Attending a conference in downtown Milwaukee with spouse, I wanted to find something at a better rate than the conference offering AND have a place to relax and cook a meal or two rather than having to eat out every day for 4 days. High expectations! And, they were fulfilled beautifully at the Residence Inn Downtown Milwaukee!
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, as you would expect in most Residence Inns. The building itself is historically interesting because it is housed in the formerly glorious Gimbels Department Store. It is amazing how nicely the architecture of the hotel incorporates the historic feel of the Gimbels building. Additionally, it is easy to walk from the Inn to Conference Center activities through a series of connecting walkways in the Grand Avenue Mall. One does not have to endure the wind, rain, or cold in order to get to Conference or shopping sites. Everything, from parking to secure entries to and from the Grand Avenue Mall, has been thoughtfully designed for safety and attractiveness.
Breakfast is tasty and served in a well-designed, comfortable room. There is always a waitstaff person on duty, working hard to accommodate guest needs. This thoughtful touch has an additional benefit which I have written about elsewhere: with waitstaff clearly on duty, it is less likely that there will be the sort of difficulties guests sometimes endure at other hotels, namely guests appearing for breakfast barefoot and still in pajamas, looking as though they had just crawled out of bed. Thank you to the Residence Inn Downtown Milwaukee for creating an inviting atmosphere in the breakfast room.
Finally, the staff at the front desk are extraordinarily friendly, helpful and sweet. Always a smile, always helpful --- they make downtown Milwaukee a desirable place to visit. We will be back!
