“Nice but Pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We stayed here for one night during a "holiday" trip to Wisconsin. The hotel is a typical "new build" Hilton Garden Inn, with nice amenities and very clean. The staff really makes this hotel. Everyone we met could not have been nicer. After working half a day and then flying for several hours, this was very much appreciated. Despite being right next to the airport, and on a very busy street, it was quiet. Pick-up service from the airport was quick and efficient. Overall it was a very nice one-night stay. I would probably stay here again, but would look a little closer at the price. I have never paid this much to stay at a Garden Inn and usually pay less to stay at a full-service Hilton.

Room Tip: If you want a more quiet location, ask for a south-facing room.

We stayed at this property for a weekend trip to Milwaukee. The accomodations were very nice and the staff treated us extremely well. Breakfast was very good and cooked to order food mixed with buffet offerings was quick and good. We will stay here again when we visit Milwaukee.

I stayed on a last minute award stay for a memorial service over Thanksgiving - the staff could not have been more accomodating for my family. I was travelling with my wife and 5 children, We got there and got settled in by the very hospitable front desk - we were able to get the kids some hot cocoas and a cookie right at the desk while I checked in it was an awesome welcoming experience. The rooms exceeded our expectations and provided a great night's rest and recharge for our trip. The room was amazingly quiet with outside windows that faced a runway or taxiway at the airport that was a nice surprise. The breakfast buffet was well worth the surcharge with the room and the kids loved it - I used the fitness center with my two oldest teens and it was very well equipped, we only wish we had brought swimsuits because the pool looked great too. The staff, accomodations and food were all top rate.

Room Tip: Higher floors always better, half of us were on 3 - top floor and the other half on two - two said t...

Just a short 5 minute shuttle ride to the airport, this Garden Inn was great. Room and staff were very good. Since there are no restaurants within walking distance, they offer free shuttle service to/from nearby restaurants. I will stay here again.

Arrived around 1am and decided to stay near the airport and start our drive after some sleep. Chose this hotel due to the Hilton name and location near the airport. The shuttle picked us up within minutes of getting outside of the airport. The driver was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is less than a mile from the airport so we were checking in within 30 minutes of landing. The front desk staff was friendly and the hotel was very very clean and well maintained. Our room was a typical room, and it was also very clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable. We ate breakfast at the hotel before we checked out. The buffet provided a nice selection with plenty of food. You could choose cooked to order items. The breakfast staff was very friendly as well. We use the shuttle in the morning to get us back to the airport to pick up a rental car. The morning shuttle driver was also very friendly and helpful. Just a great experience overall !! Next time we are in the area, we would definitely stay here again.

Had to stay here for business. My first week with them was fantastic. They have a very friendly and helpful staff. They strive to make sure you have an at home experience while you are there. The service was so good I decided to stay with them for the remainder of my 7 week business trip. When I arrived on Monday they greeted me by name and had my key ready. When I leave on Friday early morning or afternoon they wish me a safe trip and a relaxing weekend. The bar atmosphere is very friendly and I have met many nice people and made some friends. They have a great outside seating area that always has the fire pit burning. I wanted to entertain guests and they had several suggestions and even made ticket reservations for me. To top all of our it off the hotel to is up to date and very modern looking.

Probably a stretch to rate the Hilton Garden Inn at MKE airport one of the best hotels in all of Milwaukee, but it is indeed a great MKE airport option. At AAA rate of $76/night, chose this hotel for the price and to garner HHonors points. But there's more here: the HGI MKE airport is a modern/update hotel w/the usuall HGI rooms and amenities. Surprisingly, didn't hear any MKE airport runway noise resulting in a resultful sleep and an early morning wake up call to catch shuttle to airport and fly out.
