aloft Hotels

I was flying out of Montreal over the weekend and had a flight cancellation due to weather so had to stay the night at my own expense and fly out the next day. I had noticed a new hotel on the way into the airport and decided to give it a try. What a great find!

The aloft hotels are designed by the same team that designed the W Hotels. Same urban and hip design, but targeted at a more affordable price point and more "self-service" oriented. My room at the Montreal airport was $109 for two queen beds.

No room service or restaurant, although there was a little place to buy salads, sandwiches, etc. and menus for take out. The Hilton was right next door for a restaurant meal. The hotel had a bar/lounge area, pool, and fitness room. Free highspeed internet access.

The rooms have all kinds of great little details--Bliss Spa toiletries in the bathroom, great magazines, a huge flat screen t.v. that you can plug your laptop, ipod, etc into to if you want! Comfy desk chair, down comforter and crisp white linens on the bed, and cool retro alarm clock.
