Rated 3 out of 5 by CatalinaT This hotel is very modern
The design of the hotel is very modern. We really enjoy it. The A/C, however, is very loud. We could not sleep well. The reception desk counter seems need an update. It looks worn out. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay. We also love the fact that there is a huge shopping mall(within walking distance).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Traveleristired STRANGE SMELL
The room had a strange smell.
We were not told that we could not park and fly unless we booked directly with the hotel. We had to drive to the airport in the early morning because we were not allowed to stay parked at the hotel even though we would have paid for stay and fly. Not enough information and no attempt was made to help us out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rick808 Posting Make A Green Choice Credit
The hotel is located next to a Outdoor Shopping Mall with decent restaurants located in them. The hotel staff is very nice and professional. It would be nice to see the posting of the Make A Green Choice Points to my SPG Account much quicker. It usually takes 2-3 weeks for this posting to occur. All other Starwood Hotels I stay in post with 48 to 72 hours after I check out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mickey For the Male Traveler under 40
The aloft is a very neat and clean, non-traditional hotel that has the basics for a business traveler. It lacks a touch of luxury, which is likely not important to many male travelers. The lumpy pillows were a surprise for a hotel that appeared not to be the old. The simplistic styiling provided just the basics and less than more traditional hotels for the same price.

The service people had big smiles and were very helpful when the printer jammed while we were printing out our boarding passes. They fixed it immediately and were friendly.
I would suggest that another chair in the room would be helpful. Also, don't like the dark gray walls - seemed depressing. Do like the shelves across from the sink in the bathroom. It made storage very organized. Also like the long couch-type across from the beds for putting suitcases on. We had friends over and sat in the lobby for several hours. We ordered cokes in a can and the bar gentleman came over and brought glasses with ice in them. VERY NICE! The location is great for closeness to the airport and the shuttle service is great! We also enjoyed being so near restaurants. There are many pluses about this hotel. Just wish the rooms were brighter and lighter in color and better lighting in the bathroom. The large shower head and shower itself were nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 Sorry, can't help
Stayed here for one night before an early trip back home. The girl who checked us in was exceptional. But we reserved a king and were told there were no kings left... We get upstairs and I just got a not so clean feel from the room. My 15 month old was walking around the room after a long day in the car and her socks were filthy from the carpet and bathroom. Shower didn't seem too clean and very annoyingly the toilet seat wouldn't stay up long enough to pee. I had to simultaneously hold it up and pee. Worst though at checkout, I was charged the wrong rate compared to what I had booked the room at. I pointed this out to the person at the desk and basically was told "sorry, can't help..." When I called the hotel when I got back home an extremely competent person helped and fixed it but why did I need to go through the hassle. The location is great but there are like ten other hotels in the same area that I can go to next time...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg 1st time but definitely not the last...
Front desk staff was awesome! The only suggestion I would make would to be to explain that the shuttle was a Sheraton / Hampton / Aloft combined shuttle and yellow in color. 1st time users may not realize this. I frequently stop in Portland on my way to Hawaii and will ALWAYS stay at Aloft from now on and when available, stay at Aloft properties when I can.

A young, hip and lively staff keeps this place hopping. Prices were reasonable. Room was well laid out, with the toilet/shower separated from the vanity area. AC worked fine. Would have liked a robe provided. Foodstuffs available were adequate and of good quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mkp1 Good location but OK property.
"Breakfast Included" in your advertise is really misleading. It should be advertise more like $6 credit for breakfast included, which can barely buy you a bowl of cereal and milk.
Bed mattresses are in need of replacement. My back was hurting badly after waking up for almost a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lmc59 Upscale and lively
We stay at Aloft for its ambiance which is upscale and lively. Our favorite property is Aloft, Bangkok.
At Portland Airport, the staff is friendly, the lounge area is very nice. The outdoor seating area is a good place to sit and visit with friends.
I do wish that there was a continental breakfast choice included in the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eng2x This Hotel is comparable to a boutique hotel
This hotel is comparable to a boutique or a 3 1/2 star hotel. The design is contemporary and the room is clean. The only issue we have are the staff's attentiveness to the guest's needs. We did not exactly get what we requested even though we were told that our request was noted. Other than the less exemplary customer service, the hotel was good overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by socaltravel I will look for Alofts wherever I go!
We like Starwood properties and were excited to try an Aloft. It was terrific and I will try to find them wherever I go. The vibe is hip and fun without being pretentious. Pool table in lobby. Nice pool & fitness room. Delicious, fresh, hot breakfast sandwiches. It had everything we needed.Also conveniently near stores (Target)/restaurants/yogurt shop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by elhans noise problem
during the whole night there was loud noise from some kind of pump or ventilation system, starting every 10-15 minutes for a couple of seconds, really disrupting my sleep
the noise source seems to be on the corridor, and not in the room or another room above/left/right
everything else would be great, but that was a serious problem (I had room 223)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Don99 This hotel was great
The only thing that I would have liked that the hotel didn't have was a hot tub. The pool was very good though and we were the only people there. Our room was very nicely appointed with everything that we needed. We were greeted by very friendly staff during check in and the staff was most helpful in assisting us with directions during our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by evge green choice points missing
I was staying in this hotel for 3 nights and declined room cleaning for 2 days in hope to receive 500 green choice pts (250 for each day of declined). I received 2 slips from the cleaning lady for this and submit both to the reception desk. One month later, I still do not have those promised points. I received only 250 instead of 500.

