Due to the great location I've always stayed here in the past, however, on my recent trips the rooms are in desperate need of repair and updates. Last spring when we stayed the pull out sofa bed was blood stained and extremely uncomfortable and we asked for a roll away that was also in bad shape. On that occasion the... More

We stayed in 708 and it was a very nice room with a great view of the city. Need was very comfortable. Our room also has a full fridge with two burner stove top. Breakfast had a large variety of food. Inside parking was easy to use and nice. We went for a walk on the Riverwalk in the morning... More

This Residence Inn has a lot to like, but there were also a lot of little issues that added up over my eleven night stay. It's worth mentioning that the place is transitioning to new owners, so what changes the next year will bring remain to be seen. To start with the positives, the hotel could hardly be better located.... More

Beautiful old classic building, all the staff I encountered were great and friendly. Parking was a bit of a pain but this is an old building so there is no parking in the same building. Only stayed 1 night and everything was good, just the rooms are tired and in desperate need of a makeover. I felt like I was... More

This was a great place to stay for my quick trip in Milwaukee. The breakfast was good as well—lots of variety. On one morning, they had biscuits and gravy. My only complaint as that there was no cream or half and half for the coffee—only the fake creamer type of stuff that makes your coffee taste saccharine. Also, there were... More

Very friendly and helpful front desk. Helped with taxis,transfers and tourist tips. Rooms are very large buit awkward because it is in a building that was formerly a department store. My room had double height windows overlooking the river. But the windows were not double glazed and nighttime truck noises were loud.

Had an excellent stay at the Residence Inn Milwaukee right in the heart of downtown. The suites are big and comfortable. The bathroom is a little out dated, but was still in nice condition and clean. The river side views are outstanding, and on a clear day/night, you can see Lake Michigan. Parking is underground and very secure, which I... More

Right in the heart of downtown, ON the river. I'd say it's about average with most hotels in the $150ish range. I've had one decent room, and one awesome room. The 6th floor room I was in had probably a 15 foot ceiling! It made the room feel huge! Parking is a pain, and expensive - $17/day on top of... More

Stayed here for a wedding weekend. We got to the hotel around 11am and thought we were going to have to leave our luggage and walk around before a room was ready but they had our room ready to go so we were able to relax after traveling. The room itself was gigantic! Nice size kitchen, beautiful floor to ceiling... More

We were on a weekend get away and wanted to be downtown. The location of the hotel is it's best feature. It is on the river, and if you're lucky you may get a view-we did not. The parking is a bit of a pain on the one way streets below the hotel, but we didn't use it once we... More
