I visited Milwaukee recently for a triathlon. I was so impressed by the entire city and my experience at the Plaza Hotel.

We loved the location and the room, but probably wouldn't return again during the summer because of the loud wall air conditioner, we didn't sleep well. All in all, though, it's great, not your typical chain hotel. Highly recommend just not in the summer.

Rooms and bathroom are dated but very large, clean and comfortable. Price was very fair and Cafe breakfast is tops. Location is very good for EastTown and downtown and lake shore. Front desk and room staff were great.

We visited Milwaukee for a baseball game and had a wonderful stay at the plaza, which was close to downtown and area attractions. The staff was incredibly friendly and helped us with a car issue in front of the hotel. Would definitely stay here again
