“Fabulous Location for Riverside Theatre and Pabst Theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stayed at this newly redecorated hotel that was a great location for attending a concert at The Riverside Theatre. We stayed in a third floor suite that was spacious, nicely decorated, and immaculate. The hotel has a very well-equipped gym and a complimentary breakfast that has something for everyone--oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, fruit, eggs, waffles, French toast--and a very helpful attendant who would get anything else you needed. The only reason I give this hotel a 4 instead of 5 stars is because our suite had only one small window that was located in the bedroom. (Funny, another comment is small room with large windows). We found the bed comfortable and the room very quiet. Parking was on your own in a garage down the street at 15.00 a day or across the street for 12.00 a day if you didn't take your car out.

I love this place. Breakfast is very good with many choices to choose from, a very clean room, convenient location, and the Front Desk lady in the morning made me feel at home and loved. She was very helpful, answered all my questions, and she even gave me a hug when I checked out.

The Fairfield builds simple elegance and convenience into this hotel. The rooms are small and basic, but very modern and great looking. They also have a free breakfast bar with all the trimmings. The wireless signal is strong everywhere in the hotel, so it is easy to get things done. Although positioned on a busy downtown street, the noise level is very low. The best thing about the hotel is its convenience to local shopping and the convention center.

Did an overnight in Milwaukee and book a room here for one night. Easy to find, great location with many dining options close by. Very small room with big windows. Clean bathroom. Probably would opt for a different hotel next time because of the size of the room.

I stayed at this property while attending a large convention. It is only a block away from the Convention Center which was nice. Another thing that was a plus is that there is a Walgreens across the street. Very convenient to access personal items that you may have forgotten to pack. There is also a shopping area with a food court and an Applebees across the street. The room was nice, very comfortable beds and was kept clean during my stay.

The negatives were that you hear all of the street noise, so keep this in mind if you are a light sleeper. Also, there are people who approach you outside the hotel that want money, cigarettes and I did not feel too comfortable walking alone after dark.

I stayed at this hotel last Friday for Irish Fest. The room itself was beautiful. The bed very comfortable. It was quiet, clean and very nice. However, the staff was nice but not very helpful. I asked twice for an explanation on where to park my car and the exact quote was "go right and then right again" I asked if there was a sign she said no. I ended up parking in a milwaukee lot ... following the right and right again directions and paid he 15 dollar fee to the hotel and then 12 to the city of Milwaukee. I then asked how would i walk to Irish Fest and she pointed through the wall behind her and shrugged. No shuttle, no map, no actual direction. I ended up taking a cab. It was a lot of money for a short stay and very little extra. I would not stay again. I would either spend a little more for serice or a lot less for a ok room.

Was in town for the German Fest. This is an older building and was recently remodeled. The atmosphere is up-to-date, with some of the original decorative features of the building preserved. The staff was excellent. I had some car trouble and they let me stay parked in front of the hotel until help came to jump my battery. Parking is easy, with in/out privileges at the lot just down the block. Great location. The breakfast had a wide variety of choices, although I don't really like eating off disposable plates and eating utensils. The room was fine. Nice view of 3rd Street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing 3rd St.
