I am always impressed with aloft hotels and really enjoyed my stay in Milwaukee. The hotel has a great feel and welcoming environment. My only suggestion would be that the hotel staff be clearer on what is included when you choose the package that includes 1/2 off Valet. They don't say that you pay extra and then still have to pay 1/2 the valet parking. Other than that I was very impressed and the staff was very nice!

My Friend and I were Very Very impressed and Happy with Every aspect of our stay at the Aloft! The staff was very Friendly, Rooms Neat and Clean, in room coffee was very good. The Valet's were very helpful. The only thing that we would have found helpful is if there were more places to hang things such as towels so they could dry. but very pleased would definitely stay there again Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mary Great hotel location, dining options need improving
This was my first experience staying at an Aloft property and the reviews for staff attentiveness were accurate. Nate (Valet Services) went above the call of duty to accommodate.
The food however was not impressive at all!!!!!!!
The breakfast selections were subpar. The hot breakfast options were pre made and not appetizing to say the least. Business travelers such as myself typically require a hot breakfast with nutritious protein items to sustain us during a long day of travel and meetings. Aloft did not deliver on that front.
The evening selections at the bar were processed and not nutritious at all. Because of this, I will not be returning to this or any Aloft properties. As a Starwood Platinum member, this is disappointing because the location of this hotel is ideal for me – rooms were very comfortable however, the lack of satisfactory dining options were lacking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jackie2709 Incorrect Bed Sheets
This is my first time staying at an Aloft hotel. We went to go to sleep and realized there was an attempt to fit a Queen size fitted sheet to a King size bed (obviously it didn't fit). We called the hotel staff and they immediately came up and replaced all the sheets. Then, while sleeping, I couldn't help but take in the smell of McDonald's french fries on the pillow. Kind of a goofy experience...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tara13 Not worth the money
We called ahead to request an early check in around 2 PM...They said the earliest they could accommodate was 2:30. We arranged our schedule and ended up not showing up to check in until 4 PM, and the room was STILL not ready. Then at check in the girl handed me our room keys with no explanation of how to get to the room. I had to ask and then it seemed like it was an inconvenience for her to tell me. The layout of the room was very cramped, and the rolling closet style bathroom door doesn't even close all the way. The 24 hour pool was nice, but we were scolded like children when we didn't have shoes on to walk to the pool and were told that absolutely no beverages were allowed in the pool area, then on our way back up to the room, a group of people walked past all wearing no shoes and nothing was said to them. The valet guys were probably the most helpful employees there.

Liked the hotel w/the exception of not being able to sleep due to the noise. Our room faced the river and every time a car drove over the bridge we would hear it- the wheels hitting the metal grate. Not a problem until trying to sleep.
Additionally, our room wasn't cleaned during our stay. We came back to the room at about 5pm to shower & freshen up and it was at that time the maid service came to clean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 1235888 The hotel is a little tired.
The hotel needs a little refresh. The carpet is ripped and has a ton of stains. In general its a really enjoyable Hotel with a great staff. But it does need a refresh. New carpet and tiles is all.

We cannot say enough about our wonderful stay at aloft this weekend. Having had surgery on both my feet recently, and unable to do much walking, I can't praise the Valet service enough!! They were awesome and got us where we needed to be in a seconds notice. They went above and beyond and we were very thankful!! The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great place, we will be back!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by AnnieMae Noisy location
I wondered why sleep aid packages were offered upon check-in until the evening hours when the noise and vibrations from nearby bars made me feel as if I were in a tent on the sidewalk. Conversations within the hotel were easily heard in the hallway -- thin walls? The hotel property is lovely, rooms comfortable, excellent staff, but due the noise, I am unlikely to stay at this hotel again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wiredwombat Modern but cheap
This hotel looks cool when you walk in. It's got funky pop mural, and a fun vibe about it. However, you get up to the rooms and the 'nice / cool' vibe kinda stops. The room was minimal to say the least and so many of the features just screamed 'cheap'. One desk chair is the only other place to sit besides the bed and the TV, while nice and big, doesn't move nor can it be adjusted. So if you want to sit at the desk to watch TV you can't.
The room was sparse, no decorations and while I appreciated the modern bathroom, the dispensers in the shower said, 'Hey, I'm in the locker room at the gym".
This really is a hotel where you expect to come in and do NOTHING but sleep, shower and change. This is not a great space to come back to after a long day of working or a conference to relax in.
I will say that one of the best things about the hotel was the staff. The staff are extremely nice and helpful.

