“So Glad We Chose To Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

After searching for a hotel room in Milwaukee suitable for me, my husband, and our toddler, we landed at the Plaza, and I am so thankful we found this gem. First, the hotel is near everything. We walked to the museums, the parks, the river walk, and never had to move our car from the lot.

The building is beautiful and historic. There is not an elevator, nor a bellhop (as far as I could tell), so do prepare to carry your luggage up the stairs. Check in was efficient and they also explained the parking. There are not vending machines and EVERYTHING (soda, candy, etc.) that they sell at the front desk is overpriced, so bring your own snacks for the room.

The room itself was great. It wasn't huge, but it had a comfortable king size bed, a full kitchen, a small dining table, and a clean bathroom--what more can you ask for. Plus, the price was excellent compared to the other hotels in the area.

Do yourself a favor and be sure to try breakfast in the hotel's cafe. They should give you a coupon at check in.

All in all. It was a nice stay in a great location.

My sister, husband and I stayed here on a sightseeing tour of mke. It has a great cafe for breakfast but it wasn't really located near the tourist areas. Everything was a bit of a walk. Good value. Room was spacious and clean. Nice, historic building

Stayed at the Plaza Hotel again this year for Summerfest and am never disappointed. The room was perfect and the location was close to everything. When we checked in the parking was all gone, but as soon as something had freed up, they contacted us right away and we were able to move into a secured lot. The front desk was also very courteous. Although we didn't eat at the cafe this year, I've eaten there other times and it's always been good. We'll be back again next year.

Very clean. Good location in nice neighborhood. Not in the main downtown area. Charming older building....no elevators, could be a problem for some, but would not stop me from going back. Great breakfast at the cafe, sit outside if you can. Grocery store behind hotel. Very convenient.

Was impressed with room size as well as accomidations that came along with the room. Recommend this for a more than a night stay room. Having a full kitchen available at your fingertips is nice! Also the walk downtown is a breeze and great spot felt safe in this part of town!
