“EXCEPTIONAL HOTEL”
Reviewed April 22, 2011

We were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. They immediately upgraded our room and the front desk sent up champagne and chocolates!!!! Thanks Lee!!! The room was very quiet with a view. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The usa today paper was delivered to our room in the morning. What a wonderful stay. This hotel is across the street from the Marcus Performing Arts Center where we saw Les Mis. Perfect location, room and of course the employees were exceptional! Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!

Well Todd and Sandy we thank you for staying with us and happy belated anniversary to you both. Les Mis is a great show so I know you had an exceptional night. It’s good to know we played a small part in making your milestone 15th Anniversary just that much better. Thanks for the comments and we hope to be a part of many more anniversaries to come. -Steve

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for a week at the start of April celebrating our anniversary and it was fantastic! It is within walking distance to everywhere in MKE and offers great restaurants and bars. The room was fantastic (we were upgraded) and every single member of staff was incredibly friendly, with a special shoutout going to Lee the concierge!!! If your staying in MKE this is THE only place to stay,period.

About ten family members from around the country flew into Milwaukee to see our niece star in a high school production of Hairspray. We reserved three rooms and picked the Intercontinental because it is connected by a super-lobby to the historic Pabst Theatre right next door. Not only was it extremely convenient to go from the hotel to the theatre (without even going outside) but the entire three-day experience was highlighted by exceptional and friendly service, tremendous restaurants and food inside the hotel, and the most inviting rooms -- we loved the beds and pillows. In fact, none of us could think of anything to complain about. The rooms were very quiet, and even though the hotel was full, we never heard another soul -- no shower or toilet sounds, or anything. We were there on a Friday and Saturday night and the 1st floor bar, Clear, was hopping both nights. We were fortunate to be able to take over a large table for our family and guests and the late night hamburgers were delicious. Breakfast was served on the 2nd floor in the Kilowatt Restaurant and the service and food were top notch. If you are looking for a downtown Milwaukee location, you won't be able to beat the Intercontinental for convenience and price. We would go back again in a minute and highly recommend it for anyone interested in getting a great value. (As a side note, each room comes with an in-room safe that you can program with your own combination. We really appreciated putting our valuables in the safe while we were away from the room.)

No, thank you! We appreciate you and your family choosing our hotel for such a fun, family event. These are some very “uplifting” comments, which I believe is also one of the same words used to describe your nieces’ play. I really hope you had the chance to see the Flash Mob in CLEAR. I’m sure your niece was involved in that show as well. The Flash Mob was fun to see and brought an incredible energy to the lobby that night. Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful experience. - Steve

My 8 yr old daughter and I came to town this weekend to enjoy the museum and intercontinental did not disappoint. The front desk clerk noticed my daughter talking about how high the building was and right away asked if we wanted a room on a high floor, bonus points for it being right across from the performing arts building which lit up with different colors all night which once again my daughter could not get enough of.

I plan on spending more time in Milwaukee this summer compared to Madison and intercontinental is going to be my first choice, can't wait to for warm weather to enjoy the river walk.

Wow! That’s great that we were able to make the boss happy. It’s good to hear that all went well and we’re looking forward to your summer visits. If you time it right and you get a similar room you’ll have a chance to see a great bird show. Every summer hundreds of European Starlings nest in the trees across the street and do some very interesting and fun to watch geometrical flying patterns. See you this summer. -Steve

This is the first time I stayed in the IC in Milwaukee, during previous visits I stayed in the Courtyard hotel.
Eventhough I was upgraded to an executive room, the room was not as big as the rooms I stayed in in the courtyard. Still the room was more than big enough for somebody travelling alone, with a sitting room, a roomy bedroom and a bath room.
The Bath room was clean but looked a bit dated, it was ok though.

Breakfast is great in the IC, good service and excellent food! I like the bar as well, a good place to recover from the freezing cold of Milwaukee.

The location is good, it is in walking distance from lots of bars and restaurants and I even walked to the Bradley center for a Basket Ball game.

The IC is not the cheapest but it is a good and comfortable hotel, just what you need when you're away from home for a few weeks.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience at the InterContinental Milwaukee. It was a tough loss for those of us that are Bucks fans, but the Bulls did okay. We have the rematch scheduled for later this month and hopefully we’ll come out on top in that one. Hope you visit us again soon. -Steve

We LOVE the Intercontinental in downtown Milwaukee. It is the only hotel we stay at when we are in the city, after trying several others. The service is top notch, the facilities and location are perfect. The staff has always been very friendly and accomodating -- our first room was not ready this time and the front desk staff immediately rectified the situation. The new banquet director, Shari, went out of her way to greet us and introduce herself, which was great! The cocktails at Clear were delicious and the in room dining is always good and on-time. We will continue to make this our exclusive go-to hotel in the Milwaukee area.
