It’s my first time to Milwaukee and honestly this Midwest city has completely surprised me starting with my hotel, the Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel. It’s in a great location and on the Riverwalk. It’s easy an easy walk to Milwaukee’s Public Market and other tourist hotspots and city attractions.
Saint Kate is a vibrantly decorated hotel. I walked into a bustling bar scene in the lobby on a Sunday afternoon. I’m in one of the Double Queen Deluxe Rooms.
A couple of things stood out as soon as I opened the door – the bathroom barndoor, in the sink, printed lampshades by the beds, and super cool photographer lamp light. The room also has a great TV, expansive desk space, mini-fridge, laptop-size in-room safe, comfy beds and shower/tub combo. A few extra touches are a red ukulele, Crosley record player, butcher paper and colored pencils for drawing, doodling or in my case making notes, a view of the Milwaukee River and art on the back wall of the closet.
There were two waters and individually wrapped sanitizing wipes in the room, but no coffee. That’s because each floor has a coffee bar and cold water machine next to the elevators. The only downside to my room is that it is close to an elevator so it’s too noisy for me, but the upside is the room is close to coffee!
If you’re heading to Milwaukee for a Brewers or Bucks game, a conference or playing Whistling Straits golf course in Kohler, book a stay at the Saint Kate.
