I do like the atmosphere and location of this hotel. They forgot to freshen up our room. We came back after being out for the day to find the bed not made and no fresh Towels.
Old school charm and service The decor, the people and the vibe.
We booked a last-minute room at the Pfister and loved our stay from start to finish. The room was beautiful and clean with a great view, service was stellar, and the location could hardly be improved. It doesn't hurt that the hotel is where we stayed after getting engaged! Great experience and we will definitely stay again next time we're in Milwaukee. Pretty much perfect.
Loved the ambience in the lobby. The room we stayed in was clean with a great view is the lake. Have to pay for wifi in this current age of free WiFi everywhere.
The hotel is clean, excellent amenities, friendly staff and good good location. I'd stay again and recommend it to others.
Ask me what I didn't like I loved everything None
Beautiful hotel with tons of character and charm. Good service, friendly staff, comfortable accommodations. Hotel lobby bar and Blu were excellent. Complimentary breakfast in the Cafe offered good food and full choice of anything on menu. Onsite amenities such as spa, shops and additional restaurants offer an extra touch. For the price of the rooms, wifi was not free. Given the necessity in today's day and age, not to mention that it is complimentary in many more basic hotels, this was a big let down. Especially when service in the tower is spotty for mobile without Wifi. It felt like a nickeled and dimes amenity. Clientele felt a bit uppity.
Beautiful historic hotel. Comfortable, clean and we enjoyed our stay.
The Club option is nice...quite a refuge from a horrible room. Couldn't check in until 5:00 despite the 3:00PM check in time. Tub and sink had hair in them. Bedding was ripped.
Amazing hotel. Everything was 5 star.
This is a beautiful hotel We had the $200 room. No fridge or extra sink. I thought it was a little lacking for a luxury hotel. I guess we should of upgraded.
It was great, and the spa was excellent. The view was good from the room. Was surprised Internet was not complimentary.
Nice clean room staff is exceptionally well-trained and friendly Food was very good at two of the restaurants I was able to dine at the catered meals were good, maybe a little better than average, although the waitstaff could have been a little more attentive to clearing plates of finished diners. Although you can tell they have great smoke cleaners, the amount of smoke encountered in the casino is still noticeable, and the only way to the restaurants is through the casino! The checking out process needs some help - I haven't had to physically check out at the front desk in years, unless I wanted to. Usually there is a receipt under your door the day of checkout.
Funcionários simpáticos, excelente seleção de comida no lobby. Não tinha banheira de hidromassagem, apenas uma piscina.
A equipe era amigável. O estabelecimento tinha uma excelente localização. O local era limpo.Todo mundo estava ali para ajudar e certificar-se de que as pessoas aproveitassem a sua estadia. Honestamente, o único problema que tive durante toda a minha estadia foi o Wi-Fi, que ficava falhando. Tirando isso foi perfeito.
Staff were incredibly helpful and sweet. Very cute rooms and spa and roof access was amazing! some loud guests during the night. Bed was firmer than I prefer.
Huge room, comfy bed, pet friendly. Good location. Room rates are not inexpensive, so one would expect a little more for their buck. But not at the Hotel Metro. Apparently, they must feel their location, which is good, and the fact their aren't a large hotel is enough. Luke warm showers, no matter time of day. Nickle and dime with charges...for instance a room service fee of $4 if you charge something on the room. Even if you go and get it yourself in the restaurant to bring up to the room, Ridiculous. And a surprise $4.99 historic preservation fee, which is clearly NOT going into upgrading their hot water delivery system. Because of these things, I would not recommend. There are plenty of other cool places to stay in Milwaukee. Don't waste your money.
This hotel is a historic site. The rooms have character and are large. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would rather stay at a hotel like this than a chain hotel.
Location Restaurants were cute and good food Bar upstairs was cool with all seasons porch Comfortable bed Dog friendly New building Staff was friendly Clean Open air shower (looks cool but it's cold) No cell service in building Valet is a bit pricy Toiletries were sparse (my lotion was half used with a hair on it) Views not good from room (HVAC units and alley)
The staff was very friendly and tried to help the best they could Our rooms were not ready at the check-in time. We had booked two rooms and we were able to get into one room an hour late and the other two hours late. At the price, It was unacceptable.
