Rated 5 out of 5 by My new favorite hotel I have stayed at ALOFT in at least 4 different owns., near airports, downtowns etc, always great experience. Clean, friendly, quiet, fun and great coffee in the concession area. April 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Aloft MKE Nice property. The staff was friendly. The decor and rooms were consistent with the A-loft brand. The parking and valet were a little confusing and the grab and go cafe could use a little more variety & quality. April 24, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Weekend Stay The ALOFT is becoming a place of gathering for young teenagers and 20 somethings to congregate and party. The hotel is extremely noisy at all hours of the night. Starwood desperately needs to open a higher end Sheraton or Westin in downtown Milwaukee. Would not recommend due to clientele and noise. April 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Aloft in Milwaukee Basic and yet very modern hotel. Wifi in room, Mni fridge in room. Decent fitness room, indoor pool. Hotel is right on the Riverwalk! April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Customer Service 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!! March 24, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. March 24, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as Advertised I found Aloft Milwaukee Downtown through AAA, and was thrilled to see that they were pet-friendly. I called the reservation desk to verify, and ask a few other logistical questions. I was impressed by all Aloft had to offer, and by the communication leading up to my visit. That's where it ended. In email confirmations and reminders, parking was mentioned to be $15 for self-park or $23 for valet. When we arrived, the valet told us that self-park was available at restaurants or other hotels, but they only had valet. Strike one. Then when I checked in, my bill showed $25 for valet. The front desk staff told me that this is because I booked after January 1, when they raised parking prices. That would be fine, except all communication (including on a sign outside the hotel) said $23 for valet (and besides that I had hoped to do the self-park for cheaper). I brought my dog with me, and had made sure to mention this during my reservation, as I knew we would be tight on time upon arrival. The front desk staff had no idea that I was bringing a dog, and asked if I wanted to "arf kit" brought up to my room. I said that I had been told it would be in the room. We ended up waiting 15 minutes for these items to be delivered, making us late for our dinner reservation so that we could make sure the dog was comfortable. In the room, it reeked of new paint. And I mean REEKED! It was difficult to breathe normally, or fall asleep, with the horrible smell in the air. Additionally, I was unimpressed with the housekeeping job. The soap in the shower was clogged up and I had to clean it with a towel in order to get anything to come out. Finally, I was told when I made the reservation that there was a complimentary breakfast. Yet, when I cam down to the lobby, was told that they didn't offer complimentary breakfasts, and that I could pay for items (an extreme price, mind you, for things I could get at any grocery store). Had I not been told that the breakfast was free, the dog kit would be in the room upon arrival, and that self-parking was available, my expectations might not have been so high. I suggest you work on only promoting the perks that are actually offered and that your staff can deliver on. I can't say I will recommend Aloft, nor can I say that I will be back anytime soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Will not visit this hotel again Stains on the carpet, light bulbs out, not the experience I expected from an Aloft. The staff was very good, including the valets. February 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. February 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Centrally located, well run hotel Nice modern hotel in downtown Milwaukee. January 27, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. January 13, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Front desk was rude The front desk was rude starting with the moment we arrived. We had to get their attention to stop talking to each other. When we wanted to use the pool with our kids, we were told we needed to go back to our rooms to put our shoes on due to "the broken glass from our bar". It seemed odd since 1) the bar was dead with no patrons as of 9:30pm the previous night, and 2) if there was broken glass, why wouldn't the hotel take every effort to effectively clean that up. In addition, the water was out during our stay. Having the water turned off for an our with 3 kids is not what we planned or what to experience again. January 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleasant place to visit. Facility good for short stays. Personnel were very helpful and pleasant. January 6, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Meh.... As a Platinum member and one who frequents the SPG brands weekly, I was a bit surprised at this location. The room was comfy enough, but as far as amenities, forget it. Pay to park and hike a block, or pay out the nose for valet. Breakfast was a scant flavorless sandwich and overpriced drinks out of a cooler. I got the impression that the managers were away so no one was working to hard. When I asked about Platinum benefits I was looked at like I had a third eye. The front desk gal acted like she had no idea what I was talking about. Nothing like most SPG I have been to. December 23, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by worst SPG experience to date I am a platinum SPG member and travel quite often for business. No self parking available on site, staff didn't recognize my status on checkin and didn't upgrade despite the hotel being nearly empty during my stay. The bed felt like cardboard as did the pillows. The heater in the room was loud and distracting. The walls are paper thin and could hear everything in neighboring rooms. My wake up call was non-existant/forgotten. December 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Time Stay; Found a Gem Liked the room, atmosphere, location. November 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hands down - favorite hotel As a platinum 100 night a year starwood member, this is without a doubt is my favorite hotel. The hotel location is great as it sits in downtown Milwaukee which has wonderful restaurants, shops, museums and a beautiful lake park. The hotel itself has a very warm feel to it with a lobby that is always full of guests socializing and playing pool and I love looking out over the canal However, the best part is the staff. Vicky, Johnny and Eva all have such a great attitude and take the time to get to know their guests. I always