On arrival there was a mix up at check in with the rates due to my error. A young lady named Brenda along with Jordan helped me correct the issue and explained there policy. I had to pay a little more then expected and due to time circumstances was happy to do so. Brenda customer service skills where remarkable not only did she go above to explain and help me reserve the correct room, she made me feel great about the decision to stay. Four days and she remembered my name and was friendly every time, not only did she do this with me but other guest as well. Detroit is a beautiful city and Mrs. Benda and company made my stay extremely pleasant. Gina made sure my vehicle was watched with no issues and ready all the time. The team pointed me in the right direction for all my needs and wants, I am just a little sad for my next vacation stay experience, just because the service here was so great till my expectations has been pushed to even greater limits, really you guys truly out performed on every level. I truly hope when people read this review they will understand the magnitude of great customer service and how difficult it is in these times we live in. "Brenda, Jordan and Gina you where amazing. "If I missed anyone by name Thank you as well, great job! Thank you "The Dixon's" Read less

I was looking for a little bar to go downtown and I stumbled upon this place and the drinks were great and the atmosphere was very inviting! I believe our bartender name was Chris and he was friendly and very inviting. I would definitely recommend this place!

We just stayed at The Aloft and loved it! Mind you with the pandemic we haven’t been out much lol, but this beautiful old building served us well! Rooms are super cool, and a good value, I suggest a corner room. Quite, spacious & tons of windows. Staff was very courteous, we felt safe, and welcomed. We would absolutely stay again!
