Well preserved hotel, very comfortable. Great views from upper floors and plenty of services available like food and coffee in the lower areas. The elevators do take a few minutes to get up and down when the hotel is full but not bad if you expect it.

We really like this Hilton, but during our stay last weekend we were disappointed with the barking of a dog that went on for hours from midnight into the wee hours. The dog was also barking in the early morning - obviously the dog was left for many hours alone. We didn't know are room was on a dogs-allowed floor...

This is a must destination. The transformation has been marvelous.If you don't stay here, you certainly need to make the effort to visit the Bar/Lounge area, the restaurants, see the lobby. This hotel is truly a top notch hotel.

In our room there was no closet, so we had to lay our hanging clothes over a chair. The bathroom was so small that you could barely fit through the door. The shower rod was sticking out and keeping the door from opening all the way. You had to practically sit on the sink to close the door once inside....

Louis H- Thank you for taking the time to write a review and thank you for staying! Although I acknowledge that yes, our bathrooms can tend to run a bit smaller than the norm (this is a product merely of our hotel's design from the 1920's) your room certainly still would have included a closet, and I apologize that it...

Very nice lobby and easy check in are pluses for this conveniently located hotel. The beds were only full size, not queen, which is odd for this level of hotel. Parking is $25/night. The hotel had good soundproofing-- even though our room faced a busy street, it was very quiet.

PMath5516- Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay with us! It is an unfortunate truth that, yes, our rooms with multiple beds have are not Queen but rather Double sized. This is owing simply to the size of the 1920's designed rooms and I apologize for any inconvenience this caused during your stay. We certainly hope to...

One of the nicest hotels in downtown Milwaukee. The staff was very helpful in making sure your stay is a good one. There are multiple choices for food and coffee in the hotel and close by. Only complaint about the hotel is the setup of the bathroom in the room. The city of Milwaukee really needs to do something about...

I lived in Milwaukee fro 8 years, have since moved away, and never knew this gorgeous hotel existed! It's a must place to stay at. The bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows are real feathers and not foam!! It's located in a fabulous area of downtown Milwaukee and close to everything.

The reservation was made for me by the company I was there to visit. I'm a long time Hilton customer but had never stayed at this property. The hotel was a historical location. Beautiful lobby and entry area. Staff was very helpful with local directions and restaurant recommendations.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is an older hotel so the bathroom is small, however, the room was spacious. The room had high ceilings and a nice view of downtown and lake Michigan. Hands down, the best part of the room was the bed! I slept like a baby! It also is in a great location....
