The staff at this hotel are fantastic. The rooms are a great value. They are comfortable, clean, and luxurious. The view is great. Valet parking was very helpful. The breakfast had a large variety. The only thing lacking is a pool. However, the Hilton across the street is affiliated with Double Tree and has a pool.

Hello Timothy! Thank you for choosing to stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton Milwaukee Downtown, and for the wonderful review! We are glad you were able to experience the stunning city views from our upper floors, our clean and comfortable guest rooms, and the fantastic service provided by our award-winning team. In addition, we are pleased you enjoyed our efficient valet service, and the great variety of breakfast items we offer in our convenient on-site restaurant, our Avenue Bar and Grill. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed that we don’t have a pool. However, we hope that in the warmer months you have the opportunity to enjoy our sundeck on our 2nd floor; it’s a nice outdoor oasis in the city! We hope to host you on future visits, and please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

I stayed here recently on a business trip to downtown Milwaukee. The Doubletree was nicely located for getting to and from the location of my appointments. Valet parking was convenient and prompt. The lobby was crowded when I arrived but even with many people ahead of me, the check-in process was fast, friendly and efficient. I was given a corner room based on my request for quiet and it did not disappoint. The room was clean and well organized and had ample workspace for tackling some work for the following morning. The beds were comfortable and the multiple pillow options were nice as well. Amenities in the room were also on par with more expensive hotels. I had drinks and appetizers in the hotel restaurant and found the prices to be reasonable and the service decent. We also had breakfast in the restaurant the following morning and the service was prompt and again reasonable prices for both the buffet and a la carte items. I travel to this area frequently and would dedinitely consider the Doubletree again.

Room Tip: If you are looking for quiet, corner rooms are nice as they are very far from the elevators and vend...

I recently got married (11/16/2013) and had a reception at the Hilton Doubletree, I would just like to say that the wedding coordinator Allan Fischer was absolutely AMAZING throughout the entire process.
Allan accommodated us so much and really helped with making everything affordable and simple as we both wanted.
We brought in our own decorations and left instructions for the staff and the staff followed everything and made our day truly special.
Our hotel room suite was amazing the complimentary buffet breakfast was more than I expected and hands down the best breakfast I've had at ANY hotel I've stayed in throughout my travel in the states.
My family and friends were blown away by the delicious dinner that was served everything from the fruit to the pot roast and chicken was fresh and kept everyone going back for more. I originally didn't want a big wedding I preferred to keep it simple and elope but this experience has completely changed my mind and I would definitely do it all over again. On behalf of the Griff/ Hicks family thank you to Allan and the staff at Doubletree for an exceptional experience I have and I will continue to recommend this facility for events to family and friends!

KEEP UP THE GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WORK!! :)

We spent a Friday night in Milwaukee. The Double Tree is located close to Marquette University and also downtown Milwaukee. Valet parking was convenient and quick. The room was very nice. We were upgraded to a corner room which was nice. Breakfast was included in the package we booked and was better then average. Staff was very friendy.

I've stayed at this hotel several times. I am always greeted promptly and checked in within minutes. The warm cookies don't hurt either. The fitness area has decent equipment, but is quite small and fills up quickly.
