Guests checking into the four Elmhurst hotel--Courtyard by Marriott, Extended Stay America, Clarion Hotel Conference Center and SpringHill Suites by Marriott--not only enjoy a great stay, they also contribute to the City's visitor and tourism initiatives.
Elmhurst funds a variety of activities to enhance tourism, cultural life and commerce using a portion of the fund generated by a room rental tax (4%) at the four hotels.
Hotel/motel tax revenue generates funding for both the Elmhurst Visitor & Tourism Department and the City's Community Grant Program, which provides financial support fo the museums, parades and special events.
