“Griff/Hicks wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

I recently got married (11/16/2013) and had a reception at the Hilton Doubletree, I would just like to say that the wedding coordinator Allan Fischer was absolutely AMAZING throughout the entire process.
Allan accommodated us so much and really helped with making everything affordable and simple as we both wanted.
We brought in our own decorations and left instructions for the staff and the staff followed everything and made our day truly special.
Our hotel room suite was amazing the complimentary buffet breakfast was more than I expected and hands down the best breakfast I've had at ANY hotel I've stayed in throughout my travel in the states.
My family and friends were blown away by the delicious dinner that was served everything from the fruit to the pot roast and chicken was fresh and kept everyone going back for more. I originally didn't want a big wedding I preferred to keep it simple and elope but this experience has completely changed my mind and I would definitely do it all over again. On behalf of the Griff/ Hicks family thank you to Allan and the staff at Doubletree for an exceptional experience I have and I will continue to recommend this facility for events to family and friends!

KEEP UP THE GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WORK!! :)

We spent a Friday night in Milwaukee. The Double Tree is located close to Marquette University and also downtown Milwaukee. Valet parking was convenient and quick. The room was very nice. We were upgraded to a corner room which was nice. Breakfast was included in the package we booked and was better then average. Staff was very friendy.

I've stayed at this hotel several times. I am always greeted promptly and checked in within minutes. The warm cookies don't hurt either. The fitness area has decent equipment, but is quite small and fills up quickly.

One of the best stays I've had at a Doubletree. Courteous staff. I appreciated it when the desk called up to ask if I if I needed anything. The location was perfect, just across the street from the conference location. I also liked the restaurant on site, was pleasantly surprised by the healthy offerings on the menu and the broad selection of spirits at the bar.

I've been staying at this hotel for business travels weekly for the past 4 months. It's during this time I've gotten to know many of the employees and the attentiveness and happiness they show makes being away from home a little more enjoyable. The front desk team always says hi, management is always visible, and the valet staff is incredibly flexible and easy to work with. It has so many restaurants w/in a mile walk and others a 5 minute drive, but yet the in-room dining service has been very good when I've used it. They take incredibly good care of their Hilton Honors clients and would encourage anyone coming to Milwaukee to stay at the DoubleTree.

The DoubleTree in downtown Milwaukee is very conveniently located adjacent to the Wisconsin Center and is within easy walking distance of other downtown venues like the Milwaukee Public Market and the train station. Service is excellent. Front desk personnel are always friendly and very accommodating of personal requests. They also kindly provided me with extra cookies, since I'm addicted to their recipe for walnut chocolate chip.
