I stayed at this hotel for two nights while I was in Milwaukee for the UFC Live event. First off: the place looks great; art deco style, lots of remodeling. Secondly the service was outstanding. The drivers for the free shuttle were courteous and on-time. By the way: the shuttle is free so if you want to see downtown but don't want to fork over another hundred bucks or so then do as I did and stay here.
The food that I ordered through room service wasn't the greatest and was overpriced in my opinion. That's really the only bad thing I have to say about the place except for the fact that the walls are thin and if you're a light sleeper then you might want to talk to the management beforehand. The room was clean however the coffee maker still had the previous customer's instant coffee bag in it. Wasn't a deal breaker as I'm not a huge fan of coffee anyway.
Free wireless is a plus. While my laptop was working (had some Vista bug/glitch) the speed was great.
Nearby is the Rave/Eagle's Ballroom, the Pabst Mansion, Marquette University, and a couple diners. Downtown is walkable or, like I said, you can take the shuttle. One other nice thing was that parking was free at the hotel.
I would definitely stay here again.
