The only SPG hotel that is actually at Denver Airport is the Westin. Most ‘airport hotels’ are a fifteen minute drive away. The Aloft is one of those hotels. After an interminable wait at the airport, I arrived at the Aloft dead tired. In spite of my exhaustion, I still took the time to capture the simplicity of my favorite airport hotel brand.
Why I Love Aloft Rooms
Aloft is a spinoff of W Hotels. Like W’s, the Aloft has an amazingly comfortable bed. It also has a powerful A/C and a piping hot shower. Turn down the blinds, turn up the television, turn off your phone, and get ready for a peaceful night.
Aloft Denver by Day
Waking up at noon, it was time to do nothing before my late flight. The first task was caffeine. Though I’m an espresso drinker, I enjoy Aloft coffee. From there, I headed across the street. Near the hotel is a pizza spot, a Thai restaurant, Jimmy Johns and a taco cantina. I went with tacos but probably should’ve had Jimmy Johns delivered to the room.
I took a few more pictures to remind myself never to route through Denver from NYC regardless of how much cheaper it is to fly a discount carrier. But i decided to stay an extra night instead of my usual Delta which had obscene rates due to the holiday weekend.
This time, the airport shuttle came on time.
