Lots of interesting amenities
Those who don't appreciate art might not get much out of a stay here
The Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel bills itself as a hotel created by artists for artists (even adding 1% of your room rate per night to your bill to donate to Sculpture Milwaukee), but the property's unique offerings attract travelers visiting Milwaukee from various walks of life. The hotel sits in Milwaukee's East Town, about 9 miles north of Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport. Art permeates every nook of the Saint Kate, from its multiple galleries to the murals in all guest room closets. In addition to the colorful closets, accommodations showcase local art and come with fun perks, including record players, ukuleles, drawing paper, and art and design books. Even guests who don't care about art will appreciate the flat-screen TV, snacks and beer, and in-room safe. Past travelers recommend booking a room on the same floor as a study, which are small rooms that offer extra snacks and perks. Additional on-site amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi access, valet and self-parking (for a fee), and an impressive gym. As far as cuisine, the Saint Kate Arts Hotel provides guests with five bars and eateries: Giggly features cocktails, wine, Champagne and light bites; the Bar is the lobby lounge that hosts happy hour and slings a variety of drinks, coffee and snacks; Proof Pizza dishes out fast-casual pizza; Aria offers American classics; and The Dark Room serves up steak and seafood.
