We had trouble adjusting to so many dogs. I guess if it was dog -friendly one should expect a lot of dogs - maybe we should avoid these in the future. It comes across as poorly built rather than retro.

The staff was very accommodating with helping me get an early check-in. The location is very convenient and the beds are comfortable. The lighting in the rooms, especially the bathroom, is way too dim. The door to my room was a challenge to open. There was something wrong with the bottom lock and sometimes I thought I was going to be trapped. The replacement of coffee and other supplies was lacking - didn't have creamer left the second day and had one packet of each type of sugar. Only had one bar of soap for both the sink and shower.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
While this hotel is in a great location with walking access to pretty much everything you would want, the hotel itself was sadly lacking. It had a 'worn' overall feeling to it. The carpets seemed old and worn. It almost had the feel of an old dormitory. We laughed at the showers lack of output and dubbed it the 'faux shower'. (The hotel did give us a credit for that - it was so bad my wife couldn't even rinse her hair). The complimentary breakfast was the bare minimum. To sum it up; If this were a hostel in Europe, I would say it was a pretty good one. But for a 'premium' hotel located in a good area, again, it was sadly lacking. Not terrible-but certainly not great. I would say 5 out of 10 stars.

Nice place to stay (and pet friendly!)
Everything appeared clean, however the hotel used an especially strong fragrance in the lobby. It was not UNPLEASANT, just STRONG. I am sensitive to smells, and would have preferred they tone it down a notch. The staff were wonderful.

Maintenance in rooms has been lacking....
Rooms needs attention. things are falling apart. wall paper, shower seal, the electrical outlets to name a few. It's clear that either cheap building components were used or maintenance has been neglected. This is something you'd see in a Motel 6 at $70/nt not in a $200+/night Aloft. I have noticed this on prior stays at this same Aloft as well. Otherwise great place, great parking, location, staff, lobby....Just needs room maintenance.
