Saint Kate, the Downtown arts-themed hotel located at 139 E. Kilbourn Ave., will reopen for overnight reservations starting Thursday, Nov. 5.

The hotel closed back in March due to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in America, eventually reopening its lobby lounge The Bar, art galleries and Proof Pizza restaurant on July 31. The new hotel, replacing the InterContinental Hotel Milwaukee, first opened in spring of 2019. 

“Throughout major moments in our country’s history, the voices and works of contemporary artists have played critical roles in reflecting our nation’s consciousness. We need those voices now more than ever,” said Brandon Drusch, general manager of Saint Kate, in a press release. “We are thrilled to continue welcoming back the thinkers, creators, innovators and seekers who have made Saint Kate special and to offer them an experience like no other.”

To welcome guests back to Saint Kate and to the concept of overnight hotel stays during these strange times, the hotel is offering a special package feature complimentary overnight parking and a $50 food and beverage credit, starting at $194 a night.

Reservations are available now at Saint Kate's website, where you can also find the hotel's CleanCare pledge and COVID precautions – including increased sanitization, masks, enforced social distancing and low-contact interactions.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
