We booked a room (rooms are called lofts' at the aloft hotel, but they are nothing other than an open-concept rooms in modern design) the Aloft for the weekend of the 110th Harley-Davidson anniversary. For the relatively high price I expected a little more but in the end it did the job since we didn't spend much time in the...

My husband and I stay at Aloft in downtown Milwaukee an average of 25 nights each year. The rooms are very hip! The hotel has a very cool vibe that you feel from check in to check out. The WXYZ bar is always active and they serve a good selection of sandwiches and small bites. The staff is very friendly...

Pleasant staff, love the atmosphere. Rooms are really nice. I will for sure stay again. Was not in the best part of town in my opinion. But the appearance of the hotel made up for any of that. Bed was comfy and the place was designed unqiue.

This was the 10th Aloft I have stayed at, and it was the best of them. I did get a room upgrade to a corner room, which was quite spacious and comfortable. It's location overlooked the bridge across the river, and during the evening one could hear the cars as they crossed the grate on the bridge. But it quieted...

Reviewed 15 August 2013

The hotel has great décor. It has a bar and pool table onsite, it's walking distance to restaurants and attractions, and there is parking for a fee. The claim of a heated pool is false. We stayed at the hotel twice in 1 year and both times, we found the pool to be room temperature.

Thank you for letting us know about your experiences here with us. Sounds llike with the exception of the pool, you really enjoy your visits here with us. We keep our pool heated between 80-82 degrees. Unfortuantely it is one of those items where we cannot keep everyone happy, but we hope for the majority, they enjoy relaxing in splash.

We spent 2 nights at this location over the weekend. At first, I was not going to provide an unfavorable review, but our experience was much out of the ordinary. We arrived Friday evening, and were given a room on the 3rd floor. After putting our bags down, I noticed a pair of mens boxer shorts on the floor at...

Beautiful, modern, clean hotel. Easy check-in. We stayed in room 2047. It faces the river. Let me start off by saying the bed and pillows were the BEST! So comfy.

Good location and service. Large and modern rooms with coffee and water available. Comfortable beds. Minus for simple lobby and bar area and limited availability of breakfast. And expensive parking. Plus for being modern and delicate.

This was my first experience with the Aloft Hotel chain. I liked it for the most part.
