The staff and facility were first class and made our stay most enjoyable.
The valet attendants were wonderful. They gave us great recommendations for restaurants, remembered us as we grabbed our car multiple times, and were quick with getting the car. We were there for the Hal marathon and one of the attendants probably saw as many miles as we did getting the unusual line of people's cars at 6 a.m. He kept his smile on and joked around as he left multiple times to get cars.
Clean, comfortable beds, room amenities, very polite and friendly staff Only negative is a mandatory 20 dollar per night valet fee, but that may be standard for the downtown
I loved the beds and the cold bottles of water in the rooms. Transportation. With the State Fair going on, I would have liked to have seen transportation to the fair.
I liked the cleanliness of the hotel, I also really enjoyed getting free cookies at check in and the location.
Great central location. Nice clean hotel and friendly staff. Comfortable beds and efficient service There were no refrigerators or microwaves as told me I would have on the confirmation sheet
Walkable distance to shopping and restaurants, and other downtown attractions. Breakfast buffet at the hotel was delicious!
Courteous staff, great decor, and clean room. The amount of endless noise in the hallway ALL night. Several parties were screaming from outside to someone staying on our floor.
Loved the design, decor and features. Hip & modern without the overkill. Comfortable beds and spotless rooms.
The location is excellent, great views of the river and right next to the river walk. Within walking distance to some really great restaurants. Quiet, and the room was very comfortable! No parking lot, so you either pay to park or pay for valet service. Also, no free breakfast so we had to pay almost $30 just to eat breakfast.
Cool rooms Kinda dirty guys. House keeping woke me up and I had already called for late check out. Not cool
I liked that it was near a lit of fun bars and restaurants. I also thought it was fun and had a very cool look to it! Beds we a little hard.
The showers are nice. The blinds are really poor. You need thicker blinds to keep the light out. You can't keep the blinds open and expect to have any sort of privacy. The door from the shower to the rest of the room does not seal, so coming out of the shower is freezing. The walls are paper thin and you can hear EVERYTHING from surrounding rooms. They say the mattresses are firm. There are not firm.
There basically is no room. You feel cramped from the moment you arrive and realize you cannot pull up to the door and cannot park. Very casual staff. Maybe the 30 year olds like things this way. We do not. We will not be back.
Friendly staff, modern and comfortable accommodations, free water in the room. Great location, valet parking was mid-priced at $25 per day. We chose Aloft because I've stayed at the properties in other cities and had a similarly pleasant experience. And we had to find a place with a swimming pool. Aloft ion Milwaukee is well worth it. not much to dislike as we stayed for one night and the experience was very good.
Nice bed Nice staff I was disappointed that the front desk person did not know what bus to take to get to the airport.
Convenient location for our needs. Dirty. Blood on the back of the bathroom door. Poor drainage in bathroom. Shabby. Very poor internet connection. Very much overpriced -- I've stayed in lovely boutique hotels in the Chicago Loop for less.
Right next to Amtrak Air conditioning wasn't working, terrible for the late summer. Elevators weren't working correctly either.
Location was good for what I was there for. Staff was friendly. Rooms were adequate. Dated decore, bathroom showers kind of dirty. Long hairs still on shower walls. Homeless people were sitting out front. Price was high for this condition of hotel. Not likely to stay again
The bed and pillows were comfortable enough and thankfully looked clean. Front desk staff were friendly. Parking is free, but in an unsecured lot behind the hotel. This hotel has not been kept up. It's in poor shape - lots of things that need to be repaired/replaced, fixtures partially off the wall. It also needs to be deep cleaned - some things, like the light switch, were so dirty that I didn't want to touch them. There was a huge gap under the door, which is both unsafe and bad for noise. Not worth what they charge. I would not stay there again.
Our room was broken into and things were stolen. The overnight guy at the desk was not helpful. The hotel did not offer an apology or look into who could have entered our room. Bad experience!
It is in Milwaukee and so was I. Pretty shabby. I wouldn't call it dirty, but it was hardly gleaming. It clearly hasn't been updated in decades. It is "downtown," but not really near anything. No exhaust fan in the bathroom. Thermostat didn't apparently do anything. If you are desperate for a room in downtown Milwaukee...
Friendly staff was the ONLY bright spot, everything else was terrible. Per the previous reviews, I was expecting a rude staff, but the reality was that the staff is friendly. It's the facilities that are terrible and any hotel would/should be ashamed of (ESPECIALLY being situated downtown). - 1 of 2 elevators functions ("functions" used loosely) - walls, ceilings and carpets are old and stained - room furniture was cheap and archaic - A/C did not work, hot air vented at all settings (room was unbearably hot) - bathtub drain was clogged and water did not drain - plain and simple, if the rest of the rooms are like the one my wife and I stayed in, the entire hotel NEEDS to be revamped/remodeled - based on this stay we will not be staying at a Ramada again
Leaving Everything besides leaving
It was downtown Dated and not the cleanest. Loud, and extra charges on my card at the end...
