The hotel is situated in a great spot to walk to everything which was part of our criteria. Great staff accommodated our short stay. Very hip vibe hotel and busy lobby for a Friday checkin. The hotel bar and restaurant are very busy and the noise level is a bit up there. We came back for a late night bite...

We were only going to stay one night, but then immediately changed our mind upon entering our room. It was one of the cleanest rooms we have ever stayed in. The smell was clean and fresh.

The hotel room was very comfortable, but we looked at a brick wall from the two windows in our room (501). The bed was very comfortable. The standout of the hotel was its kind, helpful staff. Jose at the front desk was super nice and helpful. Breakfast in Beatrix was delicious!

I have stayed at this Aloft more than a dozen times and what makes me come back are two things: one, the Beatrix restaurant which is so freshingly diffrent from the average boring hotel restaurants at other places. Whenever I check in to the hotel, Beatrix is packed, and I can see why. The menu is creatively done and reasonably...

The rooms of this hotel are typical Aloft rooms, which I find to be very comfortable. Unlike most other Aloft locations, there is an on-site restaurant here (Beatrix), which offers delivery to your room for a small fee ($4 at the time of my visit). The real value here though is in the river north location. The hotel is less...

You get what you pay for. If you want luxury, go pay double at a different hotel. The hotel is in the heart of downtown. Walls are thin, we could hear the room next door pulling up/down the blinds. You can hear people in the hallway, opening/closing doors. But you're close to a lot of restaurants, Michigan Ave, and any...
