We've stayed at the Pfister several times and love it more with every stay. It's beautiful and comfortable and the service just can't be beat. The staff is so friendly and helpful, if you ever do have a problem they fix it quickly and with a smile. And I mean every member of the staff you encounter, from the front desk, valets, housekeeping, to the room service people. Will, the guy who took my room service orders, was a sweetheart. The food is excellent--in the lobby bar, the cafe, the Mason Street Grill and room service. Room service breakfast came with a beautiful pink rose on the table. Make sure to have a drink in the Lobby Lounge (and gape at the gorgeous painted ceiling), and also Blu if you can. The view is great and the room is so comfortable. Delicious cocktails.
The rooms have old fashioned elegance, and while some people may see a bit of wear and tear, to me it just adds comfort. The rooms are spotlessly clean. One word of warning- all suites, though they be classed the same, are not identical. Last year our suite had the bathroom between the bedroom and living room with closing doors on each end. Last weekend we had a suite with a bathroom inside the bedroom. This is somewhat inconvenient with three people.
Last year I did use the spa and it was fantastic. The pool is nice with a great view of the city, but I do wish they had a hot tub. All in all, this is one of my favorite hotels and it's actually worth a trip to Milwaukee just for a little break at the Pfister. It does get really crazy on Saturdays because of weddings, so if you possibly can, stay on Sunday or during the week. The atmosphere is much more relaxed.
