oming to Milwaukee for the first time is a pleasant experience for many visitors. They are surprised by the highly accessible
airport, the beautiful lakefront and the relative ease in getting around town (the metropolitan area enjoys one of the shortest
commute times in the nation). That’s not to say Milwaukee is worry-free. Like any city, there are things you will need to know
for your first trip to Milwaukee, including the availability of short-term accommodations that you can use as a “home base” during
your stay. There are plenty of hotels and extended-stay options in the five-county area, but because the region is a popular tourist
destination, rooms can be difficult to find on short notice, especially in the summer.
Hotel Locations
Choosing a hotel near where you will work or live will cut down on your travel time and give you more time to enjoy the region while
you are here. While hotels are scattered throughout the metropolitan area, they tend to be congregated in four general areas:
Downtown Milwaukee
, which is centrally located for exploring downtown Milwaukee and North Shore communities
General Mitchell International Airport
, which is close to South Shore communities, including Oak Creek, Franklin and Racine
Highway 100 and I-94
, which is located in the center of the metropolitan area and ideal for exploring Wauwatosa, Brookfield
and Elm Grove
Moorland Road and I-94
, which provides a good base for visiting western Waukesha communities, including Pewaukee and
the Lake Country
