I always feel comfortable at Aloft locations. All service staff including housekeeping were very friendly and responsive to a "Hello". In general the hotel and room seemed very clean and smelled fine. The bed was very comfortable and the linens bath etc were all in good order But due to some abuse by guests the room was looking a little worn. ie:Scratches in wall finish & headboard.
Decor & layout was unique along with a great snack area, billiards table & social areas in lobby area,. Friendly staff. Though clean lots of scuff marks on walls, stains around shower door hinges , and similar"long term" maintenance things is starting to give a run down appearance to an otherwise unique and fun place to stay.
There were no towels in my room. I called 4 times to ask for towels and got no answer.
Facility is quite old $ tired. Various things were missing or didn't work. Location is isolated, not close to many restaurants or shops. Staff did all they could to make up for facility shortcomings.
Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds, convenient to airport No continental breakfast
close to the airport very comfortable bed free coffee non smoking-supposedly some guests were smoking and none of the staff called them on it the entertainment system in the room required a special cord to connect your personal device, which signage said was available at the desk- the 2 girls looked at me as if I had 2 heads and could not find the cords
Nothing This establishment over the duration of four days charged my credit card four times after I had prepaid for the room, not including an incidental charge, totaling $360.00. The staff was not able to explain the charges, and could not get a manager on the phone to speak with me. According to the staff, every time I asked to speak with a manager, there wasn't a manager on duty. The staff would call the manager in my company and be directed to a voice mail, and leave a message. They do have a pool, but the hours of operation are slim. The pool is not open until 4pm when a lifeguard is on duty. That brings me to another issue, I caught the lifeguard smoking marijuana just outside the back door to the hotel (which is right by the pool). I'm not normally against people smoking marijuana, however, I do have an issue with it when peoples lives could be in jeopardy. Because of this experience, I will never stay at another W hotel.
The bar Room was dirty staff unprofessional
Check in was easy, no hassle. The room was nice, what you would expect for the price. The bartender was rude. No knowledgeable in the basics of bartending. No continental breakfast. Had to pay $3 for a basic razor
The hotel was quiet, clean and comfortable. The members of the staff were always courteous. Though we didn't play golf, the course appeared to be very well maintained. Upon arrival we were informed by the front desk that complimentary hors-d'oeuvres would be served in the "executive suite" from 5:30-7:30. We found the hors-d'oeuvres to be sub-standard.
This is a first class facility with an excellent staff dedicated to doing everything possible for their customers. Nothing.
Spa The Heat and Air. Need to be worked on. No one could sleep in the bed next to window. Froze or Burnt Up. Bad Conditions.
Good value except for restaurant.
Lobby and sense of a nice resort Staff not overall friendly, rooms small, TV small
The first room had bugs, the second room the AC didn't work, so they upgraded us.
Love the location and facilities!
Comfortable, ambiance, breakfast and cleanliness
The cost of the hotel was reasonable. This facility looked a bit dated
The price of the room. Can't think of anything.
Convenience to nearby destinations, a fairly rural setting with metro within 20 minutes. Smoking in next door room with smoke coming through our mutual door necessitated a move late in evening
stykish hotel, very classy. exellent staff; they really care for their guests. We had booked 2 rooms, but they arrabged to connect them: so this was great for our children. Breakfast is very very continental, but we now and then got some extra's in the afternoon at the 6th floor's executive lounge, so that made really a difference. Pool is enjoyable, quiet, relaxed. Hotel is set in a very nice golf-environment, and gives easy access to main roads to Baltimore and DC. Would all of you recommend to give this hotel a try! perhaps some of the days it seemed a bit too empty, like there were no guests at all.... we were here in the middle of July, though...
The bed was super comfortable! Loved the indoor pool + hot tub! When I booked the hotel it stated, high speed WiFi and complimentary breakfast. NOPE!!!!! You have to pay $12.49 for the WiFi and we thought the breakfast was COMPLIMENTARY but half was through eating and nice lady put a $39 bill on our table. I asked the reception "that I thought the breakfast was complimentary" they told me that only when you upgrade your room when booking it's free. Well don't be fooled because I was. My conformation says complimentary breakfast, but they told me my room did not come with it! The only reason I booked this hotel was it had great reviews and the WiFi and free breakfast. Let's just say lesson learned and I won't be returning!! If WiFi and free breakfast is a want like it was for me, this hotel is not for you!
