“Great Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

On a recent trip to the Milwaukee area we stayed at this fine hotel. Upon registering they gave us homemade chocolate cookies,mmmmmm very tasty. We wanted to be near the Potawatamie Casino and this hotel is very close ,also very close to Marquette University. The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. They also have a shuttle that can take you to the Casino,free of charge a nice feature. The hotel staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. I just wish they didn't charge for the parking after all you are staying at their property.

We stayed here to be near the casino. Which was the main reason for being here. The rooms were nice. The casino sent me a hotel voucher and free valet. So my stay was extra special. Even if I didnt get a break I would still stay here.

The Double Tree hotel in downtown Milwaukee, WI is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. You get an amazing chocolate chip cookie at check in. The hotel rooms are very clean and the beds are so comfortable with lots of pillows and the sheets are nice and soft.

Room Tip: Ask for suite or mini suite they have microwaves and refrigerator

My friend and I stayed for two nights at the beginning of January. We were promptly greeted and given warm chocolate chip cookies from the front desk. A valet is available to park your car for $15 a day with in and out privileges which is great. Our room was on the 9th floor, two double beds which were very comfy, a mini-fridge and desk area and a nice sized bathroom. The location was great as we could walk to dinner and cab it home from the 3rd ward. It was a perfect base for exploring Milwaukee and I would definitely recommend this hotel to other travelers.

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!!!
