My husband and I stayed at the aLoft in February 2014 for a weekend. The location is PERFECT and within walking distance to many restaurants, Water Street bars, and the Bradley Center. It's also super easy to find right off the highway. The staff was fine, but the rooms are quite noisy (even for a hotel) and the beds are... More

Sorry to hear it was "just ok" as we always hope to provide a more lasting impression on our guests. Can't argue with any of your thoughts, sounds as if the layout/design of the room is not what you... More

Weekend getaway to downtown Milwaukee to visit family and ALoft was the perfect location for the trip. The property and the rooms are very contemporary in design with a large lobby area equipped with game tables, a bar and plenty of seating to simply hang out. No room service but food is available ala carte for sale in the lobby... More

I stayed at the Aloft downtown while staying the week in Milwaukee for business. This was my first stay at a Aloft hotel, yeah it's a little different concept compared to most mainstream hotels, but it works. You won't find a pool table and doggie treats in the lobby of your average Hilton or Hyatt. The lobby bar area is... More

The staff at the Aloft was very nice, especially Johnnie who was accommodating and answered all of my many questions. It's nice when companies realize that hiring good people goes a long way and is a very smart business decision. I'm sick of crummy service and I really appreciated the staff's professionalism. The room was nice and it was just... More

Right after pulling up there were concierge service, this was nice. Then we were told it would be $25 to park our vehicle. We normally did not have to pay to park at our hotel. Then we arrived at our room. We could hear every conversation in every room as we walked past. Then the real noise started, children yelling... More

The Aloft Milwaukee is a newer hotel in downtown Milwaukee, overlooking the river and within walking distance of many of Milwaukee's attractions. There are several great Milwaukee restaurants within walking distance. The hotel offers a shuttle that can ferry you to other locations downtown. One very big advantage to travelers is that this is a pet friendly hotel with no... More

I had been leaning towards two stars, but most of the issues had to do with other guests' behavior, which I know is hard for a hotel to control. Other reviews have noted that this is a party hotel. I had hoped that wouldn't be true for us, but we were stuck on a floor with a bunch of college... More

I was able to secure a room for one night for a great deal considering the price of this hotel come summer time, especially during Summerfest. The room was very comfortable and certainly funky and modern. Bed and shower were both great. Sliding door to the bathroom provides minimal privacy if you have a mix of people in the room... More

My girlfriend and I booked a room at this hotel for a conference at U Wisconsin Milwaukee in Late February, 2014. We loved Milwaukee- great architecture, famously great old breweries, tasty brats and sausages, and cool night life. Unfortunately, we did not exactly love Aloft. The funky aesthetic is okay, I suppose, and best part about it is the clock... More
