The foremost authority on tourism in the land of 10,000 lakes is Explore Minnesota. The organization recently decided to run a piece on some of the most interesting places to stay in Minnesota for those looking for a unique twist to their travels. Winona’s Riverport Inn made the list.
Explore Minnesota’s Erica Wacker begins her piece, writing, “When you’re traveling, a hotel is much more than a place to sleep. Sure, things like swimming pools, Wi-Fi access and free breakfast are great. But if you’re looking for something truly unique, look no further than these Minnesota properties, which offer sleeping quarters, history and other quirks that can’t be found anywhere else.”
About Winona’s Riverport Inn, Wacker states, “Most of the rooms at the Express Suites Riverport Inn are standard hotel fare, with the exception of two: The ’57 and ’59 Chevy suites, which feature retro decor and real Chevy convertibles that have been transformed into beds. Lay back and pretend you’re at the drive-in, and enjoy the views of Sugar Loaf bluff from the attached patio.”
Wacker’s list also includes such fabled Minnesota stays as Fitger’s in Duluth and Naniboujou Lodge in Grand Marais, as well as less conventional spots such as teepees and yurts at State Parks.
