“Good Choice, Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I spent two nights at the Double Tree with my wife while visiting friends travelling from Denver in early May 2013. Overall the Double Tree has quality rooms with decent size, comfortable beds, and good quality fixtures. The service was solid.

The Location is probably the Double Tree's best asset. Just across the street from the Frontier Airlines Center and only a few blocks to the River and some of the best dining in Milwaukee (and Wisconsin), what's not to like? There is a Starbucks and Dunkin Doughnuts within 200 feet. It is easy access and and off the interstate highway was well, so you can easily get out to Miller Park to catch a Brewers game (which we did), head over to the exciting Third Ward, or other parts of the region.

The downsides include the limited parking, lack of pool, and very limited fitness center. Due to the limited parking, parking is Valet only. That's a cool service, but it slows you down if you need to get anything from your car or to get your car out to head out on the town, especially while it is busy. The lack of a pool is not a big deal, but a nice extra. The Fitness Center is important for me while travelling, and the Double Tree just as a hotel room were a couple of treadmills are stashed - without ventillation or anything else. Good thing it is a good location for running.

Overall I give the Double Tree 4 out of 5 for good rooms and location, and down for the limited amentities. The value was good.

We stayed here when visiting Marquette University. The school is only a short walk away and very convenient. We were pleased with the hotel - not a great value but it's hard to get a great rate in downtown Milwaukee during the week. Overall, very good - we would stay here again.

This is an older downtown property but it it is being renovated and it already fits the bill of a solid example of what a Doubletree should be.
The service folks from the valets to the front desk were friendly and helpful.
The property is across a parking lot from the historic Hilton Milwaukee and is in easy walking distance of literally a hundred or more stores, restaurants and bars.
The only quasi negative I would say is that the hotel only offers valet parking and does not have a self parking option but it is a relatively reasonable charge of 15.00 per night.
This was my first time staying at the Doubletree but it certainly won't be my last.

I hope that you get a chance to meet Andrew. He was the front desk clerk during my stay at the hotel. He is super sweet, kind, thoughtful and obviously loves his job! Also, the beds and pillows are super comfortable. My head hit the pillow and I was out!

I can't express how great this staff was, from the moment I called to make my reservation until the time I got in my car to leave everyone was incredibly nice and courteous. Everyone at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful and even went above and beyond my expectations to help me get a milk to go along with my amazing warm cookie at check in. Everything at this hotel was great, I cannot say enough great things about this hotel and my experience with the great staff there. Thank you so much!

Normally stay accross the road at the Hilton but as it was full, I booked in here. Glad I did as I prefer this now. From the warm cookie, the pretzels and water in the room, much appreciated!

Will definately be back

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel in Downtown Milwaukee and just as before our stay was excellent. The service was fantastic and the hotel itself was fresh, clean and comfortable. You can't go wrong with this property in my opinion.
