Front desk and breakfast staff were helpful and friendly Very spacious rooms but need updating Full kitchen but extremely limited cookware- we had to request a frying pan

Only complaint is housekeeping- we stayed for about a month between homes and requested housekeeping weekly They never changed the sheets, didn’t vacuum, didnt wipe down surfaces and left some trash cans full The only way I could tell they were even there was because we got fresh towels and shampoo

magdalena rosario

It room was clean and bed was comfortable We would have rated better but no hot water had to take shower in another room after calling several times to guest services We were locked put of our room due to batteries died so our card did not work

There was no compensation for all the inconveniences I have stayed at many Residents in and never had as many issues

Charlice M Drexler

I scheduled a room and was put in room 702 I liked the layout of the room with tall ceiling and large window As soon as I got inside I went straight to the bathroom, the toilet looked like it did not clean for weeks

Full of stains of people’s business in their The carpet has stains on it The tub was rusty, the kitchen counter and microwave were dirty I had to talk to front desk person and she sent someone to clean the room I was supposed to stay there for 7 nights I was so unhappy I did not want to be charged for last minute cancellation so I only stayed for 2 nights To tell you the truth, I will never stay in this hotel nor will I let anyone I know stay in this place

We stayed here as part of a trip to the Wisconsin State Fair I was apprehensive because I don’t know Milwaukee at all Check in was easy

The attendant was the manager and was so friendly and yet complete with his checkin No doubt, he understands the hospitality industry We had a room with two double beds It was really nice and looked updated The beds were super comfortable My only suggestion would be to put a lamp by the round table in the corner by the door Although we didn’t use it, the manager mentioned the shuttle to the state fair and my husband said the breakfast downstairs was awesome Honestly, we’ll be back to the State fair and this will be the first place we stay!

Melissa Hubbard

My husband and I stayed here last night, traveling for business This hotel has been recently renovated or they might still be completing the Renovations But it was very modern, clean, comfortable and quiet

The rate was very good The staff in the hotel and restaurant were friendly and helpful I would say the way the hotel is set up is kind of strange but that’s because of where it is located, it is in the downtown area We had dinner and drinks at the bar/restaurant and the food and service were very good We had the southwest chicken salad and a few wings We had a double queen room, it was kind of cramped especially if you were to have more than 2 adults in there Breakfast was pancakes, oatmeal, Jimmy Dean Breakfast sandwiches, cereal and breads All in all I would stay here again

Connie Wittling

Above and beyond service, manager asked shuttle driver to come in early so we could make a tailgate event for ALS Driver Dave is awesome, the pool was a big hit, the food was great, but most of all, customer service to the max! Every employee we had contact with was fantastic, absolutely staying again Family and friends, six rooms, no complaints

Maddie Meier

The amenities were good but I can’t recommend anyone stay here especially if you’re going to park on premises Multiple cars were broken into, eventually including our own, night after night during my stay Looks like this has been happening for months if not longer, and yet there are still not enough security measures being taken to deter whoever keeps doing this

Zero cameras in the north lot, which is full of broken glass Also, even though the staff were aware that multiple car windows were smashed and a thunderstorm was expected, no one thought to contact us or to put anything over our window, so we found it in the morning and now we’ve got water damage too The waffles at breakfast were pretty good though

Meg Bray

We agree, stay AWAY! We went to the Brewers game& came back to a parking lot of full of vehicles with their windows broken out (at least 5) that we saw driving through to turn around & park somewhere else I’m pregnant & was a bit worried about what was going on We went to the front desk to report it & the front desk said they were aware

We went up to our floor & found rooms of people that were packing up & leaving They were there since Thursday & this was the second time they experienced the break ins They also told us that some of their vehicles were stolen earlier too! Nope, all of our group (8 people) packed up & checked out Being in my 3rd trimester we were not going to risk having our brand new truck stolen or broken into!!! The front desk was unhelpful & cold when we asked about a refund for rooms we never even got to use We simply got a business card for the manager maybe with all this going on the manager should be there at night to help the staff very disappointed on how the situations were treated Especially for those that experienced it more than once! I didn’t even hear a simple “sorry” to anyone involved

