It is a very nice hotel and our room was huge. The room was tired and needs updating. The view was spectacular and the location perfect. The young man who checked us in was very nice and helpful. The Nick restaurant had excellent food at a very reasonable price. We would stay again if the opportunity presents itself.
I booked this hotel for a weekend stay. I saw that there were some bad reviews, but took them with a grain of salt due to the low price and nothing too alarming in regards to cleanliness. The hotel itself is very beautiful. When you step into the lobby, you feel as though you are transported back in time. Our room was clean and large with a kitchenette, small dining table and desk/work area. The most cool thing about the hotels were the doors to the rooms, which opened both ways for back in the day when hotels offered dry cleaning services for guests. The location of the hotel is excellent, close to many attractions, shopping areas and restaurants. Unfortunately, this is where the good ended. Knickerbocker On the Lake does offer $18 a night parking, but they do not forewarn guest that parking is very limited. When I arrived to check in at 5:45pm on a Friday, I was told that there were no spots left and that I would need to find street parking. I do not mind street parking, but for overnight parking you need to call your vehicle into the city and between the hours of 7am and 7pm there is a 2 hour parking limit. The young man who checked me in and gave me the parking info did not seem to care or understand that the parking situation is inconvenient for anyone staying a weekend at the hotel. He was all around unhelpful and seemed to not want to be there. The second staff member we encountered was Jackie, who was at the front desk on Saturday and Sunday of my stay. As with the first front desk employee, Jackie was unhelpful. Additionally, Jackie's appearance was incredibly unprofessional; poorly dyed blue hair and multiple rings through her nose. I might have been able to get past Jackie's unprofessional appearance if it wasn't for her smug attitude, lies and lack of customer service skills. She is not the face/person that I would choose to be at the front desk of a hotel, especially a historic one like this. This was strike two against Knickerbocker On the Lake. The rotten egg stinking up this establishment seems to be general manager Larry Robe. If you take a few minutes to look at the reviews, you can see that many people have had negative run-ins with Larry Robe and I wish I would have paid attention to these reviews before I stayed at this hotel. Larry is rude, patronizing and disrespectful. He has no sense of customer service, nor does he seem to have any management skills. Unfortunately, Knickerbocker On the Lake is independent and not associate with any other hotels, including other Knickerbocker locations (Chicago and NYC), so there is no one to keep Larry in check. This seems to have resulted in Larry abusing his power as general manager and has given him free reign to harass guests. It is my opinion that Larry Robe should not be the general manager of Knickerbocker On the Lake, or any establishment for that matter, and would really benefit from some customer service and management training. Overall, my advisement would be to not stay in this hotel and spend your money elsewhere. The staff is rude, unhelpful and patronizing. All around, the Knickerbocker On the Lake seems to have many poor and sketchy business practices. I would suggest looking elsewhere for logging in the Milwaukee area. Adding photos of the inside of my hotel room, proving that I did stay in this establishment.…
The hotel was stunning, so much history intact! We loved our old fashioned door with real key. The room was clean and spacious. Finally, the location was perfect! A close uber ride to so many great breweries and restaurants!
The hotel is so historic and is an experience for sure. The lake view suites have an amazing view of Lake Michigan. There is dated thick brown carpet in the room and it was not in the best shape. It took away from the majestic feel of the hotel.
A very cool old style building with decor that looks like Gringotts bank from Harry Potter! The rooms are dated, but in a quaint way, and very clean. The prices are reasonable for the rooms. They have a parking lot, but they charge you $18 a night to use it. Street parking otherwise is very limited.
