Classic old world hotel with beautiful lobby and traditional rooms. For more modern rooms, select a room in the tower. Staff were very accommodating my request to switch rooms. Excellent location with several good restaurants nearby.

The Pfister is in an excellent location in Milwaukee. Great for Brewer Games or Summerfest (awesome Milwaukee music festival) or business in the city. A classic elegant hotel. There are shuttles offered to Brewer Games and Summerfest.

Very classy hotel. Very friendly staff, good restaurant attached, and pool on top floor is great for families. Rooms are VERY nice. Not just a fancy hotel in downtown, but actually a very nice, luxurious, well-maintained place to stay. Would recommend for sure.

We celebrated our long-time anniversary and service, staff and ambiance couldn't have been better. When you look at the history of the hotel, it was built in the European tradition of the grand hotel and it retains all those characteristics to this day.

The Intermodal Station downtown would be several blocks and about 20 minutes on foot. Aside from walking, most guests use a taxi service or a ride app on their phone. It is about a 7 minute drive.
