Rated 5 out of 5 by Thedude1 UFC Fight/Guys weekend
This hotel is exactly what is needed for the downtown area. It has a great location to all of the local watering holes, a 5 minute walk to Amway Center for sporting events, and quick access to all major highways when it's time to leave town. A win-win for all of these above mentioned items!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sonia44 Room needed to be sound proofed
Other than the giant generator noise that was impossible to ignore and ruined our stay, the hotel is great! Recommend sound proofing those rooms that are exposed to the generator noise. Unfortunately, we was disappointed. We were looking forward to restful night due to a long drive but what sounded like giant generator right in front of our windows keep us up all night long. This room needs to be sound proofed. We were up at the crack of dawn and while my husband took his mother to the airport, I packed and checked out and waited for him downstairs. We couldn't wait to get home for some serious sleep...this threw a wrench on our weekend as we had originally planned to stay in Orlando for that weekend and considered staying an extra night but we were too tired.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nurs69 Weekend Stay
Good downtown Orlando location near Amway Center and Court House. This hotel is catered to adults, I would not recommend having children stay here, unless they were teenagers or older. The rooms and common areas were clean and well maintained. The staff were courteous and helpful. No spa on premises, closest is in Grand Bohemian Hotel. Food at the bar was poor- nothing made in house. Alcoholic drinks were incredibly expensive. No children channels in the room TVs. Minimal breakfast choices (a la carte) and very expensive. I would recommend this hotel for a quick weekend but know there are no amenities or extra anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie71 Hotel is top notch.
Our room wasn't ready when we got there around 4:00 and we had to share a room with other people because we had a wedding at 5:00. I also did not get my receipt via email. The text for our vehicle arrival did not work.
Overall Aloft is a beautiful hotel in a very nice location. Wish we could of had more time to enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALF33 This hotel is absolutely perfect.
EVERYTHING about Aloft exceeded my expectations!
The entire look/feel of the hotel is perfectly modern/clean and inviting. Makes you feel that you're staying at a very upscale establishment. Perfect location!
The staff couldn't have been friendlier, and made check-in/check-out fast and easy. No problems whatsoever. Spent some time at the bar (which included 2 free cocktails with the room-type that I purchased) and the bartenders were extremely friendly and caring as well.
Purchased the cheapest room possible with a king-sized bed and the room was HUGE! We were so pleasantly surprised. Floor to ceiling windows, an extra living room/office area in front, beyond spacious and so so nice! Room came to $200 total for one-night and it was WELL worth the money.
I have stayed in my fair share of hotels and this is BY FAR my favorite to have every stayed. I plan on going back here as much as possible and can not say enough good things about Aloft. Truly an excellent/perfect hotel all around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kdub63 Excellent Experience
I've had several experiences with Aloft hotel so when I chose to host my business event at Aloft Downtown Orlando (after being open only 2 weeks!) I had no doubt this was the right location. The staff exceeded my expectations on all levels! This place is off to a great start and I look forward to having the opportunity to get back there for more events! Nice work Aloft Downtown Orlando Team!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pm19 The best staff ever!
The staff at Aloft Orlando went so far above and beyond - was such a pleasant experience. I travel extensively and rarely do I encounter a staff as nice as the staff here. I will definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Di88 Loved Aloft Orlando
really loved this NEW option in downtown Orlando as an alternative to the older hotels there. Only minor complaint was the shower water pressure was very weak. Staff was terrific and all facilities were great. Will definitely stay here again when I return to Orlando. Love the great work space in the room - very functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeteG Excellent choice in Orlando
Flew into Orlando for a quick business trip and while I have stayed at Aloft's in the past, i had never stayed at the hotel in Orlando, but wanted to give it a chance. It exceeded my expectations and would absolutely recommend staying here to anyone. Staff is excellent, room was huge, clean and stocked well. Its a quick 15-20 minutes to the airport. When i return to Orlando, i will definitely stay here again. Keep up the good work!

