If you need a Hammond hotel that's close to the BP Refinery in Whiting, the Ford Plant, or the steel mills like Arcelor Mittal and US Steel, you're in luck. We're right on a major 80/94 corridor, so it's easy to zip around the neighborhood.

Lakefront activities are a perfect way to pass the time. Guests at this Hammond hotel get to experience the natural beauty of the region. The Pierogi Fest in Whiting is a popular attraction. The South Shore Air and Water Show is another annual event that draws in guests from around the country.

We also welcome visiting professors and families that are in town to check out the local campuses. Both Purdue University Calumet Campus and IUN Northwest campuses are just a short drive away.

Business travelers especially adore this Hammond hotel. Regular guests are employees of the casinos, BP Refinery, and steel mills. Enjoy dining for breakfast and dinner at the on-site Nicky's Pub and Grill.
