Property Description

Settle into a spacious guestroom at the Hotel Mead & Conference Center – the only full-service hotel in the Wisconsin Rapids area. This is where friendly, intuitive service meets exceptional value for both leisure and business travelers. Each of our 154 comfortable rooms and suites blend contemporary décor with the classic charm of a historic hotel. Check in at the office using our free high-speed wireless Internet access or sink into a bubbling whirlpool, available in select suites. And no matter what type of room you choose, you’ll always enjoy the warm and welcoming ambience found in all of our accommodations. Savor a taste of Southern Italy in our Café Mulino, which serves enticing calzones, pastas and homemade pizzas. And when the day winds down, drop by for a drink at our relaxing Grand Avenue Tavern. Feeling sluggish? Swim a few laps in our indoor swimming pool or grab an energizing workout at the fitness area. Visit our business center to tackle last-minute projects while the kids keep busy in the game room. Meetings are made easy at the Hotel Mead & Conference Center. We offer 11 stylish rooms spanning 16,000 square feet of versatile space. Host a convention for up to 450 people or plan a private meeting in one of our smaller venues. You’ll also discover two enchanting ballrooms, ideal for elegant wedding receptions. Perfectly located in central Wisconsin, Hotel Mead is mere steps from the stunning Wisconsin River and the City of Wisconsin Rapids’ downtown core. You’ll be a short drive away from the region’s top attractions: cheese factories, cranberry bogs and an array of spectacular golf courses. Reserve a room at the Hotel Mead and discover what makes us different.
