This hotel really deserves an "excellent" review, but for just one "hiccup" I decided that a "very good" review was a fair choice. My husband and I decided to visit the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to view the fall colors and diverse natural attractions in that part of the state. Not having any plans in mind, we decided to go to Marquette, visiting Picture Rocks and Tahquamenon Falls State Park along the way. More about those in another review. We arrived at the Landmark in on a Thursday afternoon for a two night stay. Upon our arrival at the Inn, located on Front Street in the heart of Marquette, we were pleasantly surprised by the location and the ambience of this historic and attractive Inn. Our room was super clean, large and very inviting and decorated with period pieces of the early 1900's. The large bathroom with a plethora of towels, was clean and afforded all the amenities necessary for our stay. After a long day of travel we decided to have our dinner at the hotels premier restaurant, Capers. Fine dinning at its best along with wonderful service. Kayla, our waitress was charming and addressed all of our request with a smile and efficiency, pure pleasure. We started with the Crab Cakes and the Capers Salad that we shared. For the main course my husband opted for the Tenderloin Bordelaise and I requested the Rack of Lamb, the presentation was a feast for the eyes. Both main courses were delectable and perfectly done and the desserts were just as wonderful. The following morning we again decided in having breakfast at Capers, outstanding!! That evening (Friday) we decided once again to have diner at Capers, not realizing that without reservation it would be a difficult endeavour, the front desk suggested the North Star Lounge at the top of the Inn. The lounge offerings are from the kitchens of Capers and Northland Pub within the Inn, with a wide selections and options. My husband decided on the Rueben and I the Butternut Ravioli in a Saffron Creme sauce, I still dream about them. Sitting at the pinnacle of the Inn at sunset was magnificent, with its wrap around windows we took in all of Marquette at night fall. Our last morning at the Inn we decided on breakfast at Capers. I believe that when traveling, one should always diversify, unfortunately I did not heed my own mantra. Needless to say..that breakfast was a disaster. We were told that the kitchen staff was having issues and not getting along, WHAT?? I will not divulge of what transpired, it is pointless and the only thing that I can and will say is that the Landmark Inn needs to employ people that are respectful of their job and put childish behaviour aside. The hotel General Manager should hire staff that will represent this beautiful and amazing establishment with respect for its customers and guests with finesse, which was lacking.
