Hotel Elkhart

Hotel Elkhart, at the corner of Main and Marion streets in downtown Elkhart, will open later this year. Costs to the City of Elkhart are bigger than expected.

ELKHART — Unforeseen issues will cost the city another $360,000 for upgrading a parking lot and the streets around Hotel Elkhart.

The city Redevelopment Commission originally found $700,000 for improving the Jauriet public parking lot and parts of Marion, Hug and Main streets around the hotel. Marion Street is being reconstructed to realign vertically with the new hotel main entrance and add short term parking on the street’s south side.
