My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center for three nights while attending a conference at the Pioneer Center. In general, it was a good experience with some major frustrations. Pluses: easy access via skywalk to convention center, best tub I've had in a hotel in a long, long time: very deep, wide and sloped in the back for nice resting; chair with footstool, comfortable bed; staff with a great attitude and so helpful; daily USA News; gift shop well equipped; older rehabed hotel with beautiful architecture inside; heating good; furnishings attractive; carpet new; decent-sized garbage pails in the room; room service was good, price reasonable, large servings.
Negatives: totally inadequate internet: impossible to access from the room and cost was $3/hour; business center with two computers using Windows XP (2 generations old) so difficult to download gmail emails with more than 2 in the queue, only two chairs in the business ctr, computers repeatedly crashed; internet was free in the business center, but you must swipe your credit card and the outside company providing the service puts a $20 hold on your account each time you check email! The hotel is not handicapped accessible; you must go up two short sets of three steps to go to any of the restaurants or the gift shop. No air vent in the bathroom. No minibar or refrigerator in the room; the safe is in a dark closet with a light you turn on, but the bulb is a low wattage so it's difficult to see; no bath gel in the bathroom.
