Rated 4 out of 5 by Galveston Aloft Domain
I was disappointed that the points needed for a stay at the Aloft is the same as the Westin. There is no comparison as to quality of the Westin compared to the Aloft. The Westin is a far better quality.
The coffee was , also, almost undrinkable.

The Domain area is excellent for shopping and dining. The ALoft was right there. Staff was excellent, room was very nice. We very much enjoyed our stay and would come again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by FrustratedinDallas When a Confirmation Not Confirmed
Long story short. We had a confirmed reservation for a room with two beds. I called the morning of arrival to reconfirm and to advise the hotel that we would not be checking-in until approximately 11:00 p.m. I was assured that everything was in order. Arrived at hotel and upon entry to room it only had one bed. Back to the front desk to be told the hotel was full and no room matching my reservation was available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by csukenic A very poor experience
I spent 2 nights at the Aloft Austin on March 2-4 and was extremely disappointed with my experience. Hotel check-in was smooth,and the room was clean/ tastefully decorated.
Those were the high points of the trip. The walls are paper thin at this hotel and getting a good nights sleep is very challenging. In addition, our room air conditioning system was load during normal operation - That was prior to the knocking sound followed in the middle of the night and through the morning. Upon waking in the morning (or more appropriately stated, leaving bed after not sleeping much), I visited the front desk who committed to having engineering fix the knocking problem and also deliver a couple extra pillows since the bed only had 2.
Upon returning that evening, I found that the pillows were delivered and assumed the AC to be fixed as well - Though it was left off. However, after turning back on the AC, the knocking returned again in the late evening hours. After realizing that I could not sleep with the loud noise, I finally turned it back off and went back to sleep. That being said, the lack of ambient noise of the running AC (sans the undesired knocking sound) brought to light again the fact that the walls in the hotel were paper thin - Both internally and externally to the street. With a 6th floor room (top floor of the hotel), you should not expect to be woken up by a passing car or motorcycle - Something that happened more than once.
I spend roughly 30-40 nights annually in hotel rooms and this was one of the poorest sleep experiences that I have had in recent years. I expected better from a Westin property.
All said, I would not choose to stay at this hotel again nor would I recommend it to others. I feel that I wasted the Starwood points in booking it and would have been much more comfortable elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by D3lbto Great location, fantastic staff!
I always stay at this hotel for business when I am in Austin for the location. It is very close to the Domain and this is great for meeting up for dinners and nightlife. The staff are brilliant and always very attentive and responsive to your needs. Brian and Andrea especially are a great asset to the team!
