White Lodging to manage new Milwaukee SpringHill Suites

White Lodging is partnering with Milwaukee-based Jackson Street Holdings to manage the 155-suite SpringHill Suites Milwaukee Downtown. Located at the corner of 4th and Wells streets, the SpringHill Suites Milwaukee Downtown, which is scheduled to open in spring 2016, will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by JSWD Commerce, an affiliate of Jackson Street Holdings and managed by White Lodging Services.

The SpringHill Suites Milwaukee Downtown is located at 744 N. 4th St, and will occupy a converted historic office building built in 1928, known as the Commerce Building. Located downtown across the street from Milwaukee's convention center, the Wisconsin Center, the hotel offers guests access from the Historic Third Ward district, the shores of Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee River Walk. The property will be the first new hotel to be connected to the Wisconsin Center in 15 years.
