We have stayed at this hotel a number of times. We love the fact that they have TWO bedroom suites. We like to plan couples weekends and each two bedroom suite allows each couple to have their own private bathroom and bedroom. The staff has always been helpful and rooms are always clean.

Spontaneous road trip led us to Milwaukee for a Sat night Brewers game. Being a Marriott gold member, I searched Marriott site for available hotels and found the Residence Inn. I'm so glad I did! The staff is so friendly, and we were walking distance to nightlife after the game, with Mo's Irish Pub right across the street and other... More

HUGE rooms with incredibly high ceilings and a gorgeous view! Awesome gym for a hotel, free wifi, free hot breakfast, and helpful front desk staff (I believe it was Amber who helped us and she was awesome). We went to the Brewer's game (stadium is a bit far from downtown), but there are tons of Irish pubs around that give... More

The staff is very friendly. The rooms have very tall ceilings and are outfitted quite nicely. The hotel location is great for walking the city. It is built in an old building and they have very interesting documentation about the history

It had been a couple of years since we have stayed at the Residence Inn and we were very happy to be back for Irish Fest weekend. The hotel is perfectly located for the fest grounds as well as downtown Milwaukee. We were able to either take the bus right along Wisconsin Ave to/from the fest grounds and also able... More

Beautiful property, very clean, huge spacious rooms, very welcoming, and the location was perfect. Friendly staff and hard working. The complimentary hot breakfast was amazing with the countless options available! I will be back next time I am in town. Great visit!

Although expensive, it is in the middle of everything you want to see downtown Milwaukee. The 3rd Ward is four blocks away; Mo’s Place for Steaks, the many other restaurants and Summer Fest outdoor stages are within a mile. The rooms have 20 ft. ceilings and the breakfast, dinner & happy hour (three days) are above average.

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.
