Rated 4 out of 5 by buyersk Dark and Noisy
Although the staff was excellent and the decor very hip, I found that the hotel hallways and especially the rooms were VERY dark. The noise level (6th floor) was very high - coming from the hallway and all the way from the front patio, street, and bar below.

The hotel was convenient to other attractions in Atlanta, but my main reason was to attend a Braves game. I found the hotel nice, clean and modern furnishings. The hotel is very comfortable and casual. I enjoyed my stay!

This place was great. From the time of check in till checkout. Very modern place with a hint of new age. When you enter it puts you in the mind of a loft the unfinished look blends in well in the setting. The rooms are great 'nice king size bed very comfortable great sleep. wonderful staff will meet your every need. I will stay here again

Rated 5 out of 5 by KathyL1103 Above and beyond
We got to hotel at 1030 am and even though check in was not until 3pm they had a room ready and were able to check us in early so we didn't have to carry our luggage around downtown Atlanta. We also had my 14 year old niece at last minute. They brought us an inflatable mattress for her to sleep on. Was an awesome "bed in a bag". Needed extra towels and they had them to us in less than 5 minutes. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. The rooms were large, clean. The only downfall was the lighting was a little dim in the room. Not a big thing during the day because the windows let in a lot of light.

We arrived late at night after chaos at Atlanta airport. All the hotels were full because of a Microsoft conference, but one full hotel recommended Aloft. What good advice it turned out to be.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bemartinjr My worst SPG Stay ever
As a Platinum SPG member I've stayed at a few different properties. I can tell you from check-in this has been my worst experience. The front desk stay is unfriendly, and did not recognize my Platinum status. The housekeeping staff is highly inconsistent, and today when I came back into the room it was completely unmade (even though the maid was standing at my door when I left and I asked for it to be made up), The "food" selection is minimal and highly unsatisfactory. When I went to get a breakfast burrito on my second day they said they were out (They only serve sandwiches and burritos). My first night at the property there was a band in the lobby and I could hear it from the 6th floor until 10 pm.
The ONLY two things this property has going for it are its proximity to the aquarium and the nice area out front where you can lounge outside and have a drink and a cigar.
I not only will never stay at this hotel again, but I would never consider Aloft again.

We wanted a good central location for a girls weekend. Easy to walk the area with rarely needing to get in the car. Staff knew the area and was able to make great recommendations. Very helpful and always smiling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MR0179496 Abhorrent Aloft stay
I am writing you today to express and voice my concern with my recent stay at the Aloft hotel located at 300 Spring Street, Atlanta, GA on September 27, 2014. Although the hotel’s cleanliness, decor, and the location were incredible, the service was set at a poor standard. Please see the egregious violations below:
Upon my arrival for check in, my reservation could not be located. Once it was located I was charged that standard rate instead of my negotiated reservation rate for that night. (I have the email to verify this rate if needed). I also booked a king size bed, however I was given a double.
After arriving back at the hotel around 10:50 PM on Saturday night, my party and myself went to the bar to order food. Mariama the waitress informed me that the kitchen was closed and we were told we could not make any orders. However when I asked a bartender he instructed me that I could still order food, after having to raise my voice and concerns I was able to get some food for myself and my party. During our meal Mariame was curt, un-attentive, and surly.
The next morning my party and myself arrived down stairs for breakfast. We were informed that the Chef did not show up for work and the breakfast time was cut short. Again I understand the hotel has no control over employees, but the lack of a back up plan raised another concern.
I truly believe Starwood has a brand that is innovative, expects nothing less than exceptional service, and they will go above and beyond to meet their guest/patron needs. I will continue to patronize Starwood hotels, however this particular location is off of my list I would expect to hear from the General Manager Terry Hill in week or so to answer these observations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GoldReviewer Oh so dark
The parking gate to the hotel's open parking lot (no parking garage) did not work when I tried to enter. I had my room key re-keyed and it still didn't work when I tried to exit. I was sitting out there until I located the call button which was not lighted and almost impossible to find in the dark. When I checked out, I was informed that it had not been working for some time.
The toilet seat had stains on it when I checked in.
On the second day of my stay, the used towels that I had placed in the sink were not removed or replaced. I had to call twice for replacements.
In my opinion, the room lighting was unsatisfactory-- way too dark.
The flat screen TV is mounted flush to the wall and was essentially un-viewable from the desk.
My room had an annoying above-the-counter sink bowl and did not include a stopper.
The sliding bathroom door did not have a lock.
Nice firm bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PrettyWoman0614 The customer service was awesome!
As my family and I entered the hotel we were greeted by an awesome staff. Smiling faces with warm greetings made us feel right at home. Ashley at guest services welcomed us to the Aloft hotel and answered all of our questions making our decision to stay easy and inviting. She and Darryl were very attentive to our needs they were amazing. Other staff members were so willing to assist promptly with our request. The general manager was the greatest GM I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I had an unpleasurable personal business matter and he went above and beyond to assist me helping utilize the business center. The hotel was beautiful and classy in a great setting, it met and exceeded our needs and expectations from the entrance to the exit and everything in between. The food needs some improvement, but we were told that the kitchen size did not afford the quality/type of food that we expected at the time, however I am sure that will be coming soon. Overall the amazing customer service and hotel accommodations WOWED us. Ashely and Darryl at guest services and the GM created Raving Fans at the Aloft Atlanta Downtown location. I/We look forward to furture visits at this establishment.

