Great location by the stadium. A very European Style. Smaller rooms and bath, but very functional. Great desk and avaliabilty of charger plugs. TV mounted high on the wall at the end of the bed. Small help yourself snack area with brunch in the AM in the lobby. Rocking bar.

We picked the Aloft for a short anniversary trip. I researched a lot, but chose the Aloft based on it being relatively new, unique and seemingly nice for a tight budget. We arrived to find that you had to pay $23 a night to valet park or $15 a night to self park, which seems ridiculous for Milwaukee. We moved... More

Stayed here for just a night with the family on a Saturday. I would go back without hesitation alone, with my spouse, or with friends, but probably not with the kids. This hotel is really conveniently located in the downtown Milwaukee area. This is the 3rd aloft I've visited, so I'd say it's pretty standard as far as rooms, amenities,... More

I stayed four nights for a family reunion. The lobby was a perfect place for hanging out or for making plans. We could also gather there or in the courtyard after an evening out to wind down. The hotel is located well along the river. It is a little noisy from the street at night but that really didn't bother... More

great spot for business whether your meeting is downtown or out west. this is in the center of it all and you can get there very easily from the Aloft. Plus being close to the riverwalk area makes it a lot of fun for evening activities. I would definitely stay there again.

Aloft Milwaukee is an awesome new hotel along the Riverwalk. Great courtyard patio and lobby bar. Loved the pool table in the lobby and the "fruit infused" water. The rooms were nice size and reminded me a of a loft room in a big city. The hotel was booked to capacity so it was kind of annoying with it being... More

First of all, this hotel was an amazing value. We randomly got this hotel on a Hotwire bid for $70, after paying $110 the night before for a much less impressive downtown Milwaukee hotel. I wasn't sure what to think when I arrived at Aloft, because it has a very sleek, urban, club-like feel. I usually prefer cozy comfort. Once... More

We stayed during a large convention period and there were few rooms available in the downtown area which might explain the relatively high cost ($249) plus taxes and plus parking. Parking was $23 but we managed to find limited street parking during our stay. Hotel is clean but open wattle lobby was hardly relaxing with loud music playing most of... More

I am a BIG fan of W and a bigger fan of Starwood. I was expecting way too much from aLoft. Don't get me wrong, I was not unhappy here. The location was great, the staff was nice, the overall look and feel of the hotel was very modern/retro, which I like, and the beds were comfy. The one thing... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit here and appreciate the review. You are correct though, the closet space is very different than most hotels and is exactly the same in most every aloft. We value feedback such as this though because it allows us to have an opportunity to create solutions for guests such as yourself! More

I like to stay downtown when in Milwaukee, however the prices (and family friendliness) are prohibitive. This was my first time trying Aloft. Yes, the walls are thin. Fortunately for us, it was a weeknight and not an issue. Could it have a been slightly (being very picky) cleaner? Yes, but overall I was very pleased and will stay there... More
