We chose the Aloft hotel based on price as it seemed very cheap for a four star hotel even on the outskirts of london. Not having stayed in Docklands before I was not expecting much with refards to either the hotel or local transport. We were both pleasantly surprised at how clean and efficient the DLR was and how fabulous the hotel was. We were greeted very warmly on our arrival and were offerered membership with the hotel chain. Having spent most of the day travelling we were eager to eat and the well informed staff on the reception desk were able to provide us with a list of the local restaurants. I would recommend the Carribean restaurant at the other end of Excel to anyone staying in the area. The re-fueling station is a great idea as it means you can get snacks any time of the day or night and we even ate in Fede's twice during our stay. The room itself was absolute luxury and well on a par with other 4 and 5 star hotels in the capital. I only wish I had remembered to bring my swimming trunks as I could not buy any locally. For those who have commented on here about the distance into the city - all I can say is that I would rather spend time on the DLR than the underground. I will definately be using this hotel again especially as we have now discovered it is cheaper for us to fly into London City - Yay no more Gatwick Express
