I recently stayed in Residence Inn for a week for Business. I found it really good, rooms are really spacious and they provide small kitchen within the room. This is also walking distance from most downtown offices and hotels. Had a great Stay!

I recently stayed here with my boyfriend. We wanted to do a cute trip for the holidays. We picked this hotel because it was on the river and close to everything. We did the Jingle Bus which was only a block or two away from the hotel. The room was beautiful with a full kitchen as well. Their room service...

As mentioned in other reviews, the location of this hotel is about as good as it gets in Milwaukee....Literally walking distance from all of the downtown culture. Rooms are nice and clean, and appear to be about 10yrs old....Solid 3.5 star hotel in my book

We were in town for the OSU basketball game and booked a night here, so glad we did. They upgraded us to a one bedroom, the high ceilings, huge windows overlook kin the river and city were great. Perfect location and very friendly staff. We will book here for our next trip to Milwaukee for sure.

Great location, good breakfast, hospitable staff. In an older very well maintained building with lots of charm. The high ceilings in the rooms were a great feature. Within walking distance of the beautiful riverwalk as well as many restaurants and nightspots.

excellent downtown location with nice view of the river. Clean, large room with high ceilings. Convenient to convention center and many restaurants. Short cab ride from airport. Small kitchen was an added convenience. Free breakfast was fine. Very thin mattress on sofa bed is my only complaint.

I was really surprised by this hotel. It is in the Old Gimbels department store, so it has that grand old feel. The location is really nice, right along the river and great views to boot. You can go right out the back door of the hotal to get to the river esplanade. Like all residence inns, complimentary wifi and...

Travelled to Milwaukee for the first time for a 3-day business trip. Hotel was the perfect location! Right on the river walk! Staff was very helpful and friendly, especially Jordan. He always greeted us with a smile and helped with directions to nearby restaurants. Another staff member arranged for a van to pick us up and take us to a...

We stayed here last weekend and loved it. Room was huge with a King size bed that looked so small because room was so large. Our room overlooked the Riverwalk, beautiful at night, the view was terrific. We were on the 7th floor, elevators very efficient. Breakfast good in morning, staff all very friendly and willing to do whatever was...
