One thing I like about old hotels is the variety of room shapes. My room (1734) was had two doubles beds on an inside corner. The layout was weird with the door basically on the side. I will likely stay here again just to review a different layout. The elevators were confusing. While beautiful, the main set of 6 had somewhat broken chimes and while the panel on the lobby level was very cool, it was not clear which elevator was which and many of the lights were burnt out. Destination dispatch would be my improvement, which no hotel in Milwaukee currently has. As there was a large convention that started the day I left (Independence Day), the hotel should probably have that for busy days and checkout. Because of the intermittently working bells, it wasn’t easy to tell which elevator you got. Overall, while it’s very cool, it has a lot of room for improvement.

The hotel was wonderful! The restaurant not so much. Took my phone number, said it was a two hour wait. Never texted ever! Finally went and got pizza at Dominos at 10pm. The hotel itself was excellent and clean.

The hotel was beautiful—a national treasure! The architecture and historic details of the hotel were breathtaking. We highly enjoyed our stay. The view was beautiful, staff was so accommodating, quick service and loved having a great restaurant and Starbucks on sight! I was only disappointed to not be thanked for being a HHonors member and did not receive my welcome benefit. I wish the room temperature could have been set a little cooler than 70 degrees, but overall we enjoyed our stay. Would recommend a higher floor with a city view and the burgers from Miller Time were great!
