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!

The rooms don't have A/C, the doors are not conventional hotel room doors, it's like you are living in a old rickety apartment that has attempted to be remodeled. Way too expensive as well. Don't stay.

Great welcoming staff! The parking fee was much more reasonable than other places in the area. Loved the atmosphere of the hotel. Courtyard was gorgeous in the fall. Loved the kitchenette area too. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to others!!

I stayed at the Plaza Hotel for two nights last weekend. What a cute, historic hotel! The rooms all have kitchenettes and there is a great market one block away. Breakfast in the hotel's cafe was really good. If you are looking for a hotel with jacuzzis and other modern perks, this is not for you. The bathroom is small... More
