The Landmark Inn is located on North Front Street in Marquette, Michigan. The historic hotel began life in 1917, when the foundation was originally laid for what would be the Hotel Northland. Construction lasted off and on for thirteen years and the building finally opened in January of 1930. The hotel, overlooking Lake Superior, was the focal point for entertainment in downtown Marquette. Amelia Earhart visited the Northland in 1932, and Bud Abbott and Lou Costello stayed here in 1942 while performing a show at the local American Legion. There are rooms named for them in the hotel. Other guests over the years included the cast and crew of the 1959 film Anatomy of A Murder, including James Stewart, George C. Scott and Lee Remick, who stayed here while filming scenes at the Marquette Courthouse. Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Maya Angelou and the Rolling Stones have all spent time here in the past. As with many older structures the hotel claims to be haunted - a grieving lover mourns in the Lilac Room. The hotel fell into disprepair by the 1970's and closed in 1982. After extensive renovations and restoration the Northland reopened in 1995 as the Landmark Inn. It is part of the Historic Hotels of America.
