The FirstPathway Partners Investment Project, Downtown Marriott Milwaukee, was recently featured in the Milwaukee business news source, BizTimes. According to the article, with the opening of the new Milwaukee Marriott slated for this July, there will be the added attraction of nearly 10,000 square feet of new event space for the city. It is expected to be utilized not only by corporate events, but also weddings and other social events.
There will be a 5,500 square-foot East Side Ballroom to accommodate up to 360 guests, as well as three 1,000 square-foot meeting spaces, and two 700-square-foot meeting spaces. The space is highly flexible overall, with a contemporary feel, and the Ballroom has the capacity to be divided into three separate spaces through wall partitions.
However, size is not the main focus for the facility, service is. “We’re not focusing on being the largest event facility in the city, but certainly we want to be the one with the most genuine care and quality in service” said Jeff Hess, general manager of the hotel. The Marriott has been designed as a place where people meet and want to convene, and quality service is a key component of that. The new Marriott, a brand with an already established reputation of quality, has booked 11 meetings and events for this summer and continues to receive various other inquiries regarding availability for the event space.
