Roseville, California
Reviewed 15 October 2015

Good hotel. Staff was very friendly. They have some flavored water set to the side of the LL elevators. I suspect this is to prevent dehydration while waiting for the elevators, which can take a while to go up and down. Was an issue when a conference let out ... Otherwise, the hotel is dandy.

The hotel is almost twenty minutes away from the airport. The front desk check in was quick and efficient. The room was nice and clean as it should be with lots of power outlets for charging your electronics. The area around the hotel is not the safest but it's easy access to many restaurants, museums, attractions and shopping. You will...

Got a room at the last minute so we paid a premium. A double room is exactly that, two full size beds, not even queen size. Needless to say it was a sleepless night trying to share a bed when we're used to a king. Room was nicely updated and close to the arena for the concert and bar hopping...

During my business travel to this city, it is not difficult for me to choose a hotel. The Hilton Milwaukee City Center exceeds all expectations. It has modern rooms, but has maintained the charm of it historical architecture in lobbies and bars. The food in the hotel is great and there is an engaging bar in the lobby. The staff...

The Hilton downtown Milwaukee is a grand old hotel that has been nicely updated. It has a great lounge near the lobby where we enjoyed a cocktail before going out to dinner. Although we didn't eat at them, they do have two restaurants in the hotel.

The hotel was very nice and clean, however, the bed was extremely soft causing restlessness and backaches. The food was excellent and the staff was very accommodating. Many restaurants in the area and skyways are available to the convention center, which made commuting easier on rainy days.
