Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Elaine62 Rooms not ready and front desk not very helpful.
We were with a wedding party and booked rooms months ahead, when we arrived to check in the rooms were all on different floors and half were not ready until 2 hours after check in time, I specifically requested that at least 2 rooms be close together. Our room had a big empty space and no chairs to sit in. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience and I will not recommend this hotel. One room even had the wallpaper peeling off the wall!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ShannonW Overall Disappointed
We stayed at the InterCon in Milwaukee for a wedding although we live in the area. We were hoping to see what the experience was and to book a block of rooms for our own wedding however, our expectations were set way too high. When we tried to check in at 4:00, our room was not ready (!) but the staff was friendly and offered to call when the room was available and kindly pointed us to the bar (without any voucher or apology). When our room was finally ready, it was nice except the bathroom was very small and the bathtub was a bit unclean but manageable for the little amount of time we'd be spending there. (And since we live in the area, we wouldn't need to shower there anyway.) The walls were also paper thin, we kept be woken up in the morning by our neighbors who were talking and singing. I'd say overall, we thought we'd have a much better experience but after our stay, we won't be booking a room block for our own wedding. Oh, and I have to say that I found the room block to be a bit expensive at $145 especially given our experience.

The location is awesome and I would love to explore the area more. We were in town for a wedding and would love to come back, but doubt we'd stay here. For the price, I didn't feel like the service was anything special or exceptional. Most times, I felt like staff was expecting a tip, but not serving the customer. Checking out was embarrassing and time consuming. Only to travel back home and call the next day to hear the staff gave us incorrect information at check out. The room was comfortable enough and clean, but could definitely use some upkeep and maintaining.

During my stay, there were a couple of glitches. Someone appeared at my door to take care of them extremely quickly. And they were fixed pronto. Since I was there for a meeting, the meeting room was good, although the temperature was difficult to control. But the food served with the meeting was great, a good selection of things.
I was extrememly pleased and delighted with the entire experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TNTravelerAD Worst Intercontinental ever stayed in
The condition of the hotel is old and run down. In particular the bathroom was terrible. I asked the front desk to address my problems and nothing was done.
The only nice thing I can say is that Lindsey who served in the bar did a great job.
Over the past view weeks I stayed in 5 different Intercontinental and this is the only one I was disappointed with and will not return to.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Edwin54 Worst smoothie and hamburger ever
Stayed last weekend to attend Packer game in Green Bay
On SUnday ordered a smoothie for breakfast at the restaurant.
When I took my first sip I almost had to spit it out. Tasted like sour milk. 3 colleagues of mine had ordered the same and all found the smoothie to be undrinkable.
That evening after a long day at the game, came back to my room and ordered room service. I think it was called the Big Boy Classic (Cheeseburger).
Absolutely hands down the worst burger I have ever had at a hotel. That would be over 38 years worth professional travel.
The patties would have been more useful in a hockey game as pucks!
Loyal IHG member never to stay there again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LiamM Very Mixed Experiece
My Wife and I spent 4 nights here in between 2 stays in Chicago (both at IHG hotels). The Bar and Restaurant were both very good and so were the staff in them but the same couldn't be said about the reception and room servicing staff.
I wasn't acknowledged as Gold Club member on check-in (minor thing but only time this has happened). Got to room and found only 1 set of towels and 1 robe. As we were going straight out, we popped by reception to tell them. Very surprised to be told that's the way we set up our rooms. Failed to win the argument "We booked weeks ago and you knew we were 2 people. Surely you don't expect all couples to have to ask for extra towels and robe?". On our last day we got back to our room about 5pm and found that it hadn't been serviced and when we checked out the next morning we were not even asked if we had enjoyed our stay. Very disappointing.

The stay at your hotel was wonderful. We ate at your restaurant, Kil@wat. The service was excellent and the food was great. Will, our server did a excellent job. Not only that, our service at Clear was excellent. We had the same server before and after our concert (Volcano Choir). Her name was Lindsey. She was amazing. We will come back there again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Enjoyed my stay, but not the room.
Having completed my first stay at the Intercontinental Milwaukee, I felt compelled to share my experience. During my stay I had many positive encounters with staff, particularly the door men who were most helpful. Unfortunately, I had a few negative encounters as well. To begin, after arriving after check in, I was informed my room was not yet available. After a long day of travel, arriving after the posted check in time of 3PM, I was dismayed when after paying my bill, informed that my room would not be available for 15-20 minutes. I can live with 15-20 minutes, so I decided to take a walk and find a cup of coffee. A little over an hour later, I received a call alerting me my room was available. When I returned the same front desk agent welcomed me as if I was a new guest, zero recollection that he apologized for my room being unavailable an hour early, but moreover called me 10 minutes prior and asked for my name and ID again, that was just a bit bizarre. I requested a 6:00am wake up call for Monday morning, needless to say I was not happy when I received a 6:30 wake up call Sunday morning, and no wake up call Monday morning. Upon entering my room I was underwhelmed, but it wasn't the worst hotel room I've ever stayed in, just not worth the hefty price I paid for a Saturday evening. I concluded the reason my room was not available is that the previous guest must have just checked out and it needed to be cleaned. Unfortunately, the housekeeping must have been hurried, as things were still a bit messy. Things like toiler paper not being replaced, the shower still wet from previous guest, odors from food ( I hope), the closet was unorganized and I was not able to fit my bag or hang a suit without it resting on whatever else was jammed in. I point this out because like I mentioned, I've stayed in less extravagant hotels, however housekeeping/room service issues are matters of inattention, I would have gladly waited another hour rather than feeling grossed out walking barefoot on the floors.
On a positive note I ordered the hamburger from CLEAR, and must say it was one of the best burgers I've ever eaten.

