Authored by Kristine Hansen, the article on About Travel outlines the hotel's high end amenities, including rooftop terrace and lounge overlooking the Historic Third Ward skyline, beautiful guest rooms with luxurious bedding, business center, fitness center, lobby bar, ballrooms for meeting and banquet space, and pool.
The hotel's restaurant, Tre Rivali, offers Mediterranean inspired cuisine—from handmade pastas, such as pappardelle (braised pork neck ragout, ricotta salata), to wood fired pizza using locally sourced ingredients, to smoked fish with red wine vinegar. Celebrity chef, Heather Terhune, who was featured on Bravo's hit T.V. series, Top Chef, spearheads the restaurant's kitchen.
Guest rooms are broken down into three categories: King Deluxe (includes a King bed and walk-in shower), Queen Queen Deluxe (two Queen beds and walk-in shower), and King Spa (King bed and oversized soaking tub). Suites are available, with lavish views of the Third Ward.
"Who is the target guest? It’s a hybrid. Could be a foodie, or a yogi (yoga mats and a yoga television channel are in each room), or someone who wants to be in the thick of the action. Once you park your car here, you’ll never need to leave thanks to dozens of restaurants, art galleries, bars and specialty boutiques in the Third Ward neighborhood. Downtown Milwaukee, Lake Michigan’s shoreline and the Milwaukee Art Museum are all within one mile, accessible on foot or via the hotel’s loaner bicycles. Henry Maier Festival Park is just a few blocks to the East, should you be in town for a cultural festival or Summerfest."
Animal lovers can rejoice, as the Kimpton brand welcomes pets, with no pound limit for dogs. Dog beds are available upon arrival, along with ceramic food and water bowls.
