I stayed at the Astor for a conference. It was reasonable in price and just off the beaten path. But only a mile to downtown. The rooms were clean and had a vintage feel. Which I loved. The best part of my experience was the customer service. Everyone from the desk staff to the waitresses were friendly and helpful. I... More

Stayed here for a quick visit (1 night). I also wanted to check it out in case we wanted to use for an upcoming wedding. The hotel has its charms - loved the historic door and the rooms had a historic yet somewhat updated feel. Downsides came with the rooms not being soundproof at all. You could hear everything going... More

You know you are in someplace special when the door to the room has a regular old key and double sided doors where the dry cleaned clothing was left when returned to its rightful owner. Plenty of hot water, comfortable bed and in the room satelite TV (Internet was included). And several blocks away from Lake Michigan. Would do it... More

1st off, our room was non smoking and it was clean. Walking distance to lots of places. Great eating places near by too. Room was small, quaint but all we needed as we were only sleeping there. What we expected from a 100 year old building. Hot water rad heater, room was 1000 degrees when we opened the door. Turned... More

I, too, made the mistake of staying here and the Astor now tops my list of "worst domestic hotel experience." My husband and I arrived in Milwaukee separately and he was the first to check in. He went through two rooms, each of which were small, rundown, loud, dirty, with cracked walls, chipped paint, old bedding, and one with a... More

This is probably the worst hotel experience I have ever had. We walked into the small, dark room and immediately my dust allergies went crazy. I only am affected by a large amount of dust and I could hardly breathe. The bed was not study and was only and creaky. The comforter was just a bunch of huge feather lumps... More

I had blocked off rooms at the Astor Hotel for my wedding. I did not have my wedding reception or ceremony there, but that did not affect the type of service I received. I blocked off rooms at several other hotels in the area and can say that I received the best service at the Astor Hotel. I dealt mostly... More

This was the worst hotel I have stayed at in a long time with a cramped dark room, a shower that went down to a dribble if someone else was using water and a view of a brick wall out of cracked window. When we checked in our room smelled overwhelmingly of smoke and was very hot and there are... More

I really wanted to like the Astor. I like historic hotels, and this one has family history attached, with wedding receptions going back to the 30's and 40's. I wasn't completely disappointed, but on balance, unfortunately, the negatives outweighed the positives. I reserved several rooms at the Astor for a family wedding this past weekend. Of the 6 rooms (all... More

I stayed at the Astor for 2 weeks in Sept/Oct of 2013. Location is the elegant old area of the city, just 2 or 3 blocks from the Lakefront, and very close to the downtown. The lobby still retains the elegance of 100 years ago, right down to the quiet music in the background ... "cocktail music" of the 1930's... More
