I never stayed at this hotel, the reservation was canceled. I was never emailed a receipt of confirmation and was still charged $239.00. I called the hotel and they claimed a case needed to be opened rather than a refund for an unauthorized charge. Be aware. Check your account and receipts carefully

The service was horrendous. We made reservations several months ago with a wedding group and when we arrived at 1:30 AM, we were kept waiting at the front desk for 30 minutes while the receptionist kept leaving us to make hand gestures to someone below on the street. Then, in the middle of the night, we were told that hotel was oversold and were moved to a different hotel! The receptionist told us to stay there for the duration of the trip. The next morning, we were told to return to Aloft and to pack up and get our immediately even though I was just getting in the shower and my husband was working out. The manager of Aloft told us to check and store our bags from Noon - 4 PM. We needed to leave at 3 PM for the wedding! So, we waited for an hour and they sent us to dirty, dingy room. I jumped in the shower only to have the cleaning manager barge in without knocking to let us know the room was not clean! Duh!! All that was horrible but the worst part was the water pressure. The tepid water just trickled out. It took 40 minutes to get the soap out of my hair. No hot water. I have been to 100s of hotels all over the world but I rate this the absolute worst hotel ever!

The location is perfect. The staff is helpful and friendly. The restaurant / bar Caroline is great. The hotel interior is a bit tired and old inside and there was laundry and trash laying in the hallway for days. But our biggest problem was that we had no hot water in our shower for three days. Apparently it doesn't get up to the 27th floor. Be aware and ask questions before you book.

The front desk staff would never acknowledge you. They would all be standing there talking with each other and never look at the line that was forming. The only one that treated me with any decency was Tyler the valet. Every morning like clockwork Tyler had my car ready at 5:15 AM. Tyler was great to talk with made me felt welcomed as a guest at your property. Hats off to Tyler great job

I stayed two nights the Aloft Downtown Austin while traveling for work. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful at check in. They had overbooked and my room was downgraded from king to two queens, so they gave me voucher for the restaurant. Room was nice, was on 12th floor, not much of a view, but the room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. There's a coffee shop on the first floor and bar/restaurant on second floor. Additionally, the location is convenient right in downtown with easy walking distance to bars, restaurants and sightseeing.
