Renaissance Milwaukee West

Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

Marriott International engaged Kahler Slater to reimagine an existing 1970’s office building into a full-service 196 room hotel. The existing structure, located at the bustling corner of a key intersection on Milwaukee's west side, was stripped to its concrete frame, and replaced with new cladding transforming the façade into a high-end contemporary building.

The Renaissance Milwaukee West provides a sophisticated but welcoming modern vibe. The first floor of the tower features the hotel lobby, lounge, and bar. A two-story addition was added to the west side of the existing structure to make room for a destination restaurant and a 4,500-square-foot grand ballroom. 

The reuse of the building’s concrete structure provided substantial schedule and cost advantages for the development.
