“Great Hotel all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Excellent hotel for a business traveler

Service: We were met with great service from the time we arrived. I'd heard mid westerners were nice, but this staff exceeded nice. They were great; very professional and courteous. When we asked for a good beer and brat place to check out, we got personal recommendations from the bellman (which did not disappoint).

Location: On that note, the location is great and we could walk to any number of great restaurants and pubs. It's close to many major office buildings - we walked to our meetings too. In addition to that, I was able to step out the door of the hotel and go on a run to the lake, which was great.

Rooms: The rooms were large, nice and clean. Typical of most InterContinental Hotels where I have stayed.

Lobby: They lobby felt cool and was fairly active. While I did not do this personally, apparently you can play indoor bocce ball once a week or so in the lobby. Sounds interesting.

Cost/Value: Finally, the cost was very reasonable for the quality that you get.

I will definitely stay here again when I travel to Milwaukee.

If I could ask for a review that would cover who we work hard to be, this would be it. Thank you for so generously taking the time to address the many "faces" that represent who we are. It is reassuring to hear when we "hit the mark" for a guest. It will be a pleasure to serve you again.

We stayed here on a mini road trip from Chicago and enjoyed our short stay in Milwaukee. Sadly for us there was a Bachelor party on the same floor as our room and we were kept awake by them and eventually the police removing them, for a few hours that night. The hotel room itself was very good and the hotel very nice otherwise.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, if they exist!?

It is always difficult to hear when other guests impede the pleasure of other guests. I am happy to know our staff was responsive in handling the issue. Despite the inconvenience of the party, we appreciate the kind words on the hotel as a whole.

A few things. Hair in the bathroom tub and floor, electricity didn't work on the left side of the room, fire alarm goes off and forced to go outside. We return to elevators that didn't work for quite some time. Climb stairs 5 flights. That night we were kept up to people knocking on doors, screaming down hallways, slamming doors. The walls are very thin. You can hear EVERYTHING going on in the next room. Next morning, the receptionist doesn't even ask how our stay was. I would not recommend, nor go back here. Free parking for the burden would have been nice...

Room Tip: I would suggest possibly going through the hotel itself, maybe they will give you a nice room that w...

I stayed here for one week on business and the staff was amazingly helpful, especially Joshua Hunt. The location is wonderful and I would listen to staff recommendations. I really enjoyed Elsa's and Wards.

My room was extremely clean spacious and quiet. Everyone was helpful from the bell staff, desk, room service and wait staff.

I would return for sure. An easy stay away from home.

I stayed here when the property was sold out. Service at every turn was top notch. The rooms were clean and quiet, but a bit small which I guess is to be expected with a city hotel. The happy hour specials in the lobby bar sufficed for dinner on two seperate nights. The property is close to everything downtown and is very well maintained.

Room Tip: Ask for an east or north facing room for the best views.

Great location in this modern hotel along the river. Walkable to just about anywhere in central part of the city, and is great for both business travel or a weekend at summerfest. Rooms were comfortable, clean and well appointed. The lobby, is well done, and has a nice bar. Service is top notch. Parking does not appear to is be part of the hotel and in another part of the building complex. Though it can be pricey, it is a hotel I would recommend to out of town guests, and would return here again.

Room Tip: I like higher room and a view towards the old city hall.. but everyone has their opinion..

We stayed in this hotel Labor Day weekend – on a quick holiday trip from Chicago. The hotel location was very good – right on the riverwalk – with easy access to restaurants and downtown without a car. The parking garage is a little bit of a hassle. It does not appear to be owned by the hotel itself so parking directions were confusing and it was almost entirely full when we got there. We did not get the car out each day – but if you wanted to do so you might find it somewhat inconvenient.

We had after dinner drinks in the lobby bar (called CLEAR) a few nights in a row, and our server was quick to remember us. The lobby and bar have a nice clubby feel and some great changing lighting – the whole place certainly feels bustling. There were a few weddings taking place during our stay –so there seemed to be constant stream of crying bridesmaids and drunk groomsmen filling the elevators, bar, halls and lobby. It wasn't an imposition - you just have to be up for that sort of thing. One thing I enjoyed was a weekend chocolate buffet they set up at the bar. It was very well done, and you could select just a few dessert truffles to have with your drink.

We did have the opportunity to use the gym during our stay - which was fine with a few machine and towels and water. We were very impressed with the size of our room, as it had a whole separate sitting area with a second TV a couch and a coffee table. It was a perfect place for planning our day and using the wifi, which worked well. I was pretty under-whelmed with the quality of room cleaning, which occurred after 6pm each day and was nothing more than a hurried pulling up of the bed sheets. Throw pillows remained on the floor and the bathroom was not touched – we were forced to get new shampoo from the concierge downstairs. Aside from that – no other complaints and we ended our weekend with a lovely (and pretty reasonably priced) room service breakfast.
