“What a Deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We took a last minute weekend trip to the Milwaukee area for a Zoo visit and were able to book this hotel for an awesome under $100 deal on Hotwire.com
The Crowne Plaza was super clean, modern, and comfortable. The only reason I did not rate it as a 5 star was because of the loud hallway noise and door slamming that could be heard from inside the room.
An unexpected perk was the free shuttle that you could use to go almost anywhere in the area with only a 30 minute advance booking time. We used it to go to Eddie Martini's Steakhouse and the Milwaukee Zoo.
Also, this hotel is very close to the Mayfair Mall which has excellent shopping and restaurants.

Nice place, nice staff, and easy to find location! Like the separate shower and tub...had not stayed at a Crown Plaza in years and was pleasantly surprised! Breakfast not bad either....only negative was hearing the doors closing of other guests.

We chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and its convenient location. The hotel lobby is spacious and welcoming. The staff were able to accomodate us with an early check in and our room was clean and quiet. We took advantage of the restaurant and the excellent hot tub and pool. The staff was prompt and helpful. The rates online were also very competitive. The rooms are small (two queen beds), which was ok for us since the acommodations were comfortable. The hotel is also a short drive from the mall and many local restaurants.

I was on a business trip, and stayed at the Crown Plaza, Milwaukee West. This hotel does seem to cater the business person, and they do it well. My room was a good size, had ample outlets (always a plus!), and a nice desk. They even provide a curtain clip to make sure any unwanted street light stays out.

In the bathroom there is a large walk in shower, but no tub. There is even a lighted make-up mirror, and the hair dryer provided is not your general wimpy hotel hair dryer. It had lots of power.

My only negative is the lack of a refrigerator. Other than that, this hotel had everything I could ask for.

Nice place. Construction in the area takes a little away from the outside ambiance but inside is very well decorated and comfortable. Bar in hotel is nice and staffed well. Restaurant is nice. I wish we had stayed in the hotel for supper. The room was very nice and clean. The bathroom was spacious with just a shower as verses tub/shower. TV was nice sized. Desk in room was good for working on computer. Looking forward to going back. Located near plenty of local restaurants and other entertainment.

My husband I stayed at this Crowne Plaza when my mother was having hip replacement surgery at Froedtert Hospital. The hospital rate made this hotel very affordable. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we received an unasked for upgrade to the Executive floor where we enjoyed the relaxing lounge while having a very nice hot breakfast and snacks in the evening. The hotel was so conveniently placed near the hospital center even with the road construction going on near by. We also enjoyed the restaurant located in the hotel which had an interesting menu.

Our bed was very comfortable and the bedding was excellent.

Room Tip: The rooms facing north on the higher floors have a wonderful nighttime view.

First off, I got this hotel for a pretty smoking' internet deal ($49/night). And for $49 a night, my expectations were only that the hotel be reasonably clean and quiet. I was pleasantly surprised when the hotel exceeded my expectations. It turned out to be a great value for my money.

The hotel is clean and well appointed, and the staff at the front desk were very pleasant and accommodating. The rooms were also clean and well-maintained, and overall the hotel was very quiet at night. The internet is free, though a little sketchy if you are trying to stream something, but otherwise was fine. The biggest problem I had was with the pillows (I hate feather pillows with a passion), but that's a minor issue. The room service menu was decent and did enjoy everything that I ordered from the restaurant - the sautéed chicken had a really fantastic lemon cream sauce - very tasty.

As a plus, there was a lot of parking available and it was free (I had a car). The other nice feature is the shuttle which will take you wherever you would like to go (within a 5 mile or so radius of the hotel). It's also relatively close to lots of things (hospital, restaurants, movie theater, etc).

Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would absolutely stay here again…even without any great internet deal, the money would be well spent.
