"Hotel was nice, the room was lacking."
We only had hot water in the room at night, no cold water, had to call to have cold water brought to our room. The air handler fan was always running, and was very loud. the hotel bar and restaurant was great for breakfast, would highly recommend that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great service but the hotel room wreaked of cigarettesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute but old"
This old building is in a great location and has charm, but the room felt old and could use a refresh. My room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke at times (particularly when the bathroom fan was turned on). It was disgusting, and when I mentioned it to the front desk at checkout, the employee did not apologize and seemed disinterested. Will not be […] back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Metro . . . once a fine place to stay"
Hotel Metro was a favorite of mine. Has become a bit tired and needs to refresh decor. Halls smelled and were cold, ice machines did not work, one of the TV's did not work, shower had little water pressure, had to call the front desk to request that room temperature be raised. Definitely not worth the money and will not return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Metro Karl, I apologize about the inconvenience you experienced during your recent stay with us. We have many upcoming and new projects for the hotel as we prepare for our busy, summer season. The ice machine on the fifth floor is temporarily out of service, but there is one on the third floor. I'm glad we were able to tighten the cable cords in the back of the TV so that all of our channels came in. I hope you give us another chance next time you visit Milwaukee; we'd like to make it up to you!
"Not worth the price"
I loved the location of this hotel, but I think that's all I can say I really "loved" about it. The room was nice but the only thing it had going for it was the jacuzzi tub. It was outdated, needed a good paint job, and the plastic on the outside of the tub was peeling off. My husband and I both agreed the next time we stay in Milwaukee we will find […] a room somewhere else for half the price and just skip the jacuzzi. This room was definitely not worth the price.

"Nice adaptive re-use in downtown"
Nicely refurbished hotel in downtown with enormous rooms. The heating system is a bit outdated and creaked and groaned from time to time. Hotel staff were uniformly pleasant, professional and very eager to assist.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect couples night"
Loved the suite, and the surrounding neighborhood, even the bar/lounge downstairs was terrific!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Metro I'm glad you enjoyed your time as a guest of Hotel Metro. We hope to see you again sometime!
"Girls Night Stay"
I really like the vibe of this hotel, the room was fabulous and the bathroom was so amazing. The only complaint i have is that we had to wait 60" to check in and there really was NO explanation as to why. Very frustrating when all you are told is to have a seat. REALLY? we had dinner plans that fortunately we didn't miss but I still am not pleased with […] the hotel staff Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We do our very best to accommodate guests as quickly and efficiently as possible. An early check-in request is very common and our hard working housekeeping staff does an amazing job with servicing the rooms so that you have a clean and fresh suite to stay in.

"Unfoegettable Honeymoon experience"
We decided to stay here for our honeymoon, since we couldn't afford to go somewhere exotic and out of country. Plus the in-room fireplace and whirlpool tub suites were convincing enough to try. Glad we did because we were not disappointed. We were greeted with complementary cava, my car was lovingly washed and the disruptive drunken guests were immediately […] given the boot within two minutes of our call to front desk at 6am. Our night parking charges were waived as an apology and the front desk manager even got us a second stay and nearly half the cost of the first night. As far as hotel Metro goes every detail was spectacular. Best breakfast in years. The pancakes were as big as dinner plates, hot and ready with a friendly knock and greeting by room service. There is a wonderful jazz band that plays on Saturdays and fills the entire lobby floor and restaurant with uplifting and excitingly colorful ambiance and atmosphere. What we enjoyed most was how hard the staff worked to gice us an amazing honeymoon experience in our own backyard. They really went above and beyond to craft so many personal touches that it felt uniquely our own. We were treated as royalty or individuals of great importance. It also makes a huge difference when you're dealing with a staff that's more like an intimate family setup. We oficially want to come back for anniversaries, birthdays and getaways to Hotel Metro...our slice of patadise in our home within home. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel, with great rooms."
Queen suite was beyond expectations. Wow factor when we walked into that room. Room service and food at restaurant was very good and not over priced. We asked for a play and pack for our baby and it was brought up quick. It was also newer and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Metro Jeremy, thank you for posting a review from your recent stay with us in January. We appreciate your comments and feedback. I hope you found our Deluxe Queen Suite to be accommodating and spacious. Please feel free to contact us next time you are looking to stay in downtown Milwaukee!
Hotel stay was pleasant. Given the size of hotel, it was very quiet, which was perfect as we were looking for a weekend getaway from the kids. Hotel restaurant had excellent food except for drink glass that had a lipstick markings.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Metro Thank you for posting a review online from your recent stay with us. I am glad you enjoyed a quiet, relaxing night away from home and chose Hotel Metro! I apologize about the dirty glassware; I have mentioned it to our Executive Chef. I hope next time you're looking to have another weekend away, you will look us up and reserve a suite! Have a wonderful day!
"A lovely stay in a historic boutique hotel"
Hotel Metro is an art deco boutique hotel ideally located for just about anything one would want to do in downtown Milwaukee. The room was huge (500+sq.ft.) and beautifully divided by a curved wooden wall 3/4 the way to the high ceiling, separating the sitting area from the bed room. The bed was comfortable, and the room very clean and quiet. The bathroom […] was chic and had a huge soaking tub as well as a shower. Wonderful spa-type bathrobe and slippers, one TV in the sitting area, another in the bedroom. The location is perfect--an easy walk to the theater complex at Wells and Water--but not on Wells or Wisconsin which are noisy. I had a theater ticket the first night and the next day hit a couple of museums that had shows closing I'd been meaning to see. Excellent eating and night life options on Water St 2 blocks away. I used the hotel's restaurant for breakfast each day, hearty brunch fare. Good food, well-priced for the area. Its bar has a wonderful happy hour weekends. There are the usual free wifi, newspapers, spa and garage. I had a lovely "staycation" in my home town without dealing with parking my car all the places I wanted to go. I will probably do this again next fall. The only quibble: the closet would be small for two people for a longer stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A- hotel amazing. Hot pants bartender not"
Service was wonderful! Jessie Casey Jasmine even the sheets lady was sweet. My ONLY concern was the bartender at the lounge sat night was more concerned with sealing a booty call than helping me with a drink. i did finally get a drink after he was waved over for the tenth time. i dont think he knew i was guest. But either way i was a patron. Be aware […] of the money coming in. Not getting ur jollies. Overall amazing room. Great people. Really kind. Thank you. I will be back.

