    The Grand Old Hotel
    This is "The Grand Old Hotel" in downtown Milwaukee so it is pricy. The lobby is beautiful, the restaurants are very good and the Metro Bar has live pianist and strings in the evenings. The rooms are very comfortable but not oversized. The entire downtown is within walking distance and the 3rd Ward with all its restaurants, clubs and theater is south just a couple blocks.

    Pfister Hotel
    We love this hotel.. stayed last year. But our suite although lovely was freezing cold. We turned up the heat to 84 after checking in and left , returning at 11pm. No warmer! Called desk. Maintenance engineer inspected and told us this room has a heating issue because it was in the corner with high ceilings and always like this in really cold weather. Slept with 3 blankets and coat! Told man at check-out. Compensated only with our valet parking. Because they were aware of this problem, we should have been told and let us choose to stay or take another room. We will also write to the Pfister. We feel they should compensate us more than the parking. We would like to keep coming since we do enjoy our stay at this hotel and have been recommending it to others.
