It was my first time in Milwaukee and this was the perfect place to stay. It has a central location, the hotel staff are lovely and my room felt like a home. Having my own kitchen and a huge wardrobe also a desk to do my work was just perfect for me. I would stay there 100x over!

Our visit began with very helpful and welcoming staff. This is an older boutique hotel, but don't let that turn you off. The rooms are well-maintained, large and comfortable. The location is very convenient to shopping, unique neighborhoods and the water front. Then the restaurant... wow! we had breakfast, well, brunch. Servings were huge, the dishes are fabulous and the... More

Service was welcoming as we were greeted with a smile by Brenda. Room was extremely clean, and bed was comfy. The Cafe has rolled out a new menu. The breaded shrimp were huge and falafel was yummy as well as the chicken and waffle. (big ole piece of chicken). Delicious. Great experience!

Step back in time at this Art Deco combined residence and hotel. From the front lobby with marble and Frank Lloyd Wright inspired windows, to the rooms with nooks and crannies and high ceilings and the most comfortable beds, to the charming courtyard outside the restuarant , to siting besides young and old, residents and travelers.. This is an experience... More

Love the hotel. We stayed here while picking up our new puppy - everyone was wonderful - restaurants were great. It was very comfortable. There was a market across the street which was nice - and the room had a small kitchen.

In town for USA Fencing's November NAC tournament, I highly recommend the Plaza. Old school charm and decor matched with courteous, modern service. I arrived early. The front desk staff took my bags and directed me to their excellent Cafe. When I finished brunch, my bags were already in my room. The rooms are mini-apartments with ample closet space and... More

Hotel offered a great location, i was able to move around and get to know the city; just a few minutes from the The Bradley Center and the River walk area. Plus, the room was comfortable and the hotel staff was very kind.

Spent a weekend in Milwaukee and stayed at the Plaza. I was very impressed with the well maintained uniqueness of this hotel and it's 1923 art deco interior. It is an old hotel, but our room was found to be well maintained, clean, quiet (except during cafe' hours) and comfortable (with the exception of a VERY firm mattress)..We were on... More

No elevator, No A/C (thankfully it was cold outside). Rooms were very clean but did not look like they did online. Staff was very friendly; however, did not go 'over-the-top' to assist us. We asked for a rental car, we were told to go online and find one. Need a taxi, call yourself. Not the answer I was looking for.
