Hilton Milwaukee City Center

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.

The food at Miller Time Pub was great. We had dinner there twice actually. The area around the hotel was really depressing. So close to Marquette but just run down. Not a hotel issue but if you have kids with you might consider this important.

The hotel housekeeping staff never cleaned our room or changed the sheets. I called mid afternoon of the second day. I requested a cleaning and fresh drinking cups. I called again an hour later to request cups which finally showed up. No cleaning done while we were at the ball game. I went to the front desk at 11pm. It’s too late to change sheets now but we will bring you towels. They brought three towels. Weird.

Management needs to be more assertive in shooing the homeless away especially at night, did not feel safe. One manager suggested that I use a different door because a homeless guy was outside asking people for money and cigarettes. I told them that I wasn’t scared of him...perhaps you can make him leave the premises...nothing was done. Don’t walk at night...not safe!!

I purchased a TravelZoo deal. When I checked in I was asked to pay over $1300. They figured it out. Front desk gave me a coupon for restaurant to make up for it. That was nice. I was told to get a ticket when parking. Parking was supposed to be included. When I left after my stay I had to pay $84 to parking garage. I will be calling hotel to fix this. Staff was great but seemed like they did not know the Travel Zoo package.
