This is a friendly and pleasant hotel right the center of a charming town, right beside the harbor and beautiful Lake Michigan. The rooms are clean and there are laundry facilities upstairs which makes it a great stop on a long trip. The bar is particularly wonderful and friendly and, even when travelling alone, I am greeted and treated warmly...

Dear Kay R Thank you for your nice comments about the Holiday Inn Port Washington and specifically Laura in our Bar. Those comments mean a lot to me. When possible call us and ask us for an upgrade to a Lakeview room. It is such a treat to go to bed and see the Moon simmering off Lake Michigan Hope...

I've stayed at this hotel countless times in the last thirty years and have never truly been disapointed. That being said, the walls even in the newer portion of hotel are thin enough to hear your neighbor. In our case four ladies who stayed up to 2:00am. The staff at the hotel is very nice and the rooms are quite...

Dear Sloomis Thanks for staying with us at the Holiday Inn Port Washington. We do have some carpets that need some attention and hopefully that will be taken care of soon. As far as a Good Winter Stay, I am hoping Spring gets here soon Thanks again for you comments RT

Port Washington may be just 2 hours from Chicago but it's a world apart. We love dropping out (and into) Port when we stay at Harborview. Watching the sunrise from a lakeview room is the best way to start the day. Staff has always been great even when nearly overwhelmed by 2 bus loads of kids. A big thank you...

While it was a little hard for me to figure out how to get into the parking lot (not hard to confuse me though :) Everything else went perfect. The ladies at the front desk were pleasant and very helpful. They started a little chit-chat (some people don't realize how important that is) which made us feel right at home....

Dear Katie Thanks for staying with us at the Holiday Inn Harborview. You stayed in one of our suites. It perfect for a small little family. As you mentioned you should have stayed longer to take in the wonderful views of Lake Michigan. Be sure to come back in the Spring RT

We stayed here in the cold weather. This is the place to be in the summer. Right on the edge of Lake Michigan. Rooms are what you'd expect with the brand. Ozaukee county bike trail goes right through here.

Hi Our hotel is such a wonderful location you are able to appreciate Lake Michigan with ease and in many ways. By parking your car and walking around Port itself you get many views of the lake. Or by walking around the marina and even walking out to the Lighthouse you can feel the Lake if you desire. Or just...

Perhaps we were pleasantly surprised after reading some of the reviews about the hotel being dated, but we were happy with our room and the hotel facilities. We really enjoyed our view of the lake and being able to walk around the charming downtown area. Breakfast was really good and served in a well lit room with large windows. We...

Stayed last night at the Holiday Inn in Port Washington.

Welcome to the Holiday Inn Harborview Port Washington Hotel,, located just 20 miles North of downtown Milwaukee on the shore of Lake Michigan. There are no other Wisconsin destinations that can offer the same sort of East-coast, New England-like charm. The Holiday Inn Harborview is one of the few Lake Michigan harbortown hotels in Wisconsin, offering a unique & charming boutique hotel experience. All guests are sure to appreciate the convenience of being adjacent to the Port Washington Marina, downtown shops & boutiques and some of the finest restaurants in the Milwaukee area including our very own Rusty Anchor Saloon & Eatery! For nearby recreation we are one of the only Port Washington, Milwaukee, Cedarburg, Mequon and Grafton area hotels near: charter fishing on Lake Michigan (3 boats on property), Interurban Bike Trail (starts on property), Elkhart Lake Road America and Kohler Wisconsin. In addition, being one of the few Cedarburg area hotels, many guests will take the short 8-mile trip to experience the Cedar Creek Winery & antique shops in historic downtown Cedarburg.
