The art moderne building was constructed in 1937 as the John Mariner Building, a commercial office building using cast-in place concrete with a limestone exterior and was the first centrally air-conditioned commercial office building in Milwaukee. The interior of the building was completely reconstructed in 1998 to Department of Interior standards and is listed on the Historic Register. The decor of the hotel, a blend of Art Deco and the 1930s European Art Moderne, flows with the streamlined design of the Art Deco building. The tranquil ambiance created in the hotel was achieved through the use of smooth curves and ovals, natural fibers, warm colors and soft, recessed lighting. Author Ray Bradbury claims, "The Hotel Metro is superb. If I didn’t look out the window, I’d think I was in Paris."
