The bar area is also a restaurant. It has limited seating at the bar, in order to be seated at a table you have to have a reservation and order food. Not easy to get together with friends. The room was clean and comfortable. When checking in asked for a king room told none available, but the person right behind me was asked if he could upgrade to a king as there weren't enough double rooms???? First day on the job?????

Good Day -

Thank you for choosing to be our guest and for completed the TripAdvisor review of our property. I am sorry that we could not accommodate your request for a King size bed and then appeared to give another guest a King size bed. I would greatly appreciate any further details you can share on your stay to ensure we do not repeat this occurrence.

I look forward to having the chance to welcome you back to the Hilton Milwaukee City Center!

This Hilton is a beautiful old, glorious hotel...reminding one that they are in Europe, rather than Milwaukee. Hotel staff was excellent and went above and beyond. As a Hilton Diamond member, they upgraded me to a King Executive room which was beautiful. There was a problem with my heating unit and the housekeeping staff immediately called for me and it was quickly repaired. The Housekeeping Director, Nadiene, personally came to my room to check on the progress, apologized for the inconvenience, and left me a handwritten card on my pillow with a little "comp" inside. While there was really no inconvenience...it was greatly appreciated. The only down side to this hotel is that the Hilton Honors lounge is closed on the weekend and when open, they charge for alcoholic drinks. I would highly recommend this hotel due to the quality of the hotel and it's location to great downtown restaurants like Mader's German Restaurant.

Room Tip: I had a corner King Executive room with 3 large windows. It was huge and very comfortable. Loved i...

Drapes would not close all the way. They were also very old and dirty. Spotlight on flagpole outside my window shown right into my room all night. You could also clearly hear conversations, coughing, bathroom noises, etc. from neighbors. All in all I slept terribly. The hotel is beautiful, staff are super friendly and the bar/restaurants are great, the rooms just need to be updated terribly!

Heididydee -

Thank you for choosing to be our guest on your recent visit to Milwaukee. I am very sorry to hear about the issues you faced as our guest. Our Hotel does feature black out drapes which are behind our decorative yellow curtains. I am very sorry that we were unable to assist with the issue regarding the curtains.

Thank you for bringing the issue with the curtains to our attention. I look forward to having the chance to welcome you back to the Hilton Milwaukee City Center.

This Hotel uses non English speaking House keeping. When Guest is allergic to Feather, the Housekeeping put 8 feather pillows. This may kill the guest. Overall the hotel is good for non allergic guests. Please make sure you checked the things that they said they did to comply with your request. I was lucky to checked the pillows and they are all Feathers pillows.

Our stay was as it was the year before and all the years previous, WONDERFUL! The staff is always so kind and polite. EVERYONE you meet will greet you with a Hello and we were genuinely impressed with how caring everyone seems to be no matter the time of day or location in the Hotel. I would recommend this stay to ANYONE!

All the staff, especially front desk were great, but rooms although nice are average, bathrooms are not designed for easy function. Had a few room maintenance items which took 3 days to correct. internet is not free had to pay over $30 for 2 hours use.
