Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Milwaukee
Nice Hotel, Good Stay at the Hyatt
This is a perfectly fine hotel to stay in right in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. I found my room to be spacious and clean with a great view, the staff was competent and friendly, and the room service food reasonable and tasty. Parking is now $15 a night, but this is average for any downtown area. We also enjoyed the lobby bar before going to a show.
Great staff,great location
The best thing about this Hyatt is the staff. These people really care about their guests experience and it shows. Rooms are fine, very clean. Ask for a high floor, better views.
The service was friendly and efficient too. The location is great for checking out downtown Milwaukee nightlife, theater and sporting events.
Don't bother renting a car. Just take the shuttle from the airport. Hyatt is within walking distance of any sight downtown. They even have an indoor skywalk to connect thru to a shopping mall or the convention center. Milwaukee has alot to see and do, especially in summer. We
went for Summerfest last year. Awesome festival.
Save your money
I was very disappointed. You pay a lot of money to stay there and it was no better than a cheap hotel. The atrium was nice, but everything else was nothing special. There was no inclusions and costed a fortune. Also the parking structure closes in the middle of the night until the morning so you have to go somewhere else and pay.
The entire hotel has a somewhat cold, sterile, uninviting feel to it that extends to the rooms. The window in the room is odd--it's a 3 foot wide rectangular band in the middle of the wall. The easy chair was uncomfortable and placed where it's hard to see the TV. Room decor is outdated and unappealing. Bathroom is on the small side. The bed was comfortable--it had a down mattress pad. There was no coffee maker in the room, but there was a large coffee brewing machine near the elevator on my floor that operated between 5:30am--11:30am only. Location is OK, but that applies to the other downtown hotels as well. Really, this hotel isn't bad, but most people would prefer a place that has a more inviting feel.
Hated the Hyatt
For the money they charge you to stay, the room was dirty, old, and run down.
We had a great stay!
We had a very nice experience during our five day stay. Rooms were updated, nicely decorated, very clean. The hotel was centrally located to enough restaurants, theaters and museums to find a lot to do. Check-in was speedy and friendly. Anytime we asked about local events, the front desk staff was very helpful with maps and assistance. Parking was great for only $10.50 a day (beats Chicago rates any day!). We would definately return to this location!
Hyatt + Milwaukee, WI = Fun
We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee from June 16th through June 20th, 2004. We have not stayed at a Hyatt before and this hotel was well above average. It was clean and the lobby/centrum was attractive. I noted the parking charge when we booked the room and sort of expected it for a downtown hotel. Sarah's coffeeshop in the lobby had a good selection of coffees, doughnuts, bagels, and muffins for a quick, inexpensive breakfast. We didn't try the breakfast buffet. The shop of sundries was small and there were very few drinks to choose from to take back to your room (sodas, water, or orange juice). At checkin, we were assigned a room on the 8th floor but we didn't like the view. The front desk was extremely accomodating by switching us to the 14th floor with a great view of a small park and the river. The hotel got quite full with a women's conference but it was never crowded. The room was average size but very clean. We didn't really like the flat (down?) pillows. We did not eat in the rotating restaurant at the top of the hotel. We chose to eat at Buca de Beppo (Italian), Water Street Brewery, and Rock Bottom Brewery. All were downtown. We took the $1 all-day trolley to explore the rest of the city when we didn't want to drive the car. The front desk recommended some sights and we saw the art museum, advertising museum, public museum, an IMAX film, and toured several breweries. Everyone was so friendly in the city and at the hotel, it was a fun trip.
Stiff but nice
All the Hyatts I ever stayed at have been nice. This one did not let me down. The atrium is quite nice, the staff are helpful and the rooms were comfy. There is a work out room but no pool. The parking for the hotel costs $10.50 and I thought they were exempt hotel guests but they don't. I ordered room service and even though they messed up my order the first time it was quite good. I would recommend the hotel for sure!
Best in downtown
I've stayed at most of the downtown hotels in MKE, and the Hyatt is the best...clean, spacious rooms, terrific location, and the best (only!) rooftop restaurant in town. Be sure to go up there after dark for a drink, it's a stunning view of the city. The rooftop restaurant also has one of the best Sunday brunches anywhere.
Fine hotel in a good location
I was recently back in Wisconsin for a conference at UW-Milwaukee and got a room through a discounter at the Hyatt. Particularly considering what I paid, I was very pleased. The hotel is in very good condition and my room was clean and very attractive. It's handy to the Old World Third Street places like Mader's and Usinger's and it's kitty-corner from the US Cellular Arena (the old Milwaukee Arena). It's very close to the Midwest Express Center and Bradley Center, too. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It will cost you about $11 a day to park in the ramp next door, but that's to be expected in a downtown hotel. I might have expected a pool, but they don't have one; the exercise room is small but has a nice west view of the Arena and courthouse. And, of course, it's known for the revolving restaurant on the top floor--I loved the view at night while nursing a drink there. I was very satisfield and would gladly stay there again.

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 …
Our travels have taken Kathy back to her childhood home. We ventured up into Michigan to visit Spring Lake. Our first stop was St. Mary's Church. We found out they tore down the original church. Where the church once stood sits a playground. The new church which stands on the other side of the old rectory, is modern and big. We met some very …
... probably about 2-3 miles. Nice walk, and nice area. Lots of potential and as Dick read in TripAdvisor, not as much action on River Walk. There are a few restaurants and bars, but mostly the backside of buildings. We stopped a few people to get directions and advice. One gentleman told us about the Third Ward where there were some restaurants and bars! The Third Ward is about a block off the River Walk.
Saw the Pedal Tavern, just like Cincinnati's Pedal Wagon. And, guess ...
... being the only large scale brewery left in the state.
The tour was free and informative. The brewery sits in the original location and dates back 150 years or so. The technology was amazing as were the 3 free beers at tours end.
Then a quick drive across town to a true Milwaukee bowling institution, called Landmark Lanes. This is a bowling alley first and foremost then a dive bar, pool hall, disco, live music ...
Well, yesterday was supposed to be a day off, but was it really? We spent most of the day in the bus, either on the road, which we arrived at 1:30PM, than an additional two hours waiting on rooms to be ready. By the time I finally got into my room, and got some things settled, I was ready to head out for a nice swim. I spent about an hour by the pool before coming back to the room to just unwind.
Today we are at a Ski ...
