Marcus at the front desk gave us room 717 when he heard that my husband and I were just married and decided to take a mini honeymoon since we don't have an actual honeymoon planned yet. He also gifted us with a wonderful bottle of champagne to celebrate! We would both highly recommend this hotel and give a HUGE thank you to Marcus!

Clean rooms with 20 foot ceilings. Great views of the river/riverwalk. Walking distance to Historic Third Ward, Old World Third Street, and other key attractions. What struck us most was the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff members we came into contact with. The complimentary happy hour and full breakfast were very good. Would definitely return again.

I chose this hotel for my husband and I for a weekend getaway during the holidays. We stayed in a king bedroom with river view and it was beautiful. The room was huge, ceilings were high and the windows enormous looking out over the river. We chose this hotel over a few other comparable locations for the view and free breakfast. Free breakfast always leaves a little to be desired, but it was perfectly fine for a quick bite. Definitely recommend this hotel if you're comparing it with others in the same price rage as the view sets it apart from a "regular" hotel. Location is also perfect for third ward shopping!

I always enjoy staying in the Residence Inn when I have to visit Milwaukee -- the location is very central (though the Michigan St. bridge is currently out), the rooms are spacious with very high ceilings, and if you can get a river view, the views from the immense windows are lovely. Our room was very clean and fresh-seeming, and the front desk staff was an unfailing delight. Bianca, in particular, is a treasure. There were a few minor service problems -- we had to ask the kitchen staff to replace empty coffee dispensers both mornings at breakfast, and a room cleaner knocked on our door in spite of us having a "Do Not Disturb" sign hanging on the handle. But other than those two small issues, we had another very comfortable and pleasant stay at the hotel.

We were there for only one night but really enjoyed our stay. The lobby is clean and appealing. The room was nice and quiet. The staff was helpful and friendly. It is located a few blocks from the 3rd Ward, Downtown, and Water St.
