Recently stayed at this property. It is a neat place to stay. It was the old Pabst Brewery and it was converted into a hotel. It's near downtown, but you either have to drive or take a cab. The area around the hotel looks a bit industrial. There is not much nearby in terms of restaurants except for the restaurant located in the hotel. Food is ok. Nothing special. Has a good beer list. Bar type food.
Parking: If you need to go in and out of the hotel you can park near the Pabst brewery tour building on the next block over. Parking is free for either 2 hrs or 1 hour.
Don't use the meters in front of the hotel, parking is free at the across street or next to hotel.
Parking at hotel is valet- overnight $26, daily is $16. Don't bother.
There is a parking garage across the street. You can park overnight for $9.00. (No in and out privileges.... but if your settled in for the night .... that's the place to park) good deal.
Hotel: The lobby is fantastic. The front desk staff was very nice at check-in and our room was ready a little earlier. There is a area downstairs where they serve free continental breakfast.
They coffee, tea, hard boiled eggs, cereal -raisin bran, cherrios etc, yogurt, fruit juice- apple, orange, water, milk, they also had bagels, english muffins,toast, fresh fruit- apples, bananas, oranges, danishes and coffee cake.
Also downstairs are 2 computer work stations. Free-wifi is also available.
We had a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit. It was very big and spacious. Kitchen with all the basics. Note there is no oven... just a stove top. So it's not really a full kitchen per say but a basic kitchenette- microwave, fridge, dishwasher, toaster etc. The coffee maker is a keurig. They only have 4 k-cups. They don't have a regular coffee maker. We had brought along our own ground coffee, but we couldn't use it. There is no table and chairs to eat at. They have a bar type table coming out of a wall and bar stool chairs. Please invest in a table and chairs- note to management. It's kind of uncomfortable eating at the bar table. Would be hard for the elderly and children to sit at. There is certainly is space for a regular table in the living area.
Beds are very comfortable and so are linens and pillows. Bathrooms are a good size. But there are no bath tubs. Only showers. So if you are traveling with smaller children that don't shower may not be the place for you to stay.
Also there are no closets in the bedrooms except for dresser/desk combo with 2 drawers in each room. There is a lack of space to hang close up.
Overall, it was a really neat historical hotel. They kept the old brewing kettles and maintained the architecture of the building.
Try to get a room on the highest or higher floor facing north. We were on a lower floor above the restaurant/bar and you could hear faint music and noise. The bar closes at 2:00 a.m.
The employees were very nice and pleasant. Outstanding customer service.
Will definitely stay here again!