Andrew B

I have been staying here on a regular basis for over a year, and while the hotel is nice, the neighborhood is not I have had not one, but two vehicles broken into and windows shattered this week, and this morning there was about 15 trucks broken into And despite being told by Milwaukee police they need to address their lack of security cameras in their parking lot, they refuse to do anything about it

Nice hotel, but I wouldn’t trust leaving your car here This apparently happens all the time

Pat Sevigny

I liked the place A lot of what other negative reviewers state is true: super small bathrooms, old furniture and patch jobs here and there But who cares

The beds were super comfy, shower was nice and hot, TV was nice It’s a good hotel despite its age The rooms are reasonably priced and ALL the staff were incredibly nice and helpful If you want a gigantic bathroom and the newest furniture possible then stay at a $400 a night hotel The only reason I docked it 2 stars is they have what would normally be a complimentary breakfast bar at hotelsit was $18 freaking…COME ON HYATT!!!

Debbie Matheny

The hotel is decent Our room was a king size room with a ‘city view’ The view was of construction

No big deal! The location to our venue was within walking distance The real issue was the fact that the hotel charged my credit card $41869 and states they only charged me $34891 (with a reimbursement of $50 for incidentals) leaving my total bill at $29891 after the reimbursement My Visa bill still shows a charge of $41869 Customer service was absolutely no help at all just wanting to speak with my bank I definitely do NOT recommend this hotel 🥲

Jennifer Bird

I booked this hotel as the ratings were better then another hotel in the area I myself work in a hotel so I was disappointed in the hyatt and its cleanliness The parking garage elevator and stairs were disgusting, the hotel elevators were also disgusting

I couldn’t believe that there was no mattress protector or bottom sheet on the bed as well The room was a good size and clean but the carpet looks like it needs to be cleaned Bathroom was small and the shower head and bathtub faucet sprayed every which way but down The front desk was great though Super nice even though they could see I was in a not so great mood I’m sorry but I’ve paid way less for nicer hotels that have things included so why I paid this much for a room and then having to pay $24 for overnight parking when there is no breakfast or pool was crazy to me I will not stay here again

Blood stains and hair on bed sheets, no soap in the shower, and semi-working TV, are the issues that we encountered during our 1-night stayWe have communicated these issues; bed sheets were replaced but forced us to leave the room with our toddler for exchange The people who replaced it had a strong cigarette smell that stayed in the room for another 30min

The hotel GM felt that this experience was work 1,600 points (around $12 value) I am a gold life status and stayed in many properties in my life, while the hotel looks new and modern, the Maintenace and cleaning made me question what is happening thereIf it was me, I would skip this location at all cost – if that’s what I found out in a night, I can only imagine what else could have gone wrong

Tolu Ojesina

The front desk always attended us with a cheery smile The hotel lobby had a relaxed ambience Our room was clean and spacious

It was relatively easy to get on and off the highway Just pay extra attention to the 41N and 41S signs I inadvertently drove past the on-ramp a few times due to construction, lol!My only ding is the itty bitty fridge but it’s not enough to keep me awayI highly recommend

r laitinen

location and the staff were awesome—helpful and super friendly! The front desk employees are a joy to deal with-no matter how busy it gets Our room was clean and welcoming I recommend this hotel to folks who need treatment at the close by Froedart hospital/clinic

Great location and easy access to hospital, clinic, restaurants etc The BEST!

Sarah Thomson-Weber

This is the perfect set up to go to a Brewers series The hotel has great service, great breakfasts and the most convenient way to shuttle to the games so you don’t have to worry about the parking It is right across from the State Fair Grounds which is the perfect location when the fair is going on

There are other simple amenities right around the corner for pretty much anything you need GREAT PLACE!!

