Marcus Hotels and Resorts Begins Two Major Renovation Projects
Hilton Milwaukee City Center and Grand Geneva Resort & Spa will undergo $30 million in renovations
Renovations at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center will begin with guestroom and lobby remodeling. Renovations to the hotel’s 730 guestrooms include High Definition LCD televisions, new bedding, carpeting, furniture and artwork. Other renovations will include new tile flooring and furnishings for the hotel’s elegant Fifth Street lobby level entrance.
Otto noted that the next phase of the project, expected to begin later in the year, will include upgrades to other areas of the hotel such as the meeting rooms, lobby areas, restaurants, gift shop and exterior elements of the historic property.
“At the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, renovations on the exterior pool and WELL Spa are under way. In addition, all 355 guestrooms will receive new carpeting, drapery, bedding and furniture. Bathrooms, including 33 suite bathrooms, will be remodeled with new fixtures, vanities, marble flooring, lighting, wet bar renovations and chic mirrors with built-in TVs that disappear when turned off,” said Otto.
“Other renovations planned at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa will include new artwork, lighting and additional furniture upgrades in all of the guestrooms, along with reconfigured bathrooms in the hotel’s 20 luxurious Newport Suites and Newport Executive Suites. We believe our guests will be very pleased with the new look and amenities in both of these exceptional properties,” added Otto.
