The Pfister Hotel is a gem of a hotel in a gem of a city. We were there in summer, so I can not attest to the winter, but this was a very fun place and the hotel made it all the better.
The rooms are a bit small, but the hotel is in a great downtown landmark building, close to the lake. The historic preservation is beautiful. My only complaint would be that the hotel has tried to jazz up the room with modern (and cheap) looking art and lamps-that do not match the feel or ambiance of the hotel.
There is a historic building and a more modern tower. We stayed in the old building and loved it. I did go to the top of the tower-where the pool is located for some great views of the city. We also ate at the steak restaurant on the NE corner of the hotel and it was a wonderful experience.
We loved Milwaukee and the Pfister.
