“Excellent stay in Milwaukee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn at the Milwaukee airport for a weekend stay. The hotel is not more than 5 minutes from the rental car facility at the airport. Easy to find. Almost in a residential area next to the airport. The location was very centrally located for visiting downtown Milwaukee or areas outside of the local area.

We had an early morning arrival and the desk clerk was very personable. She was able to get us into our room around 9:00am which really helped our visit. We had a rate that included breakfast.

The room was pretty standard for HGI, but the common areas were very, very nice. Starbucks coffee was available in the lobby. They had a gas fire pit outside with was very nice. Our room was clean and comfortable. I really like the Keurig’s that HGI’s now have in the rooms.

Breakfast was also very good. They had cooked to order entrée’s along with a wide selection of fruits, pastires, and cereals. The service was excellent.

Check out took at least 15 seconds and we were back at the airport going thru security no more than 10 minutes after leaving our room. Overall an excellent place to stay in Milwaukee.

Room Tip: High rooms away from elevator are quieter

Enjoyed my stay here a night before an early flight out of MKE. The staff that checked me in was spectacular and the hotel was surprisingly quiet for being next to the airport. The only reason I gave this 'Very Good' was due to the fact Garden Inns have begun to use select your comfort beds. Seems like a great idea but I don't think the beds do anything when switching from soft to firm. They are also unbelievably hard even when the bed is set to the soft setting. Don't even thinking about jumping on these beds, you may sprain your ankle. If you enjoy rough beds then by all means this is the perfect spot for any travelers.

Dear mleslie89,

We really appreciate your honest-constructive feedback. Your mentioned how quite our property is, especially being 1/2 mile away from Mitchell International. Our property was constructed with extra soundproofing materials to avoid any guest or sound disturbances. It really has proven to be a benefit to our entire property.

I'm truly sorry that you did not find the Garden Sleep System Bed adequate for your comfort level. I will make sure to bring your concerns to the Brand's attention.

My husband and I stayed here for a wedding, and then flew out the next day. All areas of this hotel were exceptional (and I tend to be a harsh hotel critic!).

When we arrived, we noticed appetizers set up by the front desk for what appeared to be a complimentary happy hour. (We didn't partake in this, however, so I'm not sure if it was.) Upon checking in, we were asked which floor we preferred, and we took the first, since they said it would be convenient after the reception. The front desk staff was very hospitable and accommodating.

Our room was clean and comfortable. (Big plus for having a white duvet!) The bathroom had Neutrogena products and a glass shower stall. Our room also had a fridge, microwave, and Keurig coffee maker. All in all, very nice.

The reception was held in the banquet hall adjacent to the bar. Everything was lovely. Also, we didn't hear any noise in the halls after the reception ended, which hasn't always been the case in other hotels.

In the morning, we had a breakfast made to order which was part of our purchased package. (I had french toast with strawberries and whipped cream; omelettes, breakfast meats, and potatoes were also available. ) The corresponding buffet had delicious pastries and fresh fruit. Additionally, by the front desk was a self serve coffee kiosk with Starbucks coffee.

All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel. The shuttle took us to the airport the next morning, and it was very convenient.

This review is for the Milwaukee Airport location. We stayed here after a late flight since it was close to the airport. Quick check in and helpful desk staff who recognized my Hilton rewards registration. The hotel has a couple freezers of microwaveable food next to the desk, probably the best you can do at 1 am. The desk person suggested we take the silverware from the breakfast area, which was forward thinking on his part.

The room was excellent, almost brand new. Even though you are near the airport, you can’t hear any of the noise. The bed was comfortable, we slept very well. The only thing to be aware of is that this location does not offer a free breakfast, but since the room price was excellent, I am still giving it five dots for value. We didn’t try the business center or pool so we can’t comment. Overall, excellent experience. We will stay again the next time we go to Milwaukee.

Our VDD/GNA dog group had our National Meeting here this past weekend and the service and hospitality was the best. The people went out of their way to be courteous to us and our dogs. This was the most friendly and enjoyable stay that I have experienced anywhere. The service was great the food was excellent and I highly recommend this fine place. Beds were the best ever, and housecleaning does an excellent job

Tripadvisor's high marks for this Milwaukee gem brought my wife, daughter and son-in-law and I to the doors of this great hotel to enjoy a weekend in Milwaukee. What makes this Hotel great is not the well appointed rooms, the spacious and comfortable communal-style renovated lobby, the comfortable bedding, etc.... but the exceptional Hospitality and the energetic, friendly, caring staff! They completely understand that it matters more how you make people feel....well, we all felt home and part of this great group. One could spend a great more and receive far less experience at many great hotels but we are fans of this well managed and thoughtful crew and their hotel. They go the extra mile. We'll be back. So should you.

This property is done very well. From the shuttle pick up at the airport to the great dinner and breakfast it was very good. The staff really help make this place a great place to stay. The room was quiet and clean. The fan could run constantly if needed and everything worked from the wifi to the amenities. Thanks again and I'll be back!
