I visited Milwaukee in early July for a conference. The hotel was only about 20 minutes from the airport and easy to find. The staff greeted us as soon as we walked in with a smile and one of their famous warm chocolate cookies. Every time I went to the front desk to ask a question, the staff were more than willing to help out, make any suggestions, or clear up any issues. The housekeeping staff were always friendly and said hello, with a smile, when I walked by them.
There was a 24 hour small grocery store and Dunkin Donuts across the street. There is also a Starbucks one block east of the hotel as well. There is also two pizza places down the street that are both open until 3 am. The River Walk is within a few blocks of the hotel. That was nice that we did not have to drive the car to get everywhere. If you do need to go somewhere you can't walk to, there is a courtesy shuttle as well.
There is not a pool at this location, but there is a very nice outside patio bar in the location where the pool used to be.
I would stay in this location again and would recommend this hotel for anyone needing to stay near the downtown area.
