We stayed here on an overnight roadtrip down the Mississippi - we called last minute and they were very obliging! The proprietor is fantastic - tons of energy and lots of great stories about the history of the hotel and the town. Our room was actually a suite, beautifully decorated, with a full kitchen and lovely sitting area. It was a great place to spend the night, and Alma is incredibly charming! The only detractor was the trains that come through at all hours of the night, but that's not the hotel's fault... and you can hear the trains from anywhere in town, so I have a feeling that any hotel would be like this. Just bring earplugs! :)
It really is a great place to stay - be sure to visit their coffee/ice cream shop with the gorgeous gardens in the back.

- The Hotel de Ville is located in four historic buildings in the heart of Alma Wisconsin which is listed on the National Historical Register. The hotel itself is on the National Historic Register as well. The suites and rooms are appointed in period antiques - each is unique and some have multiple bedrooms. They are all unique are the finest in this part of the State and Western Wisconsin. Our guests love our French formal and Italianate gardens (featured on TV and many magazines) as much as they love our pillow top queen or king mattresses. All Suites have air conditioning which is not the norm in Alma. The stunning Empire Room restaurant is on site and is a destination in itself. Hotel guests are always first in line for reservations. You can enjoy a beer or cocktail on our patio. We look forward to meeting you! ... more less
