I booked a room, last minute, with Residence Inn in downtown Milwaukee, after calling all around. My husband and I were very happy with the decision to stay there, as the room was a studio apartment, high ceilings (this building used to be the old Gimbals), with a huge curtained window that filtered a soft light into the space. The studio King was bright, airy, and very comfortable.
Just know, that when you drive up to the hotel off Plankinton, you think that this is a convention area, as it does not look like the entrance into a Marriott. I actually drove-off and then doubled back. Not well marked.
Do not dismay, as this hotel delivers: free internet, free breakfast, and only $17 for parking (nearby) per night - not much for downtown. It was also a great value when you consider the fact that you are right downtown, close to shopping, restaurants, and not far from the art museum. Cab ride to the Carnevor (highly recommendable) was only around $5.00.
