“Another Awesome Stay Downtown Milwaukee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2011

Spent a couple nights at the Hampton Inn while visiting Milwaukee to bring my son home from Marquette University. This Hampton is great...the rooms are so nice and clean, bedding is awesome and the breakfast is great. Staff is very attentive.

This hotel is amazing. The check in was fast we got there around noon and check in was not until 3p. They’re where 6 of us friends, and we stayed in one room. We got the 2-room suite. It had a large living room with refrigerator and a microwave. There was a huge bathroom with to sinks and plenty of counter space. The bedroom was like a whole other hotel room itself. It had table and chairs and nice lounge chairs, along with the two beds. In the morning they have free hot breakfast, which has many different items. The rooms had very strong walls and you could not hear a pin drop. When you have 6 people you tend to be a little loud. The staff was very fast and friendly. The best part was we only paid a hundred dollars a night. The one down fall is parking is 13 dollars to get in. If you leave your car in the parking stall your whole trip you will be fine, but if you leave and come back you will have to pay some money.

I just came back from Milwaukee after visiting my son at Marquette University, This hotel's staff is by far the best i have seen. Alisha, Jessica,Michael,Billy and Tanya all deserve praise for outstanding personalities. I had a couple of issues with the ac not working and after a couple of room changes i was settled. The breakfast was good. I think it should be offered until 11:00 on weekends. It closes at 10:00am. Our room had a seperate room with a pullout sofa and we had two tv's yeah!!!! We had a good stay. I might go back next month , only if the ac is back!!!!!!!

Room Tip: call hotel,aaa aarp or marquette rate

It was a great stay! I'm very happy that our group chose to conduct our conference at this hotel. Perfect location near some great restaurants, bars, and shops. The 6th floor ballroom was great for our meeting- but it could have used additional power access (power strips, extension cords) for 25+ computers (we'll be sure to coordinate this better ahead of time for next year - and they did a great job accommodating us on short notice. The wait time for the elevators between floors was a little frustrating at times - I ended up taking the stairs to/from the 10th floor several times. On the bright side, I got some good exercise and the wait wasn't really that bad in the grand scheme of things. We very much appreciated the complimentary wi-fi - and the speed and quality of the connection was the best out of ANY hotel I have stayed at on business recently. Equally appreciated was the free printing at the business center - which came in extremely handy for printing off my airline tickets prior to departure. The breakfast was great and the coffee was always hot. It would have been nice to have a hotel shuttle to/from the airport but since we could expense the reasonable cab fare it wasn't an issue. All in all it was a wonderful stay and I will definitely stay at this hotel again next time I'm in Milwaukee.

We had a great time. We had the King 1 bedroom suite with sofabed. Perfect for family of 3. The hotel was very neat and clean. It looked like it had been remodeled in the not so distant past. A full breakfast buffet was available. Nice, but the eggs and potatoes served that day were not so great. I will never understand why some people come down in the pajamas and bare feet. The front desk clerk and others we dealt with were very helpful and friendly. We needed extra towels. They were delivered quickly, and with 2 pieces of cholocate! Our room looked out at an alley and an old building with boarded up windows, but that made it extremely quite with no street noice! We were surpised at how abandoned the neighborhood was. The Mall across the street was nearly empty. I would recommend this hotel highly. It was very convenient to the Public Museums. Tricky to check in - very little parking in front, but direct entrance from the parking ramp in the rear after we did.

Very disappointing experience. The front desk staff likes to hide in a room behind. There is a major renovation in progress and swimming pool is unavailable but no mention on website. Its very expensive (paid $400+ for two nights) but nowhere near "value for money". 100% satisfaction gurantee seems to be only for sign board and not in practice. Cheap foam plates and cutlery used for breakfast. Bakery/bread bins are often empty and I saw guests walking to kitchen to request them filled. Kitchen lady kept complaining about being overworked. Choose Hilton Garden Inn instead. Its a nice chain from same group of hotels.

First the positives: Hampton Inn is terrific value-for-money, excellent location, good breakfast choices, beaut happy hour with free nibbles and drinks and no complaints about cleanliness or staff.

But, just a couple of negatives we have to mention: a basic room is pretty small, with not much room to store bags etc. and not a real good bed or pillows. Well and truly about time they were replaced!

But, having said, we would still recommend this hotel if staying for any length of time in Downtown Milwaukee.

We were attending a week-long convention at the nearby Midwest Airlines Center. This hotel was not only cheaper than the official convention hotel (the Hilton, with an “official convention discount”), but the Hampton had free breakfast, free happy hour, free wireless internet and cheaper daily parking rates.
