Nestled in the heart of downtown Kenosha, The Stella Hotel & Ballroom is a historic renovation of a well-known landmark, built in the early 1900's, that was home to the Heritage House Inn and The Kenosha Elks Club. Within minutes of the shores of Lake Michigan, this contemporary, yet classic hotel is the only full-service hotel in downtown Kenosha featuring 80 stunning guest rooms and suites with state-of-the-art amenities.
The hotel offers classic, yet contemporary rooms as well as retro one-bedroom Heritage Suites, accommodations feature rustic furnishings and vintage-style decor. Other amenities include a fitness center, business center, gift and sundry shop, and a rec room with vintage board games. There are three onsite dining options: The 1844 Table & Mash, a vintage, supper-club-inspired restaurant and lounge specializing in fresh local dishes, and a diverse selection of signature cocktails, whiskeys, craft beers, and wine. Café at The Stella, located off the Lobby, serves specialty coffee drinks, smoothies, fresh-baked pastries, breakfast, lunch, and more. In the summer season, Crow’s Nest Rooftop Bar offers a unique rooftop bar experience with views of downtown Kenosha and Lake Michigan, signature cocktails, live entertainment, cozy fire pits, and views of outstanding sunsets.
The Stella Hotel & Ballroom is the ideal destination for corporate meetings, social events, weddings, and more with over 8,000 square feet of flexible event space. Event space includes five flexible event rooms ideal for groups of any size from 10 to 250. Settings vary from our spacious two-story ballroom featuring dramatic 20’ high ceilings, large, picturesque windows, an outdoor balcony, and a private bar, to our intimate Pettit Boardroom for sixteen.
The hotel is located in downtown Kenosha, just steps away from museums, boutique shops, restaurants, breweries, entertainment venues, and public art. Downtown Kenosha’s lakefront on the shores of Lake Michigan features tons of scenic trails to bike, hike, and ski, as well as opportunities for fishing, sailing, boating, kayaking, swimming, and many other ways to get out on the water.
This is a gret boutique hotel. The atmosphere is at once sophisticated and whimsical, classical and modern. The juxtapositions work well. The room was clean and well appointed for the business traveler. It had both an iron that was actually nice and worked well and a hair dryer that didn't look like it was fished out of a rummage sale table, so aside from the pleasing aesthetics, the room actually functioned very well. I would recommend this to anyone needing accommodations in the area.

This is our second time staying here. Great spot within walking distance to downtown shops and Lake Michigan just under a mile away.
My wife and I stayed here one night over Christmas holiday. It is located in downtown Kenosha it is walking distance to two breweris and numerous restaurants. Kinda retro urban rooms with nice amenities. Comfortable bed and pillows. We enjoyed our brief stay and will return on future trips to Kenosha.

I like everything about this hotel! Staff was excellent, clean room, great downtown location and very reasonable price. Such a relazing experience, so much better than staying at any other hotel that all look alike.
