The first newly built, branded, full-service hotel in the last 30 years is now open on Eau Claire’s Southeast side.
Holiday Inn Eau Claire South, 4751 Owen Ayres Ct, is located near the intersection of US Interstate 94 and U.S. 53 near Globe University. It boasts 130 rooms, 80 of which can connect in the 90,000 square-foot building. Connected to the lodging component of the hotel is Des Moines-based chain Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse which serves an assortment of steaks and pasta.
The hotel is aimed at attracting traveling business people, according to Thomas Larson, President of the hotel’s managing company. Its amenities reflect the business focus with ergonomic work stations, high-speed internet access, and over 3,500 square-feet of meeting space. A fitness room and indoor pool with a large deck area capable of housing more casual meetings also add to the appeal for business travelers.
The new hotel is estimated to add $13 million annually to Eau Claire’s direct visitor spending.
