It is my first time to experience Aloft.
Aloft in general does not have Suite nor club lounge. So it is true that many of Platinum (or above) elite members do not prefer this brand.
But this Aloft Gangnam has 4 wonderful Suites (2 urban and 2 river outview) with lovely private terrace. Even though elite members can not get upgardes to Suite as a benefit, the property provides special benefit which can be consulted with the Front desk.
Even without Suite upgrade, members can enjoy many things. Platinum (or above) elite members can also get free breakfast (for member +1 guest).
Location is good and the room rates are very reasonable.
Staffs are considerable and attentive (especially thanks to MoD, Mr. Jayden Kim for his top notch service.)
If proprty should be chosen in Gangnam area, this Aloft Gangnam is highly recommendable.
