Bold, fresh, fun = party hookup hotel

I would rate this a "bare necessities" hotel...no dresser or drawers for clothing storage; the bed consists of an adequate mattress supported by a low pedestal (no box spring); the 'desk' was more of a countertop; small vanity area in 'open-style' bath area, with minuscule toiletries, situated over a mini fridge across from a very small coffee service, all in the same four-foot square area...! Room was nice and clean; noticed some wallpaper peeling by window; the flatscreen TV was probably the best feature. Ice was unavailable on our floor; the bar lounge (just steps from the pool and exercise room) was a unique feature. The staff was very friendly. I was a little curious about the need for the armed security in the lobby (does the bar attract a particular element?) This hotel feels more like a 'hostel': somewhere just to spend the night off the street. For the price, I will not stay here again.

Nice hide away...

It was our first time staying at the Aloft. It was nice, the rooms where well kept and comfortable. This is an ideal location if you need to be near the PHL airport. The lounge area was cool and the bar staff was cool. They play music at night and it had a cool vibe. The parking is gated and shared with another hotel. Overall a nice stay...

There aren't too many great food options in the area. There is Ruby Tuesday's about 1.5 away and a Wendys, McDonald and KFC down the road.

Great hotel!

The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful during our stay. Our room was very nice and very clean. It was kind of small, but it was fine for us. The decoration through the the hotel was very nice. We didn't hear any noise from the hallway the entire time we were there. Loved the big screen TV also! I will definitely stay there again when flying out of the Philadelphia airport.

Business SPecial

Aloft has siter hotel Sheraton Suites across the parking lot. Meeting room at Sheraton was $200 and Aloft was $300. They would not coordinate either room rate or meeting room rate so we wound up staying at Aloft and meeting at Sheraton. Not good customer service.

Not too bad

The hotel is close to the airport and far from all of the touristy things we wanted to see. Cabs to the city painfully cost us $40. We didn't spend much time in the hotel, which was a good thing. The bar/lounge area was full of kids definitely under 21. While they weren't drinking, they were definitley annoying.
