Rated 4 out of 5 by DCGuy2777 Remember Oyster Card
This is a beautiful hotel. It has everything you could ask of a Aloft/Starwood property. The front desk is very helpful, its directly next to the train to the city.
The only issue is that it is far away from anything in the center of London. It is not always an easy transfer. The best advice I got was to make sure I had an oyster card. You can use it between the different train lines and you don't have to stand in line each time for a new ticket. Also the fare on Oyster cards is significantly cheaper then paying for single tickets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Per10 Value for money
Aloft is a great option for everyone using London City Airport or doing business in the Canary Wharf Area. If you are in town to explore the British capital you should go for a more central location, it is a rather long trip on the train between Aloft and central London. And it isn´t very much to explore around the hotel, unless you are a great fan of big exhibitions (London Excel is on the door step).
Having said that, I find the rooms very comfortable, great beds and well kept. The public areas are modern and inviting.
No SPG-recognition, stayed there a couple of times as Platinum, but no upgrades.

Great room, really comfy bed. Only real complaint why have paper cups in the room - not what I would expect from a top hotel!

Excellent hotel that was surprisingly easy to get too/from despite it's out of town appearance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lucy3103 Perfect except one hiccup that got fixed in the end!
Me and my partner came here for a small get away and absolutely loved the hotel.
There doesnt seem to be much around until you learn the area enough.
We walked over the o2 and enjoyed using the emirates air line.
We ate out at o2 every night as didnt like the menu offered by the hotel.
We loved the hotel style, the staff were great and was overall great value for money
We did however have a small problem with our fridge. After having our stuff in their all night friday night we noticed monday morning the fridge had gone warm. We called reception who sent maintenance up. They informed us that it was set on low to be 'green' and that because our fridge was full it couldnt cope and he needed to turn it up to high setting to keep it cold. He did this but by this time i wasnt happy enough to risk consuming alot of the food so had to chuck it out.
Apart from this it was an amazing stay and we have just booked to stay here again for another long weekend :D
