The Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel and Convention Center, formerly the City Center Hotel, is now open following a $12 million overhaul that includes a skywalk to the convention center. Guests will enjoy 176 beautifully appointed river-view hotel rooms with upgraded amenities including microwaves, refrigerators and 42” flat screen HDTVs. They can also enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast before attending their meetings, free wireless Internet and a business center conveniently located in the lobby. It is the only hotel in the area located on the water complete with docks to provide access to the Fox River and Lake Winnebago. Named a Best Western “premier” property (one of just 25 worldwide) for its upscale décor and plush amenities, attendees are sure to be impressed by this brand new space.
When your convention day is done, guests can dine at the on-site, waterfront restaurant, Ground Round at River’s Edge. After dinner, conventioneers can relax in the indoor pool and hot tub, enjoy an invigorating workout in the fitness center or take a leisurely stroll through Oshkosh’s vibrant downtown. Guests will surely want to stay a few extra days to ensure enough time to take in the city’s museums, art center, opera house, zoo and shopping centers.
The renovation created many hospitality jobs in the area and set the stage for a new era of downtown rejuvenation. The top-tier hotel and convention center combination will bring thousands more people to downtown Oshkosh every week, supporting retail stores, restaurants, museums and galleries at a level never possible before the renovation. The full-service hotel and convention center is even benefiting the neighboring University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, providing new life and possibilities for academic conferences.
