Art and architecture gather by the water. An eclectic, yet inviting, space that stays true to the city’s authentic Midwestern hospitality. Milwaukee’s rich history of art and architecture was the inspiration for the hotel’s design. The metal, granite and terracotta exterior sets a welcoming stage. Inside, an elegant, open lobby features a variety of warm, rich materials. A rooftop terrace with retractable walls offers dramatic city views. It is clear that every element is thoughtfully designed to pay quiet homage to names like Saarinen, Kahler, Layton, Bradley and Herzfeld – the greats who made Milwaukee a world-class destination for all things art. With the world-renowned Calatrava Art Museum just steps from our front door, it is easy to understand the passion for great design that is reflected in every space of the hotel. Milwaukee’s distinctive neighborhoods, art, architecture and unique sense of place have created a vibrant community – and the Milwaukee Westin is at the heart of it all. The proximity to all points downtown make the hotel a hub for exploring the city, with easy access to the city’s most sought after venues, events and destinations. This hotel was designed to be Milwaukee’s “Front Door” – a gateway to everything Milwaukee has to offer and a respite from the excitement of the city.
