Stayed here over night for the first time for my boyfriends company Christmas party. It was such pleasant hotel. The room was a perfect size and it was so clean. The location of my room was on the first floor right down the hall from the party so it was super convienant. I'll definitely be planning to stay here again.

I prefer the Aloft to the Courtyard or the Residence Inn, mainly because of the better bar/restaurant, but the rates are higher so I often need to stay at one of the other hotels due to company policy.

The people were very friendly and always had a smile on their faces. They were also very fast in their service, not making me wait very much at all. The room itself was very spacious and clean. Overall, a very positive experience.

The room was large, a full suite with a King bed, seperate stand shower and tub. Gone are the little bottles of shampoo/soap, replaced with dispensers mounted on the shower wall. The option to forego the keycard through the spg app was convenient and worked well when I locked myself out of my room after heading to the WXYZ bar...

This hotel is very clean, and the front desk is friendly and accommodating. This is important when staying far away from home. Whether visiting for business or pleasure, this is a very nice place, that is neat, convenient and has all the luxurious amenities one can ask for.

This former W hotel, turned into Aloft, is a great option for your business trips to Silicon Valley; property is in excellent condition, quiet for optimal relaxation and most of the time very well priced for the quality; the only disclaimer is that in traffic hours getting to and through Dumbarton bridge can take time and it is also a...

Aloft Silicon Valley has very spacious wheelchair-accessible rooms, much bigger than those of similarly priced hotels. The wheelchair accessible room also has a large bathroom with a spacious roll-in shower. The hotel is also very new and a short drive to Ranch 99 supermarket, Starbucks, Chase, etc.

Being from the Silicon Valley originally, I think the name of the location is a little questionable. However, Newark is roughly 20-30 minutes from anywhere you will want to go, and while not in the heart of the action, offers great service and amenities that come off as quite chic and modern, which is to be expected of an Aloft....

The Aloft Silicon Valley is hidden gem. Bordered by regional parks and a wetlands right off of the parking lot, it's a nice retreat from traffic and hustle of the East Bay/Silicon Valley. That said, it directly off a major freeway that can feed you to anywhere you would need to go in the San Francisco Bay Area. Originally a...

This used to be a "W" and was quite the "hot spot" years ago. Now it needs help. They have deferred maintenance far too long. The air ducts were filthy. The bathroom make-up light did not work. And the refrigerator was room-temperature. All of these items were brought to management's attention but only the light was fixed. However the real...

“We stayed in room 530 which is very nice. I think this is not the BIGGEST room, but it has a nice few. Definitely ask for 5th floor as you would have a better window view.”
