Three lady friends and I visited Milwaukee for the Brewers Mini-Marathon. We chose the County Clare based on TA reviews--and it was a wonderful choice! We stayed in a king suite that had a sofa bed and there was plenty of room for all of us and our things. The bathroom was large with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Everything was super clean. I was impressed that liquid creamers were available for the in-room morning coffee! Wi-fi was free and that came in handy for keeping in touch with those back home. I'm always worried about bed comfort due to back issues, and I didn't have a bit of trouble.
We visited the bar/restaurant after our race and filled up on tasty Irish food/drink (Guinness!). The host was able to accommodate our group immediately even though we didn't have a reservation--I never saw anyone wait for long although the restaurant was crowded. Our waitress, Jenna, was adorable and helpful. We loved her suggestions.
We also visited the second morning for our complimentary breakfast that was also very tasty. The coffee was WONDERFUL (brewed in Wisconsin), some kind of fried potato cakes were worth the calories (a hint of onion), made-to-order omelets, irish soda bread, sausages, cereals, etc... Not a lot of choices, but very good.
It was great to not have to worry about parking--off-street parking was free. The location was within walking distance to the Art Museum and the shore. We had a storm the first morning and didn't manage to get up early enough the second, but the sunrise would be awesome over Lake Michigan just a short walk from the hotel. There was no fitness center, but many sidewalks plus the shoreline to walk or run along.
Feel free to send me any questions!
