Rated 4 out of 5 by doggerk Good, straightforward hotel, but.....
As one would expect with the aLoft brand, everything is solid and straightforward. The proximity to PDX airport, Cascade Station shopping, as well as the TriMet light rail line (Red Line) are all good. The only issue I have (and have had most times I've stayed here) is the slowness of the Front Desk checkin process. Especially for frequent business travellers and SPG Platinum guests, this process needs to be lightning fast and at the aLoft PDX it is not. Either there are too few staff members (at times), or there isn't enough flex in the process or staffing to deal with it when there are more than two guests ready to check in. Aggrevating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe1974 Great Location and Quality Property
The first time I stayed here was very good but there wasn't anything around the hotel at that time. Now everything is around the hotel and all within walking distance. Close to the "MAX" train station (less than one block) which can take you just about anywhere. This is a fine property and my stay was great.

We love Aloft because they welcome dogs. They take good care of people too, and make it easy to travel with our Westie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ladolcevita clean, efficient, modern hotel
This hotel is perfect for the traveler who needs a great place to sleep, be close to the airport, has no need for frills, yet wants to be comfortable. Perfect for the modern, no nonsense type of traveler. I love the streamlined, smart, highly modern feel about the hotel. Rooms have the business-minded type of traveler in mind. All fixtures were in perfect condition, I heard no outside noise, the staff was great, and I especially enjoyed the modern, hip, highly comfortable feel of the lounging area. I felt I was in a modern Swedish hotel. Very nice!! Also very convenient to the metro system to get anywhere in town.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Manju Sorely Disgruntled!
After calling ahead and confirming that we would be receiving a double queen room, we arrived very late (they knew this in advance as well) only to find out that they were completely booked and our room only had one bed. My husband and I had just returned from a long flight, having both just had surgery and there was someone with us to help us. This was why I confirmed the double queen room ahead of time. We ended up not being able to stay as he had no where to sleep.. The man at the desk refused to refund our money and was rude when I asked him to note that we did NOT stay but had to go find another hotel. I will not recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cashmom Usually I like it, but...
We stay here several times a year and normally are pretty happy, but here we are on a Friday of a holiday weekend and the bar doesn't open until 5:00? Several people have been in and out during the past hour and no dice, no service until 5:00. So strange not being able to grab a happy hour drink in a hotel that has a fairly large size lobby bar.

We had a great experience at ALoft - Cascade Station. The hotel was great and the room was very comfortable, great decor. The "green" status of the hotel was an added bonus.
Most importantly was the warm and welcoming staff at the hotel. They made sure every request was attended to promptly. We would like to make special mention of the chef in the kitchen at breakfast. We did not ask her name, but she made sure the food was well prepared, hot and nicely presented. Kudos for that.
Once again, thanks for a great stay!
