Jet-setting Chelsea has been everywhere- and she’s got the frequent-flyer miles to prove it! This Texas native who now calls San Francisco her home was recently in Milwaukee on business. When in the Brew City, this seasoned traveler always opts to stay at The Pfister Hotel, particularly in winter. She loves the magic of a Midwestern Christmas, and, for her, there is no better place to steep in the spirit of the season than the hotel.
The soaring 18 foot Christmas tree in the lobby, the crackling fireplace, and the garland and baubles which festoon the walkways all work to put her in a festive mood. With signs of the season all around her, from the holiday goodies in the Café to the merry music that can be heard throughout the hotel, before long, she is aglow with Christmas spirit.
Unaccustomed to cold weather, she finds there is no cozier spot in the city to warm up after a trip into the frosty winter air than in front of the fireplace in the Lobby Lounge. Years ago, she got a taste of how brutal a Midwestern winter could be when she experienced her first polar vortex in Milwaukee. Stunned by the intense cold, she wanted nothing more than to stay indoors and remain as warm as possible, and the Lobby Lounge was the ideal place to do that. Recounting long evenings lazing by the fire, she recalled it was there that she had her first sips of spiced glogg, a quaff that has since become part of her new holiday tradition. With a bit of bashfulness, the movie-lover confessed that another reason she loves the fireplace so is that it reminds her of the one seen in Harry Potter’s magical alma mater, Hogwarts.
As she moves through the hotel, the twinkling lights and sparkling bows all work to make her feels as if she’s been transported into a Hallmark Christmas film. During this visit, the hotel was able to provide everything she needs to make for a magical holiday setting, except for the dusting of snow required to complete this picture-perfect scene.
Come back soon, Chelsea. It is certain to snow any day now- and when it does, they’ll be a spot in front of the fireplace waiting for you.
