I really enjoyed our stay. The hotel lobby and rooms were very clean and comfortable. The building had a lot of charm. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Dislikes: thin walls, changing shower temps.

We stayed at this property while attending a conference in town. What a beautiful and historic building. The staff is wonderfully friendly and attentive. LOVED the bed in my room and having a full kitchen ~ really wished I could've stayed on longer.

The location is fantastic. So many things to do in see in walking distance.

Don't miss breakfast in the Café. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the counter, a practice in restaurant seating you just don't see very often! Eggs benedict rocked!

Thank you Plaza team for making us feel so welcome, hope to be back soon!

Spent two nights there this past week with a group of work friends, as we attended a conference. Rooms were spacy, plenty of offsite parking, unique building with character, must have been quite the place in its time, front desk staff was friendly, and offered assistance when ever needed. Great flavorful coffee served in a large mug. I love mugs for coffee in the morning. Tried a baked oatmeal entrée selection for breakfast, didn't know what to expect, though was really pleased. I would go back to the little diner café just for that and the great coffee.

Room very clean. Like that the blanket was wrapped in two sheets. Bed comfortable. Windows opened for fresh air. Having a full kitchen was a plus. Front desk attentive. The food in the café was outstanding.

I loved the hotel. Seemed like an original residence with the updates of a modern hotel. It did not have an elevator, so if you have disabilities that will not allow you to climb at least one flight of stairs, then you should request 1st floor accommodations. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go downtown.

I love staying at the Plaza Hotel in my once a year trip to Milwaukee. Cecilia, David and Darus have all been at the Plaza for over a decade. They each take customer service to the next level. The hotel is charming and was remodeled 2 years ago. The hotel is only a couple blocks from Lake Michigan. The location is walking distance from everywhere.

This is partially a residential hotel - i.e., some people stay there long-term. The rooms [or, rather, studios] are appropriately furnished, although a bit dingy. Mine looked into a courtyard, so was short on daylight. Kitchen very well equipped, everything was quite clean. No big problems to report - the parking seems a bit of a rip-off [$8 per day, self-parking]. This place definitely has some old-school charm. The breakfast 'lounge' looks like it leapt out from a Norman Rockwell picture. A nice 10-minute walk to the museum.
