Reviewed 14 April 2014

Loved the unique vibe of the plaza. Rooms were immaculate including a full kitchen. Old retro hotel within walking distance to Brady street. Breakfast was outstanding. We will definitely stay again. Rooms were charming.

Very pleasurable ... Nicely furnished with several amenities such as Kurig Coffee, and full appliances. Breakfast was exceptional: tasty with a wide variety of choices. Location is hard to beat. Parking was very convenient. as well.

The hotel was very old but that's what was so unique about it. The rooms were updated nicely and very clean. Radiators were a little noisy. I would defiantly
stay here again. The location was great. Staff very friendly. Restaurant staff and food were great.

We booked a room for the few of us that did not want to drive home after a bachelorette party. The room was gorgeous, parking was a breeze, and the location was perfect. The only issue would be that the radiator went off around three am and it sounded like two pipes being banged together.

After staying at other "boutique" hotels on Milwaukee's East Side, I am glad I finally found The Plaza. The suites are huge, have a large kitchenette and are very well appointed. One minor criticism, which I've heard might get fixed during a future renovation: bathrooms are tiny (but functional and incredibly clean.

I had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath corner suite. Beds were comfortable, carpet was plush, furnishings were new. You can walk anywhere on the East Side and be on the lakefront in 5 minutes.

Service was above average- everyone was friendly and able to answer questions.

Don't miss breakfast at Cafe at the Plaza. It's a great place!
