Spacious room, good amenities, daily cleaning service, walkable to downtown.

They stay was awesome, the house keepers came everyday to clean my room, the front desk receptionist was nice, didn't have any problems that they could not fix. Loved it there. Only problem was my mom came with here service dog & they denied her to visit me which is very illegal other then that l enjoyed the stay.

Beautiful room! Me and my bridesmaids had a blast and we so comfortable

Centrally located within walking distance of many things. The friendliness of the staff, reasonably priced delicious meals at the hotel restaurant, 24/7 access to a great workout facility and on site parking. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Milwaukee.

We had some really noisy neighbors last night at 3am but everything else was great!

Room is spacious and has great amenities. The fireplace is great.

Hotel is in great location. Rooms are simple and clean. The only negative about the whole experience is that the walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors talking.

Quirky, warm, sweet staff. Great fit for us! The options are endless. If we have more time next time, we will eat there as well. Good option and a nice addition

Room is a little outdated, but good enough for a few nights. Room service never came to make up room. I'm not sure if that is common in this hotel or not. Maybe you have to specifically request it? Specific instructions were not stated anywhere.

We had the 2 bedroom suite, room 325. It was amazing. It was a very large 2 bedroom apartment. Complete with a library and an office. 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen stocked with all the extras a kitchen needs. The living room had a fire place, directv and a huge sectional that could easily sleep 2 people. It also had laundry machines in the apartment! The master bedroom had a walk in closet the size of a bedroom and a nice bathroom attached. It was just amazing. We will be staying here, and requesting this particular room, every time we come to Milwaukee! The pictures online did not do the room justice at all.

Rooms have nice amenities, is roomy, charming, decorated sinks in bathroom. Art Deco design.

It was not an ornately decorated hotel. The room felt like it could have been a old studio apartment at one time which was neat. The elevators and halls felt like they were from the 50s. Interesting looking. You get a physical key so make sure you don't forget to lock the door!

The room was in terrible shape, the walls need new paint, rust came out of the bathroom faucet, the carpet is old and warn, the drapes were stained, the future was shabby. There was often none at the front desk. I would never stay there again,
