Wausau - a place where nothing ever really happened and nobody really famous ever came from. However, Wausau is where the Northwoods begins so you may need to stay there sometime. The Plaza is not as bad as the reviews indicate, but if you are looking for something halfway modern, this ain't it.
I stayed here for a conference on June 19, 2013. My room was large but other than the bathroom, it obviously hadn't been remodeled since it's heyday back in the 80s, or 70s, or perhaps the 60s. Nor was the bed particularly comfortable.
Although the hotel was extremely tired looking, it did have a sort of kitschy charm to it. The rooms all had large windows next to the door in the style you would find at a 1950s motel. Except instead of looking out onto a parking lot, the window look out into an inner courtyard with an indoor pool that had a large frog in it. Bizarro. On top of that, the conference rooms all had numerous cheap looking crystal chandeliers.
As I mentioned, the place wasn't as horrifying as some of the other reviews paint it. But then again, even Eloise's pet turtle, Skipperdee, probably wouldn't stay here a second time.
