Older hotel but has lots of charm. Room was dated but comfortable. Sky deck very nice. Clean. Pool, locker room and exercise room very nice. If Lou is there your in luck very nice guy. Knows all about hotel. Older guy at desk kind of snooty.

With bad weather coming in I took a suggestion to stay at the MAC. It's not expensive, but it didn't have functional heat (my room never got over 58 degrees), the bathroom was beyond outdated, and I couldn't wait to leave. I slept under my coat, a couple of sweaters, and the extra blankets in the closet. Service at the...

I rolled into Milwaulkee on my motorcycle to see the Harley-Davidson museum and needed to find a hotel...cheap! I booked the MAC online expecting a local YMCA. I rode up to the front doors and thought it was a mistake. I came off the road covered in road grime and smashed bugs. The desk clerk was very courteous and checked...

I really enjoyed this old hotel! And has a lot of character that is very unique to the newer flashy properties. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I had a heat issue in my room when I checked in and they were very kind to call Maintenance and offer to move me. The location is convenient the parking is...

Well priced old downtown hotel. Athletic facilities a plus. Plumbing and HVAC very old. Did not sleep well because room was too warm and cooling did not work. Restaurant/bar was fine for my purposes but was not real fancy.

I wasn't really sure what I was getting when I booked this hotel. There were a lot of mixed reviews, but the excellent location made me give it a shot. The room wasn't special. It felt like I was sleeping at my grandmother's house, which isn't a bad thing, it's just strange for a hotel. But I slept fine, it...

The worst part of the stay was that the shower was unusable- the water was literally burning hot and would not cool. The faucets, including that for the sink, was also burning hot and could only be touched with a towel. The hallways smelled of mold. We were told to pay for parking only to then find out the parking...

Nice vintage hotel and health club. As a guest on the three floors available as hotel room you have acces to the gym, pool, etc. Vintage building in great shape. Large rooms, nicely appointed. Generally very clubby. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Look forward to return visit. Would skip the bar, looks like woody old club but very loud.

Looking for a great place with vintage charm, modern amenities, at a reasonable cost, look no further. The Milwaukee Athletic Club is a fine example of re-purposed structures; a former private club preserving its original architecture and decor, offering both a 5 star hotel and a Milwaukee history experience.

First off, and to be remembered, this hotel "encourages" a dress code. Completely laughable. Looking at the pictures they offered online, this was a nice place to stay... Stepping inside, it "feels" rightly, vintage 'ish. Opening the door to the room, the smell is "acceptable" with the age. But, barely equipped. No fridge, no thermostat control and no fan. Other...
