Unexpected good time

I took this room the day before my night in Milwaukee because it was available, fairly well reviewed, and the price was right. The room was much better than expected. The bed was comfortable, TV as well, and there were no weird smells or anything. I'd definitely recommend this as a comfortable, no-frills option. Drawbacks are that the "fitness center" is just a regular room with glass door. Has one treadmill, one elliptical. Also, the free continental breakfast is bad. Worst part of the hotel by far. But you get what you pay for.

Missing some attention to detail

Free parking and free WiFi internet worked well and the room was quite. The iron was missing fom the room. After calling the front desk, the one house keeping brought up leaked water all over. There was also no waste basket in the bathroom. The breakfast room has really limited selections - instant coffee machine was particularly disappointing.

Decent Stay With Some "Reservations"

The overall condition of the hotel is lacking, patched repairs to the exterior, and the area of town is not the greatest, but the room was actually very nice, much better than what I would have expected from the outside. The sink in the bathroom was leaking and I guess that could happen anywhere and I'm sure they'll fix it, but I think they need to pay a bit more attention to maintenance and upkeep. Still the stay was very good and, as I said, the room was very nice.

Convenient Location, Good Value

Attractive Art-Deco renovated hotel. Not expensive, and very convenient for business in NorthWest Milwaukee. Great beds, nice decor, marble floors in lobby, nice bar/lounge, friendly staff. Easy access to major roads, highways. Convenient free parking. Expanded rooms in seperate building just across the street. Slightly more convenient if stay in main hotel. Located near Marquette University, Area not good for walking around near hotel, but they do have free shuttle bus to downtown.