Staff was incredible Elevator didn't go all the way to the top floor where we were staying
I loved the bartender at the hotel bar who closed both Friday and Saturday night. She was very guest oriented. There was also a maintenance man who was very helpful on Sunday morning. The staff was great!!! There were kids running around the hotel All hours...they were loud and tracking water all over the lobby since they were running from the pool and then into the lobby and then back to the pool. Develop a system to let guests know if large groups of kids are staying at the hotel.
Very cleanrooms, nice pool and gym facilities. Bartender using hands in condiments after blowing nose and eating a sandwich. Server in restaurant used hand too. Very gross! Pool area large indoor, nice area.
The staff was great. Very friendly and polite. Very good food in the restaurant. The availability of the shuttle to take people to and from the airport or to the metro stop was a big plus.
Everything about the hotel met expectations and the price was reasonable. The restaurant and bar are best avoided. Overpriced and poor service.
The location of the hotel with the courtesey shuttle with a five mile radius is excellent. The location is less than a mile from Arundel Mills shopping, Maryland Live Casino and less than five miles to BWI airport. The hotel check-out time is 11am, which isn't a problem, however they expect you out around 1030am. My wife and I were awake waiting for a weather report and knocks on the door from housekeeping began the barrage of knocks at the door, phone calls, asking when we're checking out. Respecting hotel policy wasn't an issue, but most hotels start the call thirty minutes after check-out not before. If we dined in the hotel for breakfast the outcome would've been the same because the restaurant is small and the staff is small for the amount of guest. They provided a breakfast coupon for the restaurant, but decided to pass because of the wait, so the staff was rude with the two following housekeeping members and the front desk attendant calling after that.
Well run, good facilities, professional service. An excellent value.
beautiful, well maintained. restaurants and bars good, excellent location. not. thing. beautiful.
We really liked our room and also the amenities within the room, the closeness to the mall, the complimentary shuttle and also the free parking. Very early check-out time.
The hotel was way beyond my expectations. It was the perfect place for our wedding anniversary. The customer service was great as well. The room was gorgeous with a contemporary look. Great location-close to the mall and every restaurant you could think of, but in a quieter location further down the road. Could be a bit noisy in the morning. Walls are thin and you could hear what was going on in other rooms/hallway.
Breakfast was amazing and our $15 (1pp) coupons covered breakfast. The inside resturant was really clean and i loved the fire place. The wings i ordered in room service were good but i have to order them crispy so they weren't super soft and their potatoe wedges are huge and were not what I was use too at all. On the executive floor they have a snack room for anyone on floor 7. The snacks were great: muffins chips candy sodas tea coffee hot cocoa water pretzels etc. the room was 255 for just one night on that level....the room was clean but small, the hotel is eco friendly. There are a few other restaurants within 5min of the hotel if you don't like the indoor or attached one. The room rate is over priced thats my only complaint. The hotel is over priced, and the walk from the garage to the hotel can be a bit much if you have alot of bags.
Affordable price. comfortable and clean room. Nice hot breakfast. Counter in the bathroom had an odd stain in the granite on it clearly wasn't dirty just kind of odd.
Very noisy from the jet traffic. Heat pump 3' from the bed went on every three minutes and ran for just one. Making a third party reservation deleted the free parking for our trip. Manager forced us to move the car to long term parking off site even after offering to pay extra....unbending. Totally unsatisfactory. I cannot recommend Hampton, they have lost me and my company personnel as a customer.
I was picked up at the airport by shuttle late at night and taken to the Hampton where I was promptly checked in with no problems. My room was quiet and restful. I was alone but felt safe and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was complementary and good. Everything was just what I needed. Nothing.
