Very cool and different

This hotel has a different look and feel than almost any other typical chain hotel, and we really like it. It has a clean modern look, the service is very friendly. Our package came with food vouchers and the breakfast selection was great. They had grab and go things like fruit, power bars, yogurt, and juice, and you could get made to order sandwiches and wraps. The view was nice too. We'll look for an Aloft again.

Enjoyed my stay at this informal, smart and relaxed hotel. Clean, tidy and functional room which served me well through my jet lag and good wifi to work with in the early hours. Its in a good location and comes across as being trendy and comfortable. Staff at reception were helpful and a nice open bar with good seating to relax helps the ambience. Close to other restaurants and not far to the amazign city of Washington. Really enjoyed my stay - thanks
Pleasant modern experience

We were impressed by the smart design of the hotel and rooms. The room had conveniences including: free wifi, connectivity between mobile devices and the room AV system, and plenty of outlets for charging. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had good pressure. The friendly energetic staff especially Chris who gave my wife and I drink vouchers, Tanya and Nate at the Hotel bar where we used those vouchers and Marvin who made checkout a smooth experience. Additionally I lost my credit card and Roxy called my room to tell me she was holding it at the front desk. The staff at this establishment goes above and beyond to make the experience smooth and pleasant. I would definitely stay here again.
A real gem!

my husband I stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting Washington. First impressions were great, Chris on the desk was very polite and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Parking was convenient and I thought well priced at $13 a day. The room was beautifully appointed. Clean, fresh and had everything we needed. It is right in the hustle and bustle of National Harbour but we were never disturbed by any noise. We made use of the free shuttle to the nearest metro station ( Kings St) in the morning and in the evening it was lovely to get the ferry back from old town ( which if you get the metro back to Kings St stop, and then walk 30 minutes through the beautiful old town will bring you to the ferry point. You can get the slow boat home which is a lovely way to end your evening ( the last one is at 11:30) I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. It isn't too far from DC and has lots going on in the vicinity. Staff are lovely, rooms and stylish and immaculately clean. All round a big thumbs up!

This was my first stay with this chain and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised!! I loved my room which gave me a great view of the "Awakening" and the Harbor! I loved the fact that although there was traffic outside, I couldn't hear it - not unless a very loud Harley went by :D. The decor was, as others have stated, minimalistic, which I found refreshing & edgy! I liked it!!! The staff was very helpful and pleasant - and that was everyone I came into contact with during my week long stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone! Basically, you can park your car and not touch it again until it's time to leave! Everything is in walking distance! You can't beat that!!!! Would definitely stay again!!!
