Renaissance Milwaukee West, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin
The first Renaissance hotel in the state opened in August, with 9,864 sq. ft. of event space, just minutes from downtown Milwaukee. The property offers 196 guest rooms, a divisible ball room and a top-floor event space with floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic landscape views. Designed with a “seamstress and tailor” concept in mind, the hotel plays off masculine and feminine properties with textiles and craft-inspired modern furniture.
The property recently reopened after a renovation that introduced a new beach club, private plunge-pool suites, an adults-only infinity pool and elevated dining concepts. The resort has 264 rooms on one of the Baja city’s only swimmer-friendly beaches. That beach also hosts Enclave, a new club with a rum-centric bar, four private cliffside bungalows, eight oceanfront cabanas and sunken fire pits. Talavera, one of the property’s six dining concepts, features an open-air kitchen turning out homemade dishes with ingredients solely from local purveyors.
