The Residence Inn is a downtown Milwaukee hotel with kitchen facilities. Parking is a bit of a hassle as you pay to park underground in an attached building which you enter around the corner. Fortunately, you can access your room without going outside, but it requires two elevator rides and a bit of an excursion. The beds are okay, the design could be called "American spare," and the facilities do not aspire to be anything more then mediocre. This will fit most folks needs. Some of the rooms are "strange," where empty space yearns for some piece of furniture. However, if you like echoes, this will be perfect for you. The bathrooms are surprisingly small compared to the size of the sleeping room, and the sink sits outside the bathroom. Housekeeping needs a nudge once in a while and thus, be cognizant of the cleanliness of your room and whether towels, soaps, coffee etc. have been replaced. While the work out facility at this Residence Inn had the typical few treadmills and ellipticals, there were no paper towels in the bathroom to wipe down the machines. There was some kind of spray there one day, and I used a towel to clean, but the spray was missing the other days and I wished I wore a Hazmat suit. However, if you want a kitchen and desire to be downtown, the Residence Inn is not too bad.
