An example of one of Michigan City's classic guest rooms with
its standardized late 1960s amenities and decor.
& Lower: Set in the Northland, Michigan City was
built with an indoor all-weather swimming pool. Note that in its
first iteration, the pool building was likely near the front of
the property and offered walls of glass to promote the experience
of being outside while in! Thus in the dead of winter, bundled
up snow-machiners could gape at the scantily clad bathers and
vice-versa. By its Hampton Inn days, the considerably smaller
replacement pool structure at the rear of the site had few such
windows on the world--no doubt to reduce the costs associated
with winter heating!
