Our family just spent a long weekend in Milwaukee for a friends wedding and we stayed at the Pfister. I've been lucky enough to stay at some really great hotels during my travels but this has to be one of the best anywhere...this is a 5 star hotel with lots of history. By-the-way the art collection in this historic hotel... More

Such a beautiful experience to have stayed at the Pfister. Everything was perfect, including the quality of food when we ordered room service after a long day in the city. I would highly recommend a visit here to experience the history and architecture of the original Pfister hotel. They did add an addition and the connection is nearly seemless on... More

I want to start off by saying, I have reviewed this hotel 2 other times and for the 3rd time this place never fails us. It was perfect from beginning to end. Our children joined us this trip and their fist thought was, it is waaaay better than they thought it would be. We allowed them to take advantage of... More

We loved this hotel so much, we extended our stay. The hotel was sold out, but the management was flexible enough to make it work without us having to change rooms. Everything about this hotel was top notch. The service was great every where we went. You must stay here if you find yourself in Milwaukee!

Romance just spills out of this hotel. 122 years old and the place is well maintained. Beautiful views, elegant rooms and even if you were just to walk through the lobby and have a cocktail you won't be disappointed. Jazz late night in all of the restaurants and food is fresh and tasty. Worth a visit or stay.

Whenever I'm in Milwaukee I try to stay at the Pfister. I've been coming here since it was renovated a number of years ago & it is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is very friendly & helpful, and although the rooms are a bit smaller that one might find in a new construction hotel, they are very comfortable... More

My wife and I live about 30 miles west of Milwaukee and the Pfister Hotel. We enjoy all that Milwaukee has to offer, especially the excellent restaurants and entertainment opportunities. About once a month or so, we choose to stay downtown to immerse ourselves in the downtown vibe - with no worries about driving. While there are many very nice... More

We live just an hour from Milwaukee but come to the Pfister every time we visit. It's at a perfect location: three blocks from Riverwalk; three blocks from museum and lakeside. The lobby has a grande ballroom look which makes you wish you were wearing a tie and fedora. And the piano bar in the lobby has comfy couches and... More
