(April 3, 2018, MILWAUKEE, Wis.) – As Janko Hospitality, a Chicago-based operator of upscale, select- and full-service hotels, prepares to open the new Hyatt Place Milwaukee/Downtown, the company has added General Manager Tony Beer to its team.
As General Manager, Beer is responsible for hiring and managing associates, overseeing operations and ensuring guests enjoy their experience at Hyatt Place Milwaukee/Downtown.

The hotel’s intimate Coffee to Cocktails Bar and inviting patio will be open to guests and to the public, and features a VIP view of the brand new arena along with a full menu of soups, sandwiches, bar bites, and more.
“Every day is a new, fast-paced adventure, and I’m excited to contribute to the growth of downtown Milwaukee as general manager of the new Hyatt Place hotel,” said Beer. “Plus, the view of the new Bucks’ arena from our bar area makes it all the more exciting!”
The 150-room hotel features contemporary design, advanced technology and 1,721 square feet of flexible meeting space, and its prime location make it the perfect spot for leisure and business travelers.
