Marriott Hotel Opens Next Week
And our photos capture what the new era will look like.
Originally scheduled to open in July 2013, the new Milwaukee Marriott Downtown is opening ahead of schedule. It opens on June 26th, 2013 to be exact, just in time for Summerfest. The hotel, located near the corner of Milwaukee St. and Wisconsin Ave., has brought a dramatic change to the East Town commercial district. Gone are many historic structures, but in their place is a fresh new hotel with a splash of preservation, a new restaurant called Millioke featuring local products, and a Starbucks for those looking for their corporate coffee fix. On Wednesday the building will begin a new history.
