Decent hotel in a sleepy part of town
Posted Jun 27, 2016 on Hotels
This older building in the "heart" of downtown was charming and centrally located. However, we thought that by being in the "heart" of downtown, we would have easy access to dining, attractions, and shopping. There IS a mall across the street from the hotel, but most of the stores have closed. There ARE some restaurants around, but not a fast-food one where you can grab a quick bite (except for a Subway). And as far as attractions, well, Milwaukee is certainly not what I would call "touristy." Do check out the Public Museum (within walking distance), but aside from that, there's not much else to walk to. We were in town for a baseball game, and that was a good experience (take a city bus from the hotel to the park for $2.25 each way), but the city itself is kind of blah. Nice hotel though - clean rooms, friendly service, and decent breakfast for the price.
