I recently returned from a week long stay at the Pfister in Milwaukee. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. The staff at the hotel is great and did a good job with check in, bartending, and cleaning. The rooms are nice with VERY comfortable beds, nice bath products (their spa brand), and new flat panel high definition TV and cable.
There are great places to eat within walking distance. Inside the hotel is a steakhouse / grill called Mason Street Grill. It’s a nice place to eat with a group or alone. They have a “single business traveler” section that is like a bar in front of the kitchen so if you’re alone and want to read the paper you’ll be comfortable there. The steak is good but ask for it with no extra oil. It had added oil which I did not appreciate. Within walking distance you will find a great quant Italian restaurant. I don’t remember the name (I think it started with a V) but it’s on the corner of Mason and Milwaukee. On Milwaukee, between Mason and Wisconsin, you’ll find a fun Cuban restaurant called Cubanitas, and a GREAT sushi and Korean grill called Sake Tumi. Sake Tumi was my favorite place within walking distance for a great dinner.
Be aware, the parking is expensive for Milwaukee at $25 a night. The gym is excellent and most of the cardio equipment has personal TV’s attached. The elevators are SLOW at high traffic times, plan for it as it could add a few minutes to your morning. Overall great stay. I will stay here again.
