A fabulously old hotel with wonderful staff and perfect amenities. We visited on a Sunday and Monday to have a look at Marquette for our high school kids and see what else MKE had to offer. We intentionally went while Summerfest was on its 2 day break. This might account for the deeply discounted room rate we got from an online booking site.
We stayed in the older section of the hotel on the east side of the building. Sounds like the west side might be a little loud due to alley deliveries and traffic. Room was great - two double beds in separate bedroom, with a fold out sofa in the sitting room. We had free wifi, but that might have come along with the Club Pfister passes purchased. Next stay, we'll get a room in the tower.
Make sure to sit in the lobby bar and have a drink or two and just take in the surroundings. Stroll around the 2nd floor and look at the historical displays and pictures there. Definitely ask about the Pfister Club on the 23rd floor - cost was $40 a day ($30 was for in-and-out parking in the garage), includes continental breakfast and happy hour in the evening - hot and cold buffet and free drinks - for us and our 3 kids - it's worth it for the view alone!
