The restaurant has the best hotel food I've experienced in a long time. The staff was excellent in ensuring that any issue is resolved immediately. It's not the fanciest hotel I've ever stayed in, but very comfortable.

I would heartedly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling. It is in a great spot. A few miles south is downtown, easily accessible, and a few miles north is one of the neatest malls/shopping districts my wife and I have visited in a while. The Hilton has always been one of our favorites and the one in Milwaukee on the... More

I feel that I must write to congratulate the staff of the Hilton Milwaukee River for their splendid customer care during our recent stay (23.10.13). Having come from the UK on business, and in the middle of a busy US tour, we very highly appreciated the care which we received. On arrival, we were invited to share entrees in the... More

Right down the street from the Bayshore Mall complex which has EVERYTHING you can find in downtown Milwaukee.

Rooms are Clean and comfortable, but bathrooms could use some updating. Great breakfast and friendly staff. We enjoy the pumpkin decorating contest every October! The Minyans got our vote. We have tried all the hotels close to Whitefish Bay and Hilton wins hands down.

We spent two nights in this hotel. Incredibly clean and quiet. It is about 40 years old and shows some age, but all of that can be overlooked by the fantastic customer service.

The quality of the rooms were that of a Red Roof Inn not a Hilton. If it wasn't for the area being sold out because of the Lacrosse Tournament we were in town for, we would have left to stay somewhere else. The first room was dirty, the carpet was stained everywhere and there were holes/tears in the carpet and... More
