I had my entire family here for my oldest sons college graduation. As soon as I stepped into the lobby I was impressed. Please note I usually only ever stay at one other hotel while in Milwaukee and it was booked. From now on I will stay at the Residence Inn. From the cleanliness to the amazing staff to the...

This is the beautiful Gimbal's Department store transformed into a wonderful 5 star experience. Located the heart of downtown Milwaukee, within walking distance to most everything and least the things we were in town for. The rooms are wonderful and some have great views of the river. We loved the high ceilings in every room. The breakfast bar off the...

Convenient location, within walking distance to many restaurants. The hotel is beautiful and really clean with fantastic breakfasts each morning. Views of the river are incredible. Many attractions close by too.

Was traveling to see the Chicago concert at the Riverside Theater across the street. Wow, couldn't have a more perfect location. I was able to go to "will call" and get my ticket and to the pre-show "Meet and Greet" and then get my hand stamped and hang out back at the hotel for the hour before the show started....

This hotel is in a great location in a nice area of downtown Milwaukee. Upon arrival, I was told a regular room was not available, so I was given a sweet overlooking the Milwaukee River. What a terrific view that was! The room was perfect. I had a comfortable king-sized bed, which enabled me to get a great night's sleep....

Wow. We stayed at this hotel for some sightseeing in Milwaukee. It's right on the River Walk, just a few blocks from the Milwaukee Public Market. The staff was overly friendly and super nice, you really couldn't ask for better service. Everyone greets you and makes you feel special. We will be happy to stay again as the rooms are...

Per my review in 2012, I said I would stay again, so I did, and I haven't changed my opinion. This is a great place to stay downtown Milwaukee. It is clean, comfortable, and very close to everything downtown. I'll finish this review like my last one, I will stay again!

My son and I stayed here on a weekend getaway in April - coming from I94, it's super easy to get to! Not only easy and quick to get to, but the location downtown can't be beat. We were right on the river - upon check in, I'd mentioned that it was my son's first trip to Milwaukee and the...

The rooms are awesome, and everything is really close by as far as restaurants, bars, and whatnot. The Milwaukee public market is close by as well for some grocery items, but the nearest grocery store is a little bit of a hike. I didn't honestly realize there is a stove, and full size fridge in the room. What really blew...
