Historical Traveller Reviews of Hyatt Regency Milwaukee Hotel

Basic Hyatt

from avillebud
I stayed at the Hyatt a week ago and the room was just average. I would even say the bed was above average, however I think I was on an executive floor. The room was not horrible and it was also nothing to write home about. What I did enjoy was that as a guest at the hotel you could go to the local YMCA for $5 a day. The YMCA facility is very nice.

Basic business stay at the Hyatt Regency

from dotdty86
I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee in September to attend two concurrent business conferences. One event was at the hotel, the other at the adjacent Midwest Airlines convention center.

The Hyatt offers standard business hotel fare with moderately sized-rooms, wireless internet and good condition. Surprisingly, there is no in-room coffee although there are free machines on each floor. Room service and restaurants are typical for Hyatt: moderate quality at pretty high prices.

Location is the best feature for the hotel. It is connected by skywalk to the convention center, parking garage, Grand Avenue mall and other downtown venues. It is just across the river from the theater district and a number of restaurants.

On the downside, the actual street-level entrances to the hotel are somewhat dark and foreboding, especially from 3rd or 4th Street. The hotel appearance is very sterile, monochromatic and starting to show its fashion age (about 30 years?). No pool or whirlpool.

Conference facilities are pretty good. Several of the smaller rooms have windows, a welcome sight compared to the usual dark and dreary meeting rooms. If your trip purpose is to work and sleep (as mine was), the hotel is fine.

Stayed for 3 nights, and it was OK

The rooms are small. This was a business trip, and we stayed in the Exec Plan room level ($20 more than typical room rate includes breakfast, excellent Internet connections). This hotel is condusive for business meetings and overnite guests for weddings in the area or even the Hotel's banquet rooms; certainly not for vacation guests. It is really geared towards business travelers.

Parking is connected to the hotel but is $15/day, and it is not under the Hyatt Mgmt. They were working on the parking garage and parking was limited due to reconstruction.

The Room Service food was mediocre at best, and the Waitstaff was very accommodating. Did not get a chance to dine at Polaris, but I'm sure the view is great. With a small problem, it was ameliorated very quickly with an ammenity of a plate of cookies and beverages and apologies all around.

Stayed on the 14th floor and there was a hint of smoke (either from the sports bar or Lobby area) that waffs all the way up there, and into the room. I'm particularly allergic to smoke so that was my only negative, otherwise the Hyatt is clean and very accessible to the downtown area.

Good stay!

We stayed at the Hyatt this past weekend for a Cardinals-Brewers game. The staff was exceptionally nice and professional. The room was fairly standard but the beds were wonderful - I slept better here than at home! Our view wasn't that great but for one night it wasn't a big deal. On the negative side, the sports bar charged $4 for one bottle of beer - almost as much as the ballpark!
The Sunday Brunch was very good with a wide selection and a chef that made omelettes to order. Service at brunch however seemed slow.

Overall, a good stay and we would return!

Just another basic hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
For my recent visit to Milwaukee I stayed at the Hyatt on Kilbourn. It was a hotel room... mostly clean with a decent bed, a few movie channels and a good location. The hotel itself is sterile with no personality. As a single woman with a car rental I was extremely unhappy about the car park situation. The garage used is a public garage attached to the hotel and the MidWest Center. It is large and completely unattended except for the exit. Returning anytime but particularly at night was uncomfortable as you have to walk through the deserted garage. Next time I'll try the Wyndham.

Good location, but feeling tired

from svicious22
The Hyatt has a good location for most people and is within walking distance of many activities. It has a revolving rooftop restaurant/bar that is worth a drink for its unique perspective of Milwaukee, but you can do better in the area for food. Service was fine both there and at the front desk, and the breakfast was quite good at the lobby restaurant.

The most distinguishing feature of the hotel is its 18 story atrium which is not the least bit charming. In addition to having a rather sterile and austere feel by design, the hotel is showing its age. The rooms are average sized and the mattress was rock hard. The room was clean except for one water glass that was rather disgusting and should never have been placed in the bathroom. The hotel does not really possess four star amenities, but seems more like a basic three star. Parking charges are very steep for the Milwaukee area-it feels like gouging.

Excellent rates that mitigate most of the above described shortcomings may be available through Priceline on this hotel.

