This hotel does not fit the "regular hotel" category. Beautiful Art Deco Style décor throughout. My room was a one bed queen room. Very spacious, divided into: entry hall/sitting area with TV, Keurig coffee maker and refrigerator; bedroom with queen bed and TV; and a very spacious bathroom with large whirlpool tub with all around support bars. Lot's of choices... More

The Art Deco decor, general layout and location were great. We had a very nice one night stay for our 48th anniversary. AC was ok but not quite up to the task of getting the temperature below 70. Fan in the bathroom was noisy and neither the wonderful tub or adequate shower had support bars. Mini-bar really well stocked. Keurig... More

From the lobby to the massive and elegant king suite, the Hotel Metro was, in a word, amazing. These folks have thought of everything that made my stay perfect. I only wish I had had the time to soak in the largest hotel bathtub I have ever seen. If staying in Milwaukee, look no further than this hotel.

Overpriced and needs revamping. For what the hotel charges, the rooms should be updated and the lobby with no warped flooring. Was disappointed and would not recommend, only if you want to step back into the late 70's, early 80's.

Humid and musty (AC barely works). Warped flooring in lobby. Generally run down. Front desk staff was rude and unfriendly. Very unhappy especially considering what they charge for a night. Will never return and would not recommend.

Reception/Registration service is not friendly, the decor is dated, my room (506) smelled like damp cigarettes, and the carpet was sticky/damp. I was itching to leave as soon as I checked in. Additionally, there is a $30 extra fee for early check-in before 1:00pm, even if a room is ready. Also, they will hold your card in the amount of... More

The hotel website is a lie with pictures far from matching reality. It let's you think the hotel is clean and fairly well refurbished but it is actually in the same condition as it was 20 years ago. The rooms are barely clean, sticky carpet and dirty paint marks on the walls. We were first offered a horrible room with... More

The hotel location is good. The interior is tiny. The room I stayed in wad painted darker green which looked kind of hideous. The bed was not comfortable. The bathroom needs some renovation work. The toilet tank was leaking a little. The woman at the chec-in counter was not friendly. Never said hi when I checked in or checked out.... More

I'm not a coffee drinker so I stopped at the front desk before going to bed and asked if there was a soda machine in the hotel where I could buy a Diet Coke for the morning. The attendant at the front desk said that there were Diet Cokes in the mini-bar in my room. I then went up to... More

I'd stayed at the Metro in the range of 7 or 8 years ago and was very disappointed however I figured as they were still in business maybe they had turned things around and booked an anniversary stay with them. Now I booked through Priceline which turns out to be part of the mistake as they don't clarify which room... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This historic, Art Deco inspired, hotel is located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee's Art and Entertainment District. Our suites are not just spacious, they are HUGE!

We are very close to Lake Michigan's waterfront, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Harley Davidson Museum, BMO Harris Bradley Center and the Wisconsin Center. Hotel Metro is a Four-Star, full-service hotel and has been fortunate enough to have been recognized as "One of the Top Hotels in the World" by Travel & Leisure Magazine, as well as "Where to Stay" by the New York Times.
