Aloft Milwaukee Downtown

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Easy check and check out, the best pet friendly hotel I have ever been to, great location and nice bar are with pool table and fireplace sitting area.

They were 3 hours late getting us checked in, because they had no one to clean the rooms for us. The lobby was full of guest waiting for rooms. It was a mess.

This was our first time staying at this hotel. The staff and service were all super friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. The only problem we were dissatisfied with wad housekeeping. They didn't restock anything, or empty garbages,the only way we knew they were in there was we had a new bath towel that was rolled up next to the shower.

Staff was very horrible might as well have been staying in a prison. The night security guard was very rude and mean would not r commend staying there to anyone

Very fun modern hotel. Grated bridge is noisy on one side of the building.

Check in time was supposed to be @ 3pm. They did not have the rooms prepared for my reservation until 7pm. I was very unhappy with my experience.

Pros: two blocks from MSOE campus. Excellent choices of eating/drinking within walking distance Authentic Milwaukee experience My room had a great river view Cons: urban car noise until bars clothes No in-room info about hotel amenities, i.e. Fitness center location, lobby bar/cafe availability/hours Carpet in elevators NEEDS replacing... it was gross

Has to be the worst hotel I ever stayed at in a long time. We could not check in so they held our luggage. But returning at 5pm and still not a room ready. Then it was low light, horrible if not worst bathroom ever, and just too modern European for this USA gal. Only plus was close to ballpark. Food in lobby was just awful and costly. Worst of all, paying $269 a night for the worst ever hotel.

My family and I stayed for one night, but regardless it was a goood experience. The mini fridge needs to be update. Mine was leaking. That was the only problem

I had great time staying at the Aloft. The staff were polite and gave me everything that I needed. The lobby Is amazing. It had a bar, a pool table, and a snack bar. The fitness room had good workout equipment. I would really recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

A little expensive and took a while for valet to get my car every time, but great hotel, clean and comfortable, friendly staff and great overall experience.

The hotel is very nice. Both times friendly staff. Very nice comfortable bed. Good location downtown.

Short stay, but pleased with location and hotel experience. Loved being right by downtown.

This hotel is just fine, but nothing special. The valet parking is expensive.

The Aloft looks attractive, gave you free bottled water in the room, and had decent facilities (such as the workout room). However, the walls are so thin that I literally could hear the conversation the man in the room next to me was having (not just that I could hear he was having a conversation but I could hear exactly what he was saying and could have responded to him). I also was surprised that their only options for purchasing items you forgot (such as toothpaste) was in a literal pre-packaged kit of other items at ungodly costs. I am pretty used to being at hotels nowadays that have signs that say "forgot this, no problem we have it" and this was definitely the opposite approach, particularly given its downtown location where the nearest pharmacy shuts down at 6 pm so you can't walk anywhere to purchase forgotten items. It was an acceptable stay, but I wouldn't book there again.

Trendy hotel close to downtown, but disappointing on a number of levels. Traffic from outside was unbelievably loud! Walls seem really thin. Little things, like the bathroom door not closing all the way, mini-fridge not being really cold, not enough coffee stuff in the room, were odd. Staff was very nice however!

Good will stay again very comfortable definetlt will stay again

Close to all the nightlife and easy in and out! Nice bar area and the rooms are setup for comfort including a rain shower!

This hotel is very new and modern. The staff is especially friendly. Even though it costs extra to park, it was no problem to get our vehicle from the valet within 10 minutes of our request for it. The staff was quick to respond when we requested additional blankets. The hotel and room was very clean. I would stay at this hotel again.

Staff was great room was nice. Parking a little high.
