    modern decor, fantastic location, very clean

    We had never heard of Aloft Hotels so it was a bit of a gamble but we were pleasantly surprised. It is in a great location, very very clean and sanitary, quick check in and lovely room. It is very modern with an actual loft feel, kind of stark furnishings but goes with the theme. No buttons in the elevator now you use your key card from the outside, pretty cool. Def stay again! Cap City Upscale Diner right out front.

  • 6.0.Good

    A spacious room with terrible Amenities.

    The TVs are terrible. The TV is locked into motion smoothing and makes me sick with no way to adjust the settings. If you try to use some streaming apps the TV will overload and shut off. No microwaves available to guests. The bed hurt our backs. The room is spacious and has a nice view. The parking is free and is located by a ton of restaurants and gas stations.

    Good hotel for the price

    The room was perfectly clean . However, I was charged TWICE ....once from booking though and again by the actual hotel. They need to make sure things are in order on their end before running someone’s card. That’s unacceptable

    Pleasure, not business

    The hotel was nearly deserted due to the pandemic, so my review should be considered in that context. It did appear to be very clean and well kept up. My room was not suitable for a meeting with a second party, so it is probably not the best choice for doing business.

    Nice place to stay when visiting OSU

    We had a short but very comfortable stay. Just one night to pick our daughter up from OSU. Aloft is close and convenient to her dorm. The outdoor bar with fire pits was open, and that was a very nice end of the day amenity.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The staff was super friendly and it was clean. The only slight set back is there was no fan in the bathroom and while the toilet and shower were separate from the sink, the sliding door didn’t give enough privacy as I would’ve liked. Not a huge deal breaker but something I’d consider if wanting to stay again.
