Beautiful hotel and even though it’s a historic in nature the upkeep and service are wonderful. The bathroom was amazing and updated and the room was clean. The entire place looked amazing. Even thoug...h we didn’t swim in the pool we did go into the area while touring the grounds on our own and it appeared to be kept up and being on the 23rd floor, it had an amazing view. Also on that floor was a bar with amazing views as well. The cafe breakfast in the morning was wonderful with more than filling portions. See More

Had an overnight getaway at the Pfister and it was a fantastic experience. Helpful staff and a beautiful hotel. Blu lounge was amazing and my wife and I had a blast sipping drinks while taking in an... impressive view of the city.

I would like to specifically recognize Helga at the Concierge Desk. After check in I inquired about getting a reservation for brunch the next day. I received a call an hour later apologizing that brunch was fully booked. Then an hour after that I received another call from Helga informing me that she had acquired a reservation for us and there was a written confirmation slid under our door. Amazing service.

Another lovely stay at The Pfister. Excellent service to match the surroundings. Didn't have a thing go wrong, but I will say the one visit where there was an issue, staff and management went above a...nd beyond to make things right. What I love about this place is that even though it's a historic gem, it never feels "dusty" or uncomfortable, if you know what I mean. I've stayed at other historic places with rooms that shouldn't even be rooms, but it's done in the name of history. Not the Pfister. Always a class act! See More

Best eggs benedict in town at the Pfister cafe. We make it a point to stop whenever we're in town, even when it's just for a day. They're not on the lunch menu, but if you ask, you can get them until close.

I loved our stay. Everything from check in to room service to the food and parking was all very easy. Such a beautiful place. I only wish I could stay longer or come here more often. The paintings are... an absolute treasure. I could stare at them for hours. And of course the entire hotel is simply breath-taking. See More

My friend and I took advantage of the best friend getaway package. Our room was nice however the constant street sound made for a sleepless night. We were able to check in early which was wonderful!... Part of our package was credits to Blu. However Blu was so crowded we couldn't get a drink. Everyone was very friendly. I do recommend the Sunday brunch. The options were wonderful and the staff members were attentive. See More

We checked in and were informed that we got upgraded because the room reserved for us could not be occupied for that date. Our upgrade was a room we never could have afforded in a million years, a presidents had stayed in. Our children will remember the Pfister for the rest of their lives. See More

My wife and I spent last Friday there as an early Valentine's Day celebration! The room was wonderful and had a great view! The service is always such an exceptional experience too! If you have a few ...extra bucks, the hors d'oeuvres at the Club Lounge were really tasty and offered a nice atmosphere as you looked at the city and lake (and Blu Bar and Lounge almost has an even better atmosphere and view!)! Loved it! And my wife and I both loved the history of the place! Got a night or two and a few bucks, definitely worth a stay! See More

Was at The Pfister Hotel for a wedding and it was beautiful! That said, most of our interactions with staff (with the exception of the food service staff which were amazing) left much to be desired a...s staff gave the impression that people were an imposition. See More

Best Sunday Brunch in SE Wisconsin. Top quality food and service, consistent for the past 35 years that I've gone there. Our "go to" place for special events and quality drinks and dining experiences.

My boyfriend and I reserved a room as part of a night out in downtown Milwaukee. After checking in and being in our room for a total of ten minutes a security guard came to knock on our door and told... us that there was a noise complaint! There is no way that could be possible...we felt as though they discriminated against us due to our significant age difference. At a later date, I was carded at Blu (I'm 39!) which almost ruined our night for I had not moved my ID to my purse for that evening. Luckily I had a picture of my passport on my phone. I have been there multiple times before with friends and have never been carded. I feel as though my boyfriend and I were profiled in both instances. We will stick to Iron Horse, The Kimpton, and the like where we are always welcomed as guests. See More

Loved it the Service was great. The rooms are to die for and the beds are very comfortable. Price wise kind of high but it was worth it.

We went to the Pfister to have our tin type done be the amazing artist Margaret Muza, it was excellent! While waiting for our tin type we decided to go have lunch, lunch was excellent too! It was an e...njoyable afternoon at a beautiful hotel! I would highly recommend both Margaret Muza (artist in residence) and their lunch! Excellent bloody Mary too! See More

It saddens me to write this review because I’ve always loved the Pfister. I took my mother, sister and nieces to the Alice and Wonderland tea party last weekend for $160. It was so disappointing. When... I asked if our table could have water after like a half hour, the server said “we’re getting there, go sit down little girl.” Then when our water did come, I noticed gunk stuck to the inside of the water glass (I have a photo) and unfortunately I didn’t notice until after I had already drank most of it. The service was terrible- the event started at 10 am and we weren’t served anything until past 11 am. I actually ran to the coffee shop to get my nieces cookies because they hadn’t had breakfast. The “activity stations” were one backdrop to take photos in front of and the movie playing in the back of the room on the lowest volume. Lastly and most disappointing was the fact that they didn’t even have any of the characters there. Not even Alice! Just cardboard cutouts. All of these little girls and no Alice. My niece even drew a picture to give to her and nothing. All of the children looked disappointed and restless. My niece kept asking when we could leave. I can’t recommend these events. It wasn’t close to the quality that the Pfister had previously been known for - just unfortunate. See More

We had a wonderful experience at The Pfister. While we only stayed one night everything was perfect! The room was very spacious and very nicely decorated! What a big beautiful hotel in the middle of... everything! Highly suggest this hotel! We will be back! See More

Very disappointed in how we were treated - previous event was supposed to be out of the grand ballroom by 1:30 - room was not flipped until almost 3pm. I would not recommend this venue

Our stay at The Pfister was excellent. Every interaction or request was easy and resolved effectively. We were upgraded to a suite which was very spacious. The room service was quick and delicious.... Our floor stuerad even texted us asking how things were going. Everyone from the vallet, front desk, and housekeeping were amazing. Thanks for a great weekend in Milwaukee! See More
