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.