We went to the Hotel Metro for our 17th wedding anniversary. The staff, room, and the "Just for Two Us" package was outstanding. The hotel was centrally located for an overnight getaway and a meal at the Carnivore Restaurant (also the best meal I/we have ever had). I would stay at the Hotel Metro again and I would recommend it to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had the fireplace and jetted tub room, it was very very nice, the only thing I think they need to add is microwave in room. Other wise my stay was wonderful, thank you Hotels. com and Mostly Hotel Metro, I will tell everyone how beautiful your hotel is!!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Gas fireplace was great. The in room Spa was good until we tried to empty it. The drain would not open. The room furnace was warm enough but the fan was loud and obnoxious.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Downtown location"
I really enjoyed this hotel and was perfect for our girls getaway on new years eve. The two bedroom suite I originally booked had some issues and the hotel staff handle the situation well and upgraded my stay with two joining king suites which were really nice I had great downtown views and the suite was really nice. Since we stayed on new years eve, […] there were many parties and many people outside but the room had sound proof windows so the noise level wasn't a problem. One minor issue I had was the knocking noise from the heaters but other than that the stay was amazing. I would definitely come back again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a very good location for our weekend. The free London taxi was a wonderful surprise and the staff did a great job.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved our stay at Hotel Metro!"
Hotel Metro feels a little older but very well maintained and clean. We stayed in the King Jacuzzi Suite and the tub was awesome, bed was very comfortable. The location is perfect so we would definitely stay there again. It's next door to the Pfister hotel so we did walk next door to go to their penthouse bar which was beautiful. My only critique would […] be that there are not blackout shades so it's super bright in the morning. Not a big enough deal for me to lower the score but if I spent a late night out I may not have been too happy :) Overall great experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a jacuzzi suite, this is a boutique hotel, it is in the business area of downtown a little ways from the historic district and the mall. Everything in that area is closed including restaurants. The room itself was large and the bed is extremely comfortable. There were large cobwebs on the ceiling and the carpet edges were peeling off. The room […] could use more cleaning and I am not a neat freak. Nice toiletries and tub. The hotel itself could use a facelift. Valet parking is the only option and it is an expensive one at $27/ night. Steep for Milwaukee, I better be in Chicago or New York if I'll be paying that much for parking.

"Art deco hotel in downtown"
Excellent hotel with historic charm. We stayed in the spa room, which featured a wonderful soaker tub in the middle of the room. The room was also extremely spacious, even with getting a smaller sized one. The staff was extremely helpful and the attached restaurant was very tasty.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome hotel in Downtown Milwaukee"
This is a great hotel in downtown Milwaukee. They have a wonderful restaurant and bar that serves excellent food and drinks. The rooms are amazing. Very large and spacious with a great work space and bathroom. They also have a spa with a hot tub and dry sauna. The fitness center is a little small. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

My husband and I booked a night for our 3 year anniversary. We had tickets to see the Lion King and decided to make a night of it. We loved our stay. The staff was attentive and went out of their way to make us comfortable. The room was amazing. We had a fire place suite and found it more than adequate. It was beautiful, clean, and comfy. We had dinner […] at Metro before the show and the service and food was excellent as well. We honestly had no complaints. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you for such a great stay.

