Visitors will have no trouble finding suitable accommodations in Milwaukee—the city offers a full range of properties, from budget lodgings to deluxe hotels. We recommend staying downtown in one of the older hotels: Milwaukee's grande dame, the Pfister Hotel, dates from the 1890s; the Knickerbocker on the Lake was built in 1929; and the Astor is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. A quaint and more budget-conscious choice is the Plaza Hotel. There are also a number of dramatic high-rise properties throughout the downtown area.
Beyond downtown, there's a cluster of hotels on the south side near the airport, including several with large-scale convention facilities. Another group is in Brookfield, convenient for business or shopping in the western suburbs.
Finding a room is unlikely to be a problem at any time of the year except during Summerfest (late June-early July), when you should book early if you want a room downtown.
