Oshkosh has its first look inside the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel

After undergoing a 15-month, $16 million restoration, the Oshkosh Premiere Waterfront Hotel & Convention Center had its grand opening Thursday morning with a ribbon cutting, comments from officials and public tours.

The downtown Oshkosh hotel opens under local management and a unique ownership partnership between private investors and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Foundation, but the rebirth of the 1986 hotel, which had fallen into severe disrepair after years of neglect, was no sure bet.

Oshkosh Northwestern Media has been covering the story from the start. Check out this archive of stories, photos and videos to follow the hotel on its journey back to being the crown-jewel of the downtown Oshkosh renaissance.
