My seven year old and I stayed there because it is the closest hotel with a pool to the Bradley Center. The pool was open 24hrs which was convenient, but the pool is not really made for much more than cooling off. It is very small. He enjoyed it enough but there was just the two of us in there....

This is our get away from Chicago and always works great. We take our dogs which I love as there is no fee and they give you dog beds and bowls. Very pet friendly! Kids love the pool and pool table. For a family I recommend getting the connecting rooms for extra space.

Loved it! The hotel was amazing .. great river view. The staff wasn't overly friendly, but the place was beautifully designed. It was super clean as well had a great little bar area and super cool community space.

Like other "Aloft" properties, this one is minimal yet has a warm atmosphere. The bed and the shower were terrific ... though we could have used a few more drawers. The coffee in the room was dreadful but there was fresh-brewed, strong coffee available in the lobby from 6:00 a.m. onwards. Finally, the barmen were generous in their pours: much...

Stayed there on business. Property itself is nice but VERY noisy, hard to get a good night's sleep. ROOMS: The room itself was nice, would rate it between a 3-4. King size bed that was comfortable, desk for working, some room to move around. Clean and modern. The problem was that it was continually noisy at night. I think part...

I have stayed in many hotels but this one is overrated. Small area for check in parking made check in a nightmare. We had to switch rooms due to a loud noise in the hallway. The next room had a leaky running toilet, sheets and pillows smelled like they had been sprayed with Lysol. Bed and pillows were uncomfortable. Over...

Room was good size for our stay. Comfortable bed. Good layout of the space. Complimentary water and coffee in the lobby area was nice. Also,...

We loved our stay at the Aloft! The room had an efficient layout, and was comfortable and clean. The bed was superb. The hotel is very well located. We arrived in town to watch a hockey game at the MSOE arena. We found it easy to walk to great restaurants, and the river walk. We also walked to the Art...

This hotel is relatively new and very nice. The best part of this hotel is probably its location. Several of Milwaukee's best restaurants and bars are within walking distance and it is very close to the River Walk. The downside of this hotel is noise from the road. The room was very noisy at night as the cars on the...

“Upper floors, river views.”

“Ask for a room NOT overlooking the river if you want QUIET. Loudness depends on how occupied the property is and what's going on outside.”
 of 5 bubbles Mom_in_Iowa_11, 6 Feb 2017 | Read review
“If you would like a view of downtown ,ask for a Juneau Ave or river room facing out.”
