The bartender, Amelia, made amazing drinks. She was one of the highlights of our stay. She made us starwberry margaritas all evening after a couple suggested it through the bar, they were simply fantastic.

I was there March 13 -15. My wife is very picking about clean rooms so it takes me a while to find a place that I will not here the complaints about everything that is wrong with it, she checks under the matrass sprays everything down with disinfectant, now you know what i am dealing with, The Aloft was very clean, the staff was on top of every request, the king bed room on the 9th floor was small but livable, the security was pleasant because your keycard only works for the floor that you are staying on, the view was great. If I have to come back to Detroit, I will look into staying here again. FYI valet parking is not an option at 35 a day but as much as you need to leave and come Read less

When is a delicious breakfast sandwich not just a sandwich? When it is handed to you by this wonderful smiling (even though she had a mask on I could tell) woman. She brightened my day. Now I hope to that for someone else. Oh and the lady that took the order was wonderfully nice. Good job Aloft! Kevin
