A very busy weekend for the downtown area: 2 university graduations, concert, WIAA goings on and the Hyatt Regency handled their fully booked hotel with courtesy and grace. We were attendees at the UW-Milwaukee graduation and fortunately squeaked in with a last minute reservation and per a review on this site, requested a higher level floor. We were on the 8th which was great-we could see the two arenas and the gathering mobs of graduates and families, the river and cruise boat, the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts and looked up the street to Usinger's. Great view.
Breakfast was a choice of great buffet, or off the menu. I prefer off the menu as I find it usually less expensive and even better choices. The graduation started at 9:00am, and we were given a table-all table service restaurant-and were comfortably eating when people rolled in much later and expected to have sit down service. The hotel is huge, and the service managed well, because for those who chose to roll on in one hour before attending a program had the choice-albeit a long line there as well-of the pastry/coffee take away part of the gift shop. It was as well stocked for items as a Starbucks even if it wasn't a Starbucks.
Overall, the experience was great and I'd definitely choose the Hyatt Regency again for visits to Milwaukee.
