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, ...
... which was evident when he played alone. Both Tom and I wanted him to play"Beware of Darkness" by George Harrision, but that was not to be. It was a substantial show lasting about one and one half hours. Leon only stood at the end of the regular show and "this is the time in the show where we're supposed to walk off stage then return. Well, for those of you that know me I don't like to walk." He then played a few encore songs and left the stage. A very good ...
... we saw today were very dodgy. I'm sure there will be nicer spots somewhere ....... This afternoon we saw a row of houses and the font doors are really close to the road. The mother sat on her front steps and the twin babies were in their capsules just sitting a couple of feet away in the middle of the footpath - with their dad! After a quick shower Al and Carol and Rich and I decide to go ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Milwaukee Airport & Convention Center
There is nothing even remotely positive to say about this hotel. I was given a smoking room after being guaranteed a non-smoking room. Even though the hotel is huge, I was told that there were no non-smoking rooms available when I called to request another room. Finally, after I would not give in, I was moved to a handicap accessible room which did not smell quite as bad. I wonder if they have any non-smoking rooms at all. The walls are paper thin here, and at around 9:00 p.m. the person in the next room got into an argument with someone and proceeded to yell the "f" word for the next 20 minutes. Not long after that, as I was changing clothes, three people opened my room door with a key and came into the room. They were embarassed and quickly left. I called the desk and the staff member simply said that the computer showed my room empty. She practically demanded to know where the other guests had gone, as if that were my problem! I asked to speak to the manager and was told that she would call me right back. Forty-five minutes later, the front desk supervisor, not the manager called me. She sounded like a teenager, and said that she would reduce my rate for the "inconvenience". I told her that changing rooms was an inconvenience, but having people walk in on me was inexcusable. She then asked me to hold while she looked into something. She never came back on the line, and never called back when I hung up after 20 minutes. The next morning when I checked out, my bill was "not ready" and I was told that I would be mailed a receipt. I was not about to let them charge my credit card without seeing what I was being charged, so they said they would hold the charges until I flew back into town at the end of the week. When I returned, they did not have the receipt ready as promised. After waiting quite awhile, they printed a receipt which had so many different charges and adjustments listed that I could not tell what I had actually been charged. The desk attendant couldn't figure it out either. Finally, the bill was adjusted to reflect a $50 discount, though I shouldn't have been charged anything for this horrible experience. Although it's right across the street from the airport, the convenient location is not worth the experience. It's a great way to get your trip off to a bad start.
Park N Fly ok, room not great
We stayed here one night before we flew out on vacation using the park and fly for $109 including 15 days of parking. The hotel was busy and the front desk staff was slow. The lady who checked us in remarked to someone else she couldn't find a non-smoking room (which we reserved.) She didn't say anything to us, and handed us our keys. We found the room to be in need of repair and a smoking room. We were not told it was a smoking room, but it had ashtrays and the bedding smelled of smoke. We left our car here, and thankfully it was not broken into while we were gone. I don't think I would stay here again.
The front desk was slow and not very courteous. We booked a non-smoking two double bed room, and at check-in the best they could do was a smoking king suite with a rollaway. The floor had cold wet spots in living area. Would definitely not recommend.
We found the room on Hotwire and the place was OK. I've stayed there a few times before. Large with many wings. Dated rooms but OK. We were flying to CA for the week and they convinced us to park at the hotel for $5 a night which is cheaper than the airport. Sounds good to me. When we returned there had been an ice storm and it was very cold. The shuttle pulls up to our car and the first thing I see is the black plastic bag covering the passengers window. I hop out and inspect it. The door frame was damaged and the radio was ripped out. We went to confront the manager and he actually tried to hide from us stating it was not their responsibility, we signed a waiver in the contract. I asked him to produce the contract and they could not find it. He offered us no help whatsoever and eventually walked off. The girl at the counter was helpful and embarrassed by the managers actions. We talked to the security guy and he said that cars are broken into every week. The owners were supposed to put in video monitors but had never gotten around to it.
Pleasant Stay at the Four Points Sheraton Airport
This is a pleasant enough hotel in a location very convenient to the airport and southside of Milwaukee. Staff was nice, room was quite large, although somewhat hard to find, the place is laid out a little strange. Could have used better lighting in the room, and a full length mirror. Overall a pleasant stay.
Room was great
While the halls may be old and the place very large, the room was wonderful and recently redone. The beds were cushy, the place clean and I will be staying there again.
I was thrilled with how my stay went. The staff at the hotel made me feel right at home, and made sure I got whatever I neeeded. The managment was very friendly, and directed me to good restaurants and fun things to do in the city. The room was very spacious, and I had a wonderful nights sleep. The room was big enough for me, and had really comfortable chairs! I needed a few more towels, and I pressed "0" on the phone, and a very friendly employee was knocking on my door withing two minutes. I also got a call from the front desk just making sure everything was in order in the room. What Service. They don't have a pool, but for me that wasn't a big issue. If you want a great hotel with a pool, I would also recommend Sheraton Brookfield Hotel. I was very satisfied with my stay, and highly recommend this hotel. I will be back. Enjoy your vacation.
Lots of mildew on my shower curtain. This place needs a serious renovation.
