There are thousands of hotels to choose from no matter where you stay, with options ranging from corporate giants to cozy B&Bs. Finding the ideal spot for you and your family’s trip can be daunting. In the big world of accommodation, there's a small group that stands out: the top 50 hotels globally. And we're proud to say that Kinn Guesthouse is part of it! 

American travel magazine Fifty Grande has placed us on their list of the top 50 hotels providing incredible experiences for under $350 a night. Referencing Kinn’s “retro-eclectic aesthetic” and our signature Pro Series chef’s kitchen appliances, Fifty Grande’s review notes that “it’s like you own a home right in downtown Milwaukee.” 

This accolade is a testament to our commitment to offering unparalleled hospitality and memorable stays that blend comfort, convenience, and functionality. By harnessing that midwestern Wisconsin charm, we aim to make guests feel right at home while exploring Milwaukee. It's an honor to see that commitment recognized by the folks at Fifty Grande. 

What Makes a Hotel One of the Best?

Being one of the “best hotels” is not a title we take lightly. Our goal is to provide every guest with an unforgettable experience, all at a reasonable nightly rate. This means delivering top-notch service, offering incredible amenities, and ensuring that every moment spent with us is one to cherish. 

The story of Kinn Guesthouse began when Kinn’s founder realized the need for a new type of lodging– one that met the expectations of today’s traveler. Modern families are no longer seeking impersonal mega-properties and traditional hotel services. That’s why we created a truly authentic experience that prioritizes comfort and convenience above all else. 

Our self-check-in system and contactless service ensure efficiency and safety, while our spacious rooms adorned with modern amenities create a serene retreat. We believe in empowering guests to explore and unwind at their own pace, just as they would in the comfort of their own home. At Kinn, we've set out to redefine what it means to stay in a hotel, and that’s why we’re known as one of the best hotels in Milwaukee.

“Absolutely great unique place. We stay at a wide range of “non-chain” lodging – BNB’s, lodges, cabins, boutique hotels, etc and this is definitely one of the most pleasant discoveries…great old building, super location - Tons of great eating options nearby - the character of squeaky old steps, funky art and those great tall windows - one of the best - We’ll be back and spread the word!”
