    UNHOSPITABLE

    Staff was rude at check in. With hands full of luggage and bags, they refused to check me into my room until I walked back to my car and got a mask ( which I inadvertently forgot). When I asked if they had one I could put on , they said they could sell me one! NOT HOSPITABLE AT ALL..UNLESS YOU WANT TO PAY A PREMIUM RATE TO BE TREATED RUDELY, DON'T STAY HERE.

    GREAT PROPERTY AND AWESOME STAFF

    Aloft is a clean and modern hotel and the staff is helpful, friendly, and accommodating. I highly recommend this property! We arrived following a horrible flight delay at 3am. Jaylen was on duty and could not have been more welcoming and professional! He totally put my mind at ease and checked us in quickly and allowed us a late check out the next day as well! Good customer service like that goes a very long way!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great hotel, but…..

    The hotel was very clean and the staff were young, energetic and friendly, but the street the hotel was on was blocked off during the Durham Bulls games. It became much harder to find the hotel’s parking lot. It was also frustrating that the made to order breakfast wasn’t available on a day that the kitchen was supposed to be open. I still recommend this hotel.

    The location is perfect (basically in the outfield of the Bulls’ ballpark). Also in walking distance to breweries, bars, and restaurants. The American Tobacco Campus is across the street, and makes for a beautiful walk with many photo ops. The staff was so helpful and friendly! We would love to return.

    Durham aloft stay

    Great stay. Should not have to pay for parking. Most places offer free breakfast. You could at least have free parking!