Intensive training on staff, was very evident where I was approached by every person that worked in the hotel with a smile and inquisitive in nature to see what I might need. Was there for four days for Summerfest and had recently stayed at a Kimpton in Austin on rainy Street and enjoyed it. I was able to the enjoy the upstairs rooftop bar for a very short period as it was too busy . Complementary bicycles were a very nice touch, as I am putting them at two of my rental properties now for clients that come and stay . Not having coffee makers in the room is a mistake. I understand the need to possibly get people out of the rooms too co-mingle down in the lobby, yet it's imperative that the first thing I do when I wake up is have a cup of coffee while I shower, news , prepare . I do this at every hotel I stay and this is the only hotel that has not offered it, and I know that's coming through some type of other reasoning either to generate coffee sales or to make the lobby appear bustling. I do not like the open shower which was the same in the Austin hotel. I like to slide a door shut or have a curtain as I feel rushed to get out of the shower because I am feeling like I am getting water all over the floor, which was somewhat the case. I'm not sure who's design idea that was but not crazy about it .
Localização é excelente para os nossos propósitos. Aquecedor no quarto só operada na ventoinha alta. Foi extremamente barulhento. Baixa da ventoinha não funcionou. Corredor barulhento às 2 am e novamente às 3 da manhã. Café-da-manhã, normalmente muito bom, estava frio esta viagem.
Pessoal amigavel e muita tranquilidade
A distância a pé para as lojas, restaurantes e outras atrações do centro. O buffet de pequeno-almoço no hotel era delicioso!
Cama e travesseiros confortáveis Funcionários simpáticos Lotes de toalhas Teto da pipoca Falta de chuveiro de hidromassagem (?) Decoração Controle remoto não trabalho (às vezes) Sem estacionamento gratuito (US$ 20 manobrista)
I liked the location and the partial vies of the water. The air conditioner unit is older and every time is turned on it roared to life and was loud and continually woke us up.
continental breakfast, location, overnight staff's willingness to fix problems clogged sink in room, evening staff's unwillingness to fix problem or switch rooms
Location was great for where I needed to be. No restaurant during the day. Cleanliness am issue as well. Nothing like the pictures on their web site.
Definitely an economy hotel and nothing more. It becomes pretty obvious that management put all of their money into the restaurant and bar area and doesn't care at all about the maintenance of the rooms Beyond changing bed sheets and making sure door locks work. I lifted up the curtain above the window and saw layers of wallpaper crumbling from years of neglect. This place is in need of a total renovation. The price paid was not terrible since the location is great, right next to the lakefront, but we would not stay here again unless we had to. On top of that, $15 a night for parking in an empty parking garage attached to the hotel? You've got to be kidding me. And then the receptionist lied to me and said there was nowhere else to park other than the street in which I would have to call the police to okay my vehicle overnight. There is no sign that says no overnight parking, and it was apparent that everyone else in the area utilized street parking overnight. So I parked in the street and lo and behold not a single car was ticketed, nor did anyone have a special permit in their window. Tons of stuff was within walking distance, plenty of great restaurants and bikes for rent. This place has a lot of potential if somebody would invest into some much needed updates to Pull this place out of the 1980s See above
Love the location of this hotel. Near the lake and a lot of nice attractions. The new owners are making some nice changes to the hotel. I couldn't connect to the internet with my computer or my IPhone using the hotel wifi connection. When I said something to the person at the front desk she offered me the number of the provider. I told her she should call. I do not ever have problems with my IPhone connecting to a wifi and my computer was correctly configured. It was the hotel"s problem not mine. I found it annoying that the staff didn't take this request seriously. I also mentioned it at check out and the person on duty didn't even respond to my comment.
It was a nice hotel. Dated, but still clean and professional. For the price it was worth it. Parking is not included, but a complimentary breakfast is. It's on the higher end of free breakfasts from mid-price hotels. Waffle maker, eggs, sausages, baked goods, bagels, fruit, cereal, milk, juice, coffee. Enough fuel to get your mornings going well. It had square pillows. And they gave you many. Weird, but not the end of the world.
Our walk to summerfest was short, that's what I liked. This hotel was listed as a 4 star....Wrong! This place was old and dirty. The parking situation was horrible. Don't bother looking at this one, move on. Way over priced the the quality. I would have expected to pay half of that.
