- The Delafield Hotel has been sold to Hendricks
Commercial Properties for $2.5 million, Hendricks
President and CEO Rob Gerbitz confirmed.
“Our immediate plans are more operational in terms of
management and operational procedures. We have promoted
Erin McDonald from sales and catering director to
general manger. We are very excited about Erin and the
rest of the staff joining our team and taking the
Delafield Hotel to the next level,” Gerbitz said.
“We are simultaneously working with our interior
designer on interior common area updates and an overall
refreshing of the space. We will also be doing some
exterior updates as well.”
Prior to the sale, the hotel’s previous owners, 616
Hospitality Group, had to pay off the $4.4 million owed
to Ixonia Bank, as well as about $113,000 in back taxes.
A former chief operating officer for developer Bob Lang,
who built the hotel in 2006 as well as other Colonial-
style buildings in downtown Delafield, Gerbitz has been
working toward buying the hotel for several months. In
April, he described seeing untapped potential in the
upscale facility. At the time, he pledged significant
money would be spent on promotion and marketing if the
deal went through.
