Visited for daughter's birthday. A birthday note, bottle of milk and small and four large cookies were left in our room after dinner. Work of the young lady who checked us in and overheard discussions of birthday. Terrific surprise. Kids also enjoyed the indoor pool with great view. Looking forward to visiting again.

The wife and I went here for the wknd prior to the Big Harley wknd and had a blast. Upon entering we thought it a bit stuffy and from the surface the crowd a lot older and more stately than our liking. But deciding to cast away our immediate judgement we found the hotel to inviting, detail oriented and the... More

Our daughter and son-in-law celebrated their wedding on August 24th in the Imerial Ballroom. It was beautiful. The service and decor were exceptional. The meal was an event and absolutely delicious. Every detail was attended to. We couldn't have been more pleased or proud. Thank you!

Being a business traveller you always look for a place which should be good and calm during the evenings and opens an early breakfast in the mornings. The lounge services for the club members is pretty good. Located at the top floor you can sip a drink with snacks with the beautiful Lake Michigan view

The Pfister Hotel has been around for a long time for good reason. It is elegant and friendly. Although the hotel is very old everything is very clean and up-to-date. The staff is very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The bedding was so comfortable that I plan to call the hotel to find out what... More

This is a very nice hotel and I would stay there again but, it is starting to show a lot of wear in the rooms. Although the rooms are clean, they need some new carpet and more electrical outlets near the beds to charge your cell phone (I use mine as an alarm clock). I had to unplug the lamp... More

Great service and food. Had a drink in the bar on the roof that had unreal views of downtown and Lake Michigan. All windows accross... More

Overall The Pfister Hotel is something to be proud of. It clearly is iconic for Milwaukee and I am thankful for the business in this city. We recently (couple of days ago) had our reception at the Pfister. The wedding was great and the service rooms, drinks, were everything I could have asked for. But I want to separate the... More

I stayed at the Pfister Hotel for the Irish Festival weekend and it was a nice stay, comfortable, but nothing exceptional to warrant the price. This is actually my 3rd time staying at the Pfister. I have to say the location is excellent, right on Wisconsin Avenue a short walk to the festival grounds and also many restaurants. The Hotel... More
