      Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn Milwaukee Downtown

      Excellent hotel and location

      from

      Our family of four stayed here for 1 night while dropping off some family at the Milwaukee airport. We found the location to be very good, and the rooms large and clean. Our room was not ready when we arrived around 12:30 pm. but they did take our bags so we could walk around. The studio room had a big kitchen area including full fridge and popcorn. The full breakfast was nice. We would definitely stay here again.

      As far as things to do in the are, the mall is right around the corner, alhtough most of the shops are not open late. We had dinner at the Safe House, which the kids loved (a cool spy themed restaurant). The food was decent, but it's all about the atmosphere. The next morning, we took in a Milwaukee Brewers game on the way home.

      Spend the extra $$$

      from

      We spent two nights here and had a great experience. The room was large, clean and comfortable. It's walking distance to the SummerFest grounds and you can catch a bus to Miller Park right on Wisconsin Ave. We will go back the next time we're in Milwaukee. The only complaint is we seemed to get noise from outside the outside the hotel (traffic, etc.) so it might be worth getting an interior room or a riverview room to minimize the possibility of this.

      Great place!

      from

      Perfect hotel near everything. Great rooms, super nice people, wonderful breakfast. Took the ferry over from Muskegon, MI. What a treat.

      Excellent location

      from

      We spent 7 consecutive nights here in December 2004, so we got a good taste of this property. It is very attractive, in a historic building, and has some nice photos of old Milwaukee on the walls. This hotel is desigend for extended stays, and usually caters to people doing business, on long term assignments, etc. in dowtown Milwaukee. These folks (like we were) want a good night's sleep, a quiet breakfast, good internet connection, and a nice happy hour, which the hotel offers. The breakfast is ample and the happy hour has hearty snacks, beer and wine during the work week. There is no swimming pool, which was not an issue for us at all. They have a good workout room, which we used. The first few days were perfect. Then for some reason the hotel filled up with families with small children, and things went downhill. Toddlers in diapers and shrieking children do not belong at happy hour. This is my only complaint. The hotel seems very savvy--I suggest they put people with kids on perhaps the lower floors, and keep maybe the top 2 floors for adults only. This would really help the many folks that need the quiet and are in a work mode. If they can solve this, they would be pretty much perfect!

      Convenience and Space in Downtown Milwaukee

      from

      Located on the top floors of the old Gimbel's (later Marshall Field's) dept. store, the Residence Inn offers great value for the location! We paid $119. a night for a Nov. weekend. Our huge corner suite on the 7th. Floor overlooked Wisconsin Ave. at the River ... what a stunning view! Lots of room for two - or even four people - for sleeping! And room enough for a cocktail party for twenty! The kitchen was a real kitchen - not a 3' X 5' area with a mike! Lots of hot water in the kitchen and in the nice bath; good towels and toiletries; lots of storage room. The staff are very nice, and the breakfast is above average. We did have three issues that detracted from our overall experience: a very lumpy mattress; low-end sheets and blankets; and the noise of the outside traffic over the metal bridge. A strong **** if you can get a good deal!

      Nice, Quiet, Reasonably Priced

      from

      Stayed over weekend from 11/12/04-11/14/04. Check in smooth and can pull in off street to check in. Parking in underground garage right around the corner for $10.00 a night (through the hotel). Rate is very reasonable and the staff is helpful. Rooms clean with full kitchen and the hotel was very quiet. Complimentary buffet breakfast included eggs, sausage, and waffles. I think the couch in the living room area was a pull-out, and if so, would be a good place to stay with kids. Good location and within walking distance of most dowtown attractions. Plankinton Shops/Grand Avenue right across the street and can walk all the way to the Hyatt Regency through Grand Avenue Mall and an interior pedestrian walkway. Casino shuttle stops on every 1/2 hour right in front--driver told me that Residence Inn is usually the second to last pickup going to the casino and first or second drop coming back (i.e., it's pretty quick).

      This is a very nice hotel with a full kitchen.

      from

      I was looking for a hotel with a full kitchen in Downtown, Milwaukee. At last I did. It has a nice room, with the hotel staff friendly. Next time I will take this place. That`s for sure.

      Relaxing stay at the Residence

      from

      Stayed here the night before my wedding with the rest of the groomsmen.

      Very comfortable and relaxing. The rooms were clean, bed was firm, and the floor to ceiling windows and views of the city are amazing. Good comfort, good value...overall a nice place to stay if in Milwaukee.

      This ain't a highway offramp-style Residence Inn---classy!

      from

      Great Place! We chose to stay here based on trip advisor reviews. Glad we did. Tall ceilings and a noble heritage as an former Milwaukee department store. Half the price of the "marquee" names in town. Nice!

      HUGE rooms with full kitchenette--even in-room popcorn, and a lovely free breakfast (think DIY belgian waffles). We stayed new years eve (passing through town) and were impressed the management even passed out fliers saying rowdy hotel parties would not be tolerated. Great little find.

      Historic building in a great city!

      from

      This is no ordinary Residence Inn! The historic building sits in a perfect downtown location where Wisconsin Ave meets the Milwaukee River. This building used to be a Gimbels/Marshall Fields dept store and has been completely renovated with style. High ceilings with a wall of floor to ceiling windows overlook the beautiful Riverwalk and some have lake views, too. Ask for (east) river view but not the (top) eighth floor which has obstructed views. It is like having your own urban loft in the city with living area and full kitchen suites per usual R'Inn standards. Offices occupy the lower floors and a Borders Books just opened on the first floor with their cafe on the Riverwalk. Lots of great restaurants and pubs outside your door. Keep the car in the underground garage and walk everywhere. A very nice property in a great city!
