Positive Reviews

Quaint hotel.

Pfister Hotel Milwaukee was built in 1893. The hotel effortlessly combines old world charm with a modern look that offers guests that love classic elegant hotels from an earlier era an ideal stay. A truly ornate hotel.

Excellent rooms.

The rooms here garner top marks from guests due to their innovative design. Some floor actually resemble an art gallery.

Indulgent staff.

Guests have described the hotel's staff as being very friendly and accommodating to a point of being indulgent. Staff members go over and above the call of duty to keep guests smiling and seem genuinely happy to be working at this great hotel.

Negative Reviews

Freezing rooms.

The hotel has a rather outdated heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system that is hard to control. Guests have reported room temperatures dropping precipitously due to this anomaly and all the hotel can do is offer extra blankets.

Moldy bathrooms.

Guests have reported spotting mold growth in the bathrooms which points to less-than-adequate housekeeping.

Cancelled bookings.

Several guests have reported that the hotel cancelled their bookings and moved them to a different hotel due to overbooking which, apparently, is something that happens here quite frequently.
