I was delightfully surprised by this hotel. I saw reviews before booking here and everything looked good except that some reviewers stated that the area didn't seem that safe. I had no problem with the area. Everything around the hotel appeared safe but I didn't explore by foot. The hotel offers a shuttle that runs until 12:30am on the weekends....

The rooms were perfect - the pillows are really big and comfy. The night was quiet and the curtains are the very best ever. We slept really well. Only wish was that we could stay longer . We will most definitely re-book. Non chain hotel - old school - well run-made us feel special

When we arrived in the USA at a connecting flight in St Paul, she realized we were going to Milwaukee. She asked why we would be going there and I told her that I couldn't come up with a...

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel has great ambiance and our room and bathroom were very nice. FYI, the hotel is right across the street from the Rave. Checking in we were asked if going to the Rave and we were for a Country show. Staff was friendly, but gave warning about extra room fees if something happened. We are...

I got very good sleep! Which I usually don't. We stayed in a king whirlpool suite & it was lovely! Just a fair warning though the fridge that they already have in the room is censored. I tried looking at a type of wine that was in the fridge pulled it out and put it back in and on my...

When you speak with the manager you are working with, please ensure that your room number is shared so that we may inspect the mini-bar, as each unit should have a label across the top of the door that alerts...

The stay was really great, but it was pretty pricey and many extra fees. That was the only bad part. Everything else was perfect! I came here for a concert and I thought it was pretty smart that they put everyone from the rave on the same floors.

The hotel is really high class and the staff is unbelievably friendly. When we arrived there was no wallet or bell hop, but the front desk staff was so kind. The bar looked amazing and they played music from the roaring '20's