The Hampton Inn Baltimore-Washington gave us a free shuttle to the airport and back when we returned. This was very convenient and appreciated. No complaints.
The Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Donna, our van driver. The breakfast had lots of hot and cold choices. The fruit was fresh. It was a 5 minute drive to the airport.
Staff was friendly, rooms are modern and very clean. Super comfy bed and pillows
Room was clean, bed was a bit too hard for us but it is in a great location and property appears to be well taken card of. Very busy due to proximity to airport. Shuttle was prompt in pickup and drop off at airport. Day driver during weekdays of shuttle was very friendly and could teach front desk how to treat guests. Saw little hospitality from front desk staff. No welcome to Hampton Inn or thank you upon check out. It takes so little to show you appreciate your guests.
Great front desk person. Adequate breakfast. The facilities were tired and needed freshening.
It was clean, quiet, and their free shuttle was super convenient. Breakfast was good also.
The breakfast was wonderful. The staff was friendly. The room was dirty and outdated. The bed was a hard slab.
Great location, nice staff, and very clean. There are no charging stations in the room. They do not have USB plug-in stations so don't forget your charging base.
On site restaurant and bar. Decor was very elegant.
Friendly and professional staff. Could use some additional staff in the lounge.
Checking Out!!! Room not ready, Rude staff, didn't feel welcome, Polystyrene cups in rooms. Breakfasr area looked like a tornado had passed through. Foods not labelled. Staffs outfits needed an iron.
Very nice hotel and the front desk agent was very nice. The shuttle driver on the 7:30am shuttle was great very friendly. They need to cut the trees around the sign on the street. It was a little hard to see.
The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Pool did not open until 3:00pm. (Traveling with kids and main reason for choosing hotel was pool.) Cafe with coffee bar was closed. Very limited convenience items available for purchase. No gift shop. Room had very bright flashing green light all night.
Modern look of the room. Water in the room. The holes in my shower curtain. The stains on my comforter and wash cloths. Being charged twice. Calling the hotel twice to get a refund and still not getting it. Having to call the corporate office to be refunded. Not being comped in any form or fashion.
Clean and comfortable but a bit pricey.Shuttle service to BWI should be more frequent
I liked the bed the most.I wish i couldve taken it home!it was very soft,puffy and clean.Also very high quality. well food should have been included. even if it was more expensive but it would saved you the hassle,and wel trips with the shuttle for those who dont know Baltimore. it was free within 3 miles but i didnt know what i would find to see within 3 miles.(because i know nothing about baltimore)

Quick check in. Free wifi. The hotel needs renovations done. It's really old and it shows. There is NO way it should be labeled as a 4 star hotel. Parking was terrible. Staff not too friendly.
Was clean and a good loc for the airport When I booked online the price was different . Online booking was ---and when I get to the hotel their charge me ---Price wasn't the same
Great location The room wasn't as clean as expected
The staff and manager went out of their way to make our stay great.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Hotel started out nice then problems with people in hotel which staff had them removed.which was ok Room service was horrendous.the worse service we ever had.
Absolutely nothing, staff are terrible, rooms are beyond old and creepy, housekeeping doesn't even know how to make a bed properly, more like an old bed and breakfast! There was dirty pillow cases... Ewwww and towels! Worst hotel ever Absolutely nothing, staff are terrible, rooms are beyond old and creepy, housekeeping doesn't even know how to make a bed properly, more like an old bed and breakfast! There was dirty pillow cases... Ewwww and towels! Worst hotel ever
The hotel was convenient to the activities I partook in. This was not a 3.5 star hotel. The bathroom was not up to par. The shower had cracks in the tile and had mildew spots in the bottom corners
Proximity to restaurants, the airport and the mall for shopping. The friendly, knowledgeable staff is a bonus. Nothing that would keep me from not coming back.
Really should be rated a 4 star. Nice newer Sheraton, very clean driving and updated property.
Shuttle service Not having breakfast for free and it was expensive to buy given the quality.
The restaurant within the hotel was great. Really good food and service. The lobby was also very welcoming, and the rooms, as well as the hotel overall, were very clean.
