I chose the Pfister because of it's history and rating. I was woken up at 11 PM while they were's resetting the banquet room above my room, the carts rolling across the floor sound like a jet taking off. After calling the front desk three times and 20 minutes later they finally stopped. Only to start again at 5:15 AM.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights September 8-10 for business meeting. Hotel has either tower rooms or rooms in the older section. I was told by a friend staying in the older section that his room was huge and actually nicer than the tower section but I cant confirm because I didn't see it. I was in the tower and the... More

The best! Having just stayed a month ago here in Milwaukee (see my review of the Hyatt Regency), I knew almost any other hotel experience would be better - the Pfister was not only better, but probably the best I have had in most cities. From the desk being able to extend our stay in the same room, to the... More

We were in a tower room and there were no noises. The fan/heater was silent, the bed didn't make a squeak, and we heard nothing from any other room. The hotel is really lovely. I would suggest watching the video about the hotel on channel 3, I think. Take a walk around the halls of the historic side of the... More

We booked this hotel to enjoy some baseball games between the Cardinals and Brewers. The traveling baseball teams often stays at this hotel, if your baseball fan. The hotel is conveniently located downtown and is within walking distance of many restaurants and the lake. Bus service to the ballpark is easy and inexpensive, a great option. The hotel has very...

My husband and I just ended a four day stay for an engineering conference. My husband chose this hotel for the conference, so we were hoping it would work out well. To say it was wonderful may be an under statement. All of the over 200 attendees raved about the hotel and the staff. Many said that it was the... More

Had a wonderful one night stay recently at The Pfister. Great location in downtown Milwaukee within walking distance of many great restaurants, pubs, and night spots, including "Blu", the Pfisters club on their 23rd floor. Parking is attached to the hotel and is under roof. Check-in was courteous, friendly, thorough, and efficient. The room was fabulous, with a great view... More

Gorgeous hotel. Truly a classic if you appreciate things of a bygone era. Beautiful artwork throughout. On the list of historical hotels in the US. We travel to Milwaukee once a year for work related activities and have tried other downtown hotels. In our opinion, you can't beat the Pfister for accommodations, location and service. Meals, whether breakfast, lunch, or... More

My husband and I love classic architecture. This hotel's pedigree was a strong drawing card. Everything about this hotel exudes elegance and charm. Ornate craftsmanship in the décor and structure. The staff is beyond reproach, helpful and friendly as if you're a friend, not just another guest passing through. We stayed in a 2-room suite on the mezzanine level. There... More
