This hotel is tucked away in downtown Milwaukee, and it's a gem. Beautiful lobby, everyone was so accommodating from the Valet guy to the Registration person, to my waitress, Selena. The cooked-to-order breakfast was also delicious. My room had this high ceiling with floor to ceiling windows, a view of Lake Michigan, and the Calatrava Art Museum (if in Milwaukee,... More

My production crew and I stayed here on one of the coldest days of the year and were warmed by the unique beauty of this gracious hotel. The staff was friendly and perceptive. They granted us extra time to manage our cumbersome equipment, a process that was made more complex by the cold. They recommended a restaurant that was one... More

Stayed here for a family weekend (weekend after Christmas). Hotel was nice...building used to be the old Marshall Fields I believe. Hotel was clean but oh my gosh was it warm. The thermostat turned down did not help. I am not sure what they can even do about this but plan wardrobe accordingly. One complaint is housekeeping did not show... More

Before booking this hotel, check out the shows playing at the next door Riverside Theatre. It'll make all the difference. (Also note right off the bat that this hotel does not have a pool.) We stayed here two nights when a very rowdy band was playing at the Riverside and the hotel crowd was much the same - people throwing... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn for a weekend getaway and were impressed with the location and quality of the rooms. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The hotel even had easy to access HEATED parking under the building, which was nice on a cold winter day. The breakfast buffet was good and had plenty of items for our... More

It was a place wherein you can call it your home, big rooms, nice area , the ambience is so good. I came back twice in the hotel and will come back again if I need to go to Milwaukee. I will not reconsider another hotel...

I have written other reviews for this wonderful hotel, but I do have to chime in again with how much I enjoy it. We had a great suite that was so quiet - but that makes sense in an urban hotel over the Christmas holiday. Not that many people checked in (I think) - but all that were there were... More

The hotel was good. Very big room with almost a wall of window space and high cieling. Free hot breakfast in the morning with lots of choices. Location is great. Right on the Riverwalk and walking distance to a lot of places. Walked to the Milwaukee Art Museum, Third Ward, and down the Riverwalk all very easily.

I recently stayed in Residence Inn for a week for Business. I found it really good, rooms are really spacious and they provide small kitchen within the room. This is also walking distance from most downtown offices and hotels. Had a great Stay!
