...as other reviewers have stated, there's a bridge nearby with metal grating, and cars that drive over it pretty much all night (so it's loud). Also, the bathroom situation (where you can't close the door completely) is magnified by the fact that there isn't a fan in there. Requested a river view room on a higher floor and got it. Enjoyed the free bottled water and fridge. Room design was neat, but the lighting was either way too bright or not bright enough. Frosted glass shower that you can see in the room? Cool, but maybe not for certain situations (I'd be horrified to share one of these rooms with a family member). Parking tip: To avoid the expensive valet, use the City of Milwaukee parking garage:
4th and Highland Garage
324 W. Highland Blvd.
Milwaukee, WI 53203

It was only about a block away, covered and safe. Meters nearby required quarters and were a quarter per 10 minutes (we didn't have that many quarters). Overnight weekend parking was $6...not bad. Dining tip: AJ Bombers is about a block away and has super delicious burgers. (it's been featured on many shows on Travel Channel) Bar district is also stumbling distance if you're into that sort of thing.

Room Tip: Just ask. I do have SPG, but am just a general member now.

Great review of the parking situation as well as the dining tip, AJ's is one of the staffs picks to send guests to. Sorry to hear about the bridge noise, but the good news is that the City is working on helping us remeduy that situation as we speak!

This was my first stay in Aloft hotel, a low cost version owned by the W hotel brand. For about $100 I had a king room with a comfortable bed, extra pillows, a large flat screen TV, free WiFi, and a great shower.
I have 2 complaints; noise transferred from the hallway into the room too easily and as someone else mentioned the bathroom is completely exposed when the door is opened. If the door was hinged on the opposite side a person walking down the hallway wouldn’t have a view of a guy in briefs shaving in front of the sink when his wife/gf opened the door, as happened to me while walking to my room.
Even with the peek-a-boo bathroom, I would return if I could grab a room for about $100 or so. Water street bars and restaurants are only a couple of blocks away and the hotel has a sense of style that’s appeals to me.

Great location just north of Old World 3rd St. along the Milwaukee River. Within walking distance to everything in downtown and especially close to Edelweiss Cruise lines for a night on the river or Sunday Brunch cruise. Modern and trendy, so I would suggest it as a great place for an adults-only stay.

Room Tip: Cheapest rate would be the 2nd night 50% rate compared with other deals.

I stayed here twice for business and will definitely return. The location is great because it is surrounded by restaurants within walking distance and is easily accessible to the highway.
Everyone is friendly and helpful and the rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed. I worked out the last time I stayed here and the gym did the job for what I needed.
