The Pfister Hotel has announced that it will be temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Milwaukee landmark was the last major hotel downtown to remain open before the decision on Tuesday, according to our partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal.

The Pfister Hotel general manager Tim Smith said the welfare of hotel employees was the top reason for the closure.

Other area hotels such as Saint Kate - The Arts Hotel, Hilton Milwaukee City Center, Milwaukee Marriott Downtown, the Westin Milwaukee and The Kimpton Journeyman Hotel in the 3rd Ward all made decisions to close in late March and early April for similar reasons.
