Revitalizing Properties

An impressive range of properties owned and/or operated by Marcus Hotels and Resorts have been rejuvenated or completely renovated.

The historic Grand Geneva Resort & Spa of Lake Geneva, WI was an ambitious restoration project. Originally one of Hugh Hefner's Playboy Resorts, the 30 year old property received a complete renovation, updating the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architecture, modernizing 50,000 square feet of meeting space and three distinctive restaurants. Also updated and improved were two tour-quality golf courses, the Highlands and the Brute. The Grand Geneva Resort was transformed into one of the premier resort, golf and spa destinations in the Midwest and was awarded AAA Four Diamond status.

The beautiful Pfister Hotel is a four star, Four Diamond crown jewel of Milwaukee. Orinally built in 1893, the grandeur of crystal chandeliers and richly appointed rooms faded over the years. In decline and slated to be replaced with a parking lot, Marcus purchased the property and four years later restored the Pfister to its original glory. Today the Pfister Hotel is a national historic landmark.

An Oklahoma City landmark, the Skirvin Hotel was neglected and in need of repair for many years prior to closing in 1988. Now transformed into a modern facility, the Skirvin Hilton retains the elegance and beauty of the past, but updated as a full-service facility and hub of activity within the city. Building a Legacy of Success Marcus Hotels and Resorts' track record of quality and consistency, strategic decision-making, and resolve to succeed sets in action a course to do things right, but also to do the right thing.
