Guests can pamper themselves at the Kohler Waters Spa with a wide array of treatments and services. There's also an enormous sports facility that features pools, tennis courts, the aforementioned golf courses and more.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2354 reviewsTripAdvisor (2354)
    Free WiFi

    Located just one block east of the Mississippi River and Riverside Park in La Crosse, Wisconsin, The Charmant Hotel is housed in a former candy factory built at the turn of the 20th century. Recent travelers appreciated the boutique property's historical charm and attention to detail that's featured throughout the hotel, especially in the 67 rooms. Accommodations offer exposed brick walls and leather headboards, along with modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and bathrooms with double vanities and rainfall showerheads. Travelers were also impressed with the number and variety of dining options on-site. The Charmant Hotel features a restaurant with French-inspired cuisine, a coffee bar that transforms into a wine bar at night, a casual lobby lounge, a rooftop terrace that serves wood-fired pizza and a counter selling homemade chocolates. Those looking to stay active can try out the hotel's 24-hour fitness center. Recent guests said everyone from the wait staff to the valets were attentive and professional.

    The Edgewater
    Madison, WI
    #3 in Best Hotels in Wisconsin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 929 reviewsTripAdvisor (929)

    The Edgewater takes its name from its location along the edge of Lake Mendota in Madison, Wisconsin. Aside from its lakefront address, the hotel is also only five blocks northwest of the Wisconsin State Capitol and a half-mile northeast of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Even with its proximity to bustling city attractions, the hotel is a hit with couples looking for a quiet romantic getaway, due in part to its well-equipped digs: Accommodations include minifridges, flat-screen TVs, iHome clock radios and bathrooms with walk-in showers. Recent guests recommended booking a lake-view room for even more serenity. Relaxation extends into the on-site, full-service spa, which houses a salon, a fitness center with a yoga studio, steam rooms and a pool. While guests appreciated these amenities, those who didn't use them lamented the nightly $15 resort fee. Guests were more complimentary of the on-site dining options, which include two Midwestern-inspired eateries, a grab-and-go dining hall and a tavern. Travelers highly recommend the waterfront Boathouse restaurant for seafood and lake views. Most guests reported outstanding service from the hotel staff but cite the location and facilities as prime reasons for return visits.

    The Pfister Hotel
    Milwaukee, WI
    #4 in Best Hotels in Wisconsin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2204 reviewsTripAdvisor (2204)

    First opening its doors in 1893, The Pfister in downtown Milwaukee maintains its Gilded Age glamour, sporting period decor and Victorian artwork. However, that doesn't mean this hotel is stuck in the past. The Pfister's 307 guest rooms, though vintage in appearance, offer contemporary amenities such as LCD flat-panel TVs and wireless internet access (for a fee). Visitors praise the hotel's luxurious facilities, which include the WELL Spa + Salon, as well as the delectable Mason Street Grill and swanky Blu lounge. Many diners highly recommend sitting down for Sunday brunch at The Rouge dining room. Though a few recent guests mentioned they had issues controlling the room temperature, most agreed the staff gives everyone the star treatment while here. Guests also recommend making time to meet The Pfister's Artist-in-Residence; through this residency program, the hotel sponsors up-and-coming artists who, in turn, work right on the premises.

    Kimpton Journeyman Hotel
    Milwaukee, WI
    #5 in Best Hotels in Wisconsin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 377 reviewsTripAdvisor (377)
    Free WiFi

    A newcomer to Milwaukee's Third Ward hospitality scene as of 2016, the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel has quickly become a favorite of business and leisure travelers alike thanks to its free happy hour, friendly staff members and tasty cuisine at the trendy Tre Rivali restaurant. The guest rooms and suites boast custom-made carpets, locally sourced artwork, modern decor, Atelier Bloem toiletries and Frette linens. If you're looking to break a sweat, yoga mats are provided in each room, and there's also a 24-hour fitness center and free bicycle rentals available. For those who would prefer to sit back with a cocktail, the rooftop bar is the perfect place to relax by a fire pit during the colder months or unwind under the trellis when the sun is out. An on-site ballroom and several event spaces can accommodate meetings and weddings. And because this pet-friendly Kimpton property is a member of InterContinental Hotel Group, IHG Rewards Club members can receive free perks (like free internet access; there's a fee for non-members) when staying here.

    The Iron Horse Hotel
    Milwaukee, WI
    #6 in Best Hotels in Wisconsin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2026 reviewsTripAdvisor (2026)
    Free WiFi

    The Iron Horse Hotel is perhaps Milwaukee's trendiest hotel: Guests are welcomed into a space decorated in cow print, exposed pipes and one-of-a-kind artwork. Rooms are spacious and feature exposed brick walls and custom furnishings, as well as oversized rain showers, 42-inch LCD flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. But what really sets The Iron Horse apart from other Milwaukee hotels is its dedication to the biker crowd. Sitting within walking distance of the Harley-Davidson Museum, this property shows its love for two-wheelers with amenities like on-site motorcycle rentals, a washing station and on-call maintenance staff. For non-bikers, The Iron Horse Hotel impresses with its spa services and easy access to art and performance venues like the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Florentine Opera. No matter how you spend your time, recent guests highly recommend taking advantage of the hotel's dining spots and watering holes – Branded, The Library, Smyth and The Yard – which offer palatable sips and bites for morning, noon and night. Visitors are also quick to praise The Iron Horse Hotel's staff with such superlatives as "wonderful" and "delightful," saying the employees only further enhanced their stays. However, some say a stay here is on the more expensive side.

