4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

I like that you can park in the garage and it is secured but as far as the room, for what you spend I would have expected nicer furniture instead of worn and torn. Had the breakfast buffett they kept running out of stuff and had to keep asking to get it refilled. Food, plasticwear and napkins It was in... More

We stayed at this Residence Inn while in town for a Brewers Game. It was a nice hotel with secure garage parking. We were able to catch a shuttle to the game across the street from the hotel at a Irish Pub. Breakfast was quite good. Would stay here again.

This is a great location along the downtown Riverwalk, and a 12 minute walk from the dining options in the Historic Third Ward. We stayed here mid-week and enjoyed the dinner reception offered Mon through Thursday nights in space with large windows overlooking the canal. (While information about this is available in the rooms, the hours are not posted, so... More

Fabulous breakfast! Very great service at buffet; they had waffles and oatmeal with chocolate, walnuts, whipped cream, and butterscotch. Additionally the river looking rooms had huge windows with a great view. You can add parking on for an additional fee, very secure garage.
