St. Joseph accommodations across from Civic Arena

Our riverfront hotel is situated across the street from Civic Arena and just a few blocks from the historic Jesse James Home, making the Radisson an ideal base for exploring St. Joseph. Our guests love learning about the city’s history at the Pony Express Museum, and families who are in town for summer vacation can’t get enough of the St. Joseph Aquatic Park, just two miles east of the hotel. We are also close to Missouri Theatre, the historic Patee House and the Glore Psychiatric Museum, which has been rated one of the 50 most unusual museums in the country.
