The Marion Hotel was located in Little Rock, Arkansas, and at eight stories, it was the tallest building from its opening in 1907 until 1911. As a luxury hotel, The Marion hosted many famous visitors over the years, including President Harry Truman, Eleanor Roosevelt, Douglas MacArthur, and Helen Keller. Pulitzer Prize winning author, Richard Ford, spent his childhood and adolescent summers at the hotel visiting his grandparents, who lived on the premises. The Marion Hotel was demolished in 1980 to make way for a new hotel and convention center.
