Hyatt Place Milwaukee West Hotel Review

Last night, we did something we never had done before--stayed in a hotel in our own city. I received a coupon for a free night at a Hyatt Place hotel and it was expiring at the end of the month, so we decided to take advantage of it and stay at the Milwaukee West location. We didn't have to pay a penny to stay there.

The hotel is located off of Silver Spring Drive and is easy to get to off the freeway.

Check-in was super fast and friendly. The lobby was modern and inviting.

Our room was nice for a more extended stay because it featured a big couch and a divider for the bed area. The HD TV was able to be moved facing the couch or the bed.

Craig is still not feeling well, so we lounged around on the couch for a bit.

Area outside of the bathroom to get ready at, which I did this morning.

The bathroom was clean and updated.

There are Starbucks coffee drinks brewed in the lobby (for a fee). It's a nice touch.

Or you can brew it in your room.

I am not much of a swimmer, but I got in the pool and doggy paddled and did some pool running and dancing. :)

I didn't exercise at the hotel, but the fitness room was nice. It had one elliptical, two treadmills and a recumbent bike.

We watched TV and layed in bed last night. Wall-e was on. :) We love that movie.

The continental breakfast this morning was great. There were lots of options and if you didn't like those, you could use this touch screen to order something else like a breakfast burrito.

I was excited to see some oats (non-instant) and topped my bowl with brown sugar, raisins and peanut butter. Love the smuckers peanut butter packets at hotel breakfasts!

I also had some cantaloupe, an Activia peach yogurt, orange juice and coffee. I was so full from Thanksgiving yet, so I couldn't get anything else in my belly. They also had english muffins, donuts and cereal.

The only negatives we could think of about the hotel were that the pillows were too soft, the curtains didn't cover the entire bottom of the window and light was shining in and we heard trains early in the morning.

I would recommend staying at this location or any Hyatt Place hotel. Next time we travel in the states, I'll definitely be on the lookout for one of these to stay at because the room was clean, modern, spacious and the breakfast was perfect.
