Walk to the La Crosse Center or Riverside Park

Overlooking the Mississippi River, Radisson Hotel La Crosse lies adjacent to the La Crosse Center, which hosts many conferences and conventions throughout the year. Just a few steps away from the hotel you’ll find Riverside Park, where you can sit and watch barges pass on the river, and another short walk will take you to the Riverside International Friendship Gardens, where you can view gardens inspired by many different cultures.

If you’d like to venture out of the city, ski at Mt. La Crosse or take in the stunning views from Grandad Bluff Park. When it’s time to leave, our hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to La Crosse Regional Airport (LSE) and the Amtrak station. Directions to the hotel are available here.
