Milwaukee is home to America’s most underappreciated RiverWalk. The Milwaukee River is a prime recreation destination in the city — its banks are lined with cafes, hotels, restaurants. Simply put, if you’re visiting Milwaukee for beer tastings, nights out, and other cultural highlights of Wisconsin’s biggest city, you want to stay as close to the RiverWalk as possible. Fortunately, some of the best hotels in Milwaukee are nearby.

Case in point, stay on the river walk at Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel. This iconic property puts you in the heart of the action, with trendy dining and drinking to be had on-site. This hotel is a great choice for those looking to dive into downtown Milwaukee’s social scene. In addition to its four restaurants and two bars, the Saint Kate hosts rotating art exhibits in the lobby.

Best yet, the Saint Kate is offering great rates this fall and winter, with rooms as low as $210 — a steal for one of the best hotels in Milwaukee.

Some of the rooms are standard, well-trimmed hotel experiences, with a touch of art.

Others, however, are wonderfully over-the-top.

Within walking distance of the hotel are the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Fiserv Forum, and the heart of East Town — where you’ll find breweries, museums, and easy access to the shoreline of Milwaukee Bay. You can also get to Cathedral Square Park on foot in just five minutes. The hotel is noted as an easy win for couples, so if you’re traveling with your partner, surprise them by having the front desk make a dinner reservation at the nearby Sanford restaurant.

Inside the room, enjoy 24-hour room service as you take in panoramic views of the city skyline. You’ll be comfortable, elevated, and well-rested to explore Brew City without need for a rental car.

Price: From $210
