Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient location in Downtown Dallas
  • Modern, light-filled rooms with flat-screen TVs and large windows
  • Cool lobby with high ceilings, a bar, a pool table, and a 24-hour snack bar
  • Trendy loft-inspired decor
  • Outdoor pool opens early and closes late
  • Free coffee, tea, and water bottles in the lobby
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Rooms are on the smaller side; some have odd uses of space
  • Industrial-chic decor with concrete pillars and ceilings not to everyone's taste

Bottom Line

The Aloft Downtown Dallas is located in a historic building, and has a trendy, loft-inspired feel, with sleek, colorful rooms featuring large flat-screen TVs, exposed brick accents, and concrete ceilings. Rooms are on the smaller side (typical for a historic building) and the attempts to make the best use of space can be a bit odd -- in some rooms, the mini-fridge is located under the bathroom sink. Nonetheless, the hotel has become popular due to its outdoor pool, large industrial-chic lobby complete with a 24-hour snack bar, and overall value.
