    Nightmare stay at the Aloft Soho Birmingham

    You can mark off your list staying at the Aloft Soho in Birmingham unless you want to experience the worst customer service and terrible amenities, all packaged in one. Back story is I addressed how a simple communication on the hotel portal and in person requesting a room upgrade became an indifferent response from the entire front desk staff to include the assistant manager. The unprofessional and apathetic lack of response was the worst for any hotel experience. The check in experience was no different than going to the dentist office, no formal welcome and no recognition for being a Bonvoy member. After one person told me my room upgrade would be ready they asked me to return in 30 mins. So I dragged the suitcases back to the car and came back and they said come back in an hour at four as the room still wasn't ready At 4:30 I returned and a different person told me she didn't know who I spoke with and said she only had one last available room. That room turned into a nightmare with a barking dog next door the cable TV going out and the loudest air conditioning motor I've ever heard. Needless to say it was sleepless terrible night. I escalated this incident to Marriott Bonvoy Guest services and they contacted the hotel management on my behalf. Even after I provided photos and video of the TV and the loud air conditioner I haven't heard back from the Aloft management after a month and a half. If you want this type of terrible service, feel free to book your room immediately.

    Such a great place!

    Great hotel in a fun area! My friend and I were there over a weekend for a girls’ trip. We decided to stay in Homewood because we wanted the ease of walking to restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques. This hotel fit the bill for that. Super friendly staff, from check-in to housekeeping services. I can’t remember when I’ve come across such a welcoming staff at a hotel. Our room on the 3rd floor was comfortable and quiet. The hotel provides complimentary coffee each morning, which is something I always love in a hotel. The lobby has all kinds of great seating options for gathering, a small bar with TVs, and a pool table/game area. I would absolutely stay here again, and I would recommend it to anyone.

    I'd recommend

    Loved the lobby of the hotel. Its very nice and they have a bar. There was a gentleman in the lobby cooking omelets for everyone, which was nice. They offer valet or parking in the garage. I don't know if I am spelling this right but a valet name Malaki was very nice and welcomed us. Front desk was very nice and accommodating as well. There are some great places to eat all in walking distance. I would recommend this place.

    Cute and satisfactory

    Not too bad. Picked this hotel pretty much at random. It was part of the Marriott chain, which is always good for point accumulation. And it was not expensive. We were pleased. Rooms were well appointed. Bed was comfy. Décor was tasteful and modern. Everything worked. Wifi was excellent. They had a nice “grab and go” hot breakfast that really hit the spot. Angle-in street parking was plentiful and free. Nothing fancy, but an easy place to hang out. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

    Nice hotel!

    Stayed here this past weekend. The hotel lobby is very nice and they have bar! We played some pool in the lobby and played cornhole. They had sports playing on the TV. They offer valet here. I did not valet but the valet guy Deshaun helped us with our bags. He was great. Overall we had a nice stay here and will recommend