    Free WiFi

    Although the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is situated in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, not Lake Geneva, Switzerland, guests say the locale is quite beautiful. The resort's guest rooms feature private balconies overlooking southern Wisconsin's hilly landscape, not to mention high-tech amenities like multimedia desks and flat-screen TVs. Previous visitors appreciate the Grand Geneva's wealth of on-site activities, including a water park for the kiddos and skiing access for the whole family. If you don't have little ones in tow, fill your days with rounds of golf at The Brute and The Highlands courses, or massage your stress away at the WELL Spa + Salon. Recent guests enjoy the Italian cuisine at Ristoranté Brissago, noting that the outside fire pits are a nice touch. However, some guests mention that dining at the resort's five restaurants can get expensive, while others warn future visitors of the $20 per night resort fee that's tacked on to your bill.

    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Overlooking little Elkhart Lake in eastern Wisconsin — about 60 miles north of Milwaukee — The Osthoff Resort is described by previous guests as a great choice for couples and families looking for an elegant getaway. Guests say the are well appointed and homey thanks to in-room fireplaces, kitchenettes and separate living areas. The rooms also boast private balconies; visitors recommend requesting a room with lake views for a more scenic stay. Most guests agree that the crisp clear waters of Elkhart Lake make for some great swimming in the summer, and those looking to kick back and relax can spend an afternoon lounging in one of the resort's two whirlpools. Beyond that, lessons in French cuisine at L'ecole de la Maison cooking school are a popular draw. But those who prefer not to cook for themselves can enjoy fresh seafood at Lola's on the Lake. Recent guests do say beware that parking can be difficult to find if there's a special event going on at the resort.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 306 reviewsTripAdvisor (306)

    The Milwaukee Marriott Downtown sits between the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan in Milwaukee's East Town neighborhood. This Marriott outpost caters to both business and leisure travelers with its nearly 9,000 square feet of event space and close proximity to the city's iconic Bronz Fonz statue and art museum. According to previous guests, accommodations here are well-appointed and comfortable (albeit small and pricey), with flat-screen TVs, walk-in showers, Bath & Body Works toiletries and pillow-top mattresses. At the hotel's restaurant, Millioke - Meat. Cheese. Beer., local iterations of Wisconsin culinary staples (think: sausages and cheeses) are on the menu. There is also an on-site Starbucks, an indoor pool and a small gym with free weights and cardiovascular equipment. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is provided in public areas, but expect to pay $9.95 per day for an in-room connection. And keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can accrue and redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    The Westin Milwaukee
    Milwaukee, WI
    #11 in Best Hotels in Wisconsin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 52 reviewsTripAdvisor (52)

    This Westin outpost, the first Westin-branded hotel in Wisconsin, opened in June 2017. Since its debut, the Milwaukee property has garnered warm reviews from guests for its friendly, knowledgeable staff and its clean, modern interior. The hotel's 220 guest rooms and suites are outfitted with large picture windows (some featuring views of Lake Michigan), Westin-branded beds and toiletries, iHome radios and in-room Starbucks coffee and Tazo tea. Outside their digs, travelers will find a business center, a fitness center and Stella Van Buren, an Italian-American steakhouse. For more dining and fitness options, visitors can explore the hotel's neighborhood, the Historic Third Ward. Thanks to a partnership with a neighborhood yoga studio, guests who opt for the Move Well Milwaukee package can enjoy a 60-minute session at Yama Yoga – a studio in the Third Ward. The Westin Milwaukee's location also comes in handy for sightseers – several of the city's top attractions, including the Milwaukee Art Museum, are within walking distance of the hotel, as is the lakefront. What's more, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn or redeem points for choosing to stay here.

    Free WiFi

    If you're in town to catch a Green Bay Packers football game, you won't find a hotel much closer to the action than Lodge Kohler. Located 100 yards from Lambeau Field, this property offers guests their choice of 144 rooms, which come with custom-designed Kohler bathrooms. Football enthusiasts traveling in groups may especially like the Terrace Suites, which include ground-floor patios with fire pits, gas grills, lounges and dining areas – perfect for pregame parties. The lodge also offers a spa, a gym and a panoramic rooftop bar. While some guests enjoyed the spa services, others noted that appointments need to be scheduled weeks before arrival. When it's time to dine, take a seat at Taverne in the Sky on the fifth floor for modern rotisserie cuisine (lunch and dinner), or visit the Leaps & Bounds Café for a casual breakfast or lunch indoors or on the outdoor terrace. Recent guests praised everything the hotel had to offer, from the nitro cold brew downstairs to the ultra-luxurious in-room showers to the staff's exceptional service.

    The Hilton Milwaukee City Center has a knack for making a great first impression. A member of the Historic Hotels of America, this Hilton outpost impresses guests with its stunning, classic interiors. Marble columns, cascading crystal chandeliers and art deco artwork have remained well-maintained since the hotel first opened its doors in the late 1920s. Accommodations contrast, offering up more subdued furnishings like Hilton Serenity Beds, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers. Guests also have the option of perusing the four on-site dining options, which travelers applaud for the overall excellent quality of food. The Milwaukee Chophouse is a traditional steakhouse, Miller Time Pub & Grill is a great place to catch a game, or happy hour, Edison's Brew serves Starbucks coffee and the Monarch Lounge offers up Mediterranean bites, American classics and live jazz in the evening. You can find this property in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, adjacent to The Shops of Grand Avenue and the Wisconsin Center, the latter of which is connected directly via bridge. And because this hotel is a member of the Hilton family, this property accepts and rewards points to Hilton Honors loyalty club members.
