We made reservations two months in advance based on an ad promoting a package for seeing the current exhibit at the the Milwaukee Art Museum. When I called, I was told they discontinued the package but would give a $5.00 per person off coupon for the museum's exhibit. The reservationist also said there were two rooms left for our desired dates, one by the elevator and one further down the hall. I booked the room away from the elevator. Upon arrival we learned that the inn discontinued the discount coupons with the museum and, as fate would have it, we ended up with the room immediately next to the elevator. That really started things on a bad note.
However, from there-on, the room lived up to its billing and the elevator was a minor irritation. The pub and grill were fun with the bartendar engaging guests with all sorts of information about different alcohols. The menu was represented by a very knowledgeable waitress and our dinner was delightful.
The complimentary breakfast was ackward and I am not sure how to describe it. I think they were trying to personalize the experience, but it resulted in a long line waiting for one chef to take your order for an egg omlette. Short of waiting in line, you could choose dry ceral or toast but no fruit was available.
All staff were very friendly and most had an Irish accent which added to the Irish milieu.
