I've always enjoyed alofts, so I was very excited to get a room at the brand new aloft in Richmond for only $89. First, the hotel is extremely hard to find - it's behind a Whole Foods in the middle of a still-under-construction condo/retail development. Also, the parking area is not finished, so you have to park in a gravel lot.
After those minor inconveniences, the lobby is clean and fresh with pool tables, a small lounge, and a convenience store. The room itself is quite nice, too, with a glass shower, sliding bathroom door, coffee maker, flat screen TV, and safe. The shower has built-in Bliss Shampoo/Conditioner and Body Wash dispensers, so no fumbling around with (or waste from!) small bottles. The big thing I missed was a guide to the hotel - I could never find the fitness center! And, the walls aren't exceptionally thick as I could hear the housekeeper vacuuming the room next door and raising/lowering the shades.
Net, aloft is a cool, trendy hotel that will be even better when they finish up construction and get up and running.
