Interesting, small outdoor cafes nearby, close to historic, very German Mader's full service restaurant. Starbucks across the street is convenient.

We were greeted with smiles and courtesy upon arriving. The staff was very professional and kind. We were there for a wedding, and it was nice to have other bars to visit throughout the day without having to leave the hotel.

last minute stop

We booked the hotel last minute after we decided to spend the night in Milwaukee. Using a travel app to book, we got a bargain! The hotel was downtown by Water street where there were a bunch of restaurants and bars to eat. It was also near the river walk area which was a nice place for a stroll. The room itself was very spacious and clean. We used the free fitness room the next morning and were told that we could also use the pool and spa at their sister hotel a few blocks over. The parking was $25 overnight which was a little high but for a one night stay we didn't complain. We would definitely stay here again if in Milwaukee.

Perfection

Everything needs to be spot right on for a hotel to receive a 4 star rating. 5 star is exceeding expectations. The complimentary coffee, a vital component to getting most people's days started was no where to be found or offered early in the morning, when people want to drink coffee. There was a whole group of people asking one another where the coffee was to be found and finally located it in an obsure spot on the 4th floor. What is that? Very rigid, cold, institutional like atmosphere. Would recommend if the price was lower than $144/night.

Great location downtown

Easy to find and park. Valet was great and quickly grabbed our luggage and walked us to the front desk to check in. We booked online at a great rate. We asked about upgrading but the front desk clerk couldn't figure out what the cost would be or the difference in the rooms. She asked a co worker for help but still no luck. After 10 minutes of the desk clerk trying to figure it out, we just kept the basic room. It was fine..nothing special. Breakfast in Restaurant was great. Would stay again.

Great location, wonder week

Had a lovely time. I was impressed by everyone's involvement in the basket ball events and happy to see the gallery space involved int he ceramics conference I attended. The only thing missing was a pool and hot tub. Great food, lovely service and lots of happy faces. Satisfied with the entire visit.

Close to the Riverwalk, Bradley Center, Water Street restaurants, A little more pricey than some other hotels in the area, but not be a lot and it is a little more upscale. We would definitely return.
