The construction of The American Club predates the era of porches, patios and terraces. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel was built in 1919 as pragmatic dormitory-style lodging for the Kohler Company’s immigrant workers. In 1978, the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, which prohibits architectural renovations and additions to its original exterior façade. One of the presidential suites has a step-out balcony for a breath of fresh air, but it doesn’t provide enough room for seating. On the plus side, the heart of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is a stunning courtyard filled with native Wisconsin vegetation, a gazebo, fountain and an ornate stained-glass antique solarium from Lancashire, England, that was converted into the Greenhouse cafe.
None, we are a historic building. Our two presidential suites have a small walk-out balcony, but it’s only to walk and look, not to sit and enjoy.
