“Great hotel near the airport!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Stayed here to ease the shock to the system of an early departure. Turned out to be a great idea and worth every penny spent.

Located less than five minutes from the airport, but never heard any airport or highway noise at any time.

While we didn't have enough time for breakfast in the morning because of our flight time, the food smells near the restaurant sure made me regret the press of time.

The MKE Hilton Garden Inn is a very clean hotel located close enough to the airport to make it convenient but far enough away that you don't hear airport noise. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a good selection of food and beer - and there were free cookies at check in!

My sisters and I stayed here recently while having to be near St. Luke's for an ill relative. While our reason for being there was stressful, our stay was anything but. Very efficient, kind staff who allowed me to call ahead from the hospital without my credit card handy and held the room until we could arrive. The room was spacious and clean, the hotel was easy to find and quiet considering being next to the airport.

Our dinner was excellent and service was quick. The only downside was the pricey breakfast buffet, a lot of food to choose from and very fresh, however I would have been happier to order off the menu a small portion of what I wanted.

I will recommend this hotel to others and it will be were I stay when I need to be around the airport.

I've stayed here twice when I was in the area on business - very clean, modern hotel and very convenient from the airport with a lot of nice restaurant choices nearby. I have stayed at other airport hotels in this area and this is the best.

There aren't that many choices for hotels in the South side of Milwaukee, so I chose to stay here, even though it was an airport hotel. The property is adjacent to the airport and has free parking, which is unique for cities. They were very friendly and welcoming when I entered to check-in.

The overall hotel condition was great. Fairly new or remodeled. Can't tell, but everything seems fresh.

Staying only one night, I did not get a chance to try every service at the hotel, but I did get a chance to run in the fitness center and then cool off in the pool. The fitness area had 3 treadmills in great condition and a stair master and a few other cardio machines. A full set of dumbells and one of those universal gym setups rounded it out. It was clean and well maintained. The pool was a modest sized pool and the spa was good enough for a handful of people.

The rooms were nice. HGI has these foam beds that I'm not a fan of, but they were in good shape. Aside from that, the bedding, desk, and TV condition was great.

Overall, a very solid place to stay for business or pleasure.

I'm glad you had a chance to visit our fitness center and check out our pool area. Hopefully next time you'll be able to enjoy some of our other amenities!

Thanks again for staying with us- we hope to see you again the next time you're in Milwaukee!

I was forced to stay a night in the Clarion down the road. (Work has a corp discount there). I checked myself out and immediately checked into the HGI.

What a difference! Friendly staff, super clean rooms, overall the facility sparkled.

Great hotel for business with free wifi throughout.

Would stay again.

Great place to stay. Very friendly staff, extremely attentive. Will definitely come back! I wish the lobby bar was open just a little bit later. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The beds were very firm. I didn't experience any noise from the airport, which was very nice.
