How to Get There
Hotel Metro is a serviceable “boutique” Hotel centrally located in the Milwaukee CBD. It is on the Historic Register for its Art Deco styling (which you are reminded of when paying the extra $5 historic preservation fee at checkout). Rooms are dated, but clean and spacious, and the desk staff is Midwest friendly. WiFi is free, but no morning coffee in the lobby is a bummer. They recently partnered with a large hotel group and plan to renovate/upgrade in the Spring, so things should be looking up soon. Stay tuned.
My room had a non functioning thermostat. They didn't tell me this at the check in. I called and they said they'll send someone to fix it, even confirming with me if it was ok to come when I was out, I said yes. Arrived back at 11pm after a long day. No one fixed it. Room was so hot. Called, Nicole was pretty much like "we tried, sorry, no one else complains about it". They offered a fan, couldn't find the key to the closet it was in, came 25 minutes later. Offered breakfast voucher which was useless since it's covered by my conference.
Poor situation all around. They owe it to tell customers thermostat isn't working.
From start to finish my and my husband's experience at Hotel Metro was outstanding. We got a lovely corner room with great views. The room was spacious and everything was comfortable and inviting. We told the hotel we were celebrating our marriage, and when we returned to our hotel after the festivities there was a bottle of bubbly and a tray of chocolate covered strawberries. What a treat! All the staff was incredibly kind and helpful, even the valet driver. The hotel is definitely charming and quirky. We especially loved the restaurant attached to the hotel, Pastiche. Great breakfast in the morning after our wedding.
I especially loved that the location was so central to the city. A few minute walk to the 3rd Ward, Water Street and Cathedral Square. Right in the heart of Milwaukee. We could access the Hop as well which was very useful.
Overall a great experience!!
The Hotel Metro was one of the early 'quirky' boutique hotels. The room decor is off-beat but with great amenities. My room was very generous in size and included a huge bath tub for soaking. I was given a $20 certificate toward food at the restaurant. They served small plates - I had the bake brie and empanadas with a great glass of wine. It is starting to look its age but that does not take away from the rooms or the friendly service. I could even open a window -- and they provide a compfy robe. It is located downtown, very close to the new free tram, which goes to the train station. I feel comfortable recommending this hotel.
We stayed at the Metro because where we usually stay was full. Now we will stay at the Metro. We had one of the rooms with the curved wall separating the room into two, really. So one of us could watch TV when the other didn't want to. It just felt so big. The staff at this hotel was really nice. I especially enjoyed Nicole, who worked at the front desk and sorted out a few things for me. It was such a nice visit to this hotel. They are renovating as I write this--didn't hear or see it but there were signs. And I enjoyed one of the "old" rooms. Can't wait to see the new ones! Also, the restaurant on the first floor is very good. We didn't eat there this trip, but we have eaten there a number of times. Give Hotel Metro a try! You will be glad you did.
