The lobby has mattresses stacked up everywhere ad they have started putting up interior sineage and other stuff. Have they announced an opening date? I could see a soft opening within a month.



Their website says September 27th, which is just under two weeks away.

^^^ @adr props our good pal for these wonderful illustrations.  however, is it possible for you to capture some front exterior building shots?  is it newly and completely painted?  how does the front entry look?  what about the ALOFT signage?  what about the glass on the windows?  so very many queries here, if you can, please help.....

^^^ @Urbannizer outstanding work as always urb!  i was really wondering about the exterior details of this structure.  however, the first photo shows a cleaned and shining exterior.  maybe it was power washed.... who knows?  the front entry seems beautiful from what we can see.  the third illustration's hotel room is beautiful... wow!  this is going to become one happening little hotel that downtown desperately needed.....

^^^ very nice pool ambiance.  however, they REALLY need to include more trees / potted plants and foliage.  the place just look's so devoid of plant life.  very dry / hot desert looking.  also, PROPS to all of the generous HAIF photographers for your great work in keeping us in the loop on this wonderful downtown development.

Just about done!  After they arranged all the patio furniture for the photoshoot shown above, they moved everything aside again to wash the whole deck, and today they positioned all the furniture again!  Bar still isn't quite ready yet, but the rest appears done:

Wife and I stayed here over the weekend. It was okay. nothing special. But for the price, I can't complain too much. But compared to other aLoft's I've stayed at i'm not that impressed. There is no signage inside the property. As a guest you have no idea where anything is. Every SPG hotel I've stayed at, includes a booklet or binder inside the room about the property describing amenities, area attractions, etc, except this one. The elevators have not been updated either, so as a guest you wouldn't know which button to push for the gym for example (I heard it's on the second to top floor but I'm not sure). The interiors are typical aLoft design. The pool looked nice, but the pool bar was not open yet.
