I stayed here for a weekend getaway and to explore Milwaukee. Check in was smooth and the staff were very professional and courteous as was the valet staff. We were offered either a river view or city view room on the top floor which was very nice. We opted for the river view room and weren't disappointed.
The room was pretty basic and a bit on the smaller side, however it did the job for our weekend getaway. There is a frosted glass wall on one end of the room that has the shower on the other side. I see how this could be a bit awkward for anyone who is not a couple sharing a room, although you can't directly see into the shower, the silhouette may be too much for some. Our safe wasn't working on arrival, however we made a quick phone call to front desk and the technician was up to our room very promptly. The hotel provides toiletries in dispensers. The shampoo/conditioner are one and then there's a separate dispenser for the shower gel.
It didn't bother us too much, however one thing to note is that depending on what way your room is facing, you may encounter some noise from the late night bar attendees, so if you want a completely quiet room, make sure to request it beforehand or at check in.
The staff at this hotel were VERY friendly. We actually came down to front desk a couple of times with questions of where to eat and what to do, and each time the staff steered us in the right direction with their suggestions.
There is a little to-go food area beside the front check in desk. We ordered hot breakfasts and picked up some drinks one day. It was a bit unclear of where to pay for your items and we had to inquire about that. You can pick up all the items you want, however you have to go up front desk to pay as there is no cashier in the food area.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would stay at the Aloft for another weekend trip in Milwaukee.
