MILWAUKEE, June 6, 2017 -- Westin Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR) 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."

Perfectly situated in the heart of downtown Milwaukee and steps away from the waterfront at the end of Michigan Street, The Westin Milwaukee features 220 thoughtfully-designed 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. 

The Westin Milwaukee features fresh and healthy creations from the SuperFoodsRx™ menu, as well as energizing fresh juices and smoothies.  For the more indulgent, the hotel is also home to a modern Italian-American steakhouse, Stella Van Buren. Stella's high-end bar menu contains a meticulously curated selection of bourbon, an extensive wine list and a draft beer list that is entirely from Wisconsin breweries.  An extension of the hotel's thoughtful food and beverage program and designed for inspired celebration, The Westin Milwaukee also offers a total of nine meeting rooms with more than 9,000 square feet of event space, anchored by a stunning and expansive Grand Ballroom.

"Milwaukee is infectiously energetic, and we couldn't be more proud to bring Westin's empowering commitment to wellness to a city that embraces that spirit," said Jeffrey Hess, General Manager, The Westin Milwaukee. "Surrounded by lakefront bike trails, music and museums, art and architecture, we are excited to treat our global guests and local residents to a refreshing experience that provides a real taste of the city."

Whether traveling for business or leisure, Westin's mission is to be a partner in guests' well-being, allowing them the ability to regain control of their routine on the road. The hotel offers the brand's signature WestinWORKOUT® fitness studio, with state-of-the-art exercise equipment from world-class brands in an open, airy and well-designed space. For travelers who wish to take their fitness routines outdoors, the hotel features the popular and pioneering RunWESTIN™ program, offering guests a guided run - led by the hotel's Run Concierge – along Milwaukee's lakefront.

"Bringing the Westin brand to Milwaukee as our third project with Jackson Street has been an honor," said Chris Anderson, Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, White Lodging.  "We're pleased to continue growing together in the city, and look forward to welcoming the community into the hotel."
