We spent one night at the hotel when our family went to see a show at the Uihlein Hall Marcus Center. They are quite close in proximity - if I weren't so pregnant, we would have just walked there from the hotel. Pfister is a beautiful and historic place and the service was incredible. We stayed in a suite and... More

I loved my stay here . It was wonderful. Loved the Lounge on the 23rd floor and the Jazz was great. Woke up feeling new and refreshed. Would recommend the to anyone that likes the downtown attractions. Some things are within walking distance. Restaurants on property as well as off property. Loved the view from the upper level, you can... More

The Pfister Hotel is a downtown Milwaukee landmark. It has a spectacular lobby, a nice bar on the 23rd floor and a great location. We went for a weekend getaway and had a wonderful stay. We got the package that allowed use of the the Club Lounge on the 23r floor and the free buffet breakfast for a reasonable price.... More

This hotel was better than we expected. i don't usually like to stay in older hotels but it had such high ratings I thought we would give it a shot: 1. The staff was great. Very pleasant and helpful. 2. We stayed in an updated room. I would recommend requesting an updated room. It felt like new. Not just a... More

Every city has its superior and highly esteemed hotel. In Milwaukee, the Jewel of the Nile is The Pfister Hotel. It is "the" place that everyone around here holds to a high standard. I had a chance to come here to see if it would meet my picky standards; I've had some nice experiences at roadside motels and disappointing times... More

They were all true. The staff is wonderful and the views are impeccable. We had cocktails at Blu and... More

I've lived in Milwaukee for years, and never had the chance to stay here. I recently stayed with two friends, and was amazed at the quality of the hotel. The guilded lobby makes you think you should be wearing a tux (some people were, given an event happening in the hotel). Amenities are amazing - comfortable beds, wonderful toiletries, expertly...
