were comfortable and amenities were nice.

Sleepless in Birmingham

After waking at 4 AM in NC for a 9 hour drive to see my son in Homewood for my wifes birthday we arrived to a cold and uninviting hotel atmosphere. The decor appears to be geared to the very young business professional and not to the over 40 travelers. My first morning I was awakened at 5:30AM to the sound of very loud trucks just outside our window and the in room refrigerator kept us up all night. with a very annoying fan/compressor noise. Unplug it you say? I cant. my wife is diabetic and we need to keep her insulin refrigerated. Our stay was less than restful and to the point that we will not be staying here again another night. We are searching for another hotel to move to. This is definitely not the vacation weekend that we were hoping for. On a different note the staff is absolutely fantastic! Everyone is friendly and extremely accomodating to us. This hotel is just not the restful stay we had hoped it would be. Sleepless in Birmingham, AL.

Great experience

Normally I prefer to stay in downtown Birmingham, but this time I decided to stay in Homewood since there is a really nice village walking distance to the ALoft. The hotel was very comfortable. Nice bed and the room is very decent size. Great amenities in the bath and all very functional. Easy driving distance to downtown Birmingham as well as the suburbs and businesses off of Route 280. I liked my week stay at the ALoft.

Nice hotel, good interior design, clean

The bed was very good quality so I would say Aloft passed the first critical test. Very clean and a no smoke policy too. The room had instant hot water system-good. I received a $25 dollar charge on my credit card for wi-fi; I didnt see any notice of any additional charge and the front desk person gave me an access code and the inference from the conversation was the service was pro bono. Only other areas for improvement--AC unit was good quality but very noisy. Drain in the hand sink was manual so if you, for example, are inserting contact lenses you need to wash your hands twice. Also the sink was small---to release water you also had to manually release the drain stopper. Final comment---the counter for the sink was very low and felt uncomfortable to use. Short ride to the airport by cab. I might try another hotel the next time I am in Bham, but I would not rule out a second stay at Aloft

This hotel is a very short drive to all of Birminghams LGBT nightlife! (The quest, Al's on 7th, Joes on 7th, and Our place) The staff is very LGBT friendly as well.

Modern Living for Modern People

It was a very Modern style hotel, unlike any I had ever been to before. I liked the layout of the rooms and the comfort of the whole place. Love that they had Hungry Hungry Hippos for guest to play in the Lounge.
