Great Price, Nice Hotel, Needs Better Housekeeping

The hotel is extremely nice and you can book it for a great value. The only complaint I have is that housekeeping does not always clean the rooms well.

Eat at Hugo's in the Montrose Area of Houston. They have authentic mexican food, great drinks, and a wonderful staff. It is a little expensive though.

Awesome Adventure with my daughter

My daughter and I had to come into Houston to visit the French Consulate. We were close to the embassy, shops and resturants. The hotel was perfect. My daughter needed to print some papers that she had overlooked and with our stay we had full use of the business part in the hotel. They had computers, printer, fax and internet. The hotel's climate was awesome along with the recepetionist, greeter, and parking attendant. As an added bonus, the shuttle will transport you within 3 miles. I would highly recommend this hotel as well as other Aloft hotels.

Aloft

I enjoyed my stay at Aloft it is 1 blk from Galleria, walking distance. The staff was nice and helpful, my room clean and the hotel had a chic modern feel to it, different from other places. The free Internet and fairly inexpensive self parking (12.00 a day and I had two vehicles) was well worth they stay!

Birthday get away

Room was not ready at arrival. Aloft really needs to start working on customer service and making the client feel welcomed. This is not the only location that employees demonstrated a disturbance when requesting information. It may be time for us to look for an alternative hotel chain.

It was wonderful. The staff was there 24/7 ready when and if we needed them, a very cozy hotel, I don't recommend for older crowds, it has a party atmosphere.

A Loft houston

The people were very nice. The room was nothing special. They provided a body wash in a large container in the shower and I do not use that, however they provided no soap to wash with. I have become used to hotels with a restaurant and this fell way short in that category. If another occasion came up and I had choices besides an A Loft i would probably pick the other choices
