“A convenient, well appointed hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I recently stayed here during a convention at the Convention Center across the street. It was a short walk outside to the entrance which was super convenient. Registration staff were friendly and attentive. You always have to love the warm chocolate chip cookies! Never disappointing! Room was clean and quiet despite being on the busy street. Overall a positive stay.

Green Features: Loved seeing the in-room recycling bins. I appreciated being able to recycle the paper and booklets that I was unable to carry home.

We were greeted by an very cold and officious front desk clerk upon our arrival. I asked for a quiet room without feathers -hypo allergic free as listed on my profile and got a room on the street side with plenty of noise, feathers, and was very dusty almost unclean. It took them a while to change the room to feather free but it was done professionally and as quickly as possible as well as a request for an extension cord since the room had not been updated in at least 10 years and lacked electrical outlets except behind the bed that was impossible to move. The room felt dirty and the windows had not been washed in at least 10 years either and were dirty and grungy. Would never stay here ever again and questionable if we would ever stay at another Doubletree.

Excellent staff, quiet room, good hotel restaurant, convenient parking (valet). Hotel location within walking distance of Marquette and several other west town (downtown) places. I appreciated that wireless internet was included with the base room price. Internet connection was sufficient for streaming and downloading email attachments.

My room was clean and comfortable. I took the Amtrak train out early in the morning and wanted to stay nearby. It was a reasonable walk to the Amtrak station (take 5th St not 6th to cross). I'd skip the 24 hr Dunkin Donuts and buy similar at train station.
The Doubletree was a great option in downtown Milwaukee.

After riding 1500 miles in our bike, it was a peace of mind to get to a nice hotel. It was nice the hospitality we received from the DoubleTree staff. Usually some hotels when they see bikers they give you the worst room. DoubleTree we had an excellence service, and the staff was so nice. Thank you DoubleTree for making our stay so pleasant.

I stayed at this hotel while on business in Milwaukee and didn't have many expectations but was pleasantly surprised at the many good points about this hotel. Staying downtown in a bigger city can be such a pain but I found easily accessible parking options without a problem. Also this hotel is just a stone's throw from the main highway so it's super easy to find. Upon checking in, I was greeted by a very friendly and welcoming woman who handed me a warm cookie. Nice!! Checked into my room and it was very clean with a fresh design. The beds and pillows were unbelievably comfortable! The wifi was easy to log into and worked great, and I used it for a long time. The coffee maker in the room was a nicer one, a little bit nicer than a normal hotel coffee maker. Huge bonus, there was real cream rather than that horrible powdered coffee whitener offered in most hotels. If you prefer a 'real' cup of coffee then you can simply step across the street to Dunkin Donuts and get one. The whole staff was amazingly friendly and helpful.

There are two things that could use improvement. 1. The air conditioner was way too noisy. (I give them some slack on this as it was about 100+ degrees and very humid during my whole stay. 2. The area right outside the hotel entrance is made of some VERY smooth stone that seemed extremely dangerous for anyone with any kind of heel to walk on. I felt light a tight rope walker trying to walk across it. I seriously can't believe it hasn't been replaced or somebody has had a horrible accident. I can't imagine how slippery it is during winter with the snow.

Overall I very much enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay at this location again!
