Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Milwaukee
Great downtown Milwaukee Hotel!
We were guests at a wedding in Milwaukee and many of us stayed at the Intercontinental. The rooms were superb, well appointed, clean and the staff at the front desk were most helpful. We definitely would recommend the hotel to others in Milwaukee for a weekend festivity!
¡Excelente hotel en el centro de la ciudad de Milwaukee!
Éramos invitados en una boda en Milwaukee y muchos de nosotros nos alojamos en el Intercontinental. Las habitaciones eran magníficas, bien diseñadas, limpias y el personal de la recepción era de lo más servicial. ¡Recomendaríamos mucho el hotel a los que estén en Milwaukee para una fiesta de fin de semana!
Un fantastico hotel in centro a Milwaukee
Eravamo ospiti ad un matrimonio organizzato a Milwaukee e in molti abbiamo soggiornato all'Intercontinental. Le camere erano stupende, ben arredate, pulite e il personale di ricevimento era estremamente disponibile. Consigliamo sicuramente questo hotel a chiunque vada a Milwaukee per una vacanza di un weekend!
My husband and I just spent two nights in Milwaukee at the Intercontinental. When we arrived our room wasn't quite ready so they stored it for us and we went to Rock Bottom Brewery to grab a bite to eat. Back at the hotel the young women at the front desk were really nice and accomodating, they called and helped us book our tour for Ten Chimneys. Anything we needed to know one of the women would hop on her computer and look up whatever it was she didn't have the answer for.
Our room was very nicely appointed and also very clean. Our view was of construction and scaffolding, not too great, but we had our sheer drapes drawn anyway and enjoyed the beautiful room. We didn't eat at the hotel and didn't need any personal services so we can't comment on that. It was our first trip to Milwaukee and overall we couldn't have picked a better hotel to stay at. We would definitely stay there again and we highly recommend it to everyone.
Beautiful hotel, fantastic stay!
I stayed at the Intercontinental in March while I was in town for the Taylor Hicks concert at the Pabst Theatre. Both the hotel and the Pabst Theatre are located in the "Milwaukee Center", among other businesses. It was extremely convinient - I could go to the concert and walk back to the hotel in all of a minute - without ever going outside!
The hotel is by far one of the nicest I have ever stayed at. The beds were a dream, the decor was very modern and beautiful, and the view of downtown was fabulous. The staff was friendly, although I didn't have a lot of interaction with them.
I believe we paid a little over $100 (the concert was on a weeknight). What a steal! I highly reccomend the Intercontinental!
Cool Hotel with Outstanding Service
We stayed at this hotel and loved it! The hotel was just totally remodeled and it is very cool. Our room was beautiful with a two-head shower (one in the ceiling, one on the wall). The rooms have flat screen TV's, you can plug your iPod into the clock radio to play it over the speaker, the beds are very comfortable, and the lighting is cool. The location is second-to-none right by the Milwaukee Rep Theater and the Marcus Center for the performing arts. There are also several brewery restaurants close by and the nearby RiverWalk is nice. The staff here is attentive to every need. It seemed like most employees felt (at least a little bit) proud of the recent remodeling and wanted us to feel good at the hotel. We had a big room with a king bed. It was very roomy. However, other people told us their rooms were very very small (one person said "like a ship's cabin!"). I'm sure that even the small rooms are nice -- but ask for one with more space if possible.
I recently stayed at the Milawukee Intercontinental as part of a group touring the area looking at historic theaters and their architecture. We made our group reservations back when this property was a Wyndham and received a fairly decent rate. In the 18 months following, the property changed to an Intercontinental and the base rate soared, yet our rate stayed as per our contract.
One look at the room and i realized what a phenominal deal we had made! The room was stunning - all new decor and the biggest most comfortable bed i have ever slept in while traveling. I think the matress topper was made of down or some other incredibly soft material. It was brutal to get out of bed in the morning to join the group for the day's activities! My room had a huge kidney shaped desk
and lots of natural light from a huge window. It made it very easy to
work on presentations, notes, projects for the group.
The hotel connects with the historic, stunning Pabst Theater by an atrium. The hotel lobby shop is well stocked and quite reasonable place to purchase gifts and sundries.
The hotel staff was very professional and pleasant, nothing was over looked for our group. I would give this hotel the highest rating possible and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Milwaukee.
Excellent Accomodations for Business or Pleasure
I stayed here June 22-25 for a business conference. I found the rooms were appropriately appointed for a hotel of this caliber. I booked a king suite which offered a separate sitting area with a 30" flat screen mounted to the wall. In addition, my conference was held in Salons D, E & C during the four days. Each room provided a pleasant atmosphere for our small meetings; the catered meals were to our satisfaction also. One cannot beat the location of this hotel as it's within walking distance to many of the downtown attractions. I was surprised the room didn't offer refrigerator and microwave.
Wonderful, new hotel!
Milwaukee's new Intercontinental is honestly a wonderful place to stay. This former Wyndham has a great restaurant called Kil@Wat, a cool (but small) clubby-bar called ZenDen, and a slick, relaxing bar called Clear. My wife and I tried all three during a recent weekend stay. The hotel has been completely re-done and is extremely clean. The rooms are great and the beds are very comfortable. No complaints! It ranks up there with the Ambassador and Metro as Milwaukee's nicest hotels.
Just back from a pleasant stay at the Intercontinental Milwaukee. This property was an old Wyndam that has been updated. Great location and the room was well equipped and comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Now to the good stuff, the KilaWat restaurant in the hotel is a must! The chef, formally of a major Las Vegas restaurant, has brought much needed great food to beertown! I took a group of 12 with me and the waitstaff never missed a beat. Smiling and helpful all the way. And what's not to smile about, they serve the best meal that Milwaukee has to offer. I am going back in April and will stay at the Intercon again, for the room, the staff and, of course, for the food!

... Being a Sunday we drove into the city and found a parking spot near to the river which has a walk on both sides. There are also sculptures along the walk, including the most photographghed spot in Milwaukee which is a statue of the Fonz. We watched the small pleasure boats going through the raised bridges and had a beer and mojito at a micro brewery.
Off to find a camp spot and ended up at the State fairgrounds. Today was the last day of a huge music festival called Summerset.
... out and went straight to bed. This morning we slept in and then we went on a search to find an ornament. We first went to the Milwaukee Downtown Information Center only to find it closed so we looked online and it had listened Kloiber Jewelers (a local jewelry store) as a place that also sold them, so we headed over that way. Milwaukee has an ornament series that chooses a building each year to represent the city in the ornament. When we got there we met the ...

A few beers and bars later we managed to grab some food at the "Swingin Door Exchange" where we tried the "Spicy Vermouth Carrots". Carrots have never tasted so good and been so unhealthy. From what i could tell it was carrots soaked in sugar and butter, yum!
Had some more beers and talked to some people ...
