Fun, modern hotel

This was a great hotel to stay at when going to the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Walked 1.5 blocks to go to the Bucks game! Self parking was $15 for the day which was worth it as we could just leave our car parked and walk. Room was nice, king bed was comfy, not a whole lot of room, but was very clean other than a stain by room door. Overall good place to stay, and will stay at the Aloft chain again

Practical business trip accommodation

I had a good time! The room was clean and practical. I used the pool the next morning, very refreshing to start the day. Staff was very accommodating during the entire stay.

Very thankful!

The staff was so friendly, from the valet to the front desk. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The valet helped with our vehicle and also catching us a cab when leaving for the night. I am very happy with the experience and will recommend and stay here in the future. Thank you.

Nice Place

Parking fee was ridiculous, but the place was clean and very nice. A little loud in the lobby and very hipster.

Did the trick

We were only here for one night. At its core seemed like a pretty basic hotel for a good value. Little touches in the decor and stuff available made it pleasant--free water bottles, cafe in the lobby, magazines to read, clean modern lines, etc. Staff was helpful, answered all of our overly specific questions. Room seemed clean; stains on the rug but that was about it. Smelled good. Did the trick.

nice hotel, lousy air conditioner

nice to place to stay prior to a concert at the nearby Bradley Center. The only negative was an air conditioner that sounded like a jet engine every time it turned on, woke us up all night long!

watch out for crazies.

Being near 3rd street bars is great, but we ended up getting crank called, as well as knockkkockditched at 3 in the morning. Beware.

Smart Innovative hotel, great location

On the riverwalk - easy to get to bars and restuarants. Hotel staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Facility was fantastic - view from riverview room was fantastic. Green hotel - opt out of daily maid service (keep your sheets and towels) and get a $5 voucher to use in "snack bar." Compliementary coffee and super gym. Splash pool had great location (small, but it is called a splash pool). The only slightly annoying thing was that the light switches were not easy to understand.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Find the Safe House on front street- very interesting bar (speak easy) that requires a password for entry (if you don't know the password, be prepared to act silly to get in). Also, take a tour Lake Front brewing (try to take the tour with Andy).
