Second Day in Milwaukee

A travel blog entry by bobkat68


Had breakfast at the Hyatt.  Walked around downtown Milwaukee for 4 and half hours.  Saw a lot of interesting old buildings. Our favorite is City Hall which is in the process of being restored. Outside architectural features are very elaborate. It was built in the Flemish style similar to elaborate city halls in Holland and Germany.  Inside was also very unique.  Visited the Cathedral of St John the ...

Walk Down Memory Lane

A travel blog entry by bobkat68


... as a lake. When we drove past Chicago, we wanted to be on Interstate 90/94 which goes through the city so we could see the skyline. However, we missed our exit and had to take Interstate 294 which put us west of the city. No Chicago skyline this trip. We arrived in Milwaukee at 7:00 local time. After we checked in and got settled,  we walked over to Maders, a famous German Restaurant.  The food was good.  We had a traditional German meal - sausage and ...

The North Platte Challenge aka "the final voyage"

... these winds. (While rain is a nuisance on a bike - wind gusts are your arch enemy). Fortunately, I was very near a rest stop and was able to pull off into the rest stop. I Donned my heavy rain gear and waited for the winds to subside for about 30 mins. This turned out to be a smart move- just 15 minutes down the road a semi trailer was blown on to its side by the leading edge of that same front that pushed me off the road. The entire ...

Happy Days in Milwaukee

A travel blog entry by sheilarickbevis


... and sat on lots of models. It is a way of life for many and that concept was expressed clearly through the exhibits, films and people who were visiting! We met one man who wore a Triumph t shirt so we had a chat ...of course!There were three questions in my mind before our visit to HD. "Why buy one?", "Why on earth would you buy one?" And "Why in God's name would you buy one?" In the end, none of that matters and I must conclude that if I was American and lived here I would ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Airport Milwaukee

    Stinky Room!


    The room had a terrible smell. It smelled like B.O. I called to get a room change and they wouldn't do it. So I called for some room freshener. They came and sprayed but it didnt' last. I don't think I'll stay here again.

    Great Location but they block websites!!!


    Imagine a hotel that offers free wirless but blocks websites (e.g. gambling or anything deemed remotely pornographic). Confirmed by management, it was a morality choice made by their conscious decision. They will not allow guests to view anything questionable in their own rooms. (I wish I was kidding.) By the way, websites to horror movies and other violent themes were easily reachable. Very shameful.

    Looks creepy, feels cozy


    The Clarion is an older property, huge and rambling. The building has that discomforting institutional appearance, like a mental hospital.

    Great Experience!


    We had a very early flight out of Milwaukee and decided to stay at the Clarion the night before. The hotel's physical facility is nothing special, but the staff was wonderful! Everyone we encountered, from the front desk people to the shuttle drivers, were friendly, helpful, and courteous. We took advantage of the Park & Fly rate, and it worked like a charm! As it was, we flew back into Milwaukee during a major snowstorm and ended up staying another night at the Clarion because the interstate was impassable. Again, they were really helpful -- even upgraded us to a King suite. Overall, staying at this hotel was a wonderful experience!

    Clarion: Milwaukee - Mitchell International

    A gem near Mitchell Airport


    I recently stayed at this hotel and was quite pleased with my experience. My queen sized room was on the small side, but it was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was polite and the hotel has gated parking for a fee cheaper than the airport ($7.50 per day). The 24-hour shuttle was quick and efficient as well. I didn't use the free Continental breakfast, but it looked decent enough (doughnuts, muffins, coffee and juice).

    I haven't stayed at a Clarion before, but I would recommend this property for sure.

    Very nice hotel close to airport


    After looking at the (negative) reviews for Radisson and Sheraton 4 Points, I decided not to go with Hotwire or Priceline (which has them as 3 stars, see lists on betterbidding). Instead I booked directly with the Clarion for a rate of $69 (Fri), and am glad I trusted the Clarion's (positive) reviewers.

    An Honest Hotel, by far


    We fly into Milwaukee quite often on our way to visit family. We've stayed at the Clarion a number of times. It is right outside of the airport property, very convenient. Yes, it is a chain hotel, but very clean, spacious rooms. We stayed here just last month on a Fri. - our way in, and again on Sun. night on our way back out. My husband accidentally left his credit card at the desk, imagine my surprise when a few hours after we arrived home our credit card company called me in Florida to tell me the Clarion was holding our card, and how did we want to handle getting it back? When I called the Clarion about our card, the woman who answered was very kind, dropped my card in the mail the same day (the company put a "hold" on our card till we got it back) and we received it 2 days later. Honest people, I'd say! Be prepared to pay to use a microwave ($.50) to pop your machine-bought popcorn! Had never seen that one before. This is by far the most convenient hotel to the airport.

    Nice hotel, would recommend


    Overall, it's just a chain hotel and not spectacular, but it was very clean and the front desk personnel were very friendly. They were very polite and gave directions to quite a few places for me, as I just had one night to drive around and see the area. The room was nice and as expected, but I travel frequently and have come to not take things for granted. I would recommend this hotel to others.

    Good for business travelers


    A clean place to lay your head and safely leave your car for up to two weeks while you go somewhere more exciting! The Clarion provides an excellent parking place for your car, fenced in with gate attendants. They have a free shuttle to Gen. Mitchell and quick pickup upon your return. I've stayed there on five separate occasions and have always received excellent service.
