Wife and I are late 40s and really don't like the noisy, cheap wood frame hotels that seem to be popping up everywhere. Visiting my kid in Milwaukee and needed a downtown room. Went thru Priceline and came up with "fortress Hilton" at a decent price in the right spot. Called the desk, ask about the particulars and was impressed with a great staffer who placed us in 405 - away from any street noise.
The building has history, beautifully done with finish and trim that cannot be duplicated today - this is a gem.
Quiet, solid, good staff and reasonable price.
Not sure who made the decision to spend the millions and renovate the building, but wise move. This puts the Palmer house to shame.
In 48 years, my all time favorite hotel.
