First, the bad news. We were there for three nights and housekeeping showed up for the first time after 6 PM on the second evening. We turned them away as we were dressing for dinner. Then we had to call them on the third day to get service.

Check-in was a breeze. We were very early and no rooms were available. They took our cell phone number, we found a place for lunch and we were called with a "your room is ready" just as we finished lunch. The king room was relatively small which is to be expected in an historic building. There were two annoying issues with the room. When the drapes were closed for the evening, they covered the air conditioning unit and as a result the room warmed up thru the night. Also, the bathroom door stuck so it was impossible to make a quiet trip to the facility.

The common areas in this hotel are very ornate and are to a grand scale. There were several weddings over the weekend and this is the perfect backdrop for a memorable occasion. The staff is friendly and helpful. Especially Greg the doorman who really went out of his way to see to it we enjoyed Milwaukee. Please note, there is no pool, so if that's important look elsewhere.

Overall good experience in that when there were issues with noise they gave a reasonable discount on the room. The decor was nice and the beds quite comfortable. It was a busy place with lots of people as well as pets.

Spent 2 nights here earlier this month. First class service all around, though the property itself is a bit faded these days.
Room was clean, but small. Would have preferred a mini-fridge. Parking in an adjacent connected structure was a nice plus.

We came to Milwaukee to race in the National Traithlon and stayed here! Beautiful Hotel and welcomed all of the triahtletes! Had a wonderful stay with great service! Everyone was so helpful and gave us great advice on where to eat and visit. We had a great view of the lake! A great location and easy to walk to many places for dining. Also has a trolley pick up right near the hotel as well which gave a great tour of the city!

We found out on arriving that the pool has been out of order for months. Should be nice when finished. Staff somehow found a way to ship my bicycle back home for 1/2 the cost I paid to send it from FedEx to FedEx shipping center.

The Hilton in downtown Milwaukee is .7 miles to the Harley Museum and shorter walk to Mo's Irish Pub. You can stay here without the need of a rental car and still experience the town walking. The Starbucks has a street and separate hotel entrance and has two restaurants; one upscale steak house and the Miller Time Pub.
