Burst Pipe Floods Hotel

The Pfister Hotel is dealing with a mess after a pipe burst and several rooms flooded Saturday.

Clean up crews spent the day at the historic hotel in downtown Milwaukee Saturday.

A manager with the hotel says a pipe broke in a stairwell.

Water poured out for at least ten minutes and ended up in the basement of the hotel. Eight guest rooms had water logged carpets which will have to be torn out.

Fans were brought in to help dry out other areas.

The hotel itself is still open. But the burst pipe foiled Tammy Spoek's day at the hotel's spa. "I was down at the spa and i was hearing that there was water. Water's coming from the ceilings. So she came to me and said Tammy, I'm really sorry but we're going to have to cancel your appointment," Tammy said.

Spoek says it appeared the pipe broke somewhere near the seventh floor.

Hotel management says they believe the burst pipe is due to the cold temperatures the last few days.

The Pfister's computer system apparently went down. But the hotel and its restaurants did remain open.
