Aloft Milwaukee Downtown
Ranked #34 of 55 Hotels in Milwaukee
Reviewed 16 November 2010

This hotel was very clean and has a real urban feel. The bar at night seemed to have a nice sized crowd. The staff at the hotel were super friendly.
We stayed on the 2nd floor and at night it got a bit loud with the cars on the street below.
My girls loved that fancy elevators with floors that have heat sensitive tiles that turn colour as you walk.
The hotel seems to be the perfect place for the business crowd. Enough cupboard space for a short stay. Lovely Bliss bathroom products and a stocked assortment of coffee and tea.

Everything was great about the stay here except parking. It's costly for valet and there is no on-site parking so if having a car is important to your stay, it's something to think about. Other than that, it's basically perfect. The decor is very modern, colorful, new. Room was small but top-notch as far as cleanliness/convenience is concerned. There are good amenities: the pool is indoor/heated which is great, the gym is nice and standard needs like ice/towels, etc... are available. Location is also very good; there are many attractions and good restaurants/bars nearby within easy walking distance. It's close to everything and all major highways (94/41/45). Very helpful/friendly staff as well. I don't say this about most hotels, but I'll definitely stay there again!

We stayed at the Aloft while we were attending a wedding in Milwaukee. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable, very clean and attractive room, however remember to request an even numbered room which will have a view of the river or courtyard and not the street or empty lot. This was our only disappointment. Overall it was an excellent hotel, very chic and hip. Bathroom was very nice, shower head was the only issue which was too high to reach and not enough water pressure.

My husband & I love to travel with our standard poodle, Chloe, so we seek out pet friendly hotels.The staff is fabulous about making you & your pet feel welcomed; they bring dog bowls, treats and a bed to the room. Location was great, on the river walk, great selection of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The hotel is contemporary hip with the WXYZ bar area, indoor/outdoor fire place and a pool table with funky blue felt. We didn't use the workout room (it was a get-a-way weekend) or the swimming pool, though there were guests utilizing those facilities. This was our third stay in six months and we are looking forward to returning in the future. S, N and CZG

I do not disbelieve other reviewers and can only speak for our stay, but it completely exceeded our hopes and as I stated...will be our Milwaukee hotel choice from now on.
Check in was quick, painless and most pleasant.....the valet on duty....Vlad was courteous and quick to assist with a luggage cart....front desk..."Just Jay"....and a darling girl whose name I did not catch were profesional yet warm and helpful beyond
words. Between directions, arranging transportation and just general banter, we could not have asked for two better reps of the Aloft.
Beds were "comfy beyond belief" according to my husband...I would agree..and we never heard a peep from our floor or passersby for the duration of our Saturday night stay.
Although our corner room had a great view of the river.. I think next time we will request a higher floor just to enhance the view....Loved it.
