My wife and I booked a room for a Friday on a particularly busy weekend; due to German Fest, Brewfest, some sort of convention, and Brewers games, all of the hotels in the city were sold out. When we checked in, we told them we had been trying to get a second night in the city and were finding it... More

We stayed here for a night en route to O' Hare and it's basically faded charm. It's quite a grand hotel but our room was pretty small and dated. As we booked on the day though we only paid $100 so I suppose we can't complain really.

Love this hotel ! This building has been updated with superb decor that stays true to the feel of this historic structure while keeping in place original fixtures as much as possible. The knobs and doors of our bathroom and closet were likely from somewhere in the original building. Molding, staircases, chandeliers, marble floors - gorgeous! The fabulous ambience is... More

Business took me into downtown Milwaukee this week. From July 15 thru the July I stayed at the Hilton downtown. I staff was very friendly at check-in and just as nice during the check out process. Each time I ran into a staff member in the hallway or elevator they asked if everything was ok and did I need anything?... More

The personal attention received at front entrance to check-in and throughout our stay was incredible. The rooms are very nicely detailed and updated and Clean! Even the house keeping staff greet you and consistently ask if there is anything they can do for you. The facilities/amenities for business & pleasure offer everything imaginable.

I was anticipating a standard ol' Hilton; when I arrived for the TOPS convention, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The lobby and furnishings, elevators and fixtures such as the mail chutes, were all quaint but in top condition. The lobby was spacious and had plenty of areas for quiet visits or more boisterous games. The fitness center and on-site... More

This hotel is a great combination of charm, luxury, convenience and affordability. The parking is a little pricey for non-valet ($24 per night) but at least the garage is attached the hotel on the 2nd floor. It is also much nicer than most dog-friendly hotels and even has a grassy area to take them out.

An old structure that has been nicely updated. Requested and got a room on an upper floor with a view of Lake Michigan. Very nice. Self park available next door with a covered walkway to the Hotel. Staff was on it and very helpful. Bell service was great. Spent an extra 10 minutes at the front door when the hop... More
