Comfortable beds, huge rooms, great staff, and good free meals! Right downtown and near the third ward, a long walk (or short bus ride) away from Brady St and the lakefront. Definitely one of my go-to hotels in Milwaukee. It's also off the small skyway system in Milwaukee, which is helpful in winter.

We chose this hotel for a post holiday family get together. The location was centrally located and within easy walking distance to the Third Ward, Public Market, Riverwalk, Marcus Center, etc. We were upgraded to a one bedroom; the rooms are spacious and clean and we enjoyed two story windows overlooking the river. Secure underground parking. Large and well appointed... More

I stayed at Residence Inn Milwaukee to attend a Green Bay Packers game and I had a great time there. It's an old classical building with spacious and furnished guestroom. There was a king size bed, a proper fridge (not a small one, as NYC branch), a cooktop, a microwave oven, a dishwasher, china, silverware, iron and some sofas. Well... More

The rooms are huge, beautiful ceiling to floor windows! Kitchen, sitting area and comfortble beds and pillows. The location is awesome, you can walk to many great stores, restaurants, bars, theatres. There is a free shuttle a block away if you want to try your luck at the casino! Not to mention the free breakfast, eggs, bisquits and gravy, sausage,... More

Our stay here was nice, but there were a few odd drawbacks. First the good stuff--nice big rooms, thick walls, very nice common areas, great location, nice staff. The bad--the carpet in our room was a little worn and the bathroom shower curtain was very gross. We had actually called to get a new shower curtain because the one in... More

This was a very nice place to stay. HUGE ROOMS!!! I really wasn't expecting such a big room! There was a living room area with a fold out couch and a recliner. There was a big desk and chair as well. There was a full kitchen with an island with chairs. That was a really nice addition to the room.... More

The staff at this hotel was wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice it was clean and comfortable, very quiet! I slept very well, thank you. The breakfast in the morning was very good, and the lady who was taking care of it did an outstanding job.

Right by the Pabst and Riverside....Moe's Steakhouse, Moe's Irish pub. Good, free breakfast. Clean, comfortable rooms. Walkway into mall. I think this is a great Hotel to stay at if you have plans in Milwaukee and need a great place to stay. Right on the river too.
