And there are hotels that are created in the shells of buildings erected for other purposes, like the Hampton Inn on West Wisconsin Avenue, which occupies a converted office building. Over the years, I've stayed in both. A few of the latter kind of hotel have remained planted firmly in my memory. Here are some of them.

Brewhouse Inn offers outpourings of luxury, history

Getting acquainted with the Brewhouse's Blue Ribbon Pub

Published July 26, 2013

In the restaurant, there are high ceilings, nice touches like shiny tin decorative panels along the bar. There's a great patio and, make a mental note, Blue Ribbon Pub runs a free shuttle to Brewers games. The menu is basic pub fare with sandwiches, salads, apps, all reasonably priced, especially when you consider you're eating in a Downtown hotel.
