Aloft is a Starwood Property that is often referred to as “a vision of W Hotels” . Similar to W, Aloft has a string of trendy boutiques located across North America as well as Internationally and offers a clean and modern design that focuses on social interaction and functionality. JC and I decided to stay at Aloft during our stay in Portland, Oregon.
The service was friendly and efficient and although the room we stayed in was small, it was filled with plenty of modern conveniences like a spa shower, LCD television and a “Jack Pack” station which was useful for charging our phones and laptops.
Aloft encourages visitors to leave their room and explore some of the hotel’s amenities outside of the room including a pool, which is referred to as “Splash”, a breakfast bar, a cocktail bar, a pool table and plenty of seating space. Nearby and within walking distance are several shopping centers which consist of restaurants and a decent selection of places to shop.
