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).

Great price Great Hotel

I had a great experience at Aloft. The hotel was very modern and fun. They had salsa dancing and tacos in the lobby. The pool was pretty small, and I wished they had a jacuzzi, but other than that, great times!

Wedding traveler

Very friendly staff greeted us on arrival in town for awedding. Nice clean room, but the hotel does cater to a younger crowd which means occasionally noisy hallways. Very nice bar/sitting area in lobby. Very convenient to events at the Bradley Center.

Hotel by Ikea - Cheap, noisy

Very disappointed by Aloft. New building, but very cheaply built. We could hear noise outside, from the rooms next to us, above us, below us and from the hall. Barely slept. Even worse, they rented out the already small lobby for a party, so we had to elbow past people just to get to the elevators. We paid for that lobby too. Expected more from Starwood. Only bright spots were friendly, helpful staff and great location.

Good Leisure Trip

Our purpose was for leisure. A few bad things that I didn't like was upon inspection of our room, the tiolet seat had dirty splash marks all over tiolet seat. The hand & face towels were stained. I informed the front desk & they sent someone up right away. The room doors are pretty thin. You can hear the hallway noise, people coming & going from their rooms, peoples talking, doors slamming. Other than that everything else was good, hotel staff from valet, to front desk to the bar tender. In excellent location, easy in & out. Valet parking is safe & is located across the street in view.

Friendly staff...

The staff is exceptional. Friendly & accommodating. The room was nice & modern. However, the pocket bathroom door has a gap, which doesn't allow for much privacy. That was a bit embarrassing when staff needed to get in to check our television & I was in the shower.

Better Than Expected

We needed a room for (1) night in downtown Milwaukee and did not want to stay in a run down hotel or an overpriced upscale place which were our only options. Aloft was a great value, the valet and check in were very professional and inviting. The hotel and rooms are hip with a contemporary feel. Room was clean, comfortable and sytlish! I accidentally left behind some items in the room and the staff was very helpful in returning them. We will definately return.
