I just stayed at the Hilton Milwaukee for a large business conference. Because of my Hilton Honors status I believe I was upgraded to a renovated king room with a large bathroom. The room was great, but some of my colleagues were frustrated because their smaller rooms had tiny bathrooms. The Hilton Honors lounge was fabulous. Great printer set up... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel in the center of the city. Great location, across the street from the convention center where I had meetings, and walking distance to lots of great restaurants and shopping downtown. The hotel is older, but they've maintained it very well and the service was really good. I'd stay there again.

We stayed here kind of by accident because we booked through Hotwire. It ended up being great experience. The hotel has old world charm in the lobby and common areas but our room was modern and beautiful. We had a corner king with a big bathroom and flat screen which was very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. It also... More

The hotel is in a historic building built in 1927, so it has a very old/antique feel to the whole thing. Whenever I was in the lobbies, hallways or elevators it felt like I was in the real life version of the Tower of Terror ride at Disney. There are 6 elevators and the 13th floor button didn’t exist on... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night while attending a Brewers game. The hotel was clean. The front desk stay were friendly and very helpful with directions.

The Hilton is one of Milwaukee's oldest hotels, and for those of us from the city, one of the most beloved city landmarks. The once beautiful and charming downtown "City Center" has, apparently, been left to slowly decay. I have stayed here once before, last year. I stayed in a king suite near the top of the hotel. My impression... More

This is a very nice hotel - great location too. Nice room w/comfy bed, new TV, and big bath towels. Shower/bath/toilet area is separate from sink, roomy counter and big closet - very convenient. Parking on the spendy side, but added to the great rate we booked through Hotwire, we still had an overall great rate for such a nice... More
