Decent hotel located near the airport. Friendly staff and modern room layout as is typical of all Aloft hotels.

This place has been on my radar since it was built in 2009, but before yesterday I'd never been inside. The exterior looks like it's seen a few Arizona summers – I was told it hasn't been renovated since it was built – but the inside is still cool (literally, especially in the summer here). Hard, dark concrete floors, metallic fixtures, this place is going for a young, hip vibe. Above the headboards in the king room I saw there's a cropped picture of a turntable spinning bright red vinyl, if that gives you an idea.

Aloft Tempe is right of the 202 and close to downtown Tempe. It's also right across the street from an In-N-Out, so if you haven't been to the West-coast staple before I have two words for you: animal style. The hotel itself also offers food 24 hours, and does a-la-cart for breakfast. (Dollar for a banana, I was told, a bit steep if you ask me but I guess its convenient.)

Calling all Pac-10 college sports fans!

Do you want the perfect place to stay in the Valley of the Sun while your team is playing against Sparky at ASU?

Try the Aloft. It's decor is like a hip, trendy, bachelors pad, and their lobby is like a bottle service club or lounge (without the bottle service).
It is new, just opening in February 2009.

Here, when you get hungry, you can go across the street to In-N-Out Burger, and after that, go to YogurtLand for Fro-Yo, and what more could you want? Yes, there's a Starbucks within a 1 minute walk.

Oh, it is only 1 mile from campus and the Stadium, and close to the Phoenix airport.

Aloft is not your father's business hotel. It is designed for the younger, hipper, going-on-my-first-years-of-business-trips-crowd.

The rooms are like a city studio dwelling in design; Euro efficiency in space, trendy decor and colors like that modern furniture store in that trendy city neighborhood you hang out in.

But be careful, there is no real closet or dresser. Just cubby holes, a curtain to cover your clothes, but no real drawers to hide your drawers!

If you have friends visiting, hide your unmentionables in your suitcase. Oh, and the door opens right into the bathroom sink, so when you are nude, brushing your teeth after a shower after 8am, try the deadbolt and lock so the maid doesn't walk in on you butt naked! (Unless she is cute and you're an exhibitionist!)

The gym is nice with all new machines, the pool area is like a fancy desert party pad, and the lobby common bar area is like a Vegas lounge, with the bar as the main feature, 4 small TV screens, and a pool table to shoot around on.

Aloft is exactly like Elements, the other new hip, trendy chain from Starwood.. Aloft is the new younger demo chain for W Hotels, and Elements is almost exactly the same and is the younger., hipper chain for Westin. They are all owned by Starwood hotels, ergo the similarities.

But don't expect food. They have snacks, like 7 Eleven or Egg McMuffins; and they offer a free hot drink for Gold and Platinum Starwood frequent guests. Big whoop! (They do have a self serve latte machine). They do offer free WI-Fi though, and free parking here. Neon lights on the sides of the building, too. No charge. Haagan Daz for late nite snacks, too.

Pricing is reasonable, in the $100 - $150 range, depending on season, location and availability. Most Alofts are in the east. So far there is only one in California and 2 in Arizona.
