Just lovely, good servicefrom HerselfNYC
Bathroom in my king room was very small, but since I live in a tiny NYC apartment, I'm used to that. Everything was attractive and nice.
I was most impressed with the friendly responsive service -- at the reception desk, in the restaurant at breakfast -- and afterwards when I asked the man at the lobby coffee bar if there was a supermarket nearby -- I wanted to buy some low-carb food to take to the airport for what promised to be a long day of traveling. He said there was nothing nearby, but when I explained my dilemma, he immediately called down to the kitchen, where they swiftly put up a beautifully packaged go-bag with roast beef and cheddar and a bottle of water -- and charged me less than $5 for it. The lovely breakfast in the restaurant was similarly free of the kind of price-gouging on food you expect in a hotel -- the 2-eggs-bacon-toast-potatoes-coffee breakfast came in at under $10. (Compare to the Hilton in Chicago where they were charging over $20 for the same.)
I'm very impressed and pleased with my stay here -- I only wish I was staying more than 1 night!
Most comfortable hotel bed ever!from korto
Fab but also a few problemsfrom justascreenname
However there were also a few problems. I got an "executive room" with an awkward layout featuring a seperate and fairly dark "TV area"; a pretty small bathroom and a smallish bedroom.
The fairly loud aircon in the TV area cannot be turned off but fortunately the noise is ok when in the bedroom. But the bedroom (and apparently the whole hotel) has a different low frequency noise that I found very annoying!
Room service was definitely below standard on occasions. During the about-a-week stay my bed was'nt made a couple of times, used mugs not replaced, shampoo not refilled, etc.
The barman was an interesting experience. Some of the lights were already turned off around 11ish on a weekday but there were still people drinking at the bar so I thought the bar would be closing very soon. When I approached the bar the barman pretty much ignored me. Closed? No, a few minutes later he was still able to sell bottled beer to his mates.
Beautiful Hotellfrom BIG_SOS
Great Hotel Great Cityfrom caper6767
I thought the whole hotel was amazing: the rooms were large and well-appointed and the beds were excellent--so many pillows too!
The staff at the desk, restaurant, bar, and even the gift shop, were always friendly and accommodating in meeting any needs I had.
Thanks Thomas for being so friendly and helpful!!!
If ever I were in Milwaukee again, I would definitely stay at the Intercontinental.
Poor service, fire alarms in the middle of the night, and poor managementfrom KayaW
Excellent 1 year anniverasry in our same Wedding night Suite!from dtherese83
We decided to rent to same suite for our anniversary night. We booked a corner suite, it was 299 for the night, WORTH EVERY PENNY...go for it! I included some photos. LOVED the shower...check in was great, however it sounded like the manager was dealing with someone elses complaint...not ours! We brought up the top tier of our cake to eat...for tradition's sake...and they immediately brought up plates, napkins, and flatware within 5 minutes of our arrival. There was a bottle of champaign chilled and waiting for us...and an 80 dollar credit to kilowat, which we unfortunately didnt use because we had reservations elsewhere and were too hung over to have it for breakfast. There were tons of snacks and drinks (for purchase of course) in the minibar...we didnt spend much, minus the $4 voss water to quench my hungover thirst. they even had an air purifier that had a not on it that if we wanted to take it with us it was 100$...I actually considered it.
Overall---it was the perfect night...I may actually plan on doing that every year if we are in Milwaukee for our anniversary. I cant stress how comfortable the bed was and how AWESOME the rainfall shower is. This hotel makes for an EXCELLENT romantic getaway.

Top Local Tips for Milwaukee
Construction Be advised that Interstate 43 is under construction and major delays do occur.
Taxi ring If you don't have transportation and don't know your way around, grab a cab in front of the hotel. If you like your driver, get their card. We were fortunate to get a great cab driver (most in this area seemed to have been taxi drivers for a number of years and really know the area). Once we were stuck waiting for a shuttle for a special event and it was such a long wait, we called Charlie and he was there within 5 minutes. He made our trip easy! And from past experience, he really knew his way around because rides we've taken before by cab were less money with him because he knew the area so well.
MIller Park Take the #90 bus to the Park, much quicker and easier than driving.
