I can't say enough about the stay at the Plaza. Everyone was wonderful. This place isn't the Ritz, but for a fraction of the cost, I'd rather be here than the Ritz...and the Ritz doesn't have a kitchen. I wouldn't stay anyplace else in Milwaukee.

The location is fantastic. If you like to walk, you can get to 2 entirely different areas on foot in a little while, filled with great places to eat and things to do. I felt safe walking around these areas all but one evening with a creepy panhandler who started to follow me. The cafe in the hotel is good,... More

This is a cute hotel with a great price. The café serves fast and delicious food. The building is older and the rooms are not huge. However, it is all well maintained and has been updated. This is my second long stay and I would stay again.

Just a wonderful, unique place to stay...our king deluxe room was very recently renovated and came with small kitchen, brand new appliances (including gas stove!). We appreciate the old details kept in the room, and the building is amazing still. A couple things to note: dogs are an additional cost so you may want to ask, parking is additional $10/night...

I have to admit when I arrived to the Plaza I did not know what to think. This is an old hotel. But the staff was very welcoming, and the room, which uses a key to pen the lock, was comfortable, and large. The bed was perfect for me and the wifi worked well. You really cannot ask for more... More

My son and I travel to Milwaukee to see the Bucks play the Bulls. Previously we have stayed closer to the Bradley Center for the game. The restaurants are typical German and ok if beer and brats are what you are after. But the location of this hotel offered more unique restaurants within a walk of the Hotel. Also their... More

I was traveling for business in the area and this was the perfect place to stay in the area. Room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The heat was a bit difficult to adjust on the radiators but having the old radiators was kind of neat!

The hotel is very old. We had problems with the lock on our door and the room while clean, still was in need of repair. The threshold was unfinished, unpainted, and old. The windows were painted shut. There is a difference from being old and being quaint. There was no electrical outlet in the bathroom. Had to dry my hair... More

Not worth it! The rooms are small, old and the walls are paper thin. The service wasn't great and for the price, I think there are better options. Location is a good,centrally located. Still, not worth it overall - wish we had stayed somewhere else!

We are in Milwaukee a couple times a year and this was our first time at The Plaza Hotel. It has a great location, friendly staff, the room was clean and had a kitchen, the only issue was no air in the room - but we will be back!
