Rated 5 out of 5 by IkeaJaci great stay for business
I had recently stayed at this hotel when I was in Miami opening up the new Ikea. I really enjoyed my stay here the hotel was beautiful and I really enjoyed the pool... The only problem we had was parking was very difficult especially on the weekends...
The hotel staff was very friendly, especially Danny C. He always gave us reccomendations of places to go and was always cheerful. He got to where he even knew what I purchased for my nightly snacks. I would hope to be back in the future...

After checking in my wife and I went to sleep around 9:00 pm at around 11:00 pm the load noise started from the next room. I called the front desk and reported the noise. The gentleman said he would investigate. At 12:00 am the noise did not stop, so I called again. This time the same employee said no worries sir it should stop soon. Well at 1:30 in the morning it did not. I called again and again they said they would take care of. I had a wake up call of 4:45 am I left my cell number with front desk to have manager call me. I then called the hotel and asked for the manager which I was told she would call me back never happened

Rated 2 out of 5 by WorldSPGPlatinum Extremely disappointed...
Here's my experience after a week long business trip. No where to park as you pull into the hotel. Lobby is packed with loud music. Music is loud inside the room late into Midnight… Finally fall asleep late into the night and woken by construction noise at 7am (even on Saturday). I would not stay at this hotel again."read less

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jeremy1314 I don't sleep well in night clubs
I am generally a big fan of Aloft hotels. I stay at them frequently, including 9 days that have booked over the next month. I will continue to stay at them frequently. I will never stay at the Doral Aloft again. There were a few minor problems like having to have my bill corrected to reflect my platinum free breakfast and having to have some erroneous charges removed from the bar I never went to. Those things can happen anywhere. The major problem is that this hotel tries to be a nightclub, and worse, they pull it off. I had a second floor room and could not escape the pounding of my walls till midnight while the DJ played right below. A small problem when I am on vacation but a much bigger issue when I am there for business and have an early morning, Also, because of the nightclub draw, parking is atrocious. A problem when I have to drive around the lot and overflow for 20 minutes hoping to find a spot. I would actively recommend that this hotel be avoided, unless you want to sleep in a night club.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HQ0906 Staff and hidden charges and accommodation
While the Hotel has a great ambient in the lobby with music and drinks the front desk personnel is not at their best..
The most annoying part was that you were not clearly informed and is a shame that for every single item you took from the cafeteria area were charged to my room.. a simple apple or orange at ridiculous 8 usd..
a poor quality breakfast for 14 usd..... and finally every day I have to ask for a new key room as it got dis-programed even I kept it in a safe place
the last item was limited parking spots... have to park at the curve or outside of hotel property

Rated 4 out of 5 by R2Dj It could be a lot better
The hotel is very good and is an exact copy of all Alofts I've stayed. The only big problem was the Air Conditioned Unit in the room. This unit was so noisy that it kept me awake every night. With the Miami temperature its impossible not to use it in your room all day.

I stayed two nights July 25-27. I was greeted by Francia. She was very pleasant and assisted me with my room. She recognized that I was a SPG member and ensure me I would get my points for staying. Even I arrived at 12am and the bar was closed she made sure I was still able to get me and my guest a drink. The hotel is beautiful and well kept. The room was cleaned. I love the shower. The hotel is near the malls and great restaurants to eat. Saturday night they had happy hour from 5-8pm but the bartender was late. I didn't like that but the guys that was working that evening made me and my guest feel comfortable and offered us beer until the bartender arrived. The live band sounded great. I would stay at this hotel again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jeffegrego GREAT experience
The staff of the hotel were helpful and extremely responsive. The room was spacious and comfortable. The darkening shades (while seemingly a minor detail) enabled me to rest comfortably.
The complimentary shuttle to the Mall was a nice touch!
