As I’ve mentioned in a few of my earlier posts, during pastors conference in Rapid City, we had the opportunity to stay at the Holiday Inn-Rushmore Plaza. We got in on a great group rate for the conference seeing as how their conference was held within the hotel.
Check in was super easy and the lobby was spacious. The lobby then opened up to a main atrium area that featured fountains, as well as a restaurant off to the left. They had two glass elevators to get you to where you needed to be.
Our room was located on the 7th floor, so we always got a nice view of the main floor area on our way up or down.
Our room on the 7th floor was a great location as we had a corner king suite. This prevented a lot of noise you normally would have at hotels from being heard as we we at the end of a hall, plus the hall noise had to travel through the living room are first before making it’s way back to the bedroom. The living room space featured a couch, TV, desk, and wet bar area, complete with a mini fridge and microwave.
Next you passed through a small hall area which had the bathroom off to the right and closet area to the left. It was nice to also have the extra counter space next to the closet where the coffee maker was located.
The bedroom area consisted of the king bed, chair, and TV.
We never tried out the in house restaurant, but I heard from others that the food was quite good. We did spend two nights in the pool area. The pool was often occupied by kids, so we didn’t really utilize that but it was nice and big. It was also nice to have two hot tubs, as it is quite a large hotel and lots of adults love to use them! Even when the pool area was busy, it was spacious enough to not seem crazy!
We really enjoyed our time at the Holiday Inn in Rapid City and hope that it will be the main hub for future pastors conferences in the area (although we’ve already been informed the space wasn’t available to this coming fall!) But hopefully we will have many other wonderful stays here seeing as how it’s also just a short walk through Memorial Park to downtown Rapid City.
