My husband and I are from Chicago, and had never been to Milwaukee before, so on a random day off we decided to get a room at this historic Hilton property and explore some of the area. We were greeted by a wonderful Front Desk associate who delivered a perfect e-checkin, and with my Diamond Hilton Honors status I was... More

Stayed at this lovely hotel for a short business trip and was pleasantly surprised. Room on the 7th floor corner was very large and well appointed. Front desk staff was friendly. First time for using the check in feature via the app and it worked well. Gym was nice and larger than expected. I had read that the elevators were... More

I really like this hotel and typically stay here while in Milwaukee. I have always had a great time and stay. It is convenient and there are always cabs immediately available. The service is very friendly and the lounges and restaurant are both very good as well.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this old well renovated hotel within the Hilton Group. It has great rooms, well designed and comfortable bed. The hotel is just busy enough for a great hotel downtown. I preferred this Hilton to the Hilton Downtown in New York City which had small rooms, no coffee or tea facilities and was extremely busy...

Spent 3 nights here on a business trip. While it's an older building, the rooms and common areas were both well maintained and didn't have that "old" feeling. Check in was efficient and pleasant. Room was large and laid out well, although the bathroom was a little small and crowded. Bed was a little soft, and the pillows were very... More

We just spent five nights at the Hilton Milwaukee for a fencing competition at the attached convention center, and came away convinced this was the best hotel experience we've had in more than two years of traveling around the country for tournaments. The service, from the lobby staff to housekeeping to the restaurants in the hotel, was consistently good. The... More

This hotel is beautiful with lots of architectural beauty. The hotel is located within walking distance of multiple attractions and amazing food options! The staff are energetic and appear to be truly happy with their work.

I was very impressed with the decor of this hotel. They were also very accommodating of me as a nursing and working mother by providing me a fridge to store the milk in for free. This was wonderful. The bed and pillows were also so comfortable and I slept great! I would definitely stay here again if I go back!

good downtown location, lovely lobby and nice rooms. Downside are the elevators, which are old and slow. We were in town for a fencing event in the convention center, which is conveniently attached to the hotel, but when there is another event in the hotel, getting up and down with bags can be tricky. We waited for multiple elevators to... More
