Located in the heart of Downtown Kenosha, The Stella Hotel & Ballroom is a premier hotel and event location in the former transformed Heritage House and Elk’s Club building. The building sits on the National Register of Historic Places.

Within blocks of beautiful Lake Michigan, The Stella offers 80 hip and comfortable guest rooms and more than 7,000 square feet of meeting space, most notably, the two-story elegant ballroom featuring wonderful natural lighting.  The hotel also offers separate meeting rooms. The hotel and ballroom is an ideal choice for weddings, meetings, reunions, and special events. The ballroom is able to accommodate up to 300 people very comfortably.

The 1844 Table & Mash is the hotel’s main restaurant, paying homage to the old Wisconsin supper clubs, but with a twist. The 1844 features a diverse selection of whiskeys, signature handcrafted cocktails, and a showcase of domestic and craft beers in addition to dinner entrees, sandwiches, soups and salads and appetizers.

The Stella also features a seasonal rooftop bar, called The Crow’s Nest, perfect for those perfectly warm Wisconsin summer nights. Share a relaxing afternoon atop the Stella with friends sipping an ice-cold beer or wind down in the evening with live music to lead the way. The beautiful views of Downtown Kenosha and Lake Michigan will keep you coming back again and again.
