Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Milwaukee City Center
Every little thing costs extra
We stayed at this Milwaukee Hilton for a week. It was vastly overpriced for the quality. The hotel lobby is pretty. The room was small, but fairly clean. It was quite noisy, both from outside and from the neighboring rooms and corridor. There were only a few channels on the TV. You have to pay $10 per day per person to be able to use their pool or hot tub (more on weekends). The sheets were a little too small and forever pulling off the bed if one should shift position. The parking was very expensive. Local phone calls are expensive and charged extra by the minute once you reach 30 minutes. The exercise room was nice. The hot water was unreliable (sometimes lukewarm).
Not worth the money
Nice lobby, good location, good service, and nice amenities. However, small room, tiny bathroom, sagging bed, and a view of a brick wall. The "waterpark" isn't really a waterpark, though little ones will enjoy it. You're paying for the location, not the quality of the room.
My son and I went along for fun while my husband attended an EPRI conference near the hotel. The indoor waterpark was perfect for a five year old and there were more than enough lifeguards always present. Unless you stay within a busy time of year don't waste your money on the Waterpark Package. We paid $10 per day for the waterpark. Our room was small but clean. The restroom needed a fan, and there was limited counter space. The staff was helpful and courteous. There is an Applebee's and a very nice enclosed Downtown Mall within walking distance. The Betty Brinn Children's Museum and Milwaukee Art Museum are just a 10 minute drive away. If you have small children I would definitley recommend staying here!
Tiny room and noisy.
We had a stay with government rate through 1-800-hhonors. Both of us are Gold VIP members and supposely deserve VIP service. We got a room with king bed on the 11th floor. The room itself was tiny. The carpet was ugly. The bathroom was clean but tiny, not event a vent, drying light. There were dust on the desk. The wall was thin we could hear everything from the hallway. Late at night, we could hear drunks coming back from the bars making noise in the hallway. Overall, it reminds me of those springbreak properties down in Florida where we once stayed during college years. There isn't a swimming pool in the hotel besides the "waterpark". The waterpark was very tiny, apparently there wasn't any capacity control. I wouldn't use it personally for health reason. The breakfast buffet was good though. Although the selection is limited, the fruits were fresh.
Very nice stay
My girlfriend and I stayed one night after going out to an excellent dinner at Pieces Of Eight by the lake. We found it quite above average.
The room was comfortable and a decent size. The bathroom was spotless and the warming/drying lamp was a nice touch. For the reviewer who claims that there is nothing to do during the day in Milwaukee I guess she missed the Museum, the Art Museum, IMAX Theater, The Grand Ave Mall, and the variety of restaurants downtown. The water park is geared towards kids and their parents but we still enjoyed it. And the best thing of all was the wonderfully delicious blueberry pancakes with loads of fresh blueberries! We'll be back just for them.
Unlikely to return.
Definitely not recommended. Rooms, though large, are dimly lit. No broadband access in the rooms, despite my having calling beforehand to confirm that there was. Guaranteed a king and not given a king. Front desk acted as if they could care less....."well...you're not really guaranteed anything" was the response. parking is inconvenient, particularly if you have a lot of luggage.
We stayed at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center for 2 weeks. We were in Milwaukee for the 100th Anniversary of Harley Davidson. We had a fabulous stay! Not one complaint the hotel was perfect. Very Clean, Large Rooms, Plenty of Parking, and Friendly Staff. What More Do You Need?
Loved the Hilton !
The hotel and rooms were clean. The Cafe served great food and marvelous, friendly servers. The buffets were varied and the pizzas were superb. The Hilton has a walkway to the convention center. The only thing lacking was a " people mover " for those who have difficulty walking longer distances. Close to shopping; convenient to highways.
We had a horrible stay due to no available parking, we had to drag our lugguge through other parking garages and alleys to get to the hotel.
There was a wedding party on our floor we could not sleep at all all night. Confusion and chaos among staff. Never again.
Myself and my boyfriend visited the Hilton for the May bank holiday weekend. The hotel lobby is lovely and the staff are very nice. We had a King room, but were very disapointed in the room itself. We paid $130 for each night but the room was not worth it, this also included entry to the water park (which is only for children, so we never went in)The room was very shabby and outdated. We could hear the people in the room next door to us turning on the shower and also them using the bathroom!! The walls seemed very thin and it just so happened that we had very noisy neighbours across the hall that spent most of the time screaming and shouting. The overall feel of the room was that we were staying in a cheap motel. Also Milwaukee has nothing to do during the day to pass time. We would never return to Milwaukee Wisconsin ever again.

... is serious about its recycling at least in the rest areas! Talk about being very specific about sorting your recycled items. Inside the rest area, they had a dirt track bike. Dave Standen, this photo is for you. Dick said that you used to go to dirt track races in Wisconsin! Arrived in Milwaukee after being on the road for about 6.5 hours. After getting settled, we drove down to the Milwaukee River Walk going past Marquette University. Got a good walk ...
Drove 401 miles in 6.5 hours on day 1. Explored the city on day 2.
After the long drive we were pretty exhausted. Luckily we managed to find a great Somali restaurant a block from the hotel for our dinner. Great spicy food for real cheap...still paid for from our casino haul the previous night, even sweeter.
Woke up to another ****** day weather wise but we went into town anyway. The ...
... Alpine Ridge in East Troy, WI. The venue is nice as in it is a really nice looking venue, but it is also all wood, with a low ceiling height. It is amazing how fluid out load-ins are becoming now that we are thirty shows into the tour. Again, we had a short, and very awkwardly placed dock, so the main LED wall did not get started until after noon. With all of that said, we were still able to sound check at 4:30PM as planned. ...
... 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 ...
... very hot in the afternoon so we headed off to the HD hotel - Iron Horse Hotel which was a warehouse which has been beautifully converted. Lunch was good and it was interesting watching all the comings and goings.
Back towards the hotel and stopped off at the mall - Sean and I had pedicures - what a treat after so many days in boots and a hair trim for me.
Sean spent the afternoon, swapping over foot ...
