I recently had a mix-up with an upcoming reservation. Contacted the hotel to try and resolve, and to my surprise I received a follow up phone call from not just a manager, but the owner! He was pleasant and helpful and did everything he could to make me feel like a valued customer. He fully explained the hotel's error, and... More

Had to figure out a place to... More

Its not a chain. Which is refreshing. I prefer them not to be generic. Its got character! Dont expect the sheraton because this got some refreshing quirk yo it. Totally clean, nice and helpful staff, and a great deal location and free/included parking.

The staff there is very nice. There is NO AIR CONDITIONING and you don't control your own heat. I liked the old world charm however it needs cleaned and updated. On a plus, the shower pressure was great and the towels were in good shape. The bed was comfortable with nice linens.

We stayed for one night, and were not disappointed. Great location. Comfortable double bed. Very clean. This is a hotel built in the 1920s with few updates, so it still has a lot of charm. If you're expecting a 5 star hotel at a 3 star price, you may be disappointed. It's not the Hilton. We would definitely come back!

The USP of this hotel is its location. Its just about walking distance from downtown and the lake. Its clean and well maintained. There is a supermarket in the immediate vicinity. The room is cramped up, there is no natural lighting. Not much of amenities in the room - no fridge or microwave.

I booked this hotel because it was about a 1/2 mile from downtown and they advertised complimentary shuttle service within a 2 mile radius on their website. Check-in time is typically at 4pm and we were able to check in at noon which was great and I discussed with them at the time of check in that we were interested... More

The Astor is a great hotel with old style. The hotel is within walking distance of several museums, lots of restaurants, and the great Italian area of Milwaukee. Be sure to head to the roof for beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the city.
