Went to Milwaukee June 22, stayed here ,and went up to Kohler Waters Spa for my daughter's birthday. With her, and her bff, shared a room, which worked great. Girls had so much fun! The hotel is fab; easy going, beautiful, artsy. And an easy walk to the 3rd Ward historic district; great restaurants & shopping. The front desk people were so helpful in guiding & directing us to fun places, easily walkable.
I would happily stay here again; it is also a very romantic couples destination.
We ordered, for an "hors d'oevere", after arriving & settling,room service, the "Wisconsin Cheese Soup" in pretzel bowl; shared by us 3. Awesome!! Chef sent message; "85 degrees outside"; we said, cool in here. Gotta have cheese in Wisconsin...
Rooms large, beautiful, but cozy, and very artsy. Lovely bathroom, but strange shower with half door. Not terrible though. Only thing for 3 "girls"; no mirror in main room. Full length mirror in closet; but hard to do makeup while one of us in bathroom. But, small issue in the scheme of things; great room & time. The beds & pillows were very comfy. The room was very cold, though, and difficult to regulate temp, but again, no big deal in the scheme. I turned off the thermostat for awhile. On again at night; like it cool.
The bars, outdoor & indoor were phenomenal; wish I could be there with my honey sometime. Looks so romantic. The greeting with the refreshing drink was wonderful, too.
One thing to keep in mind, though is parking fees. They are extra, and rather pricy, so factor that in to your stay if driving. It wasn't much when shared with 3 for just 2 nights; but a week for a couple could add up. Just sayin'. Always the hidden fees; most places & times, everywhere.
I have no reason to come back this way, but if I did, would sure stay here! Overall, loved it!
