I was there for a coaching clinic at Marquette University. I had a great dinner & the hotel was quiet & comforting. I was on the 1st floor & there seemed to be bugs flying around the room. Im not sure if thats because of the river or not. Im a Gold member & love Hilton. I was displeased though... More

Thank you for your comments here on Trip Advisor! Very appreciated! While I am glad to read that your stay was highlighted by our fantastic restaurant, The Anchorage, and by our quaint location accented with a helpful staff, I am embarrassed about the linen conditions you experienced! Your point is quite valid.....this is not up to Hilton standards, nor mine.... More

I was pleased with my stay at the Hilton Milwaukee River. The hotel is smaller and quieter than a lot of "big deal" Hilton properties, but that was just fine with me. Located along the scenic Milwaukee River in a suburban neighborhood, this hotel offers a nice escape from the city, but is just a quick drive from downtown especially... More

Great food and great service in Glendale, just north of downtown. Kelly our server was great, and Sandy the hostess was super attentive to our group which had 1 energetic 2 year old. We will come back to this "hidden" jewel for many more visits!

The biggest plus here is the staff who are very efficient and friendly. The hotel is well located just off the interstate. The decor is quite dated but the beds are super comfortable. I would stay here again for sure!

Good night sleep before Brewer half marathon. I would stay at this hotel anytime I visit the Milwaukee area, service friendliness is top notch. Check in was quick, there was a college soccer team in the hotel and if I would not have seen them at check in I would have never known. Service was remarkable.

Glad to read that our service levels at the Hilton Milwaukee River made for a comfortable night's rest before your Brewer Marathon! (I had friends that ran in that event as well.....maybe they should have stayed over here too, as they only did so-so at Miller Park!!) In all areas of our facility, I am quite proud of our staff...

Quiet hotel located just off the interstate with a lovely river flowing behind it. Decor in the lobby and rooms feels a bit dated (seriously, who paints hallways orange?) but the rooms are clean & comfortable. Our room rate included breakfast coupons and 2 for 1 drink coupons. Breakfast is a full buffet with a great many choices including several... More

I originally hesitated booking this room based on the negative reviews. Glad I didn't listen to them. We were there for one night only. We did not try the pool or restaurant. We stayed on points and had no problem getting a reservation a couple of days prior to our arrival. The room was rather large...larger than most. Beds appeared... More
