We loved the suite we stayed in. It was very charming and it felt like home. The service we received was wonderful. We ended up staying at the Knickerbocker longer than planned because we loved it so much!

Our bed was old and lumpy, carpet was stained, room was over priced. Staff was excellent. I would never pay that much to stay here again. Serious updates are needed. The hotel has excellent character and the staff are top notch. Rooms are terrible

Decent hotel staff could be more friendly and when we got a parking pass on their recommendation we never had a need for it. Cool atmosphere and nice kitchen in the room but really need to be nice to your customers.

I stayed here with my girlfriend and we thought the hotel had tons of character given the historic decor. We also ate at the hotel restaurant and had a great meal followed by live music. The only drawback was that we got there around 5 PM and there was no parking as it's limited. So we had to park on... More

Beautiful little "apartment". Super comfy bed! Loved having the mini kitchen, complete with a 4 burner gas stove & oven. Very clean. Friendly staff. Would definitely recommend it. Elegant without being over the top.

Nice atmosphere for drinks, dinner, lunch and brunch. While I live in Milwaukee and have not stayed there friends have and really like it. The food is really good and I recommend it for a more upscale experience.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Knickerbocker this past weekend. It was the perfect way to finish off a beautiful wedding at the Pritzlaff. The staff checked us in quickly prior to heading to the wedding. The young lady at the front desk was friendly and accommodating with all the questions I ask. We were on the top... More

I reserved 3 rooms for a family wedding in the area. Despite confirming a reservation(by phone) I made months earlier, we were still given 3 rooms with one bed each. When I explained I needed 2 rooms with 2 beds, I was told that I had been "misinformed" with a 'take-it or leave-it" attitude. This also happened to friends of... More

This hotel was horrible. Odd smell throughout. Old, worn-out rooms. Mildewy. I'm not sure the sheets were clean. Pillows were old. Furnishings were old world odd. Bathroom was tiny. It was depressing. I hated this place. Motel 6 would be a step up.

This old place is downtown, right on the lake, next to a park and a few blocks from a market. I stayed for business. Nice change to the typical business hotel. Full kitchen, big rooms, radiator heaters. Not the most convenient place, but worth the extra effort. Check out the hidden compartments inside the doors of each room. I believe... More
