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.