The bed was comfortable and the room smelled and looked clean! I was impressed.
Comfortable, clean hotel with professional and helpful staff. Room keys got demagnetized twice during our two-night stay, bit of an inconvenience when carrying luggage and whatnot upstairs, then having to go back down. Staff were helpful and apologetic in fixing the problem.
I loved it. I woul be staying there again real soon, breakfast was great, I had a comfortable sleep everything was amazing
I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and cleanliness of this hotel. It was a great deal, the staff was extremely professional and attentive and the room was clean and comfortable. Definitely staying here again!
Very clean and comfortable.
Room was clean and close to the airport.
Welcome when first arrived. Good location. Good price. Room was well appointed, roomy and clean. Just right - bar, food, just the right size. Had to leave after the weekend.
I loved the cleanliness of the room and that it was large enough for two people to sleep comfortably. The furniture and room environment seems kind of dated.
Everything was okay so far
Clean room Quick staff
I liked that my check in went very smoothly and the room was pretty decent. We go no warning that maintenance was being down on the streets and we were going to be out of water and there was absolutely no parking. We had to park next door at the Hilton. When we called the front desk the lady told me I could park on the grass or something but there was no guarantee that my car wouldn't be towed because she didn't work for the Hilton.
All essential, very clean. The employed charmers.
Location. Cleanliness. Breakfast and Happy Hour.
Very clean hotel, seems to be newer. Large king room, great staff, good location to Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10 -12 min drive. So nice to have kitchen & fridge in room as you are better off cooking yourself than eat in Columbia, MD. Best extended stay hotel in the area. Only flaw of the room is that the kitchen could use a few more pots / dishes / utensils. We used it a lot as the dining options in Columbia MD are just depressing. The town of Columbia MD is a giant strip mall / shopping center / business park. Unless you are going for an event at Merriweather Post, there is no reason to stop in this city
i feel because we booked on line the room we were given was the worst available.first and second rooms were end of hallways and one was handicapped. then then next room had a bad odor we were told it had been thoroughly cleaned and the odor must be from that.t appears when we book on line we are given rooms that are the worst available We have.stayed a about 20 locations in the past year and windup with problem rooms booked on line many times.We were told on two occasions that priority rooms go to direct booking customers.When we book direct we seldom have a issue.I know are experience is a small sample,but there seems to be a trend .
Clean room. We had previously visited this facility and were impressed enough to return less than a month later. We make frequent trips to DC so was looking for a place to stay on a regular basis. Pet Friendly turned out to be a $75 fee for a one night stay. I have stayed at facilities and paid $15 but not $75! We have a small scnoodle that doesn't shed. I can't imagine what the $75 cleaning fee was used for. I would have preferred to have the fee disclosed on our reservation. I could have had a pet sitter come to my house for less money. Another problem was the heat - the room took 4 hours to warm up. The staff said this was normal and if it lasted all night they would compensate us. They said there were no alternative rooms available which I didn't believe based upon size of hotel and cars in parking lot. I think they just didn't want to accommodate people with a pet. Definitely not pet friendly.
Sonesta was beyond clean, the rooms were comfortable the staff were nice The complimentary breakfast was great. I just can't find any fault in it. I had the best stay in the hotel. The moment I stepped into the hotel I was like " I am going online to rate this hotel a 5 star after my stay" I didn't have a change of mind all through my stay. Nothing
this hotel was perfect! Me and boyfriend stayed here for a night for the Sweetlife Festival! It was our first time in Maryland. The staff was very friendly and very helpful, especially when we asked for directions to get somewhere; instead of just telling us where the location was they actually printed out directions for us. The rooms for very clean and very spacious almost like a mini one room apartment. The kitchen was a decent size they give you plates, cups forks..ect..to use. also nice seating area for when you want to just relax without laying in bed. Also it was nice that they had a shampoo and conditioner and body wash despensor right in the shower so if you forgot something it was right there for you!Also this hotel was located close enough to the city part of columbia but far enough to not be in the hossel of it all. also free breakfast! also the price was desent for what your getting! and check out wasnt until 12 which was lovely so we didnt feel rushed in the morning to get out of there! I would defiantly stay at this hotel whenever we go back to maryland. the breakfast wasnt the best. but you could always make your own if you felt like it in your own personal kitchen!
