I have stayed in many hotels but this one is overrated. Small area for check in parking made check in a nightmare. We had to switch rooms due to a loud noise in the hallway. The next room had a leaky running toilet, sheets and pillows smelled like they had been sprayed with Lysol. Bed and pillows were uncomfortable. Over... More

Great stay! Friendly front desk - quick and easy check in. Even got early check-in around noon. Great location close to a lot of restaurants - we walked to lunch and did some bar hopping. Room was good size for our stay. Comfortable bed. Good layout of the space. Complimentary water and coffee in the lobby area was nice. Also,... More

We loved our stay at the Aloft! The room had an efficient layout, and was comfortable and clean. The bed was superb. The hotel is very well located. We arrived in town to watch a hockey game at the MSOE arena. We found it easy to walk to great restaurants, and the river walk. We also walked to the Art... More

This hotel is relatively new and very nice. The best part of this hotel is probably its location. Several of Milwaukee's best restaurants and bars are within walking distance and it is very close to the River Walk. The downside of this hotel is noise from the road. The room was very noisy at night as the cars on the... More

Aloft is well located with easy access to I-43 and the downtown area. The new Milwaukee Bucks arena is under construction across the street. It's a trendy hotel with a simple room layout. Not a lot of wasted space, or privacy. The soundproofing is minimal so outside noise could be a problem if you're a light sleeper. It's downtown so... More

We stayed here for several days. At first we had a courtyard view which was basically looking into other guest rooms across the courtyard. The AC unit was unusually loud so we asked for another room and were given a room on the north side of the hotel facing the river and Pabst Park. Beautiful views, but at night the... More

The hotel was very nice and clean and the staff was very helpful when we didn't no where something is. They don't have a breakfast which was disappointing but other than that it was a great stay. I would stay here again, just not in milwaukee. Not my favorite town I visited.

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
