    Breakfast at the Cafe was OK. Wasn't "off the charts" as I would expect at the Pfister.

    Loved the old school feel of this beautiful property. The staff was very kind and the food and drink on property were top notch as well. Can’t wait to come back for another Milwaukee getaway at the Pfister.

    Nothing!

    Beautiful hotel, the paintings were incredible, great staff. The food at our conference (held at the hotel) was the best I've ever had at a conference.

    The elevators were very slow on the "old" side of the hotel
