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.

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

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...

Had a great stay with very friendly service, especially in the Chophouse. The front desk man was very courteous. The lobby was decorated beautifully and classy for the holidays. The food in the chophouse was moderately priced and definitely tasty and the wine list, although light on the offerings, was nicely appointed.

We have a big dog who loves to travel with us. It is becoming more difficult to find hotels that will accomodate larger dogs. This place was awesome. Our room was huge.

This beautiful old hotel has been given a dramatic and stunning facelift. Way beyond our expectations. It is flat out gorgeous inside. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Our room on the 17th floor was large, the bed was terrific and the bathroom had newly appointed fixtures and great towels. All three of the restaurants were awesome. The Milwaukee... More
