Beautiful and nostalgic hotel! Super friendly staff. Excellent martinis. Prompt and convenient shuttle to the theatre. Room was clean, quiet and cozy! One very minor complaint-there was only one soap bar, even though there was 2 sinks and a shower and I had to remember to take it with me into the shower.

We stayed here when we came to Milwaukee to visit UW-Milwaukee. The hotel is beautiful and we were pleasantly surprised when they upgraded our room to a very spacious corner room! The room was beautiful, spacious and very clean. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy dinner etc. Will stay here again when visiting Milwaukee.

Not nearly as impressed as I was with our first stay. A little pricey - what's with charging for parking? The staff is friendly though, just the hotel itself is not too into pleasing guests it feels like. The free shuttle service is nice, just be prepared to possibly have a long ride on the way back. But, it's FREE...

It is an old hotel that was recently renovated and changed into a boutique hotel. it's reasonably priced, but worth it. They also have a free shuttle to squire you to various venues in the greater Milwaukee downtown area. Milwaukee is a fabulous...

Very nice old-school hotel with inviting Art-Deco decore. The Big Band/Swing Era music playing throughout the hotel really helped give you the feeling you were transported back to this elegant time. Room was nice--liked the Bath and Body Works Stress Relief products !

We stayed for a Saturday night in November in room 402. I recommend this room for quiet and size. The room is huge. Its so big in fact that the tv is almost too far from the beds. Good water pressure in the shower and we loved the fact there is an additional sink outside the bathroom. We thought the...

Thank you for your comments and compliments! Please know that our beds are Sealy Pillow Top mattresses and are the standard Queen size. However, it is possible that they are dwarfed by the size of our double Queen rooms, as they are very spacious and could very possibly cause the beds to appear smaller than at home.

The room rate was very attractive and the rooms are clean but just dated. The rooms are generally very large and the food is very good. There are very few television channels available in the room. Hotel is interesting from an architectural and historical standpoint

Hotel full of character, you can visualize all the happenings in the 20's. Rooms very clean as well as hotel. Staff accomodating, professional and overall pleasant. Great appetizers in bqr, and had a delishous breakfast. Loved many restaurants just a walk away. Will absolutely be back. Highly recommend!
