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.

The Hotel is Beautiful full of character and unique old charm, especially this time of year with the Christmas decorations! The transportation staff was amazing! We were in town for a Bucks game the shuttle took us directly to the stadium and we called 3 minutes left in the fourth quarter and we were picked up directly, no hassle with the end of game crowds! Thank you Tom!!!

The lobby bar area seemed nice, though I did not take time to sit and have a drink.

Certain parts of the hotel room were very tired, drapes and blackout blinds were in disrepair. Had trouble with heat not coming on to warm the room when called by the t-stat. I did call the front desk to request an additional blanket (because the room was so cold and it was late and I did not want to change rooms). The extra blanket that was brought up was very tired/old. The heat did start working the following morning. My second night was better with regards to the lack of heat the previous evening. The room temperature did not drop below 65 degrees at any time, but 65 to 66 degrees was the temp the first day/night. It was a corner room with windows on two sides, made for nice natural light, but the outside temp was below freezing. No valet service for car parking, self-parking was all that was offered and it was a challenge understanding how it worked. I checked out of the hotel via their express check out, I still have not received my bill via email and it is two days later.

Very "grand" hotel. The hotel is older and has beautiful architecture, crystal chandeliers, and marble throughout. Convenient Starbucks, Chophouse and Miller Time Bar and grill in the hotel.
