Sentry Insurance has announced plans to build a boutique hotel within SentryWorld, the company’s 18-hole golf course facility in Wisconsin.
The golf course is located across the street from Sentry Insurance’s headquarters in Stevens Point, WI. A release said that the planned upscale hotel will be built near the golf course’s 18th fairway and will feature “spacious suites and intimate gathering spaces,” which are ideal for events and gatherings.
The hotel, which is scheduled to open in the spring of 2021, will be designed by Swaback Architects, which helped redesign the SentryWorld complex in 2013.
“Sentry thrives on building relationships and delivering exceptional customer service,” said Sentry Insurance president, chairman of the board and CEO Pete McPartland.
McPartland added that owning and operating a boutique hotel within Sentry’s campus will allow the company to provide its business insurance customers, agents, and brokers “a truly distinctive experience.” To regular visitors of the SentryWorld golf course, the chief executive said that the hotel will provide them with “extraordinary comfort and amenities.”
“The Stevens Point area has a wide variety of accommodations for visitors. Adding a luxury hotel to the mix will serve those seeking that one-of-a-kind experience,” commented Stevens Point Area Convention & Visitors Bureau executive director Sara Brish, who also said that the hotel will help attract more weddings, corporate retreats and tradeshows to the area.
