Reviewed 30 October 2013

Reserved 2 rooms on hotel website but when we checked in they showed only one. Good thing I had printed confirmation. Still the manager hinted at us sharing a room. Not an acceptable option! Guest services need some work but a nice property with unique rooms. Location is out of the way but under development and you can get almost anywhere in Milwaukee from here easily.

I had the opportunity to stay an this unique hotel.. located in what once the brewing building of Pabst brewery, the hotel has great historical features such as enormous copper brewing kettles incorporated throughout the hotel. Visually the place is amazing.. a lot of thought was put into this place.. echoing the days when Pabst was a giant of the brewery world. Its a hotel you want to explore as a guest. Since it is a nonstandard building, many rooms have different layouts.. They do come with full kitchens, which I fond to be odd, unless they are catering mostly to extended stay travelers. Despite the cool hip feel of the place public areas.. the rooms didn't seem to fit that aspect, which i guess it is ok.. but I wasn't sure what market they were aiming for (hip boutique hotel.. or extended stay traveler). With just a little more effort.. this place could be brilliant. The area the hotel is located, is not near many of the places near the city.. so a car or cab is needed if you want to explore more of Milwaukee. One of the nights I was there, the only restaurant / bar connected to the hotel was closed for a private event so you had to drive elsewhere for dinner or drinks. Though I had a unique experience as a guest,, and the public areas are very nice, I would look at what option fits your needs best when selecting a hotel in Milwaukee.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs, make sure you have a room that is accessable via an elevator. Some...

Beautiful decor! Love the fact that they remodeled the old Pabst Brewery building. Such a unique boutique hotel. Here is a bullet list:

Pros:
Unique decor - awesome industrial loft feel
Huge loft style rooms with full fridge, microwave, stove, etc.
Okay breakfast
Close to interstate
Great pub restaurant downstairs

Cons:
First in a run down area. Once it is developed, this hotel will be packed all of the time.
Parking - while someone else mentioned free parking on streets on weekend, don't trust it. We parked during the "free hours" overnight and still got a ticket. (at 2 am)

While it is close to downtown, there are some shady areas that I wouldn't really feel safe walking through at night. Like I said, once this is all developed, this hotel will be packed constantly.

Some of the staff were a little rude, but most including Bea, Chad and Adam truly are shining stars!

Overall, we would definitely stay again!

If you are looking for a one of a kind experience and want to get away from cookie cutter national chain hotels, this hotel is for you. The room decor is up-to-the-minute. The loft-like room is very spacious with a fully stocked kitchen down to plates and appliances. The central atrium features historic copper vats formerly used to make Pabst beer. What's not to like? Free breakfast was consciously made for all including vegans. If you play your cards right, parking is free on the nearby streets especially over the weekend. While away from heart of downtown, the expressway is right there with very easy access to all of Milwaukee. The area will improve and this star will even shine brighter.

Very arty and fun decor (huge screws holding up shelving and serving as tp holder).
Great staff and common areas. Loved the copper vats in the interior atrium. At their pub we had wonderful hamburgers with French fried onion "strings" and great selection of beer--try the porter that's dark and coffee flavored.

A large building is being built out the back--we enjoyed watching the workmen in the am but there were some thumping noises so you may want to ask for a room away from the construction.

Very unique hotel! Perhaps the cleanest rooms I've ever seen! The entire hotel is a history lesson. Staff was friendly and helpful. Attached pub had great beers and appetizers. The giant pretzel is a must try! Enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back. Great experience and not your run of the mill hotel!

This hotel is amazing. I felt like I just had to pay it forward for the great service and accommodations at this hotel. There is so much cool history about the hotel and the Pabst neighborhood. I am recommending this hotel to anyone that is anyone and everyone because I just loved my stay here and it made visiting Milwaukee well worth it. By far one of the best hotels I have patronized over the years. Clean, comfortable and even a little bit quirky because it's a one-of-a-kind Pabst Beer Theme. I used to stay at the Hilton and the Iron Horse hotel because of the close proximity to downtown Milwaukee where I frequent. I was disappointed more than once at both of those hotels since the service began declining in the past year. Don't get me wrong, I do like both of those hotels for different reasons despite the lack of attention to customer needs, but the Brewhouse blows them out of the water tenfold in all ways. If you want something less stuffy with better overall accommodations and great service then the Brewhouse is the place. Kudos to the staff training. Everyone at the front desk, the breakfast lady and even the maintenance man (Regis?) picking up the trash outside were engaged and genuinely seemed interested making sure I had everything I needed even when they were really busy. The complimentary breakfast in the morning does not have any hot items. But if you're like most people, fresh bakery and a hot cup of coffee and yogurt are sufficient. You could cook your own meals in your room if you wanted to. From what I understand each room has it's own kitchen. I plan to use my latest experience at this hotel as an example for my corporate team. Good "memorable" service goes a long way.

The ninety oversized rooms, all of them suites with large windows, exposed beams, and brick walls, are decorated in a stylish, neo-victorian, steampunk decor.
