Rated 4 out of 5 by cat01 good and modern hotel for a stay in London - trendy
We stayed in the aloft end of May 2012. The hotel is still very new (built in 2011), therefore modern and clean. I was staying on bonus points and got upgraded to a suite which in general is great. The suites are very nice, only downside is that there is only a shower in there, no bathtub. Location is good, not exactly central, but near next to a train station about 15 minutes from tower bridge. Cleaning was not perfect, mirrors and glass doors still had some finger prints and fat on there. Compared to other starwood hotels, breakfast and especially service for platinum members is not great - we only got three items at breatkfast for free. Nevertheless, overall, a good and comfortable hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mazzoni One of my best hotels stays ever
The Hotel, staff, room, restaurant and everything was fabulous. Good value for money. I requested to have special arrangements for my wedding anniversary and I got more than what I expected. I will definitely stay again and I do recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rayland55 Stunning design, comfortable and clean luxury.
On arrival left to fend for ourselves with two plastic cards.
Where are the rooms? How do you put lights on? No space for hanging clothes in double room. Kettle doesn't open. Can't find a cup of coffee. Refused evening meal as didn't book. No parking space on arrival. Made a total of six trips to 2nd floor to transport luggage. Ate sandwiches brought from home in room on first night as didn't know how to order food. Is breakfast paid for? Will someone explain the routine here????

Rated 4 out of 5 by linnan A good standard hotel
If you want spotless rooms and bed linen, to have a sound sleep in a comfortable bed, you must definately choose Aloft East London.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bronskid17 Fantastic stay, conveniently situated.
Stayed with my daughter. Easy to find from the DLR and very close to it. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed. The beds were huge and really comfortable. I liked the touch that you could gain rewards in return for tidying your room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrianJJ Home away from home in London
Because of its location, Aloft is far more cost effective than most 4/5 star hotels in central london, but is only 35 minutes from the centre of town on the great Docklands Light Railway. What's nice about Aloft is the open SPACE around it - the river Thames, London's industrial heritage and the fantastic London City Airport, the breeze, you can jog, walk, visit the 02 venue and use the Emirates cable-car across the river or see Historic Greenwich. Or just catch up on work or exercise in the hotel, with the fast internet, well equipped rooms and open areas, gym and pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TravelPromoters Ultimate Business Base for Excel
In order to appreciate your stay at the Aloft you have to understand the Aloft brand and concept. This is primariily a business hotel (as its location suggests), just a few paces from London Excel it provides a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle of a busy trade show. I use the Aloft annually to run individual meetings alongside a leading Travel Trade show. This is not a leisure hotel and the facilities are in line with that, although the gym and the indoor pool allow time to unwind after a hard working day. The bar and casual areas, as well as the 'Tactic' meeting rooms overlooking the Thames are light, bright and contemporary in design. If you are looking for a comfortable bed, efficient airconditioning, plenty of plug sockets and grab and go snack food in between meetings, this is the perfect hotel near Excel with complimentary parking, access is easy from the M25.
