They sold the parking garage so have been able to put a large chunk of change into upgrades over the past year. The MAC is very well situated in the downtown, within easy walking distance of the River Walk, the Lake and the historic districts. The staff is very accommodating. We always enjoy our stays.

My wife and I stayed at the MAC (Milwaukee Athletic Club) for three nights. In the sharply divided ratings provided for this facility, we mostly join those who enjoyed their stays. The main issue with water temperature fluctuation in the shower may be self-inflicted, as it was in my case. I took my 1st shower trying to regulate both the... More

Stayed for summerfest '14 and it was perfect for that. Easy walk, room was huge. Stayed on the 12th floor and the view was very nice. Would not recommend for families with young children as the pools are seperate men's and women's. Also there is a dress code.

Talk about a conveniently located hotel! Smack in the middle of downtown Milwaukee, this hotel is only a 5-10 minute walk from the Milwaukee Art Museum, Riverwalk, and Veterans Park, as well as other local attractions. The lobby and restaurant are classic, clean and welcoming. The hotel staff were also incredibly helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, the good stops there. The... More

The charm of the Pfeister w/out the price tag. We stayed at the MAC and I had no idea what to expect. It was SO lovely...quiet and unique and perfectly located. YES there are features that are outdated but nothing that effects your stay. I felt like I could move in for a week and totally relax. Our room was... More

Location is great. Very close to everything including bars, restaurants and the lake front. Room was spacious and clean but the rooms are tired. Ceiling tile, carpet/flooring and bathrooms should be updated. Parking was awkward due to repair work. Reasonable $15 fee for downtown parking. We would stay again. Friendly staff.

The people at the front desk were pleasant enough. That is the only good thing to say about this extremely poorly maintained, uncomfortable, unattractive, noisy, creepy, outdated, dirty relic of a hotel. No price is cheap enough to justify staying here.

Walked in and was immediately impressed with the well manicured and upscale looking interior. Our room was very spacious along with the bathroom. The beds were clean and comfortable. Our room had a nice view of the city's night life. I did note that the TV seemed awkwardly small for the room and its distance from the beds, but wasn't... More

First I should acknowledge that the MAC is a functioning athletic club, so the lower four floors are indeed nicely laid out and maintained to serve that function. The price of a room is reasonable for a downtown location and it appears that the parking fee of $15 is standard for downtown. And, unlike some reviewers, we found that the... More

Do Not Stay Here! Like the previous review, I could rate it a MINUS, I would. I was recommended this place by a colleague. Not knowing Milwaukee - I didn't question it. I checked in at 4:30pm, only to hear through paper thin walls, people having sex next door. I went and got a restaurant recommendation from the front desk.... More
