Certificate of Excellence
Nestled in the heart of Milwaukee's Lower East Side, The Plaza hotel is brimming with character and Art Deco charm. Steps away from Milwaukee's lakefront, and a short walk to all downtown has to offer, The Plaza Hotel thrives in the heart of it all. Enjoy your own pied-a-terre with a cozy bed, fresh linens, a petite 1920's style bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. In the midst of your Milwaukee adventure, don't forget to stop by Café at The Plaza located on the Hotel's first floor. Belly up to the vintage Café counter, or have a seat in the European outdoor courtyard wrapped in red brick and ivy.

There is no elevator but only two floors so no problem! The bathroom was small but the rest of the room made up for it! I really appreciated the neat kitchen and the lovely bed. The location was close to everything and had easy parking.

Lovely old hotel walking distance from the Art Museum and also near the excellent restaurant, Barclays. Happy hour in the outdoor space between the ivy covered walls in the interior garden was quiet and restful.

Needs major updating. Loud window air conditioner? Not really downtown closer to college campus MSOE. Bathroom really small and old fashioned. Did not eat at restaurant or have drinks on site . Parking available for a price no secure.

Sherpa, I am so terribly sorry that we didn't meet your expectations on this visit. There are currently renovation plans in the works, and many of our rooms have already undergone some updates. We truly take pride in maintaining the history of the building, but are also responding to modernization and the travelers amenities. We hope you'll consider giving us another chance in the future. I'd be happy to discuss your stay personally. Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Best Regards, Nicole

I enjoyed my stay at the Plaza Hotel in downtown Milwaukee. The morning after I arrived, I thoroughly enjoyed walking down to the Lake. Loved the location and also the unique feel of the hotel. I was impressed with the cleanliness of my room and bathroom.
