New hotel planned in Sheboygan

Last updated on May 13th, 2019 at 02:41 pm

St. Augusta, Minn.-based GrandStay Residential Suites plans to build a 72-room hotel in Sheboygan’s South Pier District near the Blue Harbor Resort and Conference Center.

The South Pier District, a former brownfield located between the Sheboygan River and Lake Michigan, is being redeveloped by the city. It was once owned by C. Reiss Coal Co., which stored large piles of coal there years ago.

GrandStay is a small chain of extended-stay hotels with additional locations in Ames, Iowa; Mankato, Minn.; Eau Claire; La Crosse; Madison; and Oxnard, Calif. The company is negotiating a lease for the property from the city and plans to open the hotel in Sheboygan next year.

The hotel could provide a boost to the Kohler Co.’s efforts to bring the Ryder Cup golf tournament to Whistling Straits in 2020. The PGA of America has granted the tournament to Whistling Straits, located along Lake Michigan just north of Sheboygan, on the condition that an additional 1,600 "quality hotel rooms" are built within a 40-mile radius of the golf course by the end of 2014, according to Kohler Co.
