Rated 4 out of 5 by deanbeaner pleasant stay
A pleasant stay at a comfortable hotel. There are a few things I would recommend to management:
1. Give more detailed information at time of check-in regarding availability of breakfast, food and beverage options on location, and other amenities available.
2. put dimly lit night lights in bathrooms for night usage.
3. Refrigerator in room made noticeable humming noise all night.

Using the SPG app. Got stuck in traffic on a cross country trip, decided to stay in B'ham. Nice hotel, great staff, wonderful bar and walking distance to some great places to eat

Rated 3 out of 5 by SusanHLama Housekeeping really blew it!
I stayed three nights in this hotel. I returned to my room on the second day of my stay -- after a very long day -- to discover that none of the supplies in the room -- coffee, creamer, etc -- had been replaced. And when I returned to my room the evening of the third night I found that housekeeping had not visited the room at all. No clean towels, bed not made, nothing. The room rate was very high for Birmingham, AL, so at least these basic features should have been met. The hotel seems to be all flash and little substance.

This 5 Star Hotel has everything that the travler would expect of their own home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BBLC A great place for a good night's rest
I stay at this hotel when I am on call at work as it is much closer to work than home and I can go to the hotel quickly from work and sleep for a couple of hours or eight if work doesn't call. The staff members are always friendly and always recognize me as an SPG Platinum member. I've never had a problem here in multiple stays, except ESPN going out and not being able to watch football on two different visits that were several weeks apart. The beds are outrageously comfortable.

Everything was so great about this hotel. I just love the Aloft brand and it is certainly my preferred hotel when I travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penne CHIC hotel with great features and a perfect location
We love this trendy hotel and often travel to Bham just to stay there. Aloft has wonderful rooms, a great bar, breakfast/snack features, and free parking. There are even small refrigerators in each room. The ONLY addition I would make to this fantastic hotel would be to provide small MICROWAVES in each room. A microwave is a MUST for me and the only perk missing from this cool hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TCardillo An unorthodox, but lovely little hotel
I loved most things about Aloft. The design was contemporary and sleek; the high ceilings really made the room feel enormous; the balcony overlooking the city area had a great view; the room was bright; I loved that amenities (like parking, water and WiFi) were all free; and it was within walking distance to a great coffee house, several restaurants, and a bar that played live music. The on-site bar and restaurant were both excellent. The one downside - and it was not insignificant - is that the bed was not as comfortable as it should have been. I didn't sleep well, as a consequence (but I will acknowledge that I am a "Princess and the Pea" sleeper - few hotel beds meet my expectations).
