The Pfister Hotel is truly the perfect wedding venue - from start to finish they make the whole process so easy and enjoyable. The hotel is so beautiful and elegant, a true Milwaukee landmark. We had our wedding in the Imperial Ballroom, and it was spectacular. And because we had our wedding in December we got to enjoy their fabulous Christmas decorations as well. They assign you an event manager who also serves as a day of coordinator - we had Mickey S, and he was outstanding. From day one he was so helpful and organized, always willing to answer questions and offer advice. The Pfister catering is phenomenal, they have so many options. We did both our ceremony and our reception at the Pfister, and we also stayed at the hotel and got ready at the Wells Spa salon. Having everything in one place was wonderful, especially considering how unpredictable Wisconsin winters can be. It was also the perfect place for a winter wedding because there are so many gorgeous places inside the hotel for pictures, you won’t mind at all if you can’t be outside! We could not have asked for a better venue, I would highly recommend the Pfister to anyone.Sent on 01/30/2018

Could not have asked for a better wedding reception venue! There is no other hotel like The Pfister! It's a beautiful and timeless venue. The staff is so friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They also do all the catering for wedding weekends; including cocktail hour, dinner, late night reception food, and day after breakfast. The food was delicious, the ballrooms are beautiful, and the staff is very professional. We absolutely loved it, and would recommend it to all couples getting married!Sent on 02/21/2017
