      Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Milwaukee City Center

      Every little thing costs extra

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Loved it!!

      from

      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.

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      from

      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.

      Great Stay!!!!

      from

      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 !

      from

      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.

      Big Mistake

      from

      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.

      Only Okay

      from

      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.

      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.

      We flew home on Sunday morning checking another set of friends off the 'single' list.

      ... worst we have encountered on the trip. Many holes aren't much smaller than the Grand Canyon. Fair dinkum you wonder where they spend the money, certainly not on road maintenance.

      Monday morning we fronted at House of Harley to have Snaps bike repaired and mine checked. Both gear lever splines were stripped, so both were replaced under warranty. On our way to Rochester via the Great River Road a little bit late than we would have liked, but with nice tight gear shifts.

It wasnt the Museum, it was the Harley headquarters. Afternoon buggered, headed to the summerfest to watch the Aerosmith concert we had pre booked. after a stinking hot day a cool change came thru, and we all nearly froze to death.

      ... experience that can make forty odd kids and 17 grown adults sit around a campfire crying their eyes out together. I would hazard that I spent a good week out of my five in tears ... It's special and unique and if you're not a koda, you'll probably think I'm being ridiculous/I've joined a cult but there is genuinely such a strong bond that forms over those five weeks. I wish I'd documented the things I'd learnt: about working with kids, teaching games ...
