4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We booked several rooms here for a few nights for a family wedding. The rooms are all suites -- either studio or full one-bedroom (separate bedroom) suites with kitchenettes. The space was great; even the studio suite was big enough for six people to congregate in comfortably. The amenities and room appointments were what you would expect for a Marriott... More

Just amazing. We got there early to get to Germanfest fast, the front desk offered to hold our luggage and move it up to our room. They gave us 5 complimentary Germanfest tickets. When we got back it was around 12:30 a.m. and we got our first look at the room. It was awesome! It was pretty nicely sized and... More

Nice hotel, comfortable, clean, good breakfast buffet that is included. Right on River in Downtown - walking distance to restaurants and shops. Great access to Milwaukee's Riverwalk area. Residence Inn and Marriott always dependable.

This was a great choice to stay downtown in Milwaukee. We visited friends and went to Summer Fest, it cost $450.00 CAD for one night, thats $353 USD. It is a super cool building and you can see that it use to be a department store (Gimbels). Our room was modern and huge, the bathroom was spacious and we just... More

Went last night to see the Avett Brothers and spent the evening at summerfest and stayed the night. I stayed there because it was walking distance to the event and came with breakfast. It was a nice sized room, clean, organized and well run. So why not 5 stars? Well, it's not a 5 star hotel, it's older (not in... More

We stayed in a very large 2-bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms. Very clean and comfortable, nice size kitchenette and full-size fridge. Underground parking and a mere 20 minute walk to Summerfest. Also very close to many restaurants and other nice visiting places.

We stayed here one night on June 25th, after attending a concert at summerfest. The concert was within walking distance, and easy to find. The room was nice and clean. we visited Mo's Irish pub which is right by the hotel, very convenient. The only thing I disliked was the parking for the hotel was across the street, it was... More

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend in early June to attend a wedding. The hotel is in an old Gimbel's / Marshal Fields department store remodeled into a hotel, but still has lots of the charm and unique architectural features of the original building. Our room was very generously sized and had a small kitchenette, all... More

I agree with another reviewer that says this is a hidden gem in Downtown Milwaukee. We had an excellent stay here and would come back again. The staff was super friendly upon arrival. They let us check in early and we got an upgraded room that had great views of both the river and Lake Michigan. The 2 bedroom suite... More

We had a corner suite with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was one of our favorite hotels of the 7 we stayed in on our road trip. The staff was friendly, the location was good and the breakfast was filling. Parking was easy.
