Rooms are at prem. pricing during this time ($300 ++;$31 parking etc) Our 1st room wasn't as reserved/charged/paid; we moved to a second, which was LV but not a King. One floor up -Rooftop bar had live music with loud bass... More

Although I don't usually stay at expensive hotels, I was with a family group in Milwaukee for a wedding. We got a "wedding rate" on our rooms, and it was convenient to be at the same location. The hotel was lovely, historic, and catered to the needs of many who required hair, makeup and nails done for the wedding. The... More

I absolutely loved staying at this beautiful hotel. Our room included access to the private club on the 23rd floor which had a beautiful view of the city. Hussein, who works in the club, is an excellent host. Very friendly, personable, and attentive to the guests. I also enjoyed talking with the concierge Roc. It was fun hearing about the... More

Beautifully maintained grand old hotel with updated fixtures and furnishings. Only one big negative. Who decided it was a good idea to charge a fee for rutgut wine on their club level lounge? On a weekend, the club level hospitality room didn't open until 5PM

I was only there for 1 night and 1 day, so a very short visit. Sadly, I missed dinner with the group the evening before the meetings, but I heard it was very good. Because I got in so late and missed dinner, I chose to eat in the newly reopened Café. The service was wonderful, but the salad I... More

Our room was ready when needed and very luxurious. The staff was very attentive and always willing to please. The food at its Café was fairly priced and very good. We loved our stay at the hotel and would also chose the Pfister as our "get away" place whenever we visit Milwaukee.

I booked a room for two nights for my boss. At the last minute, he had to cancel the first night -- but wanted to keep the second night. I called the Pfister -- told them explicitly to cancel the first night -- but under no circumstances were they to cancel the second night. They assured me over and over... More

Everything was perfect! We even saw a few members of the band that we saw in concert at the bar afterwards. It was a great trip! The room was beautiful, the bar on the 23rd floor was fun and the music was great!
