A really fantastic hotel. I stayed here for work at a time when they were very busy. All the staff without exception were charming, polite and seemed genuinely happy to help. It’s clearly a very well managed place. The manager himself was happy to roll on our reservation when we were unsure when we would leave. The food was exceptional both in the cafe and the restaurant and reasonably priced too. A top hotel. Thanks very much to everyone.

Words cannot express enough how amazing our wedding turned out to be. From day one the vibe and staff at the stella made everything so humble and easy to work with. Jordyn and Tiffany were so kind and patient with every little detail we asked for! They made our day come together better than we could ever imagine. The food and service was amazing we got texts the next day asking where they could buy the salad dressing. I would recommend them over and over again!

We spent one night at the hotel to make a dinner celebration at the supper club in Kenosha. We found out about the “Ballroom “ listed in TripAdvisor. The setup of this hotel was in a rebuilt ballroom. Very well done. I would love to return and stay there again. We didn’t dine here as our stay was organized to eat at other locations. We are very happy with the service that the staff provided.

We were in Kenosha for a funeral. E booked the Stella on Monday for 2 nights. The funeral dinner was in the Stella Ballroom. Everything was perfect. Special kudos to Ken at the front desk and Emmy the bartender. They were the top for us of all the staff. All service was special and they made us feel like valued guests with every interaction. Scoops the ice cream parlor was also great. It is easy to see why they have won best ice cream for 8 or more consecutive years. I felt completely safe in this neighborhood and walked around day into night without issue. Thank you Stella Hotel and your amazing team.