The location was perfect The air conditioner didn't work and it was extremely hot and uncomfortable
Location Breakfast buffet for $8.95 was reasonable Beds were lumpy and slanted Floors were damp Hallways were stinky and damp TV was a box TV that only got one channel Temperature control didn't work well
Ambiance and location were great. The corner room on the 15th floor had a great view. Elevators could be quicker.
Location The fitness center was good-I wished there was a lap pool. The computers in the business center were slow and hard to get into the internet at times.
Everything was very clean and the staff were very helpful. Expensive parking. Could've parked somewhere else in the city for much cheaper. There were a lot of business people there and no family attractions such as a pool.
Competent and helpful staff. The business center was experiencing technical difficulties but the front desk staff were happy to print our boarding passes for us.
We got a free upgrade for our stay as all the rooms were not full nothing
Free Hot Breakfast Location Comfy bed When we checked in it was about 75 degrees fahrenheit outside... and about 80 degrees in our hotel room. It was very hot and muggy, and the windows did not open. The air conditioning was not working at all and the staff was totally unconcerned about remedying the situation. They tried telling us that everything was working fine, but of course it was not. The only thing the hotel did to fix it was to give us a box fan. They told us that it would cool off at night... but it did not. Multiple people complained but nothing was done to accommodate us or to compensate us for the inconvenience. Staff was at worst, rude, and at best, disinterested. When we checked in at 3:00 on a Thursday they only had 1 person working so we had to wait a very long time to check in. The bathroom was leaking water from the ceiling above the sink. The furniture in the room was worn and in need of repair or replacement. For $20 more a night we could have stayed somewhere much nicer.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Great experience for my first trip to Milwaukee. Would absolutely stay here again for sure!
Was very happy to stay here. Clean and beautiful. Loved breakfast, but they need to season the scrambled eggs on the breakfast buffet.
We loved that the hotel was close to everything in Milwaukee. We also loved that there was a pool, exercise room, and free breakfast.
Location of the hotel was excellent. I was visiting the Harley Museum and this was only a short drive from the hotel. Getting from the parking lot to the hotel was not that easy. In the end there were about 4 of us wondering round the parking garage trying to find the entrance. But once inside the hotel was very nice
clean hotel and nice employees Pool was very small
Unfortunately the pool area was under construction while we were there which was one of the main reasons we had booked this particular hotel. Also, the room the we stayed in (423 I think) only had one small window that was so high that I had to stand on a chair to see out, but then it only looked to the other side of the building and a roof. It was a bit like a dark hole, but we decided that maybe they put us in that room because there aren't any adjoining rooms & we had an infant?
Nice rooms and very comfortable beds. The complimentary breakfast was also very good. It's in a good location for downtown activities. Staff was very friendly and responded quickly to request for service. The room was clean, but dated. The carpet needs replacing and fixtures need some minor repairs or upkeep. For the price of the room, the parking should be included.
The staff were all very pleasant, the decor divine (elegant/classy). And the breakfast was GREAT! Nice convenient location, easy access to shopping and theaters galore. I love visiting Mikwaukee, there's so much to do especially downtown. What a treat!! There was an odor in our room occasionally (the only thing I can akin it to was raw sewage). While it wasn't continually present it did waft through a couple of times and I was left to wondering what the heck it was or where it was coming from. I didn't address my concern with the staff, as it wasn't a continual odor and reminded myself it is an older building (it's on the National Register of historic places) and these things cans/do happen. My bed however was slightly lopsided and that made for a little bit of uncomfortableness. My only other concern was the amount of panhandlers out on the street near the building. While that's not the hotels fault, I do feel their staff should make certain at all times their guests are not bothered by them especially when walking to the surface parking lot which is about a block away.
The staff was nice Our room had bugs in it and we asked for a queen bed but were given two twin beds, which was aggrivating
Free Internet, Clean room, Convent parking in the garage just opposite, good location The windows + curtain mechanism was lousy...There should be proper windows in the room.
It was a very nice hotel for the price and I got an upgrade because of the problem with the reservation.
comfortable bed, big room, clean & updated bathroom
Downtown close to good food and entertainment. Staff had great suggestions for places to go see small rooms but comfortable bed.
Close proximity to the downtown hotspots (food and bars) suited us perfectly!
It is a hotel in a very convenient location, right in the downtown Milwaukee area. Also has a pretty cool restaurant/bar in the basement. The hotel staff was also very nice. No
The room was ready for me by 10:00 am None
location, economical beds
The location is great, the rooms are clean and comfortable and a great value for the money.

Very interesting architecture with incorporating the former beer kettles of Pabst into the design of the hotel.
