5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I noticed when I called multiple times prior to our arrival that everyone was really nice and super accommodating. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a glass of sparking wine. From that moment forward, every time you had any exchange with an employee, it was "my pleasure, of course, thank you Mrs Carr, absolutely, have a great day, I'm so... More

Checked in early on a Sunday around 11AM, which was nice. Front office was helpful in finding rooms which was very appreciated. Once checked in, headed to guest room where key did not work. Housekeeper was helpful in commandeering a front office agent to run a key to me then I heard another guest in the same hallway whose key... More

No natural light and needed all the lights on mid day. One chair in the room, one sink in the bath. Rememeber this is Kohler the bath fixture company.... More

Very fine at all turns. We stayed in The Carriage House, huge room, 3rd. floor. I went to the Spa, it was like no other. Dixie, 13th. year at spa, was an angle. It is hard for me to relax, and by the time she was done with my detox massage, with facial and head massage, I could not move,... More

My father's family grew up in the Villiage of Kohler, and worked for the Kohler Company for decades. Besides quality bath fixtures, the American Club was originally part of the housing for Kohler Company workers from Europe. Today, it is a Five Star resort with amazing golf courses. My extended family has lunch at the "Horse and Plow" Bar and... More

Caveat: I stayed here with friends as a get-away/spa trip, not as a golfer. The best part about the Carriage House is that it is adult-only which is perfect when looking for a few days away with friends. The Carriage House is compact because it is the original structure. However they have done a good job of retrofitting the structure... More

Dear cgiessler, Thank you for your review. At the Carriage House every category offers a different bathing and showering experience. Your King bedded room is a Heritage room, and as you note with an open concept shower. Our reservations team can detail out each category and the bathing/showering experience to be sure the experience matches the guest! Some guests like... More

I thought 'southern hospitality' cannot be beat. But, this midwestern city and specifically the club really surprised me. This will remain one of the most memorable business trips I have ever taken. Congrats to the staff and especially the concierge staff!

Playing Whistling Straits golf course would have been terrific but the greens fees did not match our golf games. We'll just watch the PGA Championship next year. We stayed with two days of spa treatments instead of golf. All of our treatments were great. I highly recommend the Hamman Ritual. If you stay at the Carriage House you have the... More

Dear Nailer J, Thank you for your review and recommendation of our spa services. Many guests who stay at the Carriage House enjoy spending the day in their robe and slippers until dinner time! So glad you took advantage of this. The spa does have complete male and female locker rooms for guests who travel from the American Club main... More

If you want a top notch retreat with excellent amenities then this is the place to go. Kohler, Wisc. is not an extremely convenient place to travel but it is about 30 minutes north of Milwaukee. The American Club has great restaurants, fitness center and golf - this is the home of Whristling Straits. The amenities (fitness and golf) are... More

OK, that title is a given. You ARE across the street from the Kohler factory so obviously, all Kohler fixtures. But putting that aside, I was struck by how personable all of the staff is. You are made totally welcomed by everybody. I stayed in the "Carriage House" who's rooms were very comfortable and dark. With tall the world class... More
