Testimonials

Newly remodeled space. The common area an my room were beautifuly appointed. Charles kept in contact and made sure we had everything we could possibly want or need. The associated restaurant/bar on the lower level was great. A well valued menu and great staff. All in all, I really enjoyed my stay. I believe this place is going to book up and stay booked up.
“I was booked by a company I was working for. As such I was not directly involved with the financials. That being said I can state with confidence, that the amenities and personal touches are likely worth way more than what was charged.”

Great, brand new place in the Milwaukee area. Walkable to many Bayview hotspots and convenient to downtown. Check-in is super easy with electronic locks and there is even an excellent restaurant in the building. I will be personally recommending this Kinn MKE to my friends and family!
Great place…I think you have a hit on your hands! Best, Jamieson

Staying in Suite #1 was like staying in New York in the middle of Milwaukee. Everything is clean and modern. Even the soap smells fantastic! The art on the walls were fascinating and overall, this suite was the perfect getaway for my girlfriend and me. The location was great because it’s surrounded by good places to eat like Cafe Corazon, but didn’t have the loud noises that usually come from a popular area. Charles, the owner of the Kinn, was very friendly and had great suggestions for how to spend our time. Everything about the suite/ common room area was neat and organized and anything you could possibly need was provided, and more! We will definitely be coming back and staying here again! 🙂

Loved everything about the Kinn – great location and amazingly comfortable – loved having a central space to hang. Kinn thought of every creature comfort and took it to the next level. We live in the Chicago suburbs and cancelled our stay at the Ritz Chicago to do a quick trip to Milwaukee instead to check out Kinn – and will do it again soon – the communal kitchen lounge, very spacious rooms, the Apple TV mirroring, beautiful bathrooms, the upscale restaurant and bar – can’t wait to go back.

Lovely place in a vibrant area. Rivals some of the best hotels we have ever stayed in, but with a much more comfortable and personal feel. Would recommend 100%.
– KYLE MKE

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kinn! First, the location is awesome! A cute, quaint neighborhood with an eclectic feel only 7 minutes to downtown. There are many shops and great restaurants within walking distance. Check out Cafe Corazon, you will not be disappointed. Kinn is a charming and beautiful place to stay! We were warmly welcomed by the owner who showed us around and gave us some history about the property. Kinn offers a large communal space to relax and unwind with a full kitchen, fireplace, TV, music and laundry room! Kinn is impeccably kept. The rooms are large, open and airy with the most gorgeous windows and comfy beds. Another perk to staying at Kinn is that you have access to Kindred, the restaurant downstairs that offers a hip and cool ambiance and delicious fair. It is evident that the owners payed attention to every little detail to make this the perfect home away from home. We will definitely be making our way back to this little gem! There is no other place that I would rather stay when visiting Milwaukee!

We were in town for a family birthday and are so pleased with our stay at Kinn. The location is fantastic for Milwaukee. If you want to make your way downtown, it is a very quick Uber ride. The immediate Bay View area that Kinn is in has tons of walk-able restaurants, a movie theater, and several coffee shops. The room itself was very spacious, with a comfortable bed and overall intimate, homey feel. The water pressure was fantastic (big thing for me), and we everything we needed was ready in the room. We were also able to sit and have coffee in the morning in the common area by the fireplace. I will definitely be staying here again and it is now my go to spot to refer friends and family if they are in the Milwaukee area. I want to for sure make it back when the restaurant on the lower level opens up!

I’m not sure where to start, but I guess to say that I’ve already booked my next two stays here pretty much says it all. Beds were very comfortable, bathrooms were gorgeous and brand new, decor details in the room makes each room feel special. Every detail was clearly thought of when they designed and outfitted this property. The kitchen area was great for coffee (Nespresso pods and machine provided) and breakfast in the morning and evenings if you wanted to stay in and make something. We felt very welcomed and like locals staying in this neighborhood. Great bars and restaurants nearby (Kindred downstairs, Odd Duck a few blocks away). Wish I had found this before my last visit to Milwaukee when I stayed in a standard hotel downtown. The personalized service at Kinn is unmatched… Charles even asked about dietary restrictions and purchased us some almond milk for coffee and cereal (cereal and other goodies are provided). You won’t get that at a big chain hotel!
– ANNA CHARLOTTE:

Loved Kinn!! It’s so beautiful and comfortable and unique – I cannot wait to go back. You can’t beat the location and everything about the place is top notch. We cancelled our weekend at the Ritz Chicago to try Kinn and am thrilled we did. It has the creature comforts of luxury hotels but a cool factor that most just don’t. From the unique and comfortable furniture to the artwork throughout the place – Kinn is like a piece of art itself. And the Apple air play, nespresso, great soaps, free laundry shows it wants to go the extra mile for its guests. But what really makes it extraordinary is the common kitchen and lounge area. And then you don’t even need to leave the building because you have a fantastic restaurant and cozy bar downstairs. I cannot wait to plan a trip with couples and another with just girls. Thx Kinn for exceeding our expectations and making a very memorable weekend!
– TRACY CHICAGO

Stayed at Kinn this weekend with a large group of girls. This was the ideal place to stay in Milwaukee! Charles anticipated our every need. The building is beautifully renovated and has a kitchen and common space perfect for socializing. Kinn has everything you could want with super soft bedding, toiletries from Soho House’s Cowshed line, Sonos, AppleTVs, etc. The rooms are luxurious and cozy. Will definitely be coming back!

