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...

Stayed here a few weeks ago and not only is the location great the hotel is very clean and inviting. If you have ever stayed at an Aloft this is the same as the others which means they are clean and well managed for the most part. This one is no exception, if you haven't stayed at an Aloft try...

Great hotel and if you want to party on water st. It's a great starting and ending place for a Epic pub crawl!!!! It's easy to get in and out being a downtown hotel. Defiantly stay there again!! About the only thing I can complain about is that walls are vert thin.

It's a really nice hotel, especially for those who love dogs! Pet friendly with no additional fees and complimentary treats. The room is comfortable and clean! The only problem is the noise that comes from the street! The location is great, with a lot of good restaurants and bars in the area!

Aloft is always a consistent property to stay at. Clean rooms, quiet, great place to work, speedy wifi, etc. Parking was off site and expensive but the cost is consistent to other hotels downtown so not a surprise. Valets were prompt, and even "preheated" the car for us! Breakfast was HOT and made to order, check in and out was... More

The overall stay was good but the treatment by the front desk staff including the armed security guard tainted what could have otherwise been an great experience. I stayed at this hotel as part of a large group. When checking in the woman at the front desk was indifferent, dismissive and gave the feeling that we were inconveniencing her by... More

Although the front desk people are very friendly, there is a certain amount of incompetence at this hotel. I requested. Quiet room and got one directly overlooking the main downtown route with non stop traffic. They did move me the next day to delightful room. But it was inconvenient not being able to unpack when I arrived but just pull... More
