We booked our room at The Knickerbocker because there were literally no other rooms available in Milwaukee due to the NML convention in town. The photos on line looked good so we decided to take a chance. Don't be fooled. The photos do not represent the property accurately. As we made our way to our room and got off the...

Stayed at the Knickerbocker and should of read the reviews. The front desk check in - the woman was on the phone stood there forever waiting to find out about parking and was not friendly.

I travel a lot for work and was pretty excited about going to the Knickerbocker for a wedding. Online it looked adorable and for the expensive price; I was sure this was going to be one of the best hotels ever. Oh dear god... was I wrong. When we arrived the desk clerk said she wasn't sure if our room...

useless service, if you can call it service. the staff seem to be bothered by anything you ask and are not volunteering any sort of information, a check in normally requires the reception to do more than to give you a key. check in 1t 3pm is too late, at 2:40 I gave up waiting and left my bag there....

We had guests stay at the Knickerbocker for our wedding. They were so helpful, very nice and patient with me when I called a ton of times to ask more and more questions. I stayed there the night before the wedding and it was neat. There was a mini- kitchen in the room! The staff was just great.

The hotel is in a nice location, but the place itself is not that great. It’s interesting because of its age but the nostalgia wears off quickly. The sheets at first glance made me wonder if the bed had been changed. The bathroom sports a pedestal sink so there is no counter space, you can put your toiletries in a...

We stayed here for 3 nights in the junior suite. It was like a small apartment. We had a separate kitchen with a full fridge, stove and microwave. They also had glasses, utensils and cookware. We had 2 closets and quite a bit of space including in room free internet. It was quite old an interesting, yet updated and comfortable....

This hotel is need of renovations. This was made apparent by the pounding that began at 8:30am on a Sunday. On what planet would you allow renovations to begin at that hour, on a Sunday, I have no idea. On what planet you would allow someone to be placed in a room directly adjacent to renovations when it's not fully...

We stayed there for a business trip for 2 weeks and was really a wonderful, safe place near to lake with lake view in the room. Walkable distance to Metro Market, Restaurants, Starbucks, AT&T, Indian hotels. 10 minutes walk to E Wisconsin where most of the giant companies are!! Gym was small but it is kept good. Got a parking...

Spent just one night at the Knickerbocker hotel - staff was very cordial and efficient at check in/out. Looks like most of the hotel rooms of this semi-converted apt. building are on the 7th floor, near the top of the building. It was well outfitted with all the kitchen utensils one needs. The room was spacious, with an office alcove...
