“Great Hotel, Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This newly remodeled hotel is in a building that is on the National Register of Historical Landmarks. The building is beautiful. I had a corner room with two sets of windows. The ceilings were over 10 feet tall, (I was on the first floor) The staff was very friendly and polite. The breakfast was made to order and very delicious. Since I am a Hilton Gold Card member my breakfast was complimentary. Otherwise it is $10 which is very reasonable for downtown. Many downtown shops, restaurants and other historic buildings are very close by. The Third Ward is within 5 minutes walking distance. Many restaurants and shops are located there.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for corner room on first floor.

Very old building but updated, very beautiful. Large rooms with modern amenities, lots to do within walking distance of hotel especially the Third Ward area which has lots of shops, restaurants and brewpubs. Downtown area has several great old buildings to view and tour. Freeway easily assessable from hotel

Hilton has a charm here in Milwaukee! The Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Milwaukee is in a renovated old building which has so much character, you are swept away the minute you walk in the door. From the majestic staircase to the ornate railings, you get the feeling you are someplace special. Yet they have modern facilities and amenities and the housekeeping is immaculate. I would list pro's and cons but there are not any cons. We received top-notch customer care from the moment we made the reservation all the way through until check-out. So here's some things we especially appreciated:
*The room was spacious, well equipped and super clean. The bed and pillows felt luxurious!
*The property is unique, not a "cookie-cutter" chain hotel
*The location is very convenient to anything in the downtown area (walking distance to most attractions including Summerfest Grounds) - but they do have a free shuttle to area locations also.
*Breakfast was not included in the rate, but the buffet breakfast was only $9.95pp (we have paid well over $15 for similar buffets at other hotels). The buffet was excellent and included both cooked to order eggs and a variety of bagels, muffins, cereals, etc...very plentiful and good!
If you have the opportunity to stay here, take it, you won't be disappointed!

Hotel was nice and clean. Staff was friendly. Only issues I had were trying to get a good internet connection and not being able to work the TV with the remote. Breakfast was very good. The location of this hotel is very close to where I work so it is very convienent.

We stayed for one night and it was great. Perfect location to walk to almost anything downtown. Super clean and a great old building. High ceiling, old mantle, huge windows. The only negative is that there is no attached parking garage. There is one close but we used the valet ($24 for overnight). We would absolutely stay there again. We didn't notice that he beds had the dial to adjust the firmness of the beds like most HGI's do and it's downtown so it only gets so quiet outside.

The hotel is beautiful and quiet, right down town. But the staff is lacking. Forgot to provide new towels and tidy up until we asked. Poor service at check in. Bell hop sat at the door while we emptied car of baggage in the rain. Then wanted to carry it up.

Thank you for your feedback about your experience with us. We are glad you enjoyed the hotel's structure and history, I am however, sorry we fell below your expectations on the lack of help with the loading and unloading of your luggage, the lack of customer service during your check in and the service you received from our housekeeping department. Your feedback and comments help us achieve the best customer service and accommodation experience you deserve and will be shared with management and team members for appropriate action. We hope you will visit us again when you are in the Milwaukee area.
