Big Plans For The Retlaw

There are some lofty expectations for the renovation of the Retlaw Hotel. Dennis Doucette will manage the hotel in downtown Fond du Lac. He says they are planning many improvements with the $23 million project. Doucette has 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry, 19 of them as the manager for the Biltmore Hotel in Miami. He says one of their restaurants will serve food that is good, but affordable. He says they want it to be more than just a place you bring someone for dinner on a special occasion. He says they are also planning on a game lounge and sports bar known as the Player’s Club, which will serve gourmet burgers. He says one of the things they had at the Biltmore, and plan to do here is a resort membership, which entitles members to special perks. He says the Retlaw will also have a luxury spa, catering and other features. If everything works out they will open in June of next year.
