Great location
We have used the Excel Aloft on previous occasions going back several years. We have always found the straff to be friendly and helpful. The previous time was before the pandemic and I couldn't help feeling it's starting to look a little tired in some places. The blinds seemed difficult to operate and didn't stop light coming in and rubbish in the communal areas (left by guests presumably) had not been cleared away. The frosted glass panel in the shower area is really annoying when your partner gets up for wee in the night and turns the bathroom lights on, illuminationg the bedroom. Then there's the placing of the sink, outside the bathroom when all the towels are inside - I don't get this. I guess a well paid interior designer thought this was a good idea. Rooms are very quiet. If you arrive by car, you can leave it there and easily go exploring in London using DLR and underground. We would use Aloft again for this convenience alone.

Room design needs improving
The design is new, but not too user friendly, e.g., lighting a little dark, should have one more chair in the room, TV can only be watched lying on the bed.

Very impressive. The amenities stand out here. A pool, sauna, steam room and a laundry room to name a few. This hotel felt like home. Convenient train service and a neighborhood in progress with a lot to offer. I highly recommend this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
