This is a nicely appointed hotel, indoor pool, hot tub, and decent gym facility. Rooms are not recently renovated but clean with all the amenities needed. Hotel does have an odd layout and elevator system, best to ask which elevator take you to the right area as the levels are not all connected. Staff recognizes priority members and has excellent...

Old feel. Bad lighting in the room. The heater took a long time to warm up the room. Good internet access and average breakfast. Water pressure was good. OK for a business trip. Easy trip to the airport.

Great location close to the mall and a lot of other stores. Also a lot of great restaurants near by. Our room was spacious and welcoming. Morning breakfast had quite a few different options to choose from. Clean hotel, would recommend to others and will likely return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Sioux Falls, a city rich in history and a regional hub for corporate and retail services. The history of Sioux Falls revolves around the cascades of the Big Sioux River. The falls were created approximately 14,000 years ago when the last glacial ice sheet redirected the flow of the Big Sioux River. With our hotel's convenient location, you will find us easily accessible to many attractions such as the Empire Mall, Sertoma Butterfly House and Outdoor Campus, Falls Park, the Washington Pavilion and Wild Water West Amusement Park. We are also conveniently located by many restaurants such as Ruby Tuesday and corporate locations such as banks, hospitals, Joe Foss Field Airport, and the Ivy Room Conference Center. Our hotel offers limited shuttle service to the airport and other corporate locations. While in Sioux Falls, make sure to sit along the banks of the mighty Big Sioux River at Falls Park, our city's namesake. While there you can check out the Horse Barn Art Gallery and Falls Park Tower. Welcome to Sioux Falls, the heart of America! ... more   less