Came up from Central Oregon to attend the Women's Expo. Loved being a short walk from the train. It was a great location for our many adventures. We were concerned about the airport location but we never heard a plane or train. Also, we enjoyed the live music on both Friday and Saturday night. The hotel was clean, well supplied and FUN!

I really like the casual yet refined ambiance at ALOFT. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable and have some very fun touches......the alarm clocks are very cool ! The hotel has plenty of getaway spots to sit and relax. The bar is fantastic and a comfortable place to spend some time. I enjoyed my visit very much.

Rated 3 out of 5 Close to the AIRPORT
The hotel is very close to the airport and has many stores in walking distance. Unfortunately, during my visit the internet was down - not good. The bar while it was open at 11pm PT, the wine options were limited. The bar was out of several items listed on the wine list... not good.
For a one night visit - the hotel is a good option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bo88 MINIMUM NIGHTS REQUIRED
I have stayed at this hotel for the last 4+ years on a weekly basis (since they opened). They have recently implimented a 2 night minimum during thier busy times. This does not work well with my schedule and may force me to stay elsewhere. Very disappointing. If two nights isn't a problem for your travels I would recommend this hotel.

The location was very convenient for heading downtown and the PDX airport. The staff was great and very helpful and all for 129.00 a night. I have stayed in many hotels in my travels and this was one of the best for the price i have stayed at.

I spent one night at this property and overall was pleased. The staff is professional and friendly and the entire property was clean. As for the room I found the pillows to be a bit too soft for me and experienced airport noise (to be expected at an airport hotel). But otherwise this is a solid option and I will plan to return.

Comfort and accessability to resturants and shopping outstanding. Staff very helpful. Plus the view! I had a great room with window so see Mt. Hood. Beautiful. Although at the airport, I seldom heard a plane unless sitting at the window to watch them land. That was pretty cool too.

I stayed one night with my Mom on a leisure trip to Portland. The beds were very comfortable and the room clean and modern. The lounge had live music and decent food. We were pleasantly surprised to be able to just stay at the hotel after a full day of shopping and had all our needs met. Highly recommend and will visit again.

I love the relaxed feel you get when you stay with aLott. I came to visit my daughter and grandkids and picked this hotel becuase the ammenities are good for adults as wells as children. My daughter and I were able to relax by the pool table with a drink while the kids played pool. The music in the evening was a great bonus.

Terrific overnight as part of the "Portlandia" package: Two signature cocktails, souvenir glasses, the Season One and Two "Portlandia" DVDs, the "Revel in Portland" book plus the usual terrific aloft Cascade Station room and staff at an excellent price. "Put a bird on it" and you have all of the ingredients of a great stay.

With the choices near the Portland airport Aloft is an outstanding value and location. For business the convenience factor makes it my pick when I need to be able to pack and go with a tight schedule. Getting into Portland and back is easy given the location near the freeway system nearby.

Only one wash cloth I the room upon checkin. My wife tried to use the lotion provided and found it to be empty. Crib provided was very difficult to use for a baby that wakes up couple hours. The was to deep and was set up for a toddler. Carpet padding in the halls was nice but it made it difficult to roll luggage.

THis was my first experience staying with Aloft and my expectations were certainly exceeeded. Clean comfortable room and very spaciaous for its actual dimensions. My only suggestion is that it would have been nice to have a hot breakfast availible as the team that I brought into town ended up eating at IHOP.
