How the Aloft El Paso Downtown stands out


My whole thing is finding a hotel that helps me become my best self.  Being in the heart of all the El Paso arts, restaurants, bars, nightlife, and fun is a hip spot.

That hip vibe touches everything in the hotel including the room furnishings - modern and comfortable.  Feel the vibe in the WXYZ Bar or the Outdoor Bar.

You can even venture beyond downtown for family activities, some nature time, golf, or the Botanical Gardens.

Then bring it all back to your modern and comfortable space.  Use all that energy to get yourself into your best self.



I researched the fees for the top hotels in the area.  This is one of the best.

Parking is $7 per night, check for latest rates.

Internet access is free.

There is no resort fee.

I don't like fees.  That's just the way it is.  Really, I do what I can to avoid them.

Here the fees are $7 per night.  That's about the lowest we'll find - plus we're staying for nearly free with points.

Why it's good with Points

This is a modern, comfortable hotel in downtown El Paso.  Lots of bars and restaurants are within a short walk - and you can even enjoy a drink at WXYZ bar or the outside bar.

A nice downtown hotel is a great way for me to find my best mood.  Go out and enjoy all the fun activities of the city.  Then come back to relax and recharge in your room.  It makes a great combination.


As for points, the most expensive nights rooms are 20,000 points in a King Room.

Get a Marriott Bonvoy credit card with a 100,000 sign-up bonus - that's good for 5 nights.  Book a stay of 4 nights and the 5th night is free.  That means you can get a 6 night stay with just one credit card bonus.  That's a lot of value from one credit card.

Works about as well to get a Bonvoy credit card bonus of 75,000 and spend $5,000 over time to get 5,000 more points.  All together that's 80,000 points.  That's enough for 4 nights plus the 5th night free.  That's amazing value with 5 nights from one credit card.

As always, have a partner also get the credit card bonus - that's double the points and double the nights.

Get a Marriott Bonvoy credit card and get on your way.

Sapphire points are worth 1 Marriott Bonvoy point.  They give you a way to get even more Bonvoy points.

Wait until you get your points with the Marriott Credit Card then get a Sapphire Preferred card.
