“Easy check in.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Great Valet protected parking. Warm cookies are a nice touch. Did not like the fact that they won't give you Hilton Honors points if you book under a corporate account and get a discounted rate. Why would I bother signing up for Hilton Honors if I don't get credit for staying here weekly on business travel. How else would anyone rack up at least 16 stays to get a free room through Hilton Honors if it wasn't a business traveler. No individual is gong to have 16 room stays unless it's for work. Ridiculous. Hotel was great, these membership deals are not.

Awesome hotel, with an excellent caring staff. Definitely a great hotel! From the cookies to the valet, they were all trained well and respectful to the customers. The shuttle was a great add. The restaurant staff was super. Location in downtown Milwaukee was just right. Definitely recommend this hotel to any Milwaukee traveler. They will treat you right.

No pool, but a nice layout for the hotel. They were a
ttentative and ready to serve the guests

The hotel is in a place you can move around by yourself with no trouble and quickly. This is fantastic because you can decide to hosting for business and after meeting day you can choose excellent restaurants very close to the hotel.

Also important to say for foreign travelers that the city looks safe and pretty clean.

People I got in touch also were friendly inside the hotel, milwaukee airport, shootle driver, etc....

Fortunately I have no trouble to register in or to comment about and this reinforce my recommendation for you to choose the hotel if you need on your next trip, this could be an excellent choice and decision. You will be happy, no doubt!!!

Not far away you can reach good stores and outlets such as best buy, etc....

The weather in September 2012 was great and pleasant during a week.

The hotel offers you good services, the daily rate reasonable and as said well installed and located.

You will love it!!!!

Make your choice and review sharing your next experience.

Have yoy all a happy new year!!!

We stayed here on Saturday Dec. 22 and had a wonderful experience. From the convenient FREE valet parking to the front desk and wonderful service for breakfast - a shout out to Angela our server who made us feel so welcome and special. And to David the food and beverage asst. director who we exchanged trip advice with, thanks! Don't overlook this hotel the next time you stay in Milwaukee.

Thank you for taking the time to write of your experience at the Doubletree by Hilton Milwaukee Downtown. In reading your review I would believe you to be the purchaser of a Living Social Certificate. Thank you for the wonderful review but I do need to correct one statement and that being Valet parking is not free. The is a fee but because you had purchased a certificate it was included in your stay. The vouchers were a great little value and we appreciate that you chose to spend time with us. Please come back and visit in the future. Sincerely, Kathryn

Very happy with our stay at The Double Tree. Check in was quick and efficient and we were quickly on our way to an upgraded room on the 10th floor. The hotel is older than I had expected and is in need of some cosmetic updates - however, the rooms were very clean and the entire property very well kept. There are flat screens in the rooms and there was granite in the bathroom but the hotel carpet looked old and so did the curtains in the room. We had Bucks tickets and it was a quick 4 or so block walk to the stadium and even on a very cold night - it was easy. When we returned the front desk clerk remembered that we went to the game - which was very nice. All n' all a great stay and we will return when in the area.

I stayed there for a couple of months 2011/2012. It is an excellent package for business. it is not really luxurious , but all you need. The rooms were nice..could need some improvements ( like bathroom fixtures etc.. ) - but overall good. Breakfast is good and "real" ( atmosphere about average , however , for restaurant and bar ) . The have a full bar and restaurant on site and food is elevated sports bar food. They have a daily special which is pretty healthy actually. Staff is super nice - valet parking is quick. One of our team had an emergency at the place...and they took care of her and her stuff..can highly recommend the place.

This was our third time staying at this hotel. Once again, another fantastic visit.
The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The desk staff was very friendly.
We got a great deal on the room and breakfast. The breakfast buffet was very good. We had dinner at Mimma's Cafe. It was wonderful!
