We always try to stay here when visiting Milwaukee. The staff is always top notch, the hotel is beautiful and we love the added feature of the concierge lounge. Definitely worth the price of the upgrade and well worth it. We love this hotel!!!

Very nice hotel and the ambiance in the lobby is beautiful. If you don't want to go far, the food and entertainment is right there. Everything else is within walking distance. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were very clean and comfortable.

This historic hotel has retained all of it's classic charms while maintaining the most modern of amenities. The artwork that adorned the lobby and public areas of... More

My husband recently surprised me with a night stay The Pfister! We were married almost one year ago and at that time we couldn't decide if we should stay here or at the Intercontinental downtown Milwaukee. We ended up staying at the Intercon the night of our wedding but I secretly was disappointed that it wasn't the Pfister! Although the... More

Outstanding !! I was unfamiliar with the Milwaukee area and made a reservation at a hotel west of Marquette. I moved to The Pfister due to safety issues. I will always stay here when visiting my daughter in college. Close to the river, wonderful views and great service. Ask for the AAA discount if you are a member.

This hotel has a grand foyer with a beautiful mural ceiling. The guest rooms are spacious and comfortable, and extra care was given to choose the charming details that make the room, like intricate doorknobs and lovely crown moulding. It is centrally located in downtown Milwaukee among office buildings and great restaurants. Would definitely stay again. (Small note to management... More

A recent stay just goes to show that once again "excellent" is the best description for a stay at the Pfister. We took the bed and breakfast package - everything was excellent.
