Everything was actually very good. You get front staff could certainly use some training from older front desk staff on A customer service. They weren’t rude or anything just kind of indifferent.

We stay every year for a business symposium, and we always enjoy the stay there. The hotel improves every year. new additions, paint, maintenance and upgrades always on going. Really lovely, relaxing stay. Rooms well appointed and comfortable, quiet.

A classic old historical hotel to stay in. Very clean and bright. Room was refurbished and very nice. Window AC unit was somewhat loud. Upgrading rooms to split AC units would be nice. Love the old hotels with character such as this one. Check in staff was sort of slow but otherwise friendly enough. Parking was very tight and an extra $18 per night.

This is also a condominium therefore, you have resident neighbors, unusual. It is an old building (good) with old elevators and bathroom fixtures (not so good).

Old school, vintage feel. Very cool. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Great location. Walking distance to everything!! Highly recommend it!!

This is a charming place with beautiful public areas and a fun, vibrant restaurant. Our standard room was comfortable and had a terrific kitchenette. There was no breakfast service in the restaurant and the coffee packets in the room were pretty dismal. We walked a few blocks for "real coffee" and breakfast. The neighborhood is lovely and the weather was good, so no problem.

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.
