  • We stayed in the Corner Savvy Suite. The room was very nice and spacious and the staff was great. Our room was very warm most of our stay. And at the middle of the night we couldn't take it anymore and went downstairs to tell the person at the front desk. They had to reset the AC and then it worked fine. I don't think that's very typical and they corrected it very quickly. There is so sign for the valet parking so it's difficult to know where to turn in. But overall we were happy with the room and we would stay again.
  • Aloft is my favorite hotel of all time. We are always on the search for one when we are traveling. I love the spg program. Dogs are welcome here so it makes it very convenient when we travel with our fur baby. Rooms are always clean and the decor is the cutest. Modern vibes. The bar is great. Pool table is at every location and the pools and patios are always clean and pretty. Nice workout area as well.
  • Great location right near i4 and 408 with valet parking. Hotel looked great and everyone was extremely friendly. Appetizers served at our event were top notch!
  • Overall great experience at the Aloft orlando hotel. Decided to stay for 1 night to go.bar hopping in downtown. Very close to all the night life. The room was very clean as was the hotel. Very modern and contemporary design through out the hotel. Only thing I would s at should be changed is the mandatory valet parking of $22.
  • Very nice place to stay. The staff was extremely nice and welcoming. Our site was huge and had some really cool decorating choices. Bed was comfy and we didn't hear a lot of outside noises. Towels were super cheap and rough and $22 for overnight parking is insane.
