A new hotel and conference center has opened in Oak Creek near the Ikea store along I-94.
The Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel and Creekside Crossing Conference Center, at 1900 W. Creekside Crossing Circle, are located in the Creekside Crossing Marketplace, adjacent to Ikea's sprawling furniture store and warehouse northwest of I-94 and Drexel Avenue.
Developer and operator of the new extended-stay hotel and meeting and event space, Stand Rock Hospitality began construction last fall on the 3.9-acre site.
The 11,500-acres Creekside Crossing Conference Center includes a pre-function area, grand ballroom that can be separated into four smaller function rooms, private board and meeting rooms, patio, and a restaurant and bar with seasonal outdoor dining available.
The 121-room Homewood Suites hotel offers studio or one-bedroom suites with a fully equipped kitchens, desk areas, and other modern amenities. Additionally, guests can enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast, along with a weekly complimentary evening social.
“We are very excited to be working with the city of Oak Creek to bring about a one-of-a-kind, mixed-use development in this ever expanding and emerging market in the South Shore area,” said Pete Helland, Jr., managing partner for Stand Rock said in a November press release. “The new project will help address the need in the area for a venue offering meeting space for small and mid-sized gatherings and weddings – as well as provide a more upscale, extended stay lodging option.”
Firms that helped to construct the building included JKC Build and Catalyst Construction. Plunkett Raysich Architects served as the project architect.
A grand opening event will be held on Tuesday, but both venues are open and accepting reservations.
