    The Pfister Hotel
    Milwaukee, WI
    0.9 miles to city center
    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. 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. Since it's a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts family, the hotel allows I Prefer members to earn or redeem points for stays here.

    The Edgewater
    Madison, WI
    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, this Preferred Hotels & Resorts property 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 $18 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. Plus, members of the I Prefer program can cash in or rack up points for stays here.
