Country Springs will transform into The Ingleside Hotel
The hotel has been owned by Waukesha Hospitality – a division of Minneapolis-based Burwell Enterprises – since February 2017. Burwell also owns The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club in downtown Madison.
The Gettys Group, based in Chicago, will spearhead the hotel's design and rebranding efforts, which will include extensive renovations and remodeling of 194 guest rooms and suites.
Here are renderings of the new room decor:
According to the new Ingleside web site, which is already online, a "reimagined" ballroom (a rendering of which is below) will cover 7,200 square feet and there will be a new restaurant, called Didi's Supper Club, a new lobby coffee shop and more. The Springs Water Park is still featured on the new website.
The hotel will remain open during the transformation and The Country Springs web site is still online.
The old Scots word "ingle" has become an English synonym for fireplace.
"My family always looks to deal with businesses that 'have heart,' that's most certainly the case at Country Springs," said Peter Burwell, CEO of Burwell Enterprises, in a statement. "We look forward to refreshing the property to meet the character level of the people who work here."
SilverTree Hospitality COO Stephen Zanoni, who is also general manager of The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club added, "The property has a strong history and many unique assets, including a first-class location and over 40,000 sq. ft. of meeting space. Our goal is to build on that uniqueness and create a convention, wedding and leisure destination for the entire upper Midwest."
