Although I came for a business trip, I will definately be returning with my family. It was such a wonderful experience and I am excited for my family to see the wonderful hotel and Milwaukee! Everyone, at the hotel and the city, was so nice.

Beautiful lobby and kind staff who tried to give us a relaxing stay in Milwaukee. Super location, close to the lake and beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the lake front. Close to Summer Fest concert and festivities.

Overall, my stay was nice, except when I wanted to use the air - it seemed to be broke. I didn't complain because I wasn't in the room much. I do enjoy stating at the Hilton, this is why I am going to give you another chance in Milwaukee.

I stay here for work and this hotel is a definite throwback. It feels like a step back in time. Beautiful lobby. A restaurant that is true fine dining and a pub that makes you feel right at home. Everyone is helpful and courteous. Rooms are clean and maintain that old school charm. Location makes everything downtown accessible and only...

We called ahead to ensure our reservation was OK and were told it was. When we arrived after a 5.5 hour drive, we were told that they did not have a room for us and would have to send us to another hotel nearby. This was during a bus strike and the Independence Day fireworks so the normally 5 minute...

We had 3 people sharing a room, and thus 2 shared a bed. The beds were really too small for two people. It made for a very restless night for the two that shared.

I live in the Milwaukee area and don't usually stay in a hotel downtown. But with my girlfriend coming in from Chicago we decided to stay downtown when we went to Summerfest. First impression was the front door hotel staff. Very friendly, and informative. Then you walk into the grand entrance to this wonderful old hotel. The dark wood, beautiful...