Cierra Oswalt

Great place Very nice room I had a king suite which was very neat and clean

I brought my dog with and they were very polite to him We came here for the spay/neuter clinic and luckily this place is only five minutes away from it There’s a good size yard for them to potty on on leash as well as an enclosed area for them to be off leash There’s also poles with waste bags and a trash can so you don’t have to search for one The only issue I had was that the doors close very loudly They basically slam shut every time which isn’t very nice when you and your dog are light sleepers Overall, it was an affordable place that I’d stay at again if I visit the area again

Jamie F

*My wife and I stayed here, cause it was to her mom’s place*The hotel staff were so-so The room was nice and comfortable, but no microwave

*We brought our dog and they have pet area outside on main floor*Every morning, they have free USAToday newspaper* For late night snack, McDonald’s is across the street (24hrs drive thru)They don’t change the bedsheets or clean room (COVID protocol) unless, you ask front desk 24 hours in advance Any extra bathroom products (towels, toilet paper, soap) front desk has with request

Feedback From Real Customers

Amy Reid

The building is beautiful and holds lots of history and character The rooms were great! When we arrived the front desk person didn’t greet me or give me her full attention The phone kept ringing and she didn’t ignore it for me

Being the paying customer, I would have expected more of a warm welcome Being from out of town, I was not informed ahead of time the need to pay for valet parking each night of $32 We were lucky enough to find meter parking in the street instead but very frustrating, especially when you aren’t expecting it The rooms were beautiful, comfy bed, and a lot to offer in the room since it comes with a full kitchen The hotel itself doesn’t include a pool or Jacuzzi but does have a workout room Given we were there for an anniversary trip, we would have preferred the pool/jacuzzi The location was ok but not very close for walking to places Overall, a cool place to stay but not totally worth it

Blue Buterfly

The building itself is worth visiting! They’ve done an amazing job remodeling the old PBR brewery I loved the exposed brick and looking up into the copper kettles Room was clean and comfortable

Would have liked a fan in the bathroom but it was also clean Front desk was friendly and knowledgeable about the building and area Discovered after leaving my (extremely sentimental) necklace fell off while sleeping and they found it and mailed it to me THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT!!! You’ll never know how much it means to me to have it back Positive experience, would stay again

Raven Parkos

Beautiful building, lovely wonderful staffI loved exploring the building, it’s beautiful and the architecture is breathtaking A great place if you’re into photography or history Breakfast was super limited, but there’s other options close by

Valet parking was $32 a night but honestly not a deal breaker for the level of convenience they offer All around a great stay!!!

Sanjay Mohammed

Was able to get a ton of miles on my advantage account while enjoying a stay here Some of the staff were really nice and a couple were not so pleasant but that’s in it I guess The valet service was top notch all four employees on the different shifts were very helpful and super friendly

The pool table in the lobby was a fun addition to the experience Maybe the thermostat could have gone higher than 75f in the room but other than that everything was clean and perfect We had one issue where we requested a late checkout and the front desk gave us till 1pm at check in but the next day staff was knocking on our door They were very pleasant and accommodating when we told them about the late checkout requested we just wished the shift evening before had noted that so we didn’t have to go through the awkward encounter of having to explain why we were still in the room after 12pm Beyond that, highly recommend if you can afford(it’s not budget friendly) and will be in Milwaukee looking for a nice place to stay

Meena Y

Stayed here for a week on a business trip and I can say I enjoyed my experience Everyone on the staff that I came into contact with was hospitable, warm, and helpful The room was clean (although I wish it had better lighting and a better view)

Also, the rooftop bar has a great drinks and food and a view of the city that is beautiful at night

Christopher Drenth

Kimpton journeyman is a really cool hotel It is super dog-friendly They have fun events every day

