When can I find the best deals on Hotels in Downtown Milwaukee?

The two-mile stretch of RiverWalk dominates Downtown Milwaukee. Lining the pretty waterway are some of the best restaurants and craft breweries in the city, as well as eye-catching artwork, and hotels. If you come during the summer, this district hosts a ton of events and festivities that you won't want to miss. You won't be surprised to hear that summer is the busiest time. However, not only can late spring and early fall have glorious weather, but also Downtown Milwaukee hotel deals abound, as they drop their prices to attract customers.

What are the Top Hotels in Downtown Milwaukee?

One of the most iconic hotels in the city is The Pfister Hotel. Fit for royalty, this grandiose property was built in the late 19th century and continues to uphold its impeccable standard of service. At The Iron Horse Hotel you can expect exposed brick walls and metal air flumes in the New York loft-style guestrooms. Geared towards an interesting mix of bikers and business travelers, and housed in a century old warehouse, few hotels have as much character. If you like large rooms, nab one at the Hotel Metro, where suites measure up to a whopping 750 square feet in size.

Where are the best areas for Hotels in Downtown Milwaukee?

The quickly developing East Town is at the core of Downtown Milwaukee. A spate of hotels is housed in this architecturally diverse district, which has everything from Art Deco high rises to Victorian townhouses. The arty Historic Third Ward in the south of downtown has transformed itself into one of the hippest neighborhoods in town, with trendy galleries and the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. Just across the river is Westown, another well-to-do district that features the Riverside Theater, the Milwaukee Public Museum, and the UW–Milwaukee Panther Arena.

What are Hotels like in Downtown Milwaukee?

The hotels in Downtown Milwaukee are as diverse as the people who live there. Some are housed in towering glass and steel structures with modern furnishings, and views down over the city and river from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Others are firmly rooted in the traditions of the past, where white-gloved doormen welcome you into a marble-pillared lobby complete with crystal chandeliers. For a mix of the two try one of the trendy hotels that inhabit the century old brick warehouses once used for heavy industry, where you'll find uber-cool guestrooms and a casual atmosphere.

How much do Hotels typically cost in Downtown Milwaukee?

The hotels in Downtown Milwaukee tend to be considerably cheaper than those found in the bigger cities like Chicago and New York. For one of the hip loft-style rooms or even a luxurious guestroom, you'll never pay more than around $300. For something a little less indulgent, but still with many of the same facilities, you can pick up a 4-star steal for somewhere between $150 and $200. Want to save your cash for the shops?
