Rated 5 out of 5 by DY1979 Long Term Stay
I have stayed at this hotel for for almost 1/3 of 2011. Friendly and attentive staff. Location is conveniently located without a lot of traffic that other hotels get from being downtown. Close to the Abu Dhabi airport. Hotel amenities (dining, gym, and events) make it convenient for busy individuals who don't have time to travel away from the hotel. They take care of Platinum guests very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PistolPete Lovely hotel but staff was really poor
Good design however the phone in the room didn't work throughout my entire stay.
Service was bad. At breakfast, the staff was busy socialising between themselves and kept ignoring the customers. Also they were noisy in their conversations. Floor was dirty, a guest dropped some food, and the staff just left it there. Was not offered anything to drink. Asked if a food item I wanted contained sugar but got no answer and it turned out it was full of sugar.
Worst was when I ordered sea food platter. The mussels shells were all broken with end result that lots of tiny pieces were mixed with the actual food. When I mentioned it to the staff, I got a dismissive response. I did not eat it but ended up paying for it.

Hotel itself is one of the nicest i've stayed at. in terms of service there is some work to be done. i asked the same question to the staff on 3 separate occassions, was promised an answer, and never got one (it was around SPG recognition). Called in for toothpaste and that took a while.
I asked for late check out at 2pm, and they granted me so. I went to the pool until around noon, came back to my room and my key wasn't working, obviously because they didnt make the appropriate changes for my late checkout request and assumed i should be out by then, which forced me to go downstairs and re-explain my late checkout request.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SalkiniFamily A Frank Evaluation of Aloft
1) Besides some minor issues which no hotel is perfect for, Alfot Abu Dhabi in overall has left us with a very pleasant impression, from the reservation helpful staff (Mr. Ziad) to the reception staff, to the restaurant very helpful staff, all were amazing whom we all greatly thank for making our stay unforgettable.
2) The Hotel location was also great being part of the exhibition exhibition complex that hosted the Summer Abu Dhabi Festival during our stay, and also its location near to Shk. Zayed Mosque and in between Ferrari World and Marina Mall area.
3) The Aloft Restaurant food was one of the best we have tasted, and I could even say it was better than what we have tasted at Dubai's top hotels this summer.
4) Finally and most important of all is the value and overall experience that exceeded by far what we actually had paid for!

Rated 4 out of 5 by James The location is excellent.
This is a relatively new hotel located next to the convention center. It is very trendy in it's design and I am more of a traditionialist. I arrived in the middle of the night and observed what I thought were laundry bags in the elevator lobby. They turned out to be "Fatboy" seats of some kind. In 7 nights at the hotel, I did not see anyone sit in these and most thought they were strange. It is difficult to get service at the front desk. It is not staffed adequately and the wait to speak with someone is longer than it should be. Many of the staff are not knowledgeable about the hotel and the general area. You need to ask several people before you can get the information you are seeking. The room is very simply furnished. The bed and desk areas were comfortable. However, there was not an easy chair or sofa. There was one chair with a back--not really comfortable for watching tv. The breakfast buffet was excellent with great variety. However, the staff was more interested in cleaning than in getting a coffee for the guests. It is strictly self-service. Service at the WXYZ Bar, the poolside bar, and the rooftop bar was fine. The rooftop bar had a great view of the area as well. It was disappointing that there is no executive lounge in the hotel. The website said that laundry facilities were available, however, there is only 1 machine for over 400 rooms in the hotel. It was impossible to use.

The hotel style and approach is interesting but needs improvement - especially in communication to customers.
There was more than one issue during my stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alice1 The Staff was so friendly
I absolutely love the hotel. The design is so modern. The bed was so comfortable and i didn't feel like getting up in the mornings. The staff was so friendly and helpful and really added to my experience at your hotel.
I do have one negative point and that was the hotel security guy who was a the entrance at so-high was a rude person he did bring our night down a bit.

Excellent and new hotel, with great location for adnec events. Great pool area and very confortable room. The staff gave 110% effort to please any request I made!
The only drawbacks are that in the nearby area there isn't anything but adnec and the hotel lacks a great restaurant (they are all good anyway).
I will absolutely return here

Rated 4 out of 5 by archietek Very convenient
The ALoft is very close to my project job site. I can easily walk to my job trailer. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.
I love large showers and the ALoft has a great shower.
I enjoyed the buffet dinner. The chef even prepared my pasta just the way I like it.
I am looking forward to my next project meeting.

I stayed to Aloft Hotel for a week, while taking part in SIAL Exhibition.
Excellent service, very good breakfast, clean room and a wonderful pool bar!
After a stressful and tiresome day, Aloft was my hideaway, before the night exit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ct63 Great staff gready management
This a good hotel if you have a business in the neighborhood(which is not very touristy) rooms are large comfortable and clean but our room airconditioner wouldn't slow down unless turned off and so it was very cold!.. The best part about the hotel was it's staff .. Specially at the reception.. They were very friendly and helpful (we needed some documents printed and copied and they helped a lot) but the worst part was that no sanitary or dental kit or even a pen was available in the room.. Some you could get by calling housecleaning or buy some from roomservice.. ..Does it realy save that much money? Realy damaged the comfort of the room

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nick291 Great staff
Cool and very vibrant hotel. Nice rooms, good breakfast, excellent fitness and real high speed internet. The only negative thing is the location - hotel is in the middle of nowhere but it is absolutely FANTASTIC if you are attending a fair at ADNEC. Literally 1 minute walk!!! City is about 20 minutes by car and taxis are dirt cheap in UAE.
Housekeeping could be better though but things happen and not all the employees are the same.
Fantastic SPG recognition!!! Got an upgrade to a suite (even though upgrades at Aloft is not a part of the SPG benefits) and tons of vouchers for discounts and free drinks.
Staff is really very helpful and friendly.

I was very unhappy with the stay here. I have been to many hotels but this was the first that to a 4 star hotel which did not have toothbrush, paste, bathroom slippers, shavin kit nothing was included in the room. Service also is very dissapointing..We had booked 2 rooms, one room they called and asked to vacate by 12.00 and other room they gave us till 1.00, we were ready by 1 and asked for bell boy that guy came at 2.00..when we asked for extension they just refused saying 12.00 need to check out...Checking in the hotel also took a lot of time when its EID holidays there should have been more staff to handle the rush. Overall a dissapointing stay for the price i paid.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bale1 No wake-up call
Although the room was top notch, construction on the facilities marred my overall view of them. Also a non-existent wake-up call almost caused me to miss my flight. Had I not woken up and checked the time, and had my flight not been delayed by 30 mins I would have missed it.
For the room (and facilities without construction) I would highly recommend this hotel however the staff never seemed to be rushing to serve a customer, at one instance I was ignored by a receptionist not to mention me not receiving my wake-up call, a small issue but one that could have cost a lot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AlWashaq Why?
Parking issue at the hotel (you have to deliver your lugguage at main entrance the check in to get a parkin access card to multi storey car park , go down again to get the car an enter multi storey parking , and this time security sent me to a higher level with no reason provided the hotel designated parking is free, so it took me 45 min to check in after i handed my lugguage )
Room not clean when checking in (coffee spilled on carpet) house keeping not effective (cleaning cloth left at room, dining tray not removed , number of towels after cleaning not as before
