Our name says it all—Aloft Milwaukee Downtown—so our location’s kind of a no-brainer. Located on a historic street in the heart of the city's bustling business district and just off Interstates 43 and 94, we're most easily reached by car. Hop on the highway and you'll be here in no time! Plus, wheels give you the flexibility to zip around to nearby businesses and area attractions with ease.

If you’re flying in from afar, Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport about 8.5 miles away is your best bet. Served by all the major domestic airlines, it’s a handy hub for arriving in the area. You should have no problem finding a flight to suit your schedule. Directionally challenged? Check out our step-by-step driving directions from the airport. For directions from elsewhere, just plug “1230 Old World Third Street, Milwaukee, WI” into your favorite online mapping resource.

But for the non-drivers—or eco-conscious—among you, a car’s not necessary. Milwaukee is great on foot, and we’re steps from the scenic Riverwalk and loads of other attractions. When you get tired of hoofing it, there are plenty of cabs and an excellent local transit system. Call the hotel or stop by the front desk and we’ll give you the full rundown.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
