Tries to be too cool

Posted Mar 2, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: No parking
Ok but ultimately vanilla, no ice machines on floor sucks. Housekeeping slow and absent minded. Staff too cool with each other overlooking guests.

Weekend vacation

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: The floor in the elevators was cool, that's about it.
Cons: I'd suggest bulldozing the entire thing down and starting over with a different hotel.
Location: Close to the Guthrie.
The bed was uncomfortable, the lights in the rooms all turn on at the same time-- so if you try to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, the lights in the entire room have to be turned on-- pillows were uncomfortable, hallways were dirty, bathroom "sliding door" did not shut all the way-- providing zero privacy for the person using the toilet. Rooms were small and over priced. Lobby was dirty and loud, staff was unprofessionally dressed. Absolutely the worst hotel we have ever stayed at downtown Minneapolis. We checked out an entire day early and booked a different hotel. Will never stay here again, would not even recommend to an enemy.

Great downtown hotel near the action

Posted Feb 17, 2015
We did a Valentines Day stay for one night at Aloft and found it to be a pleasing experience. The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating, and we used the shuttle service to get to our theater engagement in the evening. Yes, the lights in the rooms are annoyingly all on or all off, it seems, but this was a small detail compared to the overall ambiance of this euro-type hotel in the middle of the historic mill district of Minneapolis. I would stay there again....

A Gem

Posted Feb 11, 2015
The hotel is a little gem. It is young and vibrant. A DJ performed in the lobby/bar area until 2 am. Parking is available in the street, or a private locked garage next door for a little more. The shower had a translucent panel into the bedroom. This could be uncomfortable if you were staying there with your Mom.

Cons: Nothing.
Location: You can go anywhere downtown and it is right there.
I had a wonderful time. The staff was amazing and the lobby is so much fun. They had a DJ which was great and just friendly environment.

Shuttle and free parking

Posted Dec 30, 2014
Asked for a taxi, but the staff said they had a shuttle for free! Fantastic. We scored free parking,but even if we hadn't the lot close to the hotel is cheaper than most others downtown. Definitely would stay here again!

Great location in Mpls.

Nice hotel. Pleasant staff. Room was on the small side, but space was utilized well. Very comfortable. We loved being able to bring our dog. Nice hot tub and pool area. We will be back!