Aloft Milwaukee staff went above and beyond to make our weekend getaway memorable! From the personalized/warm welcome upon arrival, to our in-room anniversary sweets - we were thrilled with everything! The staff even took the time to acknowledge our dog every time we passed the front desk - what a great experience!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MegF9 Couple of drawbacks
One, the hotel room was not cleaned adequately each day - towels, amenities [soap and toilet paper] were scarce, almost like they were being rationed.
There needed to be an option on the A/C, furnace setting such that a constant room fan could be running, as the rooms walls were paper thin, and "white noise" needed to be present to shut out the noise in the hallways.

Rated 2 out of 5 by whatever8008 Room is nice and thats it.
Felt like no one knew what was going on. We received multiple answers constantly and I still don't know what I am really being charged for because they gave me 3 different amounts. Granted i have a receipt now and it was more than they stated. I had a few other issues with things but the room itself was nice and quiet. I will not be staying at the aloft in downtown Milwaukee ever again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SDAV Great Location! Great staff!
We were in town for a wedding. The staff at this hotel was wonderful from the first phone call regarding reservations all the way through check out. The staff was friendly and helpful. The valets, the desk staff and the housekeeping staff were always there to help with any questions or needs. I will definitely book this hotel again when visiting family in the area!

Rated 2 out of 5 by RoadWarriorOH Hotel needs refurbishing
We have stayed at this hotel several times since it opened. Previous visits were very good. Our current stay was very disappointing. The carpeting in the rooms are dirty and need replacing. Although the staff was helpful, they had to change our room twice because of unacceptable conditions. We would not stay there again unless the hotel makes big changes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jjj5 Nice Facility, Poor Construction
The stay started out great until the guests in the rooms next to us and across from us came back. We could hear every single word they said and everything they did at 2 and 4am waking us up both times.
I would recommend asking for a room with NO one across the hall and no one in the room next to you.
I don't plan on returning and wished I wouldn't have stayed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DawnT Best Pet Hotel in Milwaukee!
Excelent hotel with a great location. The decor is very fun and vibrant. If you are traveling with your pet you will find no better hotel in Milwaukee. They really do cater for pets .... included in the stay you get a dog bed, treats, waater and food bowl... and all at no extra charge. The staff are very outgoing and friendly too! I highly recomend this hotel.

The Hotel was great. It's decor was modern and fun. The room was set up very nicely with plugs at both nightstands that helped charging our phones convenient and easy. The a/c was easy to control and kept the room at a comfortable temperature. The shower had great flow and was nice and clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by meanfarmer Good Service
When our trip brought us to Milwaukee one day early, we called and booked an extra day at the Aloft. Our room for that night was not up to the usual standards and the staff made sure we were better accommodated for the rest of our stay. Because of such kind and attentive service, we will stay again at Aloft Milwaukee.

I have stayed at many Starwood properties but this was my first stay at an Aloft. This hotel was very clean, decorated beautifully, located near some great bars and restaurants and the staff was very friendly and more than accomodating. I will definitely be planning a trip back to the great city of Milwaukee soon and book my room with the Aloft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wtnguy if you want to sleep go elsewhere. Poor service
As a Starwood Platinum member I stay at many Starwood properties and besides the Miami Four Points this is the second worst hotel in the stable. I arrived at 3/pm on a Saturday. There was a line out the door to check-in and only one person at the desk. No recognition for Platinum status. The rooms are small. The biggest problem is there is poor sound proofing as it is next to highway and neat many bars and night clubs I stayed on the fifth floor and could not sleep from the banging of drums and the sounds of cars. Even worse is I like Harley's, and Milwaukee has many. I just do not need the HOG sound in my room. And car hors. I came for a business meeting and could not sleep well with all the noise. When I called the grin t desk, no one answered, When I down to the desk, no was there. The pool is a joke as it is for toddlers and that is who were in it. I went o too the bar and did not see the bartender. Very bad reflection for the SPG brand and worse for the guest. K will certainty have this low on my list.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wigstheome Standard Aloft Experience; Good Location
Checked in on a Sunday night. All in all, very typical Aloft experience. Staff was helpful and friendly, the room was as expected, and there really were no surprises positively or negatively. Platinum status was recognized, but the hotel doesn't have many suites to offer. The hotel is very convenient to all of the amenities of downtown.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ggg1234 Pretty facade, leaves a bit to be desired
The hotel is very stylish, which is nice, but it doesn't make up for the fact that the food was lackluster at best - really sub-par for the meetings we held there. The meeting facilities in general are ok, but nothing special. The rooms again are very stylish, but the bed was as hard as a rock.
