We stayed two nights while visiting Marquette University. The Double Tree is an exceptionally well managed property. Service from valet to front desk was ALWAYS friendly and helpful. And you can't beat the location....right in downtown Milwaukee convenient to convention center AND Marquette University.
Rooms have all been updated and are comfortable. However, ours was quite small (double room with two queen beds) for the three of us, not a surprise for an in-city hotel.
The warm cookie at check-in was nice....would have liked to have ice water or hot coffee in the lobby, though. The coffee maker in our room was on the bottom shelf of a cabinet, completely impractical and difficult to use. We would have enjoyed a 'coffee shop' option in the lobby.
So the pluses include:
- Well managed. If you have a problem, staff deals with it immediately (our room had not been cleaned and front desk had it dealt with within minutes).
- Valet parking
- Friendly staff
- Onsite restaurant
- Unbeatable location for downtown Milwaukee
- Valet parking expensive ($23 a day)
- Small rooms
- Pricey breakfast buffet ($15.95). The buffet was nice, but the most expensive hotel breakfast we encountered during our 12-day road trip.More
- Free Wifi
