My wife wanted a time warp for her birthday so we drove up to Milwaukee this past weekend for a two night stay in a King Suite on the eighth floor of the "old" building. We lived in Milwaukee for five years, and when relocating there in 1975 we spent many nights at the Pfister. We always preferred the older rooms to the "new" tower (new is at least 35 years in age). The original building has always been reminiscent of the hotels of my parents' and grandparents' generation, and I'm happy to say that the continuous ownership has preserved its character much the same as it was back in the day...the wide halls, the mummy doors, the mail chute. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The king suite has a large walk-in closet. Nice little added touches like two luggage racks instead of one, bath robes, umbrella, a fridge, and a box on the desk which looks like a humidor on the outside and has an electric power strip and USB cable inside. I've stayed at the Pfister from time-to-time over the years, and what impresses me is how consistently well-maintained the property has been, and the manner of competency of its service staff.
