This place is not worth the rate. The breakfast bar had cereal with no milk, the bar is closed, the rooftop had furniture that was worn down, the elevator doors were not clean, and the first room they gave me had a window with a brick wall in front of it. Will definitely not stay there again.

I didn’t like that you had to pay for parking or should be free with the hotel.

Great staff. Thought I booked a different location that was close to things to do. Didn’t realize there was more than one Aloft in the area. But this was cool and relaxing.

Awesomely located, big and comfy rooms. You need to park outside the building but it’s just across the street.

Liked that you could walk or take the shuttle to Minutemaid Park. Didn’t like that there isn’t a room with a bathtub.

Location in downtown is great, close to restaurants, although due to the dates we booked not many were open, but that shouldn’t be an issue for most. Floor plans are unique and really feel like a furnished apartment: comfy and familiar.

The room was ok but the facilities were terrible - reception area was dirty and all kinds of people coming in and out (not guests) homeless outside and by the entrance doors - too pricy to have this kind of environment

We loved the rooftop pool and views of downtown! Close to many restaurants and nightlife scene,

Nice to stay and get awauy foem everyone’s bsbbshsjsjsjsjjsjajs

The rooms were spacious & very clean. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The complimentary bottle of water was a nice touch.

Great local. Great service. Clean. Everyone was very accommodating.

Very nice in the heartbeat of Houston. Very good walking area.

Very nice hotel close to rail, bars, shopping, restaurants, and other intertainment.

Conveniently located to restaurants, parks, and the Houston Astros ball park. The rooftop pool was amazing and comfortable. The rooms were clean, the front desk staff was quick, helpful and friendly.

I don’t have anything else to say but the hotel and staff exceeded my expectations.

I love Aloft hotels and this one did not disappoint. The front desk clerk was super friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the rooftop lounge/pool area. After our event was over, we stopped back by the hotel for a few drinks and then headed out to Main Street for the rest of the night. The hotel was clean and the bedding very comfortable. I wanted to take the pillows home with me. :) I would definitely stay here again.

Check-in was easy, room was very comfortable and clean, and overall staff was attentive and helpful. Roof top experience not so amazing - bar was open but bartender was not attentive. Downstairs bar (Aldo was my bartender) was a fabulous experience - good drinks, good prices and great advice on places to go and things to see during my stay. Breakfast bar was subpar - its a little pricey and not gourmet at all. The rooms don't have the best views. My room was on the Walker Street side and I was staring at a parking garage. There is construction taking place on the Fannin side directly across from the hotel (my stay was from Fri-Sun so I didn't experience any inconvenience from the construction). Overall experience was good and I would definitely stay here again.
