Aloft Hotel - 180th and Harney

Postby Joe_Sovereign » Mon Jan 30, 2017 11:02 am

There is a sign up for a new Aloft Hotel on the West side of 180th Street between Burke and Harney.

Aloft website has a page for an Aloft Omaha West opening June 2018. 120 Guest Rooms and 1500 sq ft of meeting space.

In Boston there is a new Aloft and Element Hotel accross the street from each other. These two hotel concepts work well together. It would be nice to get another hotel in Midtown. The Element is great, add an Aloft and then perfect.

About the 1500 sqft of meeting space...

This hotel is the closest I can find. So it's more like 3 small conference rooms, rather than event spaces.

I have stayed at 3 different Aloft Hotels. They use their ultra modern design to cover up for very small rooms and minimal amenities.

Aloft's price point is similar to a Hyatt Place but a Hyatt Place gives you a mini suite. A Standard Hyatt Place room has a small living room area with a foldout couch and desk, plus the standard bedroom area, and a regular size bathroom. Hyatt Place also includes free breakfast which is of better quality than a standard hotel breakfast.

An Aloft standard room is tiny, usually a bed and a built in desk and nothing else. The bathroom is tiny also with the toilet almost in the shower (no tub). No breakfast included and the XYZ bar is a standard hotel bar that you would find in any midrange hotel. The Aloft hotels look pretty and if you like modern design there is plenty to look at but they aren't really anything special.

Way cool! Those two existing hotels there are pretty busy.....so I'm sure another hotel would be great for that area.

I envisioned something like this. Give me an affordable, clean room. If the price is reasonable then small is okay. I'm just sleeping for the night. I don't need a ballroom for a hotel room. Especially if it has a polyester bedspread. Small, clean and modern.