"Best hotel in Milwaukee"
I have been staying in this hotel since it opened. It is always my first choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Located within walking distance of the Third Ward and Milwaukee Art Museum. Although the size and styling of the room were pleasing, we were disappointed with several key features: 1. The thermostat did not work, and the room was drafty and cold. 2. The TV in the bedroom kept turning off or losing the cable connection unexpectedly. 3. There was a thin, […] cheap, indoor/outdoor style carpeting over a concrete floor. This was hard and uncomfortable, and we expected more comfortable, plush carpeting. We didn't want to take our shoes off. Another disappointment was the quality of the food in the dining room. We had dinner in the dining room, and our Walleye arrived lukewarm, with soggy breading. There was a noticeably sour aroma to the dish, and upon further inspection, we discovered the skin was left on the fish. It was the worst Walleye we had ever tasted. To top off our experience, there was a band playing on the first floor until midnight. Although we were on the 3rd floor, it sounded like the party was right next door to us. Overall, we expected much better quality from a hotel in this price range. We would not stay here again, and would not recommend it to our friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Glorified howard Johnson's - no offense to HoJos!"
Worst hotel stay in a long time. The entire 4th floor smelled like a hospital ward - outside hallways and in the room. Move to third floor was a bit better, but not much. bad lighting, poor room design. Nothing metro about it. And I am not a city snob - I live in Durham, NC. Love MKE but will stay at the Pfister next time. Very helpful staff, it's the […] facility, not the people. Seriously, Howard Johnson's was a better stay, back in the day.

"great for my many relatives who came for wedding"
The staff was friendly and pro-actively helpful with doors, bags, cart, service etc. The front desk was courteous and explained well.

We were also disappointed that the rooftop bar was closed due to a […] private party. Planned on using it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central downtown location"
Very good hotel--excellent staff, well maintained, very clean, very quiet. Four issues: 1) no microwave oven in room 2) stingy on coffee/cream for coffee maker 3) long time for hot water (4 or 5 minutes)--could be room related 4) automated climate control shuts down the AC if no movement in detected in room after several hours --middle of the night […] room could start getting hot--have to get up and move hand in front of the climate controller for AC to start--very irritating Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient location in Downtown Milwaukee"
Great location in downtown Milwaukee, very convenient. The staff was great and super accommodating. Valet is a little pricey, but you get in and out privileges which other hotels in the area don't offer. Plenty of close self parking lots that are much cheaper. Our room was large and mostly clean. The finishes were nowhere near high end. Our bathroom […] was large, but the toilet was in a very awkward position. The floors and vents were not exactly pristine, but the vanity appeared to be clean. Both sets of curtains were stained and broken in our room which made for a very early wakeup call! Street noise was minimal other than several garbage trucks at 6:00 AM. The queen bed was comfortable enough, but definitely needs to be replaced. Our room felt damp no matter what we set the thermostat at. The art deco decor in the lobby and throughout the hotel were very neat. The art deco theme was not continued throughout the rooms. Ours seemed to be a mishmash of styles and decor. We stayed on a Sunday and they offered several dining options within the hotel. The mini bar was crazy expensive, as most usually are. They provide an ice machine, but no pop (soda) machine. I suggest you pick up a 6-pack at the grocery store, as it will cost you the same as one small bottle of Coke! The Keurig coffee machine was easy to use and the Donut House coffee was delicious in the morning. I would stay here again, but there are nicer hotels in Milwaukee for not much more money. Overall, an enjoyable stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A place to rest"
Just wanted a place to rest after driving and sightseeing. Visited the art museum (!!!) the next day. Staff was very friendly and overall facility was nice but I made the mistake of ordering room service and the food was terrible. I ordered ribs and they were tough and dried out. I wish I had ventured into the city for a meal.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel and fabulous location!"
Hotel metro was not only a fun hotel, but it was in a great location if you are looking to have a good time.

"Great Hotel downtown Milwaukee."
We loved the layout of our room. It is quiet in the rooms even though the bar is very busy and there was an event going on in the ball room. Breakfast was nice and relaxing as we were outside and the food was pretty good. Hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating. We did experience some A/C malfunction during both nights and it got a bit warm. […] But besides that it was a very pleasant experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would not stay here again."
The bathroom was not acceptable. Fixtures were old and cumbersome. No one at front desk when I checked out Sunday morning. The bar tender in the bar area gave wrong change from a fifty dollar bill for two drinks. The bar area was run down and in a dire need of a face lift. My room was very dark and there was no one available to help with luggage to […] my room (golf clubs, etc.) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel could use a course in "Hospitality"..."
A very rude employee interrupted a business meeting I was having in the lobby and I tried to find resolution with manager, I ended up getting a template "sorry card" shoved into the crack in the door. I was hoping for a simple kind gesture, maybe a piece "chocolate" to ease the situation and there was little to no effort to solve. The lamp in room did […] not work and actually was missing a light bulb. I got back from dinner and found that my entire floor smelled like pot. Sooooo, I am guessing the business traveler is not on their wish list. Epic fail. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"King suite room"
We reserved a king room with fireplace and instead were placed in a king room with a conference table! How romantic is that?!? Plus, the room was hot; opened the junky window facing the parking structure and smelly and noisy on that end. The front desk made a hot mess of the reservations I made for two total king suites, and a queen. They couldn't figure […] that out and we spent way too much time checking in and the rooms weren't ready. The valets were awesome! The hotel is cool, but maintenance isn't great; things look worn and old. The Zen 7 was never open; due to parties (which were finished 11:59) and then it closed 12 midnight. You market this lovely area, yet it's never open on weekends even? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
