This was a pretty good hotel. I went to celebrate a friend's 30th golden birthday and had a blast. The room was pretty decent, clean, great to relax. The bathroom didn't have a fan for post shower steam clear out. There was only one window far off in the corner of a very long room that didn't really give good light. The bed was great for sleeping though, really comfy. It was surprisingly warm in the room even though I set the heat down to 65 (the lowest setting) to even it out, it seemed that didn't do much of anything. You still woke up pretty sweaty. I went over a weird Milwaukee December heat wave, so maybe that had something to do with it, but still, you would think the temperature gauge would help.
You can hear everything that transpires in the halls. I know this because there was a cheerleading competition happening and the hotel was full of 12 -14 year old cheerleader girls with very giggly squeaky voices who loved to laugh.
The surrounding neighborhood was downtown which doesn't get a ton of young people action. By young I mean under 35 or 40. So if you're looking to hang out in that neighborhood on a hot and happening weekend, skip it. If you just want to hang out close to downtown shops and views and retire early, it's great. Maybe for a family oriented vacation.
I would stay here again if this was closer to a more nightlife.
