Recent guest reviews

My first time at The Pfister Hotel. A first class historic downtown hotel, with a much more lively Friday evening buzz than I’ve seen at similar properties in other midwestern cities.

It is absolutely beautiful. Historic. Classy. The Blu Lounge had a fantastic view and the drinks were perfect. Likewise, dinner at the Mason Street Grill was exquisite. Delicious food (we had the New York Strip) and the waiter was professional, accommodating and very friendly. The room was beautiful and everything was immaculate. It is not cheap, but worth every penny!!

Very grand lobby. Excellent service by all staff members.

I liked the history of the property, pool on the top floor with views of the city and Lake Michigan.

I booked a room that was to include breakfast each morning. The reservation listed that as included. Hotel refused to honor it. The bathroom in our room had the same trash on the floor from the time we arrived until we left. Whip advertises as having air conditioning, it wasn’t available during our stay. Overall not a good experience for the amount paid and quality expected.

Unique, historic property. All tower views are amazing, but 23rd floor pool is the best. Seeing a full moon rise over Lake Michigan is unforgettable. Staff was top notch. Cant wait to stay again.

Beautiful historic property with excellent service. We loved Blu!!

The hotel was great, got double charged on my credit card for my stay and awaiting to hear back.

Historic and beautifully maintained hotel. Attentive staff. If you enjoy classic hotel experience, ask for room in original building instead of the tower.

Cool Pool, Nice Place, Ornate Fixtures on all the walls, cool painitings

Celebrated my husband's birthday. It was an amazing experience!

The Pfister is my favorite hotel in Milwaukee. However, I was very disappointed regarding my recent stay on November 24, 2018. I arrived at 4:30pm and I had to wait 2 hours before my room was ready. I was told I would get a call, but I had to keep going to the front desk to check. I was given a temporary room, but received a very nasty call from the front desk that I had to vacate that room immediately since my original room was ready. Given the inconvenience that I experienced, I didn't deserve that type of call.

Timeless and classic charm, comfortable beds pillows, you’ll never want to stay anywhere else in Milwaukee. I’m enchanted. Thank you.
