My granddaughters and I had a wonderful weekend visiting family and the Schlitterbahn with a home away from home at Aloft San Antonio. The room was quiet and comfortable. We were able to control the AC perfectly and really appreciated that most. THANKS for a great stay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LovingSanAntonio Excellent price to value ratio
Had a very good night's sleep at this hotel My only downside is the coffeemaker did not work when we woke up in the morning so I had to get dressed enough to go down to the lobby for coffee. My only other concern is the sliding door to the bathroom/shower is very heavy and the track made the door hard to operate. It also has a handle only on the outside of the door so when my wife closed the door she had to use a lot of force which made the door hard to stop and it caught her wrist between the door and the wall. It would be nice to have a handle on both sides of the door,

Rated 4 out of 5 by BillLumbergh Extremely Clean, Modern and Comfortable
I absolutely loved the cleanliness of this hotel. It felt brand new to me. I slept like a baby and enjoyed the amenities. I was traveling 3 nights for work, but unfortunately by co-worker couldn't sleep because she said that there was light coming through her window. We left and moved to another hotel which costs more and honestly although it was a suite... it paled in comparison to Aloft. I would go there again in a hot minute.

Ruby and the team make me always feel welcome and appreciated. I do not consider another place to stay when visiting San Antonio for business; because of the hospitality, ease of the hotel, love the shuttle and the best coffee ever! Hands down 5 star, every time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chucrew A pleasant quick stay
Our family enjoyed this hotel for a quick night's stay. The room was clean and we always enjoy the modern quirkiness of Aloft. The rooms are neat and efficient. Our kids loved the layout and Eco-friendliness. We enjoyed the friendly staff who met requests quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gurumdaak First Experience
It was my first stay at a Aloft hotel. Staff was very friendly and check-in with no hassle. Definitely the vibe at this location would be best suited for young or business professionals with a new modern-contemporary age feel. I did come with a relatively large family of both elders and child, which enjoyed the stay as well. Would definitely recommend this hotel and hopefully next time have the opportunity to grab a few drinks at the bar.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mrtravel28 As Platinum I'd look elsewhere next time
Had two nights, two rooms booked. As a platinum I asked for breakfast for amenity but had to call corporate SPG to provide the front desk with the info that Platinum members actually receive breakfast as welcome amenity for each day of their stay. Both rooms were on the completely opposite side. One of the rooms didn't have a phone so connecting with my party meant a walk across the hotel every time I needed to speak to my business partners. When I brought this up to the front desk they didn't have a solution. Was given points in compensation but phone would have been better. Even the most basic motels have phones in the room and as a platinum member I find it unacceptable. I should have known better than to stay at an aloft.

I'm a Platinum SPG member so I spend a good bit of time in a hotel, not all of it at SPG properties.
This hotel needs to be whipped into shape. Good - Front desk greeter
1. Light bulb in lamp on work desk was broken with jagged glass hanging out
2. Bed sheet was ripped (I have pix)
3. Hole in carpet (again, I have pix)
Is this the image you want guests to come away with?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iroc65 Great Hotel, Location & Value
I recently stayed at this San Antonio Aloft hotel and was so delighted by the wonderful staff and atmosphere. It's trendy, upbeat, relaxing and location was close to any possible restaurant and mall you could desire. The staff was very welcoming and ready to assist you in any way. The Aloft and Starwood Preferred guest rates were so amazing that would fit anyone's budget. The outdoor grounds are amazingly comfortable with loungers and seating areas throughout the premise. The outdoor fire pit was so nice and we randomly met other people also enjoying their stay.
In addition to the outdoor area exceeding our expectations, the security of the Aloft is second to none. Security codes and personnel were always reassuring to us. The rooms were comfortable, nice size and design, and very quiet. I hope you choose to enjoy the Aloft Hotel in San Antonio as we did!!

I had a 9 night extended stay at the Aloft San Antonio Airport, and I cant say enough how well I felt I was treated while I was at this property! The room was always in awesome shape. The staff was attentive and helpful. The night staff at the XYZ bar was fantastic and really brought a fantastic night life to the hotel when I did not feel like leaving the hotel.
This is now my go to hotel when in San Antonio!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dallas1771 The BEST place to stay for everyday travel
Being a consultant and traveling often, this place is a phenomenal choice for anyone traveling on a budget. The front desk staff is always cheerful, interactive and eager to serve your needs. The service staff have always greeted me in the hallways and asked if there was anything I needed. I am a well-established SPG member and have stayed at many of their hotels around the world. This place exemplifies what SPG is all about and what a hotel experience should be. There may be slightly cheaper options out there, but the extra money is well spent.

