  • "What a gorgeous place, and the staff was top notch. I felt like a dignified guest. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to a true Milwaukee land mark. Proof of greatness doesn't have to be giant buildings though. After the event, the staff shared some gloves and plastic wrap so we could donate the leftovers. It's the little things that make all things possible. Well done, and my gratitude is eternal."
