The Dörr Hotel is scheduled to break ground in Sister Bay, Wisconsin, in 2019. Jaco Management, the developer and management group of The Dörr Hotel, is working with Chicago-based Zimmerman Weintraub Associates (ZWA) as the architect and interior designer of the hotel.

The Dörr Hotel’s design will be inspired by modern Swedish architecture as well as the hotel’s lakeside location. The four-story, 46-room hotel will have an assortment of suites, as well as private balconies with views, and 11 rooms with a private ground level patio with direct access to paths leading down to the bay.

In the design of the property, ZWA will tie “hygge” elements (the Scandinavian concept of home and comfort) with neutral tones balanced by natural wood finishes and richly textured materials that will evoke the feel of the surrounding natural elements.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

There will be a ground-level green courtyard that will blur the boundary of interior and exterior. The hotel will also have a rooftop patio nestled between two guest wings of the hotel with views of Sister Bay and Lake Michigan. The Dörr Hotel’s rooftop will have an outdoor fireplace and may be used for events.
