About

A beloved landmark in the heart of downtown Elkhart, Indiana, Hotel Elkhart is a historic wedding venue with an undeniable jazz-age grandeur. Since 1923 this stylish property has been reinvented and restored, effortlessly weaving its beautifully aged artistic style with modern-day refinement. From its luxurious suites to the elegant ballroom, every inch of this 93-room grand hotel has a unique story to share. The venue welcomes you and your loved ones to come and share your own with all the splendor it deserves.

Facilities and Capacities

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. The only full-service hotel in the city, the venue features two restaurants, a lively rooftop bar, and a signature ballroom. Located on the 9th floor, The Aria Ballroom is the property's jewel, perfectly suited for a vibrant wedding celebration or ceremony. With views of the downtown district, this lavish space comfortably hosts up to 160 guests who can dine, dance, and romance under the glow of art-deco-inspired chandeliers. Elsewhere, you can share a craft cocktail for welcome drinks or a nightcap in the High Note rooftop bar, cozying up next to warm fire pits. At the end of the evening, a complimentary suite will provide the setting for your first night as newlyweds. Outfitted with local artwork and gorgeous crafted furnishings, the hotel's rooms are designed with every comfort in mind. You can book entire blocks so guests can relax into your destination wedding and explore all the cultural pleasures Elkhart has to offer.
