“Nice hotel. Good deal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Made reservations a few days before arrival on a spontaneous trip to Milwaukee. Close to a few parks and very easy to get to. Staff was nice. A good deal compared to other hotels in the area. Bed was comfy. Definitely would go back.

Glad your spontaneous trip to Milwaukee lead you to our unique Hotel!

Our staff, the access to all in-and-around Glendale and Milwaukee, and our recent enhancements including bedding and linens? All items that we are VERY proud of here!

Hope to welcome you back again!

Belated thanks for your comments!

As the GM for the Hotel and our noted restaurant, The Anchorage, it is always warming to read adjectives like "perfect", "awesome", “outstanding” and "friendly" affixed to descriptions of our hotel, our restaurant, and our staff! That is what we all collectively strive for here!

The Anchorage also has its own dedicated Trip Advisor listing for your direct comments on both staff and quality as well.

Glad we made for an excellent weekend, and we hope to welcome you back again!

Our room had a nice view of the river, and staff are efficient and friendly. But the hotel seems 'tired' - one small, slow elevator for the whole property, bathroom toilet extremely noisy and slow-filling, coffee maker that didn't work, sagging mattress and pillows, dresser with a drawer stuck shut, chipping paint and wood trip, etc. Fix it up and it could be much nicer.

I recently hosted a "Surprise Birthday" Party for my son's 50th birthday in the Anchorage Restaurant. Chef Rick knocked us out with the amazing delicious hors d'oeuvres and ala carte dinner selections. I'm hard pressed to decide if this is a excellent hotel with an outstanding restaurant or visa versa. It was like a catered dinner a home.
.
My wife dealt with Karen the Meeting Coordinator to insure the "Surprise" etc., the Bar Room hostess, Sandy, was very gracious, the wait staff was terrific, the cuisine was well presented and out of sight. We stay there every time we're in Milwaukee.

We stay at the Milwaukee River Hilton

Thanks for your comments as they related to the surprise party you hosted with us!

We are naturally very proud of the service, the quality, and the staff members associated with our signature restaurant, The Anchorage! (They do have their own dedicated Trip Advisor listing as well for your comments, which I’m sure will be greatly appreciated by those involved!)

Soon to celebrate a 40th anniversary, The Anchorage is well-known for not being your typical hotel restaurant. From the chefs in back to the servers / bartenders / caterers in front, I am glad to read that their combined efforts made for a very enjoyable event!

Please visit us again soon!

Was nice stay. Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Bar staff were nice. Breakfast was great. It was great having a van take you to your destination instead of paying for a taxi. Bed was very comfortable.

I stayed at the Hilton Milwaukee River for a business trip. The room was clean. Internet service was good. No appliances were available (microfridge, microwave). At $139 per night, I expected better. There was a nice patio on the back with a view of the Milwaukee River, although the river is not that scenic. The restaurant also had a nice view of the river. Breakfast was not included, but you could have a nice buffet for $14 in the restaurant. They serve cookies and lemonade to there customers in the evening for free. The hotel is right between the bad part of Milwaukee and the nicer area of Glendale. Go north for restaurants and shopping.

Whenever we travel to Milwaukee, Wi. we stay at this lovely hotel which is just north of the downtown area. The hotel is fantastic and the employees are the best at welcoming us during our stay. You also cannot beat the price nor the service. We will definitely stay again on our visit next year!

Room Tip: Nice view of the river.
