The American Club, owned and operated by the Kohler Company, is the Midwest’s only AAA Five-Diamond resort hotel and a member of Historic Hotels of America. The Carriage House, built in 1925 and located several hundred feet from the main American Club hotel building, was originally a dormitory for factory workers.
The Carriage House underwent extensive remodelings and a major addition to create a full spa emersion experience, allowing guests to be pampered in a luxurious environment and stay in their robes all day. From the new contemporary guestrooms, guests ride the elevator down to their spa treatments, or up to enjoy the year-round glass-enclosed rooftop deck with whirlpool, fireplace and lounge. The project included the remodeling of the 54 guestrooms. The walls between many smaller rooms were demolished to provide larger rooms and suites. The addition includes enlarged spa facilities on the lower level and ground floor. Ten guest suites, marketed separately as Immersion Suites, are located on the second and third floors. The suites are noteworthy as they showcase the luxury bathroom products of the Kohler Company. The fourth floor contains an extension to the spa facilities below with a wet and dry lounge area with access to an outdoor terrace. Kahler Slater also completed the golfers' locker rooms at Whistling Straits, home to the 2010 PGA Championship and other signature golf events. The Carriage House guestrooms currently have some of the highest room rates on the resort. The expanded spa is often rated one of the best in the country.
