We got this hotel for a great rate and had an awesome stay. Our room was large and the beds were super comfortable. The bathroom was small though. The only major complaint was the lack of hairdryer in the room. I haven't stayed at a hotel without a hair dryer in 15+ years. I assumed it was a standard feature.... More

Booked this hotel for one evening due to a recent business trip. Although the hotels architecture is quite impressive the rooms themselves are quite average. The room was clean, quiet & comfortable. Although the bathroom was small & you could not open the door all the way due to the shower curtain rod. The stay was comfortable but not exceptional... More

The Hotel is beautiful, conveniently located, historic and the staff is first rate! As a frequent Hilton traveler I expect all of this to be above par. Unfortunately the mattress was so bad I could not sleep, specifically it was old and sagged in the middle offering no support. Yes I am a big guy but this mattress sagged 4... More

This Hotel is in the Downtown area with easy access to everything. Transportation is convenient if you do not want to drive yourself The Hilton has been able to keep the look of the 20's era in many areas such as the Lobby & Elevators but still maintain the comfy beds in the rooms and the updated looks. Wonderful café... More

Recently stayed here for a business meeting in July. Grand old hotel that maintained its dignity over the years.the staff was very accommodating and I look forward to my next stay. It was central to many activities that were planned for us.

We stayed at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center while visiting family and going to Summerfest. Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel. It is an older building, and doesn't look like and inviting hotel from the outside, but once you get settled, you will feel as though you are in a brand new hotel. The lobby is huge, with... More

We stayed at the Hilton Milwaukee Center during Irish Fest, and was very pleased with everything. Our room was in the wing that had been remodeled recently, very comfortable and quiet. The hotel is on the bus route for transportation to and from Henry Maier Park, which was very convenient. Miller Pub is at the hotel and it was nice... More

This is a beautiful old hotel in the heart of Milwaukee. The staff is friendly and helpful, the room was clean (the bathroom was very small, however, as is common in older hotels) and we very much enjoyed the bar and restaurant attached to the hotel. The café was also good as we had breakfast there. I would certainly go... More

Have stayed here a couple times a year for a few years on my own and with family and friends. We stayed this past weekend for Irish Fest and this was our first serious disappointment. I left Room 1816 at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday and did not return until 10 p.m. When I returned, the room had not been made... More
