Positives: Prefer a free breakfast but glad there were reasonably priced breakfast options, as we had to be on the Florida campus before 9 am. Close proximity to campus, shopping, huge selections of restaurants, and a movie theater. All staff encountered were friendly and helpful. The gym was larger than many gyms at similar sized hotels and had a nice set of weights in good condition and additional workout machines. The lobby was an inviting place to hangout with a bar, various types of seating, and a pool table. There were electric bikes and scooters available for guests. Appreciated a standard noon check out instead of 11:00 checkout most hotels do.
Negatives: Are hotels still not cleaning rooms unless you stay for a certain amount of nights? We stayed for three nights and our trash receptacles were overflowing by the third night. Not enough weight on beds. We had a fitted sheet over the mattress followed by a bed sheet, a very light duvet, and another sheet on top of that. I found the sheet on top of the duvet an odd style, but really wish hotels would provide some kind of bedding that had some weight to it. Surprised with the amount of hardscape leading out to the pool, how small the pool was in relation to it. We very briefly used the outdoor pool. It was extremely hot outside and we wanted to enjoy the cool water of the pool. It was like warm bath water. Either the chiller was broken or there wasn't one. The outdoor pool was a big reason why I chose this hotel since I brought children with me.

Wyatt family with young children May 18, 2022
Positives: I like the ALOFT flag and have stayed in several of the properties. The hotel was exactly as I expected. The staff was less than what I would expect. It took 20 minutes to check in, even though there were 2 employees checking people in and we were the only room checking in. As we were walking on our floor to our room, one of the cleaning staff had their music blasting music with lyrics that would make NF blush, obviously without headphones...
Negatives: more attentive staff
