ZMC Hotels, LLC, has recently completed construction on a major breakfast room renovation at the AmericInn Ashland in northern Wisconsin, enhancing aesthetics and functionality at the 94-room hotel overlooking Lake Superior at beautiful Chequamegon Bay.
The hotel breakfast room was enlarged and reconfigured, increasing seating capacity from 22 to 66 and creating a walk-out wall of windows that showcases the expansive views of the lake. Bar height and banquette seating were added, along with large screen TVs and striking lake-themed artwork. Dated track lighting was replaced with inset overhead lighting for a brighter, more open feel, and older wall units were replaced with central heating and air for improved guest comfort and efficiency. The serving area also received an inviting makeover with new two-tone cabinetry, contemporary hardware, and updated floor and wall tile. In addition, the prep kitchen for the breakfast room and the kitchen for the onsite pizzeria were relocated to adjacent positions, and the pizzeria kitchen was outfitted with all new appliances and fixtures.
The breakfast room renovation is just one in a series of improvements at the AmericInn Ashland, which features fun, family-friendly amenities like the Shipwreck Pizzeria, an indoor water park, and summertime pedal boat rentals. An expansion of the exercise room is currently under way and the lobby and select guestrooms are also being updated. In 2017, a comprehensive landscaping project at the back of the hotel added a beach area and pathways along the lake.
