“An awesome place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

My boyfriend and I stood at the InterContinental for a getaway weekend and we were positively surprised. We got a great deal with $120 per night- it still seems a little pricey but it is well worth it. The hotel has a lot to offer. Make sure you try their restaurant Kilowat on Floor2! Everything is modern and artsy and definitely gave us the wow effect. The room was tidy and clean and the receptionist was very helpful. Some of the restaurant's servers could be more professional, but besides we would stay at this hotel any time again!

Room Tip: We had a King Deluxe and the pillows we slept on were just AMAZING and comfy!

In December my wife and I stayed here. The staff was all smiles and very courteous. The room was modern, bed was like a cloud & great shower with hot hot water. We had a nice view overlooking a small downtown ice rink. I took her to see "A Christmas Carol" at the Pabst theatre which just so happens to be connected to the hotel so there was no need to get all bundled up for the winter weather. We lounged in the bar, had a few drinks and on Tuesdays they offer bocce ball right in the lobby. Fun. Amazing show and great hotel. Had dinner at a great downtown neighborhood place called Swingin' Door Exchange. Food was great and the service was warm.
Also, convenient underground heated parking.

The customer service was truly memorable. We spent the night at the hotel for my son's wedding and our every need was met! The service from the front desk and concierge was remarkable (especially Mitchell, Josh & Daniel) they unloaded our car and brought everything to our room and unloaded for us. And did the same when we checked out! The wedding reception location (Grand Saloon) was beautiful and they took care of all the needs of the bride and groom. The lobby bar was very fun. The bartenders Rob, Ashley & Andrew were friendly. Thank you for taking care of us along with all of our out of town guests.

My wife and I recently stayed at the InteContinental and were immediately impressed as we walked into the gorgeous, upscale main lobby. The staff greeted us with warm smiles and were extremely accommodating. Our room was magnificent and clean. We had an amazing view of the city. We truly enjoyed eating at the Kilowatt restaurant and sipping on cocktails at the Clear Lounge. The atmospheres in these places were better than most Manhattan restaurants and lounges. The doormen were also very nice and helpful, offering assistance and directions whenever my wife and I ventured into town. We stayed on New Year’s Eve and were blown away by the party that the hotel and staff threw. Ice sculptures, a live band, DJ, and incredible drink specials were just a few of the many awesome amenities the hotel offered on that special night. They went out of their way to make our New Year's Eve magical. THANK YOU! I strongly recommend staying at this hotel anytime you’re in Milwaukee! We can't wait to go back!

What a nice treat leaving your hotel room..head down to a five star dinner and walk through the connected atrium to the Pabst Theater to a comedy show. Friendly staff, huge up to date workout area and great amenities. Worth every penny. We stayed on New Years Eve and had a great experience.

We spent the entire weekend at the hotel for a wedding and our every need was met! The service from the front desk and concierge was remarkable (especially Mitchell, Josh & Daniel) they unloaded our car and brought everything to our room and unloaded for us. And did the same when we checked out! The wedding reception location (Grand Saloon) was beautiful and they took care of all the needs of the bride and groom. The lobby bar was very fun - even had chocolate fondue. The bartenders Rob, Ashley & Andrew were great! My only negative thoughts are (1) was that the hotel itself did not have a pool - we had to walk 6 blocks to their sister hotel to use that pool. There was no extra charge to use it and the pool was nice with views on the Big Lake from the 23rd floor. And (2) there are no connector rooms with double beds on both sides - only connectors with 1 king and double bed in other. But the hotel was great to bring in a comfortable roll away bed.

Room Tip: The corner rooms are HUGE - one of my other family members had one, I would request next time I stay...

Prior to attending a show at the Pabst, my wife and I decided to stop by the IC's lounge Clear for appetizers and drinks. The lounge was not at all crowded and there were three waitresses working. We sat for ten minutes before a waitress made her way over, and actually watched two other tables go to the bar to serve themselves. Drink orders were taken, and we asked for appetizer menus. Again, a VERY long wait for the drinks to be served by a second waitress with only one of the two waters we requested. Waitress #2 did not take our appetizer order. We waited, finished our drinks (still no waitress). OK, we give up. Watched another table go to the bar to get their own check, and figured I'd do the same. Waitress showed up, and was shocked we were leaving. She left the check, never came back to get it. I ended up paying at the bar. The very helpful waitress at our next stop was probably pleasantly surprised at the size of her tip. She got the tip that the Clear staff didn't. Steer "Clear" of the Intercontinental lounge.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience here on TripAdvisor. Let me first apologize for the untimeliness of service in CLEAR Lounge. Our Food & Beverage leadership team is constantly working to improve our procedures to make the overall experience prompt and pleasant for each of our guests. The difficulties you experienced are certainly not the ideal standard we work towards.
I hope that you will give us another chance to recover your trust, and receive the attentive service we strive to provide to each guest that we serve.
