For more than 50 years after its opening its doors in 1924, the Hotel Northland hosted a multitude of guests, ranging from Eleanor Roosevelt, JFK, Richard Nixon, and countless NFL players.
The hotel’s history is intricately intertwined with the history of Green Bay. The hotel was converted to low-income apartments in 1979, but the expansion of the Wisconsin State Historic Tax Credit in 2013 made the redevelopment of the hotel into a Marriott Autograph collection possible.
The 9-story, 160 room hotel accessed $8.5 million in historic tax credits, and now contributes to Green Bay’s thriving downtown.
