While this hotel has real convenience for going out on Water and Old World Third streets, the room looked very cheap. This place is only a few years old and the quality is very poor. I stayed in a room where the beds were uncomfortable and the bathroom, which had a sliding door, left nothing to the imagination in the... More

this was very much like other Aloft hotels I've visited. It's comfortable and nicely laid out. In general, it's better for a person traveling alone than a couple or family, as anyone using the bathroom is going to light up the entire room if they switch on the lights. The desk could have a few more of the promised 'free... More

I like this concept, but this Aloft more than any I've stayed at felt like a dorm - materials, design, the little curtain over the closet in the bath . . . but a functional, roomy dorm room. I was upgraded to a suite which is actually a little silly if you don't host meetings - the suite is a... More

I was in town to do a client photo shoot in downtown and needed a good hotel to stay at. As a Starwood Preferred Guest member, I was looking for one of their properties. The hotel was located at the edge of downtown and walking distance to everything. Here are some of the highlights: Pros: - Clean and newly renovated... More

This Aloft is pretty much like the others. Very modern hotel with great amenities and a lively bar scene. They have a cool patio and pool. The location is not far from other attractions. The rooms are nice and clean and service is good.

This was my second stay at an Aloft property and I'm a big fan. There's just such a cool vibe to this brand. We were in Milwaukee for my college reunion. The hotel is a little bit north of the main downtown area but an easy walk to everything the Old World Third Street neighborhood has to offer. The staff... More

I've stayed in Starwood's Aloft concept in a few cities, and this one is like the others. Lots going on in the lobby. A concept tailor-made for the Millennial mindset: small spaces, lots of distractions, and a trendy, hipster feel. This property is showing a little wear -- a few too many carpet stains, etc. Will need a rehab here... More

Hotel was very pet friendly, hospitable and clean. You can't beat the location if you're going to be on foot. Very safe, and a great bar downstairs. It's right on the river too! You pay extra for valet parking, but that's to be expected.

Aloft Milwaukee Downtown could be such a great hotel. It's a fun concept in a fun area. You can easily walk to the Bradley Center and many unique bars and restaurants. The desk staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and polite. However, this hotel is popular for Summerfest, basketball games, and concerts at the Bradley Center, and these crowds put a lot... More
