My boyfriend and I lived this hotel. It is in a great location. This hotel is very unique. Our room had a kitchenette in it. This came in handy for all of the delicious cheese! It is within walking distance of the lake, the art museum, and the riverwalk.

Delightful, comfortable, elegant. Sick of the chain hotels? The Knickerbocker is the perfect alternative. Loved the ambience of stepping back in time! Helpful front desk! They were training but found the answers to my questions. Spacious, clean rooms! Hated to leave.

When going to college in 1969 I walked past the Knickerbocker on my way to class on weeks I wanted to pocket my bus pass money ($3). I always wanted to stay . So, here so, so many years later I was back in Milwaukee to attend a funeral. Yes, the hotel didnt have some of the nice things that...

First, to check in, there's no where to park. We put our hazards on and parked in a No parking zone to go check in. Once inside, very small check in counter. The young woman behind the counter, (who we think just may live here), greeted us warmly. However during check in conversation she seemed to have a lot of...

Wonderful Milwaukee condo hotel on Lake Michigan. One bedroom suite with separate kitchen and living room. Very clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location to downtown Milwaukee. Nice bar and restaurant. Also took advantage of the Knick Spa. Fabulous. Highly recommend.

We visited Milwaukee to see our daughter who lives and works here. On a recommendation from a friend, we booked the Knickerbocker on the Lake for three nights. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Walking down the canopy covered entrance way, our eyes widened as we took in the 1930's original inlaid marble floors, crystal chandeliers and...

We love renovated, art deco style hotels. But we had never tried the Knickerbocker. Our daughter was in Milwaukee for a conference and so we chose the Knickerbocker because of it's proximity to our favorite restaurant, the Lake Park Bistro. The lobby is tastefully refurbished, quiet and elegant, with low-level lighting that puts you in a calm state right away....

I was looking for a room downtown during the peak summer season. The other hotels I had considered were so pricey and being originally from Milwaukee, I knew weren't really worth it. I happened upon the Knickerbocker and was able to get a 1 bedroom suite for less than what I would get an average King bed for at other...

I stayed in room 308 on November 12, 2016. I purchased a suite thinking that it would be better than a regular room. Unfortunately, there were visible stains on the carpet and the toilet seat had a large crack in it. While the public rooms are nice, my guest room was way below acceptable standards.

I stay at numerous hotels throughout he country every year. Had very high hopes for the Knickerbocker this past July. Was looking forward to a good family trip to my home town of Milwaukee. Location downtown near Lake Michigan and size of rooms (actually converted apartments) was very attractive. Unfortunately, was likely the worst hotel we have stayed at in...
