Wenn ich schon im Heimatland meiner Lieblingsmusik bin, muss ich natürlich unbedingt auch ein paar Konzerte in meinen Zeitplan pferchen. Das erste stand heute an, und so machte ich mich "schnell mal" (es waren nur zwei Stunden Fahrt, also ein Hauch von nichts) weiter nach Norden auf, nach Milwaukee im Bundesstaat Wisconsin.
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 also very unique. Visited the Cathedral of St John the ...
... as a lake. When we drove past Chicago, we wanted to be on Interstate 90/94 which goes through the city so we could see the skyline. However, we missed our exit and had to take Interstate 294 which put us west of the city. No Chicago skyline this trip. We arrived in Milwaukee at 7:00 local time. After we checked in and got settled, we walked over to Maders, a famous German Restaurant. The food was good. We had a traditional German meal - sausage and ...
... forward to a lot more Down time and off the bike sight seeing. I hope the travel pod system worked and it was easy to follow - I didn't see all the postings and comments people made but as I'm able to view them on a full computer I'll be sure to comment back, I've been doing the updates on my IPAD and don't have access. Thanks for following along as the "Last Corner" has now been conquered. Next year "the Principalities of Europe". Thanks again, ...
... to act as sponges for grease. There are few foods that do not include sugar and that is true for meats, cheese, coleslaw and salad. Packing up your leftovers in a restaurant makes sense if it then forms the basis of meals for the coming week but it is all to apparent that it more usually becomes a midnight snack. Confusingly it tastes really good... Oh what to do... Oh temptation you are my downfall. Mind you, we still blend in here and look quite small, compared to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn Towne Hotel Milwaukee
Fine if you are on a budget
Outside of the fact that the room was very small, it wasn't much different than a standard room in most any hotel. The view was poor, but I've had terrible views when paying upwards of $250 a night. It is definitely a vertical motel, but it does have free wireless internet. You can't get that at some of the pricey hotels. Overall, it was perfectly fine for sleeping and storing my belongings while I was out and about. I wasn't looking for a spa retreat, so I was happy to save about $50 per night compared to the Hyatt a block away. The room and bath were clean and pretty well maintained. The staff was helpful. The only drawback was the water pressure in the shower was EXTREMELY low. Don't plan to stay more than 1-2 nights if you want to wash your hair.
We just returned from our 2 night stay at the Best Western. The location is wonderful!! The whole purpose of our trip was to attend Milwaukee's annual Summerfest and right outside the hotel was a shuttle stop that takes you directly to the grounds! There is also a pretty big mall right across the street which was great since I was traveling with 3 teenage girls and myself! The rooms were average. A little bit on the small side but they were clean and they provide you with a mini fridge and good climate control. Except for the renovations going on, the hallways and lobby were exceptionally clean as well. We didn't get the chance to visit the lounge but they advertised a free drink when you purchased one with your room key. All in all, I would say if I am in the Milwaukee area again for Summerfest I would stay at the Best Western again for the price ($79.00/night) and proximity to the grounds.
My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. I booked through Expedia and got an unbelievable rate. The room was very tiny and there was no view, as we were at the rear of the hotel looking out on a deserted building next door. The room was especially small because we requested only one bed--a queen. However, these drawbacks were outweighed by the positive aspects. The room was clean and there was daily maid service. The location was very convenient with restaurants, conference center, shopping mall, the public museum and public library all within an easy walk. Also, it is a very short walk to the theater district. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, cheerfully giving us directions, advising on restaurants, and calling cabs for us. The hotel restaurant offered a broad menu. We only ate breakfast there, but the service was good, the food was good, and the prices were cheap. I loved the historic aspect of the hotel. Look for the antique mail slot in the hallways. There was only one ice/vending area and it was in the basement, but there truly is no room to put these on every floor. It was very cozy, but the staff really sold us on this hotel. We would definitely stay again!
My room at the Best Western was extremely small. Good service and decent location in a very blue collar city. The price was ok and parking is close by. If you're on a tight budget and want something near downtown Milwaukee this may be an acceptable choice, but probably not the best one.
A bonafide dump!
This place is an absolute DUMP! The room are small and cramped. The heat does not shut off and the windows do open so it becomes a horrible hotbox. Coffee maker doesn't work. smoke alarm hanging by a wire, filthy carpet, thin towels. Everthing about this place is sub par.
very awful place and a deceptive account of where it is located. It is no where near the Third Ward. Dirty and old.
Reserving directly through the Best Western website, we received a corporate rate of less than $65 per day. That's so far below the government lodging allowance for Milwaukee that we expected the worst.
We just returned from a 6 night stay at this hotel and we are PLEASED to report our stay was great. The staff were all friendly and helpful; even going out of their way to call for bus routes and times for us.
The room we had on the 11th floor had a nice view with 3 large windows.
The room itself was larger then we were expecting and its furnishings were modern and clean. We ate breakfast at the resturant 3 days and it was good[not great]; but the price was right. We would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to the downtown Milwaukee area. It's close to everything and priced better then its big named neighbors.
Not even 1 star
I thought it was horrible. I got it from AAA in their travel book and it said that it was 3 stars! Not even close, they must not have looked at the hotel in a few years. Small, stuffy rooms, service is okay, but it's not what I expected when I pulled into the hotel.
I booked a room at this hotel through a web site. Five days after I booked it, and received confirmation from the hotel, I received an email from someone at the hotel that they would not honor my reservation because the service they use to make online reservations was not supposed to sell their rooms on that day. I tried to explain to customer service that I had a confirmation from the hotel, but they were not helpful at all. If that is the way they are going to treat customers before they ever get to the hotel, I would hate to see how they treat you once you are there.
