Excellent hotel

This is my second time staying at this hotel and once again I couldn't be more impressed. I wouldn't recommend it for a family of four but for singles or couples it doesn't get any better. Not too big but just small enough. Huge comfy bed, very nice shower and bath area and plenty of parking. The actual location of the hotel and the toilet in the bathroom were my only negatives (the entrance to the hotel is hard to navigate in tight traffic and the toilet wouldn't flush fully...I guess to conserve water. Very European and kinda gross!). For singles and couples I highly recommend if the price is right.

Good potential, could be better managed

The first thing that bothered me was the daily parking fee. I had requested a hotel without the fee. The desk clerks were argumentative with one rudely stating: "that has nothing to do with us...you used a third-party vendor...everyone pays the fees!" as if I had done something wrong. The food options were nothing...apples, candy, sodas...no bathtubs only showers...worst of all, the bathrooms were not cleaned well...did not seem fresh...towels and linens were not a bright white...kind of dull looking. Overall, it was not my kind of place.

Different then usual

The rooms were very good and very modern. The staff was great and we loved the quiet rooms at night. Great shuttle service .The bar was small but functional but few amenities. The Sheradon is close and had a great loby and eating facility.

Cute Boutique Hotel

This was a very cute boutique hotel right on the outskirts of the city. Perfect for a weekend gettaway.

Not my best visit

I generally quite like the Aloft hotels, but this wasn't my best experience there. I find the staff to be quite friendly and helpful, but the accommodations were not as pleasant this time. The things that I found to be quite bothersome in this case were: detached and ungrouted tiles in the shower, quite a bit of what appeared to be mildew in the shower, a used bottle of lotion (it was indented as if squeezed and there was lotion around the opening and cap), blow dryer didn't work. I also feel that the food selection left a little to be desired on this trip as well. The only sandwiches they had at the time I was there were cheese wraps. I also don't love the beds because the mattress covers constantly bunch up when you're laying down. They're suitable though.
