Rated 3 out of 5 by Ram0 Value for money for Business Travellers
A great concept that gives excellent value for money for the bueinss traveller. A few events in the calender makes it enjoyable during some evenings and weekends.
With a bit of improvement on the facilities / building matainence (some construction issues needs to be resolved) and service in the restaurants (F&B staff attifudes could be better) they could become the best business hotel in town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by varusam Room was sad, bed was brilliant. HSK + Engg was Okay. FNB all over was blissful and a treat.
The best Sushi I have ever eaten. Met with the Chef (Royal) I wish you could deliver to where we stay in Dubai. Was amazing.
Amit at the pool bar was brilliant and Simson on the 12th floor was great too.
Visiting your FnB outlets seeing your staff smile and enjoying what they do just made everything perfect.
We dint care about our room and check in experience anymore.
Manager Rochelle was good too.
Thank You for a lovely stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Saeed3002 The hotel gym was not to expectation
The gym equipment is not up to stander most of the cardio machine screen is not functioning. All the people who is using the pool keep walking in and out to use the toilet. The gym facility need more equipment and extra facility like a sauna and steam

All staff very helpful - desk particularly Rochelle and Sam. Guys who park the cars have tough job as not much space but unfailingly helpful and polite. Nice sizeable room - quiet and good air con - very restful when necessary - will stay here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RafKam Like a Mini-Resort
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.
