I loved The Pfister Hotel. We were in town for Summerfest, and got a great deal on Priceline. I was surprised at the beauty inside the hotel. It actually is beautiful inside. We had a room on a higher floor and had a great view of the lake. It was quiet in our room, the bed was AWESOME. I loved this place, I wish I could afford to stay there once a month, just to get away from the family! Try it, you will love it.

The service at the Pfister Hotel is the best anyone could expect. The staff are always there for you and always willing to be of service. If available upgrades are available in which we were very happy with and because of that I would never stay anywhere else when visiting.
Most convenient is valet parking which was well worth not having to park yourself. Start enjoying your vacation experience right.

Room Tip: Ask for the best view if possible.

We spend three nights at the Pfister and loved it. The room was spacious and comfortable and all of the amenities of the hotel were exactly what you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. If you are planning time in Milwaukee, you must stay here.

My teen daughter and I stayed overnight and because of the great bargain we upgraded to a suite which included parking in the fee. The moment we walked into the elegant environment and world class service it was nothing short of instant relaxation. We loved the friendly service and spent time in the lobby lounge reading books by the fireplace and chatting with the talented piano player. We also visited with the artist in residence and wished we could have joined her on the tour of the paintings at the Pfister. We treated ourselves to room service for Easter Brunch. The food was delicious, hot, speedy and served elegantly. We cannot wait to come back. Thanks to all of you who make it a special place!

Thank you so much for your review. I am happy to hear that your trip and stay was very relaxing. The Lobby Lounge is a great spot to just sit, and take it all in. It's good to know that you enjoyed the pianist and the Artist in Residence, it's a wonderful cultural experience. Truly looking forward to your next visit with us here at the Pfister Hotel.

We stayed at the Pfister on April 22nd and had a great stay. We were in town for a tour of the Sprecher Brewery and fish fry.

The hotel's location is great and the service was superb. We didn't have dinner at the Phister, but we did get a chance to spend some time at Blu on the 23rd floor.

Breakfast at the hotel was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative I can think of is that they will charge you for parking ($25.00 add on charge) which I think should be waved for people actually staying at the hotel.

This was truly an excellent hotel and an excellent experience. I decided to go to Milwaukee for a 4-day weekend. Since I live near New York City and work there, I wanted a change of pace. The Hotel Pfister was beyond expectation. The service, the quality, and the beauty of the hotel is unsurpassed. Beautiful accomodations and excellent service. The truly outstanding and memorable part of the Hotel Pfister was Ellie -- our server in the lobby cocktail lounge. She is the most attentive, professional, and friendly staff person one could find! She was impeccable in terms of attentive service and personable warmth. At the end of the day, it was nice to go to back to this beautiful hotel and to be greeted so warmly and graciously by Ellie.
