Rated 4 out of 5 by RBMB Great stay, but fell short on room cleanliness
Staff was perfect, room was great. Only thing to note was a miss in the room cleanliness. There was an opened bag of potato chips left, a large puddle of what smelled like Beer on the carpet which we all stepped in and the worst was a Swisher Sweets cigar package left on the floor. I had my kids with me, both under 5 and these were not things I wanted them getting into. Pretty gross
Will be staying again in coming months, as we all have off days and I'm sure this is just a miss.

We stayed at aloft City Center in Chicago for 2 nights. The location was great, right downtown but a bit more affordable than the hotels right on Michigan Ave. Our room was very clean, the bed very comfortable and we slept well. We also liked the grab and go breakfast, very quick and convenient. We would definitely stay here again.

I was surprised to be able to hear my neighbors through the wall. Not only do I hear them walking around, dropping items on their floor, but also hear them rising & closing their curtains. This was the first starwood hotel where I could hear everything from my neighbors. I was also able to hear when my neighbors were taking a shower too. I would recommend adding soundproof drywall to the rooms to prevent neighbor noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mosaic53 Few Minor Comments
Some things lacking in the room are a towel bar or hook near the sink to put a towel after washing hands or face, only one is inside separate toilet/shower room. Need to have another mirror near closet area, where one would normally dress. If more than one person is staying in room, makes getting dressed (& applying makeup) more difficult.
VERY small details. Hotel only open a couple months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ek2013 Hotel experience good, but confusion over pricing
I did not have any issues with my stay. However, when I booked the room, there was confusion over pricing over overnight parking, work facilities charge, etc. When we checked in, they honored the rate given to me over the phone, but it was a hassle.

This was not a great location for our needs - the Chicago Marathon. Parking garage was three blocks away and expensive. Vacuuming in the halls at 9PM and 8:30AM. Our beds were not made. Very pricey for no extras. The front desk staff were very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hornecj Clarify Breakfast Package
Our family of two adults and a 10 year old stayed one night in room 1110. What a fabulous room with its decor, view, giant windows, contemporary feel! Service was very good My only suggestion is that the breakfast package should include a full breakfast for two people, not a $20 credit since $20 cannot cover the cost of a full breakfast for two people. Alternatively, disclose the credit online to set guest expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jon1660 Fantastic 2 day stay in Chicago!
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Aloft in downtown Chicago! The location was amazing being so close to bars, restaurants and things to see and do. Most impressive, the room was very quiet in the mornings - no troublesome sirens could be heard. We will definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Htx17 Fantastic Location
Aloft was a great hotel experience. The location was perfect for enjoying Chicago and being able to walk during the day for shopping and in the evening for restaurants and nightlife. The staff were awesome and extremely customer service oriented. This is my first choice for where to stay when visiting Chicago!

Enjoyed this newly-opened hotel very much. It has a W hotel feel with a trendy lobby-bar-restaurant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jleif2188 New, friendly and impressive hotel!
This was my first experience at the Aloft hotel brand and really enjoyed the uniqueness of the product. The modern feel to the hotel fits nicely in the trendy area of Chicago. I think this hotel is great for any occasion and highly recommend to anyone considering a visit to the area.

The ALOFT Chicago just opened a few months ago. It is very nice. Very comfortable bed in a stylish room where the window actually opens for fresh air.
The staff was very professional and greeted me every time I entered the building.
Beatrix the hotel bar is very good with good food and great crowd.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CuzMike Has Limitations
This location has its limitations. The room was very nice, maybe a littlle small. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. But, cell phone receoption in the room was poor and wi-fi hit and miss. Additionally, self-parking was two blocks from the hotel and valet parking was difficult with only curb space to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amy100 1st timer at Aloft - loved it
The hotel was very trendy and fun. The staff was friendly. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The only negative was the pounding music from the restaurant/bar downstairs and the outside street noise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KBEK13 Great location, Was expecting more
Hotel was cool, location was great. The rooms were intended to be cool, but seemed a little cheap. The staff was wonderful. When your neighbor opens their shades it sounds as if it is happening in your own room. The walls and windows do not block any noise from the outside of your room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GGregg This aloft does it right!
Great location. Great restaurant & bar. The staff is excellent -- a very well managed team. The doorman -- I believe his name was Luis -- gave excellent service when getting my car from the valet.
By far the best managed aloft in which I've stayed .... and it's new to boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TJ201306 Nice Hotel
Stay was great except for 2 items....
1-No plugs on work desk. I cannot figure how you can have a brand new hotel open in 2013 and I have to crawl under the desk to find a single open plug on the wall?
2-Show had extremely low water pressure.