Nice public spaces and a good restaurant for breakfast. The seventh floor desperately needs updating in the halls and bathrooms. Staff were professional and helpful. However, we would not stay there again unless the hotel was renovated.

So convenient being attached to the Pabst Theatre which is why we stayed here. Love it that you never have to leave the hotel if you don't want to. Was disappointed that no refrigerator or microwave was in the room. That was the only negative i can think of - very clean and convenient to the Theatre.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CKSWDC Outstanding service
This was our first trip with a toddler, and when I checked in and found there was no suite (as I requested) ready for us, I was prepared to be annoyed. Instead, they had a room ready with a separate seating area, perfect for a crib, and they immediately suggested that they bring a little fridge to the room, in case I had special foods for him. When I came back from a run, I was offered extra towels and bath supplies. When I called room service, I was given suggestions for the best options for my little guy. Even a woman that showed me to the ladies room was helpful and friendly. I can easily say I haven't received service like this at a hotel in a long time - and at a rate that I found to be just bordering on crazy low. I'm not a club member, or a special guest of any kind, and I just felt that the staff - every last member - really went above and beyond. I arrived a nervous mom, and left feeling like I had a lovely relaxing (wedding) weekend with my small child and husband.

When walking into the hotel I was very impressed. It looked updated, stylish, and welcoming. The staff continued to impresses me with their friendness and helpfulness. The room was a nice size and nicely furnished. The beds were very comfortable. Had no problems or issue during my stay.
Only downfall was that there was a reception going on in the bar area by the lobby with a live band and 10 floors up we could still hear the band playing. All and all this was a very nice hotel and I would stay here again!!

I would like to thank the entire staff for just an amazing experience. Catrina & Tim and the front desk were both very helpful and friendly. Lindsey, who only works days in the bar area was extremely helpful with Milwaukee site seeing. I already have told everyone what a great experience staying at your hotel has been. Thank you and hope to see you soon.

I frequent this facility both for business and pleasure. The staff is always accommodating and friendly and eager to promptly solve any issues which arise. They are very friendly and polite. The rooms are nicely appointed, clean and for the most part updated. The location is excellent with access to all that Milwaukee offers within walking distance.

I did not like the treatment by one of front desk attendant. It was very discourteous and humiliating experience, unfortunately one person bring the whole experience down, Room carpet appear dirty and smell of bathroom cleaning solution is strong and irritating, I consider the place 3 star and there are better 3 star than this. My check out attendant was courteous and excellent and so was the bartender in the lounge,

Spent the night with my wife for our anniversary. We went to the Blake Shelton concert at the Bradley Center. The location is great with walking distance to just about everything.
We stayed in one of their Pink Rooms . While I like the idea of the hotel staff supporting breast cancer awareness, the room seemed very stuffy and not very inviting. It would have been nice to be able to crack open the windows to listen to the city sounds.
While it was nice hotels overall with friendly staff, I feel it was too pricey for what we received.

The hotel had a very modern and appealing lobby and check in was quick with very friendly informative staff. The location of the hotel made it easy to access a lot of the attractions. The only issue was the noise of other guests coming in late and chatting into the early hours of the morning no different from most hotels though. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and the room was a good size and the beds comfortable.

I have never stayed at an Intercontinental before and I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. The Intercontinental was the perfect balance between value and experience. We just stayed a few nights for a wedding and I was impressed by the knowledge and helpfulness of the front desk staff. They answered any questions and were quite helpful.
My only complaint was that we had to change our reservation to accommodate an extra person and consequently removed ourselves from the Bride/Groom's reserved block of rooms. Our friends (the ones getting married) let us know that since we weren't in the block that we could pick up our gift bag (since they had extra) at the front desk. When we did go ask the desk, the guy acted like he had no idea what we were talking about. Then we come to find out that the staff found them later and was passing them out to each room in the reserved block (missing us) about 15 minutes before our transportation was supposed to leave. Not a huge gaffe, but just a little bothersome. Overall though, I truly enjoyed my experience.
They also have an awesome, active social media presence, which made it fun to stay at the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wmwright Shorted Priority Club Points
I was not informed that my reservation, made through Kayak, was not going to allow me to earn Priority Club Points. I booked 3 rooms for 3 nights. Had I known this I would have booked directly with the Hotel. This I feel is misleading and not communicated to the customer when booking a room. I feel that the Hotel should make adjustment to my account, otherwise I will not be staying at the Intercontinental on future visits to Milwaukee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anderons82413 great time over all
My husband and I stayed one night in early Sept. We were wrapping up our honeymoon with the Mumford and Sons concert. I called around 1asking if we could check in early. The very nice lady told me how many rooms were already clean and that I shouldnt have an issue checking in early. She did assure me it was first come first serve but she didnt forsee an issue. The great customer service started there but did not end there. Everyone we came in contact with was very nice and knowledgeable. The room was comfortable, very clean, and nicley put together. The small living room was a nice bonus. We were able to sit and eat a late night snack without having to eat in bed; that is always nice. I can't complain about the experience at all. Nice job and kudos to your staff.
