Short stay

The beds were so hard, both my wife and I woke in pain after 4 hours of trying to sleep. Trendy type place for 20 somethings.

Bad enough that I didn't complete my stay...

The exterior and lobby/bar area were fine and the bartender was fantastic. The staff were friendly too. However, the bathroom was disgusting and there was a terrible sulfur smell to the water. The room was "cleaned" fine, but worn beyond belief and gross. When I checked myself out to move to another hotel, I was told the building was under renovation but only half of the rooms were done. I was offered a new room, but already made another reservation in a different hotel. The manager, Danielle was very apologetic and arranged for a refund promptly. I would suggest requesting a renovated room if you plan to stay. The manager did say that they have been at 93% or greater capacity every night since they opened 6 years ago, which explains the grossness and the difficulty in moving along the renovations. However, it would seem worth it to lose the occupancy for a week or two where necessary to complete the renovations. The lost occupancy won't hurt their reputation the way negative customer experiences will.

Alt Philadelphia Airport

This is a very old hotel and is in need of serious work. Although it is quite old and seems to be falling apart in many places, it was clean, the people were great! I would stay here again but hope they are able to upgrade soon.

Trendy Getaway

The hotel overall was great, however I wasn't prepared to pay for parking and the $12 per day fee through me completely off especially since I was not in a downtown area of the city.

Great airport hotel

Had a great night at the Aloft Philadelphia airport. The only thing that I would have like changed is for the bed sheets to be ironed. The staff were very helpful and with the hotel being relatively new all was in good condition. I hope they keep it this way.

Decent, but not as nice as I expected

The hotel is located very close to the airport and thus is a very short shuttle ride, which is convenient. The common areas seem nice enough, and are certainly high style. My room, however, was surprisingly beaten up. The shower needed tile and grout work, and the walls and carpets were stained. This was surprising considering that this hotel is described as one of the newest hotel in the Philadelphia airport area. All in all, I was a bit disappointed by this hotel, particularly given the price.

Modern amenities and killer room layout

Euro-posh and not too expensive, the Aloft chain has imported Euro-style rooms (extremely functional) with a young, hip vibe. They play World Music in the elevators as you descend to the lobby bar...which itself is a magnet for the Young, Hip and Alive set. Makes this old Road Warrior feel 10 years younger! Now THAT'S an amenity not found in most hotels!

Visit the lobby bar for Happy Hour and see what the 'younger generation' of business travellers looks like. Free WiFi is everywhere and rock-solid.

First Time in Philly

It was my first time in Philly. The Aloft is literally 5 minutes from the airport. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel has a contemporary style. They have a very nice bar in the lobby that plays good music. The staff is very friendly and professional.
