Gorgeous hotel

This hotel is stunning from the grand entrance to the room and it is within walking distance (if you like to walk up to a mile) of Brady Street and Lakeside Brewery. The staff were friendly and room was clean.

Good brunch

My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious Sunday brunch. fresh berries on french toast were delicious. Fruit smoothie is really good. The Knickerbocker has a nice relaxing ambiance. 
The location is near Lake Michigan in downtown Milwaukee.
