Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyJack2014 Best hotel in Cleveland
This is by far the best aloft hotel there is. I am seasoned vet of travel over 120 days, and while the aloft brand doesn't blow me away, this hotel takes it to a 5 star can't miss hotel. The main reason for this has to be the staff. Ben, Jessica and Robert who work the front desk, have to be the best associates I've ever met with Starwood. I stay there quite often and they also make my experience worth while. In terms of a fun and exciting place the bar is an amazing spot. Both Justins that work the bar plan great events (like sushi Wednesdays) and make ever evening a lot of fun. In general all the staff (including refresh crews, etc) make this a top notch hotel.
If your looking for a spot for work, fun (downtown nightlife), or just stopping through; you can't find a better deal for a hotel!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Balloonpopper10 Disappointing
I wanted to like this place, but we had to move three times due to rooms not being finished or intense perfume odors. I'd give it another shot if only b/c of its location.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Salesman33 Nice room, not quite ready for business travelers
The room was sleek and trendy looking and the staff was very polite so I would recommend to friends staying for a weekend in Cleveland; however I would hesitate to stay again for business travel (which I do several times a month). Reasons it doesn’t work for business:
1. WiFi system was hard to log into
2. Parking attendant was rude – Gate was broken and after waiting 5-minutes for him he very bluntly told me to drive to the upstairs gate without a bit of apology or directions
3. Breakfast options were slim and only was size coffee cup (small).
4. I ran out of contact solution and they did not have the option for to purchase some as they were out and there convenience store was not in walking distance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rob549 Nice place to staff for a football game.
Everything we needed was within walking distance. The room was nice but we had to change rooms due to a water leak from a room above ours; 3rd flr. We were moved to the 5th floor and it smelled of sewage. The smell was not over powering but it was still present.

Rated 4 out of 5 by slickmom Nice stay
Overall, stay was good. Location was difficult to find if you're not familiar with the area. Robert at the front desk was awesome!! The music in the lounge/bar area after 10:00 was obnoxiously loud. We went to the bar next door. Might want to consider toning down the music--you're losing business from the crowd that can afford the accommodations.

Definitely NOT enough closet room. It took FOREVER to find the iron (which is nowhere near the closet).
The young girl at the front desk explained that she would be putting me on the quiet, city side of the hotel. I am certain she forgot that there was a train, a bridge and a two streets - at least I wasn't above the nightclub like my fellow travelers!
Food at the adjoining restaurants is tasty and spendy. Definitely stop at Lago for happy hour!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ikerbiker great staff
Staff is super nice. This was our second visit. One problem this time was the noise level of the restaurant /bar next door/down stairs. This place was not associated with the hotel so they had nothing to do with it but may be of concern to those looking to go to bed early and rest in quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JuJuBawanna Staff is EXCELLENT
Great staff; very helpful. Good value. The only negative is the lighting in the bathroom. It wasn't very good for putting on makeup and the fan is annoying. I like to listen to the news while getting ready and I would have had to turn the volume up too much to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buck3391 Excellent Staff
I stayed at the aloft in Cleveland for 5 days while on business. The staff were extremely helpful and concerned when I mentioned a very slight problem. They were ready to change my room for me that very moment. I told them it was not required, but if I had a continuous problem that I would speak to them. While I was away from home it was my granddaughters birthday and she could not understand just how big Lake Erie was. When casual speaking with the staff at the front desk regarding it they offered to take to the rooftop for photos for her. The following day I mentioned it to Bill ( the Manager) who then took me to another rooftop with an unobstructed view. That made my granddaughter soooo happy it made my day and hers. All of your staff should be commended on their professional attitudes and caring for their customers. This has had to be the best experience I have ever had with a hotel. I look forward to when I can return so as to enjoy your great staff and hotel.
Thank you for all that you do, Your the Best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Furkidmom3 Exceeded my expectations
The facility and the staff completely exceeded my expectations. At every turn, staff were there to greet you, ask not only about your stay, but your day! Everyone had smiles, even at the busiest of times in their day. This is my first trip to Cleveland, and I would certainly make this my first choice when booking a room when I go back. If the staff and the facilities of Aloft hotels in other cities come even close to matching the Cleveland location, then I would make them my first choice in those cities. Keep up the great work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KKWaters Consistant Aloft Hotel
You walk in and are greeted by a friendly, bubbly staff that seem like they enjoy what they do.
Overall a good place.
About a $35 cab ride from airport but in close proximity to action downtown.
The sink drain was slow (room 415) but other than that the stay was nice and the room was clean.
Check out Ken Stewarts restaurant in the same complex for a great dinner!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wedd14 Aloft/ Cleveland Downtown Noisy Party Hangout
First Impressions are everything. The Valets were standing around not helping us. There were no luggage carts. I was with a handicap person and was totally ignored. No help getting out of the car or helping with our luggage.
Then we go to check in and our rooms were not ready. So 2 rooms of people were trying to get ready in one room. Also as we were checking in the clerk kept answering the phone even though there were 2 other clerks standing behind the counter.
Very noisy place. I guess if you want to party all night this might be the place for you.
Also one of our party was not given the wedding party discount even though we had quite a few rooms booked at this place.
If I ignore all that I will say our room was nice. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was nice. Great wall TV.

