Modern doesn't necessarily mean nicer. The Aloft hotel has a unique feel that most others don't, but there are some design choices here that are just dumb. Modern design doesn't require stupid choices.
Examples: There are no trash bags in the rooms. So you feel bad throwing away anything remotely messy, and some pour soul has to clean the *trash can* for the next guest.
Also, there are no towel rods by the kitchen sink. The hand towels have to hang in the bathroom. For some reason.
The ultra-small night stands were inconvenient.
Are these all nit-picks? Oh yes, I am aware. But they're only inconveniences. Again, adding a towel rod by the sink or providing trash bags would not diminish the modern feel of the hotel.
Also our shower leaked water all over the floor, but I think the rubber bumper on the door was installed incorrectly.
The airport shuttle doesn't start until 6am, and was told to call a cab for any earlier flights. You'd think for an airport hotel they would offer complimentary one-off trips if you needed it.
Besides that, it was standard hotel fare. Decent staff service, and decent room.More
