Loved the unique vibe of the plaza. Rooms were immaculate including a full kitchen. Old retro hotel within walking distance to Brady street. Breakfast was outstanding. We will definitely stay again. Rooms were charming.

The hotel was very old but that's what was so unique about it. The rooms were updated nicely and very clean. Radiators were a little noisy. I would defiantly stay here again. The location was great. Staff very friendly. Restaurant staff and food were great.

We booked a room for the few of us that did not want to drive home after a bachelorette party. The room was gorgeous, parking was a breeze, and the location was perfect. The only issue would be that the radiator went off around three am and it sounded like two pipes being banged together.

After staying at other "boutique" hotels on Milwaukee's East Side, I am glad I finally found The Plaza. The suites are huge, have a large kitchenette and are very well appointed. One minor criticism, which I've heard might get fixed during a future renovation: bathrooms are tiny (but functional and incredibly clean. I had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath corner... More

Beware the room where we stayed (room 111) had a noisy heater. It woke my husband and me up early in the morning. It sounded like a whistling tea kettle--hard to ignore. Room also needed updating. It was nice that it had its own kitchen area with a fridge and microwave. Due to the noise we wouldn't come back here... More

In terms of sleep quality though, we were freezing. The hotel has radiator heat which didn't seem to be working properly. We were promptly brought extra blankets and... More
