Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, a nationally recognized hotel owner and management company and division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS), today announced that four of its owned and/or managed properties were again recognized as top hotels in Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards.
Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel, located in Milwaukee, and reopening on November 5, 2020, was recognized as the #6 Top Hotel in the Midwest by Condé Nast Traveler readers. Just over one year old, Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel opened its doors in 2019 to wide acclaim. Shortly after opening, Saint Kate was named Top 10 Best New Hotel by USA Today. Saint Kate celebrates all forms of expression and the entire creative process. Guests will find four gallery spaces filled with contemporary art and an 80-seat black box theatre with regularly programmed events. Food and beverage are a feature with two bars including Giggly, Milwaukee’s only Champagne Bar, and three restaurants featuring The Dark Room, an intimate indulgence not to be missed. Each carefully crafted guestroom features the work of multiple artist collaborators from Milwaukee. Alternatively, guests may select a Canvas Room as a fully immersive art experience where a percentage of each night’s charge for the room is donated to support art organizations throughout the city. Marcus Hotels & Resorts created Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel for travelers looking for an experience to remember.
Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, located in Lake Geneva, Wis., was recognized as the #20 Top Resorts in the Midwest and West by readers and the only Wisconsin resort to make the list. This all-seasons premier resort is situated on 1,300 acres in the beautiful woodlands of Lake Geneva. The resort features a variety of lodging options for a unique getaway, including 355 gorgeous guestrooms and 29 luxury villas offering spacious living areas, full kitchens, and furnished outdoor seating areas. This award-winning Midwest resort is known for its two championship golf courses in the summer and Mountain Top downhill ski hill in the winter, as well as its full-service WELL Spa & Salon and an array of fine dining options. This is the fourth consecutive year the property has been named a Top Resort in the Midwest by Condé Nast Traveler readers.
The Garland, located in North Hollywood, Calif., was recognized by readers as the #14 Top Hotel in Los Angeles. Built in 1970 by Hollywood actress Beverly Garland and her husband, real estate developer Fillmore Crank, this sophisticated boutique hotel allows guests to relax and unwind in a secluded urban paradise that is only minutes from the excitement and thrills of LA. Managed by Marcus Hotels & Resorts and now owned by the second generation of the Crank family and under the direction of the youngest son, James Crank, the glamorous hotel was recently reimagined and renovated with fashionable décor, a stylish restaurant showcasing the diversity of LA’s food scene and newly manicured outdoor spaces on seven tree-shaded acres. This is the sixth consecutive year the re-positioned hotel has been named a Top Hotel in LA by Condé Nast Traveler readers since its rebirth in 2015.
