“Made our New Years Eve!”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

I was trying to come up with something different for my daughter and I (38yo and 11yo) to do on on New Year's Eve since there is really nothing to do with a preteen on this holiday. We decided to book a night at Aloft for a staycation. The website was easy to use and it is very conveniently located. We used the free valet parking (attendants very nice and quick). It is very trendy and hip. My daughter was immediately impressed with the decor and said she felt like a celebrity. :) The staff there was very helpful and friendly. I accidentally booked the room for the wrong night and we showed up a day early. They immediately changed my reservation with no hassle and were happy to accommodate me anyway. Our room was clean and compact, but nicely decorated as well with a great view. The hotel in in a little office park and there were convenience stores, a Fresh Market, and a couple of restaurants all in walking distance. The lobby area has a bar and a pool table lounge area and we played pool and I had a free champagne toast at midnight. We went for a swim in the pool which was clean. The next morning we checked out quickly and easily. It is one of the best hotel experiences that I've had. I would stay there again on a girlfriends weekend and definitely with my preteen.

We stayed the night with daughter and granddaughter so we could have some family fun in the indoor pool. It was a very enjoyable experience. The only glitch was a 1-hour delay in fulfilling our request for an extra blanket.

This was my first time staying at an Aloft property. The hotel is beautiful. It seems like the brand itself is geared toward being hip.The lobby has a pool table, several lounge areas and a bar section with plasma TVs and a constant stream of muzak (not necessarily a bad thing). Also, what's great about it for me, is that all the properties are non smoking throughout (which is very nice, because even when you request a non-smoking room at other hotels, there's always a chance that someone smoked in it anyway).
We stayed in a double queen room. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom/vanity area kind of reminded me of a Ikea model home.
The one downside about it though, is that because there isn't a door separating the vanity area from the beds, turning the light on to use the bathroom, may disturb someone sleeping. Also, the sliding door for the bathroom/shower doesn't have a lock...so you might want to make sure that people remember to knock.

Room Tip: There's a strip mall with restaurants, retail shops and salons a few steps away from the hotel...

We've stayed here when visiting family in Raleigh. The kids love the pool and we love the the great in house lounge. The rooms are very spiffy and this place fits the bill if you want a great nights stay. A great quick getaway!