The price was reasonable. The breakfast was decent. The location was good. TV positioned good. the bathtub water knob was loose. The drain was not attached. The bathroom ceiling had splotchy paint spots. The refrig not plugged in needed assistance.
That we got to leave after 6 hours. the whole thing
I liked the location I liked the large shower (we were unnecessarily put in a wheelchair accessible room) **I didn't like the living bugs in the room: centipede, baby roaches, stink bug **I didn't like the broken air conditioner/heating unit. Heater only worked properly when set on air conditioner mode-- woke up in middle of night in EXTREME heat because the heater ran as if it was set on 100 degrees **I didn't like WAITING BOTH DAYS and FOR A LONG TIME on COFFEE in the morning. It was a problem for others as well. IN ADDITION, I didn't like that the continental breakfast set up on the 2nd floor the first day where the coffee was, but the second morning when no coffee was available again, we waited & waited, until finally the janitor checked to see where the refill staff was, to find out the new coffee was being served downstairs on a new machine IN A ZONED OFF AREA where staff said we could walk into (who knew? No one was there). The janitor asked the manager if he should take down the zone tape now that the new floors were installed, but she told him no. Not only was it was INCONVENIENT and RUDE that STAFF DIDN'T INFORM ANYONE that the place to get coffee was now moved to a different floor, and not even with the rest of the food, but that we also had to duck underneath the zone tape to access it. Very ridiculous. **I didn't like being woke up the entire night by some very heavy person above us doing exercises or something back and forth the floor about a hundred time. **Bedding and curtains and general appearance very outdated. **I didn't like that there was NO SINK SPACE OR ANY COUNTERTOP SPACE in the bathroom for anything.
The food was ok Everything, there was cigarette holes in the blanket, dirty floor and smelly pillows, this one member of the staff was rude, the place needed better lighting (looked like a dungeon), there was a plunger by the vending machines, the halls were too hot, the air conditioning was weak ( we had to set it to the lowest setting and it was still too hot) . one of the worst microtels i have ever been to, this place shouldnt even be a microtel by wyndham.
Front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. Run down room, milldued caulking in the bathroom
Great value, clean, friendly, no complaints A little down in the heels, expected more from the Wyndham name
Convenient location to the airport. Good breakfast with updated lobby area and pretty friendly staff. The room was small which was fine except it brought to light all it's shortcomings. The toilet when first opened had toilet paper in the bowl in a sea of dilute urine. The pedestal of same toilet was not cleaned in some time and came with dried urine splatter. The renovation work done to the bathroom looked very unfinished and elementary. Mismatched paint splotches on wall, sloppy grouting and caulking around and in the shower/bath tub and broken/cracked floor tile at its entrance. In the room, the dark blue carpet was dirty looking and in one place there were two paint roller marks of white or light colored paint. The immediate outdoor space...weedy grass that was not cut in weeks, beer cans, soda bottles, cigarette packs and general refuse in that grass and in the parking lot, weeds taking over the plant beds. It's the worst outdoor space of anyplace I've ever stayed, unkempt and screamed "we don't care".
Cheap and close to airport An internal issue cause them to not have my reservation when I checked in...thankfully a moot point though. The room smelled so bad if cleaning products however I almost couldn't sleep, that was the first time I've experienced that at a hotel. Definitely not staying at Microtels anymore after this.
Friendly staff. Quiet. Plenty of hot, steaming water. Air conditioner kept place cold. Airport shuttle available and schedule without requesting information. Breakfast was extremely limited and necessary items not available. Ice Machine was always empty. Pillow cases looked very dirty. Took some time for temperature to come down. Felt a little cramped.
Near BWI airport and car rental return. Near freeway. Near gas station. Nice building and surrounding. Decent free breakfast. Free and decent wifi. Decent room with a nice window seat. The hallway and breakfast room is warm, seems like AC is not running high enough. Room AC is OK.
