      Dozens tour new hotel on Marquette's lakeshore

      Dozens of people in Marquette took a tour Saturday of the brand new Hampton Inn.

      The owners of the four story, beach front hotel wanted to give the community an opportunity to see it before it officially opens.

      The hotel features 84 rooms, 11 of them are suites. It also includes a salt water pool and whirlpool, as well as a fitness center and a common room, dubbed the social hub.

      Many residents of Marquette were impressed by the newest addition to the lakeshore.

      "Spectacular, I've never seen a hotel with this many gorgeous views from every window," said Bryan Dixon, a Marquette resident. "It's very open and modern and comfortable. We're really excited to have it be part of the community."

      The hotel will begin taking reservations on July 20.