They have clean facilities and they even have bikes that you can rent for freeTheir rooftop bar is fun, and their cafe is delicious although it’s hard to commit to their coffee when there are so many other good coffee shops aroundSome knocks against kimpton are- the price, it’s rather expensive for a fairly traditional hotel room- no pool to relax in- no complimentary breakfast (it’s an up charge on your bill)- valet parking is another $37 dollarsSome great things are:- the soaking tubs- location, location, location- staff are very friendly and inviting- dog-friendly

Noelle Wiebusch

Very pleased with our experience at the Pfizer The entire building had a vintage appeal with modern upgrades Dominic helped us at the front desk and was very kind

We even received a text from him later in the evening, asking if he could do anything to make our experience better He answered all of our questions regarding the pool and spa!We are at the Cafe in the morning and had the “Hungry Man” breakfast Delicious!The only thing I can think of that was slightly negative about our experience was that the bathtub wasn’t cleaned when we arrived, and when we ordered room service, the food was coldAlso (and not at any fault of the hotel), DON’T park in the parking lot across the street They’ll charge you a huge fee if you’re there over 24 hours You’re better off going with the hotel’s valet servicesDefinitely will be going again!

Tatum Cochran

We just spent a short weekend away at the Pfister and could not have had a better time! It is a beautiful space, but what really took our experience over the top was the staffAlyson at the lobby bar was one of the best bartenders I’ve ever met – kind, organized, outgoing, friendly, and so thoughtful She took the time to talk with us about the hotel’s history and amazing artist in residence program, and the drinks were all fantastic! Despite a very full bar and the fact that she was churning out drinks for everyone she still took the time to chat with us – impressive multitasking! The second night we were there she was serving and noticed that we hadn’t yet found a seat – she remembered what we had ordered the night before and brought us our drinks before we even ordered, which we appreciated so much

We felt like we were at our neighborhood bar at home!Marco at the concierge desk was so lovely – he took our photos and even helped us pose 🙂 It was a great addition to our stayAlexa at the bar at Mason Street Grill was absolutely fantastic – she had a full bar and was so on top of each guest’s needs Her attitude was so positive and friendly! The food there was also incredible – the salmon dish is to die for and the filet was perfectly cookedI would absolutely recommend staying here to anyone – the comfortable rooms and beautiful ambiance are fantastic, and make sure you have at least a drink or two and a meal inside the hotel – the staff will blow your mind!

Veronika Kudina

Love! Love! Love! Do you want to feel like a Hollywood star, important individual or simple feel like when you walked in it matters that you chose to stay here Then, this hotel is a right place for you The atmosphere is friendly and kind as well as a little mysterious with all the decor and unique artwork

The front desk staff was beyond accommodating, professional and kind The bartender was super nice and even gave me a free soda since I wasn’t looking to get a drink i went up to front desk to exchange a $20 to tip him, and they did it without any problems I only wish I would take down their names The rooms are beautiful, place is gorgeous and wow wow wow their Christmas tree (I was there December 18-20) was spectacular Looking forward to staying here again soon! Thank you Pfister staff, you are one of a kind, amazing, caring and incredible people

The staff was WONDERFUL – everyone with whom we came in contact I’ve never experienced such a wonderful staff in a hotel before The breakfasts were super good and there was coffee available all day

I was disappointed in my room The floor had numerous stains and the carpet was coming up The room was humid the entire time no matter what I did with the thermostatI was disappointed there was no cleaning of the rooms in the 4 nights I stayed, 5 nights for my parents I’ve never been I a hotel where this happens (except Africa)Our toilet had an issue one night, but there was no one on staff except the lady at the front desk, so I had to fix it or we had no toilet Fortunately it was an easy fix A 3-star hotel needs to have a remedy other than the customer! Again, we weren’t in Africa!Finally, our family was there on bereavement and booked 4 rooms We ended up with 3 different rates for bereavement rate I’m still trying to figure that one outI would probably go back if I needed to stay in the area, but there are these couple things that need help

Jill Spann

First the good stuff: the staff here were great, so helpful and attentive When we got to our room the TV remote batteries were dead, we called and they brought us a new one right up While the worker was there I asked her where we could find some plastic forks and she said they were at the front desk

