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

Stayed June 30-July 2 at the Aloft in Milwaukee and loved it! The location right on the river was awesome - it's very proximate to a lot of cool bars and eateries nearby and the riverwalk is so cool; we took that almost the whole way to walk to Lakefront Brewery. We were in town to hit up some breweries... More

I was recently tasked with the good fortune of bringing 10 legends to Milwaukee for Summerfest to perform with our School of Rock students from from all over the United States. Myself and the rest of my staff were staying at the aloft in Milwaukee and Vicky and Eva at the front desk for extraordinarily helpful with extending our reservations... More

I stayed in this hotel about 2 months ago for business and it was kind of gross. There were stains on the carpet in the hall. The building felt like a college dorm. The rooms had a very odd design and decor with paper shades... Just not what I expected. Would not stay again if given the choice.

Great location downtown, you can walk to most attractions. Stayed over the weekend , like other guests I noticed hallway noise but in no way did it inhibit my sleep. Steven was great helping us check in and offered great recommendations to us about local activities. The bartenders gave great service in the lobby bar. The valets at checkin offered... More

We had stayed here on a previous trip and were satisfied with the price and room. Staff seemed frazzled when we checked in. Bed was comfy but that didn't matter because we could hear a dog barking and people walking up and down the hall. It was too noisy to sleep. We will not be staying here again.

I love the idea behind the aloft hotels. I have stayed in several in various cities around the United States, and all have been fairly comparable. With the exception of the location in downtown Milwaukee. In all fairness, the staff was fantastic and the lobby looked like a million bucks. However, the room in which we stayed was very worn...

We were booked here for a wedding and it was fantastic. I had never stayed at an Aloft Hotel before and it was a pleasure. The staff was so helpful and the room was beautiful. It is right on the Riverwalk and so close to the great German restaurants. It was fun to run into the bands that were playing... More

This hotel has a very cool vibe. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and spacious. We were very satisfied with our experience here! Breakfast is available (you order at a window and pay the desk clerk.) The location is perfect! The River Walk runs right behind the hotel and makes getting around the city by foot really... More
