We had our annual family trip to Milwaukee and returned to the Aloft after years of intown hotels. Second time around was even friendlier than last year, if that were possible. You could expect the desk crew to greet you with a smile, but I was blown away by the engineer'sefforts to know us-and let me empjhasize we didn't require... More

My family and I stayed at the Aloft for the first time for a return trip to the Irish Fest, and it was just perfect. The staff is amazing, even by Midwest friendliness standards. They have a cab company on speed dial that never made us wait for more than 5 minutes. The room is wonderful, very streamlined and efficient.... More

I stayed here for a weekend getaway and to explore Milwaukee. Check in was smooth and the staff were very professional and courteous as was the valet staff. We were offered either a river view or city view room on the top floor which was very nice. We opted for the river view room and weren't disappointed. The room was... More

My fiancé and I recently decided we had to get away from the grind and thought what better way then to visit or neighbor to the north Milwaukee. Were Chicago natives and have heard great things about Milwaukee so we were exited for the road trip. We chose the Aloft hotel in downtown Milwaukee and we could not have made... More

Everything about this hotel is perfect, from the personable staff to the little gate on the Riverwalk. Its a great location for restaurants and nightlife, plus the Trolley that takes you around town is only a block away. Everyone we met was fun and funny. You will enjoy your stay.

We were headed to a Brewer game with friends, needed a hotel with close access to shuttles to the game. We enjoyed our stay here, rooms were nice. We did not have any noise problems, lobby was quiet when we returned. Based on other reviews we expected a loud party in the lobby. Noticed there were several families staying. I... More

Dear Sarah K, So glad that you were able to stay with us for the Brewers Game. Hopefully they won! Really the atmosphere of the hotel (really any hotel) changes with what is going on in the city. Being a downtown property, the local events really is what drives business to all of our hotels thus making for different expereiences... More

As a Starwood Platinum member I stay at many Starwood properties and besides the Miami Four Points this is the second worst hotel in the stable. I arrived at 3/pm on a Saturday. There was a line out the door to check-in and only one person at the desk. No recognition for Platinum status. The rooms are small. The biggest... More

So, my family and I stayed here for a quick spur of the moment weekend get-away. We were really excited that we found a hotel that offered 2 Queen beds instead of 2 doubles.

I stayed here in August of 2013. The hotel was exactly as I had expected, having stayed in various Aloft hotels accross the Country. Milwaukee city center is somewhat run down, so only stay down town if absolutely necessary.
