My trip to Milwaukee

My stay at Thus hotel was really fun! Valet parking was very convenient since I the weather in Houston is 80's and 90's and it was cold and rainy there. Guest services was very warm and accommodating, the young lady who checked me in was very knowledgeable of everything question I asked and then some! I loved the location of my room overlooking the River and downtown Milwaukee! There were several places to eat in walking distance, really didn't need my rental car since it never moved. There's a bar in the lobby, the bartender working Saturday night was great!

Nice location!

It was the first time I had stayed in Aloft hotel. The hotel was nice and in a convenient location to the river and local pubs. I was surprised to see upon arrival that I had to pay for parking. I was also surprised to see that breakfast was not provided, as is with most hotels and was actually fairly expensive. The front desk staff and valet staff were very nice. The room was unique and cute. The bed was SO comfortable!

Beautiful hotel

The room was very clean and the set up is unlike any room I've ever stayed in. Our view was simply amazing. The price was a bit much but we had no troubles with our stay. A block away was literally DOZENS of bars.

Great location, friendly staff

After a busy day in town, we enjoyed our room as well as the hotel bar and courtyard. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location is great. I would absolutely stay at this property again on my next visit to Milwaukee.

Unique

This hotel is not your ordinary chain hotel. It was nice to have a change. The room was very unique. Our view of the river was excellent. The location was excellent, so close to restaurants and bars and the pier for the cruise we planned. The lobby bar and outside seating area where a plus. Although we liked the uniqueness of the room we weren't thrilled with the see-though shower wall into the sleeping area. The pillows were uncomfortable and our sliding bathroom door didn't work. Since we didn't want work staff in our room I mentioned it at check out. I was assured it would be fixed for the next guest. Yeah, for them. We had no privacy from each other.

Excellent

I love staying at the Aloft. We always have a wonderful experience. The staff is super nice and helpful with local eatery suggestions. The valet staff is fast and accommodating. I can't say enough good things about this place. I will stay there many more times I'm sure!

Cool hotel, nice amenities, amazing value downtown!

Aloft is the best value I've found in downtown Milwaukee. And you don't need to sacrifice style (the design is sleek with a cool bar in the lobby), amenities (it's got a pool and Bliss bath products) or location (it's close to Bradley Center and other downtown attractions). Highly recommended.
