“Charming and old school ... I love it !”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

one of the hotels in the US with real character. Old fashioned but clean! perfect location and very sympathetic staff.
Internet connection was the only negative.
Will return for sure !

Stayed at the MAC for business and won't do so ever again. The internet service is iffy as with many older buildings that try to install wireless services. Don't try to get room service on a Monday night, either, because the MAC doesn't offer it and you'll be forced to walk to a local restaurant.

Overall, the hotel was old, looked worn, and didn't really impress.

My husband and two year old son stayed here just one night, but our experience was lovely. I like old places that have huge rooms and bathrooms and high ceilings, so this original gentlemen's club was that plus more. The women's pool, staff, and facilities were nicer than most spas I've been to. All included in a reasonable rate and perfect location. No fridge in the room, but you get a sense that it was meant to be that way, not about keeping up with the Jones'. Many other good things to say, but little time to do it justice. I would stay there every time I happen to be in Milwaukee, a friendly, clean, and strikingly beautiful little city. I was impressed. Far from my hometown of Brooklyn, NY.

This historic property has lots of charm. Very clean. Responsive staff. Our main destination was the Milwaukee Art Museum and it was an easy walk. Dining on the rooftop terrace was a great experience.

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.
