Why We Love It

  • This cool art-deco building is connected to the Wisconsin Convention Center via heated walkway
  • Close to riverfront shopping and dining, the Riverside Theater, the Discovery World museum and the Milwaukee Public Market
  • Home to one of the city's best steakhouses
  • Ask to meet Millie, the hotel's "canine concierge," a miniature goldendoodle on site most days of the week

The Hilton Milwaukee City Center is a 4-star, AAA 4-Diamond downtown option for guests looking for a bit of old-school character during their stay. Originally built in 1927, it's still one of the biggest hotels in the city and retains its art-deco style. 

Rooms are spacious and comfortable with Hilton's Serenity Bedding, flat-panel TVs, coffeemakers and Wi-Fi. Junior Suites include separate seating areas and upgraded furnishings, and all guests have access to the on-site fitness center. 

Happy hour at the Monarch Lounge has a nice vibe and is reasonably priced; additional dining options include casual grub at the Miller Time Pub & Grill, and fancier (meatier) fare at the Milwaukee ChopHouse -- Thrillist calls it one of the best steakhouses in Milwaukee. 

Guests are within a 10-minute walk of downtown attractions like the bars and restaurants of Old World Third Street and Water Street, as well as the Miller High Life Theatre, the Riverside Theater, the Bradley Center and the Shops of Grand Avenue. Business guests will love that the hotel is connected via heated walkway to the Wisconsin Convention Center.

Cleaning staff did poor job (and I'm not picky), room service forgot our breakfast ( both mornings !!), had problem with being overcharged for my stay and then correcting it.

Other Comments
Hotel concierge was not very knowledgeable about local indoor pedway system. Temperatures were below zero, and we were directed to walk outside for several blocks when we did not have to. Found our way back through it via an online map and barely had to walk outside. Seems to me the concierge should have that information at the ready, and maps on hand. Also, when we checked in the staff member told us that the drink vouchers included with our room rate would not be able to be used as the lounge was not open for the holiday. We had to ask whether they had a different voucher to offer, and the manager had to be called to sort it out. We were given vouchers to a pub on the property. It should have been an automatic replacement, and not something we had to seek out. I have higher expectations of staff in four star hotels.
