Well priced old downtown hotel. Athletic facilities a plus. Plumbing and HVAC very old. Did not sleep well because room was too warm and cooling did not work. Restaurant/bar was fine for my purposes but was not real fancy.

I wasn't really sure what I was getting when I booked this hotel. There were a lot of mixed reviews, but the excellent location made me give it a shot. The room wasn't special. It felt like I was sleeping at my grandmother's house, which isn't a bad thing, it's just strange for a hotel. But I slept fine, it...

The worst part of the stay was that the shower was unusable- the water was literally burning hot and would not cool. The faucets, including that for the sink, was also burning hot and could only be touched with a towel. The hallways smelled of mold. We were told to pay for parking only to then find out the parking...

Nice vintage hotel and health club. As a guest on the three floors available as hotel room you have acces to the gym, pool, etc. Vintage building in great shape. Large rooms, nicely appointed. Generally very clubby. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Look forward to return visit. Would skip the bar, looks like woody old club but very loud.

Looking for a great place with vintage charm, modern amenities, at a reasonable cost, look no further. The Milwaukee Athletic Club is a fine example of re-purposed structures; a former private club preserving its original architecture and decor, offering both a 5 star hotel and a Milwaukee history experience.

First off, and to be remembered, this hotel "encourages" a dress code. Completely laughable. Looking at the pictures they offered online, this was a nice place to stay... Stepping inside, it "feels" rightly, vintage 'ish. Opening the door to the room, the smell is "acceptable" with the age. But, barely equipped. No fridge, no thermostat control and no fan. Other...

Rooms are huge, clean and air conditioned. It is an outdated hotel - I don't mind olde world charm, but the bathroom decor and carpets should be replaced. I was surprised that there was only (hard) soap and conditioner in a sachet. For the price, I find that a higher quality of these items is normally provided. I was told...

The positive was that the room was a nice size and the beds were relatively comfortable. Now for the not so positive things about our stay. We were looking forward to having a drink at the roof top bar but unfortunately they don't tell you that it's closed every weekend because it's booked for weddings. Another drawback was that the...

A nice hotel with nice employees. I booked a room at 1am and all went smooth. Clean room, free wifi and not too far from the airport. If you have business to do in Milwaukee, WI, i recommend this place.

The hotel is old and run down the showers did not drain,you stand in ankle high water while showering the sinks also do not drain. Cable was not available but advertised in amenities. Rooms smelled musty. The wedding hosts paid for an open bar all night long and the Milwaukee Athletic Club started charging guest for drinks at 10:00pm talk...
