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.

Hotel was not up to par with photos and/or Aloft or Bon Voy standards. When we arrived, I waited for 15 minutes to get checked in since there was only one person at the front desk. They had no dog bowl or supplies like promised online (not a huge deal, but worth noting). Then, we went up to our room. As soon as we got on to our floor it smelled… Read more

They had no dog bowl or supplies like promised online (not a huge deal, but worth noting). Then, we went up to our room. As soon as we got on to our floor it smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. The hallways are dim and not well lit. Our room was not very clean, lots of dust in corners. The carpet is really old with lots of stains. We had no TV remote, and part of the TV was falling off the wall. I didn't event feel comfortable walking around without shoes on because the floors were grossing me out. We ended up checking out early and shortening our trip. Read less

Came here to drop kid off at college. Staff was extremely helpful from the moment we got there until the moment we left. They were very attentive to our needs and requests and responded promptly. I would definitely stay here again.

I got to New Orleans earlier than expected, my original reservation was at Springhill Suites at 301 ST Joseph street. I checked in here for one night staff was extremely friendly and very clean hotel. So I check out and got to my reservation hotel. The staff was rude I guess for me being from out of town.

I got to New Orleans earlier than expected, my original reservation was at Springhill Suites at 301 ST Joseph street. I checked in here for one night staff was extremely friendly and very clean hotel. So I check out and got to my reservation hotel. The staff was rude I guess for me being from out of town. The room they finally decide to give me had an odor and the shower was filthy, I asked for another room and was told they couldn’t give me another roo m at the associate rate I could pay extra??? I called Jennifer back immediately and asked to return to the aloft and I didn’t care what rate. Not only did she accept me back also gave me the associate price. I will be staying here every time Excellent service Read less

Great hotel within walking distance of the quarter. Front desk was polite and knowledgeable. Rooms needed some deeper cleaning but I understand the staffing issues in the industry right now. Would go back.
