Stayed here due to a good deal on Hotwire- it's a classy art deco hotel that was decorated for the Holidays with a great tree. We even saw Santa on the way out. On the Marquette campus, walking distance to the Pabst Mansion. Free parking which we used with no problems. The neighborhood was fine during daylight but I would not walk around much at night.
The free shuttle was a great perk- got us to a nice dinner and our show at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. The ride to dinner was a little longer but we were in no hurry and it was neat to see the city lights. Staff suggested a steakhouse we never would have tried- Butch's Old casino steakhouse- so worth it!
Great bar in the hotel. Workout room in the basement was adequate- I used the stationary bike with no problems.
Our room was small, but clean and well laid out- no quibble there for the price. Bed was very comfy. My only complaint was it was an adjoining room, so we were awoken early by two men talking about their travel plans. When I mentioned this at checkout the staff person stated there are a few rooms like that, and hoped we would return.
