In the nanosecond world of stainless steel, 4G, glass buildings and sleek decor as the norm, the Pfister is a step back to a 19th Century lifestyle and the ornate elegance only proud tradesmen can provide, with the true vintage-ness of the building and rooms appreciated. The lobby is breathtaking, the ceiling alone worth coming to see. The beautiful marble stairway is a pleasure to walk and the ample standard room is well appointed, with 15 ft or more ceilings, comfy beds and charming/ older but spotless bathrooms. We wanted the Victorian flavor so chose the lower building, not the tower. A walk-back in history.
And for those who must have their fix of 21st century cool-ness, visit Blu on the 23rd floor, with panoramic views of the lovely city of Milwaukee. Finally, sitting by the beautiful fireplace with Christmas decorations and attentive service was a great way to end the evening and parking valet was very prompt as we left the next morning. We'll be back!