This is my first stay at an aloft property. I have to say, I was beyond impressed with this property and the staff. Too a chance and it paid off in Spades. Nice job!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrew333 Nice SPG option in Downtown Orlando!
Great to have another SPG option in downtown Orlando. This is a new conversion from an office building and they've done a nice job with offering suites/room size you don't always find in this chain of hotels. The front desk staff was really great! Know that it's a valet parking only hotel, as is the case with many downtown hotels. Also, no on-site full service restaurant, but you are in very close walking distance of many great downtown restaurants. The downstairs lobby is fun and exciting and offers good night time atmosphere on certain days.
Love the new SPG option in downtown Orlando and will use this hotel again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by nbkl5v5 Average but expected more for price and reputation
I was late to work twice, once because of the wait for the valet to bring my car around, and then once because I was waiting for breakfast. The cook was no where to be found, although the front desk insisted that she "was back there somewhere"...I left with no breakfast.
Happy hour was a bit of a disappointment, with no top shelf vodka available. I also ordered a Caprese salad only to be told that there was no balsamic dressing available but I could have ranch instead??? I asked for plain oil and vinegar and was told they did not have that either, but after a search were able to locate some.

Rated 1 out of 5 Find another SPG property to stay at
Hotel is noisy, needs a referb, hotel security is zero. Was there the night of a Miley Cirus concert at Amway Arena, and after the show the little girls were screaming running up and down the hallways till 2:30am, front desk did nothing about it, and I got an extra 500 points for my troubles. Which doesn't make up for the lost sleep. Hotel is best suited for the Hipster crowd, bad choice for the average business person. Location is also bad. Restaurant selection in the area is poor at best, lack of evident self parking is also kind of a joke the appearance of having to valet at $20.00 a night, which is also over priced. What Orlando needs is a Westin in downtown since the Sheraton closed and this is the only SPG property in downtown now..

Rated 3 out of 5 by Penelopy307 The rooms in this Hotel are very small
Everyone is helpful, however, the rooms, although clean, are very small. If you are overweight you will have trouble fitting into the bathroom. Also you hear everything from the outside, including construction nearby which begins shortly after 6:00 am.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Disneyfan82 Hotel lacks certain features
First-there was no air conditioning vent in the bedroom part of our suite so it was very hot. Also it was very noisy from what was going on outside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Donna87 Suite furniture needs improvement.
The furniture in the suite needs to be comfortable. It is hard to watch televison from a bench seat. Without comfortable furniture the room is a waste. My husband was able to use the desk in their but there was no place for me to sit and watch t.v. while he worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott333 Awesome first time stay at Aloft Hotel Downtown Orlando
I wanted to tell you that my son and I came up for the night for the Magic/Heat game. We had a such a great time! The staff at check-in was fantastic, everyone was very nice even though we were "Heat" fans. Lots of joking around and making us feel welcome. The room and view was very nice, we had drinks at the bar and enjoyed playing pool, very enjoyable. I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the Orlando area. Every staff member was fantastic, hotel and guest room was so clean and comfortable. Keep up the great work, I will be back!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AliceUK1 This hotel has avant garde decor when compared to others
A refreshing change to experience contemporary furniture and décor in a hotel. The room was clean with a comfortable bed.
On the downside, there was nowhere to hang garments in the bathroom, or a dress in the closet.

Our room was on the second floor right on top of the lounge. The music went on until very late in the night making going to sleep difficult.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaxx91 Modernism?
The room was very nice and clean. Unfortunately in this minimalism there were barely any(1) hooks for damp towels or bating suits.
The staff was super friendly, especially Maria and Juliana at the front desk. The running maps were great! Perfect size and laminated against sweaty palms!! Great spot in town, especially when the Arts Center opens

Rated 5 out of 5 by Will Great staff, great location
I have stayed here twice now. The staff, the rooms and the location is ideal. The parking valets must have been hand picked by the hotel. I really love the concept of recycling a building rather than tearing down and building new!!! Keep up the great work!!! Thanks and I'll be back.
