One of the extended-stay hotel chains that have been frequently rejected in attempts to open its first Wisconsin location is once again willing to establish its outlet and this time at the Milwaukee’s far northwest side.
A four-story, 122-room WoodSpring Suites is being proposed for the southeast corner of West Bradley Road and North 124th Street. This proposal however will need approval from the Common Council. And since the previous requests were rejected, the council will have to follow new license application norms for a WoodSpring at 1701 W. Layton Ave., on Milwaukee’s far south side.
The license was rejected in 2018 after then-Ald. Terry Witkowski, whose district included the development site, and nearby homeowners objected. Witkowski, at a 2017 Plan Commission meeting, said WoodSpring “does not have a great reputation” and has been turned away in other Milwaukee-area communities.
