I stayed there for 4 weeks on a business trip. The location is great, by the Riverwalk, close to the third ward. The room was huge with high ceiling and large windows. The staff was very nice and helpful, specially Cherita who takes care of the customers warmly. Usually I feel awkward during long stays... the room starts to feel... More

A group of 8 of us stayed at the Residence Inn for a trip for my sister's bachelorette party. We were impressed immediately by the location next to the River Walk. The front desk staff, specifically Charita, was friendly and helpful with anything and everything we needed for the weekend. We never hesitated to call the desk with questions. The... More

I stay at Marriott exclusively and on a weekly basis. This property is in a great location, rooms are huge and the views are very pleasant. The customer service over shadows everything. Specifically Clarice at the front desk. During my stay she went above and beyond the call of duty for my wife and I. She's passionate about her job,... More

Located in a converted architectural landmark building, the spacious rooms all have high ceilings and great views. Much more interesting than the standard hotel construction. Staff there is friendly and helpful and they have a Manager's reception Mon to Wed. Underground secured parking is available at $19/day extra

This hotel was originally a department store that has been refurbished into a hotel about 20 years ago. The rooms are very large, all seem to be different in size and shape. The rooms all have double height windows, some overlooking the Milwaukee River and some overlooking the Wisconsin St and some the entrance. Most businesses and sightseeing is within... More

Great suites. Refrigerator, microwave, cooktop, coffeemaker. This place is nice and clean, and the girl at the front desk was an absolute doll. Very accommodating. I recommend this place. I'll stay here again. The location is great! Free breakfast.

The room had large windows, high ceilings, comfortable kitchen and dining area, along with a living area, sleeping area, and dressing area. The view of the river and city were beautiful.
