Felt like a college dorm roomPosted Feb 18, 2014
Nothing too wrong with stay but furnishings were cheap and there was a terrible draft (which stunk considering it was cold outside). Facilities could have been cleaner as pool area was a mess and room carpet had lots of stains.

Decent valuePosted Jan 2, 2014
Pros: Amenties- pool, billiards, nice bar
Cons: Our room was out of wifi range. Aloft told us that we had to contact the wifi service, which is subcontracted. Aloft should have handled it.
Location: Great location, right off hwy exit. Walk around Lexington green. Scenic driving all around Lincoln, Sudbury, Walden pond etc.
One night stay with family. Front lobby is very inviting. You come in and hear lounge music.

Modest, but acceptable accommodations.Posted Dec 28, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff, reasonable rates, comfy beds.
Cons: Bedside lamps would be helpful for those of us who like to read in bed. Desk lamp didn't work. Music in lobby too loud.
I have stayed here on two occasions because of its convenience to Concord and Lexington and the modest workout room and pool that make daily exercise possible.

Fun to be in Europe when you're in the StatesPosted Dec 15, 2013
Most of the U.S. hotels we stay in are quite good, and they fit a strict pattern, it seems. You get what you expect, and you're happy! Aloft was a pleasant change; the breakfast service was great, it's what we'd experienced in Europe. The room set-up, height of ceilings, shower facilities were different, too. All told, after a grueling trip, a little change in pattern was welcome and welcoming. Only 'gripe' was that the well-used central area/lobby was really tired looking; worn chairs seemed as if they had come from your old Uncle Chet's place. But a very good experience overall!

Young vibe, cheap feelPosted Dec 10, 2013
Pros: Nice soap with essential oils.
Cons: Heat. Mattress is easily skewed off frame, and I'm only 140 lbs.
Location: This is near Minuteman park in Lexington near Rt. 95 exit. About 8 minutes to Concord w sitdown restaurants. 5 minutes to nearest Dunkin Donuts.
I chose this hotel based on recommendation of a local relative who heard good things but had never seen the hotel. It was ok, but I was a bit cold and couldn't adjust the heater. If you like Ikea dorm-room decor with contemporary music in elevators and lobby you'll be pleased, but it's not my style. Adult daughters thought it was cool. $5 egg sandwiches in lobby fast, ok quality.

Handy hotel for business tripPosted Dec 9, 2013
I really liked this hotel for the price. The room was trendy and comfy, but stark. It is missing a comfortable chair and no drawers or bureau, so you have to live out of an unpacked suitcase for the length of your stay. There are no restaurant facilities, but bar food and a convenience food station. Best part of this place, neat, clean and quiet. Three of my favorite things.

Fun hotel, but far from the action.Posted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: Cool room lay-out, good view. Nice staff.
Cons: A restaurant and a bar that stays open later for those of us from different time zones.
Location: Historic walk: Fiske Hill Loop, Battle Trail. Lexington is very cute. Lots of woods, so get back before dark if you're afraid of vampires.
The hotel itself was really fun with modern decor and a very nice staff. The bartenders were all very nice, too. The room was small but the lay-out made it feel comfortable rather than cramped, and the bed was super comfortable. The only thing is that it is very far from any city (17 miles from Boston) and getting a cab ride into the city was $85. You can catch the bus and then the Red Line for cheap, but make sure you know where you're going (we made that mistake). Lexington itself closes rather early, so if you're from California like we are, then you're going to find yourself wide awake with nothing to do (and the bar closes at 11pm, which floored me!). So all-in-all I would recommend this hotel, but its location was much to be desired.

Pros: It was a convenient location, the room was comfortable and the view outside our windows was spectacular, and front desk staff very friendly & helpful.
Cons: It would be nice to have a place to put our clothing, I.e., a dresser with drawers. The music in the elevators and in the lobby was loud and abrasive.

My favorite roomPosted Nov 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
My husband and I took much needed vacation in over a year. We travelled across the US with our destination Boston. We really liked the Aloft hotel, very different from other places we have stayed. The hotel was very comfortable and I think my most favorite place that we stayed the whole vacation. The best rates were through Hotels.com we ended up staying an extra night. The web site made it easy to reserve the extra night! A nice play to stay!
