The facility was very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be that the rooms could use a couple of towel racks. There was only one knob hanger on the shower. Overall, it's a very nice hotel!!

The room was beautiful and comfortable with lots of extra design features that made me feel special and happy to be there. I only wish the fire tables on the deck had been operational. They were one of the main reasons for the booking in the first place. Still, I would return to aloft again when visiting Columbus. I enjoyed my stay.
