The Great Dame of downtown Elkhart practically hums with a history of hosting high dignitaries. Bob Hope and JFK are just some of the guests who have graced Hotel Elkhart's unique grounds, much of which still retains its original luster. Under the skillful hands of local craftsmen, the lobby's terrazzo, marble floors, and exquisite moldings feel as polished now as in the roaring twenties.
