We had an absolutely phenomenal time at this hotel. The nightly rate is a bit high for Milwaukee, but you get exactly what you pay for. The hotel is gorgeous, and it's tucked away just south of the Third Ward. The building itself is an old factory and they renovated to keep every bit of charm. The rooms are spacious and sexy, and the frosted glass shower wall adds a unique touch. The service was outstanding through and through. I contacted the concierge beforehand to make reservations for dinner and let him know that it was a special occasion, and we were greeted at the front desk with a glass of champagne (I think all guests are) and a bottle of champagne in the room.
The bed was extremely comfortable, food at Smyth and Branded was great and well-priced for the quality, and we loved enjoying the afternoon sun on the huge patio (The Yard). We return to Smyth often and stay at the hotel whenever we can think up an excuse.
Sidenote: this hotel is beyond pet-friendly. The offer a special package for dogs that includes a bed, bowls, toys and treats. It's not unusual to see a dog hanging out in the lobby soaking up attention from staff and guests.
