Marcus® Hotels & Resorts Celebrates Award-Winning Properties


Four properties receive the distinguished AAA Four Diamond Rating in 2018

Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, a nationally recognized hotel management company and division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS), today announced that four of its owned and managed properties have again received the esteemed AAA Four Diamond Award® in 2018. These awards follow a year of numerous accolades for Marcus Hotels & Resorts’ properties across the nation.

The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee remains one of only 12 hotels in North America that have maintained AAA Four Diamond status since the Diamond Ratings were first introduced in 1976. Other Marcus Hotels & Resorts properties that have received the AAA Four Diamond Award in 2018 include the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, recognized for the 20th consecutive year; the historic Skirvin Hilton in Oklahoma City, recognized for the 11th consecutive year; and the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, the major convention hotel in Milwaukee, recognized for the seventh consecutive year.

“The AAA Four Diamond Awards are a prestigious recognition that clearly demonstrate the decades of excellence at Marcus Hotels & Resorts,” said Greg Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation. “This is a result of the hard work and passion our associates put into ensuring an exceptional experience for each guest at a Marcus Hotels & Resorts property. Congratulations yet again to our AAA Four Diamond properties on this fantastic accomplishment, and congratulations on an excellent year of service to all of our properties, which were well recognized in 2017.”
The Pfister Hotel, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, Skirvin Hilton and Hilton Milwaukee City Center are part of an exclusive group of hotels within North America. Currently, six percent of the nearly 27,000 hotels approved by AAA make the Four Diamond list. Hotels at this level are committed to providing upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, exceptional service and attention to detail.

In addition, five Marcus Hotels & Resorts properties also received high rankings in U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 Best Hotels list. The Pfister Hotel, Hilton Milwaukee City Center and InterContinental Milwaukee all ranked in the top four of downtown Milwaukee hotels, with The Pfister Hotel ranked as number one. The Pfister Hotel and Grand Geneva Resort & Spa were also listed in the top five best Wisconsin hotels, and the Skirvin Hilton was ranked number one in best downtown Oklahoma City hotels. The rankings evaluate more than 3,000 luxury hotels across the United States, the Caribbean, Canada and Mexico and are calculated based on the opinion of travel experts, guest reviews and hotel class ratings.

Along with the early recognitions in 2018, Marcus Hotels & Resorts also ended 2017 on a strong note with the company receiving the 2017 Service Excellence Award by Governor Scott Walker at the Wisconsin Governor’s Conference on Tourism, as well as Smart Meetings magazine’s 2017 Platinum Choice Award.

Four Marcus Restaurant Properties Awarded Wine Spectator Recognition

Marcus Restaurant Group Logo

Marcus® Restaurant Group announced today that four of its premier properties – Mason Street Grill and Milwaukee ChopHouse in Milwaukee; Capitol ChopHouse in Madison, Wis.; and Grey Rock at the Heidel House Resort & Spa in Green Lake, Wis. – have earned a 2017 Wine Spectator award to recognize their respective wine programs.

Mason Street Grill has received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence five years in a row, while Grey Rock has earned the award for its 15th year. In 2017, Capitol ChopHouse and Milwaukee ChopHouse are both receiving the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for the first time.

The Wine Spectator Award of Excellence recognizes fewer than 2,400 restaurants each year, requiring at least 90 wine options and a well-chosen assortment of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the restaurant menu.

“We are proud to have four Marcus restaurants recognized for this prestigious ranking,” said Susan Terry, vice president of food & beverage operations for Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “It reflects the thoughtful selection and high quality of wines that our teams pair with our restaurants’ exceptional cuisine.”

To be considered for a 2017 Wine Spectator Award, each Marcus Restaurant property submitted an application highlighting its particular strengths:

Mason Street Grill – With more than 290 wines available by the glass or bottle, downtown Milwaukee’s Mason Street Grill offers a diverse selection of quality wines from all major wine producing regions throughout the world. The restaurant boasts a strong selection of wines from the western United States – California, Oregon and Washington, and regularly brings in upper-tier and limited-release wines from that region and others.

Milwaukee ChopHouse – Newly recognized this year, the Milwaukee ChopHouse, located inside the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, offers more than 150 wines that complement the restaurant’s selection of quality steaks and entrees. The restaurant also regularly partners with vineyards and wineries across the U.S. to bring unique tasting experiences to guests, locals and visitors alike.

Capitol ChopHouse – Similar to the Milwaukee ChopHouse, the Capitol ChopHouse, located in downtown Madison, Wis. at the Hilton Madison Monona Terrace, earned the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for the first time this year. The restaurant added more than 30 wines to its wine menu, which has a selection of more than 180 wines total. With wines ranging from sparkling whites to Cabernet Sauvignon, the restaurant’s wines pair well with the traditional steak house cuisine that features locally sourced products and seasonal produce.

Grey Rock – Located at the Heidel House Resort & Spa in Green Lake, Wis., Grey Rock has received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence every year since 2002. In a relaxed, lakefront setting, the restaurant offers fine dining with approximately 115 wines available by the glass or bottle and a strong emphasis on California wines. Grey Rock also features two wines from Wisconsin on its menu.

