“Nice room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

It was very cold when I arrived and it took a while for valet to come out and help me with my car. The hotel is really gorgeous. I love old buildings. The room as nice but sound intrusion is a concern.

Clean, friendly, and well staffed. Fitness center has free weights. Only thing missing for the price was a complimentary continental breakfast. I've stayed in a bunch of hotels during my business travels and this one definitely takes the prize for historic architecture. REALLY cool building that has been rehabbed.

Me and 3 friends (from out of town) booked a stay here so we could go out on the town for a bachelor party. It is a great location in downtown Milwaukee. It is very close to the bars and tons of restaurants. The hotel itself is very nice inside. We had two rooms with 2 queen beds. The beds and pillows were great. The Bellhops were very nice and helpful, the front desk manager was also very nice and friendly. Check in took about 2 minutes.

We had a few cocktails at the hotel bar before we went out for dinner and the service was very good. We also had the complimentary continental breakfast which was also very good. I would definitely stay here again.

Our one night stay began with the friendliest person behind the desk, Theresa. She is so welcoming, she made us feel as if we were old friends. The building itself is so impressive, loved walking around reading about some of the history of the building posted on the wall. Upon entering our room we were pleasantly surprised at the high ceilings. Finally, I'm germophobic and normally hate hotel stays. This was very different. This hotel room was the cleanest I've seen. It was a wonderful experience and hope you will stay here too.

Great location in a beautiful restored historic building. Rooms large and compfortable but had cleanliness issues. Some staff great (front desk) others just doing their job (bar and restaurant). Menu in restaurant better than expected for a medium valued prperty.

Elegant property and the service was top notch. Kudos go to my server Marianna; for making me feel welcome she was pleasant, helpful and attentive. The food was excellent. I travel 80% of my time and know a good staff when I see them - I will be back, and am looking forward to my next stay.

Room Tip: My room, east side was very quiet.

Having tried several of the main chain hotels in downtown Milwaukee, I've settled on this one as the best value with the least annoying wi-fi service. The building is lovely and the rooms are recently refurbished. I particularly like the large walk-in showers. The location is easy walking (weather permitting) to all of downtown and the third ward. The staff are casual and friendly; Marianna and both Sabrinas in the dining room and Teresa and Megan at the desk greet me by name in the evenings which creates a homey feel for this frequent traveler.