I've been staying at this aloft fairly often the past few months and I enjoy my time here. The manager recognized me the past several times and has made it a point to welcome me back to the hotel.
I can easily recommend that anyone staying on the North Central side of San Antonio stay at this hotel for the price, rooms, and the lobby. The pricing is just right for a few nights or an extended stay for an excellent quality hotel. The bar and fire pit outside make a great place to meet friends and unwind with a few drinks from the bar.

ALoft San Antonio is the perfect location for any business traveler. Located nearby are some of San Antonio's best restaurants priced from $ to $$$$. No matter where your next day meeting is located it is very convenient to most of SA's major highways making commute time short and simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by qwert Hotel was great.
When we walked into the hotel, it smelled great. The front desk staff was very friendly and offered immediate information on hotel amenities, parking, WIFI password, times bar opens and closes, etc. The safe in our room was not working. When I reported it to the front desk, a technician came to our room right away and replaced the battery. Great service and very tastefully decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable. We slept great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sea2011 GREAT LOCATION; FEATURES AND EXCELLENT SERVICE.
This Hotel is an excellent option because it is well kept, you receive excellent service; while we were there Pamela at the Front Desk welcomed us and told us where everything was located inside the hotel. I loved the surroundings and it is conveniently located off the freeway making it so much easier to get to Sea World. It has excellent channel programming and the AC units work wonderfully! Our room was so cold which was something we appreciated with the heat being so intense.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GMan Perfect for business travelers
Aloft is a less expensive version of a W hotel: it is still trendy and modersn, cool music plays in the elevators, etc. But it is not as dark, I personally like the style better.
As a business traveler, Aloft provides everything I need: safe in the room big enough for my laptop, free WiFi and a comfortable desk to work, a comfortable bed, reasonably good coffee, quick check-in and check out and a clean room.
The fitness center is ok and so is the pool. The bar is nice and there is also a 24-hour mini-food mart with warm breakfast.
The room is simple, probably not elegant, but functional. I also like soap and shampoo sispensers - they are eco-sensitive.
Last, the hotel is in a very convenient location, surrounded by many restaurants for every taste: La madeleine for brakfast, Dough for awesome pizza and Guajillos for authentic interior Mexican.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MNCoop Great Location, Nice Staff, but . .
I travel for business, and have stayed at this hotel several times. This hotel has the typical Aloft vibe. The lobby has the ambiance you would expect, the bed(s) are comfortable, and the rooms are decorated in the Typical Aloft modern style.
Unfortunately, the hotel appears to be run by a bunch of young kids that do not have an eye or care for detail. Shower soap dispensers have loose lids (who knows what is in there), coffee and water are not consistently refilled on a multi-night stay, and the rooms are starting to show their age because they are not cleaned the way they should be. This week I was faced with 2 big garbage bags of trash left in the hallway by the maids (dinner time).
The location and rates are EXCELLENT, and the staff is VERY friendly. I have stayed here several times over the last 2 years. I will stay again, but it is not a 4 star hotel.

This hotel has great people working here. They genuinely want you to be happy and comfortable, and their manager, Joseph K, exemplifies what great customer service looks like! The physical hotel is fine, nothing spectacular. But me and my team really enjoyed the personal attention and service we were given during our return visits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Unhappy8433 This hotel had a great room but not so great public areas
My only problem was that on Sunday evening, the entire lobby and the outside pool and lounge area were completely taken over by a group that was blasting loud music. The music had obscenities in it (the hotel manager was contacted and I was told they had the DJ remove the music with obscene lyrics). I have to admit that I did not go back to the area to see if that did indeed occur. My husband and I had been looking forward to playing pool in the lobby and we could not as the pool table was out of commission due to the DJ they set up in the lobby and then we had planned on having drinks around the pool. We were VERY disappointed that we could not do any of this because of the complete take over of the public area by this other event. Had I been informed that this was going to occur, I would have booked our stay at another hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by njhall Horrible Management Decision
I believe I already sent this last night but if you're asking again I will reiterate my displeasure. Everything was great with my families stay until Sunday night. We were hoping to gather by the pool as a last get together before we went our separate ways and found that there was loud music for a "Hip Hop Rap" party. Whoever made the decision to host this in an open area of the hotel should be reprimanded as my family and I were paying guests to stay at your hotel and were displaced by what I am guessing was a group that paid for the time they were there. Again I have no problem with them paying to hold their function there but it should have been confined to a space where it would not inconvenience any of your other guests. I doubt I will ever be at your San Antonio location ever again but thought for future guests you should know what happened.

I am a frequent traveler, however, do not stay at Starwoods properties often. Not sure if it is the location or the structure but between the loud rap music playing in the parking lot after midnight, the motorcycle/monster truck reving or garbage truck emptying the dumpster at 6am...hands down the worst night I have ever had at a hotel since spring break in college.
