Last night was my (conservatively) 10th visit to this American landmark. I can't believe that I'm writing a disparaging review about one of my favorite hotels in the world. We arrived around 8 PM at this resort which features the amazing bathroom fixtures and showers and bathtubs of the world renowned Kohler Corporation only to be greeted by a complete... More

I booked a hotel room plus it included the food packages. OUTSTANDING value. The Italian Restaurant food was as good as Italy food and you can have whatever you want. I was shocked because one of the appetizers was close to $40. No matter, I could still choose it as my appetizer. The breakfast, you can have as much as... More

Valentine's Day spa weekend. So obviously the only people that seem to write a review are the unhappy ones and people who were over joyed. Well, I am unhappy.

We were given a night at the American Club as a Christmas gift, being in Chicago its an easy 2 1/2 hour trip to Kohler. We decided to make a go of the thing and booked ourselves some services at the water spa prior to checking in on Saturday. Though we were initially dismayed at having to book two services... More

After reading extensively of the luxury and grandeur at the American Club, I had to go check it out for myself. The property, amenities, grounds, and operations blew my expectations out of the water.

Just got back from a fabulous stay in the Carriage house, which my husband booked for my birthday. The staff was amazing & the room was fabulous. We loved the added bonuses, like afternoon tea and the appetizers/drinks from 5-7. The spa was really great. This was booked this quite a while ago, so I didn't book a service but... More

We had an opportunity to take a weekend trip for my wife's birthday. Living in Milwaukee, we'd gone south to some great hotels in Chicago but decided to stay local this time and try out The American Club. We stayed in an Immersion Suite in The Carriage House per a recommendation. Honestly, the stay left a lot to be desired.... More

We loved the Bellman - who are dressed to impress in their garb including top hats. Check in was a breeze and the front desk escorted us to our room. A nice touch as it can be a little confusing to navigate at first. If you have mobility issues mention that because there are a lot of 1/2 flights of... More
