Located downtown, the hotel is very contemporary. I found it not to be family friendly. Parking close is very limited and the secondary lot is farther and has stairs to manuver through with children and baggage. The beds were very comfortable but lighting in the bathroom was sparse. This would not be our choice of accommodations when we return to Tallahassee
Up for the weekend and being a titanium Elite Marriott I never stayed at Aloft and never will again. People are nice , room is OK but beyond shocked at costs!!! I got a vodka and soda ($5), wife and daughter got a SMALL glass of Pinot Grigio each -$28!!!! Really?? Not that much in NYC!!!!
That is insane!! I’ll stay to the core Marriott properties, never Aloft again!! 850+ nights in Marriott and this is nuts for Tallahassee Florida!!!
Can’t wait to check out Sunday!!
