We stayed at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center for a family trip. We had a superior king and a double/double room. The superior king room is a very nice sized room, but the bathroom was incredibly small (about half the size of the double/double bathroom). Getting in and out of the bathroom felt completely cramped. Yet the rooms overall were... More

My buddy and I make an annual baseball trip, and this year Chicago and Milwaukee were up. We took the train from Chicago, which was very efficient and cheap, and it was only a few blocks to the hotel. It was an easy walk, so if you are taking the train, this hotel is perfect. The walk to the Milwaukee... More

This hotel is in a great location. The restaurants and bars are very nice. Great staff. We stayed on the 18th floor and the view is amazing. I would definitely stay in this hotel if I ever visit Milwaukee again. Walking distance to pubs, restaurants, shopping and public market. I feel pretty safe staying in this hotel.

A lovely hotel, full of old style charm with very helpful staff, due to the age of the hotel in general, some of the basic elements could perhaps do with an overall refresh. We were there for a wedding and reception and the rooms add a certain elegance to the whole event.

This hotel is in a great location it is a very pretty Hotel inside because they've updated the architecture other than that it was a terrible stay. The room keys never worked, we always had to have them come and make a new key which is very frustrating when you're coming in late and you're completely on the other side... More

We came to Milwaukee to experience MODERN architecture: the Milwaukee Art Museum (architect Calatrava) is a pleasant walk from the hotel right down Wisconsin Avenue to the lake. It was a fun to see the louvres on the roof open up, and to explore this very unique building. We found a great collection of modern art, too. Staying at the... More

This is a tired old hotel, formerly a Holiday Inn apparently. The proximity to Hollywood Blvd and Hollywood Bowl is apparently the draw. I had just stayed at a Hilton Garden Inn near Islip Airport which was wonderful--it's confusing how this could also be called a Garden Inn. The service was good and the breakfast was similar to other Garden... More

Great hotel with excellent access to convention center. I really appreciated being able to get from the convention center to my room in a timely fashion. The elevators were a bit slow, but the property is kept well for its age.

Overall, our stay was pleasant, but certainly nothing outstanding. We encountered several problems over the 5 night stay. The room was not ready when we came to the desk so we were told they would call us when it became ready. After a few hours I went back to check and there was a big line I had to wait... More

pblowrey- I certainly apologize for many aspects of your experience staying with us. I am imagining that I know the group you were staying with, as the check-in day was memorable to say the least. You are correct that there were several key areas in which we lacked for your stay. Please trust that experiences such as yours are not... More
