Since it opened, this historic Grand Dame—which includes the 1893 building and a modern tower—in downtown Milwaukee has hosted every U.S. president since McKinley. Gilded Age glamour can still be seen in the lobby’s gold-leaf detailing and celestial ceiling mural, but the Pfister’s 225 guest rooms and 82 suites in the tower have recently been revamped with quilted-leather headboards, Grohe fixtures, and walk-in marble showers. The 23rd-floor indoor pool has views of Lake Michigan, and guests can kick back with a cocktail at Blu martini bar. For lunch and dinner, slip into the red horseshoe booths at Mason Street Grill for classic American fare.

Room to Book:

Guests on the 20th and 21st tower Club Floors have exclusive access to the Pfister’s new Club Lounge, with an attendant to manage requests during their stay.

Insider Tip:

Upon request, the hotel’s artist-in-residence will give tours of his or her studio, gallery, and the Pfister’s extensive Victorian art collection.
