The lobby is fairly nondescript, with even more nondescript hallways leading to the elevators. The standard rooms in the Sheraton are fairly spacious and comfortable, although the decor is a bit dated. You can always count on toiletries like soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. There is an indoor pool and jacuzzi that is very popular with the kids (don't try going on a Sunday morning unless you enjoy getting splashed by lots of flopping young kids). The workout room is small but is comfortably stocked with towels, magazines, water cooler and a TV. Seemingly every nook and cranny of the hotel has at least one issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.
I am not sure why anyone would want to stay here unless you have business in Brookfield. This is not a knock against the hotel though, which is certainly decent enough. Downtown Milwaukee is not too far away (about a 15 minute drive), but I am more of an "urban" person who likes to walk around town. Staying in this area will naturally limit your time about central Milwaukee. You will need a car to get around here, although the Sheraton does free parking to guests with its surface parking lot.