Wanted to get out of the city (chicago) for a night with less than a 2 hour drive so we picked Milwaukee…. looked at a few places not knowing the city at all and ended up at kinn guesthouse. What a great experience! Traveling frequently throughout the year I’ve enjoyed both hotels and airbnb but never a hybrid… kinn guesthouse is exactly that with all the comforts of home in a hotel setting….a perfect blend! We had the pleasure of chatting with owners Connie and Charles who were kind enough to personally greet us and had fresh fruit, delicious bacon and amazing cinnamon buns ready the next morning. The building is clean and decorated beautifully, every corner presenting a thoughtful assortment of art and hand selected design. Nothing was missing from high end toiletries to luxurious bedding and even our own space in the common area kitchen. I could easily stay for days feeling right at home. The best part was not having the noise and nuance of hotel staff outside our room. Last but not least we loved the restaurant kindred which again was beautifully decorated and the desserts amazing!!!
A must stay if your in Milwaukee! Can’t wait to get away again and experience more of kinn guesthouse!
– NICHOLAS R CHICAGO

Located in a wonderful neighborhood in Milwaukee. The lounge is communal, very nice aesthetic. Don’t get me started on the Kindred Restaurant- try the black angus burger!!!
– VICTOR R

Best experience I’ve had in Milwaukee! It is beautifully designed and I felt right at home. The service was exceptional! I am definitely coming back!
– JUSTINE O CHICAGO

This is a great location! The place is beautiful! I think it is most approprIate for adults though.. love the shared kitchen and access to cooking and laundry. Charles was wonderful to work with. The whole visit was great and we can’t wait to return.
– BOB AND BOBBI EAU CLAIRE

By far one of the best appointed and well thought out rooms/spaces I’ve ever stayed in. The room is beautifully decorated and all creature comforts and needs are available such as a full gourmet public kitchen and family room guests can use along with two sets of large modern washer dryers for longer stays. Amazing! 🙂
– AARON R MILWAUKEE

This is a beautiful space with interesting and thoughtful decor. The giant windows are amazing and the bed/pillows were so comfortable. Charles was a great host and helped us out with reservations at the restaurant downstairs (Kindred) which I also recommend!
– MEGAN H DENVER

Kinn is cozy, clean, and the inter decoration is modern and with host’s good taste. I would love to come to Charles’s place again next time. More than all of these, the most important point is that the host is kind, gentle, and truly care about his guests’ living experience. And, he is willing to offer help when we have troubles for preparing our event. Thank you very much!

Kinn feels like a home away from home for me, and made me feel like a local during my job transfer. Bay View is a great neighborhood that has the best in MKE restaurants, bars, coffee shops, shops, etc. Kinn is close to it all while still being in what feels like a residential area. Would never stay downtown again or allow any of my friends and family to do so. I now live here and I will always have out of town guests who don’t stay with me book at Kinn. The rooms are clean, the fridge is always stocked (wine and farm fresh eggs? yes, please!) and there is an incredible restaurant downstairs if you want to be lazy. What more could you ask for??
– ANNA: CHARLOTTE

I was blown away by this incredible addition to Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood. The rooms are decorated with such attention to detail, the artwork, furniture, color scheme, everything is just perfect. It’s not every hotel that offers full size shampoo in the shower, really nice touch. The shared common are is anything but common. This spectacular room has a huge kitchen with state of the art appliances and all you need to make a meal. I loved the oversized windows and cozy fireplace, the cool blue leather sofa is a perfect place to chill. Thanks Kinn Guesthouse!
– JIM O MILWAUKEE

The Kinn is my new favorite in Milwaukee. It has a homey, good energy feel throughout, with an exceptional focus on detail. The rooms are very large, well appointed, and each has a beautiful bathroom. The owners have somehow managed to blend the industrial with the cozy. When I toured it, I truly did not want to leave. I will be directing all of my colleagues and friends in this direction when they are in town. It’s a work of art!
– KRISTINE H MILWAUKEE

I had the pleasure of touring Kinn last week and to say I was impressed is an understatement. Thank u Connie and Charles owners and proprietors of Kinn for improving mke with your obvious love, efforts and talent. Kinn is a new mke gem and one of the many reasons why mke has so much to offer and is such a great place on a Great Lake 😉
– DIANE S MILWAUKEE

I was given a tour last weekend and will recommend to any out of town guest. It’s spacious and perfectly decorated. Kindred is my new favorite restaurant. Wonderful food and fun drinks. The Kinn and Kindred are a perfect match.
– SARAH B MILWAUKEE

In a league of its own, Kinn seamlessly blends style, sophistication and comfort. Perfectly appointed, the rooms are immaculate and interesting – no two rooms are alike. The common area features a fully equipped kitchen – a cool concept that gives you flexibility during your stay. We ate at Kindred, the restaurant on the first floor. The atmosphere was fun and the food was delicious. A beautiful hotel in a prime Bayview location.
