“Modern - Young Professional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was a great downtown hotel. The ambiance in the reception area was definitely modern and the music was catering to a younger professional crowd. The breakfast portions were large and delicious. I only stayed for one night on business.

We had a fantastic stay stay this hotel. Front desk staff including Paul Whitlock & Catharina took excellent care of us! The dessert bar on Saturday night in the lobby bar was a lot of fun. Loved the breakfast in Kilowatt on Sunday morning. We will be back!

Room Tip: We had a good view of the downtown plaza area

Every winter I travel to Milwaukee for a group trip with college friends for a Marquette University basketball game. There are several hotels in the area but this is hands down the best stay for a weekend. The staff is polite and is a great guide for the area. We have been staying there for the past 5 years. In those 5 years I have recommended The Intercontinental to the point where we have 15-20 people in our group staying there. We had breakfast at Kil@watt which was fantastic with once again, great prompt and personable service. Any time I travel to Milwaukee I will stay there for sure. Thanks to all the staff!

We lucked out and found this place on Hotwire. What an amazing room, very clean and quiet, plus complementary wifi. The lounge is a great place for a quick nightcap. This hotel is a perfect date night, especially when you combine it with dinner at Kil@watt restaurant and a show at the Pabst theater...they're all in the same building! I highly recommend this hotel for a spontaneous night out on the town.

We had to stay here one night in mid-march. I used priceline for this hotel on the morning of our stay and was able to get a room at the InterContinental for only $70.00. It is a very nice hotel, located downtown, and was easy to get to even with all of the interstate road construction going on. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was large, approx. 400 square feet with a high ceiling. It was clean and quiet. We did not eat at the restaurant, as it we got in late and it was a short stay, but there is a Starbucks right across the street for the morning coffee.

I stopped by Clear for lunch and had a great time! Not only was the food delicious, but the Luis, the bartender, made the whole experience worthwhile. He's funny, personable and provided fabulous service. While I had only stopped for a quick lunch, I ended up having a meal full of laughter and great conversation.

This hotel was perfectly located-- near the Milwaukee River, and not far from the Old World Wisconsin St. with Mader's great German restaurant. Its location was just across the street from the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, so we just walked over there for the evening performance of the Milwaukee Symphony. The hotel's own restaurant is excellent, and the best part was the three-course pre-theatre dinner for $30. Delicious! Room was very clean and the beds very comfortable... All in all, an excellent place to stay.
