January 26th, 1972 – On This Day In Sioux Falls History, the grand opening of the Holiday Inn City Centre in Downtown Sioux Falls, exactly 50 years ago! So I suppose a great big HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! is in order!

The hotel has been a bedrock in Sioux Falls Downtown for half a century! They were there when DTSF was the place to be, they persevered through the years of neglect when the area began wane, and they’ve helped lead the charge in revitalization!

The Holiday Inn City Centre has played host to many outstanding and famous American who have graced our great City! Elvis stayed here twice, blocking off the top three floors each time at the property. President H W Bush spoke and held a fundraiser for @senjohnthune at the property back in 2002. It was also the Ballroom of choice for Prom, Formal, and Themed dances for all of us during our high school years!

Here’s to another 50 years, and more, to the Holiday Inn City Centre!
