“Great value & location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Stayed here this weekend with two friends in a one bedroom suite. Clean & comfortable suite in downtown. Good location and walking distance to alot of areas in the city. The staff were very helpful providing recommendations in the area. Hotel offered free breakfast, computer access, wireless, and fitness cetner. Good value and would recommend staying here if you are looking for a suite.

Another good stay here at the Hampton Inn downtown Milwaukee. Had a room with 2 queens, the room was pretty tiny. As with many older downtown hotels, some rooms here are really spacious and others are like closets. This time we had one like a closet and it had a view of an abandoned building next door. The 2 beds were literally crammed into that room. I would definately ask not to have a tiny room like that again. We spent 2 nights, the first night we went down to the pool and got in the hot tub. When we walked in there some other people in the pool area who said you can't get in there there are too many chemicals in it. Boy were they right. I stuck my feet in but my husband got in. It stunk of chemicals so bad that he had to get out, his eyes were red, watering and burning all night. I told them at the desk and he called maintenance. The hot tub was closed after that and so the next night there was no hot tub for us. Pretty disappointing really. Would stay again for sure but next time we're trying the Hilton Garden Inn that's opening just across the river. Next time I stay at the Hampton I would definately tell them I don't want the tiny closet style rooms. Desk staff is super friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Be sure to be aware some rooms are super tiny so if you have more than 2 people be sure to mention y...

Stayed at this hotel while doing a baseball game in Milwaukee. It was conviently located near the Trolley and to other downtown venues. Our room was located on the second floor right off the elevator. The room was very clean with a large bathroom, a flat screen TV and free WIFI. Parking was in an attached garage which was easily accesible from our room. The breakfast provided by the hotel was very good with a spacious dining area overlooking the downtown area. Although a little pricey, it is downtown after all. The only problem we had was as we were leaving the parking garage a car came up the spiral exit and since it is a blind area we almost had a head on collision. I guess the fellow could not figure out how to pay to exit the garage area. With the exception of a small power failure on Sunday morning, the rest of our staff was uneventful.

Had some trouble with our reservation (our error not theirs) and Frederick was so kind. Before all of our transaction was complete he let us weary travelers up to our room to get things taken care of. All of the staff has been great. Only thing on the con list is room's bath is so small door bangs on curtin rod when you open it.

The room was large and clean, but the hotel is showing a lot of wear and tear and could use some updating. The front desk staff was excellent. Breakfast was adequate, typical hotel continental. Great restaurants are close and walkable and there is a shopping center across the street. It was a good value for our family of 5 but if we did not need the suite I would have stayed elsewhere.

On sept 2 just stopped in on a whim with family. Decent rate and friendly staff. We had a very large 2 queen with city view. Clean and comfortable. Beds very comfortable! Only negative was there was no mini frig and the pillows weren't comfy for us. Hotel decor is nice and modern, cozy sitting area and good breakfast. Kids loved the pool which by the way did not smell during our visit, as noted by other reviewer (problem must of been addressed).

Stayed at Hampton Inn and Suites during the Orientation Day at Marquette University. Great location and close to all the attractions in Downtown Milwaukee. Staff were great and even got an upgraded room. The accommodation includes a great breakfast every morning. I would recommend and stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Always book directly with Hilton Hotels.com
