One of the nicest breakfast buffets I have seen anywhere. They change the food choices enough each day to keep things interesting. Very nice restaurant. They are serving at 6:00 a.m. Its great to have a nice breakfast early and be on my way. Great staff at the front desk {Maureen} and at the restaurant {everyone}.

Dear Bill W:

Thank you for choosing the Crowne Plaza Milwaukee Airport as your hotel of choice when in the Milwaukee area. We greatly appreciate your comments regarding our breakfast buffet and the service you received from our team members especially Maureen.

We are also in the process of further improving the appearance of the buffet and further changing up the variety of options that are offered on a day to day basis. I think you will even think higher of our breakfast buffet when the changes have been implemented.

Thank you once again for taking time out of your day to post a review on Trip Advisor.

Sincerely,

Clint Wills
General Manager

We stayed only one night here but found this to be a very nice property. They offer a free shuttle to the airport and surrounding area. We arrived around 1am and had the shuttle driver take us to George Webb down the street so we could eat. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The property is very clean and has a pool, jacuzzi, fitness and business center. The exterior can be deceiving as it seems as if it is an older hotel, but once inside it will not disappoint. Rooms are large and come with a coffee maker. Next to the front desk they have a pantry area with snacks and toiletries.

Dear Traveler J:

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your experiences at our hotel during your recent trip to Milwaukee. Its always great to hear how our team members are able to provide our guests with the special attention that they so deserve.

You are correct that the exterior of our hotel can be deceiving and it is indeed an older building. We completely renovated the interior of the hotel and opened as a Crowne Plaza in August of 2009. I think you will find our hotel to be the nicest upscale hotel in the Milwaukee Airport market.

I also wanted to let you know that we recently completely revamped our gift shop to include many more items since your last stay.

Thank you once again for your kind comments I will be certain to share them with our entire staff.

Sincerely,

Clint Wills
General Manager

I have stayed at this hotel probably 50 times in the past 6 yrs. I am writing this as I'm sitting at the hotel lounge. If you want to stay near Milwaukee, but not downtown, this really is the place. The food here is restaurant quality great! 8 times out of 10 I will eat here instead of going out. (The other 2 are because you have to have some variety!)
But their food selection is very good-
Sliders are great, specials are great, cod dinner is great!
Enjoy!

Just a quick overnight stay for a baseball tournament. Hotel staff was super friendly and welcoming. I was worried when I pulled up as I thought the hotel would be a dive, but much to my surprise when I walked in the hotel was very nice. Good price and close to the fields. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. The only downside, the doors slam when closing. Imagine a very large baseball group (13-14 yo boys) in and out of rooms with doors slamming all the time. Other than the doors, would recommend

They renovated this hotel a few years back. It was obviously an extensive makeover. The rooms are nicely decorated. There are two types of rooms that I've had there. One is a suite setup with a sitting area separated from the bedroom area by the bathroom and closet, the other is a conventional setup room. While the rooms look good the beds are rock hard. It is a shame because otherwise they are great rooms but the sleep horribly. The AC units are a bit loud. Bathrooms are cramped in the standard rooms but good in the suites. The towels are inexplicably hidden under the sink on the bottom shelf which isn't convenient when coming out of a shower.

Front desk staff is generally pretty good although there have been exceptions in the past. Transportation from the airport is haphazard at best. Sometimes you get picked up promptly, other times not so much and then all you get is excuses and accusations that you didn't call.

The in hotel restaurant, Altitude, has some nice food. I recommend it for either a beer or dinner. The location is nice in regards to the airport but otherwise I'm not sure it is the best.

Room Tip: Go for the suites.

I came to Milwaukee on business and was lucky enough to have Maureen check me in to the Crowne Plaza hotel at the airport. The hotel is great but Maureen made the normally drab check-in one of the best experiences in my career of traveling. She was courtious, kind and so helpful it was unbelievable. I arrived late from meetings and she welcomed me to the hotel and checked me as quickly so I could have a chance to unwind. She sugggested as I was completely worn out I might try the hotel restaurant as the food was delicious and the staff very helpful, she was absolutely right. I travel to the area rather frequently and although it is not the nearest hotel to my meetings I wouldn't stay anywhere eles as long as the folks are half as pleasant as Maureen. I don't noramlly write reviews but as Maureen was so kind and helpful I could not go without relaying this message to the powers that be. If there is an employee of the month program she has my vote. Thank you, Terry Morris (Please share with Maureen.)

Room Tip: Ask for Maureen, if there is a way to help she will do her best to improve your stay.