The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly across all aspects of the hotel. I've stayed at multiple locations throughout the Cleveland area and am constantly drawn back to the downtown Aloft.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sarath Good hotel, bad location
Good hotel and staff. Good restaurants nearby. This is better than few other aloft hotels I have stayed, but the location is near a RTA station. Every time a train passes, I felt my whole bed shaking. I am still waiting for my final bill which they have not emailed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ducky25 Room Key
I was given the wrong room number and the room key was for a room already occupied. This could have been a security problem as well as a privacy issue. The problem was rectified quickly, and in all fairness the girl who checked us in had a line out to the doors and she was alone for a while till someone came to help her. Mistakes happen but it left us uneasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebbieJohn Rejuvenating getaway.
My husband and I live maybe 10miles away, and we stayed at your hotel and felt like we were in another city. The atmosphere is very relaxed and fun. Being steps away from the waterfront Rapid station made it convenient to get to sites around town. The breakfast sandwiches made-to-order were delicious and very reasonable cost. The bed was comfortable. The view was fabulous. We could see the river, the lake, watch the trains and the bridges going up for the freighters on the river. WE even enjoyed the sound of the trains at night. Plus the Ohio State Football game was on TV in the room. Thanks for an enjoyable getaway from our very busy life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Darby2 Average compared to other Aloft experiences
Sunday night so almost everything in the area, especially restaurants was closed. Staff not as friendly as at other Alofts I have stayed at over the past few years. Good place to stay as it is close to almost everything but could use improvements in greeting guests and thanking guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drew93940 Great Staff, Facilities, and Room
Three days for a conference and completely enjoyed the room, all the staff attention, and the gym(s). Picked the city view room to lessen the train noise, but I am an early riser anyway.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kari11 Great area, but watch the parking lot
Traveling to Cleveland for business and always stay within the SPG hotel family. I was pleased to see A Loft was new and in a great area of Cleveland. The hotel is nice, a little loud with the trains, but not too bad. My issue was that we asked the customer service rep if the parking lot was free for parking and she replied with " if the parking attendee is gone, yes it is" We awoke to a yellow ticket on our car. I do suggest asking about parking or paying for valet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CANinNYC The perfect weekend getaway
Had to visit Cleveland for work and wanted a hotel with a model vibe and proximity to downtown. This hotel was not only well maintained and clean, but the perfect weekend retreat. The bar staff at Wxyz could have been a little more friendly and engaged, but the front desk staff were welcoming, helpful and energetic. Will definitely stay again when I return to Cleveland.
