This is a totally unresponsive unpleasant hotel experience. I’ve been trying to get my room cleaned for two days. They have never come despite my request and confirmation. What exactly are we paying for in all the fees if not a basic room cleaning especially with Covid and especially when all your public areas are closed?

Hotel's Favorite
The hotel is beautifully restored. There are lots of gathering spaces to meet friends in the lobby, and beautiful ballrooms for large gatherings. Elevators were fast. Room was exceptionally quiet. If you love historic places, you'll love this hotel.

We have stayed at the Hilton City Center several times and it is always a pleasurable experience. During our most recent stay, we weren't sure what to expect due to COVID, but the staff went out of their way to make us feel safe and welcome. The rooms were exceptionally clean. We love how close the Hilton City Center is to restaurants and attractions; very accessible by foot or a short Uber ride. We also love the dining options available in the hotel itself. There are so many other places to stay in Milwaukee, but we always choose the Hilton City Center. We are already looking forward to our next stay. Highly recommend this hotel.

Elegant place, spacious lobby- great place to meet with friends or have a meeting/work space with electrical outlets to use your laptop. Beautiful and clean elevators, the walk to the hotel rooms through the parking lot door could be a long walk if you have a disability with walking although it is 4-5 minutes walk. Restaurants, river walk attractions -within walking distance. Clean rooms, soft pillows, fine linen etc. You will not regret, this is a real nice place!

5 night holiday solo traveller room 905. Great stay, walked everywhere as I had no car, it’s right near Amtrak and the tram. Uber anywhere was less than $15. I booked a suite but wouldn’t have if I’d known they’re all on the lower floors with NO views. This is a historic property so it has its lovely quirks except the shower has very limited water flow and pressure. The suite was large and perfect otherwise except for the plastic cups due to COVID. Great sleep no sign of ghost like previous reviews. The “Explorium Brew Pub” nearby was brilliant for dinner and Decent coffee down the street at “Canary Coffee.”
