Hilton Milwaukee

The AAA Four Diamond Hilton Milwaukee City Center will serve as the headquarters for the upcoming Democratic National Convention (DNC) in 2020, according to a statement.

In preparation for the DNC next year, Hilton Milwaukee City Center announced a new director of events, Christine Luz, who will oversee all events at the hotel, including assisting the Hilton’s events team with the DNC.

Lunz will join an award-winning meetings and events team at Marcus Hotels & Resorts, which owns and manages the Hilton Milwaukee City Center. The team, consisting of six expert sales managers, collectively brings 40 years of experience to meetings at the Hilton.

“I am excited to join them and bring my dedicated spirit of service and focused attention to detail to our clients’ events,” said Lunz. “Whether preparing for an intimate business meeting or a national, multi-day convention like the upcoming DNC, I look forward to creating inspiring and memorable events of every size, purpose and budget”.

The Hilton Milwaukee City Center, located in the heart of downtown, is Milwaukee’s “conference” hotel. It combines 1920s art deco grandeur with today’s modern conveniences.

The hotel is connected to the Wisconsin Center convention and exposition facility across the street via skyway and has the most meeting and event space of any hotel in Milwaukee – over 34,000 square feet.

The Hilton Milwaukee City Center is home to the city’s only “Canine Concierge,” Millie – a mini-golden-doodle who works in the hotel’s lobby alongside her owner and the hotel’s human concierge, Rusty.

With 729 renovated guest rooms, Hilton Milwaukee can accommodate nearly any group. Its central location means guests are just moments away from the city’s theater district, the lakefront and Summerfest grounds, Fiserv Forum and the city’s new entertainment district, the Deer District, and the Historic Third Ward.

Hilton Milwaukee is located at 509 W. Wisconsin Ave. in downtown Milwaukee. – HotelNewsAsia.com
