The Elkhart Hotel at full capacity this weekend after its grand reopening


ELKHART, Ind. (WNDU) – For the first time in 50 years, the hotel opened to the public and last weekend it was at full capacity.

“We were full. I mean, we were all on the bridge. Everyone was doing what they could, ”said Rob Scrogham, a hotel maintenance worker, who helped select some of the historic items.

With Notre Dame’s game this weekend and the hotel’s return to Michiana, people have flocked to see this century-old building come to life again.

The hotel has 93 curated rooms, 2 restaurants, a ballroom, meeting spaces, and a rooftop bar, and the developers have captured Elkhart’s story in great detail.

“And I mean it goes back in history, they really took their time and their pride in what they built,” Scrogham said.

The developers told us that it took about four years to complete this project, preserving the original hotel as much as possible.

With the growth of businesses in downtown Elkhart, the hotel was just what the community needed to support this.

“I imagine we’ll be full quite often,” said Scrogham.

The Elkhart Hotel tells the story of Elkhart and all of the history of the city, and now, nearly a century after the hotel originally opened, guests and employees are thrilled to be a part of their new chapter.
