“Cozy visit on a cold winter week-end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Big, bright room overlooking Red Arrow Park Ice Skating Rink. Plenty of room for the two of us with a king bed, desk, sitting area with two chairs and big screen television and very clean. Chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne were waiting for us to celebrate our anniversary downtown Milwaukee. The hotel staff was super friendly and very accommodating. The concierge, Catherina Matthews, was beyond helpful with our dinner plans and entertainment, continually updating us regarding events going on around town. We walked across the street and went ice skating under the lights on the frigid Friday night we were there. Then came back to CLEAR and enjoyed their chocolate bar; a sweet touch! We had dinner at the Rumpus Room just down the street (plenty of dining options), took in a show, had one of the best brunches ever at Kilawat, walked around the Third Ward and enjoyed casual cocktails at The Wicked Hop. There sure was plenty to do and see; we thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and area!

Room Tip: Corner suite on a higher floor overlooking the skating rink was perfect!

The hotel itself is nice. The staff are superb. The bellman, the desk clerks - all excellent.

The rooms are a little goofy - a small sitting area with a narrow corridor leading back to the bed. The bedroom was small - just enough room to walk around the bed. However it was quiet and comfortable. Just a poor use of space (unless you want a separate sitting area).

The hotel restaurant food was excellent. The Pfister may be slightly better but this is a solid second choice and usually a better value.

Big rooms with nice views of the river or downtown. Lots of cool things within walking distance during nice weather, and a good bar for when the weather is bad. Room service was good and the staff is real good. Nice parking garage which makes things real easy.

The Intercontinental turned out to be a wonderful place to stay. The hotel was lovely — a great room with a view and decadent chocolate bar and live music on Friday night. But I REALLY liked the location. It was within walking distance to so much of what Milwaukee has to offer. We walked to the Riverwalk, Art Museum, Third Ward, Old World and Brady Street. Plus it has a top notch restaurant right on the premises, Kil@wat. The very best oatmeal ever and dinner was truly gourmet. Plus, the hotel staff could not have been nicer. The server in the lounge even hunted down horseradish to honor my request to have the bartender make me a bloody mary just the way I like it. Just right. This is the place for me when visiting Milwaukee.

I have been coming to Milwaukee for years and my last 10 stays have been at this hotel. The rooms are excellent, the location to restaurants and business connections is great and the staff from the bell/valet, front desk, wait staff and management makes things happen. I have a certain way and location that I desire my room to be located and my profile is considered each time by the staff to provide me with the bet possible room block to meet expectations. Even if there is a miscue, they fix it in minutes with great attitudes. Highly recommended! From someone who travels 150 nights per year on business.

Room Tip: Inside room away from the street.

I have stayed in practically every main hotel in downtown Milwaukee, the Intercontinental is certainly the best. Well run good hotel with helpful staff, good resturant, decent bar, spacious rooms with full size desk space to get some work done. Fee WiFi (why do some hotels still charge for this?) with a decent connection speed. Fair room rate for this quality of hotel. If you are in Milwaukee on business, I would recommend it.

Very nice location. Staff was knowledgeable of the area and informative as to where to go for breakfast & dinner. Room was nice but disappointing. It would have been nice to have a small refrigerator, and microwave. Did not have to go outside to gain access to the Pabst theater for a show. The Miami Heat basketball team was staying there while playing the Milwaukee Buck's. Many fans gathered outside while players were boarding the team bus. Probably would look for somewhere else to stay on another visit to Milwaukee.
