I can'y understand why a business traveler would stay here. Partly my fault for not knowing more about this hotel but the staff could definitely make the stay ore pleasant. As far as not good for a business traveler the main reason I say this is the rooms don't have a closet. That's right, no actual closet. There is a... More

We had a wonderful time at Aloft. The staff is very friendly and the beds are awesome!The location is perfect for shopping and dining. Everything is within walking distance. There are many restaurants around there. We ate at Buck Bradley's which is somewhat of a landmark saloon touting the longest bar this side of the Mississippi. Food and service were... More

The room was great, very spacious. The lobby was fun, between the bar and the free pool table and the snack area that is open 24/7. We throughly enjoyed our stay. The prices at the lobby snack bar were a quite steep, but you pay for convenience. There are also late night hot food options until 2:30 am which was... More

Clean and comfortable room. The bed was awesome, but the only one chair and it was not comfortable. The room was on the small side but had a cool modern European feel. Only snacks on site but plenty of dinning options close by.

The Milwaukee Aloft was a great place to stay. Close the the river walk and on the Historic 3rd St we were able to walk to most places or take a quick Uber ride. The hotel was clean and hotel staff was always friendly and helpful!

This was my first stay at an Aloft brand hotel and for the most part, I was pleased with my stay with a few exceptions. I checked in on a Wednesday, late July at a government rate of $115 a night.

I was traveling with a friend who wanted to use Starwood points so this was our only option at the time (Spring 2016). The hotel was clean but showed signs of wear, like chipped tiles in the bathroom, snags in the carpet and other flaws one doesn't normally see in an upscale hotel. There is sort of a "culture" to...

Aloft Milwaukee is a great place to stay. Good location right off the expressway and convenient walking distance to many bars and restaurants and not too far from the lakefront. Reasonably priced with standard hotel amenities you would expect. Beds super comfy. Only one negative is the bathroom is not a separate room, more like an alcove so don't recommend... More

Pros: Big, comfy bed. Cool decor. Nice lobby. 24/7 snack bar and pool. Awesome lobby with a bar, pool table, lounge area and outdoor patio. View from hotel of downtown and river. Cons: There weren't many. Room didn't have mini fridge. No hot tub at hotel. This hotel is definitely geared more toward a night out on the town/couples retreat.... More

In all fairness this is the first stay for us in an Aloft of the Sheraton family.
