Please note: I asked one lady who was staying at the Hotel Astor what she thought and she said she loved it. She said she loves old things. I would advise you to avoid if possible. I've stayed in old "renovated" hotels that were fun to stay in with an 'old grand elegance' charm. Unfortunately that is not the case... More

Terrible experience. Dirty, not maintained, air conditioning not working well, gaps in the windows with Air conditioner. Worst lodging experience I ever had. Elevator got stuck fire dept had to come and rescue people from it. Waited 1/2 hr at reception desk to get service.

My daughter was recently married and we had the wedding reception at the Astor. We blocked 25 rooms. The hotel is not new or renovated, but clean and the staff of the hotel is very accommodating. Our problems came two days before the wedding reception when there was a water leak from a shower in one of the apartments above... More

Astor Hotel was the first place I stayed in Milwaukee when I arrived. I ended up staying three times. My first visit was four nights in a rather small room. However I was not in the room much and it was clean, quiet and dark so I got a good sleep. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and the... More

Built in the 20s, the Astor has charm that most hotels do not. The lobby is beautiful, the room was perfect, and the location was great. The only thing I want crazy about was the hallway had kind of an odd scent.

We waited too late to book several rooms for a conference in Milwaukee and ended up here. Although the website lists air conditioned rooms, they were not (nor heated). Even with my windows open, I burned up all night while a coworker froze to death, and they were out of portable heaters for use. As I type this, there is... More

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
