We enjoyed our stay-cation at Aloft. We have stayed at many other hotels (of similar price points) in the area and Aloft had, by far the best customer service. Despite the power outage that just occurred prior to our arrival. I wish I remembered, her name, but the bartender at WXYZ was personable and efficient. Our room was clean and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 December 2016

The Aloft Hotel was impressive both from a location standpoint and from an architectural inviting atmosphere. The staff was friendly from the time of my arrival until my departure. The room was really well kept, beautiful view of the river, comfy bed and bedding, and a wonderful shower. The only draw back I found was the hanging space but for...

My daughter attends college in Milwaukee and being an out of state parent, I've been trying a different hotel with each visit. This hotel is one of the nicer hotels I've visited so far. It's a good location, nice people, and clean.

One of the most uncomfortable hotels I've experienced. The bed is horrible, no blankets just a light comforter that doesn't fit the bed properly. Terrible pillows as well. Thermostat does not work properly either, cannot have a comfortable temperature. Extremely noisy all night long. Very little sleep in this hotel. Rumblings from the road surface outside the building. The only...

Excellent amenities, location, and hospitality. Loved our view of the city and current construction. Beds are comfortable beds, spaces throughout hotel clean, modern, and inviting. Many views and dining options within walking distance. Valet parks your car so be prepared for daily parking fee.

First time staying at any A-loft. The location is great but the hotel room was below average with thin walls, low quality items, and an uncomfortable bed. You could tell they wanted to spend as little as possible in every room which was on the smaller side. Work out room was small but adequate for a quick work out. Overall,...

Good Morning Tina, I would like to thank you for trying out the Aloft for the first time recently. I am very sorry we didn't meet your expectations with comfort of bed and furnishings in the room. The Aloft is designed to be very modern and colorful. Some may say it's simple but tasteful. All of us here appreciate the...

I've never had the chance to stay at am Aloft property, so I wasn't sure what to expect. What we got was a cute boutique hotel in one of the best and up and coming areas of downtown Milwaukee! Walking to distance to the stadium, the Riverwalk, music, food,... and soon to be across the street from the new Bucks...

We stayed in February for a long weekend. The staff especially the valets were so friendly that it makes me want to return. We brought our dog and they couldn't have been more accommodating to us from the front office to the housekeeping staff. The rooms are tastefully done in bright colors and there is a wide screen tv. Free...

This modern property is tucked away within historic Milwaukee. You can't beat the location. We were here to visit the engineering university 3 blocks away. It was very cold and we didn't have time to visit the sites, but we are definitely coming back and checking out the restaurants and old school bars. Just pay the $15 valet fee, as...

The hotel is good but the internet is a very low speed internet, there will always be some or the other problem in the rooms and the gym. The biggest problem is the heaters will start blowing cold air at night and will make it impossible to sleep

“Ask for a room NOT overlooking the river if you want QUIET. Loudness depends on how occupied the property is and what's going on outside.”
