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.

Great, hotel. I like that it isn't your typical ' cookie cutter' hotel. Interesting, fun decor.
The front desk staff need to be more knowledgeable on local attractions , specifically restaurants. We asked a couple of times about specific areas and the girl really had no idea. Disappointing . Otherwise we recommend this hotel.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by muwarrior 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 5 out of 5 by Shannon1015 Perfect Property
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 5 out of 5 by Mosey714 This hotel is fantastic!
Could not be happier with our stay. The staff was excellent! From the minute we arrived with our elderly parents, the valet, front desk and cleaning staff were ultra-attentative.
Location was great, near many, many restaurants and bars. Rooms were clean and efficient.
Would highly recommend!

The staff at aloft Milwaukee took care of everything my wife and I needed. Along with the great customer service, the hotel is located walking distance from the Bradley Center and Water Street bars / restaurants. I strongly recommend staying at aloft Milwaukee the next time you are looking for a place to stay in downtown Milwaukee.

This was our 2nd visit to aLoft in Milwaukee, while we had some issues on our first stay, this one wiped out all bad memories. The Hotel Management (Ryan M) asked us to give them another try. We had a great stay, in a great room. The bar w xyz had wonderful drinks! Good atmosphere. The Valet guys were also the best!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MM14 Very Good Location and Value
The overall hotel experience is what you would expect from an Aloft. The rates are good and the staff was eager to please.
I would like to see some upgrade to the breakfast sandwich station ( real eggs ). There is construction going on outside the property, but it is still worth staying at. I plan to return many times.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mrod Better lounge service
The bar top at wxyz was full so I sat in the lounge to order some food and drinks. However the bartender never acknowledged me even after walking by me as I looked at the menu. So I went back to my room and didn't spend any of my money at the lounge.
If I needed to order at the full bar, it should be posted somewhere.

Aloft Milwaukee was amazing. From the parking attendants, front desk staff, housekeeping, fitness center, ambiance, comp water in room, dog friendliness--everything was truly perfect.
Thank you for a great experience our 1st time in Milwaukee--we will definitively be back and recommend your hotel!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mel444 An overall great experience
We only stayed for one night, and we cannot wait to go back. The hotel staff was very helpful and courteous. The location was close to a lot of food/bar options. The room was very comfortable. A great size, and great design. Overall, a wonderful experience, and we will definitely be staying at the Aloft again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LouisNotImpressed Wanted to like it better
Having stayed at Alofts elsewhere, I was expecting much better. But we stayed on a floor where there was a wedding party, and, possibly because of the "hip" Aloft atmosphere, hallway conversations about drinking went on and on and on into the very wee hours; guest showed very little respect for other guests. (I finally had to go tell them to be quiet and leave.) And the bed sheets were cheap, with the pad bunching up under us all two nights. Sounds petty, but both of these things can wreck your rest.
Also, perhaps because we were traveling with our 25-lb. French bulldog, we were put on the "dog" floor. Yes, it makes sense to put all the dog owners on the same floor, and I was glad Aloft took our dog without an extra security deposit. But it felt a little shabby, and the barking was annoying.
One last thing: I was surprised by the high cost of valet/self-parking ($23/$15). Sure, Milwaukee is a biggish city, but it would have been nice to have been told when I made my reservation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CanuckTraveler Next time I will stay elsewhere
Very disappointed in my recent 2 nights here. Extremely noisy both from car going over the bridge as well as the construction that is going on all around the hotel. If you are planning on getting any sleep stay elsewhere.
Pillows and sheets were dirty. Staff was not helpful with local area questions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NicePlaceBut111 Nice Place But...
This is a nice hotel. It's very eclectic and located on the river in downtown Milwaukee. I always request top floor/end unit when I make a reservation but it rarely gets noticed. This place actually read the request I made via the online reservation and made it happen The pool and workout room were great. The lobby has a nice bar and a pool table. We stayed two nights recently. The maid came to our door at 8:30 the first morning. We asked her to come back later and called the front desk to let them know we'd left for the day at 10. The room never got serviced. The toilet and shower are separated from the rest of the room by a door that slides on the outside of the door frame. Even when closed, there are sizable gaps which offer little privacy. There's a kitchen in the lobby with an expansive menu, however, all the items we had were frozen reheats and tasteless and should definitely be avoided. Hence, while this hotel strives to achieve a hip, cool image, it fails at some of the basics.

My friends and I stayed at the Aloft for one night this pas weekend. We had an amazing day! The staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating to our needs (particularly Johnny at the front desk.) I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends!

Our air conditioner was not setup to work with the thermostat in the room. I had to manually manipulate the thermostat on the air conditioner which didn't have a temperature setting on it, just a 0 - 10 dial. Also, the air conditioner was way too noisy and woke me up several times during the night.

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.

The hotel has a great vibe to it and plenty of helpful staff waiting to help. The rooms are updated and fun. We loved our stay here, comfy beds, cool views and wonderful location on Old World 3rd St. The Riverwalk, Buckys bar and Lucilles piano bar all a block or so away only. Loved it here!

Hotel felt like a college dorm. This hotel was stark and unkept. There were take out food containers all the way down the hall and staff was unprofessional and did not know the hotel well. My room was not ready on check in and the accomidations were "cheap" sparsely furnished etc

This hotel is in close proximity to many different things that you can walk to. Once our vehicle was parked we did not need it until we left. Bartenders were very friendly and gave us ideas of things to see and do during our stay.Met our needs perfectly.

I enjoyed my stay however the $23 valet parking was horrible. They took my car and parked it across the street in what looked like an abandoned unsecure lot. Room was small but was nice. Great location for what I wanted it for the weekend
