Glad I tried Aloft
Oct 14, 2014 by: pauli B from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I have been interested in trying the Aloft chain, and this past week had the opportunity. We were flying out of Baltimore in the morning, so spent the night before at Aloft. Very convenient location, offered a package that included parking for free, so we saved money too! The room (2 doubles) was spacious, quiet, good temperature control, bathroom was nice, everything was clean. Staff was friendly and the other guests in the lobby bar were nice and respectful (no issues with anyone when we 2 ladies were having a drink in the lobby bar). The only negative was the shuttle pick up to return from the airport took longer than usual. Likely due to unexpected traffic in the area, but it was annoying (though staff tried to be helpful). I would stay there again, for sure.
Aloft is a different hotel experience

Okay, I should let you know that I thought this was the Aloft by the Casino. It's about 15 minutes from the casino. I talked to locals and they didn't realize there was 2 Alofts. So check to make sure you got the right one. The room is small and strangely shape. You walk in and the sink is on the left then the toilet and shower. There's a closet that is open and limited in space. There are no dresser drawers, just shelves. The room is clean and compact. Just not our cup of tea. It did have a safe that we couldn't open. There were 2 lights out and were fixed immediately upon notice. I could hear activity in the hall and the opening and closing of doors but it wasn't too disruptive. It took me a day to figure how to turn the air on. The is a light type switch by the system that you click on that turns on the thermostat which is located on the other side of the room. What a pain in the neck. What impressed me the most was the honesty of our maid. I dropped my diamond necklace on the floor which is very valuable. When we returned to the room the maid gave it to my husband. The lobby had tea and coffee but we had to request tea bags both mornings. If you are young and like modern stylish rooms this may be for you but this old gal likes the more traditional rooms.
Hip and affordable

This was my first stay at an aloft property. I chose it because of its proximity to the airport and its affordability. Staff were quick to greet with a smile and I was given a $20 credit toward food and drinks (usable at their "wxyz" bar) for no good reason. The food was limited, but decent. The beer selection needed help. My room was clean and well-decorated. The back of the shower was a frosted glass panel that faced the bedroom, so aloft might not be a great choice when traveling with kids. The through-wall A/C unit did not seem to work at first, but I found that a nearby unmarked light switch turned it on and off. My broker picked me up at the airport and I planned to use the hotel's free shuttle the next morning, so I didn't have a rental car. When I tried to order in, the desk informed me that they had no room service. I was too tired to socialize in the bar, but I was forced to get dressed, grab some portable food and run it back to the room. Other than that, it was quite a pleasant stay.

Accommodations and transportation were excellent, friendly and helpful with directions and recommendations for surrounding area. Shuttle was available to take you to restaurants, shopping, etc. within a 3-mile radius. Location is walking distance or a short shuttle ride to Light Rail stop for local travel. And just minutes from BWI.
