Rated 5 out of 5 by fildefer98 Very impressed
The look is very contemporary, not too modern yet practical. I love the layout of the room. The location is ideal also. Many shops (best Buy, Ross) and restaurants (Red Robin, Buffalo Wild Wings, IHOP) are within walking distance from the hotel. My next trip is in 6 weeks; I will definitely stay here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TourPro They make everything sooo easy
This is a great limited service hotel. Fun location, convenient to the airport, freeways, and mass transit, and well equipped with a great pool and fitness center, cool lobby bar with occasional live music, and quiet comfortable rooms. I stay here almost monthly, and they've never missed on a single detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Farkie68 Great pet friendly hotel
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PB12 Amazing staff!!
I stay at the Aloft at Cascade Station every week and have done so for almost 2 years. I keep coming back because of the staff. Katie and Kayla greet me upon my arrival, always with a big smile. Kayla has gone out of her way to provide for my needs, sometimes without my asking. Katie has provided information on shopping, dining, and anything else I ask. One evening upon my return from work, I found an adorable cat fashioned out of towels with a happy note from Kayla and Justine. These special touches mean so much when you are away from home. Cheryl and Gerard are my morning "greeters" and always have kind words for me. Kristine, the shuttle driver is great as well - always a kind word and fun conversations. Finally, Asaahd (sp?), the bartender can mix up anything for you and is very creative in the food department as well. Like everyone else there, he is friendly and always greets me with a smile.You must try this hotel. You will be extremely impressed with all the great staff here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rhon Friendly staff!
Best part of this hotel is the staff! Location is great. Decor seems somewhat dated, Carpet in my room was wrinkled. Although fairly new, already needs a facelift. Loved the fact that they have a little "to go" food section so I could grab a snack even though it was after midnight when I arrived.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kubby61 Quality Place.
I had a very comfortable stay in the Aloft. The friendly staff made the stay that much more pleasant. They were personably, and very interactive with the residents.
The location and accessibility to a variety places, Ie, restaurants, shopping, Light Rail, made the stay that much more convenient.

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 3 out of 5 by Foodie47 Very disappointed to discover no restaurant on oremises
Disappointed that front desk employee did not inquire about dining experience we were seeking. Sharpe recommended Red Robin across the street for evening dinner, not what we had in mind at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by afishcalled I would stay here compared to most Westin Hotels
Crystle was amazing and providing me great service at an ungodly hour of check-in. The room is exactly what I expected. The hotel staff is extremely friend and the location is very easy to get to. There are a couple of restaurants that are open late just in case you fly in late at night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JannaA Dogs abound
We spent one night in Portland and saw 4 different dogs at the hotel.
I love animals, but didn't think the pets should be down in the bar area. I don't think they appreciate live music.
Also, there was a smoking area outside that chased my group from sitting outside in the lounge area.

I enjoyed my stay here. However, i noticed that the breakfast had a separate fee and I hadn't realized that when I booked the room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Damselfly Aloft losing it's loft and going downhill
We've stayed at this Aloft on at least 4 occasions and the last two were less than stellar. I would no longer recommend this Aloft to loved ones without some improvement. We are SPG gold members and the last visit we were placed next to a party room, and at 1am we finally begged the front staff to have the noise level reduced as we were leaving on a very early morning flight. This was our second request! No one was in the party room any longer - they had just forgotten to turn off the music after our first request and guests had left. For this most recent visit I couldn't believe the condition of the comforter on the bed. I would have been embarrassed to donate it to the Salvation Army, it was really that bad and very uncomfortable during the night as a result. I can't believe the location of the room we were given as SPG members - second floor overlooking the roof mechanical area. Really?? And how about this question at checkout, "Was there anything we could have done to improve your stay?" Yes, oh yes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PlatosBeard Great location
Located very close to the airport and in a clean, safe-feeling area. Lots of shops and restaurants close by, as well. The hotel bar area was very classy, and the live music was great. My only complaint is that the walls are a little thin. I could hear laughing from down the hall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jdm25450 Great Hotel for Short Stay
Being just a short distance from PDX, this hotel made it a perfect place to hold a small business meeting. While not offering a full service food and beverage menu, my needs were taken care of by the Sheraton a sister property. I will absolutely stay there again on my next trip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TD23 Mostly good, a few tweaks to improve
First time in an Aloft. Mostly i liked the room design -- very convenient for an actual traveler. I do have a few nitpicks though that might improve future properties.
1. The clothes hangers are high, but not high enough to hang a pair of pants. I'm short, yet mine flopped on the tray below (and prevented use fo that shelf). Generally, though, the alternative closet is kind of cool.
2. Shower drain was deafeningly loud (i.e., woke the sleeping). We found that putting a washcloth over the drain damped the noise. Might just be our room (407).
3. Sink is pretty but function doesn't live up to appearance. In particular, the drain stopper was broken -- or maybe just weird. None of us could figure out how to make it open short of taking it out. We may be idiots, but there are probably more like us out there.
4. It would be really useful to have a towel rack by the sink, not exclusively in the lavatory (which might not be accessible). We wound up clipping a towel to the aforementioned hangers so that we could dry our hands easily after washing.
5. Definitely specific to our room, the desk chair was broken. Sit in it -- you'll find it lists hard to the right. Usable but a bit uncomfortable.
6. Pool was nice, but putting out a few more towels would make it nicer.
Again, these are all minor points. The room was, in general, quite nice. A few adjustments in new properties to the basic design would make it more pleasant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nosky "techie" hotel
We decided to try this hotel because it was close to the airport and we could leave our car for 6 nights and still get a good room rate. It was a fun experience for us "older" ones. We loved the modern take. Great shower and nice bathroom amenities. Will definitely stay again

We arrived late from a flight, but the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly. They acknowledged my status with SPG and were good at describing all the features of the hotel. It is very close to the airport and convenient if you arrive late or need to head out early.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frank62 Compared to Italy's hotels, this was heaven
After a wonderful three week tour of Italy, and two very long flights from Rome to Portland, a kingsize bed and a spacious bathroom w/a staff who made use welcome gave my wife and me a greater appreciation for the heavenly night stay at the Aloft. Frank & Diana from Eugene

Request for freezer placement not followed through, the freezer pack for my medication was placed in the refrigerator in the back and not the freezer. My medication was not kept cool through the next day's travel as the freezer pack was not frozen and is no longer good.

This is a great hotel for the professional traveler as well as one that brings their pet. My dog and I were both greeted as soon as we walked through the front doors. When we checked in, my dog had dog bowls, a toy, and treats waiting for her. What a pleasant surprise.

This hotel was perfect for my conference in Portland.
Train access close, easy and cost effective to convention center. I took the shuttle from the airport, but the train would have work too, and only 2 min from airport. Nice retail and restaurant next to hotel.
