A trendy design scheme incorporating all the modern conveniences plus a 24/7 pantry and a vibrant lounge scene combine to make the non-smoking Aloft Birmingham Soho Square a real looker for folks heading to Homewood. The Aloft puts a bold spin on the traditional hotel scene starting with the open expansive lobby with a swanky bar where guests mingle over drinks and light fare and a 24-hour self-serve kitchen that offers mix-and-match meals specialty coffees and more. Guests can always stay connected with hotel-wide Wi-Fi and wired internet access available. All 111 non-smoking loft-like rooms in the five-story hotel are a study in contemporary simplicity with nine-foot ceilings and extra-large windows platform beds and minimalist decor. Each room has a 42-inch flat-panel TV with premium cable a plug-and-play connectivity station and a mini-fridge. Baths feature walk-in showers and upscale toiletries. Aloft's exercise room is well-equipped and the pool is a great place to refresh and unwind. The hotel three miles south of downtown Birmingham is about two miles from Vulcan Park Samford University and Birmingham Zoo. The Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame and the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame are four miles from the hotel. It's five miles to the University of Alabama-Birmingham and eight miles to Birmingham International Airport. our guests "love the contemporary design" of the Aloft Birmingham Soho Square calling it "very modern" with an "extremely customer-focused" staff and a "great location."
My only complaint was the mattresses were not comfortable at all and the sheets had a VERY strong bleach smell. Both made it hard to sleep. Everything else about the hotel was wonderful.

We have stayed at this hotel many times and are typically very happy with it. It is pet friendly. We often drive out of our way just to stay at Aloft for this reason.
Several restaurant's within walking distance, clean, nice mattress, refrigerator in the room, quiet. No pet cleaning fee and no parking charge, no internet fee are a big plus.
When we checked in there were no luggage carts. My husband searched 45 mins trying to find a cart. He went to every floor and through the two level parking garage. We reported to two staff members they didn't seem to care. We finally used a wheel chair to load up some of our things from the car. Later we saw other guest loading up the wheelchair to bring in their items too. The next morning when we checked out their two luggage carts were still missing. The staff member on duty still don't seem worried about it. Obviously a couple of guest kept the carts in their rooms. We felt the staff should have started phoning guest or knocking on doors to try and find the only luggage carts owned by the hotel.
