Hilton Milwaukee City Center

Travelzoo Staff

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.

Didn’t seem as clean as other stays, askednfor cooy if receipt and no $ amount, parking charge was on and was included

Hotel was unable to assign us the room type we reserved (Deluxe Double) so assigned us a regular double. Registration gave us free buffet breakfast for 4 people for the two days as compensation, which was a nice gesture. When we first booked through Travelzoo, there was a miscommunication apparently on the dates between Travelzoo and the Hilton Milwaukee which took 2 calls to sort out.

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.
