So, how much do you really know about our 100 oversized loft-style guest rooms?
The next time you cozy up in one of our plush beds, take a look around and experience the history, care and detail that is present in each room.
Here is a look at some of our favorite guest room facts:
- The custom hooks in each room hold up to 80 pounds, ideal for hanging heavy riding leathers. Talk about biker friendly!
- Guest room corridor carpets are inspired by safari motifs that were famous at the turn of the century when Teddy Roosevelt began going on African safaris — the news of which circulated the globe at that time.
- Guest rooms average 400 square feet; suite size by industry standards. Designed to enhance the original structure, many rooms feature original posts, brick walls, fire doors and duct work.
- Rooms feature fine art photography of Milwaukee women by Milwaukee native Charles Dwyer, enlarged to mural size and hand-embellished by the artist. Other original works by Dwyer are displayed in the front desk office, the fitness center and lower level.
- Sculptures above guestroom beds are poured freeform works by local artist Amber Van Galder, who used recycled aluminum, including motorcycle parts, to create each piece.
- All countertops are poured and polished concrete created by local craftsmen. These are a wonderful example of sustainable products used in the hotel!
