I only got to stay a night at the Hilton, but I wish it could have been longer. This hotel is beautiful--the lobby is comfortable and glamorous, the rooms modern and immaculate. My room was on the 19th floor with an east-facing window overlooking the lake and skyline. The bed was awesome; I slept like a baby. I definitely hope... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

except the removal of the waterpark, there's not many recognizable changes since the last time we stayed here. The parking is still overpriced (without bellhop or valet) with a much cheaper option across the street. Same great concierge and to go maps but no address included so we can input it in the GPS and go. Room service was decent.... More

Great Location in the Center or Milwaukee and attached to the Convention Center. Construction out front was inconvenient. Elevators were very slow. Service was Excellent! Rooms are very average. I expected better from a Downtown Hilton as my experience with Hilton nationwide, has been Excellent.

Beautiful hotel, very historic yet modern updates like the bar area on the 2nd floor. The restaurant and bar area downstairs are very nice and great food. We stopped in at midnight for a drink at the sports bar on the lower level, it was great. The room was very nice and the view was great. The only problem I... More

This Hilton exudes its original opulence with tastefully done updates. Rooms are cozy, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The downtown location is perfect for the convention center, arenas, Marquette University and attractions such as the Harley-Davidson Museum, Summerfest, and the Potowatomi Casino.

My wife and I spent Memorial Day weekend at this hotel when we were in town attending a wedding. The hotel is beautiful with classic architecture. Our room on the twenty-fourth floor afforded a great view of the city and Lake Michigan. As Hilton Honors members we enjoyed free WiFi. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet. The... More

Stayed for my nephew's wedding, reception held in the ballroom. This is the place to have a wedding in Milwaukee! Rooms, service, food, beverages and the staff insured a wonderful weekend for all and they made the weekend special.

Hello Frank R, It is great to know that you had such a positive experience with us! We typically have a few weddings a weekend with multiple blocks as well. It results in a very busy hotel but our staff enjoys the excitement and challenge. So glad you had a wonderful weekend with us. Hopefully we will see you again!... More

We decided to spend a holiday weekend in Milwaukee for a change of pace.Can't beat being central to the downtown area and within walking distance of the Public Market. Our room was very quiet and clean. It took us a while to figure out where the closet was. It looked like a connecting door to another room, but, lo and... More

An older well-kept hotel right in the convention district. Our room was lovely and well-appointed, the bathroom fixtures older, but serviceable (the toilet flushes really loudly, for example, but everything works just fine). We had a HUGE walk-in closet complete with a safe and extras of bedclothes and such. The walls are kind of thin; we could hear the next-door... More
