Located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, WI, the Hilton Milwaukee City Center hotel puts you in easy reach of some of Milwaukee's most popular attractions. The theater district is on this Milwaukee hotel's doorstep, as is the Bradley Center, home of the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks. Minutes from Wisconsin's highways and nine miles from General Mitchell International Airport (MKE), the largest of downtown Milwaukee hotels is an easy commute from almost any location. Built in 1927 in classic Art Deco style, Hilton Milwaukee City Center provides an elegant venue for your stay or event. Relax in a guest room at Hilton Milwaukee City Center which features the best of modern comfort and technology. Executive rooms come with pull-out sofa sleepers, making a great option for families or groups. For a special occasion, upgrade to The Governor’s Suite. Accessible rooms are available. Start the day the right way with breakfast at The Café and order your favorite coffee from Starbucks® in the lower lobby. The Monarch Lounge offers an opportunity to stay connected or socialize over cocktails in a relaxing atmosphere. At dinner, dry aged steaks come seared to your preference in the Milwaukee Chophouse. Catch a game with a friendly crowd of locals, 20 craft burgers and 20 draft beers at The Miller Time

Concert Quick Trip

The hotel is nice, but a bit dated. My wife and I came for a concert at the Rivercenter and it was very easy to walk to the venue. The late night bar was great. Self parking was a bit expensive.

Great location for Summerfest/fesitvals

The Hilton is right on the bus route for Summerfest and other festivals on the lakefront. The bar in the hotel is a great amenity as well.

Old hotel showing it's age.

Peeling woodwork, window that would't close completely, burn mark in curtain, air conditioning not effective, Sunday Brunch items were not at a proper temperature, just not a very well maintained property.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Don't eat here, don't stay here. Too many other places to stay at or dine at instead of getting duped because of the brand name associated with this hotel.

Wonderful one night stay

Hotel was beautiful, staff was very attentive to our needs. Tons of parking for a price charged right to your room. Only thing that's was wrong with our stay was the temperature of our room it was incredibly HOT tried adjusting thermostat did not work. The Millertime pub had a great atmosphere, also the cafe for breakfast was delicious could have a larger selection for the price we paid. We will be booking with the hilton again in June .

Great,except...

The only complaint I have with this hotel, is that the room was not the same as the picture. We stayed in a junior suite, and the one in the picture shows a fridge & microwave. There were none in the room. Everything else was as described.

Wonderful stay......

The room was a little small but that was okay because we did not spend much time there. The location to 3rd ward and old world 3rd st was excellent. Would not think twice aboout staying there again with all the good stuff close by.

Bedbugs

First off there wasn't a fridge in the room. At almost $200 a night that was shocking. When we lifted the sheet to go to bed there was an alive bedbug sitting there. Part of the staff was concerned but who I think was the room service manager acted as if we were disrupting him and showed no concern. The manager offered switch our rooms but we were too disgusted and we left.
