Aloft and Pfister make lists

Two downtown Milwaukee hotels recently made a couple of best-of lists on

The 160-room Aloft Hotel at 1230 N. Old World Third St. was listed No. 8 on TripAdvisor’s top 25 list of “trendiest hotels in the United States.”

The 307-room Pfister Hotel at 424 E. Wisconsin Ave. was listed No. 13 on TripAdvisor’s top 25 list of the top luxury hotels in the U.S.

The rankings are based on millions of reviews and opinions from travelers around the world. The lists were part of TripAdvisor’s 10th annual Travelers’ Choice Awards.

The downtown Milwaukee Aloft Hotel, one of 43 Aloft hotels in the U.S., opened in 2009 along the Milwaukee River. It ranked ahead of hotels such as the Hilton New York Fashion District hotel (15) and the W Hotel in San Francisco (24) on the TripAdvisor trendiest hotels list.

“We strive to deliver an amazing and unique experience to each and every person that walks through our door,” said Ryan Miyamoto, general manager of the Milwaukee Aloft Hotel. “Aloft hotels are modern and contemporary leaders in the travel and hospitality industry. We couldn’t be happier to bring this brand to Milwaukee, and we look forward to continuing to cater to those travelers who know high quality and are one step ahead of the latest trends.”

Built in 1893, the Pfister Hotel is owned by Milwaukee-based The Marcus Corp. It ranked ahead of hotels such as the Four Seasons Resort Maui (16), Wynn Las Vegas (17), Bellagio Las Vegas (22) and the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago (24) on the TripAdvisor top luxury hotel list.
