I hate to write a negative review, but I was not all that impressed with this hotel. It is in a good location, and has a cool vibe, but it was not very clean. My teenage daughter and I stayed there and our room was kind of "tired" looking. Carpet was dirty. There was something gross on the wall next... More

I stayed here with my 12 year old daughter as she was playing in a volleyball tournament on Bradford Beach. I got a good deal on a virtually sold out summer night in the city. I thought the vibe was very neat, even for us old folks and my daughter thought it was the coolest place ever! I did read... More

Our stay at Aloft was quite nice but I do have 2 small issues, both of which are issues mentioned by many other reviewers. First off though, the staff was very nice and accommodating. From the front desk to the valet guys, everyone was extremely nice and made us feel welcome. We did like the modern vibe of the place... More

I think this hotel should have a better recommendation score from the people. We stayed here for a weekend getaway from Chicago and had a lovely time. It was central to all the happenings (St. Patricks Day was upon us...we forgot about that) and walking distance to all of the great restaurants in the downtown area. I would stay here... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night during Summerfest. Great stay, great location! Valet parking of $20-25 was too high considering we parked our own car in the ramp kiddie corner from the hotel for $10 over night. Lots of nearby restaurants/bars offered shuttle services so took advantage of that for the 1.5miles to Summerfest grounds. Dinner at... More

We stayed for two nights in July, attending Summerfest and brewery tours. The location is great, still in downtown, but at the edge. It's a 30+ minute walk to the Summerfest grounds, with bars and restaurants along the way. Checkin with Vicky was great - she was very friendly and it went quick and smooth. We were given a choice...

I was in Milwaukee for the weekend to run in the Rock N Sole Half Marathon. The sponsored hotel was full when I made my reservation and the Aloft was the other hotel with a discounted rate for runners. My check-in was smooth and the front desk was friendly.

We really liked this place, but I can see why people don't: 1. It's very contemporary with a young vibe. 2. The bars are very close; we loved that! 3. The lobby was really cool-electronica playing through the speakers, lots of cool chairs and couches and a pool table. 4. Do not expect a traditional hotel stay. It's not plush-it's... More

The Aloft is a fun hotel on the edge of downtown Milwaukee. I suggest requesting a view of the river or maybe the courtyard, but if your room is on the street your view will be of a vacant lot. Unless you need a car, I would advise not renting one because the parking charges are fairly steep. We walked... More

The five story Milwaukee Aloft sits on the northwestern edge of downtown Minneapolis. The Hotel sits on the east bank of the Milwaukee River surrounded by roads on three sides and the Milwaukee River on the East. Easy access to the river walk, river taxis, and a miles or so from the center of town. If you’re here for one... More
