I was in Milwaukee to see a concert at the Riverside Theater, which was only 1/2 block away. My room and the staff were outstanding, my room was perfect in every way. I have absolutely no complaints at all. I will be adding these types of hotels in my preference of places to choose from now on. It would be... More

We had a king suite room. The room was very clean. Bed was comfortable. Strange high ceilings (at least 14'). Great view looking out over the frozen river. Room was quiet. Good front desk service. Will definitely come back (when the weather is warmer). We saw a show at the Riverside. You can't really get any closer to the Riverside... More

This all-suites hotel is located on the downtown Riverwalk which is a pleasant place to be and very convenient for walking to the shops/restaurants in the third ward, museums and various theaters. The room was VERY large and comfortable. There is a full kitchen, so if you were staying in Milw. for several days this would offer a way to... More

My family stayed here on March 8th, 2014. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom suite. It was very spacious and clean and had a great view. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the free breakfast was very good. Our only issue was that the shower in our room didn't work, but since we had a two bathroom... More

I haven't seen too many Residence in downtown areas. This one was pretty cool. It had the feel of a full service in some ways (level of service, food in lobby, quality of building and rooms), but with a great "residence" price. It is right downtown near a lot of things and great for folks working downtown. I would happily... More

We had an amazing king room with an amazing view over the river. We can't wait to come back to Milwaukee! The room was clean with a giant window floor to ceiling. Good breakfast as well. We are sad to have missed the happy hour though. Perfect location. We were able to walk everywhere, even with temperatures below zero. We... More

Great downtown location in the renovated Gimbels Building. It's on the Riverwalk so it's an easy walk to the 3rd Ward market, a moderate walk to the Art Museum. The suites are large with kitchen. Free breakfast was complete and more than adequate. I'd stay again. The under-hotel parking is the same price as the city parking lots but you... More

Very nice rooms. Bed was soft for our liking. Great location and views. Friendly staff and the parking on site is worth the $17! We had a corner room. Lots of space huge Windows nice bathroom. Breakfast in the morning was very good. Definitely better than the average hotel.

Everything was perfect. Arrived in Milwaukee around 10:00 am. We were checking out a event at the conference center so I was hoping just to park and check in later, but they let us check in right away. Room was huge and clean. The free breakfast was just fine. Everything in the area is basicalli connected to a skywalk.

Next to the river within walking distance to fine dining. Lot's of shopping without going outside! The suite was comfortable and well maintained. The underground parking was especially nice on the very cold weekend. Plenty of choices on the breakfast buffet, great coffee and wait staff. Great value!
