I have stayed several times at this attractive, art deco hotel, sightly off the beaten path but not too far from attractions in Milwaukee. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable; the overall effect is luxurious without being overdone. Though the bathroom is "compact," there is an extra basin outside the bath which helps. A restaurant, lounge and coffee shop on premises, along with available room service, offer great convenience. Starbucks in the lobby cafe in the morning is a great plus, but note that the hours are short. Also, room service and the hotel restaurant close early on certain days.
We had a housekeeping problem during a recent stay, making for a poor night's sleep. When I told the front desk in the morning they apologized but offered no compensation. Because I'd stayed here before without incident I was willing to give them another chance, and when I called back to book for another night and asked if they could give me a good deal because of problem during my last stay, they not only gave me an excellent rate but went above and beyond to ensure that everything was perfect for us. It is clear that they strive to maintain the highest standards and are prepared to remedy mistakes.
The one negative for the hotel is that they now charge $20 for parking and guests are required to use the parking deck instead of the adjacent lot. Until a year ago free parking made this an attractive alternative to the downtown hotels, but now one has to compare the costs more closely considering this may be a less desirable location for many. In addition, I object to parking in the deck when the lot is available. As a woman, coming back later in the evening I do not like to walk through parking decks alone and much preferred the lighted lot, close to the hotel, where I have a clear view of my surroundings.
