MERRILLVILLE, Ind., Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --  White Lodging is pleased to announce it will once again partner with Milwaukee-based Jackson Street Holdings, LLC  to manage the 155-suite SpringHill Suites Milwaukee Downtown. Located at the corner of 4th and Wells streets, the SpringHill Suites Milwaukee Downtown, which is scheduled to open in Spring 2016, will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by JSWD Commerce, LLC, an affiliate of Jackson Street Holdings and managed by White Lodging Services.

The SpringHill Suites Milwaukee Downtown is located at 744 N. 4th St, and will occupy a converted historic office building built in 1928, known as the Commerce Building. Located in the heart of downtown across the street from Milwaukee's convention center, the Wisconsin Center, the hotel offers guests convenient access from the Historic Third Ward district, the shores of Lake Michigan, and the Milwaukee River Walk. The hotel will be the first new hotel to be connected to the Wisconsin Center in 15 years.

"This will be Jackson Street Holdings' third hotel in the city and their second historic preservation," said Chris Anderson, White Lodging Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer. "They are truly changing the landscape of Milwaukee. When you bring award-winning developers, architects and management together, great things happen."

White Lodging currently manages the Milwaukee Marriott Downtown, also owned by Jackson Street Holdings, LLC.

"We are excited to once again partner with Jackson Street Holdings on this new hotel that will be a key addition for convention attendees and business travelers with its indoor connection to the Center, offering guests the city's newest suites in a unique historic building," Anderson said. "This hotel will also be the only hotel connected to the Wisconsin Center that offers free Wi-Fi, complimentary hot breakfast and all-suite guest rooms."

The hotel will open under the leadership of General Manager Michael Aftanski. A graduate of Arizona State University, Aftanski has more than 15 years of hospitality experience. Most recently, he was the general manager of the Hilton Garden Inn Scottsdale.

"I am very excited to be working with the Jackson Street Holdings, LLC team to bring the SpringHill Suites brand to the downtown Milwaukee market," Aftanski said. "Milwaukee is such a wonderful, vibrant city, and I can't wait for our guests to experience the hotel."
