White Lodging Services Corp. will partner will Jackson Street Holdings, LLC to manage the new SpringHill Suites hotel in downtown Milwaukee.
The 155-suite SpringHill Suites, located at the corner of 4th and Wells streets, is scheduled to open spring 2016.
It will have 2,000 square feet of meeting space and a restaurant, according to the firm’s website. In December, Jackson Street Holdings purchased the six-story, 92,255-square-foot office building and a two-story parking structure, both built in 1927, from Zilber Ltd. for $4.5 million, according to state records. The building is located across the street from the Wisconsin Center and is connected to the facility via skywalk.
The hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by JSWD Commerce, LLC, an affiliate of Jackson Street Holdings.
The Merrillville, Ind.-based White Lodging announced the agreement with Jackson Street Holdings on its website.
White Lodging also manages the Marriott Downtown hotel at 323 E. Wisconsin Ave., which opened in 2013.
Bryan Hayes, chief operating officer of White Lodging’s select service hotels, said the company looks forward to the partnership and welcoming guests and locals to the new property.
“Milwaukee is a city with a strong attachment to its history, and we believe the SpringHill Suites Milwaukee Downtown will honor its historical setting in the Commerce building,” Hayes said.
