Aloft London Excel
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
In the (Dock)land where chain mediocrity or bland corporate efficiency prevails, Aloft – a cheaper option from the swanky W chain – is refreshing. Outside, the design is rather cool, a swoop of shiny surfaces with charming coloured lighting; inside, service is winningly offhand. Shove your credit card into the self-check-in and your key card is dispensed, giving you access to the upper floors by lift, where further funky lighting guides you to your room (nicely finished, masculine decor; remote keyboard to operate the telly; free Wi-Fi; decently appointed wet room). Your card also gets you into the pool and gym, while careless packers have a coin-op mobile phone charger in the lobby. Aloft is right at the exit from the ExCeL convention centre, so Friday night in the bar-diner is lively with post-convention hair being let down.
