So imagine my surprise as I entered the room for the first time to a wall of shelves and a sink? Not what you would expect when you walk into a hotel room but the modern and smart design of this room was apparent the second I walked in. Everything in the room had its place and it didn’t feel cramped or squished. There was an air of luxury, style and funkiness about the room and I don’t know how to describe it with words.
This is the vision of the Aloft hotel part of the Starwood Hotels and Resorts chain which is best known for its brands like Westin, Sheraton and W Hotel. The ALOFT is a funky, fresh, contemporary hotel which appears to be designed with convenience and a social vibe in mind.
Location – Vaughan, Ontario Canada
The ALOFT Vaughan Mills is conveniently located just steps from Vaughan Mills shopping mall and a minute away from Canada’s Wonderland. Business travellers will find its location next to the major Highway 400 and within one of Vaughan’s largest business districts a huge convenience. The proximity to the regions’ many banquet halls and conference facilities are also a huge bonus.
This boutique hotel style room includes all the extras. The easy to use electronic key is awesome as you enter your room with just a wave of the card. The interior is a modern design, with every square inch of the room utilized for storage, bathing, working, relaxing or sleeping. A unique open concept shelving system includes a clothes hanger, laptop sized in-room safe and a place to make coffee which is also provided. In front of the shelves a modern sink and countertop with Bliss Bath products and below a hairdryer and refrigerator. Like I said everything has its place! The toilet is located in a small area with a sliding door for privacy, and a large glass walled shower is also located here. Bliss bath products in the shower include all-in-one shampoo and conditioner and a shower gel.
Behind the storage shelf is the bedroom area of the room. A small desk sits under a window with a daybed in the middle. The bed in my room was a comfy king size bed, with crisp sheets and awesome pillows. I had a great night’s sleep! The room was decorated with funky modern art and a cool retro alarm clock radio.

Nah, it was average. My veal parm had tomato sauce that tasted like it came from a can/jar. My dad's seafood skewer and rice were too salty and my mom's salad was dry.
