Bored with cookie cutter hotels? Behold the Aloft Greenville Downtown. Within this trendy hotel you’ll find dog-love galore: dog pictures, dog bowls, dog guests. You’ll also meet a friendly foster dog in the lobby who’s available for adoption.
The Aloft Greenville Downtown sits amid loads of dining, shopping, and culture galore, and is an easy seven-minute walk to the Peace Center and 11-minute walk to Falls Park on the Reedy.
The guestrooms are a standard king and two queens. A “splash” guestroom comes with a king or two queens, and gives ultra-close access to the pool along with a poolside cabana. A 650-square-foot Aloft suite comes in a king bed or two queens with a separate living space. Rooms have free Wi-Fi, a mini-fridge, an ergonomic work space, and a 50-inch flat-screen TV. Upgrade to a corner suite or views from the highest floors. Coin-laundry is also available on floor seven.
The property has a beautiful rooftop pool on floor six and a fitness center. Light meals are available in the lobby to grab food on the run. Onsite dining includes the W XYZ bar for wine, beer and harder drinks along with music, and small plates are available at The Ledge on level-four’s outdoor terrace. Onsite parking is available for a fee.

Visiting from out of town, this location was perfect. It is near nice parks, restaurants, entertainment, and shops. I loved exiting the hotel and walking across the path for breakfast at Tupelo Honey each morning. There was live music or a dj each evening at the hotel. The hotel was dog friendly, which I am not a huge fan but none of the dogs were an issue. There were nice amenities throughout the hotel. The rooms were small and the towels were hard. Customer service was very good. We were greeted with smiles throughout the day. Parking in the garage was no issue.
We booked this hotel as my daughter had seen it last year and liked the look of it and we were certainly not disappointed. Very good breakfast, very clean and only a short walk to Station for metro and buses. We had a fantastic 3 days.
