I come to Detroit at least twice a month for business and I always stay at the Aloft Hotel. The staff is amazing but this past week the help from Lorans and Sparkle was above and beyond! As I checked in I found out that they were 95% booked and it looked like I could not get the room type I usually get. The look on my face was all they needed to… Read more

As I checked in I found out that they were 95% booked and it looked like I could not get the room type I usually get. The look on my face was all they needed to see. They made it happen for me. They understand that business travel is tough and make it as easy as possible. Makes a huge difference when you are on the road for work! Read less

The building is cool, but the food situation is bizarre. You need to pay for food at the hotel front desk, where there is no menu. So, go to the pantry/food service room, choose what you want, go the hotel front desk to order the food, and then go back to the pantry to pick it up. The food actually was very good, but....never again.

The rooms are a nice size and very modern. Beds are very comfortable! Its a 10 min walk to Little Caesars Arena and ur virtually across the street from Comerica Park. I would definitely stay here again. Read less

I just returned from a weekend in Detroit with my wife and two kids with a two night stay at the Aloft. The property is beautiful inside with an amazing restoration of a century old building. We were in a two bed room looking into the atrium. Beds were comfortable and lots of room to move around. There is a door to the toilet/shower, but the sink area is not private and the lights for both are on a single switch. All the staff we spoke with, including front desk and valet, were friendly and helpful. Centrally located and attached to the People Mover, you can be anywhere in downtown very quickly. We walked to Greektown in under 15 minutes. Would definitely stay again on a return visit! Read less
