We, that's my wife and me, made another travel through the USA and decided to see Milwaukee. Since it's a city of brewers we thought it might be fun. And....we were not disapointed at all!
The Astor hotel is the one nearest to Brady Street; all nice bars and restaurants. At the river side of Brady Street there's also the Lakeview micro brewery which is nice to have a drink and/or a meal; Very decent food for a decent price.
Even better is taking the tour to the Pabst experience 'Best place Milwaukee'. It is such a fun place, run by beer lovers! Also visiting the Pabst mansion is a very good experience since it's a stunning mansion and the tour guides are really wonderful.
Tip; don't take the tour through the Miller brewery; there is no heart and no soul. They do make some decent beers by the way....
The Astor Hotel has a VERY nice and helpful staff. The building itself has a soul and has aged mildly. Others might argue that it's rundown but hey, it's no new built five star place from easy-to-maintain materials.
We had a perfect bed, a good shower etc. and a coffeemaker in the room. Everything is clean. The hotel runs a shuttle bus and they'll take you anywhere you want WITHOUT CHARGING ANYTHING EXTRA!
You can have breakfast in the hotel (not included in the price) but I would recommend 'Brewed' on Brady street. They serve a really nice ' waffle with the works'. Oh, it's also very near the festival area near the lake and the Milwaukee art museum, which is very impressive too.
