This hotel is right in the center of the city, and in walking distance to many great restaurants. The hotel is very, very pet friendly. We brought our 2 pups, and we saw many other dogs in the lobby. The dogs stayed for free. Staff was attentive, friendly and always smiling. Hotel was exceptionally clean for being so pet friendly. Parking was only $9/day which is very reasonable for a city hotel. The hotel is modern and there was live music in the evening in the lobby. We were highly impressed and would definitely stay again.

Location and parking was convenient. Staff was very friendly. We loved the view and the concept of having a dog to adopt in the lobby! A successful program for the hotel.

The mattress was extremely uncomfortable to sleep in, especially for the price of the room.

Liked the atmosphere of the hotel but the comfort of the bed would keep me away.

To be fair, the hotel was clean and staff accommodating. However, and I love dogs, it sort of felt like visiting a kennel. The room had nasty stains on the carpet near the entry door, dogs were barking, fighting, jumping up on seating, and generally everywhere.

Also, you can hear every sound of the neighboring unit, from conversations to opening and closing the shades.

The location is great, and the rooftop deck area is cool. It’s just that when paying for an upper end hotel, the expectation is higher than what we experienced. We won’t go back, leaving this place to the dogs.

I can understand why you felt your expectations were not met. I will use your feedback to make improvements so that we can offer a better experience to all our guests.
Thank you also for the kind comments about staff service and hotel cleanliness. I will share those with the staff on your behalf.

We have stayed at this aloft in the past and have always had great stays. Visited with our family this time and two of us who slept in one of the beds woke up with several bug bites. Asked staff to turn room. When we returned later that evening, room was cleaned but new sheets and comforter had small blood stains on them. Asked staff to have new set of sheets and covers which staff promptly brought up to room. Other issue was pocket door for bathroom did not close. As always the staff were always friendly and responsive. Location is always second to none being right in the center of downtown. Keep in mind that this is a dog friendly hotel complete with small dog walk next to the pool. So don't be surprised by the random barking dog in the halls or lobby every now and then. Not our best stay but hoping this was a one off.
