We stayed at The Pfister Hotel on 2/9. Our hotel stay was a gift from our daughter and brand new son-in-law, it was their way of thanking us for assisting with their recent wedding. We arrived at the hotel at 1pm expecting to be told that check-in wouldn't be until 3pm, we were pleasantly surprised to be told that our room was ready.
Lobby: The lobby of this hotel is breathtakingly beautiful. The ornate architecture takes you back to another era when craftsmenship was important. By far one of the most beautiful hotel lobby's that I've ever seen.
Front Desk: The front desk staff were incredibly friendly and very efficient, we were even given some great ideas of local places to try for a late lunch.
Room: We stayed in a king room (#2007) located on the 20th floor of the tower building. Our room was very spacious and comfortable and the best part was the incredible view facing Lake Michigan. The late night view of downtown Milwaukee was just beautiful too. Noise level from the hall, elevator and neighboring rooms was a non-issue during our stay.
Bar: We enjoyed a late afternoon cocktail at the Blu bar. We sat at a very comfortable table near the the windows that offered floor to ceiling views towards lake Michigan and the city. I could have sat there for hours enjoying the view. The service was good and the cocktails are stiff. The drink menu at Blu would satisfy even the most fussy customer.
Location: Perfect. We love to walk and explore downtown Milwaukee and the location of this hotel was great. It is a few blocks from the lake front museum, less than a mile from the BMO Bradley Center, and a short walk from the river front walk-way that is an enjoyable walk even on a breezy February afternoon.
We will definitely return to this beautiful hotel.
