Delivering an indoor and outdoor hotel experience along the shores of Lake Michigan

Westin Hotels
Downtown Milwaukee

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

With Milwaukee selected for the first Westin Hotel in the state of Wisconsin, Kahler Slater was tasked with designing a building that would celebrate the flag’s arrival while infusing the standards of their internationally renowned brand.

The resulting Westin Downtown Milwaukee is a 220-guestroom hotel strategically positioned in the heart of Milwaukee’s employment center. At 9-stories, standing just blocks from the lakeshore and Summerfest grounds, the hotel gives guests dramatic views of downtown and Lake Michigan, with easy access to a wide variety of area businesses and entertainment options that surround.

The urban environment requires a street level to greet the guests and offer valet and bellman services, while the main lobby is on the second floor connecting to Milwaukee’s tallest building - the US Bank tower. The facility includes at 10,000 square foot conference facility, Stella Van Buren a full-service restaurant and bar, and a guestroom tower with up to 36 guestrooms per floor.
