PACKERS FANS HAVE something new to add to their list of things to cheer about this year, and it’s not just quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his arsenal of offensive weapons. Green Bay’s first AAA Four Diamond hotel, Lodge Kohler, is now open—directly across from Lambeau Field and ready to deliver a superior level of amenities alongside Kohler’s well-known hospitality.
Lodge Kohler offers 134 custom guest rooms, 10 suites and unparalleled views of Lambeau Field. Modern furnishings accented by vintage NFL photos add local flavor to the accommodations. Lavish, state-of-the-art Kohler bathrooms feature digital water controls and innovative three-head showers, Ann Sacks tile, and Robern cabinets and mirrors. Choose one of the first-floor suites for an impeccable view of the stadium and everything you need for a luxe tailgate: spacious terraces with lounge and dining furniture, fire pits and gas grills.
The hotel’s classically designed Kohler Waters Spa is nearly one of a kind. Besides Wisconsin, the only others are in Chicago and Scotland, and there are only four of these spas in the world. Meant to be a destination unto itself, the spa features the Hydromassage Experience Pool—a signature feature conceived by Herbert Kohler and built exclusively for Lodge Kohler—and the Kohler Custom Vichy shower massage. Other amenities include a coed hot tub, sauna, steam room and plunge pool, as well as a heated indoor pool and a well-equipped 24-hour fitness room.
Within the property, guests may stave off hunger at two restaurants: Leaps & Bounds Café creates specialty coffees, pastries, lunch and signature snack boards featuring housecrafted spreads and artisanal cheeses as well as wine on tap. Taverne in the Sky treats patrons to panoramic views and an open-style kitchen. Step out on the terrace for gas fireplaces, lounge seating, cigars and a bird’s-eye view of Lambeau Field. A mouthwatering menu elevates typical football-watching fare. (Think dry-rubbed wings, spit-roasted prime rib and warm popovers.) Rooms from $438 per night on game days
