    Had a one night stay with a group (four rooms) on 8/1 (this was my first experience of earning stay/night credit for multiple rooms -everything posted correctly within a few days :))
    The good:
    Location is more convenient than I expected easy 30 minute transfer to central London via DLR and Jubilee line
    Great rooms
    Very helpful and flexible staff
    Laundry room and swimming pool
    Reasonable hotel breakfast options (priced per item, in addition to the buffet)
    Provide information to order takeaways from local restaurants
    Arranged a reasonable car transfer to King's Cross Station
    Provided free water in rooms
    Platinum recognition, free drinks vouchers and internet for all members of group
    The bad:
    Limited toiletries provided (no toothbrush, shaving supplies, or hairbrush)
    Overall:
    Very impressed with my first Aloft stay. Will definitely consider this for future stays in London. Excellent value for money.

    I'd like to add: as a platinum guest you get vouchers for a number of breakfast items at the lobby pantry - quite convenient IMO.

    Other than the Heathrow locations this is the only starwood in London with reasonable pricing...

    How easy is it to get from the hotel to the DLR?

    IIRC, The hotel also offers a free shuttle service to Canary Wharf. The pool/suana/steam area and fitness area are actually not bad at all for a hotel in this price range.