feel so welcomed when I arrive. November 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Never Again Our stay here was completely unsatisfactory. The desk clerk messed up our room right away and we had to go back and forth from the fifth floor to the lobby twice and then to the second floor where our room was supposed to in the first place. The beds are extremely uncomfortable, and the water pressure in the shower is almost non-existent! On our second day, we came back from shopping and our room smelled terribly strong of a sewer type smell. Our last day in town was my birthday and when we arrived back at the hotel that night, we were harassed obnoxiously by staff while we were outside in the smoking area for noise because we were laughing too loud. If you know the downtown Milwaukee area at all, you know that the Water St area is a busy part of town with alot of attractions and event venues, add to that it was a weekend, so there was bound to be some noise, but we were reprimanded for being too loud OUTSIDE, to the point that we eventually left the property and sat in our car to talk! Horrible place to spend my birthday! I waited for a long time to stay at an Aloft Hotel and was sorely disappointed, and I will never stay at another or recommend it anyone. If you plan on doing more than sleeping while you're there, I'd find a better place to spend your time. November 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by aLoft is the place to stay! aLoft Hotels are consistent from reservation thru check-out! Great staff, great locations, Hip style. October 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Located Downtown and Friendly Staff The hotel is in walking distance to a nice downtown experience. October 25, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. October 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded my expectations We stayed at The Aloft Downtown Milwaukee for my daughter's wedding. I cannot adequately express how pleased we were with ALL the staff. The level of professionalism that each and every person showed was top notch. Responses to questions or requests were met immediately and with smiles!. Their valets were the best I've ever encountered. We wanted for nothing the entire stay. I'd like to give a shout out to Madeline, the sales & event coodinator that we worked with us. She was very organized, returned our calls and emails in a very timely manner and truly took care of so many small but important details. I highly recommend this hotel and will certainly stay here again in the future. October 9, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Staff is Terrific and Location is Perfect Staff was extremely responsive when some minor maintenance was required for our room. This hotel is perfectly situated for a visit to Milwaukee; walking distance to some great restaurants and locations like the Bradley Center and the Wisconsin Center convention facilities.

Rated 2 out of 5 by This hotel has a great bar 4 nights at the ALOFT the bed was very hard and room layout and cleanliness were an issue. Observed a cleaning person in the breakfast area wipe the floor and clean a table with the same cloth. October 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Hotel in Milwaukee I've been staying at this hotel for several years and would strongly recommend to anyone. It is in the heart of downtown Milwuakee surrounded by great restaurants within walking distance. The staff is excellent from the GM to everyone working there. September 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great management attention to customer service Upon check - in, I was placed in a room I didn't reserve. Upon learning about it the next morning, the Hotel Manager and Front Desk Manager quickly resolved it and moved me into a King for my 4 night stay. This ALOFT tries really hard to deliver a good customer experience. It was a great turn -around on an earlier fumble. It's great to see that they really cared. The hotel also has a shuttle service for business travelers to nearby offices that is a really nice plus. September 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This hotel was outstanding! Wow! One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at! Everyone was so accomodating and very friendly and attentive to any question we had. They offered to look up information for us before we even had an opportunity to ask. We were also impressed that even the maid knew the history of the hotel. Will definitely try to stay at this chain of hotels again. M&K September 17, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Will not be going back. The first impression I had of this hotel was a night club/college dorm appearance. Once we got inside it didn't change. It was very loud and somewhat chaotic, which was probably because we were there on a Friday night and a concert was going on downtown. No issues with the staff. As mentioned numerous times in other reviews, the room gave off a college dorm feeling, with very little privacy, especially where the bathroom was concerned. If you were traveling alone, it wouldn't have been an issue. The whole shampoo/bodywash dispenser set up seems like a cheap way to save money and add on to the freshman dormitory flavor. Plus, you could take the lid off and anyone could put god knows what in there. All of the above are petty complaints, but our biggest issue was a guy who happened to fall asleep on a bench outside of our room. We came out of our room and he was sleeping, with a pile of vomit below him, just a few feet from our room. The hallway stank for the rest of our stay. So, not only did it look like a dorm, but it was run like one. I can see a more rowdy and younger age group liking this kind of hotel, but if you want a classic and old fashioned hotel stay, this is not the place. As was also said in many previous reviews, management doesn’t really care about the negative reviews, as they’re opinions and preferences. Nothing will be changed from a few pessimistic words about a hotel, but it does feel good to vent out ones frustrations about a not so good stay. September 17, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by 2 Queens is not a King - the tv and Internet should work in all rooms I booked a King room weeks in advance for a 4 night stay...only to arrive and be told "Housekeeping put you in a room with 2 queen beds, instead of a King to be sure everything worked". REALLY ? Last month when I stayed here the TV didn't work for two days. And their internet "had too many users so no access". (Although the manager followed up after the trip to apologize which was nice.) So I assumed my King reservation would be fine this trip. Nope. Two queens instead...."so everything will work". So I guess the "king rooms" don't have "things that work". No recognition of Starwood guest status either. September 16, 2013
