Here are the best places to stay if you’re looking to relax, rejuvenate and rekindle your relationship in Milwaukee.
Located in the heart of the city, Hotel Metro combines modern luxury amenities with glamorous Art Deco style.
For the ultimate romantic experience, upgrade your suite and indulge in a six-foot whirlpool tub and a cozy fireplace.
It’s easy to walk to Milwaukee’s great attractions from this all-suite, eco-friendly hotel, but Hotel Metro also provides complimentary bicycles for guest use.
Don’t miss a romantic dinner or a weekend brunch at Pastiche, the hotel’s stylish restaurant.
Built in 1893 in the style of the grand hotels of Europe, this historic gem is truly a Milwaukee icon. One of the Midwest’s premier luxury hotels, it’s no surprise that this is an extremely popular venue for weddings, anniversary parties and all celebrations of romance.
Spend a day relaxing at WELL Spa and people-watching in the beautiful lobby, but make sure to travel up to the 23rd floor in the evening to visit Blu, a glamorous martini and wine bar with a 360-degree view of downtown Milwaukee.
Milwaukee’s newest luxury hotel lets you have your whole romantic vacation under one roof. The 19-story hotel has floor-to-ceiling windows in each room that offer a one-of-a-kind view of downtown Milwaukee.
Enjoy a tempting dinner for two at one of six on-site restaurants (Dream Dance Steak is a popular choice for couples), take in a show at the intimate Northern Lights Theater and maybe even win big on the gaming floor.
Looking for a sophisticated and historical stay outside the bustle of downtown? This intimate boutique offers twelve plush rooms, including three luxury guestrooms perfect for romantic getaways, each named and styled in honor of famous wine-making regions.
At the on-site bistro, Sheridan’s, you and your sweetheart can enjoy wines of the world and art nouveau-style American fare.
If your idea of a romantic getaway includes the full resort experience, one is waiting just south of the city.
Tucked away on 1,300 scenic acres in historic Lake Geneva, this AAA 4 Diamond resort makes it easy to enjoy its beautiful grounds all year with 36 holes of championship golf on two courses, skiing, horseback riding, tennis and miles of biking and hiking trails and, of course, the tranquil WELL Spa + Salon to unwind with a couples treatment after all your outdoor fun.
