If you enjoy beautiful architecture from the past, this is a place with a lobby where you may simply sit and enjoy the view. Better yet, walk through the hallways of the entry and lobby levels and be taken back to another era. If you have the opportunity, also visit the executive club at the lobby level where each detail... More

This hotel is the benchmark for five star quality and service. The hotel a beautiful, imposing Art Deco style building, an eye catching landmark on the urban landscape. The interior reception area is stunning with a sweeping staircase to the reception desk, all spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and efficient. When I asked about the history of the hotel...

Had a great time with family. The room was very comfortable and huge. You could lose yourself in the big bed. Grandchild was there to go to a concert. They had a shuttle to the casino which was my reason for visiting Milwaukee. We all had fun doing what we came for. The restaurant had a menu to satisfy every... More

This hotel has a great downtown location. We visited for a NBA game. It was a few blocks from Bradley Center and almost the entire walk was covered. We used a skywalk from the hotel all the way to the Hyatt which is across from Bradley Center. It was 20 degrees so this was a great plus. Food and drinks... More

On the plus side. -- The staff is great. Well trained, very helpful, very nice. -- The lobby bar is a great space. During the day, not too busy, power in some of the tables. Free WIFI in the lobby area. -- Interesting construction. Not a new building, so you get the period feel. -- Concierge lounge has a friendly... More

This is our second year staying here and I was just as impressed as last year. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone attending an event at the Wisconsin Center. We were here for my daughter's dance competition and the skywalk was so convenient. We were able to walk back and forth easily and without worry about kids crossing the... More

Great hotel, with a great location. We were visiting town for a concert at The Riverside Theater. It was in walking distance from the hotel. Great bar located in the hotel, free breakfast (which was actually good breakfast) and free parking were some of the added bonuses.

The Hilton Milwaukee City Center is Ias the name implies) in the "center" of downtown. Very good location with an easy walk to Marquette University and a few blocks to the Riverfront area (and a bit further to Lake Michigan). Hotel room was spotless, and bed very comfortable (only slight issue were the pillows---too "plump" and heavy, but I was... More

The fitness room is on the small side, but has some good equipment and is clean. The building is an interesting old one -... More
