SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The Comfort Inn and Suites – Sanford Sports Complex will be one of the first of the new Comfort “Rise & Shine TM ” prototype in the country and is scheduled to be completed by spring of 2023. A groundbreaking ceremony was held May 25 to kick off construction and included remarks from the leadership of MinnKota Hospitality, LLC., Sanford Health and city and community leaders.
“We feel this is one of the best locations in the country,” said Eric Seljeskog, Managing Member for MinnKota Hospitality, the management group building the hotel. “The number of tournaments and activities planned at the Sanford Sports Complex combined with the growing business and community in Northwest Sioux Falls puts this hotel in a very convenient and desired location for families and business travelers alike.”
With the scheduled grand opening of 18 baseball, softball and multi-purpose fields in late summer, the Sanford Sports Complex is expected to bring in one million additional visitors to Sioux Falls over the next five years.
“This is the right partner and the right time to bring a second hotel option to the Sanford Sports Complex for families and travelers,” said Troy Giegling, Sanford Sports vice president of business development. “As we expand our opportunities for young athletes and their families, it’s vital to provide our guests with more rooms within walking distance of where they will be competing and cheering on their teams.”
The groundbreaking site will be located just southwest of the Blue Rock Bar & Grill. The physical address is 3900 N Hercules Ave Sioux Falls, South Dakota 57107.
