“Great downtown location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The hotel is centrally located downtown to many different attractions. It is not too far to Lake Michigan. The room was small, but comfy. The bathroom could use more counter space, but it was adequate for our stay. Staff was helpful, and when our A/C went out, they were there within minutes and fixed the problem.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The lobby is breathtaking with it's ornate chandeliers, luxurious furniture, and staircases. Every inch of the hotel seemed to be spotless and very well kept. Nothing looked dated or worn. The staff was almost unreal how friendly they were. Even walking up the stairs a staff member stopped sweeping to look up and say hello and ask how our day had been. We were there for a conference which sold out the hotel so they were very busy, but you would not have known. We called for a bell hop and was told it would be around 20 minutes. In 10 Ken was at our door and packed every inch of that cart with all of our belongings. Dave greeted and sat us every morning with a huge smile and great conversation at The Cafe. Food was good and the options were even better! I would stay again.

A LARGE group attended our convention and yet EVERY employee of the Hilton took the time to greet each of us personally and with great sincerity! Ken, our bellman, upon leaving was terrific and managed to get all our luggage and goodies on ONE cart and then managed to get it all into our vehicle! If I EVER return to Milwaukee I will stay at the Hilton City Center EVERY time!

The hotel met all my needs and more. I was disappointed that the pool was not open. The hotel is absolutely lovely. All the staff were professional, efficient, and spoke every time I met them. This was not a pleasure trip for me but staying at the Hilton was a pleasure.

The staff at the Hilton in Milwaukee were so friendly, helpful and competent. They really made this a pleasurable experience. The rooms are rather small, but somewhat to be expected in a historic hotel. Despite the size, the room was very clean and comfortable.

Just had a 1 nite stay for Summerfest. The location is walkable or a shuttle to the fest grounds. Beds are comfortable. Staff is very friendly. Note that if you want a receipt you have to ask as they said they are now paperless. The room temp is controlled in the room and highlight that good soundproofing not hearing much noise on a full fest weekend. Small bathrm only disappointment.

Room Tip: We used Self park across the street which is $6 per calendar day.

Beautiful hotel. Very comfortable room, although the bathrooms were a bit small. Enjoyed both the bar and the buffet breakfast. About a 30 minute walk from Summerfest. A lot of parking close by (for a fee).
