Where to stay in Milwaukee

Staying in the city center puts you right in the heart of the activity, and means you can take advantage of all the things to do in Milwaukee’s walkable downtown area. Options here include big chain hotels as well as quirky inns. Party animals should sacrifice some sleep to stay close to Milwaukee’s lively bar scene, centered around Water Street. Those who want a little more rest should consider a scenic resort in the greater Milwaukee area; many of these are within easy driving distance of the main attractions.

  • The St. Paul Fish Market which offers fresh seafood and lobster dinner for $15.95 everyday is in this place. There is a wide variety of eateries from Thai to Mediterranean fares. Deli meat and cheese, pastry and coffee shops are inside the public market. There are also several bars inside where you can just hang out and sip a glass of wine for $4.00.
  • I love the environment, I like to go for seafood, grab some soup for the rest of the week,I love the bakery,there is the spices Place ,the chocolate place ,& the wine store,.when I Have a visitor out of town I taken there looking for cheese, grab a bite at the delicious Hawaiian BBQ sandwiches, or the amazing Lobster Roll is around 15$ but is all worthy every single bite big pieces of real lobster meat.Any time you want to take a lunch you can fine something delicious. At the Milwaukee Public Market..Is EXCELLENT
  • It's fun if you've never been. Feels 'touristy' but there are a wide variety of food options and some stores with neat gadgets. It is always busy - so if you plan to get in and out quickly for your lunch period you may want to make sure you have extra time. Sushi was good, felafel was good and sweets were good! Check it out if you haven't. And buy a cheese orphan!
  • We go here for lunch often! So many choices and everyone is super friendly. We love the fish market. It's cheap and quick!
  • We love everything about the market. Specially, Aladdin's make your own pita, green kitchen's geek salad, and C. Adams sugar cookies! We also got married at the market and couldn't have hoped for a better wedding! The staff are amazing and you don't have to worry about everything being taken care of!
