Hotel Review: Aloft Beaverton Hillsboro
The Portland area has a few SPG options, including the Nines hotel, which is one of the most gorgeous hotels I’ve stayed at. The downside to the Nines hotel is that it’s pretty pricey at times. Luckily, the Aloft hotel in Beaverton and Hillsboro was recently opened and still had rates of $104/night. As we were just driving through down and not making this our home base for exploration, the hotel was perfect.
Hip and cool Lobby
One of the best features of Aloft hotels are their really awesome public spaces. Alofts are a concept from the W hotels so you would assume that they will still bring that young millennial vibe. This hotel doesn’t disappoint.
It’s really bright and open with plenty of places to hang out. They’ve got games including corn hole and pool…
With an awesome bar with plenty of drink options. They feature a variety of Oregon wines and liqueurs, which I can appreciate. I always like trying new food and drink when we go to new places.
There is also an extensive cafe and snack section. Pretty much anything you could want is there, and the prices were not too bad! The presentation is absolutely gorgeous 🙂
Working on your fitness!
Want to make sure that you get a good workout in while you’re on the road? The Aloft has you covered. There is a sweet pool and state of the art gym to tempt you. It’s on the basement level, at the same level with the parking deck.
As a platinum member we got breakfast for free! The cool part about Aloft is that it’s a sort of made to order deal. You can make yourself a breakfast sandwich, a side (tutor tots in this case), a pastry and a gourmet coffee (latte, etc). The breakfast was worth $12 per person, more than enough to fill up!
You go to a hotel for the rooms, right? So how do these rooms add up? We’ve reviews plenty of Aloft hotels before, so the rooms are pretty much the same. This one does have one thing a little different though… our room has TWO king beds! Not double beds… but king beds. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before!
The pillows are a cool guy/girl design
The bathroom has a big walk in shower (no tub), pretty standard Aloft design.
Location and Price
The hotel is just a mile from the Nike HQ and a short 7 minutes from the downtown restaurants and shops. Rates are usually pretty low, as we got in for only $104 on a AAA rate.
I’m starting to really like Aloft hotels. They’re a good mix of cool and comfortable. If you’re heading through Beaverton, give the Aloft a shot!
