Just stayed at the new aloft in Milwaukee for the weekend. This was our second time in an aloft hotel (first was in Leawood Kansas last Christmas), and we continue to be impressed with the great value! You get nice, efficient, well-designed rooms, great amenities, cool styling, great locations, etc. - all at great rates! Evita and the whole staff... More

My first A-Loft, and it did not disappoint. Hip, happening and minimalist as a W offspring, the Milwaukee hotel is well located with nice, clean guestrooms, excellent meeting facilities, and ample other things to recommend it. Yes, valet parking will cost you, but so will your stay at any other MKE downtown hotel. Hotel staff were welcoming, responsive and without... More

After reading some of the reviews I was nervous about staying here. My son and I were visiting a local college nearby and the location was convenient for us (plus I'm a starwood gold member). A few days beforehand I called the hotel and asked for a quiet room (esp after reading a recent review). We were given a very... More

I stayed at this hotel for the first time recently. The room was nice but I was misled. Because of the promotional price I decided to stay the night before an early international flight. I called prior to making my reservation specifically to ask whether they had a shuttle to the airport and the times it ran. I was informed... More

Thank you for bringing this to our attention and it is certainly a miscommunication issue that needs to be addressed and it will be taken care of so that it doesn't occur in the future. My apologies that this was an unfortunate experience. More

My wife and I frequently stay at Starwood properties and we were looking forward to our stay at Aloft Milwaukee, our first stay at an Aloft hotel. We were very disappointed. The Aloft was more akin to a noisy Courtyard by Marriott rather than an affordable W. The noise was unbearable. The internal walls were paper thin and we could... More

I've stayed here a number of times, and I'm a big fan of Starwood properties... There are 2 sheets and one comforter on the bed.

We travelled to milwaukee last year for a vacation, and saw the A-loft on our trip, and thought that it looked so good we wanted to try it for our next visit. Our sons graduation was this month and although we left it quite late to book, we spoke on the phone and got a good deal After a long... More

Aloft is not for everyone, but it delivers what it promises. What I was positively impressed with at this specific property was the kind and helpful staff and their service minded attitude, from front desk, to bar attendant to valets. Serves well for business travelers that just need to sleep and have a basic breakfast and perhaps a drink or... More

We stayed at Aloft for 2 nights during Easter weekend to visit some good friends. My husband was not a fan of the modern decor, but I enjoyed it. The club music in the lobby was even a little trendy for me (we're 30). We had a second floor room that had some traffic noise and sound carried from the... More

I work in the industry and with over 10 years and 5 as GM experience I can honestly say to stay away. I took my girlfriend to this hotel for her birthday, maybe I had too high of expectations, but for a final bill for one night to exceed 240 dollars for one night I would have stayed at the... More

Thank you for your review. While we strive to ensure all of our guests are happy we understand that aloft is not for everyone. I understand the issue with the parking charge, however, the valet pricing is very competitive with the rest of the hotels in downtown Milwaukee. Still, we want to attempt to satisfy all of our guests and... More
