I have stayed at this hotel several times for my work, my husbands work and for pleasure. The staff completely ignored my preferences on my Diamond list, my room was not clean, I requested refrigerator due to medicinal purposes and did not receive one, the lounge definitely understaffed, ran into numerous people that I knew due to a show at...

We were there to attend a large group event - had a great time, the hotel was the perfect host. I will certainly stay at this location again, and will absolutely consider other Hilton properties in the future.

Every time I had a question or a need, the staff at this location was willing to bend over backward to satisfy my needs. My weekend here was a GREAT experience. The crab cake sliders were an unique dish that I enjoyed tremendously.

Not your typical modern looking Hilton. In an older high rise building. Very classical, and a nice change to the standard cookie cutter Hilton / Marriott / Hyatt. Looks notwithstanding, all the typical niceties you'd expect from Hilton. Sports bar / restaurant connected to Hotel lower lobby, so you can dine without going into the cold if you choose. Otherwise,... More

We were in town for a wedding at the hotel. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the location is great. But what really made our stay special was the outstanding customer service from all of the hotel staff. We were there for five nights so we met a lot of the staff at the front desk, the bell hops...

We arrived last Fri evening for a Volleyball Tournament that was held in the convention center. So easy to get to with walkway between hotel and center. Hotel was Beautiful. BUT we were not able to stay long. In the middle of the night my daughter became very ill. A friend also staying in the hotel mentioned it the Jeremy... More

Beautiful hotel in downtown Milwaukee. We had a 2 double bed room that was in the corner so it seemed a bit larger than other doubles. The staff was friendly and helpful, beds were comfy, the room was clean and spacious, and the towels were thick and fluffy. No microwave or refrigerator. When it came to getting sleep - we... More

Packbrew, Thank you for sharing your experience with us recently at the Hilton Milwaukee. It seems as though we were able to wow you with our amenities and staff, however other conditions of your stay left something to be desired, and I sincerely apologize for the noise issues you incurred while staying with us. Comfortable surroundings, in not only room... More

This hotel has a great location. I stayed here for three nights. The hotel was clean with great rooms. It is central to a lot of different activities. We were at a convention and it was excellent spot for that. Great view from our room.

As one of the city’s largest, (and tallest!) hotels, there is no shortage of excellent views. Thank you for choosing us for your stay last summer,... More

Beautiful older hotel in downtown Milwaukee. Have stayed here twice. Once on older building and once in newer west building. Both are good. Bathrooms in west building are larger and seem more modern. Lobby has a lovely large lounge with a good vibe. Super convenient to stay here if you are attending something at convention center as it is connected... More

We stayed one night here and needed location downtown as we were attending a local sports event at the Bradley Center. We were warmly greeted by all staff members, and asked at Front Desk if we would like a lower or upper floor room. Our room was very comfortable and clean. It is an old building and could use a...
