Fun Things Visits Aloft Hotel in National Harbor MD

Recently, my family and I traveled to Washington DC to visit the sights and we stayed in the Aloft hotel in National Harbor Maryland, which is about 20 minutes outside DC. When we arrived at the hotel and walked in we were a little confused but quickly realized that you had to take the elevator to the second floor to check in. We were warmly greeted by the Aloft staff saying Aloha. After a quick check in we took the elevators to our room. My youngest noticed the floor of the elevator changed colors when you stepped on it. This entertained them every time we were in the elevator. Our room was very clean and roomy for a family of 4. Aloft hotels is a new high-design/low-cost brand from Starwood Hotels & Resorts. The hotel and rooms are designed with natural materials and textures like cork and wood, with loft-inspired, 9 foot high guest rooms, state-of-the-art technology, modern amenities, and signature “r & r” beds.

The pool area was nice and easy to get to from our room. It was very open and airy. The pool is not open all day it opens for a few hours in the morning and then a few hours at night. There is a lifeguard on duty and towels are provided (one less thing to pack).

They also have an outdoor area that has a fire pit to keep you warm on the cold nights. This also allows you to look out at the Harbor Area too.

Overall the hotel is very family friendly. There were quite a few families that were there the same time we were. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We were given a free upgrade on our room during our visit. The review is our honest opinion and true experience.
