Hotels in Milwaukee + Lake Michigan Area

There's a lot of diversity among hotels in Milwaukee, but the prime areas for lodging are the downtown and waterfront areas, which have been revived and restored in recent years. Here are some of our favorite Milwaukee hotels:

  • The Iron Horse Hotel. This chic, motorcycle-themed boutique hotel has rich architectural details—large windows and exposed brick walls—and has become one of the most popular hotels in Milwaukee.
  • Pfister Hotel. This stately, AAA Four-Diamond Award hotel dates back to 1893, and has long been considered one of the best hotels in Milwaukee.
  • Hotel Metro. This chic, Art Deco styled hotel enjoys a great location in the heart of the arts and entertainment district.
  • InterContinental Milwaukee. Panoramic views and an attached trio of theatres are the main draws at this downtown Milwaukee hotel.
  • The Hilton City Center. Close to downtown this family-friendly hotel is home to Paradise Landing, which boasts of being the nation's first urban indoor waterpark—nice for kids or anyone determined to pack their swimsuit, even during the winter.
