I stayed at the aloft with my fiancee for two nights over my birthday weekend and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The decor of the whole place was very cool and trendy. The bar happy hour specials were good so it made perfect spot for all my girlfriends to meet before our night out on the town!! They... More

Cheap decor. Skimpy on amenities: towels, soap, coffee. We had to call down for everything. Service was prompt, though. The room and the pillows had a musty smell. Parking was overpriced. This was my 2nd stay and it seems that, although this is a relatively new hotel, it's starting to look run down. I think that management needs to get... More

I Iike the somewhat minimalist trendy room at the Aloft, but the lobby is cluttered and messy (trying too hard). The rooms however are great, excluding the showerheads. I've stayed at this hotel about 7-8 nights in the last year, and the showerheads are all the same - poor pressure and too broad of a spray (takes forever to rinse... More

Thank you for letting us know what you think, we appreciate any and all feedback. Interesting note about the rooms and the noise, the bridge being under construction definately helps with that since they work on a normal work schedule. Glad you are able to enjoyo the hotel with your dog, we love to take care of pets since they... More

This was my first stay at an Aloft and - except for the bathroom design - I was not disappointed. Style. Practicality. A welcome lounge for guests. Starwood has done a great job bringing a fresh concept to the weary business traveler. The one disappointment was the bathroom design. Poor lighting. Odd pocket door with gaps allowing sight lines between... More

Hotels in downtown Milwaukee are either standard/boring large hotels or expensive boutique hotels. The Aloft is a new, stylish, and wonderful addition in downtown Milwaukee. The rooms are great and it's right along the river walk. It's my new favorite hotel in Milwaukee!

At first we thought this was going to be another condo building! What a nice surprise to find an affordable well located hotel in Milwaukee. Plan to stay there again soon!

This is my first stay at an Aloft hotel so my review likely reflects more about my thoughts on this concept than on the Milwaukee property. If I have an opportunity to stay at other Aloft properties, I’ll likely be in a better position to rate the merits of this location. That said, I don’t get this concept. Billed as... More

I stayed in this hotel during December 2012. The hotel is in a very nice location (downtown) and was quite accessible from my office. The staff was very helpful at all times. There are no convenient stores around the hotel (nearest one is about 4 blocks away) however there is a small section on the ground floor where off-the-shelf food... More

This is my second stay at aloft in Milwaukee. My company has a very nice rate, and I'd continue staying here whenever in town for business... it's got large rooms, a cool lobby; however one of my biggest pet peeves is a weak shower.

This is my second stay at the Aloft in Milwaukee. It is the best of a handful of downtown hotels my company authorizes for employees to stay at while working in the 'burbs. We get a good rate there.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I am sorry that your temperature was changed in your room upon your return. I can understand how uncomfortable that is because I also need my room cold in order to get some sleep. Definately something we will look at as it should not be happening. You make a good suggestion... More
