Great location!

Great hotel if you plan to see a show at the DPAC

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.

Huge room with a tiny bathroom. There were no soaps or lotions on the bathroom sink. It was too late at night when I checked in. So, I didn't ask for those. Luckily, there was a shower gel and shampoo attached to the shower wall. I used those in place of a hand soap.

Next door to the event I was attending and had a bar.

I didnt dislike anything. It was close to everything i wanted to do. I was satisfied.

Excellent hotel next door to DPAC...great for catching the shows!

I Liked bliss products and water in room. Water was expensive in cafe shop.

Nice and clean! I'll be back when the next Moogfest is in town.

Excellent experience with staff and friendly community. Well worth coming back.

The staff was very accommodating!!! Our stay @ Aloft Durham Downtown was a wonderful experience.

Nice hotel. Bar is lobby is lively and fun. Hotel staff was friendly and approachable.

Aloft is in the heart of downtown. Almost everything is in walking distance. The hotel itself is very cool, everything is very contemporary. The staff is exceptionally helpful.
