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...

The Aloft Hotel was impressive both from a location standpoint and from an architectural inviting atmosphere. The staff was friendly from the time of my arrival until my departure. The room was really well kept, beautiful view of the river, comfy bed and bedding, and a wonderful shower. The only draw back I found was the hanging space but for...

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...

Great stay! Friendly front desk - quick and easy check in. Even got early check-in around noon. Great location close to a lot of restaurants - we walked to lunch and did some bar hopping. 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...
