Housed in an iconic, industrial revolution era sandstone building, The Vault Hotel is a modern twist on a historic Houghton, MI bank—complete with teller windows, salvaged bank boxes, and other curios.
A massive bank vault serves as the inspiration for the interior design throughout the hotel, with each floor bringing to life definitive personas of wealth in dynamic style.
Guests visiting and staying on the first level will enjoy gilded details and jewel tones of emerald and ruby. Metallic fixtures and ornate patterns reign.
The first level Vault Chamber room is built around the original Houghton National Bank super vault. Sip libations in the vault chamber itself, encased by 1800’s era steel railroad beams and 18 inches of fortified concrete. There is a two ton impenetrable vault door complete with original hardware... marvel at it all from the comfort of your bed.
Guests visiting and staying on the second level are surrounded by modern, sleek lines of geometric patterns. Experience a neutral palette with pops of color.
Welcome to striking style and simple elegance. Wandering through you will experience a sudden hallway or exposed brick archway. You’ll walk on richly designed flooring patterns and textures. You’ll see sleek lighting schemes that compliment interesting period photographs. You’ll delight in your contemporary bathroom with Kohler fixtures all the way.
Guests visiting and staying on the third level are greeted by moody contrast- in colors, pattern, and punchy graphics. Tailored lines are challenged by bold details.
Every guest room offers a unique view of downtown Houghton. Sit in the giant archway windows on comfortable window benches in every room. See the busier main thoroughfare or breathe in pure Michigan Upper Peninsula air on rooftop patios. Capture a grand view of the Portage Canal or take a jaunt along the historic downtown streets.
The counting room
Not just a bar.
Escape to this hideout snuggled into the basement fortress of the Vault Hotel. The Counting Room is an exclusive venue with limited access and seating. But you don’t need a secret password to get in…you just need to be a hotel guest.
Leave your everyday behind, and let The Vault experience take you into another realm of sophistication and desires.
