Such a amazing place! I highly recommend booking a stay, and being treated like a jewel. The Front Desk staff members are warming, and would be glad to service you. Additionally, The Hilton makes for a great stay for tourist wanting to be in a clean environment. Last, but not least don’t forget to sign up for Hilton Honors. Not only does it provide benefits, and helps save money overtime, it’s also free to sign up!

Hotel's Favorite
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.

Another business trip to the USA and another hotel stay .. 8 nights at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center. A hotel built 100 years ago but still standing tall. The room I had - 2419 - indeed 24th floor with a king size bed - nothing to really complain about it. For 1 person was more than enough spacious room, excellent bed, fridge was empty - it is what it is. Room was clean and house keeping b request - so only on the 4th day did they clean the room. So you had the privacy you needed. Bathroom - again clean - however kind of small compared to the rest of the room ... 2 people would not fit comfortably that's for sure .... Checking in and check out- smooth and fast , very polite front desk staff, nothing to complain. Good Wi-fi signal through the hotel and outside also. Breakfast at the LL(Lower Lobby) level, at "the Cafe" and since I was booked with breakfast included, every morning I was there ... options - well kind a limited because only the buffet was available - nonetheless - scrambled eggs, bacon, fruits - in the end it was manageable - plus they had Tabasco on every table (and I know somebody who says that you can eat cardboard if you have enough Tabasco) ... so yes the breakfast was decent and the options there -... much better than I'm used to in the US. The one thing that I did not get, was the fact that they were running shuttles to the airport but only for airline personnel not for other guests ... to be honest I find this strange - since run the shuttles anyway, charge me 10 bucks or 20 and offer the service to the other guests too. Nevermind. On the premises 1 sports bar kind of dinner - the Miller pub - Starbucks, vending machines on the 6th floor and the ChopHouse restaurant at the lower lobby level, plus the Hilton lounge at the lobby ... so you had your choices to grab some drinks. Overall - a very good hotel , by any standard - indeed not a perfect stay , minor things here and there - but overall a very good week , and I definitely recommend this hotel !!!

Not only is this a BEAUTIFUL Art Deco hotel, the staff and leadership are amazing! Although an older property, the beauty comes from within and I wanted to take a moment to thank EVERYONE on property for their warm welcome, hospitality and service throughout our stay. We were a group of 8, we all had our own room. EVERYONE including the leaders and staff did an amazing job – THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! From my many calls with Angela with the ever-changing reservation, from 4 to 8 to Philip welcoming us as we were entering the lobby to Steven, James and the security team providing best in class service and arrangements to help make our wrapping job easier to Joel speaking up when he saw me to be sure everything was OK and Mai and the entire front desk ensuring everything was in order with rooms also being ready early – please know that NOTHING could have been better!!!! Look forward to returning and thank you all again!

There is no pool, and you can hear constant music. The toilet didn’t work and the TV/internet didn’t work. Will definitely not stay again or recommend to anyone. It was expensive and miserable and the staff did not care.

No bell hops at this location. Not a great choice for those with mobility issues. The able bodied found it to be a lot of walking to get around hotel and to the conference center. Electrical in sleeping room was a concern. Plugs and electrical cords pulled out of sockets.

There are better choices in Milwaukee. This is an aging hotel that needs renovating. The rooms are large but the bathrooms are tiny. Also, despite what it says on the website, the hotel offers no room service and the Honors Lounge is closed. As far as sleep quality, the bed coverings are flimsy and low quality and the rooms have very thin doors so you hear everything. Lastly, most amenities that are normally present in a hotel in this category are missing.

Convenient location just off the interstates, adjacent to the conference center, and just down the street from the arenas and dining district. Friendly staff and clean, comfortable rooms. High floors on the east side have a view of Lake Michigan.

Great old hotel in downtown Milwaukee. I like that Miller Time Pub is open for lunch and dinner. They do need to update their Televisions, especially need to add the ability to steam with NetFlix and other streaming services.

The eating and drinking options at this hotel are great, so is the fancy art deco vibe in the lobbys. But that's where it ends - the rooms are more Super8 Motel and the staff at the front desk are rude. Beds are not comfortable and decor is non-existent and shabby. The bathroom in the 'King Superior' room was so small that you had to battle with the door to get in and out and keep your toiletries in the bathtub - it's such a shame, the the 1st two floors are fantastic.
