I was targeted & robbed of all my belongings left in a hotel room by what appears to be a team of employees at a Marriott property in Houston TX. This was my first airline flight in a year then checked into the Aloft hotel downtown. I had a large pelican case of equipment, a camera bag & several laptop bags. About 20 minutes after checkin, two people from housekeeping entered my room without knocking. After seeing me, I was told they needed to replace the towels that didn’t appear to need replacing. I did find it odd neither employee was wearing a mask as the hotel has ample documentation throughout the hotel/online about obeying pandemic safety & there is a no-housekeeping policy during guest stays. Anyways weird, but I left the room for my meeting. Three hours later returned & entered the room. Took about 30 seconds to realize something was off. The cloths I laid on the bench weren’t there. For some reason a diet coke I had put in the mini fridge was now on the counter & my dopp kit was dumped on the bathroom sink. The only thing still in the room was some scattered trash. Again weird, but maybe housekeeping moved it?? Go to the front desk & ask where my stuff is. The person at the front desk has no idea & insinuates I misplaced it or must of left my door open. Now I am concerned & ask again if someone entered the room & removed my belongings. She makes a call, goes in back, comes back to say we don’t have your stuff & must be mistaken. Now I realize Ive been robbed, that’s weird & frightening! The hotel staff runs a program on the keypad, I mention the odd run in with housekeeping. They show me the keypad report, there was an entry to the room by housekeeping at 4:30PM. I interrupt and reconfirm that my I left the hotel at 3:10PM and returned about 6:30PM, that was not while I was there that housekeeping entered the room. The keypad report was immediately pulled away. The hotel desk clerk is giving me the same message repeatedly, just saying we cannot provide any info, a manager will have to contact you within 24 hours. The police are called, a police report is filed. I don’t want to stay at this hotel & leave. Walk a few blocks trying to figure out where to go and what do, find another hotel but it costs twice as much as my previous room. After dinner, went back to the scene of the crime to ask if they had any more info. The desk clerk walked to the back then came out with two bags and handed them to me. Some items have been returned without barely a word but not all of them. The next day no one from the hotel contacts me. I had been trying to call the hotel all day, but the phone would just disconnect. I was supposed to be in Houston 3 days, instead flew back home after 1 night. Before going to the airport, I went back to the hotel. Asked if they found my missing item & why a manager never contacted me as promised. Without missing a beat the clerk said, we cannot provide any info, a manager will have to contact you within 24 hours. The desk person just said it was a new employee who went into your room. EXCUSE ME? You do have the information of how this happened & are willing to acknowledge this incident? The desk clerk then returns to the line, we cannot provide any info, a manager will have to contact you within 24 hours. The lack of a response or acknowledgement of this threatening event is mind boggling & upsetting while trying to maintain patience throughout the past week. As of Friday this is now the 5th day since the incident and no one from Marriott or the Aloft hotel has contacted me.

The room was worn and poorly designed. Sliding door in bathroom provides no privacy. Several items loose or falling apart. The doors were dirty. The roof top pool was way smaller than it appeared on the pictures. Like seriously only a few can get in at a time. Also no where near as nice, the furniture is worn. The clerks were not the friendliest. I would not stay here again.

My family chose this hotel for its location so we could celebrate my son's birthday at the aquarium then spend the evening swimming with the kids. Around 7:00 a DJ was blasting sexually explicit, violent and misogynistic music right next to the pool. 4 women were taking turns twerking, rubbing their faces in each others' butts, etc. I allowed my kids to swim a bit anyway (we had come in from out of town, after all), and they gamely tried to ignore the appalling visual and auditory assault. I watched at least 2 other families come up to swim, but bail shortly due to the offensive atmosphere. I went to the front desk to complain. Desk clerk told me guests are allowed to bring bluetooth speakers to the pool. I had to explain to him that it was a full PA system. Clerk told me it was not the hotel's DJ; it seems the strippers had brought their own DJ. The speakers were sitting right on the bar and pointed to the pool. The bartenders and hotel staff did nothing to stop the twerk-fest, despite there being 12 children under the age of 12 in the pool at one point. Clerk said he would take care of it and texted someone on his phone. My wife and I returned to the rooftop 30 minutes later to find the scene unchanged. I returned to the desk and asked to speak to the manager this time; the clerk was the manager. And he seemed incapable of restoring any order to the pool area. Said bartenders were contracted and not hotel employees. I shouldn't judge a hotel by the quality of the guests, but I do judge them on their unwillingness and inability to keep the pool from becoming a strip club. Aloft allowed 5 trashy guests to take over the rooftop pool for at least 3 hours on an otherwise beautiful summer evening. On another note, the lights above the beds flash on and off, no towels available in pool, and the only chair in the room is a stiff armless office chair. Really bad experience.

This is a sad, shallow silly hotel. The so-called interior design of the rooms does not look cool unless you are also a shallow silly person. Want a place to hang towels - out of luck Want a place for two people to sit in a two person room - out of luck. There are plenty of square feet for these things, but the shallow silly designer had a higher esthetic. Oh... and the breakfast advertised everywhere? Not available. As you ride the elevator, looking at pictures of hot eggs, those aren’t for you. They are a memory, or maybe a goal. Need a room safe? We have one but it doesn’t come with batteries. Also... no parking, no valet, no bellman. Shlep you own stuff and park elsewhere. Did you have expectations of a Marriott branded property? You are a sad, silly person.

I just checked in about an hour ago , after spending an hour trying to find a parking place to leave my car . After all , the hotel offers no parking for guess , don’t let the web page get you , it is a lie . The front desk personnel don’t even know how to help ... they send you everywhere but all parking garages are closed in downtown , I found one my self just by coincidence ... terrible service . A block away there is one garage open 24 hours .. let’s see how much will be the cost after a 3 night stay ! A terrible experience like never before at any other hotel in the world . Very frustrating and upsetting to check in at 11 pm after a 9 hour drive just to find that there is no such valet parking at the hotel ... misleading info . Room with a window leading to a concrete wall .... not good