“We care about every guest experience. Since wine can be, and often is, a critical component to the meal, we are continuing to increase our offerings and selection at all of our restaurants,” added Terry. “This recognition proves that the hard work of our restaurant teams is paying off.”

Visit Heidel House Resort & Spa for a weekend of everything beer: Brew Fest to Beer-Themed Spa Services

Green Lake, Wis. – Feb. 27, 2017 – Heidel House Resort & Spa’s annual brew event offers an entire weekend dedicated to celebrating craft beer. Microbrew enthusiasts will have a variety of ever popular craft beers to taste during the annual Brew Fest event taking place Saturday, March 25. In addition to the Brew Fest event, guests can enjoy a lakeside dinner serving up brew-themed specials throughout the weekend at Grey Rock Restaurant or relax and rejuvenate on their beer vacation with a beer-themed bath or pedicure at the resort’s award-winning Evensong Spa.

Heidel House Resort’s 6th Annual Brew Fest

Featuring over 100 different microbrews and over 53 different breweries, Heidel House Resort’s annual craft beer tasting event is one beer enthusiasts would hate to miss. Mix and mingle with brewery representatives as they pour samples of their finest microbrews in souvenir tasting glasses. All participating breweries will be in the running for the 2017 People’s choice award, voted by attendees. The winning brew will be placed on tap at Heidel House Resort for the entire summer season.

Previous favorites such as New Glarus Brewing Co. of New Glarus, Wis., Lakefront Brewery of Milwaukee, Wis. and Titletown Brewing Co. of Green Bay, Wis. will return. Next Door Brewery Co. and Karben4 Brewing, both of Madison, Wis., Ahnapee Brewery of Algoma, Wis., Harpoon Brewery of Boston, Mass., and Metropolitan Brewing from Chicago, Il. are a few of the new additions welcomed to this year’s event.

Advance ticket purchase is recommended. Please call 800.444.2812 to purchase tickets.

Evensong Spa Beer Services

Evensong Spa is once again offering craft beer spa specials in conjunction with Heidel House Resort’s 6th annual Brew Fest. Enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of Wisconsin’s most popular beverage throughout the month of March.

The U.S. has very few spas that offer the benefits of beer services, whose origins stem from the ancient Romans. Beer baths were used to sweat out toxins, exfoliate the skin and infuse vitamins into the body.

The Evensong Spa team has taken it upon itself to diligently research this under-served industry and craft its own beer spa services! Throughout the month of March, these Evensong Spa beer services will be featured:

Renew & Brew Bath Cure – $50: Start with a frothy beer bath, a potent brew of dark ale and mineral water to purify the skin. The beer bubbles perform a subtle massage, tingling as it touches your skin, and then warms and opens up skin pores allowing toxins to escape. The hops function as a purifying agent, exfoliating dry, dull skin. The active beer yeast provides the skin with a wide range of B vitamins, proteins and saccharides while contributing to overall softening and regeneration of the skin. To add to the relaxation experience, enjoy a pint of your favorite New Glarus brew while you soak your stress away!

Evensong Spa’s steam room or waterfall whirlpool soak is the perfect follow-up to this 20-minute treatment.

Hops & Honey Pedicure – $75: Enjoy a warm foot soak with a touch of beer while enjoying a cold one! The natural antibacterial effects clean and sanitize, while yeast enzymes in the beer soften and exfoliate dry skin and callouses, making skin feel absolutely renewed. Guests can sit back and sip a New Glarus beer while their feet and calves are massaged with a lime salt scrub, followed by a super hydrating citrus lotion. Finish with the spa’s divine honey-based moisture serum that seals in moisture and brings rich color back to tired feet.

For both beer-themed spa treatments, guests can choose from New Glarus Spotted Cow, Blacktop, Moon Man and Fat Squirrel.

Guests must be 21 or older to take advantage of these Heidel House Resort & Spa events and services.

Spas of America’s Top 100 Spas of 2016

Spas of America, the No. 1 spa and wellness travel website, today unveiled its annual ranking of the Top 100 Spas of 2016, based on consumer behavior on its website.

“In 2016, we continued to see steady growth in the North American spa and wellness industry, with record visits and increased revenue,” says Spas of America president Craig Oliver. The 2016 International Spa Association U.S. Spa Industry Study, commissioned by the ISPA Foundation and undertaken by PwC International Survey Unit, reported consumers made 179 million visits to spas in the United States, generating an estimated $16.3 billion in revenue.

“North American spa and wellness consumers are continuing to focus on health, exercise and fitness experiences – especially in the outdoors,” says Oliver. “Spa and wellness travel offers people a chance to take a step back, enjoy a slower pace and focus on what is truly important.”

The Top 100 Spas of 2016 includes 66 spas from the United States (including 17 from California), 28 spas from Canada, three from Mexico, two from Brazil and one from Turkey.

Health spas were the most popular spa experience, with 34 spas making the Top 100 Spas of 2016 list. City spas followed with 13; Country, Lake and Mountain with eight; Beach, Casino and Mineral Hot Springs had six spas each, followed by Ocean spas with five.
