“Great hotel in Milwaukee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I was anticipating a standard ol' Hilton; when I arrived for the TOPS convention, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The lobby and furnishings, elevators and fixtures such as the mail chutes, were all quaint but in top condition. The lobby was spacious and had plenty of areas for quiet visits or more boisterous games. The fitness center and on-site food and beverage outlets covered every meal period and product was very good. I note that other people say the staff was friendly. They were, but so was every person I encountered in the city, so I think Milwaukee is chock full of friendly people. Staff was very knowledgeable, helpful, and organized. Rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. Our room had been recently renovated and was very comfortable and attractive.

Room Tip: Not sure of directions, but if you want a view, don't get a room on the east (?) side; it overlo...

This hotel is a great combination of charm, luxury, convenience and affordability. The parking is a little pricey for non-valet ($24 per night) but at least the garage is attached the hotel on the 2nd floor. It is also much nicer than most dog-friendly hotels and even has a grassy area to take them out.

An old structure that has been nicely updated. Requested and got a room on an upper floor with a view of Lake Michigan. Very nice. Self park available next door with a covered walkway to the Hotel. Staff was on it and very helpful. Bell service was great. Spent an extra 10 minutes at the front door when the hop heard we were going to Door County and had his cell phone out recommending unique places to eat and see that he was familiar with.

Hotel is beautiful and within walking distance to everything in downtown Milwaukee. Employees at front desk were very helpful and we were able to get a bigger room on an upper floor with a lake view. We booked on Hotwire and got a really great deal for a weekend stay. The only negative I could say is that the bathroom in our room was very small, but it didn't really bother us that much. We stayed on the 24th floor and had a great view of downtown and the lake. On our second night, there was a thunderstorm and we opened the curtains in our room and watched the lightning. It was a cool sight. You won't be disappointed in this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor with a lake view.

If you want great service this is the place to stay. I have no complaints and lots of compliments. They treat you right here. I do think we paid a little too much for the room, but I think it was because of the location and the fact that it was downtown.
