The hotel is old and charming, but so is the plumbing. Be prepared for the water to go from freezing to scalding several times during a shower. It was also pretty noisey (street noise/creaking/ thumping from other rooms). But it was a cool old building and would be good for an extended stay with a large closet and full kitchen.

Overall this is a good place to stay because the building offers a glimpse into the past and is quiet. The large suite is huge, sleeps five and useful for families with the kitchen. The neighborhood is quiet and preferable to the hustle of downtown. The cafe has great food - no need to go out.

I am a former resident of Milwaukee and the other night I had a chance to send the kids to relatives and spend a night on the town with my wife and another couple. Being a former resident I know the city very well and also a bit about the hotels Milwaukee has to offer. I chose the Plaza because... More

My second time in Milwaukee and the location was perfect for being able to go to downtown or to Brady Street and even to Miller Park. The rooms came with a kitchen and a large closet and would especially be fit for someone who was on a longer business stay. Either way, great building, room and the restaurant had fantastic... More

Location is good in that there is a market and many restaurants nearby. It's within walking distance of beautiful Lake MI, the Art Museum, the $1 Trolley stop and Cathedral Square. EASY city to maneuver.

Parked our car and walked everywhere. When we were tired of walking we took a cab back. The neighborhood is so beautiful. Breakfast was wonderful and we didn't have to go outside of the hotel. Love the old feel charm of your place. Can't wait to come back again.

I stayed at The Plaza Hotel on a business trip for two nights. For some reason, all of the larger, downtown hotels were booked for the two days I was in town, so based on TripAdvisor reviews, I decided to try this hotel. I typically don't venture to non-Starwood or Marriott hotels, but out of necessity, I chose the Plaza.... More

The reviews I read sold me on the staying at the Plaza. Maybe my expectations were to high going in. I found the room and hotel rather dated and the cafe average. I wish I could give a better review..

This hotel is really fantastic if you're looking for a refuge from the world. We appreciated the fully-stocked kitchenette (it even came with a cutting board and knife!) and enjoyed having the cafe on the premises. That said, our view was pretty awful (bottom floor view into the neighboring building's parking lot) and the bathroom was a little small and... More

Very COOL place to stay. Park your car and walk everywhere. Eat here, its great! Room was cozy. No corporate feel here, which in our book is a plus. The historic feel of the place made us feel at home.
