First review
The Aloft Phoenix-Airport Hotel is a midrange, stylish hotel located a couple miles from the Sky Harbor Phoenix Airport. The Aloft has 143 rooms, 6 floors and was built in 2009. The rooms here have an edgy contemporary design and are on the smaller side with either one or two beds. The hotel is nonsmoking and accepts pets. Parking is free.

The Aloft is located in a business park, remote from the nightlife and culture of Phoenix. There is a light rail stop across the street and it takes about 15-20 minutes to get to downtown. One can hear airplanes fairly regularly outdoors, but it was not bad indoors and traffic noise from Washington Street also was generally quiet. The pool side of the hotel is a better choice if you are sensitive to street noise. Food was available at night and for breakfast, but it’s more like food to go, such as sandwiches and snacks than a sit-down meal.

A hip contemporary design is the hallmark of the Aloft. The lobby looks more like a dance venue, a place in which to see and be seen, than a lodge to check-in with luggage in tow. With a full service bar at night, lounge areas, a pool table and lots of glass, the Aloft proclaims novelty and urban chic. But it is still a hotel and this is a hotel review not a club review. The hotel was packed on a Saturday night so there was little choice on room location. The second floor room was toward the end of the hall, so there was limited noise from other rooms. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Also, the AC worked well, but the shower did not drain adequately. It functioned but only with the water turned to a low setting. There was only one bar of soap in the room for the sink; the shower had a liquid soap dispenser. Front desk service was professional but a bit lukewarm and somewhat impersonal. Rooms tend to cost $120-150, which is a little on the high side but not off the charts. While the overall stay was adequate, this hotel works best if you covet coolness over comforts.
