Rated 4 out of 5 by WB01 Great Hotel
Great hotel, great staff. Nice ambiente. Very modern.
Close to many restaurants and entertainment.
I have only tow suggestions to for improvement:
1. There should be a shuttle to and from the airport - or you pay about $20.- each way.
2. And Breakfast, in my opinion at these room rates should be included. At least a coffee. It is $4.00 for a cappuccino. No Starbucks close by.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kay4 3 guests for wedding weekend
We rented 4 rooms for 7 people for a total of 8 nights for a wedding weekend. When one our party arrived late (confirmed late arrival) their room had been given away. This couple had specific reasons for renting the room given away, which included a balony. They went to another hotel. We had planned for months for the family to be in the same hotel since we all live very far apart.
My room had light bulb out over the bed. (The one light switch on only one side of bed to turn on lights over bed was irritating.) The bathroom toilet/shower area had no door or usable door. The toilet seat was loose so that you felt like it might come off when used! There was no comfortable chair or sofa, only a bench/desk chair to sit on. The lobby was so LOUD in the evening, conversation was impossible.Hang up clothes space in a room with a king bed was not big enough. The snack bar was outrageous in price for what was offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeanFPbS Great Stay!
Went to this hotel for the weekend, I was there for a wedding. All of the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating from the front desk, housekeeping, and the bar staff. Housekeepers were very polite and always acknowledged us and asked how everything was, the bartender was great and Conley at the front desk was awesome as well. Thanks Aloft, hope to see you again!

I could not wait to leave the hotel. From the moment I arrived, there was extremely loud music blaring in all the public areas of the hotel. It NEVER stopped. It was impossible to sleep at night, as young partygoing guests roamed the halls until 3 a.m. The front desk attendant that registered me on arrival and the attendant that handled the checkout were very kind.

Rated 3 out of 5 by coreybelle everything was good except bed.
My bed had hair in it..and a stain underneath the comforter..pretty gross that housekeeping didnt change or clean bedding. There is no way they could not have seen stain..and they obviously decided to ignore it amd make bed anyways...gross!

Rated 4 out of 5 Great for Homewood
A well organized, very modern hotel.
The wine is a bit over priced for the selection.
The rooms are very modern and the beds are comfortable.
However, just go downstairs and get coffee LOL the coffee in the room is just like anywhere else, decent brew but no condiments available to make it tasty
I'd stay here again, and probably will.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 12345678 Very disappointed !!!
Could not get into the 3rd floor ice "room" - even after another customer tried their room key - neither worked - and the pillows are TERRIBLE - flat and hard - and I couldn't find anyone to check me out the next morning !!! $5 for a very small bag of jellybeans - really ??? Gone down hill big time since I was last there !!! :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mckey Not up to par with other SPG properties I have stayed at
More of a contemporary motel feel than a hotel. In room AC unit manually operated but very loud. Carpet dirty, grout in bathroom clearly stained and dirty. Trendy decor, but not user friendly.
Allows pets, which is great if you have them, bad if you don't and a dog starts barking outside your door at 6:30 am!

Rated 3 out of 5 by dss114 Overall Stay
My stay was average and not quite what I expected. I could hear everything going on in the hallway, the sheet didn't fit and kept popping off during the night.
Maybe ok for 1 night but not made for multiple nights.

After driving hundreds of miles, I settled in at the Aloft Birmingham. It is easy to access from the Interstate and has onsite parking. Friendly staff, great design. Bar and restaurant inside the building. Will stay here anytime I am near Birmingham.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SAAAM Overnight business stay
The hotel is modern, trendy, clean and comfortable. The staff go out of their way to be sure you enjoy your stay. The only suggestion I would make is that there be a comfortable chair to read or watch TV in the room. I had a reasonably priced breakfast with healhthy choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christine Staff was amazing!
The ONLY negative comment I could make was the cleanliness of the Hotel. The outside sitting area was no cleaned the whole time I was there and the gueestroom hallways looked liked they had not been touched in weeks.
Besides that everything else was great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by campbti A good hotel at a good price
The Aloft has become the new place to stay for many of my collegues. The area is convienient to food and drinks. The free wifi is crucial. Beds are comfortable and shades keep out the city lights. The Michaels next door was excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WeddingGoer Room smelled
When we first got into the room it smelled of vomit near the bathroom. We asked for some type of air freshener from the front desk and they sent house keeping right away. That took care of the smell.

This hotel had no hot water when I tried to shower, even after being told it would be "fixed" in 10 min.
Bed was hard and not enough pillows.
VERY DISAPOINTING for a Starwood property.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PattiB Great location-Very average facility
COULD be a good hotel. Service was just not quite what we expected. Beds and linens are not up to par with today's standards. Public areas such as elevators not as clean as expected.

Great location but he hotel is noisey. The walls are paper thin, the heater is like a jet engine and you can hear everything on the street.
Bed is uncomfortable.
