Where we offer you the romance of the South of France...

without the attitude 

Located in beautiful downtown Alma, Wisconsin, Hotel de Ville  provides a great get-away for anyone with an appreciation the history of a river town and a taste for the French countryside.  The Hotel de Ville is the only hotel in Alma with river views from every Suite as it is actually on the river. We offer check in 24 hours a day and have banquet facilities and the coffee shop available.  We are located very near to all three local restaurants, and the majority of the wonderful and unique art galleries in Alma. Parking is plentiful at this end of town.

If you do feel that you can not afford the Hotel de Ville, even though complete suites can start at $70.00,  do stop by the hotel and ask for a tour of an open suite as thousands of visitors to Alma have done.  All five suites hold one of a kind treasures, like signed  french  Mene bronzes, signed Dali artworks, a chandelier from a Vanderbilt mansion, mirrors and bombe chests from the old Sheridan Ritz Hotel in Minneapolis or the like.  There are over 1,200 crystal prisms on the chandeliers in the Grand.  Not the kind of thing you will ever see elsewhere, I promise. The hotel is truly a destination hotel.

Four fully restored historic buildings, built in 1861, 1867-1869, and 1938, located at or near 305 North Main Street, make up the hotel.  The Grand builiding is the oldest brick building in Alma and is on the National Historic Register.  It was the final stopping point in the days when the paddle boats could go no further up the Mississippi River than Alma.

The Hotel de Ville offers old world charm with our meticulous attention to saving every bit of the original living quarters as possible, while providing you with amenities unavailable to the early residents of the buildings including  luxury linens,completely up to date private bathrooms, air conditioning, renovated full kitchens, wifi, and flat screen televisions for our DVD collection. Don't forget that all of the Hotel bedrooms have quality queen or king size pillow top mattresses which is not at all the norm in Alma!

We are sure you will love our secret garden as well, complete with bronze sculptures and fountains, located behind the main hotel building. It has been on television several times and is one of our huge draws.  You'll love the castle wall enclosing the secret garden and the hobbit house there as well.  The garden was featured on The Wisconsin Gardener TV show and in BIG RIVER Magazine in June of 2015 as well. Guests love the eagle watching out their own window.

We are thrilled that after 13 years most of our guests have returned again and again.  Some have made it a regular quick vacation retreat and stop in to relax every few months during our season.  Some have chosen a favorite suite, while others try a new one each time they visit us. The Hotel de Ville is in a class of its own.
