“What a great way to end 2017.” Said Brian Wogernese, President & CEO of Cobblestone Hotels. “With the new downtown Menomonie location, comes a partnership with UW Stout, something we are really proud of. I have been highly anticipating the completion of the renovation at the Merrill location, and was blown away at the outcome; it is a brand-new hotel.”
“Opening the Gering location brings our open locations in Nebraska to 12.” said Jeremy Griesbach, President of Development of Cobblestone Hotels. “The growth in this state is something we attribute to the hard work by all of our local ownership groups to help progress the growth of the brand here in Nebraska.”
