Holiday Inn RiverCentre
A chain standard in a superior location.
In the spring of 2001, this property underwent a $10 million renovation. The old hotel was gutted, and 196 new rooms emerged. Not only was a pool added, the business facilities were markedly upgraded. The final result: an incarnation worthy of the excellent locale, right across from the Xcel Energy Center. The front entrance is actually at the back of the building by the parking lot. Although the lobby isn't the place for lounging, it's attractive and bright. The rooms don't inspire superlatives, but they're clean and comfortable. Accommodations on the south side offer expansive river views along with a little street noise.
