Hotel's Favorite
I had planned in great detail a birthday surprise for a family member including the destination and mode of transportation. I wanted the entire experience to be memorable including the hotel stay. Maria, a Front Desk agent, was a dream-come-true with her kindness, understanding, great attention to detail, and follow-up. No photos, guest review wording, nor even Maria, could have prepared me for the opulence of this history-rich hotel that is sure to remain a most memorable visual standout amongst the standouts of our hotel stays over the years. When I was in the lobby I would stare in awe at its beauty and wonder how we could afford staying there, but we could and you can! The prices of the well decorated rooms are so reasonable! Make sure to visit the hotel's welcome waggin' Millie (first and last syllables of her hometown Milwaukee), the four-legged concierge whom it seems runs - literally and figuratively - the hotel. She is the super star of that hotel but there are plenty of other staff, who like Maria and Gen, also at the Front Desk, are low key but who make sure that your stay will be memorable. The number of guests that hotel can accommodate makes this personalization even more amazing! The restaurants and pubs within the hotel are excellent with staff who don't take your patronage for granted! The hotel is located within two blocks of the Amtrak bus and train stations and within walking distance to many attractions, and other restaurants and pubs. Ride sharing to further away places like the Miller Brewery tour were reasonable in cost. I hope this hotel plays host to many guests and parties during the 2020 Democratic National Convention (July 13-16). The hotel, along with the very guest-oriented staff, are a reflection of Milwaukee's best in every way!

Everything was so dirty! I literally couldn’t touch anything and was uncomfortable sleeping there. We woke up first thing in the morning and left! Our bathroom was full of hair mold and someone else’s clothing. Their was mold spiderwebs and dust in every corner. I have never stayed in a Hilton hotel that was this bad.

We found that the beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet and clean. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful when we needed directions. The food in the grill on the main floor was excellent.
