This whimsical and romantic 350 square foot suite honors Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Fascination with Earhart, who was originally from Atchison, Kansas, continues today after the pioneer and author disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean in July of 1937. This suite is a tribute to her bold and playful character as it features a beautiful queen bed and plush mattress, an antique dresser and mirror, chest of drawers, and two reading chairs. The suite overlooks the Historic Elgin Hotel courtyard and includes a spacious walk-in closet with a mini-frig and plush robes and slippers. The private bath features the amazing two-person “fun tub” fronted by an electric fireplace and a separate walk-in glass shower. Suite 309 can be combined with 310 and 311 for a three-room suite with a bonus private living area.

In 1878, Fred Harvey started the first of his eating house-hotel establishments along the AT&SF railroad in Florence, Kansas, just 13 miles southeast of Marion.  Harvey is credited with creating the first restaurant chain in the United State. Harvey and his company became leaders in promoting tourism in the American Southwest in the late 19th century so it is only fitting that an Elgin suite would recognize his accomplishments. This 235 square foot suite is adorned with a breathtaking king-size canopy bed featuring a plush mattress, an antique dresser and mirror, and a reading chair.  The suite includes a private bath with shower/tub combo and an optional connecting door to Suite 204.
