Amazing breakfast. Wonder king bed. The lobby rivals all others. They did a great job working with the tremendous constraints of Covid. All guests and staffed were masked in common areas. Tissue and hand sanitizers were everywhere. Pool participants were limited along with elevator riders.
Beautiful hotel, the paintings were incredible, great staff. The food at our conference (held at the hotel) was the best I've ever had at a conference.
The elevators were very slow on the "old" side of the hotel
Room and view was amazing! The lobby was beautiful and historic.
The service was amazing, cannot stress enough how cool and polite and unpretentious the staff was.......I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a hotel in Milwaukee.
Ask me what I didn't like I loved everything
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.
Couldn't check in until 5PM. Dirty room with rippe
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.
Luxury experience with old world charm.
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 Hotel, Great Experience
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.
You may want to upgrade
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.
Old school charm and service
The decor, the people and the vibe.
Beautiful historic hotel. Comfortable, clean and we enjoyed our stay.
