Terrific design and aesthetic throughout.
Limited menu for dining, more finger food than full meals.

A lot to like. Clean, beautifully restored and decorated, large outdoor bar. The district it's in is historical and formerly industrial, so it is in the process of being restored.

The decor and staff

Love the fact that the hotel is biker and pet friendly!

The hotel has incredible character, and the decor is really awesome. The common spaces and the rooms are really nice, the staff was always polite and helpful.
The location wasn't ideal, it was about a 25 minute walk to the third ward. Parking at the hotel seems a little pricey but there is ample street parking right outside the hotel. The valet and concierge were helpful with this matter.

Overall I really enjoyed this hotel and may visit again but it was a little expensive for the amenities offered and the less than desirable location. I think it is most definitely worth staying at once to see for yourself if you enjoy it. We stayed in the second week of November so I may stay again during a warmer time of year and enjoy it more?

The room was very spacious and the hotel is only about 2 years old.
The hallways were a little hot

Character, style, neat touches and pet friendly. Very nice but relaxed at same time
It's loud at times-can be fun but also annoying when talking on phone in lobby is difficult because of all the noise

Great style, great service, great vibe. Will definitely stay there again

Nicely decorated rooms, very comfortable bed, ventilation was excellent. Nice shower and bath. Had some good meals in the adjoining Smyth restaurant.
Smokey while eating outside. Saturday night was very noisy in the hallway at 2 am. No breakfast until 8 am on weekends. Valet parking only and pretty expensive (30 dollars each night).

Boutique hotel in industrial part of Milwaukee. Right next to train tracks. Home to Harley bikers, people with dogs.

The room was very nice as well as the valet and bellman.
I was not able to check in on time. They granted me a late checkout to make up for it. But I had 4 different people knock on my door in the morning waking me up. Room key deactivated and I went down twice for new ones. Only to have a worker finally open

Nice place. Just horrible customer service. They made my stay worse and did nothing to make up for it besides saying they were sorry repeatedly.
