8.4.Very Good.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    Average at best.

    Lobby under renovation. $17 per day for parking. Not to welcoming at check-in. Wasn’t made aware of amenities that the hotel offers. Location is downtown near the theatre district, however everything is closed on the weekend in the immediate vicinity. Hotel staff unaware of nearest convenience store or pharmacy. 10th floor skyline view is of AC units. Poor water pressure and the shower pan felt slimy. Sound travels a lot at this hotel we found.

    Cool vibe and great rooftop bar....overall room was "cold" feeling and basic. Water pressure and water temperature needs to be hotter to remove the cold. Pillows are way too soft. Nice hotel in downtown Buffalo however the price to experience did not have the value for the cost paid.

    Great room, COVID service reductions.

    The king suite was very spacious and comfortable with a great view to Lake Erie. Love that they are pet friendly. The hotel seemed to be functioning with a skeleton crew, meaning that there was only house keeping by request and that public spaces could have been cleaner.

    Great, sizeable rooms. Fantastic views. Lovely shower. Hotel lobby smells like a dumpster. Desk attendant said it was the restaurant. Yuck. Obvious marijuana smell in hallways. Management is aware of these two issues as evidenced by other reviews but prefers not to act. Fun location with lots of restaurants nearby. Easy access in and out for dog owners. Property is not to the standards I would expect from Aloft.