This was my first time in Atlanta and it was the huge ISTE 2014 Conference. The Aloft was located within walking distance to just about everything I needed or wanted.
The Room was spotless, had lovely décor and the staff was very responsive to my questions, friendly & efficient.

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was very professional and attentive but not overbearing. I like that I could run downstairs and grab a late night snack and the bar had the yummiest cocktails. The shower pressure was great and the shower stall was very roomy. To me this hotel is minimal chic and I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leonard357 Two Weeks Aloft in Atlanta
The Aloft is located in downtown Atlanta and within walking distance to many of it's popular attractions. The room accommodations are very well suited for business travelers. The Aloft hosts several events per week to allow you to relax after a full day of business stuff. The entire staff was very helpful and very friendly. They were always ready to assist with directions, recommendations for tourist activities, and restaurants based on your food interest of the day. I did initially have a minor problem with my room but once I brought to the attention of the front desk personnel, it was taken care of immediately. I would definitely recommend the Aloft Atlanta - Downtown for anyone wanted a relaxing atmosphere and well appointed accommodations and within walking distance to Centennial Olympic Park, World of Coca Cola, Children's Museum and the Georgia Aquarium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SaintsMan Gameday Stay
I pick this hotel because of it being in downtown and what seemed close enough to the Georgia Dome to walk and also the price. This was the first time I stay in an Aloft Hotel. The hotel was very nice and clean. There were other people staying there for the football game, however it was not loud or noisy. My wife and I was able to walk to the game without problems as it was not far from the stadium. The only draw back was the parking where our room card would not open the gates and we had to buzz the lobby desk every time we wanted to leave. Though that was a minor inconvenience. Overall, I was happy with my stay and will probably look for an Aloft in the next city I visit.

I had to modify my reservation by adding an extra night last minute. They could not combine the reservations but the staff made sure we could keep the same room for both nights.
We were offered free drinks at the bar and a room on a high floor with the city view, a very nice touch.
Location is sensational if you are looking to visit downtown Atlanta and the Olympic park, just a 5 minutes walk away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TLoft Problem with check-in but staff did excellent job
I was not able to get to my room until 8pm because of a hold up with having rooms/cleaned/ready prior to my arrival. Although I was not able to check-in and get to my room right away, the staff immediately made me feel comfortable by giving me vouchers for appetizers and drinks, Once my room was ready, they called me and quickly got me to my room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BB30263 Not my Typical Aloft Experience
The front "talent" did a great job as usual and the space looked just about the same as the other ALofts I have stayed with... but as soon as you go upstairs that's where the similarities end.
The rooms are not configured the same, they are smaller with smaller sleeping and bathroom areas.
If this was my first experience at an Aloft I would most likely not return. But having been to quiet a few others, I know what they can offer.
