My husband and I stayed two nights in July. We did not sleep well either night due to the hard mattress and loud hallways. People were up at 5am, slamming doors and talking loudly in the hallway. In addition, our shower would not drain well. I slipped but was able to catch myself. My father-in-law who stayed in the room next to us-had the same experience-He actually DID fall and is still in pain today.
The facilities are clean and the staff are helpful but for what I paid-I would have expected MUCH more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ADG1974 Average Hotel / Expensive Rates
It was an expensive room, with few amenities. For those who are "green", it has some wonderful features...but for the rest of the world, it was just average. For the price I paid, I expected more.

The staff were teriffic. Nothing was too much trouble and whilst I did not have many things I needed help with those that I did were handled promptl and with a smile.
My only complaint was the air conditioner in my room was nosy and interrupted my sleep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SBBB Good Stay
The room clean and functional. The bed was comfortable and there was not a lot of hallway noise or noise from the other rooms . There was no tub in my room but I was fine with that. The front desk staff was great. I had breakfast there and that was good too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by travel982364 Great place with only one "but"
If you get a room at the front of the hall like 113, you are going to hear some noise around midnight and 2 am as loud revelers come into the hallway. On the plus side, the beds are very comfy and the shower is fantastic.

We stayed a week at this location and could not be more pleased. The hotel was clean, quiet and well appointed. The staff was wonderful. Everyone we had contact with was friendly and attentive to our needs. Amy at the front desk took exceptionally good care of us. Seeing her smiling face and the fact that she remembered our names made coming back to the hotel at the end of the day an even more positive experience.

I stayed here a couple of nights for a business meeting in this part of town [Ballentyne]. It meets the standards of other W hotels I have been to - clean, efficient, professional, and innovative. I would definitely stay here again

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheRaptor3826 Great hotel but put in a real kitchen!!!!!
First - Hugh Haye at the front desk is the top of the top!!! Do NOT lose him - he is the main reason I return to your hotel!!!
Second - for Pete's sake - get a real kitchen in your hotel. You are serving many professional executives and we don't like microwaved eggs (fake) and bacon (probably fake). C'mon - really? AND - the "cook" cannot handle more than 3 people or he feels rushed. With that set up - I don't blame him! Make that change and you will hit 5 starts - but not until then!

Rated 4 out of 5 by longcheckin slow check in
i arrived with a group of over 20 people and the check in process took forever. We had booked the rooms as a group so it should of been no suprise that we would be checkin in together. in the future you could have room preassigned and keys already make up to expite the check in process.

Arrival was per the usual for Aloft Ballantyne - AMAZING and SPEEDY Service! Rooms were golf course side connecting - JUST as we REQUESTED - THANKS! Had a few snacks - FRESH & TASTY!. Worked out a bit - EXCELLENT Equipment, SUPER CLEAN Fitness Facility!. Slept soundly - VERY COMFORTABLE Bed, QUIET Room. Towels / Bedding / Room Appearance - CLEAN x 3! We'll be BACK! One thing prevented and EXCELLENT overall rating - there needs to be enforcement to ensure owners clean up behind their pets (this was DISGUSTING).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suzi22 The staff at this hotel is outstanding
From the minute I walk through the lobby to check-in, until I check-out at the end of my stay, the staff makes me feel welcome and genuinely cares about my needs and making me feel welcome and comfortable. I've traveled for business for 25 years, and they are in the top 2% when it comes to customer care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Otsego75 Wonderful stay
Our band stayed during a 10 day period at the Aloft Ballantyne. The staff was so responsive. We had to have a refrigerator replaced and it was taken care of immediately and efficiently. We so enjoyed the delicious made-to-order breakfasts. We also enjoyed access to top-notch food and coffee. The bartender was also skilled and created delicious and refreshing beverages for us. I would say the staff was the most accommodating of all hotel experiences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3HNDRD Top notch hotel but the staff really makes this stay worth your while
Everything about the hotel is spot on - clean, comfy, modern, visually pleasing, etc, etc. But I really want to mention the staff. Wow - so friendly and accomodating. They take customer service to a new level. I especially want to mention Hugh from the front desk. The Aloft hotel is very lucky to have someone like him on staff. When you think of who you want to be "customer-facing" Hugh comes to mind. Thanks for a terrific stay.

Since I stay at this hotel once or twice a month, they seem to know me now. It is so welcoming to walk in and have someone say "Hey Ms Soto, welcome back!" before I even get to the desk. The team is always smiling and helpful. Always efficient and knowledgable. You have a customer for life! Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pandaman A Jewel in the Charlotte Area!
My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to stay that would accommodate a large dog. She was traveling from VA and I was coming up from MS.... and we stumbled upon this hotel from BringFido. It's incredibly hard to find a dog-friendly hotel that doesn't charge an extra fee on top of the standard room rate. We lucked out and found this gem in the Ballantyne area.
This hotel's service and cleanliness made it remarkable. They even let us a bring our large dog! This is the one absolute seller for this hotel. It allows you to bring pets, doesn't charge you extra, and maintains room cleanliness on top of all it. You would think that since they allow pets, the rooms would not be as clean or would have a smell, but we didn't experience that at all! They even put us on a dog-friendly floor, making it easier for us to take our German Shepard out when needed.
In addition, we were treated very well by the staff, and got simple small requests very quickly from the front desk (toothpaste, toothbrush). The housekeepers were very pleasant and did an excellent job with our room.
The local area is nice, a great out door shopping center with all you can ask for is literally across the street. Right next to the hotel is a walkway that traverses through the Ballantyne Golf Course, which is beautiful, with rolling hills, ponds, and wonderful trees/grass. Everything is maintained really well, so evening walks/jogs are scenic, to say the least.
I don't think I'll ever stay at a different hotel in Charlotte, if I have to travel there again. It's perfectly accommodating and definitely surpasses the expectations of the rate you pay. Highly recommend!

Stayed at hotel for a friend's wedding. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Love the W Hotel chain's use of Bliss bath products. Staff was very helpful and friendly. However, would not use car service recommended by hotel for transportation to the airport. It was very pricey, and the driver increased his price by $5 after I repeated the amount back to him. Could have taken a cab for $50 or less to the airport and saved some money.
