beautiful location

The hotel is good and clean. Best is its location and good view rooms. All restaurants are close by. My 20 months baby enjoyed the view from the room a lot.

Summerfest Getaway

Can't beat the location. Walked to the Milwaukee Summerfest grounds and avoided parking and traffic. Near restaurants, lakefront, shopping. What more could you ask for.

Great location - friendly staff, but lacks housekeeping

The hotel was in a great spot, right on the river. We had to have our keys re-keyed four times over the three days because they only worked a bit and then stopped. Staff told me it was probably caused by the elements and "it happens". Housekeeping service is terrible. They came and put our coffee pot in the dishwasher, but didn't put the dishes in it from around the suite. They didn't even make up the sofa bed where my kids slept. The sheets had makeup on the pillow cases and were not changed. We got towels, but the left the tissue box empty and no toilet paper on the roll, and didn't give more shampoo. If my coffee pot wouldn't have been put in the dishwasher, i wouldn't have known they came. The next day, we went to the zoo and got home about 4pm, and housekeeping hadn't been there at all! I called down and they said they were behind. I made my own bed, and washed my own dishes - I didn't feel like I was on vacation. Friday we enjoyed breakfast. It was very good. On Saturday, it was so crowded, we couldn't get a seat, so we went out for breakfast. I enjoyed having the 2 room suite, it gave us lots of space, but this hotel does lack amenities and service. (except for Mia at the front desk - she had terrific service). If you are looking for space, this is a great place, and in a great location. You can walk to the public market in a few minutes!

Good value for location

We got this room for a concert we were going to at the Riverside Theater across the street. Can't beat having your hotel right across from your destination. But the noise from the busy street intersection made sleeping nearly impossible. The room was nice, but the bed sheets had stains on them, which isn't super appealing. All in all it was a decent experience and a good price. I wouldn't sleep in another room on that side of the street though.

Excellent Time at the Residence Inn

From the moment I got there, the service was good. I was very well received. Whenever I needed anything it was handled without issue from key cards, to towels, to toilet paper. The room service was very good and the ladies that came by were both sweet and polite, and helped to liven up my trip even more so. The rooms were excellent, well furnished with couch, HDTV, dishwasher, utensils, and more. The hotel even had quick, reliable, and best of all free Wi-Fi. There was dinner served as part of a social hour 3 nights a week and a full spread breakfast every morning, not just pastries and muffins. There was 24hr access gym as well. The only thing that I was partially bothered by was the charge to park in their underground parking garage, but it was well worth it since was heated and incredibly useful when you drive out into a fresh snow with no trace of snow, salt, or frost on the car. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel and if I return to Milwaukee I will be staying here again.

Excellent location in downtown Milwaukee

This all-suites hotel is located on the downtown Riverwalk which is a pleasant place to be and very convenient for walking to the shops/restaurants in the third ward and to various theaters. The room was VERY large and comfortable. Parking is under the hotel and costs $17/day, but is worth it, with in/out privileges. There is a hot buffet breakfast which was not excellent food, but plentiful and fine. The queen bed was very comfortable, a new pillowtop style and the sofabed was adequate for our son. We should have asked for extra blankets. Wifi was free and useable. Nothing fancy here but a good value for the location.

Good Location

We stayed at the Residence Inn for a weekend and enjoyed our visit. It was attached to a mall (many stores empty, but enough there to keep us busy), so we didn't have to walk outside in the cold. Good breakfast as well, included in our price. Nice architecture around the windows in the rooms and vaulted ceilings. You'll pay for parking anywhere in downtown Milwaukee, so that's not unexpected. We would stay here again. Only wish they had a restaurant, but there are several very close by.

Big Bang For The Buck!

My girlfriend and I were in Milwaukee to see the Brian Setzer Orchestra and we couldn't have been happier about a suite for the price of a regular hotel room. Staff was awesome, and the breakfast was quite good. It was a rainy weekend but being right downtown with an apartment size room gave us all the options we needed. The heated underground parking was very secure and very worth the additional $17 per day. We will be back!
