The Pfister certainly is grand. What a cool old place... The hallways alone could be used as taxiways at an airport.
I checked in on Monday to a beautiful corner room with huge windows and a marble bath. Everything was clean, I found nothing that made me uncomfortable. Staff was always friendly and helpful. While staying I ate at the Mason Street Grill three times (embarrassing I know) but the food was always delicious and so close. I also ate at the Cafe which was wonderful.
Location wise, for my trip, I give it 4 stars only because it was a little long of a walk to/from the Delta Center multiple times a day but at the same time the street behind the Pfister has awesome rating options so that evens it out.
I will certainly return the next time I am in Milwaukee. Thanks!