Nothing Mold growing on the wallls horrible pillows dirty sheets. The room smelled horrible
Staff to include shuttle driver very nice and food was taste good. Room while appears renovated appeared, rushed cleaning ie lamp shades crooked, bed covers should be tucked possibly with chocolate and name of cleaning person; gives a personal touch. Possily use a fresh "clean scent" cleaning product; Just the small things seemed over looked but all in all good value for price.
it was a great stay
Not a single thing other than the location in connection to the airport. First and foremost, we checked in relatively early in the evening, but since we booked online, my wife and I got a handicap room. If that was not enough, this room has some flying bugs (they looked like moths) that were flying throughout. After asking to be moved to another room, I was told that no accommodations could be made. The bed was fair from comfortable and the bathtub completely backed up while showering. Not to mentioned, there were a number of what appeared to be pubic hairs that lined the bathroom floor. When I complained the next morning (we tried to leave but everything around us was booked in other hotels), we were met with very little interest in fixing the situation. From start to finish, it was the worse experience. I have ZERO desire to stay at this facility EVER again.
Spacious room Lousy routers and internet access
Great location for next morning flight. Easy access to airport. Quiet room.
Front desk staff was very nice. Buffet had a great selection.
This hotel had the worst service I've ever had. The overbooked a co-workers room, and charged a room to the incorrect credit card. The front desk service was impatient and impolite. We will not be staying at this hotel again.
Everything Everything was lovely I have nothing bad to say
Rooms were very quiet. Dinner fare at the restaurant was reasonably priced and of higher quality than I would have suggested. Staff were both professional and kind.
My toilet kept getting clogged and my tv wouldn't turn off and couldn't change the channel
easy check in close to highway into the city Clogged sink, very loud, poor appliances our iron and hair dryer barely worked and when asked about it they said it was functioning as normal.
The Quality Nothing.....
very friendly - willing to go the extra mile for you
Everything they were wonderful I didn't have a problem with anything it was all good.
Friendliness of the staff and cleanliness and Decour we were visiting your establishment from New York to attend a family funeral. The post reception was also held within your establishment. we were surprised by the elevated prices of the liquor in your restaurant..... we ordered 15 cordials...we were shocked at the $166 price tag that accompanied that order ...
The room was great I enjoyed the refrigerator in the room also
Clean room would be a nice view if we got there during daylight hours Didn't use any other aminiters.
The location was prime for my reason in being in Columbia. Very central to my family Let's see... I requested early check in and was given a room missing furniture (no chair, no refrigerator, no microwave, no bathroom toiletries), looked like leftovers. I asked for a new room. Housekeeping walked in on me nursing my 5 month old baby TWICE after a quick knock, once in the original room and once in the newly requested room (your front desk attempted to justify that somehow) . I requested a crib for my baby... 3seperate ppl came knocking on my door to see if I'd gotten it yet (I had), interrupting my nursing AGAIN AND AGAIN, the communication at the hotel was terrible. My husband was furious to hear of the numerous violations. Every day I was there, including the day I checked out, housekeeping made so much noise in the hallway! I had family come by to visit the new baby and they all commented on the volume of housekeeping in the halls and the confusion of getting to my room. You could hear their conversations through the door along with their laughter and banter. I'm never one to complain about a hotel stay but this trip was one for the books. I'm originally from the area, my husband and I just relocated a few states away to be closer to family and I'll be needing hotel accommodations regularly. I'm so disappointed with The Sheraton, I've always had a high regard or the chain but I'll be looking elsewhere, it's a shame because my family is within a 10 min drive. I should be refunded for the time I had with your establishment
Was happy to be able to get a B&B at the last minute that was so close to my destination. Staff was excellent. Mildew around tub
Front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast choices were very good.

Curtis was outstanding ! The two chi, Vicky and Andy were so patient and their omelets are to die for. I have stayed in many Embassy Suites. This was the best ! Need cranberry juice on breakfast juices. Fan for bathroom. Keep smokers away from congregating at front door.
