I am a Milwaukee area resident who spent the weekend at the hotel with my guest from Washington D.C. Both myself and my guest were extremely impressed with the excellent location and convenience for walking to local attractions....I parked my car in the parking garage and didn't have to use it while we explored lots of stuff within walking distance, including the Milwaukee Art Museum, Riverwalk, 3rd Ward, Milwaukee Public Museum, etc. The location is walkable from the Amtrak station, as well.
The room was beautiful... really high ceilings (like maybe 14'?) and the wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river.....
The front desk staff were accommodating to my guests' early arrival and he was able to check in early. (Thanks, Tracy!)
Added bonuses that help with the travel budget include the daily breakfast that has tons to choose from (scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, make your own waffles, cold cereal, fruit, yogurt, etc.).
We plan to repeat our visit in the summer, when there is more going on along the river!
