Walk to the La Crosse Center or Riverside Park

Located near the Mississippi River, the Radisson hotel in La Crosse, WI lies adjacent to the La Crosse Center, which hosts many conferences, conventions and shows 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. Another short walk will take you to the Riverside International Friendship Gardens, a peaceful place to view gardens inspired by many different cultures. If you’d like to find things to do outside of the city, head to Mt. La Crosse for skiing or take in the stunning views from Grandad Bluff Park. Our hotel also offers complimentary shuttle service to La Crosse Regional Airport (LSE) and the Amtrak station.
