The Pfister is a stunning facility. The only negative thing about our stay was that the gorgeous pool was closed for servicing and when I called to ask about its hours of operation, I was not told it was closed. The room was spacious, lovely, comfortable, and the view awesome.

The Hotel is beautiful. The staff does not go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Room service took over an hour, wrong order delivered and not very tasty. Asked for a bottle opener to be brought to our room, never came. The cafe food for not very good. The buffet breakfast for our large group was more like a continental breakfast at a cheaper hotel. And even though the bartender at the buffet had soda behind the bar he said he could not sell me one because that was not part of the buffet. I went from the top floor to the lobby to get the soda I wanted to have with my buffet. A hotel with good service would have served at 5 cent soda to the person spending thousands of dollars to come to Milwaukee that weekend. The place really is a treasure. Just beautiful and all the staff look so tidy, they just missed the mark on service. Oh and we watched the bartender over serve a customer so much alcohol that he was falling over and knocking down chairs and then they kicked him out. Pretty sloppy. I just think they could do a lot better.
