This historic boutique hotel offers a hometown feel in the heart of Waukesha.
Located about a half-hour west of Milwaukee, Waukesha is a small city with big-time charm. Candy-colored buildings in a quaint downtown act as a backdrop to yearlong festivities, while historic buildings line either side of the meandering Fox River. "Fridays during the summer, the downtown streets are closed to auto traffic and residents roam leisurely while the music of local bands fills the air," said CNN Money, which named Waukesha one of the best small cities in the US.
Encompassing four historic buildings in downtown Waukesha, The Clarke Hotel is a boutique property that blends its reverence for the town's past with the warmth and style of a modern retreat. In the public spaces, traditional furniture is updated with bold colors and patterns (think striped chairs and bright couches), while the rooms maintain a calmer appearance.
Seeing as the hotel is positioned on the Five Points junction connecting downtown Waukesha's main streets, a walk to the area's entertainment is sure to be fun. Freshen up in a bathroom that features granite countertops and a spa shower before you go, and the six pillows and Italian linens on your king-size bed will still be there when you return.
