watch out for crazies.

Being near 3rd street bars is great, but we ended up getting crank called, as well as knockkkockditched at 3 in the morning. Beware.

Smart Innovative hotel, great location

On the riverwalk - easy to get to bars and restuarants. Hotel staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Facility was fantastic - view from riverview room was fantastic. Green hotel - opt out of daily maid service (keep your sheets and towels) and get a $5 voucher to use in "snack bar." Compliementary coffee and super gym. Splash pool had great location (small, but it is called a splash pool). The only slightly annoying thing was that the light switches were not easy to understand.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Find the Safe House on front street- very interesting bar (speak easy) that requires a password for entry (if you don't know the password, be prepared to act silly to get in). Also, take a tour Lake Front brewing (try to take the tour with Andy).

Good Location

Hotel had a very good location, close to a lot of good eating spots. Hotel was new but we could hear pets on the floor. Carpet also had some pet hair that we could have done without. Hotel skims on some of the amenities, but was a fairly new hotel so it looked nice.

Looks cool, but it's nothing special

It was average at best. The staff was informal and a bit unprofessional in my opinion. We expected more than we got. The room smelled odd and the light switches didn't really work so you could either have all the lights in the room on or none at all.

Fresh, Modern and New in Downtown Milwaukee

A smaller, new property on the near north side of the city with creative, modern decor, a new concept, and modest amenities. Great for a night or two downtown, but not complete enough for a longer stay. Clean and new with friendly people.

Added costs

Although not uncommon for metropolitian hotels to charge for parking, it was not in the comments or noted upon booking, so be prepared to spend another 15-25 per day in parking cost. Competetive hotel rates in the Milw area near the airport in particular do not charge parking and the rate effectively was near 25% add on and a disappointing surprise.

Modern and lovely to look at, but

The public areas are outstanding. The rooms are great, the only negative is the absence of a cafe or restaurant.. Their snack machines sren't enough. Their bar was well appointed and comfortable, but it can't replace my morning coffee or breakfast.