Good choice

from cgrl
I stayed here for 5 nights on business. The room was very clean, housekeeping service was great, the bed comfortable and it was quiet at night. The heat/A/C worked great. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, which was a nice plus. As a woman traveling alone, I felt safe here. There are a lot of restaurants in the area and it's close to Grand Avenue Mall. The Italian restaurant, Calderone's, across the street was quite good. Polaris, on top of the hotel, is a bit pricey but fun since it's a revolving restaurant. One plus is the sports bar in the lobby. You can ask for the food to go and they will prepare a room service tray for you. You can avoid the room service fees this way. They were very nice about it. I did not eat at the Pilsner Palace.

I think this is a good hotel for business travelers but since they don't have a pool or hot tub, I would probably not choose it for my family.

Hyatt has great location, OK rooms, no pool, no whirlpool

from pvbooster
The downtown Milwaukee Hyatt is a fine hotel if a night is all your looking for. The rooms were small but nicely furnished and not tacky. I would get a little claustrophobic after several nights though. Not much to say about the room. I had a great view to the East but the window was very dirty. The television had HBO and some cable channels as well as local channels. In the morning they dropped off a complementary Milwaukee paper at the door. The rooftop restaurant/bar revolves, giving a 360 degree view of Milwaukee which is great and the drinks were not extraordinarily expensive (flavored martinis in the $7 - $8 range, tap beer $4). We did not eat there as the menu is not your standard Milwaukee fare. Looking at the entrees they ranged from $18 - $30. The location is all everyone on this site has already said. If you are traveling in winter and are going to the Arena or Midwest Express Center or Grand Avenue Mall there is no better option. Walk there comfortably in above street walkways. Other than that, unless you get a great deal, I would stay at the Wyndham. At least it has a whirlpool and a large fitness room.

It is so strange that the Hyatt has neither a whirlpool or a pool. The fitness room has plenty of equipment but is small. There is perhaps 4 treadmills, 3 recumbent bikes and 2 or 3 ellipticals plus a rack of free weights and a few other machines. However the TV is arranged so that there are only 5 or so machines that can see it. When I was in there, there were at least 5 of us all huddled in the machines in the corner of the room so we could workout and see the TV. The room is too small and not well laid out. The would do well to merge it with another room and add a whirlpool. Just my .02.

There is a coffee machine in each of the hallways, but it's horrible coffee and no real cream.. powdered cream only (no coffee pots in room but there is a hair dryer). They have breakfast served in the atrium in the am but there is also a George Webb across the street which is a Milwaukee tradition so we had to eat there. However with a trainee waitress and cook, it took us about an hour and a half to get our meal and eat.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The atrium and glass elevators are right out of the 70's but all in good shape.

t pay more than discounted rate

from jatraveler75
Attended a conference at the Midwest Express Center (nice conference center, btw!) I got a discounted conference rate of $112/night and had a good experience, but would've been disappointed if I had to pay regular rate of $149/night. Here are my thoughts:

1. Rooms - basic, clean room; beds were quite comfortable; small bathroom; bad bathroom products; received complimentary newspaper daily

2. Location - good location downtown; a lot of restaurants within walking distance; also Grand Avenue mall is within 2 blocks; it is safe to walk around in the evening; also the hotel is directly connected to the Midwest Express center via a skywalk that is very convenient

3. Staff - Very friendly and helpful

4. Restaurant food - Don't go to the Pilsner Palace unless you absolutely have to. I recommend trying one of the local restaurants that are closeby instead; Polaris, the revolving restaurant/bar is a nice experience with good drinks (a little overpriced though) but it gives you a nice view of Milwaukee

Overall a nice, basic hotel, but not the quality that I would normally expect from a Hyatt.

great location

from boohoomen
Location is great if you are going to a concert at the allstate arena or bradley center.. all within walking distance.

Top Local Tips for Milwaukee

Lots of road construction Update your GPS to ensure you get to the Hyatt. Road construction is scheduled to be complete early 2008.

Rock Bottom is Top Shelf Try lunch at the Rock Bottom Grill, about 2 blocks from the hotel. This restaurant is located on the river with beautiful views from both the inside dining room as well as the outdoor tables. Food is excellent - large burgers and sandwiches, huge salads and many other items.

get a room early if going in late June! I went for a conference in late June, but this was also the time for Summerfest, billed as the "world's largest musical festival." If you're not going to Summerfest, but plan to be in Milwaukee, book your room early!
