Beginning this week, Milwaukee-area wedding and meeting planners will have two new facilities to choose from at the Aloft® Milwaukee Downtown. The hotel has finished construction on two new banquet rooms and an attached staging area, catering services space and restrooms.
The larger of the two rooms (called “Riverview Ballroom”) measures 2,200 square feet and features a south-facing window wall with views of the downtown skyline, as well as a connection to the hotel’s outdoor courtyard area, which is adjacent to the Riverwalk. It will be suitable for receptions or meetings of up to 200 people. The smaller room (“Tactic 4/5”) is 1,400 square feet and features south- and west-facing window walls. It will be suitable for receptions or meetings of up to 110 people. Both rooms are connected to the new staging, catering services and restroom areas.
“Our new wedding and meeting facilities fill a void in this market,” said Aloft® Milwaukee GM Ryan Miyamoto. “With their skyline views, Riverwalk access and optional outdoor space, they are unique to the downtown area.”
