I visited Milwaukee for a weekend last week and was very happy I was able to find such a short-notice reservation (expedia happened to 'cancel' my previous reservation). Thankfully this hotel was much better situated in the city then the other hotel. Upon entering I was shocked by how nice the hotel design and layout was. The exterior didn't do it justice! Gorgeous lighting throughout and overall luxe design.
This Marriott location is perfectly located in downtown Milwaukee and a few short blocks from Third Ward. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. One thing we noticed right away was how hospitable the staff was. From the doormen, valet, hotel concierge and front desk staff. The indoor pool was a refereshing way after a long day of walking/touring the city. Small, but still, I'll take any pool in the summer!
Milioke is the adjoining restaurant bar. I highly suggest going there for a quick cocktail before heading out at night, or even a bloody mary to get you going in the AM ;)
Next Milwaukee trip I take I'll only stay at this Marriott. Loved it!
