Stayed at the Hilton for a week in February. It's a beautiful hotel. It's clean and the restaurants are good. It's also close to a number of other good places to eat. I will echo another reviewer who said that the heating system in the rooms is very, very loud. I eventually just tuned it off when I went to... More

It was the first time I stayed there and was very pleased with my stay. We were at a gymnastics meet and the close proximity to everything was a big plus. Rooms were very tastefully decorated (something you expect to see at a Hilton). The staff was helpful and polite. Hotel itself was beautiful and inviting. I definitely will stay... More

Very nice, older hotel just a few blocks from Marquette University. Rooms were clean and comfortable, however, everytime the heat kicked on it sounded like an airplane taking off. Not a good nights sleep. Amazingly, our alarm went off at 7 am and the last time the heat kicked in and made the load noise was at 5:30 am...all was... More

The Hilton Milwaukee City Center has been my favorite hotel in Milwaukee for years. Its grand lobby give you the feel of a different time, while the rooms remain traditional but updated. The Miller Time Pub is a great spot for happy hour (especially a late night happy hour) and a prefect spot to meet new people. Stay in a... More

Let us check out late . . Super clean .. Very nice I would stay here again! I got lucky with a great Hotwire rate. It's rated 3.5 stars but to me it was better than many 4 stars. Room was very modern clean and very comfortable. I was very pleased for what I had paid

I was pretty surprised to find out that the hotel didn't have valet. The parking garage was adjacent and I was ale to find a spot close to the entrance but let's face it, I wanted to get out of the car and hand the keys to valet, not search for a spot. The Doubletree has it, so I full... More

Great staff, check in was fast and smooth. No problems with the room, other then a little rust stain on the grab handle in the tub but otherwise very clean. I did partake in the breakfast buffet the next morning in the restaurant and the staff was very courteous and helpful. The buffet was excellent! I would definitely stay here... More

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.
