“Great Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This past week, I stayed at the Doubletree by Hilton in Milwaukee while attending a four-day conference. The front desk, housekeeping, dining and management personnel took special pride in taking care of their guests. They were cordial, kind, and personable when assisting guests and no question went unanswered and no request denied. The facility is well-maintained and the room was very clean and comfortable. I cannot remember a more pleasant experience while traveling. If you are planning a trip to Milwaukee, be certain to stay at the Doubletree downtown. I am confident you will have an extraordinary visit.

In Milwaukee for a conference. The hotel next door is connect to the Delta center, Doubletree is not. However, this hotel has reasonable secure parking, free wifi as well as in room refrigerator and microwave. Staff was very helpful. I was not leaving until late afternoon. Manager arranged for my bags to be held and permitted the vehicle to remain in garage until I was ready to leave.
Doors are secure, rooms comfortable.

Stayed there for 2 nights on a business trip. The room was great, spacey and clean. Some interiour a little bit tired but overall very good. Could have used a bath tub though.

Reception was great and the fast check-out made my exit even better.

Had breakfast one morning which was good, but I don't have any comparison with an US hotel as this was my first experience.

Street window in the room was not very thight so you could feel the cold (-5 degrees C) outside and some street noise.

Used the fitness room once and this was OK.

Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: A room on the east side is probably quieter.

Wonderful location, helpful staff, and nice people all around. My boyfriend and I enjoyed wandering and seeing the sights this lovely city has to offer. Really easy to find off the highway, helpful and speedy valet.

Room Tip: Double Bed rooms have Full size beds, Make SURE you specify if you need a bigger bed.

It is a great place to stay and the look-and-feel of the rooms, and the hotel in general was a great experience. I just had an issue with the computers not working in the business center (but I passed that as a feedback and I guess they might have been fixed, not a big issue though). Would definitely want to stay here again.

Room Tip: I'm not very picky with rooms so not sure what to suggest.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

I have stayed here at various times this year for a total of about a month. I have found the staff to be excellent. They are always willing to go out of thier way to please you . My rooms have always been very clean (though some show wear, such as frayed carpet the like) and the housekeeping was very good as well.
The negatives - $15 a day valet only parking, the housekeeping staff that was clanking their carts in the halls at 7 am, the very noisy alley side especially when the dumpster is being emptied at 5 in the morning (do not take a room below the 5th floor on that side), the extremely slow elevators, and the fact that though it is smoke free hotel there were several times there was smoking and they did little to quell it.
Over all, it is very convenient location downtown and easy on and off the freeway and the great staff made it even more enjoyable.

I have stayed here many times and have never had a bad experience The staff goes out of their way to be polite and ask if they can do anything for you.On my last trip I was having knee problems when I asked the front desk if I could get a foot stool I had one in my room within 20 minutes,I will be staying with them next time I am in Milwaukee .PS the cookie is always a nice touch.

Room Tip: top 3 floors on the front of the hotel you can see the lake
