Westin Hotels & Resorts today announced the opening of The Westin Milwaukee, the brand's debut in Wisconsin. Owned by an affiliate of Jackson Street Holdings LLC and managed by White Lodging Services Corporation, The Westin Milwaukee is poised to be both a gateway to and a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.
"Around the world, travelers are realigning their priorities to put their well-being first, which aligns perfectly with Westin's positioning and continues to fuel growth in both established cities like Milwaukee and emerging destinations like Malaysia," said Brian Povinelli, SVP & Global Brand Leader, Westin Hotels & Resorts. "With the city's fresh energy and increasingly active lifestyle, The Westin Milwaukee is the perfect addition to the brand's growing global portfolio." Situated in the heart of downtown Milwaukee and steps away from the waterfront at the end of Michigan Street, The Westin Milwaukee features 220 guestrooms and suites – almost half boasting unparalleled views of Lake Michigan.
The hotel's design draws inspiration from the Native American meaning of Milwaukee: a gathering place by the water, with a biophilic-focus suggesting that a connection to nature enhances well-being. The hotel's exterior features metal, granite and terracotta; while colors found in nature informed the palette and patterns that add textural layers to the interior design. Natural light floods the hotel's lobby, restaurant and guestrooms, while offering dramatic views of the city.
