We just got back from another wonderful stay at the Aloft! We arrived to a warm welcome and check in was a breeze. The bar area in the lobby was busy with people playing pool, enjoying the music on the patio and just relaxing. It was such a fun atmosphere. We had to head back down after dropping off our luggage in the room.

The room was spacious and I absolutely love the huge windows. They offered such a breathtaking view of South Bend. We could even see Notre Dame's dome.

And the staff is truly amazing. I can't say enough positive things about all the staff we encountered. They really made our visit extra special. Whenever we needed anything...a restaurant recommendation or more towels, Alvin was there to make sure it was taken care of quickly and with a smile. Kim cooked up a wonderful breakfast - try the chorizo burrito. You won't be disappointed!

I can't wait for our next trip to South Bend just so I can stay here again! Thanks Alvin and Kim for a great experience!

Room Tip: Choose a corner room. The views are incredible.

Aloft is in the tallest “tower” in South Bend that had fallen on hard times. In 2017 they completed their renovation and created a funky-industrial style hotel. The rooms are brightly colored; the hallways have exposed pipes, wires and ducts. The lobby is bright, active and vibrant.

The lobby is somewhat smallish yet they crammed the front desk, a game area, a bar, a seating area, and a restaurant into it. Every time I went through, the lobby it was busy - people relaxing at the bar, families playing games in the gaming area, guests just sitting a reading. Most lobbies are dead, but not this one.

The rooms have wall-to-wall windows. The beds are comfortable and the entertainment system is good. Wifi is also good. The corner rooms are especially fun as they offer expansive views of the pleasant community of South Bend. The only downside of the rooms, and it’s a huge downside, is that you can hear every single word of the people next door. The walls must be made out of cardboard – I’ve never been in a hotel with worse sound insulation. Bring earplugs and white-noise machine.

The food at the restaurant is good – not gourmet, but good. The menu selection isn’t too broad, but what they’ve got is satisfying. The restaurant seating is very limited and since its crammed in the lobby, felt more like eating at the airport rather than at a relaxing restaurant. Otherwise the staff was friendly and efficient.

The hotel is clearly still in the midst of renovations, and the elevator service is truly awful. But, to their credit, you wouldn’t know the hotel is under reconstruction unless you take the stairs out of frustration.

The hotel was a pleasure to stay in, and is centrally located to a variety of good restaurants. If you’re planning to be in South Bend, this is a good choice.

Room Tip: The corner rooms have great views!

Converted Holiday Inn is now a really nice Aloft in downtown South Bend. Staff has been tremendous, responsive and accommodating. Ongoing work on the property, with one elevator down. This makes access to rooms sometimes delayed.

Staff immediately helped w noisy neighbor at night and moved our room. That was great! This place will continue to get better.
