My wife and I spent a night in Milwaukee in late January, 2010. Originally we had targeted the Pfister as it has been a landmark in Milwaukee for decades. However she is a dedicated Trip Advisor review reader and discovered so many favorable reviews on the Residence Inn that we gave it a chance. The lobby was beautiful and front desk friendly. But when we opened the door to our room, we were blown away. The east wall is mostly a big window overlooking the Milwaukee River and some of the beautiful older building that Milwaukee has to offer. The windows are nestled between the columns of what was the Gimbels building and the windows are bordered by the intricate stone work that was commonly used in the first half of the 20th century. After the initial, pleasant shock wore off from that, we noticed that there was a full size refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. The stone counter top also housed a 2 burner cooktop and formed a breakfast bar type of thing. The furniture was attractive and useful, with a comfortable bed. As a hotel serving the function a Residence Inn does, it would be perfect for an extended stay. The location is excellent; right on the riverwalk and a short walk from many of Milwaukee’s attractions. This is a hotel that is an excellent bargain. One word of warning to business travelers; the business center does not have a printer. The Residence Inn is a truly impressive hotel in a city that is underrated for its quality, architecture, and things to do.
