Rated 4 out of 5 by andyrenae A Meta-Escape
I was relieved to learn that there was an aloft near the portland airport when i was looking for a place to stay during a 'vacation'/out of town family wedding. i've stayed in other cities and, unlike other large chains, have found that i can count on the name to equal a good stay in a clean room with good service.
after a week of travel (red eye to boston from los angeles on monday night, two different hotels on tuesday and wednesday with a 6am departure in est to portland), i needed to make use of every amenity. the room is set up with quality coffee and tea. the ambience is minimalist and clean, if a bit neon. the hotel is quiet and the service is great. blackout blinds are a HUGE plus when your internal clock is off. and you truly can't hear the airport, just a couple miles away (if that).
courteous desk service. a spectacular bar tender who kept my water full, in addition to my drinks. we talked bourbon and he let me try a few new acquisitions - really, really good stuff. you can count on this staff to stock a unique bar with quality local labels you might not know.
a huge family wedding isn't exactly vacation, but i could look forward to coming 'home' at the end of the night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frank62 Great Staff/Lousy Gold Member Benefits
Airport Shuttle & Staff are excellent and the room is a good value but park and fly which used to be free now costs and you cannot use points. Gold members used to get free lattes and now must pay for a latte. In fact, the only gold member benefit I received was the staff said thank you for being a gold member...And staff might delay cleaning rooms next to those who are still sleeping because of a later flight and arrival.

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.

Much more contemporary than the average hotel. Great style with relaxed atmosphere. Kid and dog friendly is a plus. Great location just outside of Portland with easy access to highways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MikeOH Good Experience
I have stayed here may times and would recommend the hotel to anyone.My one complaint is that they often only have one bartender working who has to make and serve food as well so they are often no where to be found. This happened to me on Friday night at 8:00 although its not the first time it has happened. There is simply no way one person can do everything if there are more than 3 people in the bar at one time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by man2013 nice and trendy!
The place is nice and kinda new. It has beautiful view and close to shopping centers. Only one thing is the problem, wi-fi doesn't work inside the room. And exhaust in the bathroom is not working too and one night light also is the same thing. Plus when I withdraw cash in atm inside the hotel it didn't gave me the right amount I tried to withdraw and asked the help of front desk they're not much of help anyways.

We gifted a wedding night to dear friends, I caleld Aloft and asked that they give special attention to the Raney's as we are SPG Preferred as well as Westin owners in Maui. We just found out they did an amazing job, giving this young couple snacks, etc. and most importantly meal vouchers which on this low budget (why we did the room as a gift) were literally GOLD. Thank you so very much bottom of my heart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Capricorn72 Good hotel in a good place
This hotel, along with the other Aloft hotels, offers a comfortable, clean and up-beat base for a business traveler on the go and budget.
The crew at Aloft are friendly and personable. Which makes a difference when you are dealing with so many people as a traveling salesperson.
I do hope in the near future this hotel adds the Smart Check-in Program. It's a nice feature for those of us on the go often.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laimis Comfortable and all around excellent hotel
The biggest plus of this hotel was the comfort of rooms - the bed, TV, shower, layout, all excellent. To top that off, it has a spacious and well stocked gym (a rarity in the hotels I stay) where couple of us were able to get our workouts in without feeling crowded. I did not use the pool, but it looked clean and well tended to.
The next time I am in Portland I will check this hotel first.

I stay at least 4 times a year at the Loft and I have to say that I love it. It is very easy to get to the airport and all you need is close by. What I like the most is that the staffs are great! Friendly, resonding, helping - all you need! :-) Thanks a lot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Debbie41 Convenience was remarkable
This hotel was situated in an area that worked really well. You don't have to drive around a city you're not familiar with to enjoy Portland. The Max is within walking distance and will take you everywhere!

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.

This hotel has the perfect location for shopping, restaurants and walking and cycling. Beautiful setting with lots of green space, trees and grassy areas. A bonus if you are travelling with a pet. Reception staff were great, especially Crystal and Christian who were extremely helpful.

Nicely stylized hotel with all the required amenities, but none of the annoying other bits. Cool décor, easy access, nice room layout, great view of Mt. Hood. Wi-Fi is annoyingly intermittent, but is complimentary.

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.

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.

I was not sure what to expect, but i liked it. I liked the design and lay out of the room. It was close to the airport, but I slept well having them fly overhead. I did not hear my neighbors very quite and peaceful.

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.
