I travel to MKE for work quite often & this is definitely my hotel of choice. Spacious rooms, river front views, breakfast buffet and a complimentary happy hour Monday-Wednesday. They don't always have availability, but I always check here first!

Stopping in Milwaukee overnight was a last minute decision. The staff at the Residence Inn was beyond wonderful. The room was spacious and clean. They gave us a room overlooking the River walk which is just what we had asked for. We were greeting with free wine, beer and appetizers in the lobby. The River Walk was right outside their... More

Latrina and the other staff were absolutely a pleasure. Inviting and helpful staff. Rooms were great, clean and beautiful view of the river. Will definitely stay here again when I visit. Customer service is a big thing to me and the staff here showed it.

Our room (a 500 sq. ft. studio) overlooked the river. It also gave us a clear view east on Wisconsin all the way to Lake Michigan. The hotel is located in a former department store, which means high ceilings which adds to the spaciousness. Staff is friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast is standard. You can walk to theatres (Riverside, Starlight,... More

Our family of 6 stayed at this hotel in August and enjoyed a large spacious room with a delicious daily breakfast and evening reception on Monday and Tuesday night. The staff is what makes this place exceptional. So friendly, so helpful and make you feel so welcome. The rooms are spacious but a bit worn, hence the 4 instead of... More

1 night stay on way to Chicago. Beautiful clean hotel, great location, superb sized room, overlooking river. Linked to Skywalk which we loved. Next to a lovely river walk, which we did. Would have loved to have stayed longer. Breakfast was also great.

Stayed for two nights as the first stop of a Lake Michigan circle driving trip. Location on Riverwalk is ideal; near historic third ward and nice restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms have incredible high ceilings and are very large. Two gripes: the carpet in the room was stained and the fruit at the otherwise fine... More

I liked this hotel since my arrival. Still during checkin they gave me a free update to a really big room (kitchen, tv room and 2 bedrooms), incredible. The staff was really kind during my whole stay. The fitness center is ok to exercise a bit during your stay. The parking lot is across the street. During summer it is... More
