This is a beautiful hotel, filled with the charms of another age. The beds and linens are heavenly and definitely helped the quality of our sleep. We were on the eleventh floor and heard nothing. We ate at the cafe for breakfast...delicious. And had a drink by the magnificent fireplace. But maybe the real story is the staff here. They... More

This hotel is perfect if you're spending the weekend in Milwaukee. It's walking distance to the art museum or summerfest grounds. The hotel itself is the best in the area. Staff, accommodations and restaurants are top notch. ations

We typically wouldn't stay at a hotel in our own home city, but we had a great deal for their 80th anniversary. Gallery night was going on so we checked out some of the beautiful paintings of the painter in residence. (His name slips my mind.) The room was great, and so were the staff. If you have the chance... More

The architecture alone is a wonderful reason to visit. The staff was professional and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, one of the top three hotels I have ever stayed at with regard to comfort in the beds. The place was quiet. Classy lounge where you can relax with a cocktail or decent beer. There were three wonderful... More

Rooftop lounge was great and rooms were big. Loved the multiple entrances for the hotel. We stayed here for summer fest and it was a very close walk to there. Close to hard rock cafè. Gift shop was lacking but spa was wonderful. Loved the bar in the lobby as well as the breakfast cafè.
