“Still a Great Place to Stay (with a couple caveats!)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The Landmark is one of the hotels we stay at over and over again as we visit Marquette.

The Pros: The location is perfect - right downtown, walking distance to shopping, bars and food. The hotel is very nicely appointed. The staff is very friendly - from the front desk to the bartenders to housekeeping. The Pub is a great place to grab a drink, watch some baseball and grab a meal. Room service is fast, hot and delicious. The rooms are (for the most part) spacious and very comfortable with large bathrooms and great views. Finally - it's less expensive than the new Hampton Inn a few blocks away.

The Cons: We love the Landmark, but there are a couple issues.

Noise! We were on the second floor and we could hear the solo-acoustic guy in the pub singing away until he stopped. In the pub itself, he was so loud it was nearly impossible to talk. I understand the attraction of live entertainment, but they should turn they guy down a bit so partons can talk and guests can enjoy some peace in their rooms. This was not an issue when we've stayed on higher floors.

Noise! (#2) Monday morning, 7:05am the city started tearing up the sidewalk right under our room. There were jackhammers and compressors and trucks blaring. It was truly unbearable. Of course, the hotel can't be held responsible for this - but I would encourage them to raise the issue with the city because it was a seriously miserable situation for a couple very early hours of the day. I'm sure the city could have timed the work better than 7am in front of the only hotel downtown. That's no way to encourage visitors to your community!

Noise! (#3) We've had the repeated issue of slamming doors in the hallways. This seems to be largely inline with Saturday weddings (and Friday pre-parties). It's been fairly consistent the last few times we've stayed here. It would be great if they could put some mechanisms on the doors to minimize the slamming factor. It's an old hotel, and with that comes some extra noise - we understand that - but I think some corrective measures could be taken here.

Our last real issue is that they could use an upgrade of the mattresses. The last couple rooms we've had have had very hard, uncomfortable mattresses.

Despite the Cons, we really do love this hotel and would encourage our friends to stay there. It would be really great to see a couple of the noise issues addressed. See you soon Marquette!

After sitting abandoned for years it is good to see the Landmark reopened, joining in the resurgence of Marquette. Excellent location, okay, maybe a few blocks down the hill would have eased the walk.

The bill for three nights, two breakfasts and one lunch was $601. I thought a good value. The lobby is very good and the rooms are fine. The restoration is not elegant, plastic tiled showered stalls, antiquish but mismatched furniture, but these seemed to be of very minor distractions. Hotel staff very friendly and casual, wait staff in main dining room excellent, okay in Pub. Food was good in the main dining room, after spending years in the U.P. I have not found excellent food very often so thought the food was quite good for the area. Pub food was pub food, not good but at least satisfactory.

There is a good feel to this hotel, you enjoy entering it and feel at home. The value was good. I would stay here again, and will. Marquette has worked hard, and successfully, to establish itself, and this hotel is a fine example of a refurbished city.

I love beautiful, old timeless hotels and this is one of them. Absolutely gorgeous, antique furniture in our room and simply beautiful; one of the most lovely rooms I have ever stayed in. Comfortable, nice sheets, pillows, etc.. Very spacious, comfortable chairs, huge bathroom, no complaints on this one!

Room Tip: A view of lake superior would be a plus of course!

This was a good choice for our stay in Marquette. We try to stay at historic hotels whenever possible. The Landmark Inn is nicely restored. Lovely lobby. Our room (lilac) was very comfortable and had a nice view of the lake and down town. Great location. We enjoyed a walk to the beautiful harbor park area and maritime museum. Pretty reasonable price also.

Room Tip: Stay on upper level facing the lake for the view.

Marquette is centrally located in the Upper Peninsula, good jump off point. This hotel is in the center of Marquette. It has been totally renovated and is the luxurious hotel it was in the past. Elegant lobby and dining room, rooms were very comfortable and larger than I expected for a vintage hotel. Ample parking.

We used the Penthouse Suite for a bachelorette party and it was great. The staff was very helpful and everything was clean. We had breakfast down in the restaurant and the food was delicious and ok priced.

Not only is Marquette a beautiful area to explore but the Landmark Inn is the frosting on the cake overlooking beautiful Lake Superior. Our party had 4 rooms and it was fun to see the different décor/theme in each room. All the staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating in making sure we enjoyed our stay. The Inn is well maintained and very clean. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back.
