We stayed at the Hilton for five nights. Our corner room on the 18h floor gave us a fabulous view of the lake. Beds were comfortable but the down comforters, as usual in Hilton properties, were stiflingly hot. One needed the thermostat set to 68 to sleep comfortably. Location was within walking distance to many attractions. Yes, there were homeless... More

Great hotel in a convenient location downtown! Room was very spacious and felt updated and clean; however, I think the hotel can use some better signage as to which way the rooms are once you get to your floor. Ordered room service twice and was very impressed with breakfast but not with dinner (pasta was flavorless and cheesecake was so... More

Stayed here over July 4th weekend. Easy to get to Summerfest grounds. Hotel was an old bank; had lots of character. Tim, who helped us with our luggage, heard we were celebrating a birthday. When we returned to our room after the concert there was a bucket of Miller beverages, a basket of snacks, and a birthday card. Way to... More

This hotel was phinominally clean. Bed was amazing and the staff was beyond friendly and helpful. Was there for 8 days for work and honestly can say that none of our staff, about 45 of us, had a complaint about our rooms (other than some not having refrigerators) The downtown area it's located at is a little bit sketchy, as...

This hotel is in a great location if you happen to be arriving by AMTRAK and want something you can easily walk to. It is one of the older "grand dame" type properties, and there are good and bad elements associated with that distinction! The good: Rooms are of a very nice, comfortable size -- much larger than more contemporary... More

Second time staying at the City Center Hilton. We were in town for the annual German Fest. The hotel was very clean, staff pleasant, and entire visit very enjoyable. I would stay again. The only negative might be the morning breakfast buffet in the Cafe did not have enough variety for the price and what i would expect at a... More

My girlfriend and I stayed with two other couples for the weekend. Very nice hotel with comfortable beds and nice amenities. Walking distance to pretty much everything you would look to do in Milwaukee. The hotel has lots to do inside of it as well with the Starbucks, chop house, miller time pub, and hotel bar. Dean in the miller... More

I arrived to begin a week-long conference at 6 in the morning, after a 20 hour trip of delays and disasters. The front desk greeted me with care and understanding and got me settled right away. It felt wonderful. The room was in the older part of the hotel, built in twenties, and was roomy and charming. After my long-needed... More

The food was very good. Long walks to get where you are to be. Didn't care for the parking on the street as you couldn't park after 3:00 pm. No parking in front of a restaurant if you were there after 3:00.
