Marcus Hotels & Resorts Renovates Lobby Lounge at Hilton Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE—Marcus Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation, announced that renovations of the lobby lounge in the historic Hilton Milwaukee in Milwaukee, Wis. have been completed. The lounge has been renamed Monarch Lounge.
In addition to the art deco lounge, the renovation covers 3,800 square feet and includes seating areas, workstations, and a media center. A stone and metal fireplace was added to the south wall, while an interactive media work area anchors the north end with touch-screens, iPads, a magazine stand and printer.
“The renovation and expansion of the lobby offers our guests additional space to work, relax and congregate,” said Steve Magnuson, Hilton Milwaukee’s vice president and general manager, in an announcement. “We hope visitors enjoy the many upgrades we’ve added, and that they find the new lobby area a comfortable and inviting place to spend their time.”
As part of the renovation, several large windows on the east side of the building, which were covered for decades, have been opened to overlook 5th Street and offer a unique view of Wisconsin Avenue and downtown. Openings have also been created to overlook the upper and lower lobbies. Design elements of the renovated lounge include wood architecture, leather furniture, new floor covering, and fixtures to reflect the hotel’s original 1920s style.
The Monarch Room transformation marks one of the final phases in a multi-million dollar renovation of the hotel’s guestrooms, lobby area, public spaces, fitness center, and more.Filed in Press Coverage
