This is a budget friendly hotel aimed at a very young demographic. It's best asset is the staff. They were friendly, helpful, professional, and unfailingly cheerful. The hotel has a breakfast bar with the basics and a small (but very well prepared) menu of bar food, including some sandwiches.The rooms are well kept and have decent amenities, although the towels...

We stayed here for one night over Valentine's day weekend. Check in was a breeze with friendly staff. Room was nice. We had a river view which was great even though the river was frozen! Walking distance to lots of things we wanted to do and the bar was nice. Will stay here again on our next trip to Milwaukee.

If you love the Aloft or W brands then you'll love this hotel. The bar was hopping when we arrived just before 8p on a Friday night, but not so busy after we dropped off our bags in our room and headed down for drinks before meeting friends for dinner. The area is close to a lot of bars and... More

Aloft was is a perfect location for our one night stay! In walking distance to all Milwaukee nightlife downtown. We stayed here while in town for a Bucks game. Upon arrival check in was quick, the decor was up to date and the bar and lounge area was busy/active! Our room was very clean. The hotel does a great job... More

I like the bar area. It is quite nice. I get the appetizers while drinking my soda. I will also shot pool. Nice place not too far from my home. In the past I also brought my friend and just had a good time shooting pool and talking. He liked it as well.

While the rooms at the Aloft are not my favorite, the staff makes up for it. Hands down the best crew at a hotel I've stayed at, ever. Even after just a few weeks they recognized me (and my coworkers) when coming in on the evenings. Bartenders are also worth meeting!

We booked a block of rooms 6 to 8 months in advance and paid in full right away. Everything for an amazing wedding weekend was set, right? Fast forward to the day of the wedding when out of town guests begin to arrive and check in. 1 by 1 they are told that their rooms where double booked! No one,... More

What would happen if a high-design W hotel married a bargain-priced Four Points? That's the Aloft concept and Starwood has pulled it off brilliantly. The Milwaukee property is on the river and right on the cusp of downtown restaurants, as well as the business center. Parking charges are hefty but everything else is in line with the style-on-a-budget concept. This... More

The hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance of many bars and restaurants, as well as the Bradley Center and the Milwaukee School of Engineering campus. The lobby/lounge is very comfortable and hip with lots of inviting places to sit. The hotel furnishings and decoration are quite contemporary (kind of Ikea-ish). We really enjoyed our stay and...
