First off, the communication during booking and before check-in was FANTASTIC! I was ready to give it a 5-star review before even checking in. Pros: Location is perfect. Super walkable and scenic. Parking garage is easy and only $10 a day. Mountain view side is great for sunsets. Super clean facility. Funky and fun-looking lobby. Pool area on rooftop is amazing. Many different room types.
Cons: A sink in the hotel hallway is just weird. Heat/AC unit was loud. It had a rattle but I travel with ear plugs because I am not interested in having maintenance in our room or relocating after settling in. Not having a microwave was disappointing since some restaurants nearby are closed for dine-in due to Covid. There was a frig but we couldn’t warm up takeout or leftovers. I didn’t realize the hotel was dog-friendly until a very loud (but not lingering) barking dog startled me. The TV didn’t have the new feature that we just had in a Fairfield Inn where you scan the screen with your phone to make your phone easily serve as TV remote. The TV remote was instead in a plastic bag which just seems odd to have a Fairfield Inn outshine A-Loft with this technology. In summary, a nice hotel but it didn’t seem like a Category 5 Marriott overall. I would stay here again if the price was right though. More