Minutes later she was knocking at the door with a few sets of plastic ware for us which was really nice and not expected The room was very clean, the breakfast was great, the pool and hot tub are a pretty decent sizeNow the not so great stuff: the bed was not very comfortable, it was like sleeping on a really old mattress that has lost its squish and is all springs Like other reviews have said the chlorine in the pool area was so strong my eyes were burning even the next morning Also the pool was freezing cold, we entered the pool first and planned to finish up in the hot tub but after shrieking in the cold pool for a minute we decided to just go straight to the hot tub And finally, the elevator ride from hell I ride elevators a lot (I work in a hospital) so I’m not afraid of elevators I can tell you this elevator was the most terrifying one I’ve ever been on As the car passes each floor it shakes from side to side and jostles you around, and when we reached our floor before the doors opened it dropped a couple inches It’s also a very small elevator so the thought of getting stuck in that thing is terrifying We took the stairs the rest of our stay which was certainly better for our health but not what you’re looking for when you’re paying to stay at a hotel If you’re afraid of elevators plan to stay on the first floor or take the stairs Overall it was a fine stay but I wouldn’t choose to stay here again

Hank Zane

Stayed here for a night for a wedding Enjoyed the room, coffee and breakfast, and the pool and hot tub area We were here on a Saturday and there was a fire and get together in the courtyard, pretty chill vibe

There is a fitness area with treadmills and stationary bikes but didn’t get to try it out Overall a fun stay for a single night

The hotel itself is decent The aesthetics are cool however when you walk in it instantly reeks of high school boy locker room It’s as if someone was nervously trying to cover up body odor with the smell of cheap perfume

Pillows had coffee stains from previous stays And there were stains on the duvet Now as far as the front desk I can honestly say they’re just about useless I called down to the front desk to have paper and pen sent and received nothing And then when I extend my stay I am locked out of my room at six in the morning to only be told by Timothy the front desk boy that he can’t find my reservation and that he will not help me if I continue to be rude and that he is new I was however more than direct to what I needed to be done All in all this hotel fell extremely short for the price that was paid Oh and don’t even waste your time at the hotels restaurant You’re better off going to McDonald’s

Jesse Courchaine

Beautiful modern hotel with a comfortable bed and quiet room Decently priced for the area Overnight parking is charged $10 even though it’s in the same free lot as Cheesecake Factory

Cleaning service woke us up at 9AM, there wasn’t a do-not-disturb sign we could put on the door and wanted to sleep in There is a mini-fridge but no microwave There is soda, water and snacks for sale at the front desk but they are not refrigerated Overall, we would stay here again, just a few minor issues!

Vincent Gaines

The Renaissance hotel is beautifully finished The lobby is nice Rooms are modern and tastefully furnished

The prove is high for this area, but less than many other big city hotels This is a Marriot member hotel so all the usual Marriott peeks are here I had a fine suite on the 5th floor Quiet, king bed room with living and dining space My room faces the east so I saw a lovely sunrise several days

I would not normally pick Doubletree as a family hotel but in this case it was excellent We stayed on a Wednesday and had a great experience The desk staff was very friendly and accommodating to my young family

Gave the children cookies and warmly wished us a great stay The breakfast in the morning was limited but was delicious The kids had a great time in the pool, it is large and never gets above 3’6″ Most importantly the rooms were very clean I travel frequently and this is one of the cleanest rooms I have been in especially since there is a staffing shortage at the time I write this I cannot say enough about how well cared for this hotel is

This review is just for customer service, I haven’t even booked yet, the first time I called, I tried getting a connecting room with my sister, and the gentleman over the phone was super nice and helpful and I don’t remember his name, but was willing to help us get a connecting room My sister booked already and actually needed her suite, as I was told the suites don’t have a connecting room, which is totally fine Then I called back and I think it’s Greg or Craig, I apologize as I didn’t catch your name and I hope I’m close, but he is amazing! I just called him to see if he had any rooms next to my sisters suite as she was on the first floor, mind you I already booked through a 3rd party site just like my sister

