This whole property is unique from the decor to the rooms. Love it.

We loved the look and feel of the hotel. The location was great. There is so much to do within walking distance.

We waited a additional hour for our room check in because it wasnt ready and the restaurant wasnt open for supper.I cant beliexe you charge 20 dollars to rent a movie come on really. The room was very nice it is a nice place

Great location common areas very nice, staff was friendly. Did not like that the room was dirty water stains and hard water stains around bathroom and tile. Also large corner of the drywall by the bed was damaged and crumbling. They also put us on the 6th floor next to a birthday party with people drinking Loud DJ and not being socially distanced. Party went on till at least 11 people then hung out in the hallway so we couldn’t get to sleep there was also a gap between the door and the hallway so it was even more noisy. It worth $240 a night in a long shot I used $50 orbucks also. St. Kate way nicer and cheaper.

Really neat and modern. We were disappointed that the bars and restaurants were all closed.. no room service.

Bar and restaurant have reduced hours. Staff friendly, room was clean, no mini-bar but did have coffemaker.

Best hotel I’ve stayed at for awhile, at a great price

Amazing décor and welcoming service. The staff was extremely helpful and fast. The King suite overlooking downtown MKE was by far worth the price, the city lights just made for a spectacular view.

Great option if you are looking for an interesting place to hang out. Vibrant outdoor restaurant / bar filled with the friendly people Wisc is know for!

Very cool, historic hotel with excellent, attentive staff.

Great views, convenient location. Parking easy and affordable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Some noise was noticeable in the room.

Close to downtown, the Basilica, the Harley Davidson Museum, the markets and ethnic restaurants. All POI's were just a 5 minute drive away.

Rooms are excellent. Staff was welcoming and very helpful

Beautiful hotel with comfortable rooms. The staff was very friendly. Parking was easy and convenient. The beds were super comfortable. I enjoyed free yoga on Sunday morning, but I would have loved options other than wine at 10:00 AM. I also thought the carpet “celebrating Teddy Roosevelt’s big game hunting” (there was a little plaque) was forced and insensitive. The carpet was fine, but there was no need to glorify hunting exotic animals. Overall though, it’s a beautiful hotel and we really enjoyed the stay.

It was very beautiful and clean but I'm upset that I didn't get my room that I payed you for on Orbitz.You booked it and I payed extra for my reservation so you took money from me for something I never got.Very disappointed in your service.

Beautifully decorated. Rooms are great, stylish and comfortable. The best hotel I’ve stayed at in a long time. A wonderful surprise!!!

Very clean. Very polite and helpful staff from each aspect of the hotel. Unique surroundings. A wee bit load at night.
