The Pfister Hotel has been a historic destination in Milwaukee since its grand opening in 1893. This vision by Guido Pfister and his son Charles has been viewed as the “Grand Hotel of the West” and a welcoming and luxurious meeting place. At its opening, the Pfister hotel boasted groundbreaking features such as fireproofing, electricity through the hotel and thermostat controls in every room.
As a historic destination in Wisconsin, The Pfister is a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and Historic Hotels of America, a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
We’re proud of our heritage and how we fit into Milwaukee. This vibrant city is full of life and has a unique story to tell and the Pfister is a leading role in that story.
The Pfister has been proud to be recognized by the important Mission of Historic Milwaukee, Inc. to increase awareness of and commitment to Milwaukee’s history, architecture, and the preservation of our built environment.
