Oshkosh hotel owners offer sneak peek into renovated hotel

The Oshkosh Premier Waterfront Hotel and Ground Round restaurant will both open in late April.

On Tuesday, partners in the $16 million project led a tour of the progress made to date, showcasing prototype rooms, changes to the Ground Round restaurant and bar, expanded common areas and renovated banquet and meeting rooms.

About the only thing demolition didn't touch was the brick exterior of the building, the hotel's Operating Partner Rich Batley said. The rooms have been entirely reconstructed and furnishings will start to be moved into the property in the coming weeks. The building's mechanical systems were also fully upgraded.

"It's a new property. Everything has been replaced," Batley said. "It's nice to see the finishing touches coming into place."

Hoffman Planning Design and Construction Inc. Project Manager Todd Wunderlich said the 15-month project has been a challenging one that involved "a lot of investigation and dissecting the building to determine what to keep and what to replace."

Once it opens, Batley said he expects the hotel will employ about 200 people. He said several small conferences and more than 40 weddings have already been booked at the hotel and attached Oshkosh Convention Center for 2013, and some conventions have already been booked for 2014.
