Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, a nationally recognized owner and management company and division of The Marcus Corporation, is pleased to announce the renovation and redesign of Grand Geneva® Resort & Spa’s 358 guest rooms. After an extensive 6-month renovation, the newly transformed guest rooms and suites feature a warm contemporary design, which complements the AAA Four-Diamond property’s serene woodland and lakeside setting.

The redesign of Grand Geneva’s guest rooms is the third major investment over the last few years in a series of extensive renovations for the 1,300 acre, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin resort. A public area renovation was completed in spring 2021, which included a reinvention of the resort’s lobby and lobby lounge plus the launch of its 60-seat outdoor dining venue, The Landing.  Last summer, all guest room bathrooms received full renovations. In the coming months, the resort is planning a series of renovations to its meeting and event spaces.

“The continued investment and improvements to Grand Geneva Resort & Spa and the Marcus Hotels & Resorts portfolio ensure that travelers will enjoy these properties for generations to come,” shared Michael Evans, president of Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “Grand Geneva’s newly transformed rooms add another level of contemporary luxury, as we continue to enhance our guests’ award-winning hospitality experience while celebrating this beloved Lake Geneva resort.”

From spacious suites featuring fireplaces, dining areas and expansive patios, to rooms with private balconies and peaceful nature and lake views, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa offers a variety of redesigned room styles to accommodate guest preferences and requirements at the all-season resort.

“Thoughtful planning and considerate attention to detail go into everything we do here at Grand Geneva – especially our renovation projects,” said Skip Harless, managing director, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa. “Each room has been completely reimagined from floor to ceiling with a palette of neutral colors and natural woods. New modern residential finishes, furnishings, and specially curated artwork by Midwestern designers welcome guests to a timeless, inviting space where they can take advantage of all of the amenities and services Grand Geneva is known for.”

Guests and visitors may now enjoy these upgrades as well as resort offerings and programming, award-winning restaurants featuring new seasonal menus, two championship golf courses, a WELL Spa + Salon, and more. Beginning this month, all guests will enjoy the newly redesigned rooms. The renovation of the resort’s entire collection of 358 guest rooms will be complete by Memorial Day weekend.
