Water-damaged Duluth Radisson reopens after 3-month closure

Just in time for the busy summer tourism season, the Radisson hotel in downtown Duluth is once again welcoming guests after being closed for three months, the News Tribune reports. The 268-room property reopened Thursday morning after more than $3 million in repairs and new utilities.

A broken water line in March flooded the Radisson's lower level, knocked out power and forced roughly 80 guests to other nearby hotels.

“We missed Memorial Day weekend, graduations, but Grandma’s Marathon will fill up the city,” Jeff Briner, the hotel’s general manager, told the newspaper.

WDIO notes the Radisson was originally set to open again in May, but it took longer than expected to get parts and equipment needed for repairs.

"We look forward to a great business we've got a lot of rooms booked a lot of functions and meetings. We have a wedding this weekend, and a wedding next weekend so we're excited," Briner told the station.

The Radisson Hotel Duluth-Harborview has been part of the city's downtown area for more than 40 years, according to the Northland NewsCenter.
