Overview

Guests say service is excellent
Extra fee for Wi-Fi
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.
