Description [edit]
Style. Progress. Intrigue. Those are the three themes that the InterContinental Milwaukee Hotel staff wants people to keep in mind when they step into Marcus Corporation's Downtown property.

The facility, which recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and transformation from the Wyndham to the InterContinental, blends a sense of European style with Las Vegas trendy and New York chic, wrapping all three into one package in the heart of Downtown Milwaukee.

The 221 guest rooms have an upscale, Euro vibe. Think of the furnishings as a high-class, Fifth Avenue form of Ikea. Straight, functional lines and low-profile furniture fill the rooms and give a contemporary and sophisticated feel.

While the hotel is only 10 stories tall, the corner rooms have an interesting view of City Hall, Water Street and the Marcus Center that are surprisingly appealing at night.

The dining and entertainment options lend credence to InterContinental's desire to be a destination in and of its own. C L E A R, the lobby bar is an open-concept lounge that includes part of the lobby, as opposed to the standard concept of a separate enclave.

Kil@wat is the hotel's restaurant. Already, it's received favorable reviews and builds on the hotel's three main themes. It was designed to be classy enough for a formal dinner, laid-back enough to be a post-show dining option and sophisticated enough for a meal with friends.

To cap off the experience, the Zenden nightclub brings the atmosphere of a Vegas club to Water Street.
