I enjoy the atomsphere at this restaurant. The servers are excellent and the food is always fast. The menu is very unique and I think it has a little something for everyone! The macaroni and cheese with grilled chicken is to die for as well as the Salmon entree! If you're looking for a great appetizer, the beer buddies are pretty taste too!

I had to stop off in Milwaukee at 2AM for a flight that lasted too long and a thunderstorn that would not let up... I checked in here at 2AM expecting to get some sleep and back into the air the next day.  Well half of that statement is true:  I did get back into the air the next day.

I checked in at 2AM and they had rooms available.  What did I expect? It is Milwaukee.  It was a very small location, and the lobby is the size of my living room.  I checked in fell asleep the moment my head hit the pillow.  

The good - clean, nonsmoking rooms with comfy beds. As you would expect from a Hilton room.  Staff was courteous, but did not really offer any information above and beyond what was asked.  They did have complementary USA today newspaper at your door.  If you chose to decline the paper, you get $0.75 credited to your room.

The bad - First of all - well overpriced for Milwaukee.  second - it is a garden inn - not a Hilton Hotel. No complementary breakfast. I asked at checkin if they had breakfast (included with the room) he said yes, breakfast is served between 6 and 9am.  I woke up the next morning and was told it cost $11.
The biggest reason for the 2 star was the room phone. I was not able to sleep all night since the phone went off all night at 3am and 5am. Just the perfect interval to ruin all sleep.  I don't know if it were a malfunctioning speaker button, but it was loud and constant dial tone.  I unplugged the phone and enjoyed the final two hours of my sleep before having to wake up at 7.
Their business center does offer free printing, but with a funky system where you have to email them the pages in attachment, and then the system responds with a print code where you have to punch in to get your papers.  Mine took four tries to get the print the attachment.  The first three only printed the email itself... I don't know why it has to be so difficult.

Check out was a breeze and I was off without ever looking back. I hope I never have to come back.

I stayed here this past weekend for a bachelorette weekend with friends. We had a suite, which was two nicely sized rooms, two full bathrooms, two full or queen beds, and one king sized bed.

This place was awesome! I'm not sure what I liked more - that it is brand-spanking new, super quiet, or that they let us in at 3am after our key cards weren't working and wouldn't even let us in the hotel itself!

The prices seemed reasonable as well, especially compared to other cities, and for the quality, I really don't think you can beat it.

As others stated, it is dead quiet here, even with the airport next door.

If I ever had another reason to stay at a hotel in Milwaukee (as I am from Milwaukee and have free accommodations at Casa De MOM), I would definitely stay here over other hotels in the area.

This is a wonderful property. Since it's new, everything about it is fabulous. I enjoyed the very modern, aesthetically pleasing decor. I guess they've been open for several months and all systems are running smoothly.

This property is very near Billy Mitchell Field but that had no effect on the noise level inside the building. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant offered a lovely breakfast buffet and made-to-order breakfast food too.

The rooms are well appointed and the beds are super comfy. FREE internet, at this writing, in the guest rooms. Nice indoor pool and workout room; treadmills with TV! Rooms have small refrigerators, laundry available on the ground floor, business office available to guests. Free shuttle to the airport or train station.

I highly recommend this property and would stay here again [and have!]. Call the property direct for the best rates!

It is a shame that a relatively new Hilton Garden Inn with a nice-looking lobby would end up being disappointing.

While is guest room is clean and average size, there were several shortcomings at this property.

1.  The front desk staff did not look like they enjoyed their job.  When I told them that the fitness center was out of towels and water, the front desk barely flinched.  I don't think she cared.  She did not offer an apology or offer to provide me bottled water.

2.  The business center had a broken printer and it was not possible for me to print my boarding pass.

3.  The small bathroom feels even more cramped when the shower door swings open.

Milwaukee is a charming town with many other hotel choices.  You will be able to find better properties else where.

Do not have any qualms or reservations about staying at the Hilton Garden Inn at the Milwaukee Airport. We were impressed almost as soon as we walked in the door. A clean, welcoming and comfortable lobby, friendly and personable desk staff, spotless rooms, fresh linen, carpeting that I was not afraid to walk on, a bathroom with no cracking tile or mold (very clean), comfortable beds and seating. I loved the pool area as it, too, was fresh and clean with good drainage on the floor. My only gripe was that the water could stand to be a couple of degrees warmer, but I was happy for the hours, 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. I've recently been in hotels where the pools open at 9 and 10 a.m. There is no complementary breakfast but we went for the Sunday buffet and were totally pleased with the choice of items and the preperation of the hot food items. We had thought about booking downtown but saved a good amount of money staying near the airport. It was a quick 10-15 minute ride back into the city  I
did not experience one moment of creep factor.  I will defintely be back, no question.  My only suggestion is to ask to not be put in room 230. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the accomodations, it's just that your only view
is that of the power boxes/electrical panels.

I'm picky and let little things bug me. Not this time. When we left I mentiond to the desk person that this was the best hotel experience I've had in quite some time. Honest.

This is a nice clean hotel.
Being next to the airport is was amazingly quiet.

The bed was perfect, room was perfect, the staff was perfect. The problem was that the equipment was faulty. The television had not been set up and it was almost impossible to find out what programs and channels were on it. The clock was set to the wrong time and I was told by the front desk that it could not be reset by me or them to the correct time. That they would have to swap out another clock in a different room. What kind of corporate office nonsense is that? The food was just ok.

Great location just a few miles from MKE.   Nice staff (friendly and attentive), nice decor, nicely kept.    A solid choice in the MKE area.

