This historic, Art Deco inspired, hotel is located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee's Art and Entertainment District. Our suites are not just spacious, they are HUGE! Our suites range from 450 sq.ft. to 750 sq.ft. and can accommodate up to four guests per room. We are located in the middle of a very walk friendly and restaurant rich neighborhood. We are very close to Lake Michigan's waterfront, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Harley Davidson Museum, BMO Harris Bradley Center and the Wisconsin Center. Hotel Metro is a Four-Star, full-service hotel and has been fortunate enough to have been recognized as "One of the Top Hotels in the World" by Travel & Leisure Magazine, as well as "Where to Stay" by the New York Times. Most recently, we were honored with the 2013 & 2014 Excellence Award from TripAdvisor.

Hotel Metro is a serviceable “boutique” Hotel centrally located in the Milwaukee CBD. It is on the Historic Register for its Art Deco styling (which you are reminded of when paying the extra $5 historic preservation fee at checkout). Rooms are dated, but clean and spacious, and

My room had a non functioning thermostat. They didn't tell me this at the check in. I called and they said they'll send someone to fix it, even confirming with me if it was ok to come when I was out, I said yes. Arrived back at 11pm after a long day. No one fixed it. Room

The Hotel Metro was one of the early 'quirky' boutique hotels. The room decor is off-beat but with great amenities. My room was very generous in size and included a huge bath tub for soaking. I was given a $20 certificate toward food at the restaurant. They served small

We stayed at the Metro because where we usually stay was full. Now we will stay at the Metro. We had one of the rooms with the curved wall separating the room into two, really. So one of us could watch TV when the other didn't want to. It just felt so big. The staff at this

Hi, I'm sorry but I can't answer your question. I would talk to the valet when you arrive. They all were really nice and helpful when I stayed there. I would think they would be ok with the few hours. But check with them.