I was thinking if I got a Suite, I would be next to her room, I wanted a room next to hers He said if I payed already, just keep my suite and he could put me just one floor above hers to keep us closer He also said if I wanted a room next to her suite he could book me in a double queen I had to give up my suite, but a double queen also works for my family and I I was able to cancel my booking I made online as he booked me over the phone right away for the double queen next to my sister’s suite, and sent me a confirmation right away!!!!! He is awesome, super informative and super helpful! Thank you! I’m excited for my stay and look forward to it!!!!! Lol my sister doesn’t even know I’m going to be her neighbor tomorrow, and that is so convenient and it will be nice for the kids as well!! Thank you so much for fast, informative and professional customer service! When booking into hotels that’s the first quality I look for, is the front desk/ customer service! I’m so happy and cannot wait for tomorrow!

Had to stay here for a baseball tournament we were playing in Rooms were ok, hot tub wasn’t working, in our room fee we paid for breakfast and got coupons and the lady that was working the breakfast area was very pushy about those coupons Breakfast price seems high for quality of food considering most hotels do similar for free

Also restaurant/bar in hotel was closed on a weekend Being from another state and staying for a tournament the convenience of having a restaurant on site was something we looked forward to but we had to go elsewhere Only stayed one night and left for a different hotel in area that was a little cheaper with better options

This was my first trip to Milwaukee and I am grateful this is where I stayedThe Hotel Staff were amazing and kind Shout out to Noah and the other Front Desk Team

As well as the Vallet StaffThe room was spacious, clean, and well equipped The best part of my stay was the bed Westin hotels always have nice beds but this was the best one yet

Maya Jerdy

Stayed at many hotels and this is easily among my favourites The staff is impeccable The restaurant is delicious

The amenities are great The gym has two pelotons and full equipment spread + weight sets The rooms are clean and well-taken care of The area easily supports walking anywhere worthwhile in-townI couldn’t recommend more!Shout out to Julia from reception who brought me ice, water, and some goodies when I hurt myself and was noticeably struggling That was beyond kind but nothing unexpected for this fabulous hotel

Jessica Allen

The staff at the front desk was very friendly and knowledgeable, the overall cleanliness of the hotel was good However housekeeping was not friendly if you ask for something wouldn’t even acknowledge you at the door The most damaging which overall resulted in this low rating was the fact that we had no sheets, pillows, or anything of the sort for the pull out couch and when I did pull the couch out to make it we found packs of cigarettes and joints

I truly enjoy staying at this hotel Traveling with small children, the room sizes help make the stay more comfortable The location is great being right off the freeway, and it is super easy to get anywhere in the area

The best part by far is the people The front desk staff, maintenance, cleaning, and breakfast crew are all super friendly We had an issue one morning with the hot breakfast items all containing pork, and the staff member went into the back to grab me a non-meat option for the kids I’ve stayed here a few times when visiting Milwaukee, and this stay solidified its place as my top choice!

Mary Johnson

If you are expecting a heated pool, skip this hotel! Staff all have a different story as to why the pool isn’t heated enough to swim in To prevent algae? The outside temperature effects the pool temperature? Just admit that you are told by corporate not to heat the pool Other reviews from quite a while ago, mention how nice the pool is

New owner?On a positive note, the breakfast was nice and the lovely woman who serves it during the week is a treasure!

Nathan Schultz

This is bar none the best hotel experience I’ve had in yearsFirst, I booked with a travel package including tickets which I called to inquire about getting prior to check in Not only did they ensure they were ready for me, they also had our room ready at the time of pickup (before noon) which was incredibly convenient

When I called regarding the tickets I received an immediate call back when arrangements were made the day prior, as well as a phone call the day of to confirm (We all know how many times soemthing like this is communicated only to show up and wait an hour while they scratch their heads the day of)Second, the hotel was immaculate, modern and had great water pressure and temperature control in the room The pool and workout facilities were excellent, the outdoor workout area and patio were incredible tooThird and most importantly, everyone on the staff was incredibly accommodating, very friendly and greeted us all with a smileWe will stay gain and look forward too it!