Hilton Diamond member here.  This is the cream of the crop of HGI properties.  Frequent Hiltoners will recognize the layout but the furnishings and decorations were way above what you're used to... down to the outdoor firepit right off the restaurant.  Staff very friendly and helpful.  Nice fitness center with 3 treadmills, 2 ellipticals, a recumbent bike and a variety of weights.   Location very convenient to MKE airport.  I had a room facing the airport and heard very little airport noise.  Definitely will stay here again.

I can't say enough about the excellent service and caring that manager Sara and the entire staff showed to me and my family while staying at the MKE HGI (3 rooms) for my fathers funeral. They absolutely went out of the way to make a difficult time for my family a bit easier. They are genuinely good people who care about their customers. I highly recommend this hotel for not only comfortable accommodations, but also for excellent service.

Close to the airport and the hotel shuttle is very convenient. I did not find that there was any noise from the airport that bothered me.
The hotel is a new hotel so everything is modern, up to date and lean. The bathrooms were a bit small but very clean. As with all Hilton Garden Inns the towels were a good thickness.
The big downfall - is the cookies they bake every evening. While they are VERY good I eat way too many cookies when  I stay at Hilton Garden Inns!
Someone complained earlier that breakfast is not included, as a Hilton Honors member I did have the option of getting points or breakfast.
Fitness center was clean, had plenty of water and towels.
If I am back in Milwaukee again I would definitely consider staying here again.

Great choice. Sorry I haven't stayed here before. Great service starting with the hotel shuttle, and front desk. Driver even suggested a bar right across the street. Mentioned it is one of the oldest spots in town with a vast beer selection.

I would rate this property in the top five of all HGI I've visited over 10-15 years.

You've heard the saying in reference to budget motels "Well, it ain't the Hilton."

Well, this is the Hilton.  I'm happy to give this hotel 5 stars for being, as the rating indicates, "As good as it gets!"

First, this hotel is less than 5 minutes from the MKE airport terminal.  Second, the prices are very reasonable for what you get.  Third, the breakfasts are mighty tasty.  

We had a junior suite, which was fairly large.  There was plenty of space for our young daughter to cash out for the night while her mother and I had a drink from the bar and watched a movie without disturbing her.  The room was very clean, well decorated, and had many amenities.  

In the morning we took advantage of the breakfast that was included in our stay.  There were lots of good, hot options and everything turned out great.  It's far above the quality you get at other continental breakfasts.  

Finally, do take advantage of the free airport shuttle.  We stayed here the night before flying out on our vacation and left our car here for the duration of our trip.  Being February in Milwaukee, it snowed.  A lot.  What a pleasant surprise to find that part of the staff's job during your car's stay is to wipe it off and clear the snow.  So, when you return your car is ready to accept bags and drive off without having to scrape the snow and ice off the windshield.  The shuttle was quick, and was there for us promptly when we returned the following week.

This hotel is well worth the money and was a great first night of our vacation.  We'll definitely be back.

I went to the hotel in a snowstorm as my flight was the next am At 6:25. I would have needed to leave my house at 3am to get to the airport in all the snow. After I had a great dinner, I unpacked for the night & found I had left all my makeup at home. My trip was the most important one of my life!!!! I was meeting my son who I gave up for adoption who just had a baby!!!! The shuttle driver (Bob)  took me to target so my husband didn't have to drive 1 1/2 hrs to bring my makeup!!!  There was a waitress who said if the shuttle couldn't take me she would. My room was great. Food was great but staff went above & beyond! I will always park here ($25 for up to 2 wks) just to hug the staff who helped me feel like me for the event of my life . Thanks agin & I do recommend this hotel to all

Really nice hotel with a great staff. Every staff member I talked to was pleasant and helpful, and the interaction didn't seem fake or forced - like they genuinely enjoyed helping people. The Starbucks coffee and Tazo tea in the lobby was a nice touch, and the cookies were delicious.

I can't speak to the quality of the bar or restaurant as I didn't patronize either but noticed the bar had local craft breweries (Lakefront, New Glarus, etc.) on tap, which is alright in my book.

We took a spur of the moment ride to the MIlwaukee area and landed at the Hilton Garden Inn, I am so happy we did.  From the minute we checked in, Amanda at the front desk greeted us and put us in a room on the first floor by the pool which is what we requested.  The room was roomy and clean, plenty of pillows on the bed and towels in the bathroom.  I personally was excited for the adjustable bed, but found out it was not what I expected.  That was probably the  only thing I was disappointed with in the hotel.  We stopped at the bar for a couple cocktails and had an enjoyable conversation with Aaron .  Maybe his great personality is what made us have a couple extra drinks than we needed but we had fun.  We took advantage of the pool and hot tub which was super clean.  There were tons of towels the water was a perfect temperature.

I would definitely stay here again and I have already recommended it to another couple that is talking about taking a mini get away soon!

For the price a very good deal. By the airport - 20 minutes to Marquette - not much around the hotel but for the price a very nice stay!!!

Everything about the place is bright and shiny. Free coffee but not free breakfast - oh well. Paid $11 for a made to order breakfast - excellent coffee - and lovely servers.

Save yourself some moolah and stay here when visiting you college peeps.  That is - as long as you have a car!

From check-in all the way through check out, this hotel was a great experience.
We grabbed a deal on Priceline so the value was out of sight!
The room was easily worth double what we paid for.

The only downside, we ate dinner at the on site restaurant and it was S-L-O-W!!!!! It was tasty and our steak was done perfect but holy smokes they did everything slow. Not easy to navigate with two little kids.

The next time we need to stay in MKE we will for sure be staying here!
