The Milwaukee River Hilton is your all around hotel for family or business in the Milwaukee area. Right down the street from the Bayshore Mall complex which has EVERYTHING you can find in downtown Milwaukee. Say hello to Vance in the morning at the door, or have a drink in the evening from Jill in the bar. Enjoy their wonderful restaurant cuisine. And trustt me - the Room Manager Kathy will make sure your stay is great! The staff at the Milwaukee River Hilton will treat you exactly like they want to be treated!

Thank you very much for commenting on items that we here at the Hotel are very proud of.....our location, our staff, and our acclaimed restaurant, The Anchorage!

Guests appreciate our unique setting along the river banks that still offers convenient access to both Downtown Milwaukee as well as to the great attractions locally here in Glendale such as the Bayshore Town Center. Our entire staff also works hard to create an ideal setting for both our business and social travelers.

Lastly, The Anchorage has re-established itself as a dining icon for the area, soon to celebrate its 40th anniversary! (The Anchorage also has its own Trip Advisor listing for your direct staff/culinary comments as well.)

I'm so very glad that to read that you are well-treated during your stays with us, and look forward to offering the same for your future visits!

Rooms are Clean and comfortable, but bathrooms could use some updating. Great breakfast and friendly staff. We enjoy the pumpkin decorating contest every October! The Minyans got our vote. We have tried all the hotels close to Whitefish Bay and Hilton wins hands down.

Thank you for your comments, both on our Hotel as well as our Pumpkin Decorating Contest! (It's an annual event that creates teamwork and artistry with our staff members, as well as conversation and intrigue for our guests!)

The Hotel and our acclaimed restaurant, The Anchorage, are fixtures for the entire Northshore communities, encompassing the likes of Glendale, Shorewood, and Whitefish Bay. We are also convenient to all of the business and social offerings of Downtown Milwaukee also!

We thank you for commenting on our housekeeping and restaurant staffs, as their efforts really shine for our guests.

Hope to welcome you back again soon, ahead of the next pumpkin contest!

We spent two nights in this hotel. Incredibly clean and quiet. It is about 40 years old and shows some age, but all of that can be overlooked by the fantastic customer service. Everyone from the front desk, to the housekeeping staff to the maintenance folks all make sure they acknowledge you and want to be sure your stay is going well.
Only negative is the elevator is very slow.
Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for your comments following your recent stay with us!

We do take great pride in the collective levels of customer service and cleanliness that we provide our guests, be it in the Hotel or in our restaurant, The Anchorage. In all departments, guests state that they feel like they are 'at home'!

The hotel and The Anchorage are about to celebrate its 40th anniversary. We have done moderate remodeling to accent the original classic looks of our unique facility, such as new wallpaper and carpeting to highlight all of the natural oak that is coveted by other facilities!

We hope to welcome you back again!

Thank you for your comments and your return visits to our unique Hotel! All very appreciated!

We are very proud of our Hotel, our wonderful location, and our signature restaurant, The Anchorage. But we are most proud of the levels of customer service shown by our entire staff, including those at our Front Desk and Bell Stand. (Nice to read that Vance is slowly becoming a sort of customer service icon to those he encounters!)

Please come again soon!

The quality of the rooms were that of a Red Roof Inn not a Hilton. If it wasn't for the area being sold out because of the Lacrosse Tournament we were in town for, we would have left to stay somewhere else. The first room was dirty, the carpet was stained everywhere and there were holes/tears in the carpet and the closet door was completely off center. I requested to be moved due to the poor conditions and the over amount of noise from the unit next to us as they were having a party and being very loud for the time of night it was. The second room was no better. Spider webs in multiple corners of the room, wallpaper tore and hanging off the wall, wallpaper coming off the walls in a straight line, the bathroom door was warped and the floor around the tub was gross. Something really needs to be done about the rooms and the cleanliness/upkeep. Secondly..I left my pants in a drawer of the first room (338) and the following morning I realized as I went to finish getting dressed I had no pants. I called the desk...they had me on hold for over 5 min and then came back to ask me if they could call me back later. NO. I had to leave and couldn't because my pants were in the other room. I can't believe they asked to call me back after leaving me on hold for so long. Seriously...It was a bad weekend.

Thank you for your time and comments following your stay with us.

As was done on other online forums to which you provided similar commentary, we do apologize, and have done so directly to you repeatedly by other members of our staff, regarding the circumstances of your stay with us.

Many of our other guests, including those affiliated with the same Lacrosse tournament that brought you to our Hotel, complimented us on the services they received, on the levels of customer service shown to them by our staff members, and of the overall quality of our Hotel and award-winning restaurant, The Anchorage.

Our Hotel also has received very high marks from our overnight and dining patrons on this very Trip Advisor site, where we take great pride in working hard to earn these marks. Both our Hotel and our restaurant also have earned the 2013 Award of Excellence from Trip Advisor as well.

The condition of your particular guestroom was certainly not up to our collective standards. I did thank our Front Desk for making the correct decisions in relocating your room as best as we could during a busy weekend session, as well as admonish our Housekeeping and Maintenance staffs for the gaffes that allowed an out-of-order room to be placed back into general inventory, and was subsequently checked-in for your stay.

This room is certainly not indicative of our entire Hotel, as we have made substantial enhancements to our property over the past few years.

I sympathize with your inconveniences that weekend, and assure you that corrective measures on all applicable fronts have been done.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It has a beautiful view of a river from the restaurant. The food in the restaurant was a bit pricey, but was excellent and the staff helpful. The banquet facilities, staff, and food was beyond my expectations. The ease of check in and checkout was surprising. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Thank you so much for your comments about our hotel, and in particular, the dining and catering capabilities shown by our signature restaurant, The Anchorage!

Many events hosted here at our Hotel can trace their success to the quality, attentiveness, and setting of our facility and The Anchorage. We are quite proud of their efforts, and are glad to read that they were well-received!

The Anchorage also has their own dedicated Trip Advisor listing so they can be formally recognized as well.

the folks at the Anchorage are the best - Sandy, Ray, Jill and Brian make you feel right at home when you are away from your own family - I would highly recommend a stay here sometime. The hotel is also a great location from Bayshore and close to downtown as well.

Thank you so very much for your warm comments about our signature restaurant at our hotel, The Anchorage.

As we are about to celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are very proud of both the ambiance and quality within the restaurant itself, as well as the dedicated staff members that make dining there a positive experience!

You join the many other guests who fully appreciate having such a high-quality restaurant and bar setting within the confines of a full-serviced hotel environment! And one that enjoys the location benefits to both Glendale’s and Milwaukee’s businesses and attractions.

I highly encourage you to also provide these comments directly to The Anchorage's own dedicated Trip Advisor site, where these staff members you cited here can be specifically recognized to other dining fans and patrons of The Anchorage!

We thank you again for your continued patronage of our Hotel, of our unique restaurant, and look forward to welcoming you back again very soon!
