“New Year's Eve Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I wish I had remembered to bring my swimsuit, then I could have enjoyed the saltwater pool that was open until midnight. Next year! My boyfriend treats me to a whirlpool room every New Year's Eve and it's always been wonderful. The heating unit was noisy at first, but then we didn't use it after we warmed up the room to our liking, so the room was nice and quiet after that. The hot water whirlpool was wonderful, and they give you some bath salts to add to the tub - nice! They even gave us complimentary champagne and two chocolate covered strawberries in the mini-fridge. I love the toiletries that they provide and the valet service was fast and friendly. If you happen to go in summertime, check out their beautiful rooftop garden.

Great location with spectacular rooms. I was completely caught off guard by how large my room was for the price, and the atmosphere of the hotel is extremely luxurious. Beats out many other hotels that I have stayed at in Milwaukee over the years. This is a must stay hotel!

Living in the burbs of Milwaukee, not often do we book a hotel there. We were going to book the Iron Horse for my husband's Christmas party at the Italian Community Center, but they would only book for 2 nights, not one. On to the best part, Hotel Metro. We came in after parking in a lot only a 1/2 block away.$10 overnight. We arrive and were greeted by a very sweet, pleasant,and efficient front desk young lady. (Can't remember her name, long, curly hair). We went up to the room, which was immaculate, with beautiful carpeting, decor, and a fabulous pillowtop bed. We are now buying that mattress for our home, it was so beyond comfortable. They drove us to the ICC in a 1982 british taxi, with a very nice man for free(don't forget to tip.) What a fun perk. Even the doorman was helpful, and nice. Staff greets you as you pass, smiles everywhere. The jacuzzi tub was a relaxing end to a great evening, after having drinks at Metro's bar/restaurant, and they have an entire list of $5 dollar martinis! Breakfast was good. They had been bombarded with people, and worked so hard to get everyone served. We will be back, love this place. A hotel with actual service. Could make this a w/e destination, where you enjoy the hotel room., and never have to leave..........

I stayed at this hotel in connection with a business trip. The hotel is very well located with several great restaurants within walking distance as well as the lake for a great morning run. Ask for a room away from the street, otherwise a bit noisy. The breakfast is not the best.
The staff are all very friendly and service-minded.
I did not have a chance to visit the Zen spa/pool area.
I will be returning to this hotel next time I visit Milwaukee.

Room Tip: Pick a room facing away from the street

Over the last four months I've stayed at the Hotel Metro three times and each time I love it even more. My favorite aspect of this hotel are the eclectic room styles. Every room has it's own unique flavor. My second favorite aspect is the service. All of the employees are very friendly and willing to help, especially Mr. Miguel. :-) I also greatly appreciated the classic car that I've used on multiple occasions to get me a few places in the downtown area. It's so cool to ride around in that. Finally, location, location, location. We are surrounded by great restaurants, night life, and a refreshing walk away from the lake. If you have to stay anywhere in Milwaukee for a night or a weekend, stay at Hotel Metro!

The hotel has a historical charm. The rooms are spacious. I had a king's suite that had a living space with the bedroom hidden behind a wall for added privacy and a spacious bathroom with a large bath tub. Staff are very courteous and friendly. They have only valet parking $25/day but it is very fast and convenient. The restaurant is also very nice and accommodating. I used to go to the restaurant and ask for a quick breakfast and they nicely provided. Excellent experience overall!

We stayed in a 2 room "suite". There was only one bathroom, but it was not an issue for the four of us. The lofted walls can be a bit awkward, especially if you are sharing with friends as we did. I would describe the style of the room as "antique modern". The suite was spacious and the staff was BEYOND friendly. They have the most amazing rooftop, so make sure you check it out if you stay, which you should!
