Aloft is a hip new brand from Starwood, the former REIT turned Hotel corporation, and is designed as a more youthful version of the W Hotels for about 1/2 or 1/3 the price.
It is nearly exactly like the hip new Elements brand, which is the same youthful, Euro like design of hotels for the Westin brand of Starwood Hotels. They are nearly identical in construction. I have stayed at both.
Once you get over the hip, modern college dorm/hi-tech corporate lunch room/ chi chi lounge without bottle service lobby environement and design architecture to appeal to the 20 and 30 something neophite business traveler, you realize that is just another 4 Points Sheraton in euro-japo-hipster decor.
It is different, so most people like it, especially if they don't know where they were when John F Kennedy was assasinated (not even a gleam in their parents eyes), or never saw Neil Armstrong walk on the moon on live TV (only on 20 year old videos), or if '90's hip hop and euro techno are the golden oldies for them.
There is no closet, just a cubby hole area with a curtain. Maybe that is the appeal, as most of the people it attracts had cubby holes in K-12 with backpacks and roller bags for books. None of the boys in their school offered to carry the girls books home for them.
The sink area is immediately in front of you as you open the door, but since the design is euro-modern fixtures, you can look past that as a cool, novel bachelor pad design element, and walk around the divinding wall to the studio/loft apartment like space.
The lobby is more like a cool multi-purpose room and arts class, with colorful lounge chairs, large group tables with bar stool like chairs, sort of like being in that suburban middle class school district art class making paper mache sculptures, or Silicon Valle technology campus in a group brainstorming meeting, while eating your morning cheerios.
At night, it can transform into a cool personal club, with the bar right there along with a pool table. All you need are some fresh 20 or 30 something hotties with Fauxhawk hair or Louboutin heels in designer clothes to party with you, rather than the overweight, balding, plumbing supply salesman from Albuquerque talking loud into his Budweiser, his wide striped tie 3 inches above his bulging belt.
