Nice and beautifully designed rooms. Food was great with so many options of restaurants/cuisine. Staff could actually be properly coached on procedure, although this wasn't much of an issue.

This was my first experience with the Aloft brand, and since then I have returned again. The location is convenient for the exhibition centre, but if you have a car (parking is free) you are within easy reach of many of Abu Dhabi's main spots as well as within easy reach of the airport.
The rooms are large and very well equipped. Loved the complimentary magazines in the room, especially free copy of Time Out. Coffee and Tea facilities. Platinums get an upgrade to a large corner room, complimentary breakfast and 2 free drinks vouchers per day to make up for the fact that there is no club lounge! There was also a personal note from the manager, which is always a nice gesture.
Service is friendly and I have had the ocasion to sample most of the facilities, and they are top-notch.
The pool is just beautiful, and a very relaxing place. The pool bar does pretty decent food and drinks too. There are often events at the pool in the evenings, some of which guests are invited to attend. The main restaurant has a very comprehensive breakfast buffet, which in our case was complimentary, but otherwise is great value. They also have a buffet lunch and dinner options, all of which are good value too. Some a la carte options throughout the day.
There are two rooftop bars. One is more of a club area which is popular with locals but never seems to attain critical mass, and the other is a beautiful outdoor rooftop bar, which has great views.
Other facilities include a well equipped (but small) gym room, a lobby bar, and a takeaway Re:fuel bar. There are some pool tables and even a scalectrix in the lobby reinforcing that this is a young brand where affordability doesn't necessarily mean poor service or surroundings.
Very happy with the experience and will look forward to staying again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincos Nothing Sub- about this Sub-Brand
My first experience with Aloft and I am a believer. I requested an airport pick-up in advance and all was flawless. The attractive reception staff was upbeat and friendly. I loved having the take-away food shop in the lobby and the cool vibe of the mostly young and attractive clientele.
The room was as fine and chic as those of this chain's big sister.
Outstanding was the setting of the rooftop pool - pure Hollywood glamour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shisha one of the best
I have stayed with my family over aloft during november, I have noticed that hotel has nice view and its in ideal place to stay (location). I like to suggest to have dinner buffet need to include more choice, but breakfast was great.
Its a in a great location, and value for the money you pay. Hotel has nice facility and rooms are above standard. Great view and best place to relax on a weekend on your vacation

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.

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.
