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

when we booked this hotel we asked for a joining room to our friends. when we got to this hotel, the woman at the desk said this is not possible. a loft does not have joining rooms for king suites. there was no hot tub, the pool was very small, the drinks at their lounge were very expensive. We asked... 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

I wasnt sure what to expect....went out of my comfort zone and tried something new. So glad I did. Becky and Jay at the front desk were most helpful. Wasnt real thrilled with the food options at WXYZ...could enhance that a little more, I arrived late and wasnt up for going out to dinner so I opted for that. I... More

I was in a wedding in Milwaukee this weekend and the couple chose the Aloft Milwaukee as the "group" hotel. As soon as we pulled up to the hotel I was impressed. It has super cool and creative decor and I loved the look and feel of it, and even the smell of the lobby was this refreshing, citrusy fragrance... More

Yes, the walls really ARE that thin. I totally get the concept Starwood is going for with Aloft. I like the concept. But the execution here is terrible. Paper-thin walls and uninsulated windows in rooms that surround a courtyard adjacent to the hotel bar are just a recipe for disaster...and this was a disaster. We got not a wink of... More

We've stayed at the Aloft twice now and both times have had a great time! All of the employees were friendly and extremely helpful. In fact, the last time we stayed there we spent much of the night in the hotel bar. Good prices, great service. Has a great loungy feel, with couches and tvs. It's just a great, relaxed... More

stayed here recently for fun. Great location in Milwaukee Historical district. Super friendly and helpful staff - Especially "J" at the Aloha Desk. Great grab and go breakfast bar; rooms clean and beds very comfortable. good amenities for both the business and leisure traveler.
