Stayed in a two bedroom suite at The Plaza Hotel last weekend. The folks at the front desk were friendly and accommodating. Same goes for the housekeeping staff and the folks that work in the restaurant. The hotel is an easy walk to downtown bars and restaurants as well as to the lake. Highly recommend this place!

We visited for a few days for pleasure. Very conveniently located. Staff was friendly. Room was clean. A bit outdated, but that's the style! The only complaint is parking. One night we returned after a brewers game and the lot was full. So we were sent to another lot around the building. Good visit. Only tip would be to better... More

The place is a bit old and the room appeared to be a former apartment or studio, but it was clean, and best of all, very quiet. The bathtub caulk seemed to have a bit of mildew on it, but otherwise, a very reasonably-priced and clean place to stay. It's north of downtown, about thirty minutes by foot from the... More

I visited Milwaukee recently for a triathlon. I was so impressed by the entire city and my experience at the Plaza Hotel. Stacey and Dave took such great care of my family and I, from the moment we checked in. The entire staff is friendly, helpful and they make you feel right at home. The Plaza is charming- the rooms...

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.

Downtown Milwaukee doesn't suffer from a lack of historic non-cookie-cutter hotels. We chose the Plaza mainly for it's proximity to Veteran's Park. As it turned out, it's in a quiet little area still just a short distance from the rest of downtown. While some may be put off by it's lack of amenities that some require or at least consider...

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

Groceries, restaurants and art museum all within walking distance. Nice kitchenette and rooms were spacious. The staff was both friendly and helpful. A good, safe place to stay. We would stay there again.
