Aloft New Orleans Downtown

New Orleans, Louisiana

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.

I booked this hotel in early March and looked through the reviews before doing so and felt confident in booking the Aloft. It had good reviews, an excellent location and typically stay at hotels within the Marriott family. Now I am seeing that later in March and April, many others experienced what we did...VERY unclean rooms. We moved rooms multiple times and still was not satisfied but gave up and made the best of it. The rooms smelled of smoke (it's a non-smoking hotel, granted the hotel can't control what people do and do charge a fee but that doesn't seem to deter people.) The rooms were very dirty - carpet was nasty with stains and layer of dust/dirt along baseboards, sticky on bedside table, hair in bathroom and one of the beds smelled of urine. Definitely not acceptable standard for any hotel let alone in the Marriott family. We were told there is talk of refurbishing the hotel and it is definitely needed ASAP! I do have to say the Front Desk Staff were wonderful! They apologized on behalf of the hotel, tried to do what they could to make things right and gave great local recommendations. Read less

The front lobby staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms vary in size and it’s dog friendly. The bartenders were awesome. It was an issue at the hotel and the front staff handled it perfectly I would definitely come back.

My husband’s sister passed away and we had to come to New Orleans for the funeral. We always stay at the Aloft hotels when traveling.The New Orleans Aloft was a little disappointing when it came to customer service and cleanliness. We were also very disappointed that they did not have any coffee in the main lobby. We only had a coffee pot in our room with 3 individual coffee bags. There was no microwave in the room so we had no way to heat up our food. We stayed 3 nights and no one checked if we needed any towels, coffee or toilet paper. The location however is great.

We had an outstanding stay other than the fire alarm going off at 4am on a Saturday morning. I’ll take it as a safety measure that the hotel made sure all guest left their rooms and returned when it was cleared by the Fire Department

If you are looking for a decent hotel close to the French Quarter, but not in it, this place will work. Rooms are standard for an ALOFT, great AC and comfy beds. They have a nice rooftop pool. The bar in the lobby has a great happy hour. The down call was the alarms went off multiple times around 4am one night. Also the front desk seemed more… Read more

The bar in the lobby has a great happy hour. The down call was the alarms went off multiple times around 4am one night. Also the front desk seemed more interested at time in playing on their cellphones than acknowledging guests walking by. Read less
