Depicting the history of the Milwaukee landmark through memories and stories of previous guests, employees, historians and notable local figures, “The Pfister: History & Story” documentary received a Bronze Award at the35th Annual Telly Awards. The documentary takes viewers back in time to experience the grandeur of the hotel, including its evolution since it opened its doors to the public in 1893. Produced in conjunction with z2, located in Waukesha, Wis., the film was selected as a winner in the “Documentary” category. Drawing more than 13,000 entries each year, the Telly Awards serve as the premier awards contest honoring outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions.

In addition to this recognition, the coffee table book, “The History, Art & Imagery of The Pfister Hotel,” also received two awards. Showcasing the remarkable architecture and history of the time-honored hotel, the 283-page publication was an award-winner in the “Photography” category of the 2014 International Book Awards honoring independent authors and publishers from around the world. The hardcover book also received a Finalist Award in the “Photography” category for overall presentation and exceptional writing from the National Indie Excellence® Book Awards, recognizing self-published books across the country.

“The past year has been a very exciting time for The Pfister Hotel and for all of us at The Marcus Corporation as the grand dame hotel celebrated 120 years of luxurious accommodations and legendary service,” said Chris Anderson, senior vice president, Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “From interactions with Elvis to serving as an integral stop on JFK’s presidential campaign, The Pfister Hotel’s legacy encompasses so many stories over its 120 years of service, all of which had yet to be memorialized for future generations until now. Both the documentary and coffee table book help capture these momentous occasions and ensure that these stories will be told for the next 120 years to come.”

“We are incredibly honored to receive two book awards and one Telly Award for these outstanding pieces that recognize the remarkable history and overwhelming beauty of this landmark hotel. We are equally as honored to be able to share the hotel’s extraordinary story with our guests, the Milwaukee community and beyond,” added Anderson.
