The new 19-story, 381-room hotel at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino integrates traditional Milwaukee architecture and modern design, represents the area’s culture and geography, and offers subtle nods to the history of the Forest County Potawatomi Tribe.

The materials and color of the hotel’s base reflect the character of the industrial buildings throughout Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley, as well as the existing casino. Reflecting the modern entertainment offered within the expanded resort, the tower rises from its masonry base adorned in a combination of green-tinted transparent and opaque glass to take on the look of Lake Michigan’s shimmery waves on a sunny day. A “floating” prow-like roofline houses several suites, and a modern glass enclosed “flame” at the top of the hotel references the Forest County Potawatomi’s role as “Keepers of the Fire.”
