I made my first trip to Milwaukee for Summerfest and chose this hotel based on its proximity to the grounds. It ended up being a great choice. The hotel is a convenient bus or shuttle ride away from the grounds and the chaotic night that I couldn't get on the shuttle or get a taxi because a lot of concerts got out at once it wasn't a bad walk.
The hotel is close to the Milwaukee Public Market where I bought some food items for late night snacks after the concerts. The Public Market is a real gem with some great restaurants. The full sized refrigerator in the kitchen came in handy. The laundry facilities were clean and convenient and one night I was there they had a sandwich bar that made a nice light dinner. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly.
The room was nice with comfortable furniture and the high ceilings made it seem even roomier. I had a river view as well. The breakfast buffet was good but I didn't get up early enough to make it a few mornings so I had something at the cafe at the Borders that is attached to the hotel.
I highly recommend this hotel. I hope to go to Summerfest again and will stay at the Residence Inn.
