1st time staying at Hampton Inn & Suites in Milwaukee after attending Irish Fest for the last 20 years. I must say, I was pretty pleased with my stay. The hotel has recently been renovated, all renovations are not yet complete I'm guessing, because of several missing tiles and poor response of the thermostat controls. The room was very clean,...

I was recently in town for a business event at the nearby Wisconsin Center and stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown two nights. Let me start be saying on the surface nothing was glaringly wrong with my stay, however it was all of the little issues or details that led me to give it 2 stars. The hotels... More

We stayed here for the first time while attending Irish Fest. The location was perfect. The shuttle to the festival grounds stopped right in front of the hotel. Breakfast was good. It was a very nice perk. We were given a free upgrade to a double jacquzzi suite. The room was nice. I believe they may have still been in... More

I normally don't have any complaints about my stays with Hampton Inns, but this one just didn't seem up to par with the other Hampton Inn and Suites that we have used in the past. The hotel is under renovation, and our room was not very appealing. I am not sure if we got the room because the hotel was... More

This is a very updated hotel which provides great comfort in the rooms; however the wireless internet is not of any benefit. The lobby was my only option to use internet along with any cell coverage. This is an older building and it limited cell coverage and wirless signal.

Incredibly helpful and friendly staff- it made breakfasts, having a clean room, and getting directions a snap. Especially loved the comfort of the bed and the ability to walk or bike everywhere in downtown. We enjoyed our stay.

The location was great. The hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming. We arrived 2 hours before check-in and our room was ready for us, which was great. The room was clean and ready for us. The only issue I had with the room was the lighting. Because the window was located in the corner there wasn't much natural light... More

Had the opportunity to stay at this hotel for one night before heading up to Oshkosh... First off, the hotel is under a minor renovation currently, you'll notice it when your walking around the hotel, though there isn't any mention on the Hilton Website of there being a renovation, it's not till you reach the hotel and see the sign...

This hotel is a nightmare. First, the manager and assistant manager are arrogant jerks. They do not listen to your concern, they just talk over you. Comlplete staff seemed to go out of there way to be extremely UNFRIENDLY. The hotel itself is falling apart ( and I stayed in the "remodeled floor"). Very small rooms, noisey airvents, not very...

Michael, I apologize that you car was broken into. I understand how frustrating that is, and I am sorry that it happened while you were staying at our hotel.
