I often stay at the IC in Milwaukee, being a Platinum Ambassador member a upgrade is included. My room this time(usually its great) was not up to IC standards and the bathroom in particular was old and dated. The staff was great and made up for the lack of room quality. I was told later that all of the upgraded... More

Great location downtown within walking distance to many local restaurants and pubs. The standard rooms were full so we were upgraded to a suite at no cost. Overall the customer service was excellent. The rooms were very comfortable and modern, with flat screen televisions and comfortable pillows and mattresses. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're staying in downtown... More

This hotel was beautiful from the time we walked off the elevator from the parking ramp. The artwork and decor was lovely and the rooms were spacious. Our main reason for staying downtown was that we could walk to everything: night clubs and restaurants for our friends birthday. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel and will stay here... More

Weekend trip to Milwaukee was great. I had the pleasure to stay at the Intercontinental Milwaukee for 2 nights. I stayed in a room overlooking the city.

While the occasion to travel to Milwaukee rarely happens, the Giants going against the Packers in this year's playoffs was reason enough for my first trip to this great town.

We were in town for a show at Turner Hall, and picked The Intercontinental after seeing it listed on the Pasbt Theatre's website. We took advantage of the Valet parking service and had our bags brought to the front desk for check-in. Our room was clean, and the bed and pillows were amazing! After calling Lee at the Concierge Desk... More

The hotel is beautiful - Kilowatt restaurant is very good for breakfast. Toiletries were not replenished in our room one night - and when we ordered room service, the bill was outrageous. Not to mention we were told we got the cook mad because I ordered from the menu that was outdated but still in our room. That has happened... More

A very nice young woman named Catherine served me drinks both nights I stayed here. She arranged for one of her friends to come and educate me on the many scotches they have on their menu. She was very sweet, and made my stay in an unknown city much more enjoyable.

Our stay here was a very pleasant surprise, going beyond just comfort and services to adding a lot of style. The rooms, beds, and pillows are exceptionally comfortable. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The use of lighter trendy colors, unique woods, carpet colors, and lighting throughout the hotel make this property feel much different from comparable hotels. Rather... More
