“So many positives and so many reasons to go back & stay!”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

We stayed at the MAC for a small family get together and had an enjoyable time. Each employee we met was very friendly and helpful. The location is great for sightseeing very centrally located.

We ate breakfast each morning in the club and our food was cooked to order. Each evening we would go to the roof top bar for cocktails. It was such a great location for cocktails...the food smelled great will have to remember that for our return visit. If it's nice weather make sure to take time to visit the the roof top bar!

The rooms (some are bigger than others) were spacious and clean. They are not the modern spa feel, but they have a warm cozy feel to them that is welcoming. The bath room is rather large with HOT water always a positive!

When we were leaving we missed a bag and the parking people were kind enough to call us and let us know that we left it and they would lock it up until we returned. That in its self is a great example of how the employees help make the MAC a great place to stay!

We spent 2 nights at the Milwaukee Athletic club. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location fit our needs perfectly. We enjoy walking all around the downtown and it was very centrally located. On friday night they had the rooftop bar open and it was a beautiful night with great views of the city.
Our room was large with a nice size bathroom. The room was clean but quite dated. The bathroom was done in yellow tile that I would say is from around the 1960's time period. The carpet and furniture were faded and worn.
We were satisfied with the hotel for our needs and the price was reasonable.

private club in downtown Milwaukee. great for meetings, weddings, quiet getaways, and big parties. The rooftop deck is a hidden gem in the city. Nobody has anything like it in Milwaukee. Full athletic facilities, including 2 pools and a full basketball court. Rates are very reasonable and the food is great. Highly recomended.

We spent 2 nights at the Milwaukee Athletic Club for an anniversary trip. The staff were really great: when I checked in at the front desk, the gentleman there (I believe his name was Doug) sang a little "happy anniversary" ditty, and then put us in a lake view room - that was a nice touch.

The guestroom itself was very large and clean. Furnishings and decor are somewhat spartan, but the place has what one needs to travel comfortably: very comfy bed, nice flat-screen TV, coffee maker and WiFi. I don't need much else. :-)

The athletic facilities are very nice, though they are gender-segregated, so my husband and I couldn't go for a swim together. I checked out the women's gym and pool, however, and found them to be great - with the nicest locker room I've ever been in!

The rooftop bar is a great place for a nightcap, and since we were there on a nice summer evening, we took advantage of the great view. The bartenders were great and served a good strong drink.

The location is smack in the middle of Milwaukee. We walked all over the city and found the place to make a perfect hub for our wanderings. The great Milwaukee Art Museum is an easy walk from the Athletic Club, as are many great restaurants, shops, etc.

We weren't planning to drive while we were in town, so the "required" valet parking wasn't a big issue for us, but that is something to be aware of if you want your vehicle handy. Also: when we were leaving, they brought us the wrong car! I could have headed off with a really nice new truck, if I'd been interested. That was the only staff slip-up we experienced, and they remedied it immediately, so no big deal.

Overall, we found this to be a good value for our money, and we had a nice stay.

This was our first trip to Milwaukee and we stayed here based on some reviews. The place itseld was really a nice place to stay as it had an old fashioned exclusive feel and it was located right downtown. The rooms aren't special in any way (kind of no frills) other than being located really high up (10 floor and up). IIf you are a swimmer the pools are fantastic and these plus the entire athletic club are free to use. In conclusion, if you want a good place to stay downtown and you don't need a super modern/fancy room, this is a good place to stay then.

This is a excellent place to stay , and the location was great.
The gym facilities were the best, and after having a minor problem the staff was quick to resolve it.
I would give this a five star rating, and will be back soon!
Top notch customer service and great location in the heart of Milwaukee:)
