Aloft New Orleans Downtown

New Orleans, Louisiana

Virgin rating

The hotel

Whether you're in the Big Easy for the music, the shops or just to get a taste of the Deep South, Aloft New Orleans Downtown is on hand to give you a great base. As you'd expect from a hotel that's got its finger firmly on the fast-paced pulse, you'll find fitness facilities, super speedy WiFi and even a grab 'n' go snack counter available around the clock, as well as a rooftop pool open morning, noon and night. The W XYZ bar offers the very best in classic and contemporary tunes as well as live acoustic sets, cocktails and draft beers, meaning you don't have to roam too far to have fun although, with Bourbon Street and the French Quarter nearby it would be rude not to spend at least one night on the tiles. Thanks to plush platform signature beds in your comfy guest room you'll have every opportunity to kick back and relax after a good day's sightseeing or naughty night out, and if you're looking for that extra touch of magic to compliment your stay in the South then Aloft certainly fits the bill.

We stayed for 3 nights recently. The hotel was fine. It was clean and very quiet for being very close to all the downtown action of New Orleans. My only complaint was about housekeeping. We asked twice on the first day (once before 10am as requested) to have housekeeping clean up our room and it was not cleaned. When it wasn’t cleaned, we told the front desk that evening and requested again the next morning before 10am. It seemed like a joke, but our room was never cleaned our entire visit despite multiple asks, as requested before 10am and bringing attention to the fact that we were missed. On the third night of our stay at 4pm while getting ready for a wedding, a housekeeper knocked on our door but that timing was off and we were also leaving early the next morning. Read less

Everything from checking in, to the comfortable room, to the snacks lounge, to the location.. this place really has it all. My wife and I stayed during jazz fest and our room was like a sweet refuge from the the sun and hustle bustle.

My wife and I stayed during jazz fest and our room was like a sweet refuge from the the sun and hustle bustle. We commented to each other multiple times: the party is always great in NOLA, but where’s the true relaxation piece? We found it. A huge thank you to aloft and the staff! Read less

The hotel is cool, modern and conveniently located to downtown and the French quarters. I liked that a lot of things were in walking distance, but I didn’t really feel safe in this area.

The hotel is cool, modern and conveniently located to downtown and the French quarters. I liked that a lot of things were in walking distance, but I didn’t really feel safe in this area. Like most downtown areas, there were a few too many people just wandering around and trying to inappropriately engage with me. That made me feel very uncomfortable. The room was standard and very clean upon arrival on Tuesday. I realized on Wednesday that we weren’t scheduled to have our room cleaned until Saturday, the day we check out. I was able to find housekeepers on my floor that were willing to exchange our dirty towels and give me other items I needed. Most of the toiletries looked like they were half used and not replaced with new ones. I did have to make up my own bed daily and take out the trash myself. I understand why this is being done, but it’s a little too self service for my taste. I didn’t eat or drink anything in the bar or restaurant, but the area looked nice. If I’m ever in the area again, I would consider this location again. Read less

Rooms are not cleaned daily, we had to ask at least three times to get clean towels, shampoo and have the trash removed. Shower handle was partially broken. Definitely they need to work more on service. After 11 pm, the room card is necessary to enter to the hotel. We arrived at midnight, the guy at the front desk was not seeing us though I was… Read more

Definitely they need to work more on service. After 11 pm, the room card is necessary to enter to the hotel. We arrived at midnight, the guy at the front desk was not seeing us though I was knocking the glass door. Finally we were able to do the check in only when another client entered to the hotel.
