Not as quiet as we had hoped.

Location: The location is great - walking distance to Third Ward and lots of restaurants and bars.
I'd stay at an Aloft again, but it wouldn't be my first choice. It was really noisy - we could hear people in the hallway, the party next door, people walking above, and street noise. In addition, the modern and open design allows for very little privacy from bathroom to sleeping area; there's no door to block out light, and the sliding door to the shower and toilet really doesn't do much. I'm also one who likes a softer mattress, and theirs is super firm! The staff was very nice, and everything very clean, but it just wasn't as peaceful as we had hoped.

Busy but well run during Milwaukee music fest.

Pros: location, well run
Cons: a bit noisy between rooms but nothing to fret about
Location: Bars, food and close to major event centers
Clean, parking fast and hotel well run. Room is on the smaller side but great layout and efficient. Nice bed and room can be temperature control but a bit loud when set to automatic since the fan goes on and off a lot. Over for the money, the Aloft is a great deal. Location is close to all the good places to go and an easy walk to most all of the downtown area.

Downtown on the river, Milwaukee

Pros: Modern design, cool room layout, nice bed.
Cons: Tell people how the heater control works, my room did not heat during some times and was cold unless I increased the temps each time I entered the roo
This new ALoft in downtown Milwaukee is a couple blocks from the Bradley Center and on the edge of a lot of empty land, which is slated for the new arena. To the north is the old brewing area of Blatz and Schlitz. There are a lot of interesting bars and restaurants a few blocks to the south, east and west. The hotel is nice and new and clean. The staff is helpful and friendly. Parking is valet at the hotel with only a few temporary spots available at the entrance. More parking available on the street right on McKinley or on 3rd street north of McKinley. The wifi was easy to connect to everyday. The food area had food available all the time, and was staffed in the morning for a quick breakfast bite. By participating in the GreenProgram and waived cleaning of my room for several days, which gets you a $5 card good at the food area.

Comfortable, chic hotel

Pros: Location on the river; friendly staff.
Location: Close to Mader's German restaurant and Usinger's historic sausage shop, plus all the bars and restaurants on 3rd St. Downtown walkable.
Spent 2 nights here during a weekend when 6,000 trialthetes were in town. Hotel was busy; staff was very friendly and helpful. Don't know if it was a glitch or the way the hotel operates: we chose the green option, thinking that our towels and bedding would not be changed, but housekeeping never visited, even to rinse out the sink and shower.

Pros: location, clean
Cons: bar staff
Location: restaurants, Bradley center, so many places you can walk to
Great place to stay and great location. The hotel staff was wonderful except for the bar staff. If you want a relaxing cocktail at this place go somewhere else. And if you are hoping to get a cocktail when the bar is open they will close when they feel like it. Great location great hotel.

Favorite place to stay

My husband and i enjoyed our stay at Aloft. We only had a minor issue that our tv quit working half - way through the night, but that was not anyone's fault. Very clean hotel, very friendly staff, and convenient valet!
