Re: The old Radisson

The original Radisson was opened in 1909, closed in 1981, and razed in 1982(I watched the demolition.) The new hotel opened in 1987.

The old Radisson

The new Radisson is actually the same old innards with with an 80s façade.

Love that dragon!

Rather a different vibe than the current decorations in that area.

There's still a Radisson

But only Dayton's(now Macy's) remains from the 1910 photo. It's to the left behind the skyways.

Dayton's As Well

Probably the original Dayton's Department Store as well - parent company of Target.
