With the majesty of Lake Superior on one side, the rolling terrain of historic downtown Marquette on the other and decades of history within its walls, the name chosen for the Landmark Inn is, if anything, an understatement. It opened in 1930 as the Hotel Northland and instantly became the social center of this Michigan town, hosting a wide array of period celebrities and stars, including Amelia Earhart, George C. Scott, Abbott and Costello, and Louis Armstrong.
By the mid-1970s the historic hotel in Marquette fell on hard times, closing in 1982—only to undergo a massive rebirth in 1995 after a major, award-winning restoration. When you step into the lobby of today’s Landmark Inn, six massive chandeliers dangle from the ceiling, which only seem bigger as you ascend the original, all-marble staircase leading to the loft area of Northland Pub.
These historic details—reinforced by stained-glass windows and the chandelier in Capers Restaurant, salvaged from Old Marquette City Hall—evoke the historic building's glory days. Much of the furniture throughout the hotel’s 62 rooms and suites and public areas are antique, but in every other way the Landmark Inn is entirely modern, from its state-of-the-art health spa and in-room Jacuzzis®, in-room high speed internet and business center. Walk to shops and clubs or on the paved 17-mile bike path that surrounds Marquette Harbor. The Landmark Inn is 100% Smoke Free. Simply put, the only thing the Landmark Inn overlooks is Lake Superior. Discover a place that time forgot, but you never will.
The director and actors from the 1959 movie "Anatomy of a Murder" stayed here while they filmed at the Marquette Courthouse.
