Wow! Wow what a difference. As you read this I have just finished my 2 day mileage run out to LAX and back from MKE. Not too long ago I had a morning flight so I stayed at the SPG Sheraton MKE (about 20+ min drive away) and will never be back there ever again. I had planned to stay at the ALOFT MKE but when the Staybridge appeared on this round of IHG PointBreaks for just 5000 points I changed my plans and am so happy I did.
The hotel is very near MKE. I have reviewed stays at Staybridges before and have been impressed. This time I got a King room with a hot tub (did not try it).
Not only do you get 2 rooms, but a kitchen and a really big bathroom with a separate shower and “getting ready” area that most of the feminine persuasion will appreciate as having the”hair” all steamy just does not work (am I right or am I right). Clearly I don’t have that issue, but I make my point.
Then on to breakfast. The area is spacious and the food was very good. Hot food, ridiculously good service from all the staff just makes a stay so much better.
If you think I am impressed just wait. When I went to check in, as an IHG Platinum, they have, as you can see by the spinning wheel above, a pot luck of your award. Kinda fun but I said: “You need more beer tabs” and the rep says, “you missed happy hour, do you want a beer“? Now anytime anyone greets me with “you want a beer” I know it is going to be a good day. Due to my experience with #Delta I was afraid of #SkunkyGate but then she says, “You want a Leinenkugel” and my fears melted away.
Oh, and wait this just keeps getting better. MKE has a great $6/day discount lot. But, you can stay, just about as long as you want, FREE at the hotel parked away from the main front area. You just fill out a log sheet and they take you to the airport free and pick you up when you call on your return. Seriously, I am in love (and SPG needs to take notes)!
Wifi was free, but if I had to nit-pic at all it would be the restricted speed. I get why hotels do this, so no one uses too much bandwidth, but I still dislike it.
So, if you have any trips to MKE please consider the Staybridge. You will be impressed – I was! – René
