Hotel is beautiful with nice restaurants/bars & location is great. However, our bathroom was horrible! No exhaust fan, tiles in bathtub were cracked down the middle & just "repaired" with white caulk. Also had some drywall in the bathroom that was smashed in & appeared to be growing mold.It was dirty behind the faucet too. When I stay somewhere, I... More

I was disappointed to find that my room (let alone all rooms) did not come with a microwave. At least my room came with a mini-refrig but I did learn that only the rooms in the west wing have them. I only stayed at this hotel for the skywalk to the Wisconsin Center.

I stayed here with friends as we were in town for a show at the Bradley Center. Parking was very convenient and not very expensive although I would have gladly paid more for valet. Check-in was a breeze and the room was very clean & quiet. The sink area is separate from the shower which made getting ready in the... More

AlwaysOnTehGoGo_1206, Thank you for the kind review and comments. It is great to know that we were able to meet your desired price point while providing a comfortable and pleasant service oriented stay. The bathroom design you are referring to is known as a “vanity bath” so be sure to request one the next time you stay with us. Regards, More

I visited Milwaukee with a Harley Owners Group for a weekend getaway. We stayed at this Hilton upon recommendation from our tour director. We had a very good time while there. Milwaukee was very interesting as well as the tour of the Harley Davidson Power Train Plant and the Museum. At the end of each day it was nice to... More

Very pleased with this hotel. It's an older building but they've updated the room amenities nicely. Free wifi in the lobby and good wifi in the rooms as well (although a charge unless you are a gold or diamond member). There are three restaurants in or attached and there's also a Starbucks next to the lower lobby. One of the... More

For a Four Star hotel, I expected more. The room was small, the bathroom was small and outdated. The personnel were pleasant and helpful. The hotel is conveniently attached to the Wisconsin Center--it's a hike inside--quicker going out the front door and crossing the street. The Miller Time Pub was nice for a quick meal-beware the cost of your beer--in... More

Had the pleasure of staying at this property for the wedding of a friends of ours daughter. We booked a King superior room which was very comfortable.

A beautiful hotel with quiet rooms and comfortable beds. I believe this hotel was once the historic Schroeder hotel built in the neoclassic style. This hotel has a skywalk to the convention center. It is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. I also liked that there was a Starbucks located inside the hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating.... More

The Milwaukee City Center Hilton has a grand history, but it is starting to fade in terms of furnishings and accomodations. This property does not live up to the Hilton flagship brand. There is no concierge floor and the concierge lounge is small and only accessible to Hilton's top loyalty members. The guestrooms are spartan by Hilton standards, and what... More
