Amazing hotel if you need to use the excel center. Literally 30s walk. Pool/sauna/steam room was excellent and not busy. Room on 8th floor was amazing. View is terrible because they are building an extension but who cares. The room is two double beds and enough space to store two race bikes. Very comfy beds and pillows. Staff is extremely helpful. The bar area was a bit too cold so bring a sweater. We were able to leave our bags and bike to 7pm until our train. Would highly recommend.

Aloft is a bit expensive but it prouds itself for being a 4-star hotel. The bedroom and bed were very good and comfortable, as well as clean. The room service staff was lovely. However, the main reason for my booking was the swimming pool, as I wanted to spend relaxing time to celebrate my wedding anniversary. Turns out that there were swimming lessons for children in the afternoon, and the pool was significantly smaller than what it looks like in the pictures. Plus, the window glass "view" was to a building site. So anything but relaxing! I was not made aware of the swimming lessons at any point, either on the booking, website or by the reception staff when I enquired about the swimming pool opening times. Finally, the reception staff was not very friendly and didn't make an effort to even smile. So, for the price, I would probably go to a better located hotel or a cheaper one and a separate spa.
