Traveled to Milwaukee for a weekend with friends to see the Cards/Brewers play. Hotel was interesting with the conversion from a department store. High ceilings gave a sense of space. Stayed in an angled one-bedroom suite (520) which gave you even more space. Room was clean, but couch and chair were a bit worn and uncomfortable. Huge suite, but only a queen bed. Would have rather had one night stand and a king-size bed.
Room was cleaner than most hotel rooms. Breakfast had a lot of variety, but really didn't taste that good. Not sure there were many restaurants right around there for breakfast, so it was convenient. Good, secure parking...emphasize secure. Seemed steep at $17/night, plus needing a map to find it, but it really wasn't much of a hassle after the first park.
Overall, staff was helpful. Cafe Benelux in the Third ward is a great Belgium restaurant. Try the Pannenkoeken...you won't be sorry. Also ate at Mo's Irish Pub which is a short walk from the hotel. Decent food, but avoid it before a Brewer's game unless you are taking advantage of the free shuttle! For the craziest brewery tour with lots of beer tasting, try the Lakefront Microbrewery.
