“Top-notch for business or leisure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

I used this hotel for a multi-day business meeting and extended my stay through the weekend. Couldn't have been more pleased that it lived up to its acclaim! Running a meeting can be stressful and unexpected things always arise, but they quickly and graciously accommodated my every request, making my customers think I was a genius. Beautiful meeting space, responsive staff, and a clean, comfortable room. My event and I will be back.

The Intercontinental Hotel in Milwaukee was showing a colliection of paintings that my wife painted , and to make the night all sweeter it happen to be on the evening of her birthday. The staff went all out for her showing. A big beautiful open gallery. Sparkling wine! Lots of food ! And it was all free. About 40 of our friends and family attended, as well some walk ins from the hotels bar and lobby . They treated us like kings and queens. The staff was great. But we decided to spend the night, and celebrate with a suite. That's when the evening turned kind-of Sour. First of all, it turns out that even though they sell you a suite it's really what others call a junior suite. It was one big room with a king sized bed. When I brought this up to the desk they confessed that this was their version of a suite.
Suites are susposto be big fun, glamorous and usually made to impress. The suite at the Intercontinental in Milwaukee struck out in every inning . There was no dazzle when we opened the door . The room was a dull beige color. With two older looking swivel chairs made of a dirty looking fake suide material. And the carpet looked like a patchwork of remnants . It looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. The drapes didn't have any ends on and were falling off the drape rod . And the big metal panel that housed the heater fell down while we were drinking wine . The pole lamp didn't stand straight up , it leaned and the split in it's mid point was obvious. Lastly, in some points in the room the that ugly brown wall paper was peeling . So that was the big room. The bath room was worse. I was going to take a shower and the supply line valve came off in my hand. I could see a big spot on the floor of the shower where someone tried to repair the tiles . They did a crappy job and some of the tiles were sitting onto of other tiles in the shower(.I handed the tiles and the shower knob to the guy at the desk and this got meva free breakfast). And there was more stuff, petty stuff wrong with the room , like the price lable on the supply line to the toilet. And no shampoo or soap or conditioner. They're just little things , but this was a suite at the Intercontinental . And why only one bath robe? We're two people. We paid about three hundred bucks for this room. For that kind of money in Milwaukee a suite should be mouthwatering.

Room Tip: Check out the room before you buy it

The Intercontinental Hotel Milwaukee is a wonderful hotel with a great location in downtown Milwaukee! Friendly, helpful staff! We had a very nice room with a view on the 9th floor!
We were in town for a weekend getaway. We also attended a concert at The Riverside Theater which is close walking distance from the hotel.
We found the hotel to be clean with easy parking in the ramp next door.

Room Tip: We enjoyed a nice brunch one afternoon at their restaurant, Kilowatt. It was a delicious meal! We...

The hotel was beautiful, the bell hops went above and beyond - Dave and Dom (?) were excellent, helpful, friendly.
I wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed more of the things offered at the hotel. The work out room was fabulous.

This past weekend, myself and my 7 sisters stayed at the InterContinental in Milwaukee for our annual "Sister Weekend". I would like to compliment the service we received from the Bell Staff the entire time we were there. By name..... Josh, Dave, Daniel, and Lucas....they were amazingly friendly and accommodating! They made our stay very enjoyable. Also, the hotel was beautiful and the location was great! Would definitely stay here on our next visit to downtown Milwaukee!
Thank you!

I took my husband for a getaway and we had a wonderful time. The hotel was beautiful and we enjoyed the downtown. The hotel is centrally located and we were able to walk to different things to see. The bar in the hotel was relaxing and breakfast was good.
