Hotel Marshfield is a full-service independent hotel located at 2700 S. Central Ave. It is locally owned by Marshfield Hospitalities, LLC, with redevelopment and management duties assigned to IDM Group, LLC (www.inndevmgmt.com), Madison, Wis. Formerly known as the Clearwaters Hotel, the property is undergoing a massive renovation and, when completed in late summer, will offer some of the finest meeting and banquet space in central Wisconsin, including two ballrooms accommodating up to 500 for a reception which can be further divided into six meeting rooms and pre-event space for receptions and other gatherings. In addition, the landscaped outdoor courtyard with pool is expected to be a popular venue for small special events. The hotel redesign calls for 99 rooms, nine of which will be extended stay suites; a new restaurant and lounge; and fitness center. The interior design is described as modern yet warm with strong graphic statements that draw from Marshfield’s heritage.
Along with being the lead choice in the market for corporate and association meetings, wedding celebrations and special events, Hotel Marshfield will also provide a much-needed full-service experience for hospital and clinic travelers, youth sports groups, family reunions and weekend leisure visitors to the area. Amenities include shuttle service to local businesses, attractions and the Marshfield airport; breakfast included in the overnight rate; and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi. Its south side location near the new Hwy. 10 bypass makes it especially convenient to access.
