I recently stayed at this establishment which took me back to my college days minus the annoying roommate. No closet or dresser for two weeks worth of business clothes. Clean unless one anticipates having their sheets changed or bathroom area cleaned. I did finally leave a note to have my sheets changed which they were but I was left with... More

While it is a great location, if you plan to work at all then don't plan on having any housekeeping. Wifi is very spotty! Not impressed with this brand, unfortunately. Only positive, they have coffee 24/7. Management has ZERO interest in your opinion. issues or comfort. I will NOT return and would not encourage anyone even if the price point... More

Let me say up front that this hotel is not for everyone. I thought this hotel would be similar to a Courtyard or Hampton Inn, but it isn't really. It has a very contemporary, almost European (think IKEA) feel, and is clearly designed to attract millennials. My 15-year-old son LOVED staying here. There are more outlets for electronic devices than... More

Aloft is Sheraton's trendy, lower-end chain. The hotel is in a good location, right near a number of restaurants in Homewood. I really like being able to walk to dinner/coffee shop, which in suburban Birmingham/Alabama is not easy to find. The rooms are clean, modern, not fancy, but comfortable. I like the Bliss products in the room.

Location is in great proximity to downtown Birmingham, Five Points, and easy access to Highway 280. The location was a great plus! Nice urban décor. Michael's restaurant attached to the hotel was good. There are many other restaurants within walking distance. Overall, very pleased.

No real complaints, except that the night we stayed there a storm had taken out all electronics and telephone. It's a basic place, decorated in a modern, even industrial, style. Bed was more like one you would find in a European hotel--thinner than American mattresses and firm.

I stay here often and for the most part am very happy. The hotel has been undergoing renovations and the rooms are much fresher. There is new bedding, furniture, and wallpaper in the rooms.

Hotel totally booked and the hvac system cannot cool my room. Front desk clerk offered to move me to an adjacent room. It was just as warm. The hvac design is flawed. Be aware during summer months. At least they agreed to charge me a full rate for staying in this 85 degree room.

This place is modern industrial chic and very comfortable all at the same time. It has a nice little grab and go cafe in the lobby, but proximal to some excellent bars and restaurants. It's the perfect spot for a couples weekend away.
