The completion of the restoration of the Monarch room marks one of the final phases in a multi-million dollar renovation of the hotel’s guestrooms, lobby area, public spaces, fitness center and more. As part of the renovation, several large windows on the east side of the building, which were covered for decades, have been opened to overlook 5th Street and offer a unique view of Wisconsin Avenue and downtown. Openings have also been created to overlook the upper and lower lobbies. The hotel's lobby lounge once housed one of the longest bars in Wisconsin - an ornate, 82-foot-long serpentine bar, reminiscent of the classic, old-school lobby cocktail lounge.
