    I do like the atmosphere and location of this hotel.

    They forgot to freshen up our room. We came back after being out for the day to find the bed not made and no fresh Towels.

    Couldn't check in until 5PM. Dirty room with rippe

    The Club option is nice...quite a refuge from a horrible room.

    Couldn't check in until 5:00 despite the 3:00PM check in time. Tub and sink had hair in them. Bedding was ripped.

    Luxury experience with old world charm.

    Beautiful hotel with tons of character and charm. Good service, friendly staff, comfortable accommodations. Hotel lobby bar and Blu were excellent. Complimentary breakfast in the Cafe offered good food and full choice of anything on menu. Onsite amenities such as spa, shops and additional restaurants offer an extra touch.

    For the price of the rooms, wifi was not free. Given the necessity in today's day and age, not to mention that it is complimentary in many more basic hotels, this was a big let down. Especially when service in the tower is spotty for mobile without Wifi. It felt like a nickeled and dimes amenity. Clientele felt a bit uppity.

    Beautiful Hotel, Great Experience

    We booked a last-minute room at the Pfister and loved our stay from start to finish. The room was beautiful and clean with a great view, service was stellar, and the location could hardly be improved. It doesn't hurt that the hotel is where we stayed after getting engaged! Great experience and we will definitely stay again next time we're in Milwaukee.

    Pretty much perfect.

    You may want to upgrade

    This is a beautiful hotel

    We had the $200 room. No fridge or extra sink. I thought it was a little lacking for a luxury hotel. I guess we should of upgraded.

    Nice relaxing hotel with an old world flair

    Loved the ambience in the lobby. The room we stayed in was clean with a great view is the lake.

    Have to pay for wifi in this current age of free WiFi everywhere.
