The Country Springs Hotel will emerge as The Ingleside Hotel in spring of 2018 following an extensive renovation. Chicago-based hotel design firm The Getty’s Group, is leading the charge on the design and rebrand.
The word “ingle” is a synonym for fireplace, so the name literally means “by the fireplace.” The term reflects the warmth and comfort the design will encompass. The renovations will start with all ballrooms and meeting space, the lobby with a new coffee shop, all guest rooms, then the food and beverage outlets and the courtyard. During the renovation, the hotel will remain open and functioning.
Stephen Zanoni, COO of SilverTree Hospitality, a division of Burwell Enterprises, and the General Manager of The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor’s Club says, “The property has a strong history and many unique assets, including a first-class location and over 40,000 sq. ft. of meeting space. Our goal is to build on that uniqueness and create a convention, wedding and leisure destination for the entire upper Midwest.”
Peter Burwell, CEO of Burwell Enterprises, appreciates the incredible long-term employees and family atmosphere of the hotel; the entire staff was hired back after the purchase. “My family always looks to deal with businesses that ‘have heart,’ that’s most certainly the case at Country Springs. We look forward to refreshing the property to meet the character level of the people who work here.”
