The location was convenient to downtown and some good sports bars/restaurants but the facility needs work. One elevator was off line and the general housekeeping was not up to snuff. The staff was helpful. We were also a bit intimidated by the neighborhood on our late night walk back from the arena area.

Atrick6, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about your most recent stay. You are correct that one of our elevators was offline as we completely renovate the elevator. This work is quite extensive and takes 11 weeks per elevator, but we are proud to offer 3 other elevators for use during this time. I am concerned about... More

The desk staff was quick, courteous, and gave useful advice. The room was clean and had plenty of useful work space. The complimentary breakfast lasted a full four hours and included welcome variety and quality.

This hotel is right in the middle of downtown. The property is very clean and their breakfast is excellent. They have a decent indoor pool and a fitness center. The front desk were always helpful and very accommodating. They have coffee, hot chocolate, tea and cookies available 24/7 :-) I stayed there for 4 nights for a conference at Marquette... More

The room was nicely made up each day, but it was noisy at night and the elevators were slow. Staff was friendly, and complementary newspapers were appreciated. Location was convenient walking distance to the Wisconsin Center and restaurants.

Deane R, I am glad that you found our location convenient and enjoyed the services that we provided. I am happy to inform you that after our elevator renovations are complete in January, that the elevators will move much more quickly and will not provide the same concerns you experienced during your recent visit. Please come back and visit us... More

I stayed here one night last weekend and was very happy with the time there, although brief (in late, out early next morning). Staff was friendly, room was clean and spacious, and the location is very convenient to downtown restaurants and amenities.

I loved staying at the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are great and clean. I was only dissatisfied with the breakfast (wanting plain natural fat yoghurt instead of low fat + flavored and real eggs versus the scrambled eggs offered)

Dina S, Thank you for your feedback and recommendations. While I am disappointed to report that we cannot provide real scrambled eggs in breakfast as it is against Hampton brand standards, I will look into other yogurt options that we can provide to our guests. We hope to see you again during your next trip to Milwaukee! Sincerely, Misty Kingsley... More

Apart from street noise (garbage collection, construction), this hotel is an excellent deal -- spacious rooms, comfortable beds and pillows, free WiFi, adequate complimentary breakfast, coffee and ice water always available in the lobby, friendly and helpful staff, excellent location. Room would benefit from a small microwave oven and a better quality coffee maker -- but otherwise just fine. I... More

We stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Milwaukee Downtown on 10/24/2014. We used their valet service for our NEW truck since their website indicated it was our only option. When we called for our truck, the truck-bed had a huge dent in the side along with yellow paint scraped down the entire side. It was pretty obvious that the... More

ShareMyExperience14, I am very disappointed to read your review of our hotel. Not only have we offered our appologies for the damage caused by our contracted valet service, but it is my understanding that they offered monetary compensation less than a week from when the incident occurred and that you have accepted their offer. I understand that the situation as... More

The hotel was very nice, especially for the price. The hotel is up to date and clean. The staff is very friendly. When I booked the room I requested two queen beds; however, we received two full beds. This was not enough room for us, but we made it work. I gave this hotel four stars because everything else was... More

We were given absolutely zero information about the hotel at check in aside from our room key. The hotel is like a maze, with construction going on all over the place. Our room was.. too strange to put into words and to be honest, had I paid about $100 I would have zero complaints, at the $240 I had just... More
