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.

Seven Deadly Sins New Years Eve Party

Treat yourself to a little tasteful indulgence before you start rolling out those resolutions. Close out the year at CLEAR for our Seven Deadly Sins New Year’s Eve Party, featuring live music from Alyce Hart. Enjoy great drink specials on seven sinful cocktails. It’s a classy gathering of guilty pleasures. DRINKS Greed: The best things in life are free, but you can give them to the birds and bees – I want money. This rich blend of Hennessy, Makers Mark and OJ will make you feel like the Wolf of Wall Street. Lust: Satiate that longing desire with something sweet and sticky. A fragrant concoction of Southern Comfort, Cherry Herring and Dolin Rogue to get everyone’s hearts pumping. Sloth: Looking for something to lose inhibitions? A traditional Blind Russian will do the job nicely. Belvedere Vodka, Kahlua and Baileys combine to make a drink that will slow down any man. Pride: Keep yourself among the elite with this refined and elegant Fizz with a twist. Crater Lake Gin, St. Germain and Nino Franco Prosecco finished with a lemon twist. Gluttony: Over indulge in this creation of pure decadence. Godiva Chocolate, Frangelico, Kringle Cream and Tuaca, all topped with a wicked serving of whipped cream and a sprinkle nutmeg to push it over the top. Envy: Green with envy, this Wicked Martini will bring out a whole new side of you. Start with Effen Cucumber Vodka, add a splash of Grand Marnier, throw in some Veev Acai liqueur and you have the perfect potion to match your mood. Wrath: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned - unless it’s a Tequila hangover. See if you can handle the wrath of this Margarita: Demetrio Tequila, Cointreau and Grand Marnier.
