InterContinental Milwaukee

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel needs to be renovated. The halls are dark and rooms are dated. Cheap coffee provided in room and TV was not great. The location is good and even in its current state the rooms are probably worth $80 a night but not the $200 plus that I paid. The restaurant is good and nothing bad happened.

It was good. I liked it. It's my favorite. I love it. It's soooo great. I'm in love w/ it.

This is an outstanding property at an affordable price, for a big city. The building and rooms are very nice. After you find your way out of the underground parking everything is easy. The desk staff was more than helpful. So many attractions, restaurants and shops are well within walking distance in, what appears to be, a safe and clean neighborhood right in the middle of town. I will stay here again.

The hotel is in a perfect location, gas a great restuarant and the staff is wonderful!

I'd rather stay anywhere else. Not impressed by the rooms.

Ended up having a guy in our room when we came back from lunch and shopping. He was shaving in our bathroom. Said he received a room key from his friend. Not sure what happened here but a major security issue here. The front desk assisted well and took care of us as best they could but very questioning about the hotel.. The hotel did accomodate us for everything and don't book with Orbitz. Orbitz was very much useless in handling the refund. Just a bad and crazy experience. We felt violated.

Overall Excellent Perfect location and other than the air conditioning the room experience was terrific. Within walking to everything we needed

I was very disappointed to check in and find out I was given a room with a King Bed when I selected 2 Doubles. The hotel gave us a rollaway bed; which pretty much felt like you were sleeping on a piece of wood. The lobby is beautiful but it appears that is what the hotel spent their money on as the rooms were quite outdated.

We chose Milwaukee to experience the art museum, The river walk, and the Citywide Market.

Modern, stylish hotel. We only stayed for a night but had a good experience. The TVs are dated but they work and that's all that matters to me. Asked for towels from room service around 530 and they arrived promptly. Would definitely stay here again.

Room is very clean, neat and comfortable. I stayed at a king size room and the bathroom was pretty good and big. Hotel located right in the center of the town and very easy to access to local shops and locations. Definitely recommend!

Great place to stay. Great view of the city from room 916. Friendly staff. It would have been nice to have a microwave and larger fridge in the room. Their bar named clear was nice to enjoy a cocktail. The hallways were a bit dingy looking and could use an update and the showers could have been nicer too

Meeting an old friend for dinner. The hotel was in a great location for both his apartment and dinner

The room was clean and comfortable. Parking was expensive in the lot.

Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Housekeeping staff loud in the hallways early in the morning and didn't bother leaving fresh towels. Mattresses on beds are old and extremely uncomfortable....could feel the springs through the bedding.

Overall very satisfied with our stay. Great accommodations and location, especially for the price. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone who asks.

Great location! Steps from old world 3rd, the PAC, tons of restaurants! The bed was surprisingly not that comfortable and no outlets by the bed, which was not practical for us. Great staff, would stay here again for the location.

Nice stay! Great location. Friendly staff. I thought it was a bit expensive, but I guess that's the going rate. Overall great experience.

I stay here 2-3 times per year. It's nice but pricy, but my other preferred hotel tends to be full when I book on short notice. This last stay we were unexpectedly upgraded from the cheapest room to a pretty swanky suite. The 24 hour gym means you can hit the sauna before bed.

Enjoyable. Near riverwalk bonus. very good bar service. comfortable rooms. quiet. I travel to Milwaukee monthly and will repeat.
