This hotel is in a great location in a nice area of downtown Milwaukee. Upon arrival, I was told a regular room was not available, so I was given a sweet overlooking the Milwaukee River. What a terrific view that was! The room was perfect. I had a comfortable king-sized bed, which enabled me to get a great night's sleep....

Wow. We stayed at this hotel for some sightseeing in Milwaukee. It's right on the River Walk, just a few blocks from the Milwaukee Public Market. The staff was overly friendly and super nice, you really couldn't ask for better service. Everyone greets you and makes you feel special. We will be happy to stay again as the rooms are...

Per my review in 2012, I said I would stay again, so I did, and I haven't changed my opinion. This is a great place to stay downtown Milwaukee. It is clean, comfortable, and very close to everything downtown. I'll finish this review like my last one, I will stay again!

My son and I stayed here on a weekend getaway in April - coming from I94, it's super easy to get to! Not only easy and quick to get to, but the location downtown can't be beat. We were right on the river - upon check in, I'd mentioned that it was my son's first trip to Milwaukee and the...

The rooms are awesome, and everything is really close by as far as restaurants, bars, and whatnot. The Milwaukee public market is close by as well for some grocery items, but the nearest grocery store is a little bit of a hike. I didn't honestly realize there is a stove, and full size fridge in the room. What really blew...

I've stayed in a lot of Residence Inns, but this one is quite different from the rest because of its downtown, big-city feel. With new carpet and decor, this is a fresh change of pace! Our family shared a 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite. The high ceilings and expansive windows make the whole experience feel upscale. We'd come again!

We have stayed at this property eight times in the last two years. We discovered on this visit they had updated carpeting and furnishings in the rooms and hallways. For the first time, we had three minor issues which were fixed in a timely way. We stay here because five theater venues and many restaurants are within walking distance.

We spent a Friday night in a king suite overlooking the river. The staff was wonderful and the room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was hectic at 8:30am on Saturday. It was hard for staff to keep up with demand. We would stay again!

Stayed at the Residence Inn over the March 11-12 weekend. One of the worst hotel stays I have ever had. They have the bear minimum when it comes to "extended stay suites". But the control they have over making your stay pleasing is laughable. The room next to mine was loud until at least 1:00 am. Then the staff came...
