OK, so I stayed at an Aloft hotel for the first time the day before yesterday. I guess this new chain targets a different demographic.... but the extreme high volume music in the lobby and elevator was just too much. The style is very young and chique..... although the colors are kind of loud. This was the San Antonio Airport property....and perhaps my most important complaint was the gross under-staffing of this place.... everything that needed a little human interaction involved a wait time... the front desk was manned only by 1 (one) associate..... checking in took a 15 minute wait..... then my key didnt work.... another 10-12 minute wait.... heck, I realize this is not a full service chain and they want to remain profitable.... but Starwood does have a minimum standard to keep, or...? By comparison, Four Points properties that Ive stayed in dont seem to be starved of staff.... all my latest stays have been quite different. I realize that I need to schlep all my bags by myself, but I honestly cant understand the stingy front desk staffing thing...... Am I getting tooo old.....?
