Guest Recommendations
"My family and friends really enjoyed our stay. Our main purpose for staying at the hotel was for the indoor water park for the kinds. They had a ball! Unfortunately, the pool was opened so early (7AM) and closed so early (9PM) on a weekend night. It would have been nicer if the pool opened later and closed later as there are too many other things to do in Milwaukee."
Swancey from Evanston, IL US rated Hilton Milwaukee City Center 8 out of 10 on September 06, 2004
