Room 712. This is a block of privately owned condominiums that are rented out and serviced apparently. Reception was very professional and helpful. Room was clean and spacious, bed large and comfortable. The building is really historical and impressive to enter. A surprisingly lively bar hides behind an off corridor door. Only downside was the ancient plumbing operating the shower...

I decided to spend the nigh in Milwakee since I was attending a concert at The Shack which is walking distance. I booked the hotel the same day and the price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. I enjoyed the hotel, the rooms have a kitchenette so even if you want to cook you can do it....

All staff were very friendly, especially front desk & housekeeping. The room had a kitchen which made my stay very comfortable. The location was ideal for our visit, we walked to the lake front, the Discovery Center, coffee shops, a food store and, of course, the wedding venue.

Very good value for money - especially if you have a family, and need to stay a few days. In the centre of town, which makes it a great place to stay to explore. Very helpful staff on the reception desk. Well appointed rooms - apparently all with a kitchen. Clean & comfortable. We had a junior suite on the...

Stayed for four nights on a business trip. I arrived late approx 1am and the process for checking in and getting the car parked up was a bit time consuming. Having to pay for the parking as a staying as a guest appears to be a bit of a con. I can understand for downtown park during the day but...

Great location on the northern end of the heart of downtown. Parking is going to be a challenge on the street, $18 per day for the street pass, (otherwise you have to move your car every 2 hours). Consider valet, (cost unknown). The lobby is old time and great, there is just no real place to sit of enjoy. The...
