The Hotel Northland is a historic hotel building on North Adams Street in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin. It is listed on the Wisconsin State Register of Historic Places.[2] The Hotel Northland opened on March 21, 1924 as the largest hotel in Wisconsin.[3] Away teams playing against the Green Bay Packers would stay here and it is one of the stops on the Packers Heritage Trail.

Many famous guests are associated with the hotel, such as Lon Chaney, John F. Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Vincent Lombardi. It was also the location where Senator Eugene McCarthy - then running for president in the 1968 Democratic Primary - was given the news by Senator Ted Kennedy, that his brother Robert F. Kennedy, would be announcing his presidential run the following day.[4]

On December 11, 2013, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker visited Hotel Northland and signed a Historic Tax Credit Bill.

On December 11, 2013, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker visited Hotel Northland and signed a bill offering nearly $7 million in tax credits toward a $35 million renovation project aimed at revitalizing the property back to a boutique hotel.[5] Construction began in January 2016.[6]
