The staff are easy going and welcoming. Check in is fast and within minutes you're ready to have drinks or a road of pool near the colorfully decorated lobby that simply cheered up my day immediately. The rooms are well designed featuring everything necessary, modern and well-arranged.

Lobby area was nice with lots of areas for small groups to gather and socialize/work. Free pool table and attentive bar tenders made it for a nice evening to wind down after work. Room was clean and comfortable. Some maintenance was ignored (cracked toilet base but no noticeable leak). I'd stay again.

Staff are friendly but the hotel is noisy and dirty. At night the halls are lined with garbage bags and leftover takeout food, the carpets need to be cleaned, and the rooms are pretty worn. Have stayed I many Aloft properties and the beds here are not the same, very uncomfortable. Agree with others here the location is covenient to... More

Pretty average overall experience. There is Valet Parking only--$25. We were there for a night out downtown, so the proximity of the hotel was perfect. The room was on the small size, but was just fine for the two of us.

Good hotel if you want to visit the nearby businesses. The rooms are contemporary and serve the purpose of a business traveler. Wouldn't recommend having anyone visit you at then hotel for dinner. There is a nice lounge in the lobby but the music does tend to get a lil loud. The bathroom/shower does feel claustrophobic and the refillable shower... More

Typical Aloft experience - great service and energy. The location is excellent - but requires valet parking only ($25 per night). Rush to reclaim cars in the AM but the staff scrambles and makes it work.

As far as "boutique" hotels go, this one was pretty average although I can't argue with the price and the location to several good bars and restaurants. Parking will cost you $25/night and is really the only place that's close to do so. The front desk when checking in was moderately helpful. We told them we were there on our... More

Nice front desk staff and a comfortable lobby bar. One of the beds and the floor next to it had giant blood looking stains which was a bit off-putting. Otherwise, it was a Fine hotel for a one night stay.

I live in Milwaukee and I have found Aloft to be a smaller hotel with a wonderful staff. I recommend all my vistors stay. Clean, comfortable and if you want to spend a few more dollars the view of the river views are incredible, the hotel actually sits on the river edge. Great bar and a few steps to all... More

I would have given it 5 stars if parking wasn't $25...I also didn't see the parking fee listed when I booked through Trip Advisor or I would have booked else where. They offer $10 parking for self parking, but the parking lot is not on site.
