A historic hotel in Sioux City will reopen in August -- 44 years after it closed.
The 10-story Warrior hotel in downtown Sioux City and adjacent Davidson building have been developed as an Autograph Collection by Marriott Hotel. It will have 148 rooms and 22 luxury apartments.
The developer Restoration Iowa says people have already been putting down deposits to secure one of the apartments, but there’s still several left. He says renters will have access to all of the Warrior’s amenities. Those include a pool, fitness center, sauna, salon, restaurant and bar.
The hotel will open August 27. 92 rooms will be taking reservations. The apartments in the Davidson could open as early as mid-September.
