Rated 5 out of 5 by Funkmistress Amazing staff!
When your boss tells you that you need to live across the country for 5 months, you're not pleased. Long workdays, being away from home, and not knowing anyone for such a long time is rough. Being at the Aloft Cupertino, however, made that time as best as it could have been.
Rooms: The rooms were nice and clean, and didn't feel like a regular hotel room because of the decor and style. The bathrooms have lovely showers, and there are dispensers for shampoo/conditioner and bath gel, which I liked better than the little bottles that most hotels give out. The beds are super comfortable, and they have Apple TVs in all of the rooms, which was really great.
Pool: They have one. I used it once, and it was nice.
Robot: Yes, they have a robot. Botlr. He's adorable. If you get (smaller) items delivered to your room, it's quite possible that they will send the robot to deliver them. It's cute and fast, and forgetting your toothbrush has never been so fun.
Gym: I just used the treadmills, and they were nice. It was never crowded when I was there.
Bar: Amazing. The food is really yummy, and I didn't get tired of the options even after 5 months. The wines were tasty, and the bar itself is fun-looking. They have a bunch of TVs as well. And the bar is the focal point of the hotel - they have happy hours, and events throughout the week. I happened to be there for a few of their bigger nights, and they had great music and DJs. I miss this bar, and I live in NYC.
Staff: The staff here is by far, the most wonderful and delightful people that I have come across in my years of business travel. The front desk staff is great, especial Teresa - she helped me get great rooms, helped me get a better rate, and booked me a room at the last minute when the hotel was full and I had forgot to book my next stay. Everyone that I dealt with at the front desk was friendly, helpful, and real. I felt like I knew so many of them, and they were always available to chat.
I managed to get to know the bar staff very well (side effect of living in a hotel), and I heart them all. Doug, the food and beverage director, is great at his job, kind, and is a great and hilarious presence to be around. It's very apparent that he cares about each and every of his employees, and that they all respect him as well. Jessica, Alicia, and Rob were also amazing bartenders - they knew my drink preferences and my name, and got to know me over time. They became friends by the end of my stay, and it was so great to get to know them.
You should stay here :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJS74 Terrific service and room
I recently visited this aLoft hotel for the first time and was very impressed! The room size and layout worked well and was quite comfortable, the Apple TV in the room was a nice added benefit and the staff was exceptional! Aileen Ryan at the front desk had one of the best attitudes I have ever encountered. Aileen was also very helpful and friendly, which really made my day. Thank you for a job well done!

The hotel is close to the Apple headquarters. But besides that it's close to everything else in Cupertino as well and you can reach the mountains and the highway pretty quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginach316 Great Pet Friendly Hotel!
I loved my stay here at Aloft Cupertino! My primary reason for choosing this hotel is because they have a great pet policy and there is no charge. We were not quarantined to designated "pet rooms" and the robot even bought us dog bowls up to the room!
My 2nd reason was that as a SPG member, I am loyal to the Starwood Brand as I find that they have the best beds and best pet policies.
The staff at Aloft Cupertino was great- helpful and accommodating! I forget the name of the lady that checked us in, but I stayed from Feb 13-15. I think her name is Theresa? She was awesome and even gave us a late checkout- 4pm with no extra fees! I was really impressed with the staff!
I loved the room as well, it had a nice, clean and uncluttered design. It was very relaxing and comfortable. I loved the self dispensing Bliss shampoo and conditioner as well. Great concept all around for the hotel and the next time I am in town, I am definitely staying here! I have also already looked into other Aloft locations :)
