“Streamlined and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My room was comfortable. Staff was friendly on check in. There's no restaurant, but sandwiches, salads, sodas, and snacks are available 24 hours, as well as cooked breakfast in the morning. I opted for self-park for the reduced cost, though I think I'd spring for the additional amount to avoid a 1-block walk to the self-park lot next time. The room was clean and comfortable with large windows and a decent view. Walking distance to some bars and restaurants.

We picked this hotel because we were going to a brewers game that night. It was within walking distance to many bars that offered a free shuttle service to Miller Park. Hotel was very clean and staff was nice. Parking was $25 a night which I thought was a little high but so be it.

Stayed for one night with my wife and 3 year old as I had a client meeting the next day- walls of room were paper thin and had hear a couple next door having sex all night - went down to front desk and they told me I can move rooms - I guess they couldn't call the room to tell the couple to quiet down but wanted me to move rooms in the middle of the night . Next morning as I was trying to check out - was told that the self park was full the night I checked in and had to fight them not to pay the full valet price ( when even the attendant told me I didn't have to ) . Spend a few more dollars on a better property ...you will be happy with your decision

This Aloft is a terrific hotel in a great location in Milwaukee. The sociable, friendly bar in the lobby is not to be missed - great cocktails, a decent bar menu (wouldn't kill them to add a few more choices to it!), and a mix of travelers. The staff are fun, hip and Wisconsin-friendly and contribute to the quality of the stay. Rooms and amenities are budget-W but the beds are super comfortable. Good value too.

This is a terrific hotel. If you've stayed at an aloft you know what you're in for-which is a modern chic place with a polite, courteous and helpful staff. Location is good-walking distance to a bunch of places. Usually here for business so don't spend a whole lot of time wandering around.

Although Aloft is often touted as a business person's hotel, I stayed there recently and enjoyed the modern architecture, fireplace and friendly bar (they serve lattes, too) in the lobby, adjacent parking (not always available in big cities) and very service-oriented staff. We even had a philosophical discussion with an intelligent valet parking attendant. The room was small, but large enough for a king-size bed and dresser space.

Prices vary tremendously. I was offered one price on the phone by the hotel and later offered the same room at half the price through CheapTickets. When I called the hotel to tell them, they gave me the CheapTicket price!

I love the Alofts! Cool hotel. Great location (close to the Bradley center and close to a street with all the bars) rooms are nice and big. Very trendy! The pool is open 24 hours, which is pretty cool. They are also one of the cheaper hotels in Milwaukee and you def. get your money's worth! They also allow pets! We brought our dog and they brought up a dog bed, water dish and treats for our dog.
