The Westin Hotel Downtown Milwaukee is a 220-room hotel located immediately south of the U.S. Bank Center. The construction of the Firstar Center, as it was then known, planned for a second tower to the south. The 2010 rebuilding of the parking garage still preserved that space, moving the rebuilt garage further south.

The hotel is connected to the U.S. Bank Center by the galleria level.

The hotel was developed by Jackson Street Management. Prior to the Westin, firm recently completed the 205-room Milwaukee Marriott Downtown and SpringHill Suites Marriott.

Design work on the hotel was led by Doug Nysse, with Kahler Slater serving as the project architect.

The hotel was subject to a lawsuit involving Irgens Development Partners and their adjacent 833 East office tower. That suit was dropped after a week.
