Posted Jan 23, 2017
Pros: Staff, clean room, great restaurant.
Cons: Noise from heating system.
Location: Great location with many restaurants in the area.
The hotel was very nice and staff were very friendly. The restaurant had excellent food and service. The hotel is in a great location and I was able to walk to my meetings. The room was clean and comfortable and spacious. The heating system did make some noise but not overly bad. I would stay there again!

Birthday getaway

5 out of 5
by from Oconomowoc,Wi.
Posted Jan 19, 2017
Pros: It was clean, inviting, quiet,fantastic room , friendly staff,close to major attractions downtown.
Cons: Maybe cut down on the temptations in the fridge and next to the coffee machine that are expensive.
Location: Right down town, most in walking distance or a brief taxi ride, nightclubs, casino, restaurants , shopping, brewery tours , the lake and museums.
Last minute booking for a overnight stay went smooth, we were greeted at the door by a friendly doorman, check in was done in two minutes, the Hotel had a cozy nice feeling as soon as we walked into the Lobby, our room was a surprise, it was huge with a separate sitting area, large bathroom with Aveda products, comfortable bed and very CLEAN, I travel with bleach wipes but none were needed!! Highly recommend this place, restaurant and bar were also great, we had dinner and breakfast.

Nice hotel. Good if discounts available. Not worth standard room price over Hilton or Marriott in the area. Also, there are historical taxes and a $27 per night parking charge they don't tell you about until you're already there. Great restaurant and great proximity to rest of downtown

Downtown Milwaukee

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: upgrade interior decor
Location: nice Italian restaurant across the street
Slightly understated decor, great size rooms. room on the third floor heard everything out of the window, trash collection, etc. Loved the large tub and used it. a friend booked directly with the hotel at a much better price. that was disappointing.

Not as advertised

Posted Nov 16, 2016
Cons: Accurate information on website. Also when we checked in there were obviously 3 people not 2.
Location: Milwaukee is great. There are many other nice hotels nearby to this one that I would suggest instead.
I got a queen suite room for myself, my husband and my 17 year old son. It said it slept 3 people on the website. It had one queen bed and a tiny loveseat that was not a pull-out. I ended up having to pay for a rollaway bed for my son. When I called down about getting the bed (at 10:30pm at night when we realized there was not a pull-out) it took them an hour to deliver the bed to us. The staff were very rude about it when I questioned it saying that it was my fault for booking with Expedia instead of directly with them. I did look closely at their own website before booking however and it did say the queen suite slept 3 people. They admitted that only a few of their queen suites actually sleep more than 2 people.

I read other reviews before going to this hotel. While I'll agree it could use some updates, we didn't have any problems with noise, smell, temperature or plumbing. The restaurant and bar were both nice, room was as expected.

Awesome Boutique Hotel in the Heart of Milwaukee!

Posted Nov 1, 2016
Pros: Forgot the Valet started our stressful travels wonderful, they were again accommodating and so easy.
I found this Hotel last minute for one night & hoped it was good, as this was an addition to our trade Show stay and could not secure the extra night at the Hotel we booked prior. It was a short taxi ride form the WI. Conference Center & a great walk also. We had wished we had our entire stay at the Metro, it was that great. The Room felt like a Suite and the Soft Art Deco Design and History made it a luxury & romantic. The Restaurant was excellent and the room service was on time and very accommodating (The Coffee was Steaming Hot!!!). I highly recommend staying at the Metro Hotel and anytime I travel to Milwaukee, that is where I'll stay.

Hotel is always nice but the restaurant that just changed hands to Pastiche was a complete disaster. The bar area was understaffed and Breakfast in the morning had only on server who could not keep up with the tables. I would not go there for the food.

Pros: Location in downtown. That they have their own little cabs. Onsite bar and restaurant.
Cons: Décor in rooms can always be updated. Maybe the sheets to a higher quality.
Location: Summerfest! Downtown. Museums. Shopping. Beer tours. Eating.
I have stayed at this hotel a few times when in town visiting family or attending an event in downtown Milwaukee. I love the ol;d school style and that it has a full bar and restaurant on site. It also has a cab service. Cool little London type cabs that can drop you off anywhere around downtown. It has rom for extra beds if your plans change and I think overall it felt like a very comfortable place that I felt safe walking in and out of for a few days to call home.
