About Aloft London Excel

Trendy Thames-side hotel linked to ExCeL Convention Centre

ExCeL-lent location
Set in London’s up-and-coming East End, the trendy Aloft London Excel puts you right next to Prince Regent Docklands Light Railway Station and less than 2 miles from London City Airport. Direct access to the ExCeL Convention Centre gives the hotel a competitive edge.

New heights
You’ll be a quick trip from Canary Wharf on a free hotel shuttle service, and within a 10-minute cab drive of The O2 concert arena. If you’re not afraid of heights, why not gaze down at the River Thames from the Emirates Air Line cable car? The terminus is a 15-minute walk west.

High-tech hotel
Guests appreciate free WiFi throughout the hotel, one of many high-tech features. The indoor pool and 24-hour gym will have you working up a sweat in style. If a gym workout is the last thing on your mind, you might prefer the lounge bar with its Friday night DJs. The hotel also has a restaurant, as well as a 24 hours grab-and-go food and beverage area.

Plug and play
The Aloft Hotel London Excel’s loft-like guestrooms are designed for tech-lovers, with a plug-and-play connectivity station to charge your smartphones and tablet devices. Other snazzy details include 42-inch flat-screen HDTVs, roomy walk-in showers, and Bliss Spa toiletries.

Highly convenient for my purpose, inconvenient that I could not visit my friends room if on a different floor.

Parking costs!
Being open about the cost of parking would be helpful! Having the spend £25 for parking makes staying at this hotel more expensive!

Good hotel, avoid Thursdays
The Aloft is good place to stay generally with nice rooms etc etc. If you stay when there is no event on at the Excel, it can be for a good price, but if not their rates become unjustifiably high for the product on offer. I call this hotel greed. My evening was spoiled by uneccessarily high music volumes in the bar after a live band performance. I like loud music as much as the next man, but unless you've a speaker system that is good enough it just becomes a painful distorted mess. If i wanted loud music id have gone to a nightclub, not a hotel.

Aloft London Excel
Stay was very nice, staff could have smiled a bit more, but overall very good hotel. Only downfall is maybe location, especially if you're visiting central but its a but of a distance to canary warf as well, other than that, fantastic hotel.
A Traveller, gb2 night trip
Aloft London Excel
A good place to sleep but not much to do.
Disappointed with the facilities. Pool was out of service again, which is frustrating as there is so little to do at the hotel without it. The TV is terrible as there are no films and very few channels, aside from lots of different news channels. This just leaves the bar and the gym, which is a poor choice when the hotel is situated in area with little or no shops/cinemas and other forms of entertainment. The restaurant produces good quality food but lacks variety. Could benefit from a daily specials menu, which would offer more variety.
