How to Get There
The Saint Kate was a completely different experience than I've ever had at a hotel. With an emphasis on the arts and providing a unique experience for those walking through every floor, you won't find another one like this. 12/10!
Saint Kate was one of the coolest and most unique hotels I've ever been to. As someone who appreciates the arts, specifically music and movies, the record player was an awesome touch, and it was really cool that we got to see the theatre. The best part was for my birthday, having the front desk attendant go into the back and grab a violin---that was a first!! Don't settle for just a place to sleep, make the hotel part of your experience and stay at Saint Kate's!
Stayed here over the weekend for a conference. Rooms are done very well. In many hotels, the bathroom is the closet room to the exit. At the Saint Kate, the sitting room greets you when you walk in, then a modern, updated bathroom with advanced fixtures, followed by the bedroom with almost vaulted ceilings. They seemed to be 10 feet or higher!
The Lobby is multi tiered with easy flowing access to the bar, Art gallery, or conference rooms. There is Artwork on display for every taste. I would have walked around every floor if I had the time. I will be back at this glorious Hotel soon, this time, to review the food. The 90-seat theater is one of a kind. On this particular day, a young artist was in the commons area/bar playing the Ukulele; a different and welcoming touch you will most likely only find at the Saint Kate.
Well, that was certainly different. We were staying in Milwaukee for a conference and booked at the Saint Kate. We were greeted upon arrival both at the front door and the desk, offering cocktails and water. I was surprised to hear they had only been open for two days. Everything seemed smooth with no signs of "finishing up" around us.
The room was amazing. Had a sitting area separate from the bedroom, and the bathroom had high end Kohler fixtures. The bed was comfortable and had 5 pillows.
I was on the 10th floor, which had access to The Study. A nice sitting area with TV as well as coffee, drinks, and snacks all day and night. A great touch.
The lobby bar was great and had a good vibe. We learned that the Saint Kate has a nice sized theater, which was certainly different. But made more sense when we learned that they have on staff performers that are there constantly to entertain the guests. On Friday night we go to hear some of these performers in the lobby bar.
I didn't get to try Aria but heard great things from others. Parking was very convenient and right under the hotel. And allowed for unlimited in and out privileges.
Overall a great stay and a great addition to the scene in Milwaukee. Can't wait to get back there again.
The Saint Kate is a wonderful place to stay in Milwaukee! I would highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Milwaukee. The staff is friendly, the beds/rooms are comfortable and it is easy to get to anywhere in the city. I also loved how there was a record player in our room! Won't stay anywhere else when I come to MKE!
