Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Milwaukee Downtown
My Boss Pick this place for me.
I travel for business every week and stay at all the major chains. This hotel is probably the most frustrating and problematic hotel I have ever experienced. The greatest problem was the room temp at night. To get a good nights sleep I need the room temp around 65 degrees F. Despite setting the room thermostat to 50 degrees F, opening the window (during February), putting a fan in front of the window blowing in cold air, turning off their heater/air conditioner I could not get the room below 70 and sometimes a lot higher than that. I ended getting up about 4 times a night, it was awful! The hotel also advertises wireless internet service. I attempted to link up with out any success. I contacted the front desk and was told that trouble hooking up is a common occurrence and she offered their hard wired service at the cost of $9/day. Pay for hardwired service when their wireless is not working??!! The Restaurant was also frustrating. Each day the server brought my entrée just after I started my salad. As she/he put it on the table they said that it was only going to get cold in the kitchen! It got cold on the table in front of me too. The MANDITORY valet service was equally as frustrating. Waiting 15 minutes for my car was not unheard of if there were a lot of people staying at the hotel and leaving in the morning. I never waited less than 10 minutes for my car. The valet service adds $10 a day to your room cost. Their room fee might seem frugal, but you have little choice if you need a car and that pushes the room cost up to the range of better hotels. The business traveler needs a facility that does not add to the challenges of working on the road.
While staying at the Holiday Inn, CD's, luggage, and a leather coat were taken from our vehicle. Don't leave valuables in the car while using the valet service.
Only Problem was getting a late check-out
Very clean hotel. The restaurant food and bar was good and the wait staff nice. Biggest PRO - Quiet Rooms!
I was in town to run the Milwaukee marathon and the front staff wouldn't give me a late check out. The other runners in the hotel all got a late check out with no problem. I talked to three different people at the front desk and got the run around on the late check out. I decided to just run and not worry about the late Sunday check out. No one cared. It was just an odd experience to have issues when others had none.
Great location for Bradley Center events. Easy to get to from the interstates. Very friendly staff and nice two room suite. The room was comfortable and quiet. Valet parking is free for Priority Club members. We would certainly stay again.
Holiday inn was a nice place to stay
the holiday inn had all the comforts of home-the staff is nice & the rooms
are comfortable but very small-we felt that we were overcharged because
it was a convention weekend & rooms were at a premium-if we were
charged their regular rate we would have been much more pleased with
the accomidations-its not worth $140 plus $20 tax on top of that rate-
Stayed at the Hoiliday Inn for Summerfest and really enjoyed the stay. The pool was small, but adequate for the amount of use of an outdoor pool. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. The lounge was great to hang out at before and after Summerfest. When we go again next year we will definetly stay here.
Great value for a classy hotel!
My husband and I stayed in a "corner suite". The room was beautiful with lots of amenities. The bed was very comfortable with down pillows and blankets. The bathroom was somewhat cramped but clean. Overall, it was a great deal for the money and we plan to stay there again.
Above average Holiday Inn
I stayed here for free on points.
The hotel is older (1980s?), but appears to be recently remodeled. Our room was clean, nicely decorated in typical businesslike Holiday Inn style, and quite comfortable. The location is fairly convenient for downtown activities, on the western edge of downtown proper. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
I would stay here again.
Really enjoyed our stay.
This hotel is very clean and comfortable. Friendly efficient staff, overall a very nice place to stay. Room was very clean and upscale, nice to have large TV, a coffeemaker & an ironing board in the room.
Average Hotel, Friendly Staff
Stayed here for two nights recently. My Priority Club number wasn't attached to the reservation despite my giving it to the person who took the reservation twice. Check-in was prompt and friendly, and the person who was at the desk gave me suggestions on getting around the area safely. The room was small compared to most of the Holiday Inns I've stayed in. The AC/heat controls weren't functional and the room was quite cold even having the temp set at 80 degrees. I called the desk several times during my stay for information and each time I received friendly, helpful responses. I arranged on Saturday night to have late checkout for Sunday at 2PM...had a do not disturb sign on the door, but at 12 noon was bothered by the housekeeper who attempted to open the room when I didn't answer the door right away. Wasn't able to get back to sleep (after quite a long night out, I was tired) so that put a damper on my Sunday. The housekeepers were very noisy, banging doors and talking loudly. The valet parking was nice, the attendants very quick and friendly. This is a good location and pretty easy to locate from the interstate highway. If it weren't for the negatives mentioned I would have enjoyed my stay much more.

After dinner we danced and drank the night away to live music then enjoyed arguably the most creative event of the night - Popcorn Bar! They had fresh popcorn wheeled out at about 10pm with assorted butters and salts to go with. It was a Midwestern heaven for Leah.
