This hotel was very clean and has a real urban feel. The bar at night seemed to have a nice sized crowd. The staff at the hotel were super friendly. We stayed on the 2nd floor and at night it got a bit loud with the cars on the street below. My girls loved that fancy elevators with floors that... More

Everything was great about the stay here except parking. It's costly for valet and there is no on-site parking so if having a car is important to your stay, it's something to think about. Other than that, it's basically perfect. The decor is very modern, colorful, new. Room was small but top-notch as far as cleanliness/convenience is concerned. There are... More

We stayed at the Aloft while we were attending a wedding in Milwaukee. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable, very clean and attractive room, however remember to request an even numbered room which will have a view of the river or courtyard and not the street or empty lot. This was our only disappointment. Overall it was an excellent hotel,... More

My husband & I love to travel with our standard poodle, Chloe, so we seek out pet friendly hotels.The staff is fabulous about making you & your pet feel welcomed; they bring dog bowls, treats and a bed to the room. Location was great, on the river walk, great selection of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The hotel is... More

I do not disbelieve other reviewers and can only speak for our stay, but it completely exceeded our hopes and as I stated...will be our Milwaukee hotel choice from now on. Check in was quick, painless and most pleasant.....the valet on duty....Vlad was courteous and quick to assist with a luggage cart....front desk..."Just Jay"....and a darling girl whose name I...

I'm a former Milwaukeean who travels home frequently. In the past my wife, dog, and I have stayed at the Iron Horse Hotel. A beautiful place that we love but one that has been getting increasingly more and more expensive so we decided to try the Aloft. We'd stayed at Alofts previously in National Harbor and Portland so we knew... More

Five friends and I stayed at Aloft as part of a Bachlorette Party. Aloft is in the perfect location downtown - right off the freeway and close to all of the most popular nightlife, restaurants, theater, etc. It is very a very modern hotel, and extremely clean! They have a bar right on-site, and you can even visit their hot... More

Online the Aloft hotel looks, clean, fresh, hip and fun...the room reminded us of a compact cruise ship cabin or train cabin. It was very clean, but very confining and made with very low quality materials, no real wood, all particle board with vinyl and neon lights! The so called closet is covered with a curtain and it is only... More

My wife and I stayed for the nights of Oct. 22nd and 23rd. The hotel is located within a block of the bar district. Boy did we find that out the hard way! The hotel is striving for the look of a new loft--lots of concrete, steel, and modern furnishings. It has been open for less than a year. As... More
