Great location. Nice room. Starbucks in lobby. Nice room and bathroom. I used Hilton Points to offset the cost. I like the bar area on the second floor. Nice outside area adjacent to lobby. Would I pay over $150 a night, no, unless somebody else was paying for it. Had a wedding reception. Food was terrible at the reception. Bartenders... More

I stayed here on a Friday evening on a educational trip. It was a nice stay, friendly staff, easy walk to the University and had several restaurants and a Starbucks on site. Porter even checked my bag for me until I checked in. Room was on the smaller side but clean and comfortable (where do they get those pillows??); perfect... More

We actually got this place via hotwire with a very good deal and this place is great! Yes there are some small flaws like a small bathroom, but it's an old building that was amazingly preserved! And the rooms smells awesome! Another great about this place is the guest service particularly the one who talked to us (ANTHONY). He is... More

The Hilton Milwaukee City Center has blended the classic hotel architecture of downtown Milwaukee with most modern comforts and conveniences. The rooms and decor in much of the hotel remain a throwback to years gone by, but the hotel has every modern amenity needed by travelers. From Wifi and flat screen televisions to comfortable beds and plenty of hot water... More

Although my stay was "ok", I would not repeat it. This hotel is extremely dated. The rooms are odd and not as clean as they should be.

The Hilton Milwaukee is first and foremost one of, if not, the most convenient hotel to the Wisconsin Convention Center. It's an old hotel for sure, in some areas showing its age, but for the most part, it retains its old world charm, with beautiful decor, and a majestic high ceilinged lobby. Rambling hallways, sprawling interiors, some grand common areas,... More

Our bathroom was quite small. We kept hitting the shower rod with the door every time we opened the door. The room service operator was very short with my wife when she tried to order lunch at 11 am ( they don'the serve lunch till noon). Other than those two small issues we had a great stay at this hotel.
