South side drive of Clarion Hotel Milwaukee Airport


As you pull into the Four Points Sheraton Hotel parking lot drive past the Front Doors and continue on down this side drive (you'll actually be coming from back to front in this picture).


Clarion Hotel Milwaukee Airport Conference Center Entrance


You'll see on the right this overhang with "Conference Center" upon it - that's our entrance. (If you happen to park out front by the Front Doors you can still get to our rooms - it's just a much longer walk with stairs involved.)



Upon entering the building (the left side of this photo) our 3 rooms will be in the left corner (the center of this photo). Just to the left the column (the center of this picture) are the bathrooms and water fountains. (Yes I wrote something other then bubblers.....;)
