Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
The destination for old-world Milwaukee elegance and luxury since its opening day in 1893, the Pfister has hosted presidents, dignitaries and celebrities over the decades and has maintained its AAA 4-Diamond designation since the ratings were first published in 1976.
Rooms feature polished wood furnishings and pillowtop beds with Egyptian cotton sheets. Tower rooms feature lake and city views, and Club-level rooms also include access to the 23rd-floor private lounge; suites add separate living areas for some extra space.
Dining options include The Cafe at the Pfister for sandwiches, salads and Starbucks coffee (along with free Wi-Fi) and the Mason Street Grill serves steakhouse fare. Head to the 23rd-floor for penthouse cocktails at Blu -- it regularly wins "best view in town" honors -- and there's also afternoon tea served on the weekends. The hotel also features the WELL Spa + Salon, named one of the best destination spas in Wisconsin by Milwaukee Magazine.
The downtown location puts guests within walking distance of the Pabst Theater, the Bradley Center, the bars and restaurants of Old World Third and Water streets and the famous Milwaukee Art Museum along the lakefront.
