I've been to the Pfister a number of times, but had the pleasure of staying overnight for the first time recently. The hotel is just stunning and the staff was over the top accommodating. They allowed us to change our reservations twice & the service was excellent upon check-in & throughout our stay as well. The views are unbeatable, and... More

A portal to an otherwise bygone era, that's the Pfister. From the moment I walked through the doors I could tell that I was part of something unique to Milwaukee's history. The check in area feels so guiltily lavish. The Cathedral ceiling in the main room with the word "SALVE" written high on opposing walls, which is a traditional Latin... More

OK, some of the art isn't "great" but a LOT of it is - and boy, is there a lot! Just the history and look of this building is pretty incredible. Our room was comfortable and fine, and both the bar & pool on floor 23 has a bangin' view of the city. Easy recommendation; we got decent deal online... More

Freshened up with some current amenities. Solid business hotel with a good location. I would stay there again. Something a bit different form the Ritz (not that that's an option here!). The bar is nice for a late night bite, and the service is very hospitable.

The tower rooms are very nice, spacious, super clean and sunny with modern updated bathrooms. The hotel location is perfect. There's a wonderful lounge and bar with generous pours of wine. The restaurant in the hotel Mason Street Grill is absolutely the best. This is one of my favorite hotels.

My room was in the circle tower which has been revamped in the past couple years. Very nice rooms except the tv is only about 32" which is a bit small... More

This place its first class! I felt like royalty coming here. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the facilities are gorgeous, and the staff is top rate. The wifi is not uber fast but my room had a fridge. The room was quiet and very clean. A great place for a wedding night!
