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.

Shout out to Jessica and Frankie for Outstanding service! Jessica you went above and beyond to make our stay in New Orleans for Mardi Gras as good as it could be. Both Jessica and Frankie had a smile on their face and a pleasant attitude. Also Lynell thanks for taking such great care of our cars , you rock! You also had a great attitude. Honestly, if it had not been for these three people I might have had a different experience, but every time I came in contact with them they were so friendly and helpful, so truly thank you. They gave 5 STAR service! This hotel has a modern (read sparse) feel about it, and it is not for everyone. BUT, my corner 2 Queen suite was very clean and comfortable and roomy. The location was great and easy to get to. Read less

I’m in town to celebrate a birthday. I arrived at the hotel a few hours (around 1:30ish) before checking. I was greeted in a VERY nonchalant borderline rude manner by Frankie. She immediately greeted me with we only have rooms available without windows. I said I will wait I would like a room with windows. I then commented and said how can you have rooms without windows? Frankie then responded in a condescending tone “ma’am that’s how the building is made!” So then I asked approximately what time will the rooms be ready? Frankie, then responded and said check in is at 4:00. She did not offer to hold our bags, preregister or inform us of any of the hotel amenities we could use while waiting. At this pint the concierge came over and collected our bags, pointed out the restrooms and gave some suggestions for us to kill time. Meanwhile, Frankie had walked completely away from the desk and didn’t even verify our registration or ask for my name. She was rude and acted as if it was a bother for us to be here. Three hours later we returned to the hotel and we were greeted by competent friendly staff. The room is nice and clean with a window view of the Superdome. Although my initial contact with hotel a specific staff member was less than pleasing the other staff members were GREAT! Read less
