Stretched along the Mississippi River, La Crosse in Wisconsin is one of the prettiest cities you will find in the state. Whether you want to stroll in the beautiful outdoors or enjoy La Crosse’s entertainment and arts scene, you will find plenty to do in this small city no matter your preference.

Where to Stay in La Crosse, Wisconsin

Most hotels are located in downtown La Crosse, right by the river. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, and more to keep you entertained day and night. A particular local favorite is the The Wine Guyz, which serves a number of craft beers and specialty wines. Once you have quenched your first, check out Hixon House, which dates back to the 1850s and is a great example late Victorian life.

Looking to get outside to enjoy the scenery? Then, stay near any of La Crosse’s parks or country clubs. Pettibone Park has been open since 1901 and is great for kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. Plan a picnic or take a walk around Myrick Park. Alternatively, you can hit up the fantastic wooden playground if you are traveling with kids and want them to get their exercise fix. Next, go for a walk or run in Riverside Park for the best views of the Mississippi, and head to Viroqua Country Club to work on your golf swing.

Even if you are not religious, you may want to visit the mesmerizing Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Fairly new, the shrine is the first Catholic structure to be designed classically in over half a century and has acres of beautiful gardens. For a little more adventure head to any of the mountains or bluffs near La Crosse. Trempealeau Mountain is great for hiking as are Brady’s Bluff Prairie and Perrot State Park. For the most scenic view of the city, though, you will want to visit Grandad Bluff.

Should you be interested in Wisconsin’s wine scene, you may want to stay near the many wineries and vineyards near La Crosse. Moreover, why not stop by the Elmaro Vineyard in nearby Trempealeau, Branches Winery in Westby, or Vernon Vineyards in Viroqua? Beer lovers will also want to schedule in a visit to City Brewery. Do not forget to pay your respects to the World’s Largest Six-Pack, which is exactly what the name suggests.

Radisson Hotel La Crosse

really nice hotel at a wonderful location

We made this hotel a meeting place for extended family for the Easter weekend. It fit the bill perfectly. the staff was friendly, helpful and professional. The place was VERY clean from the public bathrooms to our room. We used the lounge/sitting area for a few hours and it was pleasant and comfortable. the beds were exceptionally comfortable (and the extended family agreed). some of us have high expectations and this place met and sometimes exceeded them! ways it could improve - the pool area flooring was uneven enough to have a lot of standing water. The 7th floor "extras" or upgrade is in a small area - it'd be nice to have a bigger window to enjoy the river view. if you hit this area right after a group has left, there won't be much --it'll have to be re-stocked.

Courtyard by Marriott La Crosse

XMas weekend and all was quiet-even housekeeping

SO nice facility, room was tight for 3 (no counter space around sink, one towel bar) good location, but housekeeping made it to the room 1 of 3 days ('only one working due to holidays' ) you'd think they'd prioritze the stayovers? We were on the street side which would have been fine but for the 1am snow clearing the first night. Given how quiet the hotel was a riverside room would have been nice. (The guests from FL shouldn't be the one's figuring out when the snow removal is) Front desk was more than helpful. Had update the 'local restaurant list' to include Xmas weekend hours (many were closed ). Limited restaurant on site was closed 2 of our 4 nights- no great loss as better options within walking distance. Probably being too harsh but this was the more expensive choice for the week (even the Radisson was cheaper) Booking through Orbitz offered no advantage. Others we were with got suites for the same price. OK business class hotel and good choice for the town.

GrandStay Hotel & Suites

Great hotel, right downtown

This hotel was perfect for us. The price was right and it was within walking distance from downtown and the park where the Rotary has their awesome Christmas lights display. I loved the kitchen and living room area. There was even a huge desk-great if you are a traveling business person! There are also two handy USB plug-in ports by the bed. It would be nice if they were on both sides, not just one. The included breakfast was very good and was open for about 4 hours. We checked out the pool, it was very small and there was a whirlpool to the side of it. Our only complaint was the bed. My husband has an extra firm mattress at home and this was actually firmer than his. So it took us a while to fall into a somewhat uncomfortable sleep. That being said, I plan to come back to the city of LaCrosse for a further visit, and I would stay here again.

AmericInn Hotel & Suites Winona

Always a nice place to stay

We have stayed here multiple times for horse shows. They allow dogs and conveniently put the dog guests on the first floor. This is a big plus for dog owners!
