Best Hotels Near American Family Field (Miller Park)

The Milwaukee Brewer’s American Family Field (formally called Miller Park), is located right in the center of the city. American Family field has vast parking lots for tailgating, which makes it ideal for Milwaukee area residents, but a bit less convenient for visitors to the city.

We always suggest staying at one of the best hotels near American Family field and catching a free shuttle into a game. That way you don’t have to worry about driving, or paying for parking, and you have a day to explore all the things to do in Milwaukee.

Unless you want to pay for a taxi or ride-sharing service before and after the game, it makes better sense to stay at a hotel that offers a shuttle to and from the game. Read below for a quick guide to area hotels that can make your visit to Miller Park an easy adventure.


1. Aloft Milwaukee Downtown

Aloft Milwaukee Downtown has a fantastic location right on the edge of two major entertainment districts, Old World 3rd Street and Water Street. The hotel itself is super comfortable, has modern garbs, and has a great bar that really comes alive at night.

More importantly, the hotel offers a shuttle to and from the game, so consider making Aloft your temporary home while visiting the city to hit a Brewers game.


2. Ambassador Hotel

The historic Ambassador Hotel is a Milwaukee landmark. A few years ago, the hotel underwent a major renovation and now serves as one of the best hotels in Milwaukee. The hotel includes an excellent restaurant and a great art deco-inspired bar. The location is a little outside of downtown, just west of Marquette University’s campus, which still makes it a great location to explore different parts of the city.

Better yet, the hotel offers a shuttle to Miller Park, so if you plan on seeing a game, this may be the hotel for you.


3. Best Western Milwaukee West

The Best Western Milwaukee West may not have artfully inspired interiors, or a gourmet restaurant attached, but what matters most about this hotel is that the rooms are really affordable, and it probably is the only hotel near American Family field that you can walk to the stadium from, saving you a boring shuttle ride.

The walk should take you about twenty minutes, but considering most of the baseball season falls in summer, this shouldn’t be much of a problem. The hotel is also located nearby other area attractions, like Kegel’s Inn which has some of the best German food and fish fries in the city.

For the most convenient way to access Miller Park on game day, consider the Best Western Milwaukee West.


4. Sonesta Hotel

The Sonesta Hotel is an ideal hotel if you plan on staying on the west end of the city. The hotel has a nice restaurant and bar, comfortable rooms, and comes at an affordable rate.

Just because the hotel is located on the west end does not mean it isn’t located by any area attractions. In fact, the hotel is still a short drive to downtown and is perfectly located to see some of the things Wauwatosa has to offer, such as excellent restaurants and Mayfair Mall.

The hotel also offers a shuttle that will take you to and from the game in roughly ten minutes. Consider the Sonesta Hotel for your hotel when seeing a Brewers game.


5. Hampton Inn & Suites

The Hampton Inn & Suites in downtown Milwaukee is a fantastic choice for visitors to the city and is budget-friendly. The hotel places you right in the center of downtown and offers spacious yet affordable rooms ensuring you won’t break the budget on housing. Museums, concerts, restaurants, the lakefront – everything is within walking distance when you stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites.

While the hotel itself does not offer a game-day shuttle, there are numerous restaurants and bars within walking distance that do for a cheap price. The closest is Mo’s Irish Pub, which is just about a block away, that offers a complimentary shuttle with the purchase of a couple of drinks.

Milwaukee Brat House is another option. It’s only about a five-minute walk, has great food, and will get you to the game in what feels like a party bus.

Having these Brewer game shuttle options so close makes Hampton Inn & Suites an ideal choice for hitting a Brewer game while in Milwaukee.


6. The Brewhouse Inn & Suites

The Brewhouse Inn & Suites, located in the historic Pabst brewing district, is one of the area’s newest and trendiest boutique hotels. In fact, it is housed in what was once part of the brewery, and the large copper brewing kettles are still on display. Staying at the Brewhouse Inn & Suites places you right on the edge of downtown, so just a short walk or drive into the downtown, and has numerous bars, restaurants, and microbreweries within just a block or two.

The hotel also offers a game-day shuttle to and from Miller Park. While the hotel is certainly on the pricier side, you won’t regret choosing to stay at the Brewhouse Inn & Suites if you are planning to splurge a little bit.
