I had a wonderful stay at Jori's loft. The flat was very clean and comfortable. We could easily get to all the fun places in Milwaukee. Jori is a fabulous host. I would stay at one of her places anytime I can!
Needed a getaway from Chicago. Everything was great! The loft was simple with a great view looking east. there are train tracks outside, but the trains aren't going fast or honk the horn or anything. We found it to be pretty relaxing actually. Parking was easy. The TV is small, but we weren't in town to watch TV. There were snacks for us, which came in handy at 3am! The bathroom had all the amenities we would find in a hotel room. The bed was super comfortable and much nicer than our previous airbnb bed experiences. Check in and out was super easy. Jori texted us back very promptly and her housekeeper was splendid.
Fantastic place! The location cannot be beat, close to downtown as well as right in the middle of some cool bars and restaurants. The apartment was super clean and well equipt for all your needs, although it is a studio it was very spacious and there was more than enough room for 3 of us. The heated floors were awesome in the winter! Checking in/out was extremely simple and Jori was very responsive during the stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Would absolutely recommend to anyone heading up to Milwaukee.
Spent two nights in this charming and warm loft. Conveniently located and very pretty, the walls of the apartment are that cream city brick Milwaukee is known for. Also provided us with some yummy breakfast options! Great/Ideal!!!!
My colleague and I stayed here for a week on business in Milwaukee. Jori's son, Nico, met us upon arrival.
The loft is located in the Fifth Ward, just across the River from downtown and the historic Third Ward. If you are visiting the Global Water Center, it is only roughly 3 blocks away. We walked across the bridges on either 2nd/Plankinton or 1st/Water to nearly all of our appointments downtown.
The loft itself is spacious, with a very high ceiling, is very well lit, and has a comfortable seating area. No TV (there were remotes and a monitor in the room, but they didn't function). Radiant floor heating makes the floor toasty when it's cold outside. Jori stocked the loft with snacks and a continental breakfast - nice touch! Others have remarked that the loft is adjacent to an active railroad track (of course the loft is 5 floors up) - that is true, but I didn't find it necessary to use the earplugs I always carry with me (bring yours if you are sensitive to street noise). Other than that, we didn't hear a peep.
Within 4 blocks, you'll find a popular sushi restaurant, Stack'd affordable sit down burger restaurant (with lots of veggie options, too - try the mac and cheese with avocado or their signature baked beans), Colectivo - one of the the city's best known coffee shops, and a frozen yogurt shop. Walk up 1st/Water for a few minutes and you'll find the Milwaukee Public Market - no, that's not a traditional grocery - it's chock full of a variety of ethnic and traditional artisan food vendors serving both fresh (sit down or takeout) and packaged foods. Do not miss it! Free parking next door (get your lot ticket validated). Or keep waking up further into the Third Ward to find a variety of restaurants, bars, and shops.
If you opt for the indoor parking, be prepared to back your car up a steep narrow entrance ramp for about 10 yards - the space inside (the ramp leads down to a basement level) is small and there may not be enough room for you to turn your car around inside (so you will be forced to back it out).
Jori will leave you a set of phone numbers to call if you need assistance. We didn't need to. Her response to messages through airbnb is very good. In fact, she was proactive and messaged me before we arrived and during our visit in order to stay in touch.
I totally recommend this loft and would absolutely stay here again!
Thanks Jori! The place was perfect. I wanted to steal those awesome pillows and thanks for the extra touch of love with providing free snacks and breakfast! The area has fabulous dining options.
We enjoyed our stay there. It was close to downtown which was my favorite part about the loft. The interior of the room was very nice, spacious and cozy with beautiful paintings. I would recommend anyone looking for great accommodation to visit here. I will be looking forward to my next stay here soon!
We had a wonderful stay at this centrally located loft. It was quiet, clean and we had more than enough space. I booked the room last minute and Jori was not only happy to accommodate us but very responsive via email. Her son met us at the apartment when we arrived to give us the tour and answer any questions. He was available via cell phone to answer questions during our entire stay. I highly recommend this space!
This large, well-equipped room is, as the heading makes clear, a LOFT. Loft as in warehouse, in a semi-deserted warehouse district! As in deserted streets, day and night. As in really old other-side-of-the-tracks Milwaukee. In fact, freight trains rumble by just below your 5th floor windows -- day and night. (There is an elevator up to the 5th.)
Bottom line: It's different. An experience. About a mile to Wisconsin Avenue. Less to Historic Third Ward.
Didn't meet Jori, but her stepson, Nico, was very helpful...even drove us to a French restaurant (and picked us up) our first evening.
This was a great weekend getaway. Convenient location: close to the train station and downtown. Jori was great working with and Janni, the woman who got the place ready, was super accommodating when we arrived 3 hours before check-in. I would highly recommend this awesome loft!
