“Living Social Deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

My wife booked this Hotel through "Living Social" as we had an event in the downtown Milwaukee area that would prohibit the safety of driving back to our home in the suburbs. It included 2 free drink coupons and breakfast the next morning. Upon checking in the person was very helpful. He was a trainee and, unfortunately, he keyed our card to an existing guest who was not happy. On my end, they handled it very well and from what I heard of the phone conversation from the unhappy guest, it also was handled as well as could be expected.

The rooms were modern and well appointed, bed was very comfortable and the breakfast the next morning was very good. The buffet is what was included in our deal and all items were well presented, fresh and warm.

It is a downtown hotel so the noise of the city can be a factor but it was not a problem for us.

I stay here every time I go to Milwaukee for business. The staff is courteous and helpful. Upon check in the staff was very accomodating in getting me my favorite room. The staff in the resturaunt is great. Every morning when I arrived for breakfast my coffee and orange juice arrived at my table without a word. This is the ONLY place I will stay in Milwuakee. Great place.

Room Tip: I live in the country so I prefer a quiet room. 10th floor on the back side of the hotel is the best...

I came to the Double Tree for a two day conference. Everything was handled well and convenient. The buffet breakfast was excellent with lots of fresh fruit including fresh berries. All meals were included in the conference and I didn't have to leave the hotel. Staff were everywhere taking care of my needs and the coffee was always made. The room was warm and inviting, The exercise equipment was in great shape. I took the bus in from the airport for $2.25 and it dropped me off and picked me up right in front of the hotel. Everything was included in the conference fee. I reported a leak under the bathroom sink and it was fixed when I got back to my room.

We stayed at the DoubleTree for 3 nights and were very pleased with our experience. Two in our party were in wheelchairs and the handicapped accessible rooms exceeded our expectations. The staff was warm and very helpful. The location was convenient. I felt it was a great value.

Room Tip: rated kids activities and pool average because these are areas I did not explore.

I was very pleased with my 2-night stay at Doubletree, in downtown Milwaukee. All my needs were met, as needed. The room met my expectations, the bed and pillows were wonderful. The morning breakfast buffet was delicious! The valet staff was very timely. All in all, an ideal hotel stay.

From the moment you walk in, the valet, the desk, the bartenders, the hostess and host, and the wait staff are all extremely friendly. Enjoyed the cheese curds and salad and reuben. Great food, great service!!!

We had purchased a Living Social deal for this hotel and weren't exactly sure what to expect. We initially thought it was for the (lavish) Hilton (right next door) but were directed across the street to this property. It is a smaller hotel and we were a little disappointed at first. Until we walked in the door--and were greeted at 9 PM with warm, fresh chocolate chip cookies; a speedy check-in for our sparkling clean room and bathroom; complimentary treats by the microwave and fridge (so we could enjoy a hot or cold beverage if we liked); and sank into the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in at a hotel! The fluffy white comforter was pristine and all of the many pillows were divine. The bathroom amenities and extra large, soft towels were a pleasant surprise. In the morning we were treated to a large bountiful breakfast buffet that had everything you could want--fresh brewed coffee, large assortment of quality teas, great juice, fresh fruits, pastries and other bakery, egg and potato dishes, meats and more. Angela and Lisa took great care of us, as did the entire staff. David, the Asst. Director of Food & Beverage really knows his stuff! Every staff member that we came in contact with treated us with friendly service right down to the genial valet parking attendant who promptly brought our car up to the door at check out. I can't say enough at how impressed my husband and I were with this property. They have set the bar pretty high for the competition. We'll definitely be back and recommend this hotel to our friends and family!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 9th floor and had just an exceptionally comfortable room--but they probably all are...
