Hotel booking sites show low availability in Milwaukee during 2024 RNC – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

You might have some trouble finding a place to stay if you’re visiting Milwaukee in mid-July.

That’s when the Republican National Convention, and its tens of thousands of attendees, roll into town. It’s also Bastille Days and square in the middle of wedding season.

If you’re looking to book a hotel in or near downtown Milwaukee between July 14-19, when the RNC is in full swing, we wish you the best of luck. According to, there is one hotel in Milwaukee — the Village Inn near the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory — with four available rooms as of Monday afternoon. You’ll be paying $182 a night minimum.

If you’re willing to stay a little farther outside the city center, there are a few more choices. You can book a room at the Best Western Plus Milwaukee Airport Hotel and Conference Center, 5105 S. Howell Ave., for $500 a night, or try the Travelodge by Wyndham Milwaukee, 1716 W. Layton Ave., for $299 a night. Better hurry though with the latter option — there’s only one room still available. Another option is the Rodeway Inn & Suites Milwaukee Airport at 4400 S. 27th St. A room there will run you $247 a night.

According to, there are 46 properties, not counting Airbnbs or bed and breakfasts, with rooms available from July 14-19. That is, unsurprisingly, well below average. There are 157 hotels with vacancies in or near Milwaukee the week of July 7, and about 150 options available for the first weekend of Summerfest this year.

That being said, if you are a member of the official RNC delegation, you should not need to concern yourself with travel arrangements. Delegates from all 50 states were given hotel assignments around the end of March, RNC officials told the Journal Sentinel in April.

All that remains now is for delegates to plan their meals, activities and social gatherings for each day during the convention. And they’re shouldn’t be any shortage of those.
