Came here for a wedding and was lucky to book at the last minute at the same "discounted" price as the online deals you try to find. Also you must do valet parking, which I realized that hourly parking is MUCH cheaper than their overnight parking fee. I was in a weird circumstance and ended up paying hourly for overnight....

Thanks for taking the time out to let us know about your experience. Hope you enjoyed the wedding and your time in the city. We appreciate the feedback regarding the bar pricing as well as the parking, without such, we cannot find ways to make improvements to get better for our guests! More

Stayed here for Summerfest. The location is convenient and safe. Unfortunately, the service is lacking. Our room was not cleaned one night, the pool area was littered with trash from the night before, and the cleaning people use the door jams to prop open the rooms while cleaning which results in loud banging everytime the heavy doors slam into the...

I would like to apologize on behalf of everyone at the hotel for the service and experience you had with us during your visit.

We stayed at the Aloft Milwaukee for lodging while we went to Summerfest. While the hotel isn't really within walking distance to the festival grounds, it was only about a $7.00 cab ride each way. The hotel was very clean, modern, and very accommodating. We stayed in a room with a King bed and it had all the comforts of... More

We traveled to Milwaukee for Summerfest. We arrived Friday and departed on Sunday. From the moment we were greeted by the parking staff until we left on Sunday, the staff was incredibly attentive and helpful. The people who work at the Aloft are the hotel's best assets--by far. The lobby is visually dazzling. There is a pool table and yet... More

felt it was a great value at $79 a night. As other reviewers have said, if you want to save $23 there's plenty of street parking available. Location is great. Was very impressed by their media and charging station (another reviewer posted a pic) Staff was Mediocre at best, however officer DeRoyce is the man (thanks again for letting us... More

The first thing you notice when you enter the hotel is the modern vibe. The lobby has a nice bar and a pool table and is a fun place to hang out in the evening. The rooms are small, but have a clever layout that utilizes all of the space. The cool, modern decor extends to the guest rooms. I... More

Although I only stayed one evening (what I thought was a good deal for a room rate of $99), my bank card was charged multiple times in error after leaving this hotel.

When I booked this hotel I read a lot of reviews about the bathroom door not closing and it being off putting to some travelers with roommates. I figured it was just that some rooms had broken doors in them and it was a maintence issue. I soon realized though that all the rooms have this sliding bathroom door that,... More
