    All spaces very well thought out. Made complete sense.

    Great hotel, minor adjustments needed
    Overall great stay. Would stay there again, with a couple minor adjustments. Room 609 has to have the loudest heater/ac unit in the bldg. Please have someone check that out. Also, the sink water pressure was extremely low. Valet wait: TERRIBLE! After my first night of my 3-night stay, the guy at the desk said the valet guy may be getting another car. After waiting 10 min he says he’ll send a text. Valet guy comes and seems confused by the ticket given to me by his coworker last night. He then gingerly strolls across the street to the parking sense of urgency. I had an 11:30 appointment that I was now running late for from waiting for valet. Later that evening at 9:57pm....valet can’t locate the keys. Called down and gave the front desk the last 3 digits on the ticket (042) as requested. Now the new guy can’t find the car keys. Yet again I’m now running late from another valet fiasco. I’d stay here again, but to pay $62/night for this kind of unprofessional, confused valet service, is much rather park in one of the lots or chance parking on the street. Having clear, consistent procedures would go far with the valet service. Each valet seemed to have their own way of doing things.

    Not bad
    This hotel was super convenient since we attended an event exactly next door. But, the hotel in my opinion is geared more towards the younger generation. There were board games in the lobby & near the bar area. Seems like a good place for fun & drinks. The room was rather small. It resembles a college dorm. We were surprised by the unfinished look of the room. But the name of the hotel is "Aloft". Therefore, the room is designed to resemble a loft.
