Rated 3 out of 5 by fjhopk05 Typical Aloft
This is a typical Aloft. The staff is friendly and the place is clean. The furniture is stark and uncomfortable, including the bed and pillows. There is only one chair in the room and it is a desk chair. There is a couch type thing with no back but it is directly under the TV so not much use for watching a show or sporting event. Over all okay for a night..

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdhoffma Very cool place!
My kids thought the hotel was very hip and they were glad to stay there. My husband and I enjoyed all the colorful and modern design touches. Our puppy appreciated the comfy bed and food/water bowl. Nice area surrounding the hotel as well. There is a small complex with restaurants and stores right next door. It is also very close to the Chapel Hill campus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diente better than expected
Before this stay I tried to avoid Aloft the decor seemed to busy for my taste and I would prefer something plain, but I needed to be near UNC and I had to have certain people near there at specific times. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and convenient it was. Every time I see the patients I had stay there they mention how great the Hotel was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eddy1958 Cool and laid back!
The hotel staff is very laid back, even the bartenders which sometimes is unusual. Typical bartenders tend to interact more without prompting but here once you strike up a conversation, they interact with you more. This is a great location with several great restuarants within a short walk. Greatest valet staff ever! Wish the fireplace had been working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diane Great hotel
Everything you need in a nice ultramodern hotel conveniently located. Extra towel, complimentary water, many electrical outlets, alarm clock, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful and there were many varied food items for purchase, including delicious muffins made at the hotel. A pool table was a big plus for us. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DoorSlamHatr Solid for the money....little noisy
Have stayed here a number of times and the hotel is great for the money. However, this stay was extremely noisy as there was a UNC game and it seems like lots of college age people stay here. They were coming in an out of the rooms all night long slamming doors etc. Hotel is a bit on the cheap end so it is easy to hear in the halls.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ckhm1st Aloft - still tops but Service @ Chapel Hills...
Great hotel in the spirit of what one expects from an SPG Aloft brand hotel. The staff seem distracted and unconcerned about the comfort of the guests. Reserved two rooms for 2-night stay. Six folks total but only towels for four. Requested more and never received - had to search out and acquire for myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dadio919 Hotel with an edge, but the staff need not have the same edge
I travel a fair amount and for the price, the Aloft DOES NOT provide the value that other SPG hotels or other chains provide. Also, 2/3 staff members that I engaged made me feel like I was doing them a favor by letting them assist me- this really left me with a poor customer experience.

I felt your hotel and staff were the most accomodating I have ever experienced. Everyone was friendly All my questions were answered clearly and helpfully. The rooms had everything we needed. My 6'5 husband was so excited to actually fit in the over sized shower . He said he died and went to heaven.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Veee Great proximity to UNC Chapel Hill
This hotel has great proximity to UNC Chapel Hill. The staff is friendly and pet friendly. I like the little gift vacation package for the kids. The dog walking areas in the nearby residential condos are sufficient with dog curb facilities.--bags and disposal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 1533tara comfortable, nice staff
The front desk staff is very friendly here. I was not recognized at all as an SPG guest at all however...This is our second stay here and I was recognized the first time as one, but not this time? Anyhow..good selection of food items in the hotel market...pretty clean and pet friendly.

Did expect Starwood excellence... but it went beyond expectations.
Pool Table - The kids loved it
Exercise Room was fully equipped
Pool looked inviting... next time I'll bring a suit
& MOST IMPORTANT.... A SHUTTLE TO TAKE US TO TOWN WHERE PARKING IS A PAIN. ON TIME, GREAT DRIVER

Rated 4 out of 5 by VaMom great stay
The location is wonderful, easy to find and easy ride to either Chapel or Durham.
The staff was cheerful, polite and helpful.
The room was clean and attractive.
Only two drawbacks, one is the noisy a/c unit and the very slow internet.
I would stay again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bushy When on the Road Aloft is Perfect
Chapel Hill, NC Aloft, like the other hotels in the group, bear a contemporary design style that suits my eye. The appearance of being spartan is decieving. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast bar is ample for getting back on the road. Well priced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by snowcone3 convenient & edgy!
This is a wonderful hotel that I've recommended to many people. Two things would improve the rating to excellent: weekend shuttle -- this is a sporting event town guys!!! and the breakfast eggs get soggy because of the wrapping. Everything else is fabulous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sawadee One of the best ever
This was one of the best hotels that my family and I have ever stayed in. Super clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was in a great location with real breakfast in the hotel, not doughnuts and bagels. Gym and other ammentites were a added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 Outstanding experience
We were visiting UNC for the weekend and Aloft perfectly suited our needs. It's close to campus, affordable, clean and fun. Staff is incredibly friendly and lounge feels like it's your personal living room. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jamie17 usability comments
While the design of the room was very appealing, we found it inconvenient when one partry was still sleeping that there was no small light option for the bath area. only one switch for the whole bath space and it bothered the partyy still in bed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bobcat Suggestions
The Chapel Hill Aloft was nice. But the new carpet & other chemical smells (paint ? fabrics ?)were over-powering !
Not quite as bad in the room itself..
Needed a bottle opener. Staff and bartenders were NOT helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jim13 No morning coffee
Overall ok stay, but this is the 2nd time at this hotel, and if you are a business traveler who start their day off early, chances of a morning coffee are non existent. Both visits asked for creme, sometimes they can find it, sometimes not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edin Very affordable, modern hotel at great location!
Stayed here for two nights in February. I played in a tournament and was very tired afterwords. Great comfortable beds. Service was outstanding - everyone was willing to assist and comfort us. Great atmosphere at the bar - free billiard too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Princess uncomfortable sleeping
I would like to say that the beds were very uncomfortable and very hard for two days I was there I did not rest at all.
The Pillows were two soft, I woke up in pain around my neck and body ached for the two days.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Martin56 Very disappointed
This hotel reminded me if a college dormitory. It seemed quite outdated even though it was supposed a new facility. Room and bath were very small for the market price.

I stayed at the Aloft in Chapel Hill, and it was my first time. I was impressed the minute I arrived. The valet service was great. The front desk attendant was very friendly and helpful. I felt like a VIP!
