We have stayed twice at this new downtown hotel property. It is exquisitely designed in a contemporary, yet historical manner creating a very unique, comfortable setting. It is located on a very popular area of the city (MIlwaukee Street and Wisconsin Avenue.) so guests have ready access to walk to all of the entertainment and restaurants. It is also a short walk (15 minutes) to the Lake Front for Museums and exercise, experiencing beautiful vistas. The Milwaukee River walk is two/three blocks west of the property.
The guest rooms are reasonable in size and well appointed with very comfortable beds, great bathroom amenities and business work space It would be great if they had in room refrigerators and they have single cup coffee makers that inevitably only have one regular coffee pod. However they are happy to quickly provide more.
The property has a fairly comprehensive fitness facility that provides the opportunity to get a great work out while traveling. There is a pool as well, which we didn't have time to use.
The property provide complementary coffee in the restaurant lobby area that is "real coffee"!!
Speaking of the restaurant, they have a great selection of Wisconsin craft beers and other Wisconsin/MIlwaukee food specialties. The food and service when we were there was very good.
I highly recommend this property for a romantic get away, business meeting or special occasion. I am sure that bring kids would be doable, but I think there may be other places more conducive.
Valet parking is available and expensive, however, you can self park across the street in a covered lot for half the price and the hotel is kind enough to tell you about it. The door personnel are outstanding. Overall, it appears that every one of the staff enjoys working at the property.
We'll be back.