Great location. Good bed. Refrigerater ,air conditioning worked great No pool
Major major renovations. Initially thought it was closed. Could not find the lobby easily. Restaurant closed. Construction started early; luckily I was already awake and ends late. Had to walk through construction site. Guy with propane torch on ladder right above my head as I was leaving. The construction job would have been shut down if in Califiornia. Hotel should be shut down or they should give out construction helmets to guests.
The hotel is being renovated and you were forced to walk through the area bring worked on and the only ones without Hard hats were the guests. Having to walk through a construction zone is dangerously. The hotel should have been shut down during this portion of the renovation
The room set up was nice the bed and pillows very comfy. The bathroom was nice and clean. Hotel adequate for quick 1 night stay in an emergency. Hotel is not downtown as claimed. Riverfront view deceiving per website pictures. The pool was 3.9 ft and staff I asked didn't even know they had a pool. Fitness room not open. Room trash can was not emptied. Only saw one staff member explain amenities hotel had to offer. When asked about hotel amenities was instructed its was a brochure in room this was not the case. No microwaves in room or hotel period. Even for a sale price of $100 a night not worth the stay should have been a $60 a night rate. Will not stay again pictures and description of hotel not accurate. Look elsewhere if you want to swim, be in the actual downtown area, warm up food and knowledgeable staff.
The view from my room was spectacular due to all the fall colors along the river and from the Anchorage for dinner. The bed was fantastic, and on par with a Hilton regular traveler, so it was nice to see this location has kept those amazing beds. Hopefully their renovations don't change that. I had a King room, and it was spacious. The restroom is the only part that needed true attention. The hallway noise is notable, and the walls are typical of most places in that you can hear most noises above a conversation level. The facility is undergoing a major renovation, and I was privvy to enjoy one of the last meals available from the Anchorage. My waiter/bartender Brian was FANTASTIC and a wealth of information for local attractions and the man truly knows his alcohol...I'll probably return there after the renovations are completed just to see what they did with removing the beautiful fish tank and that amazing brass bar rail with the elephants. I felt the room charge was okay, and fully expect it will be more when I return. Hopefully the renovations will make it worth it and that Brian will still be working there for dinner/bar service! Great location...
Very comfortable room...simple, but comfortable. No vending machines for snacks; no gift shop.
Although the hotel is under renovation, the guest rooms on three of the floors were not affected. I thought the room was clean and comfortable, and there was ample parking. I would stay there again.
The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the shuttle service was easy to use. Breakfast not included
The staff at the hotel were amazingly friendly, helpful, and seemed to truly care if we enjoyed our stay. A gentlemen name Lamont, allowed my 7 year old niece and I enjoy the pool an extra half hour after closing time. Most staff got to know my niece and I were staying there for a few days just the two of us while her parent worked, they live in Milwaukee and I was visiting from Colorado. A nice gal at the front even asked about our Geocache searches etc. Food was fabulous as well! I really wouldn't change anything it was right on!
Room was clean and hotel was generally quiet. Claimed that a data entry or data transmission error from Kayak or Booking.com caused the loss of our reservation. It took more than 15 minutes to find and correct the error while we waited. The entire first floor is under construction, including entryway, lobby and hallways. Patio was closed except for lunch and dinner.
A equipe é muito amigável! Sempre vão além para ajudar. O aeroporto fica literalmente a uma curta caminhada. Os preços eram razoáveis para o centro de Milwaukee Os travesseiros na cama não eram confortáveis. Podiam ser atualizados/substituídos
Excelente chuveiro, travesseiros melhores do que qualquer hotel, ótima cama. Apreciei as muitas boas opções de café da manhã. Poucas opções de comida no bar.
Ótimo café da manhã e excelente serviço ao cliente.
Very interesting architecture with incorporating the former beer kettles of Pabst into the design of the hotel.
THE CHARM, HISTORY AND DECOR. EXTREMELY WELL DONE-AND SO SO SPECIAL! still pricey for Milwaukee-but gorgeous...I nice splurge. the continental breakfast was really weak...with a full kitchen attached to the hotel, I would up the breakfast to be hotter, more substantial and more WI!

Localização O buffet de café-da-manhã de USD 8,95 foi razoável As camas eram irregulares e inclinadas O piso era úmido Os corredores eram cheiravam mal e eram úmidos A TV era uma box TV que só tinha um canal O controle de temperatura não funcionava bem
Sair Além de tudo deixando
Ficava no centro Ultrapassada e não muito limpo. Barulhento, e taxas extras no meu cartão no final...
