Hampton Inn & Suites Milwaukee Downtown
Travel Blogs from Milwaukee
We got up about 8:00 and went to breakfast in the lobby. It was quite a spread with cereal, yogurt, fruit, juices, omelets, bagel toppers, bacon, hot oatmeal, muffins and waffles. Derek and I got bagel toppers which were half a bagel with eggs, cheese, and bits of bacon on top. Larry got an omelet. After breakfast Derek had a shower etc. At 9:45 we …
We got up in time to have a great breakfast at Pleasant View B & B. Mike fixed our breakfast and served it in the dining room which had all windows facing the lake, a very "pleasant view." We had cinnamon french toast with a banana and strawberry sauce. Delicious! There was also two sausage patties, fruit cup, OJ and coffee (for Larry). After …
... back to the Hyatt from 3 to 5 for what will be the high light of the trip for Bob - Germany's 7-1 win over Brazil in the World Cup semi-final. There were several interesting restaurants six blocks from the Hyatt but with all the walking we had done we decided to go across the street to an Italian place. It was a good choice as we both enjoyed our meals. Kathy had cheese cannelloni and Bob had chicken ...
... the original school had been replaced. Our final stop was Kathy's old house. It was still there but almost completely hidden by trees and hard to see. Like they say you can't go home again. Thankfully, you can keep home in your memory. Heading back south to continue our trip to Milwaukee we stopped at Warren Dunes State Park. This is a beach on Lake Michigan. There were lots of bathers and an incredibly high dune. Lake Michigan looks like an ocean ...
... I would be behind most of the rough stuff. I had a couple hundred miles to get to the Iowa border and while boring the NE plains were an easy ride. Everything about the ride changed shortly after hitting the Iowa border - Either I caught up to the weather or some new fronts found me. I got hit with a torrential down pour and then was pushed off the road by some nasty wind gusts! I was able maintain control of my bike but knew I could not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites Milwaukee Downtown
Mir gefällt dieses Hotel sehr. Es ist angenehm, sich in der Lobby aufzuhalten. Das ist genau das, was ich von einem Hotel erwarte, ohne dass man den Preis wie in einem Fünf-Sterne-Hotel bezahlen muss. Das Zimmer war wie in einem Embassy Suite, das Bad in der Mitte, und ein Schlafzimmer und ein Wohnzimmer. Ausgezeichneter Service. Der Pool sah cool aus, war auf Straßenebene an einer belebten Straße in Milwaukee. SEHR ANGENEHM!
Location, location, location. This Hampton Inn is located in downtown Milwaukee, within walking distance from some great restaurants and major shopping (it's right across the street from the mall). My room was large - a 2 room suite. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean.
No pool yet!!
This hotel does not have its pool up and running yet despite what it says on their website. What a disappointment for our kids. There should have been a warning on the website that the pool wasn't yet opened. It's dishonest.
When we made the reservation, the property was a Howard Johnson. When we arrived it seemed to be part HoJo and part Hampton Inn.
Stayed at this Hojo with a group of guys in town for a baseball outing-so basically a place to crash after the game and bar-hopping downtown. Have stayed here before and it was what it was-one of the lower priced hotels downtown. Rooms were typically larger than average, clean, but nothing fancy. After making the reservation, I read in the milwaukee journal sentinal that this hotel was being renovated and would soon be a Hampton Inn. Upon arriving to the hotel, the construction was obvious. The front entrance had been moved and was poorly marked. The check in was located on the 6th floor in the hotel's ballroom. Only one elevator served the hotel during the construction. Despite their temporary location in the ballroom, checkin was smooth and I went to the two rooms and found them to be newly renovated. Both rooms were suites with two beds and a seperate living area with a couch. The bedding was much improved compared to my previous stays, and the overall decor of the rooms was much brighter and modern than previously.
This run-down, poorly managed hotel has far too many issues. While many people will be attracted with the location, this is a poor excuse for a downtown mid-line hotel.
We had a great stay. Our room was large (including the bathroom), the beds were comfy, the day staff were great (evening / night staff seemed a bit young / un-professional, but no real concerns), and the breakfast was impressive for a continental!
It was clean and the location was great! If your going to Milwaukee for pleasure or stopping by for a day or two, I highly reccomend checking out Summer Fest (beginning of July)! The river walk was a bit over-rated and built up to be more than it really is, but over-all our brief stay in Milwaukee was nice and the Howard Johnson Express was a much welcomed break in the middle of a long journey!
Don't stay here
This run-down barely adequate hotel is wildly overpriced. There are many cheaper, better alternatives. The rooms are VERY small, the front desk personnel rude and uninformed, and the hotel itself shabby. It is in a good location, but the location does not warrant the price. If you do decide to stay here, do NOT book through the Howard Johnson site. It does not offer the best rate (and its "best rate" offer is bogus). Go to (---) for hotel deals.
Can't beat the location
Central Milwaukee location, clean and well kept rooms. Walking distance to shops and bars.
A good stay for a reasonable price.
Nice place, within walking distance, staff was friendly and attentive.