Our room was very clean It looked very nice, and was located very nicely The employees where quite personable and helpful

And they took care of our bags for free when we where at the farmers market in Milwaukee We needed help with the temperature in our room and they sent someone promptly This is a great place to stay when coming to Milwaukee especially for a bucks game, you can walk to the stadium from this hotel Overall this is a great place to stay

Kristin Temby

I had my wedding block here as well as a meet and greet the night before the wedding Colleen was easy to work with and helped me plan out appetizers and drinks for my guests She went above and beyond and even made personalized tickets for my guests as drink cards

She made sure to check in on me during the evening and make sure everything was running smoothlyWe were able to get a block of rooms, however they changed the block price earlier than agreed upon due to high demand for our weekendAt least two rooms (mine included) on the tenth floor were leaking rain from the ceiling The staff brought in towels but they stated they could not get a roofing company to fix it until this summer so they couldn’t do anything about it I believe something was done financially to make this rightOverall, good hotel for the price and I would recommend for events at the restaurant and bar

Jason Meddaugh

A great location in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, just a few blocks from Amtrak You’re paying for the location and service, it’s not the type of place where you would expect a low rate Restaurant had reasonable prices considering the location

A big thanks to Trent who helped solve an issue with dry cleaning and ensured I had my suit in time for a wedding The rooms are sufficient, though not huge, and the closet/bathroom layout was a bit cumbersome, but overall it was a great stay and location

Ashley Sauder

Booked 3 night at the Knickerbocker Overall, a pleasant place to stay Our experience with the staff was OK

The bed in our suite was not good (very important to me) and overall the suite was clean We had construction jackhammering outside our room the 2 days we stayed there A few areas in our room needed cosmetic work (peeling paint, etc) We ended up being very sick the first and second night and needed to leave the third night There was no accommodating this and they stuck to their no refund or discount policy Overall, if they’re going to be a beautiful hotel getaway with a restaurant and a spa they did not meet my expectations for hospitality, friendliness and environment

My wife and I stayed two nights on 6/27-29/2022 and it was Fabulous! We were greeted at check in by Rick (one of the two owners) and he asked us a few questions to make our breakfast and stay personalized and perfect for us The breakfasts were some of the best food we have had in a very long time Laura Sue (the other owner) made sure our breakfast experience was perfect both mornings

The mansion is easy to get to, in a great location that is easily accessible to all of Milwaukee and it sites, and a perfect blast to the past in an historically preserved setting It has good off-street parking for guests We brought a dinner back to eat in the beautiful garden by the fountain Overall this was a very beautiful

Phillip Kolter

I treated my wife, Ginger with High Tea at the historic Schuster Mansion as a combination Birthday and Anniversary gift Our host, Laura was so wonderful in guiding us through the process of selecting our Tea flavor before seating us in the “sun room” portion of the House Very eloquent with fabulous tasting treats! We also had a nice chat with the proprietors near the end of our eating

The “High Tea” was much nicer than the “Low Tea” we did years earlier Very highly recommended!! 👍❤👍

Patrick Schommer

Outstanding service in a fine Victorian bed and breakfast Laura Sue and Rick go out of their way to ensure each guest is treated like the most important visitor in the inn No question was too ignorant

No request was too bold We stayed for one night on a Saturday and checked in right away We were asked about our personal breakfast menu and timing, and then we were shown to our room There is so much history and so many details to view on the way and within the room The food the next morning was perfectly prepared and presented at the appointed time Each couple had their own table or area, so we were together but not too close We were able to chat and find out even more about the red mansion We had a wonderful time!
