I'm currently writing this in the middle of our stay and am highly considering leaving early during my reservation as I'm not sure I can do another night here. We actually stayed here two years ago and had the best time and were excited to try it again. Upon arrival to our room yesterday, the sheets on the bed had holes in them and dirt; makes you really wonder how clean this place is. The red velvet chair in the corner has white drops of who knows what all over it and smells. All of the furniture is so dinged up that it looks like a Super 8. The bed itself however was pretty comfortable and the bathroom is nice. The noise at the hotel is unbearable, at least on our floor. We get that there's a rooftop bar and it was a Friday night but the halls were filled with drunk people literally falling over in the elevators and halls. There were girls running through the halls drunkenly screaming until FOUR AM. We can hear ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING in the room next door; the neighbor was scream crying until THREE AM. We could hear absolutely every "R-rated" activity going on at all hours as well. You can hear every single door close in the place. I've never stayed in a louder place. Maybe it's the fact that I just finished three 14 hour night shifts in a hospital and had been up for 24 hours already that caused the hotel to be so difficult to sleep in. Youd think it would be the opposite and shows how bad it is. The rooftop bar had great drinks but it took us, paying customers of the hotel, over an hour for a table and then we were seated directly next to and facing the bathroom. So we spent our night as the only table watching people come in and out of the bathroom. A drunk older man fell on me at one point which was spectacular. The one positive is that staff were excellent, polite, nice, and helpful. The hotel has turned very Covid friendly and it's nice to see everyone taking it seriously. I am upset I spent $900 for TWO nights at this place.

This hotel is fine. Nothing special. We booked a "spa" room so I could take a bath and relax. The bath is a huge failure. There are no salts, scrubs, special oils, bathrobes, slippers, or anywhere to put your items (I understand covid-18). My wine sat on the floor, I had to stand to get it, the items provided by the hotel you had to stand to reach. The tub doesn't drain properly. I stood half of my bath. The entire experience was an annoyance. We only get a day away from our kids to relax and this hotel only stressed me out. If you want a relaxing experience I recommend somewhere else or at least a different room. don't waste your money on the fake "spa experience"

Hello! Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to provide valuable feedback!! I am sincerely sorry for the lack of a great experience you had regarding the Spa room. Indeed our property does carry complimentary bath bombs, bath salts, bathrobes, slippers, and would be able to have a stand placed inside of the shower and tub space. We have all of these items besides a stand listed in our welcome letter given upon arrival. I apologize if for some reason this was not given out or any of these items declined to you as it is our standard to make them available. Please don't hesitate in reaching out to me personally regarding this stay as I would love to hear more regarding it and correct any issues so future stays are unaffected. My email address is Stefan.galovic@journeymanhotel.com or you may reach me by phone at 414-291-3970. I hope we can touch base soon! Thank you so much again for staying with us!! All the best!!

Hotel- Kimpton Journeyman (Milwaukee, WI) Date- November 2020 (2 nights) Overall: 5/5. Excellent. This is a fantastic hotel, a tribute to the brand. I left the property wanting to stay longer, a clear sign of what a gem this hotel is. I will definitely be back. Rewards Club Recognition- 5/5. Excellent. Upon check-in, we were verbally thanked for our loyalty, and our room was upgraded. We were offered either welcome amenity points or a $10 Raid-the-Bar credit. A card welcoming us to the property was present in our room when we arrived, as were two small bottles of wine, some pecans, and some M&Ms. Staff- 5/5. Excellent. What a staff! Luis at the reception was kind and accommodating. He explained the services offered by the hotel and how the pandemic affected some of the usual offerings, such as the social hour and coffee service. Matthew, the bellman, was stellar. Conversational and eager to help, he and Luis provided a wonderful introduction to the property. Bernard proved quite helpful when it came to finding things to do and places to dine during our short stay. Marco, in Tre Rivali, the restaurant, was a very attentive server. Tyler at the Outsider rooftop bar was equally impressive. Kate and Marcel did a wonderful job making us feel like truly valued guests. Kudos to the hotel and restaurant team! Property Appearance & Maintenance- 5/5. Excellent. Exterior- 5/5. The entrance is clean, and the hotel is well branded. The hotel was built only a few years ago, and it is clearly well maintained. Interior-5/5. The lobby was clean and stylish, and the hallway carpet, walls, & baseboards were all in great shape. I couldn’t help but notice the greeting with our pet’s name on the dog shaped chalkboard in the lobby. I also found myself intrigued by the chandelier in the lobby, which I later learned had one light per room in the hotel: there’s nothing like a fixture with a story behind it. Accommodations- 5/5. Excellent. We were assigned a “King Spa” room, and we were very pleased. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom had a nice soaking tub in addition to the shower. There was adequate bathroom counter space. The dog statue was a nice touch. The coffee maker we requested was in the room when we arrived. Housekeeping- 5/5. Excellent. Our room was super clean. The carpets were vacuumed, and towels and toiletries, such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, toilet paper, facial tissues, etc., were provided in a supply adequate for the length of our stay. Pool/Gym- The fitness center is open on a first come, first serve basis (social distancing required). Breakfast/Meal Options- 5/5. The restaurant, Tre Rivali, was open for dine in and carry out, and we had a wonderful experience. My shrimp dish was tasty, and my spouse devoured his carbonara dish. While the minibars are emptied during the pandemic, a popup bodega is available at the front desk. Laundry- not evaluated. Computer/Printer/WiFi- 5/5. WiFi was strong throughout the hotel and streaming was smooth. Other- This hotel does a fantastic job keeping the brand promise while still complying with COVID-19 requirements. The employees always wore masks, and sanitizing stations were present throughout the hotel. Staff members maintained appropriate physical distancing from guests and one another.

Love the hotel. Great location and great rooms - very clean and tidy. Our room had amazing views of Milwaukee as well, which was a plus. There is also a nice restaurant on the ground floor with some tables outside. Amazing hip vibe in the lobby.

before you book with this hotel, please be aware that they are giving no forgiveness for their reservations due to covid-19. I called to cancel a reservation 2 weeks before our stay and they would not give a refund or even as much as a voucher :( I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. There are several other better hotels in Milwaukee with outstanding customer service!

Greetings Millie2745, I am absolutely shocked by your statement that the Kimpton Journeyman is not allowing for guests to cancel reservations due to Covid 19 especially two weeks in advance as that is not certainly not accurate. My apologies that was communicated to you. I am not certain if you made your reservation through a third party but I happy to help you with getting this resolved. Please reach out to me directly so I can better assist @ patrick.gaskin@kimptonhotels.com. Sincerely, Patrick General Manager
