I never review a hotel that I'm currently staying in unless I am not happy. Except for now. I travel a lot for work so I am familiar with three and four star hotels. This Doubletree is not the fanciest hotel at its price level, but what it does, it does right. Here is the good stuff:

1. Spic & Span clean!
2. Staff are all super friendly & helpful
3. That free Doubletree cookie - and I don't even like sweets!
4. Customer service - I had trouble with the temperature in my room (I like a cold room for sleeping).
The friendly maintenance man opened my window (they open - who knew?!) and brought me a fan
since the heating/AC system was in neutral mode (kind of cool in Milwaukee right now). Then I got a
coupon for another free cookie for my trouble. Yeah baby.
5. Two free bottles of water, a bag of snacks & a granola bar left by housekeeping every day (this
might be a Hilton HHonors perk, but heck people it's free to join!)
6. Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries - Way nice at this price point
7. There are two free to use washer/dryers (nice ones) in the fitness room. That is a first for me that
will save me $30 -$40 in dry cleaning charges over the course of the week.
8. Free high speed internet access - It burns my toast to pay up to $15/day for internet access.
9. Nice clean big mini-fridge & microwave in the room. Why is it that high dollar hotels don't offer
rooms with this amenity???
10. Lots of TV channels and they don;t try to sell you in-room movies at $15 a pop

If anything goes drastically wrong before I leave I'll let you know, but in the meantime if you're coming to Milwaukee I don't think you can go wrong with the Doubletree at City Center.

P.S. Visit Boston Store two blocks away - One of the last vestiges of the traditional department store.
There is a nice indoor mall adjacent.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room on a high floor. I'm on the top floor but no corner room. I hear the corne...

Spent the night here to attend a friend's party located downtown. The hotel was a great location to that so the cab ride was minimal. The room price was great and the staff very helpful. The attatched parking garage with valet parking was very convenient. The rooms / beds were very compfortable, could have slept all day! Thank you for the great stay. Never had a chance to check out the other amenities though, next time.

We spent the past weekend in Milwaukee. A nice get away from Chicago,
Had a great time at the free Miller Brewery tour which includes 3 full glasses of beer. They also have a gift shop that is not as outrageously priced as most.

Had lunch at Mader's a landmark German restaurant. The appetizer plate was too much for two people to finish. They also have a giant pretzel served with mustard that can feed 2-3 people!

Had dinner Saturday night at the Five O'clock Club on State Street. If you haven't been to this restaurant you should really make it a priority. Best steaks ever and they have that Wisconsin Supper Club feel.
On the way out of town we completed the weekend with a stop at the Milwaukee Public Market, lots to see here and be sure you are hungry since there are a lot of things to eat and drink as well as buy.

Lots to do in Milwaukee, we try to go for the weekend at least once a year!

Room Tip: We always try to get higher floors. They seem to be quieter.

I was actually staying at another hotel whose restaurant was closed. So I went to Doubletree to eat. At their restaurant I was met by Chris Curray. What a great host and waiter. His friendliness made a difficult stay in the city refreshing. The food was excellent as well. Chris is a credit to the hotel and I will be eating there again soon.
