“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The staff was very friendly. Great location downtown Milwaukee. It was close to everything we wanted to check out, including the Wisconsin Center. Lobby bar has great atmosphere and drinks! Beds were very comfortable. Loved the Bliss bath products. I'd stay here again for sure.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with friends

Thank you for taking the time out to let us know about your visit with us. So glad to hear that the experience was a positive one. One of the greatest things about us is our location! Surrounded by nightlife of water street and the Bradley center. Along with being close to the Wisconsin center for all the conventions and expos. With all of that, the access on and off of 43/94 is super easy. Hope to have you back again!

The staff at this hotel go out of their way to provide a high level of service. I have stayed here several times and plan to stay here many more times. The food at the XYZ Bar is better than most and the hotel is located within walking distance of several nice restaurants. Friendly, Friendly and Friendly describes this property....professional too!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good.

Was there on a business trip, first time in Milwaukee. Nice rooms and I like the lobby, easy to get coffee and a take-out sandwich. Would definitely stay there again. Don't have much else to say--I was just very satisfied and would use it as my go-to hotel again.

Great ALOFT hotel (if you're familiar with the ALOFT format) - very efficient, easy and great service from the staff. But no restaurant/room service. Good breakfasts to go. Limited bar menu. Great beds and showers, limited "closet" space, especially for women or couples.

Room Tip: King bed - corner suite has good views of water/river

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We stayed there on a trip back home to visit friends and family during the holidays. The reception team was very nice and laid back. The hotel amenities are fairly small but well arranged. The room was modern, very functional but lacked a bit of charm (maybe overly functional). The hotel was kept clean overall which is not easy with the amount of salt and snow outside. We had a top floor, city view (looking south), king bed room. The views were nice, bed comfortable.

One of the major downside is the fact that they don't have an indoor parking garage (most hotels do downtown). In December/January in Milwaukee, even with a valet, your car is covered in snow and takes a long time to warm up.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor, especially in winter, the snow plows all night will wake you up.

Dear Marc,

We are glad we were able to take care of you on your way back home after the holidays. Hopefully they were great and the rest of your travels went smoothly. We appreciate you taking the time out to let us know about your stay with us. You're right that it is tough to keep the hotel clean with all the salt on the ground, but it is something that our team works really hard on and they will be appreciative that their effort does not go unnoticed!

This hotel was very clean and nice. It offers basic amenities but you are not left needing more. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate coming back! The staff is also pleasant and accommodating. Overall a very pleasant stay. Breakfast was also not bad; you have a choice of various prepackaged items or you can get a warm breakfast sandwich, all was included in out platinum benefits. Very good stay!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We've given five stars based solely on the staff. Amazing service. We arranged to have some packages delivered to the hotel prior to our arrival and they couldn't have been more helpful. From the valets to the staff cleaning the rooms the team are amazing. Not too much to say about the hotel, clean and modern and huge TV and bed. We go a phenomenal secret hotel offer on expedia and can't believe the value we got. £100 for three nights. The hotel is central to many bars and restaurants although a healthy oversize walk to downtown, very lovely though. We stayed in the week so can't comment on noise at weekends but we had no issue there. We did however have a room overlooking the river which though amazing did suffer from the noise of the cars crossing the metal structured bridge. It sounds like howling wind. We didn't raise it with the hotel but it might be worth swapping the river view for more quiet
