MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) Marshfield’s former Clearwaters Hotel and Convention Center will reopen by early summer with new owners, a new look, and a new name: ‘Hotel Marshfield.”
Steve Wykle is president of “Marshfield Hospitality LLC” and is heading up the “transition team” for the property. Wykle said, “It’s become increasingly clear how much the community really needs the rooms for lodging but also the banquet space for business meeting banquets, and so forth.”
According to Wykle, the hotel will be independent and not part of a chain, reflecting Marshfield in everything from its appearance to its staff, who will be hired from the Marshfield area. The facility is being completely renovated according to Wykle. All 99 guest rooms have been totally “stripped down to the studs,” and the lobby, restaurant, lounge, and pool area are also being totally redesigned.
The property closed due to bankruptcy, and was subsequently purchased May 2012.
